Do they make 3 way smart bulbs?

Smart bulbs can work in 3-way lamps, but you will need a tablet, a smartphone, or some mobile device to make this possible. You will also need an automation system with wireless technology that will enable you to operate the smart lighting wirelessly.

Why do 3 way bulbs burn out so fast?

Habitually loose connections, either at the socket or with the wire connections, can burn out the bulb quickly, as well as cause flickering. These loose connections increase the electrical resistance and the heat passing through the filament of the bulb, which can shorten its life.

Is a dimmable bulb the same as a 3 way bulb?

No. 3-way bulbs have three separate contacts to allow a three-way switch to power different incandescent filaments, to switch powers between three levels. Dimmable means that you can use a dimmer switch (replacement for a regular wall switch) to adjust the light intensity gradually across a wide range.
