Smart bulbs Hiper

I continue to test and study “smart” lamps controlled by Wi-Fi.

Hiper releases 20 models of smart lamps and fixtures, as well as 12 models of smart switches
I tested six lamp models.

All Hiper lamps and luminaires are controlled via Wi-Fi from the app, as well as using voice assistants and smart home systems. Lamps can be turned on and off, their brightness can be adjusted (dimmed), and the color temperature of the light can be changed. Some of the lamps are equipped with additional RGB LEDs, which make it possible to change the color of the lighting.

I measured the parameters of the light of the lamps in different modes: at maximum, average and minimum brightness, in the warmest, neutral and coldest color modes, in the red, green and blue light modes.

Two lamps – a C1 candle and a B1 spot give both white light with different color temperatures and multi-colored lighting – they have five types of LEDs: warm white, cool white, red, green, blue.

The results of my measurements.

The C1 RGB candle lamp in white light modes consumes 5.1-5.2 W and gives 458-544 lumens depending on the color temperature. This lamp is capable of replacing an incandescent lamp with a power of 55-60 watts. At minimum brightness in the warmest light mode, the lamp gives 55 lm (12% of maximum brightness). In color modes, the lamp consumes about 1 W and gives 6-18 lumens depending on the color.

The B1 RGB spot lamp with GU10 base in white light modes consumes 5-5.1 W and gives 399-443 lumens, this is a replacement for a 50 W halogen lamp. The minimum brightness is 11%, the consumption in color modes is also about 1 W, the luminous flux is 7-19 lm.

Both lamps have no light ripple in all modes.

These lamps use “warm” LEDs with a color temperature of 2700K and “cold” 6100K, so the color temperature is adjustable in the range of 2700 – 6100K.

The other four lamps are made using filament technology and are equipped with groups of “warm” and “cold” LEDs, allowing for a smooth change in color temperature.

The results of my measurements.

The measured power consumption of all four lamps is 7.1-7.2 W, the luminous flux is 782-882 lm, they can replace incandescent lamps with a power of 75-80 W.

These lamps have absolutely no ripple at maximum brightness in the warmest and coldest light modes, there is a slight ripple of 1.4-6.4% when mixing the light of “warm” and “cold” LEDs, when the brightness decreases, the ripple increases (5-9% at 50% , 9-18% at 1% brightness). Note that the pulsation of all lamps in all modes is visually indistinguishable.

Filament lamps use “warm” LEDs 2400K, “cold” 5000-5200K, respectively, and the range of color temperature adjustment 2400 – 5000-5200K.

All six lamps have fairly high CRI (Ra) color rendering indices – 81-88.

The mains voltage range of 220-250 V is indicated on the boxes of all lamps. If the mains voltage drops below 220 V, the lamps begin to flicker (for different lamps, the minimum operating voltage was 217-220V), so these lamps should not be used where there is a reduced voltage in the network …

For example, I will give the spectra and measurement results of the C1 RGB candle lamp.

Warm, neutral and coldest light modes.

Modes of red, green and blue colors.

The lamps are built on the Tuya platform, so both the proprietary Hiper IoT application and the standard Smart Life or Tuya applications can be used.

Hiper smart lamps cost from 890 to 1690 rubles. All lamps are guaranteed for 1 year.

A big plus of Hiper lamps is the variety of assortments. As far as I know, only Hiper has a smart spot with a GU10 base, as well as many tinted decorative filament lamps with variable color temperature. Another big plus is the use of the most popular Tuya smart lighting platform, thanks to which Hiper lamps can be controlled together with devices from different manufacturers from a single application.
