Overview of smart lamps Navigator Smart Home

I continue to test and study “smart” lamps controlled via Wi-Fi.
The Navigator company produces five models of smart lamps, as well as a lamp and a spotlight. I have tested all the lamps.

Navigator Smart Home lamps and fixtures are controlled via Wi-Fi from the application, as well as using voice assistants (including Alice) 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. Non-filament lamps, a lamp and a spotlight are equipped with additional colored LEDs that make it possible to change the color of the lighting (five types of LEDs are installed in such lamps at once: warm white, cold white, red, green, blue).

Navigator now has five models of Navigator Smart Home lamps: the A60 Pear, G45 Bulb, C37 Candle, A60 Filament Pear and ST64 Filament Decorative Lamp. If I’m not mistaken, only the Navigator has a compact G45 smart lamp.

I measured the light parameters of the lamps in different modes: at maximum, medium and minimum brightness, in the modes of the warmest, neutral and coldest color, as well as in the modes of red, green and blue light for lamps equipped with colored LEDs. Color temperature, color rendering index and ripple were measured with an Uprtek MK350D insment. The luminous flux was measured using a half-meter integrating sphere and the same Uprtek MK350D spectrometer. Power consumption was measured with a Robiton PM2 insment. Operation at reduced voltage was controlled using a Suntek TDGC2-0.5 LATR and a Lamptest-1 device.

I’ll start with non-filament smart lamps.

The results of my measurements:

Bulb-pear NLL-A60-10-230-RGBWWW-E27-WiFi in white light modes consumes about 10 W and gives ~ 840-890 lm, depending on the color temperature. This lamp is able to replace an incandescent lamp with a power of 80 watts. At minimum brightness, the lamp gives about 100 lm (11-12% of maximum brightness). In color modes, the lamp consumes about 1.5 watts and gives 17-51 lumens depending on the color.

The bulb lamp NLL-G45-7-230-RGBWWW-E27-WiFi in white light modes consumes about 7 W and gives ~ 650-750 lm depending on the color temperature. This lamp is able to replace an incandescent lamp with a power of 70 watts. At minimum brightness, the lamp gives about 80 lm. In color modes, the lamp consumes about 1 W and gives 7-15 lm depending on the color.

The NLL-C37-7-230-RGBWWW-E14-WiFi candle lamp consumes 6.5 W in white light modes and gives ~ 600-700 lm, depending on the color temperature. This lamp is able to replace an incandescent lamp with a power of 65 watts. At minimum brightness, the lamp is about 80 lm. In color modes, the lamp consumes about 1 W and gives 9-16 lm depending on the color.

For all lamps, the pulsation of light is practically absent at maximum brightness. With a decrease in brightness, a pear lamp appears indistinguishable by the eye (up to 20% at minimum brightness).

When the mains voltage is below the value indicated in the column of the table “Umin”, the lamps start to work incorrectly (the light starts to flicker).

Color rendering indexes CRI (Ra) for all lamps are 81-85, depending on the color temperature.

Spectra and measured parameters in the warmest, neutral and white light modes on the example of a pear lamp.

Spectra in red, green and blue modes.

Filament lamps have two “warm” and two “cold” filaments, so they can change the brightness and color temperature.

The results of my measurements:

The luminous flux of these lamps is highly dependent on color temperature (in neutral mode, both filaments work at full power and the lamps give almost twice as much light as in the warmest or coldest light modes, when only filaments of the same type work).

The NLL-F-A60-8-230-WWW-E27-WiFi bulb in neutral light mode gives 1124 lm, consuming 7.4 W (this is the equivalent of a 95 W incandescent lamp). In the warmest and coldest modes, the lamp consumes 3.9 watts and gives 500-650 lm (equivalent to 55-65 W), but in such modes the lamp will most likely never be used, because its warmest mode is 2260K, and the coldest is almost 7000K . When set to the normal warm light mode of 2700-3000K, the brightness will already be significantly higher, because both types of filaments will work.

Decorative lamp ST64 NLL-F-ST64-8-230-WWW-E27-GD-WiFi consumes 3.8-7.2 W and gives 434-941 lm depending on the color temperature. Its warmest mode is even more yellow – 2200 K, so when used in the 2700-3000K mode, it will be quite a full-fledged equivalent of a 60 W incandescent lamp.

Both lamps have practically no ripple at maximum brightness, and with a decrease in brightness, the ripple increases to 15% in some modes, however, I repeat once again, such a ripple is not visually noticeable.

When the mains voltage is less than 217 V, the brightness of the lamps begins to decrease.

The CRI(Ra) color rendering indices for both lamps are 83-89.

The lamps are powered by the Tuya platform and can be controlled from both the Navigator Smart Home app and Tuya, Smart Life apps or apps from other manufacturers of smart devices on this platform.

The Navigator Smart Home app looks like this:

I didn’t pay attention before that a color music mode appeared on the platform, in which the application, “listening” to music through a microphone, controls the color and brightness of the lamp.

All lamps have a 2 year warranty. They cost from 650 to 1100 *** (Ozone, Wildberries, Market) and are cheaper than many competitors with the same capabilities.

A big plus of Navigator Smart Home lamps is the use of the most popular Tuya smart lighting platform, thanks to which the lamps can be controlled together with devices from different manufacturers from a single application.
