Syska LED WiFi 7W Desing
The design of the Syska LED is not very much different than any other LED light bulbs available in the market and that’s why it can easily replace any other bulb right now you have in your home. However, there is something noticeable in the design of the Syska LED bulb i.e it has a slim design. The top of the bulb is in a circular disk shape that is tapered to run down to meet the holder edges.
If you see the Syska LED vertically then you will see that it mimics the shape of a triangle. Needless to say, which is not like regular bulbs those are generally in an oval shape at the top. Thus, the rounded edges and triangular shape made it a more stylish setup. The upper part of the bulb looks like glass, however, it is not. That part is made up of plastic which could bear some mishaps while handling the bulb.
The lower part of the bulb feels slightly heavier than the normal LED light bulbs. It is because that holds all the electronic set up along with the Wi-Fi module and it is really commendable, the way the engineers have concealed all of this in a small space.
The bottom of the bulb which is the B22 base module is also the same as the regular which again makes this special bulb usable in ordinary B22 bulb holders (socket).
Overall, the design is really wonderful with a small footprint.
How to install and use Syska smart LED bulb using its app?
Step 1: Take out the bulb from its box and insert it in any B22 holder socket that holds your previous ordinary bulb.
Step 2: Download the Syska Smart Home app for your smartphone. Here are the links for Android and iOS. Make sure your smartphone is connected to the Wi-Fi router where you want to install Syska LED light.

The latency rate of actions triggered on the app for the Syska LED bulb is of few milliseconds, however, we can’t blame totally to app or bulb because it also depends upon the router connectivity.
The color options are also rather great with around 3 million color combinations claimed by the company but in real life, our eyes could hardly notice such extensive color combinations on the bulb except major ones. However, it is possible to get a wide range of colors using the color wheel given on the Syska Smart Home app. Apart from that intensity of brightness and coolness can be controlled using the Syska application. All these options worked extremely well without any complaints.
