Can you use a smart bulb in a 3 way lamp?

Yes, it will work in the socket of a 3 way lamp. Turn the switch on the lamp up to it's full brightness and leave it there. Then control the bulb with the Hue hub app. Or with Alexa if you have an Echo.

Likewise, people ask, can you put a one way bulb in a 3 way lamp?

Three way sockets were designed to accept normal incandescent bulbs. There is nothing different between the one way LED bulb and the one way incandescent bulb. So it is not only safe, but by design.

do smart bulbs work in lamps? A smart bulb also works as a regular, standard bulb. But for it to work you need a smartphone, a tablet or a mobile device of some kind. In most cases, you will require a home automation hub that will allow you to operate the smart bulb wirelessly.

Keeping this in view, can you use a 60 watt bulb in a 3 way lamp?

As long as you don't put a bulb that uses more than 60 watts in that socket you will be fine. The good news is the energy-saving bulbs that replace a 60-watt incandescent will only use 10 to 15 watts, depending on the actual bulb you buy, and give off the same amount of light.

How does a 3 way light bulb work?

A three-way bulb has two filaments in it. The next time one burns out, carefully open it (for example, wrap it in a towel and hit it lightly with a hammer) and you will see the two separate filaments. For the lowest setting, one filament comes on (it might be a 50-watt filament).
