  • Ease of Use:Simplifying the setup process, Matter is user-friendly, making smart home technology accessible to everyone.

The Miller Family: A family of six, the Miller house is buzzing with energy, personality, and individual preferences when it comes to technology. Mom, Dad, and the four kids just can’t agree on mobile devices or smart home platforms. They love the latest technology and require a seamless, integrated smart home experience. Matter's cross-compatibility and ease of use, like Sengled’s Matter bulb, make it the go-to choice for this busy family.


Bluetooth Mesh: The Simplest Setup

Key Features and Benefits:

  • Get Started in Seconds:With Sengled’s Bluetooth Mesh smart lighting, like these color bulbs, installing new bulbs or other devices is a breeze, offering near plug-and-play, requiring a few simple prompts, like saying “Alexa, discover my devices.”
  • Adaptable and Scalable:It's ideal for both small and large-scale installations, adapting to various smart home sizes. Bluetooth Mesh can cover large areas by allowing messages to hop from one device to another.
  • Direct Device Communication:Devices can communicate without a central hub, reducing points of failure.

Ideal Persona - Emily, the Trendy Apartment Dweller: Emily lives in a spacious loft and loves hosting parties. Bluetooth Mesh suits her lifestyle perfectly, covering her entire apartment with a stable, scalable network that keeps the party going. She loves the ease of use and the ability to install a new device and let her smart speaker do the rest, getting her up and running in 30 seconds or less.


Zigbee: The Reliable Networker

Key Features and Benefits:

  • Connect Your Entire Home:Zigbee can easily support a large number of connected products, up to 64 smart lights and devices on a single hub. That’s enough capacity to light your entire home and then some.
  • High Compatibility:Zigbee supports a wide range of devices, thanks to its established presence in the smart home market.

Ideal Persona – Mike, the Tech-Savvy Innovator: Mike is a smart lighting expert, a veteran who’s been using technology for decades to enhance his home and add convenience. He has more than 50 smart devices powering his house, all running off one Sengled Zigbee hub. These Zigbee color bulbs are a perfect choice for Mike.


Wi-Fi: The Familiar Powerhouse, Perfect for Newbies

Key Features and Benefits:

  • Ubiquitous:Most homes already have Wi-Fi, making integration of smart devices straightforward.
  • No Hub Needed:Direct connection to the internet without the need for additional hubs. Due to this benefit, Wi-Fi is an excellent choice for someone new to the smart home.

Ideal Persona - John, the Home Office Manager: John is a new homeowner and works full-time from his home office. He’s heard about the benefits of smart lighting and wants to try it out. He loves how his Sengled Wi-Fi lights, like this color A19/E26 bulb, connect to his existing network and don’t require a large investment in hubs and other devices.


In the realm of smart home protocols, there's a perfect match for everyone. Whether you're a tech expert like Mike, a busy family like the Miller’s, a social butterfly like Emily, or a remote professional like John, there's a protocol tailored to your lifestyle. Embrace the future of home automation with Zigbee, Matter, Bluetooth Mesh, or Wi-Fi, and light up your world smartly!
