Yesterday, Philips Hue introduced its first light chain, and as of today, Festavia can be ordered directly from Philips Hue's online store for 159.99 euros. In the smart home market, there is one competitor in particular that specialized in fairy lights years ago: Twinkly. Today, I would like to take a look with you at the advantages and disadvantages of the two products and who might come out on top in the end.
For many of you, the Christmas tree should already be in your living room. Here, it is traditionally decorated on the fourth Advent and then delights us until January. If you use traditional lighting technology instead of the smart Twinkly fairy lights, you can bring a little more comfort into your home in combination with a smart plug.
About two weeks ago I already announced it: I will have a closer look at Twinkly’s smart lights. I spared no expense and effort for this and dragged my artificial Christmas tree from the attic to the office. There, I took a first look at the Twinkly Gold Edition and can give you the first recommendation right here.
