Very surprised!!

New lamps and stumbled on bulbs. Very simple to use. Best is no need to touch switch and can control anywhere, program on/off,
colors and works with Alexa and Siri.

Love the lights, plugs, spots, LED strips

I started buying as a novelty for one area in my house and now my wife is telling me to stop buying them!! I have almost the
whole house setup! Easy setup, easy to move and manage on the app!! Great product!!! Why would I want to deal with a Hub?!

The app itself is great

I noticed that most of bad reviews and comments are based on negative experience with wifi connection and setup. I think it
depends mainly on your router. My router supports 2.4 (suitable for lights) and 5ghz (for high speed internet on my computers) and
I had no problems to set the lights up. But i

App is great, bulbs need work

I was worried seeing all the negative reviews as I screwed in the lights and downloaded the app, and sure enough one of my bulbs
dropped connection constantly. I played around with the app before just switching that bulb for a new one. After that the app
worked surprising well, and I haven’t had any

It works...

Happy new year everyone! 1/1/2021.

It does what it’s supposed to do... The set up process was easy. It connects with the 2.4GHz and not 5GHz (make sure you switch
back to regular wifi and not 5G before pairing). However, after it paired with your wifi, it works on either frequencies or even

Can’t delete light bulb but works beautifully

I’ve been using this app and bulbs for over a month. Both work beautifully with min Google Mini and stand alone with the Wiz
app. My 4 star rating is because I can’t delete any light bulbs from my Home via app. I’ve returned one but it’s still
listed in the app.

Pretty amazed

Never had smart bulbs, for $10 at Home Depot and 5 min setup with this app at home, I’m telling Google assistant to change my
dining room lights to different colors. Magic! The circadian rhythm and warm/cool scale features are great.

No hub necessary (HUGE plus over the hue from what I understand)

Unfortunately, most of the bad reviews are regarding how expensive their bulbs were or how they bought bad bulbs that don’t work

Custom scenes

Very nice app overall, however, I wish there was the option to create your own dynamic scene and control pulsing of lights to make
your own disco. That would set this even further from the competition. Really great app overall.

Works great

We have 7 lights outdoor and 8 lights indoor that all paired easily. For reference we have a mesh google WiFi router. There is one
light in the outside corner of our house that will occasionally lose connectivity, but a simple off / on will usually fix it. I

No issues. Works fine

I’m don’t know if I’m a rare case or what, but I’ve had zero issues setting up the bulbs with the app. No lost connections
or anything. I’m sorry so many others have had problems. They’ve worked great for me.

Eero Helps Pair These....

Saw the negative reviews but have to say my experience was great. Everything paired 1st attempt. The modes like, candle and fall
are great. I have a new Eero WiFi extender for smart homes and it automatically found the lights. Buying more!

Kinda pricey for light bulbs but it is what it is. Set up at first was confusing as the bulb only takes 2.4GHz. I had my smart
internet on that automatically changes between 2.4GHz and 5GHz. So I had to turn it off. After I turned it off, set up was great.

I have a 4 light multi-color philips 100w equivalent setup, and the app holds a lot of customization. The scene function is the

it as a group with those settings is the

Decent Overall. Needs more features

Overall it works decently well. It’s does need a few things tho:
1)Select multiple groups at once. Currently in a room you can select all lights, one light, or one group. You should be able to
multi select lights.
2)create custom moving scenes. Currently you can use a preset with changing lights o

Not bad, but could be better.

The overall purpose is fulfilled. I am able to control my lights with this app however, it can be really slow and glitchy at
times. I occasionally struggle to get the app to work appropriately and have to exit and reopen multiple times before it works.

Could use more features

Easy to use and install, but limited options.

I’d love to be able to make my own dynamic light designs and save them.

The wake up function is what I wanted and it’s harsh on its final setting. Could definitely use a better sunrise.

On the app it shows multiple light bulbs in the room. But does

Mostly okay

These bulbs stay on my Xfinity WiFi better than the geeni ones do. The comments from September 2020 probably offer a number of
clues as to why this is still not an ideal situation. But in the meantime, the widget used to work to allow me to see my bulbs,

Bulbs work great, the color variations are nice and while it was a little pricy they work surprisingly well. However, the app
