When the Avea Flare ($99.95) smart light arrived from Elgato, a note inside said "Happy Testing" and that's exactly what testing was like. In fact, my daughter practically grabbed the oversized-egg-shaped smart light fixture from my hands, in a scene that could be straight out of Willy Wonka, except this was not a golden egg. The Avea Flare is an egg-shaped wirelessly charged smart light source that can be tuned to millions of colors using the free companion Avea app. You can select scenic color schemes to match your mood or set it to wake up to a particular scene. There's even an Apple Watch extension so you can control it from your wrist.
