I had a bit of an embarrassing moment about 12 years ago when a man came to the door of my house at about 1am, thinking I was a prostitute.
His English wasn’t good, so there was some confusion while he tried to invite himself in and I wondered what on earth was going on.
‘For sex?’ he kept saying, much to my utter bemusement.
‘What?’ I replied, unhelpfully.
‘I come in for sex?’ he kept repeating.
It was all a bit awkward.
Finally he pointed up to Bee’s bedroom window, where I could see that she had left her light on. She was about nine years old and had bought this red light bulb from B&Q for some reason, and had gone to sleep with it on. We lived in a family terraced house in a nice part of a small Somerset town, off the main road, but apparently the logical conclusion to jump to was that I was running a brothel.
So that was a lesson learnt for everyone.
Technology has come a long way since my light bulb/sex worker incident, so I wasn’t deterred when TP-Link got in touch to see if I fancied trying some of their smart Wi-Fi LED bulbs.
Yeah yeah, I know what you’re thinking: light bulbs, that’s hardly the sexiest of topics is it? Well you’re wrong, because these bulbs are AWESOME.
The first one we tried was the smart Wi-Fi LED bulb with colour changing hue.
I’m not sure how it works exactly – I think it’s actual magic – but all you have to do is pop it into your light socket, as you would a normal bulb, follow the instructions to connect it to an app on your phone and TADA! View Post
