, WiZ was rated 4.0 out of 5 stars for light efficacy .
Based on reviews posted on popular review sites, WiZ performs very well in terms of light efficacy relative to other smart lighting brands.
Based on a review posted on cnet.com, WiZ was rated as fairly average for light efficacy relative to competing wireless lighting sellers. Check out the entire review here. Here's a brief quote from this review:
The problem here is that the bulbs aren't as bright as advertised, at least not at the white-light settings you'd expect. Wiz pegs the light output of each bulb at 800 lumens -- about as bright as a standard 60W incandescent bulb -- but in my own tests, the two ends of the white light spectrum (2,700 K and 6,500 K) wouldn't go any higher than 450 lumens. You have to go with a 4,200 K "daylight" setting in the middle of that spectrum in order to hit 800 lumens. ... As for the colors, they're all fairly accurate, but none of them go any brighter than 200 lumens.
Based on a review posted on trustedreviews.com, WiZ was rated as fairly average for light efficacy relative to competing wireless lighting sellers. Check out the entire review here. Here's a brief quote from this review:
WiZ’s range of bulbs consist of light bulbs, with options to change temperature (WiZ Whites), plus colour and temperature bulbs (WiZ Colors) too. Temperature changes give you a choice of 2,700K (cold white) to 6500K (warm white); you can pick from 16 million colours. Options include bayonet, E27, E14 and GU10 bulb fittings. ... I found that the bulbs responded quickly to changes, and the quality of the light bulbs is up there with the Hue bulbs.
One reviewer on techhive.com said WiZ performs well on light efficacy relative to its peers. You can read the full review here. From this review:
From a lighting perspective, WiZ doesn’t have too many new tricks to show off. Lights can be tuned along the white spectrum or set to any color, and they can be dimmed down to nearly nothing. Several dynamic preset modes that cycle through various colors are included, as are two progressive lightening/dimming modes for “wake up” and “bedtime.” You can’t set up your own dynamic configuration, but you can choose a custom static color from a standard color wheel. Colors are vibrant and are largely true to life, though I found it oddly tough to get a solid orange out of the bulbs. Dimming is unfortunately a bit jerky, stepping through brightness levels rather than dimming smoothly.
