Here we got the Liuyang smart floor lamp on our hands and here are our first impressions with this modular smart lamp for your home.
Liuyang Smart Floor Lamp: Overview
The Liuyang Smart Floor Lamp is not just another lamp that lights up your home. Of course, it does that too, but the way it adds convenience to the operation and the output makes it a smart one. Unlike other single-piece tall-standing corner lamps, this ones from Liuyang has a modular design means you can adjust its height according to your wish.

Design and Build Quality
The Liuyang Smart Floor Lamp deviates from the rest of the traditional ones. So much so that it almost goes unnoticed in the corner of my room, unless it casts its light there. This is one of those smart lamps that deliver more than how it looks.
The Liuyang Smart Floor Lamp uses a vertical strip of LED that is aesthetically appealing too. But it does not come in a ready-to-use package, it requires a bit of assembly and installation. The plastic housing and connectors for the detachable tubes were not as sturdy as I thought. We’ll talk about it in a bit.
Once assembled and installed, and placed on a surface, it stands at the height of 69-inches. The base stand is where you can find the basic control buttons and its built-in microphones for the music sync feature.
The whole lamp consists of four light tubes including the base tube. Liuyang Smart Floor Lamp lets you detach unwanted tubes and resize the lamp height if you do not need all of them at a time. This makes it a space-saving, clean-looking, slim, and sleek standing lamp.
And while at it, it not only brightens up the corners and small spaces but adds rich and vibrant colors as well. This is why it also takes care of the mood lighting. At just 3.21 pounds, the Liuyang Smart Floor Lamp is lightweight and makes for a convenient lamp to move around as needed.
Installation and Setup
Once out of the box, the Liuyang Smart Floor Lamp will be ready to run after the installation. You can take out the lamp tubes one by one, depending on where you want to install the lamp, considering its height.
Insert the tubes one by one into the connection and make sure it is firm. Leaving a gap between two tubes may lead to disconnection and hence may not illuminate. And voila! Plug in power to use.
Basic installation does not need any extra setup using phone. But you have to install and set up Smart Life App on your phone if you want to control the lighting patterns, music sync, and get your desired accent color lights.
Tip: Even after connecting all the tubes with no gaps, there may be times when tubes display random colors. Complete unplug the tube and put it back in such cases. This will reset the connection and help illuminate the ones that weren’t.
Smart Home and App Controls
Most of the Liuyang Smart Floor Lamp’s features can be controlled from the Smart Life app. You can adjust the lamp’s brightness, colors, rate, and color temperature along with static, dynamic, music sync mode, and many more.
The app also offers you a timed function that lets you set timing or a countdown to switch itself off after a specific time. This means you can step out of the house or go to sleep without worrying about keeping the lights on.
Apart from the app controls, Liuyang Smart Floor Lamp also supports Amazon Alexa and Google Home. Once linked to either Alexa or Google Home, it becomes easy to control the smart lamp with your voice.
The Smart Life app has the links to set up both Alexa and Google for the smart lamp. Once done, use your voice commands or the Alexa/Google Home app to set brightness and color of the light. You still need the Smart Life app to control the light patterns and color combos.
