What can you do if you want remote control of these lights, then?
Well, you can accomplish that by popping them into a lamp and then using a smart plug?
Smart Plug for Indoor and Outdoor Lighting
Smart plugs allow you to update the intelligence of traditional lamps and other small appliances.
If you’re looking to take remote control of the flame effect LEDs above, why not invest in the Insteon Remote Control On/Off Module?
Also available in a free version, you’ll also need the Insteon Hub Central Controller for remote control. With this in place, you’ll have the foundation to build out an ambitious connected home with the mighty Insteon ecosystem.
If you're looking for something to jazz up Christmas but lasting through the rest of the year, too, consider one of these awesome smart plugs from the legendary Insteon.
Well, we hope that the selection of smart Christmas decorations has got your creative juices going.
As a parting shot, we’d strongly recommend investing in a smart speaker so you can get the most from automation. Whether you want the revamped original Echo third-generation, the upscale Echo Studio, or one of the new compact smart displays, adding an Echo device to the mix gives you hands-free control of your Christmas decorations.
