'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Eve light strip

As someone whose home has been integrated with smart lights, they are a total game changer, offering ways to adjust your lighting to spooky Halloween hues, use voice commands to adjust brightness, and more. For Apple HomeKit users, the Eve Light Strip is on sale for only $41 – a savings of $38.

The Eve Light Strip can add light where it's difficult to add a table lamp, offering customization for your home. You can place it behind your TV – like I did – to build the ambience during spooky Halloween movies, or you can use it behind your bed to add an easy bedtime reading light. Alternately, it's a great option for under shelving, cabinets, and more to make sure you can see clearly throughout the day and night.

It's integrated into the Apple smart home HomeKit system, offering 1800 lumens of brightness at the touch of your iPhone or iPad. You can easily control the lighting, including color selection, switching, brightening, and dimming via the app or with a Siri voice command. It also supports the HomeKit Adaptive Lighting to automatically adjust the color temperature throughout the day.

You can easily set it up within minutes – simply plug it in, attach the Light Strip, and finish setup via the app. It can handle up to 6.6 feet but can be extended for up to 32.8 feet with extensions. You will have to make sure that the 2.4GHz network is enabled on the browser. 

If you have Apple HomeKit and want to add some light pizazz to your home, be sure to pick this up today. We have no idea how long this sale will last. In order to get the deal, be sure to check the extra 20% off coupon and add it to your cart to get the $41 deal. And if you're still wanting to add more smart lights to your home and want to search for other options, be sure to check out our picks for best smart lights.
