Installation and configuration

The Multilaser lamp has technology from the Chinese Tuya, as well as Positivo. Both companies do not openly confirm this, but you only need to integrate them into the application to discover the system behind it. This also means that the installation and configuration process is the same.

Fortunately I had no negative surprises when installing the Smart Lamp at home. First I threaded it on an E27 table lamp and then the configuration can be started when the product starts to flash. For integration, the brand made available the Multilaser Liv application, which even works well and did not present bugs during the tests.

Like other affordable competitors, this model only works over Wi-Fi on the 2.4 GHz frequency, so you need to pay attention to which network you are using, otherwise it may have errors during installation. And even outside the home, you can turn the light on and off via 4G on your phone.

Usage experience (positive and negative points)

The Multilaser lamp is LED, has 10 watts of power and the luminous flux is 800 lumens, that is, it is not so intense, but it is close to rivals. Repeating the error of the Elsys model, this lamp does not offer a varied palette of white. It only has the hottest temperature, 2,700 Kelvin, which in a way brings a sense of comfort to some environments, but it is not ideal for those looking for concentration.

In a small room, the white offered here is not enough to illuminate the room and neither the application will offer solutions to compensate for the absence of cold tones. In a corridor, as I expected, the lighting was better, which also means that the Multilaser lamp works more properly only in smaller spaces.

Back in the room, I tested the colored options. Although the brand emphasizes the 16 million colors, it is unlikely that the consumer will be able to use and get close to all of that. Red, pink, yellow, green and lilac are very dark, and orange is even worse. Blue, cyan and turquoise green are a little more pleasing, yet they are not strong.

Even acquiring another lamp of the same model, I believe that it will be difficult to illuminate any environment with the colors offered. On the other hand, I would recommend Multilaser Liv only for simple table lamps, to decorate the environment, as the performance in this type of equipment can be certain.

The application provided by Multilaser is simple and the color change is made by means of a circle with all options. The predefined modes are available in the “scene” menu: it has “night lighting”, “reading”, “meeting”, “leisure”, “soft”, “colorful”, “colors” and the “pleasant” that could to be called “party”, as it makes the tones change constantly. The user can still change the saturation, control the brightness and speed.

To my surprise, the delay in the color change is very low. It is agile even when switching on and off, contrasting with the competition. Still in the application, I was able to quickly configure and control the lamp by voice command with Google Assistant on Google Nest Audio and Alexa on a 4th generation Echo. The only problem is Tuya’s English instructions, which can hinder more lay consumers and who do not understand the language.

Smart Multilaser Liv Lamp: is it worth it?

It’s not worth it, but there are exceptions.

If you want a smart lamp for a lamp that completes your home decor, then it may be worth purchasing the Smart Lamp Multilaser Liv, but at retail, because on the official website the brand charges R $ 110. For other environments, this model disappointing, as well as the Smart Lamp Wi-Fi Elsys, because it is incoherent to say that it delivers millions of colors, and cold white is not present.

The colored options are average and almost all are dark, but as I always reinforce: this is a limitation of practically all smart lamps – there is still a lot to improve in this sense. As for the application, it is very basic and I missed more resources, like other more specific pre-defined modes. In addition, some information in English from Tuya, which appears mainly during the integration with personal assistants, can disturb lay consumers.

For those who cannot spend a lot of money on a Philips Hue, it is worth analyzing the Smart Lamp Wiz A60, which recently arrived in Brazil. The colored options are not intense, but the white ones brighten up the room and the application is very complete. Positivo’s model, which has a cool color, may also be worth it, but, following the competitors, the color may not please.
