LIFX A19 vs. A19+ — What’s Different?

LIFX A19

Night Vision – The biggest difference between the two LIFX Smart bulbs, is the fact that LIFX A19+ includes the night vision ability.

By using 950nm infrared light, it can help infrared cameras see in the dark and its light isn’t visible to the human eye, so it will still look like everything is turned off.

Which is a pretty good advantage from a security standpoint.

Price – The second difference between the two lies in the price.

LIFX A19 is the more affordable model, while A19+ comes at a higher cost with its in-built night vision addition.

So if you don’t mind too much about the night vision function, LIFX A19 would be the more affordable choice to go for.
