    Pros: Great mood lighting Make and save your own themes Dimmable (but don't use with a dimmer switch) Rich colors Some cool pre-canned effects, i.e. Flicker, Color Cycle, Spooky, etc. (these are customizable) consume very little power I like the simple app No hub needed Convenient to turn on and off all lights in the house at once. Geo fence. Lights will come on for you, or the kids, just by pulling into the driveway. Safety feature. Keep your phone by your bed. If you hear a bump in the night you can very quickly turn on any light, room full of lights or all lights. At 25% power, in color mode, they are burning less that a watt each. I like that you can turn the I.R. mode off. With I.R. on, below around 9 watts your power consumption will jump from 0.5 watts to 7.6 watts. Even when you believe the light are off - they aren't really. They are giving off I.R. light and burning 7.6 watts each. Grouping lights by room and by house. Great for entertaining. You can put up some soothing, cozy colors. They really set the atmosphere - when you have enough of them. Decorate your room, or house, with light. Best with white or off-white walls. Cons: They are heavy. I can see the horizontal arms, under the lamp shades, holding the sockets sagging under the weight. Most light sockets were designed for an incident bulb that weighs next to nothing. These Lifx bulbs replaced normal 40 watt equivalent or 4 watts LED bulbs that also weighed next to nothing. They can often loose connection, although I haven't noticed as much of that lately. I probably returned at least a dozen that would never connect or stay connected even after bulb resets. (Turn on and off 5 times) They get pretty hot for an LED bulb. The 4 watt bulbs barely got warm and that's good for your AC. For best signal the router manual says: "Place the router away from large glass surfaces." If your light bulb is enclosed in a ceiling fixture, chances are it's behind glass. But that's not why mine are only in table and floor lamps. Also not due to the builder-grade ceiling lights with weak, flimsy assembly between the socket and the light fixture. Although if I tried installing one in a ceiling fixture - that might become a reason. When you turn on a light switch, your probably doing it because you need light. My Lifx light would come on set to Red or Blue, etc. at 25% power. This does not work if you turned on the light to look for something. So you have to go find your phone and open the app, set it to White, turn up the brightness. That's not convenient. So ceiling lights are for actual light and table and floor lamps are for mood lighting. With the weird shape, they won't work with every fixture. They barely fit under some of the Tiffany shades. Some of the shades had to be raised a small amount to accommodate the squared off corners. If you have a lot. They take up a lot of spots on your router. The BR30 version doesn't not completely turn off unless you cut the power. Once your eyes adjust to the dark room, you'll see a very faint glow - even through a translucent lamp shade. It's very dim and not a big deal but it is definitely not fully off. The A19s are all in Tiffany lamps with cut glass shades - so they are behind glass, mostly. Something the router manual says to avoid. The BR30s are in floor lamps with either Alabaster style or cut glass shades. Again, behind glass. The metal arms on the table lamp sockets are metal tubular steel and built solid - yet because these arms are horizontal I can see the arms sagging under the weight. Some of the bulbs are sort of peeking out from under these shades - not so with the LED bulbs that were in these lamps. The socket on one arm actually broke under the weight. I have yet to try and fix that.

    Both better and worse than Philips Hue

    For the past half year I've used Philips Hue bulbs at both home and office, and while I like them well enough, they have their shortcomings (poor colour quality between yellow and blue, too dim for some photography situations). I purchased a Lifx bulb to compare, hoping that it might integrate with my existing home automation setup. Better: - Significantly more saturated colours with superior, more predictable colour quality. Setting a Lifx bulb to yellow-orange, for example, doesn't leave you with an anaemic yellow that's strangely "not quite right" (like Philips Hue)...it's actually yellow-orange. - Light temperatures are ease to set in the app, and the white colour quality looks good. - Brighter than Philips Hue. - Doesn't require a hub. This is good if you want to try only one bulb out as your first foray into home automation; there's no additional investment required so long as you have an available wifi network. Worse: - Big, bulky, and very, very heavy bulbs won't fit all fixtures and require plenty of ventilation. Philips Hue is easier and more reliable to use in standard household fittings. - Light spread appears to be more heavily weight towards the top of the bulb. Again, Philips Hue behaves more like a standard bulb, with more even distribution of light. - Ugly bulb shape. This probably doesn't matter to most people, but if you have any fixtures that use translucent or transparent materials, Lifx bulbs will stand out, and in my opinion, not in a good way. - After years of claiming HomeKit support was just around the corner, Lifx still hasn't delivered on their promises. This might not be a deal breaker for anyone that's ok with constantly having to use their phone to control lights, or use an assistant like Google Home or Amazon Alexa. I don't. I want physical remotes and motion detectors, both of which are integrated natively with the Philips Hue system. Without HomeKit support, I cannot use my AppleTV to bridge between the two systems. I'm certainly not going to purchase yet-another-home-automation-network like Samsung SmartThings in order to control Lifx bulbs. - Doesn't use a hub and relies on your home wifi network. Yes, this is both better and worse. I didn't have issues, but I only tested one bulb for a short period of time. Consumer level wifi networks are notoriously flimsy, and I wouldn't want my lighting to depend on my wifi network. Personal preference, but founded in what I believe are reasonable concerns about reliability.

    These are Good WiFi Connected Bulbs!

    I purchased these bulbs along side the Philips Hue 3rd Gen bulbs. These are brighter than the Hue bulbs and the colors might be a little richer. I actually ended up going with the Hue bulbs because they seem to be less laggy and more in sync with each other when powering on, off and changing colors. One of the biggest benefits that I found with these bulbs is the fact that they keep their current setting if the power goes out and turns back on. Both the the Lifx and Hue automatically turn themselves back on when power is restored, but the Lifx will keep color and brightness setting. The Hue reset back to default settings, which are white light and 100% brightness once powered back on. I was using these bulbs with the SmartThings hub so that I could control them with Google Home. They responding pretty quickly and could change colors, but had some issues with them and had to sometimes fix color or brightness with the Lifx app. That's probably just do to the Hue lights being able to be controlled natively by the Google Home. Don't let my configuration discourage you from purchasing these bulbs as they are pretty nice. So, conclusion is. Pros: Retain settings Brighter and Richer Colors The UI (for Android at least) is better than Hue's (IMO) Suppose to last longer than Hue bulbs (as per tech specs) WiFi, so no hub is needed I've read that IFTTT and Alexa have good support for these bulbs (Source: just did some Googling) and rumor is that Google Home will be getting support (just saying..) soon. Soon could mean 1000 years, but hey.. Cons: A little laggy and unbalanced when making changes (Your experience may differ) A bit pricey, but not to bad considering that you don't need a hub to get started and they suppose to last longer (so not sure if it's really a con) No native Google Home support yet Not much else about this device. If the 3rd Gen Hue wasn't in stock at the time, then I probably would have just kept these and been happy with them. Hopefully you find this more helpful than confusing. I apologize if this leaves you the latter.

    Amazing stand alone smart bulb

    I purchased this smart bulb because of the other great reviews that it received and because of its compatibility with HomeKit, but I was a little skeptical at first because it was from a brand that I did not recognize (up until this point I was only familiar with the Philips Hue smart bulbs). After purchasing this smart bulb it was very quick and easy. I was able to easily set it up in the settings app under the Wi-FI section on my phone and it was all done! COLORS The colors on this smart bulb are amazing! This bulb is surprisingly bright and the colors are accurate and beautiful. I can control the colors through the Home app on my iPhone and also through the Life app the you can download from the App Store. LIFX APP The app for this bulb is also very well developed. It has a lot of preset colors that are very cool (they have presets for sports, mellow, exciting, etc.) They also have some cool effects that you can turn on that would be nice for having people over. They have a setting to change the color of the light slowly or also one that plays along with the music. Although, I noticed for the music visualization preset it had a small delay and was not synced very well with the music that was playing. PRICE This is the only part that I was not so satisfied with. The bulb's retail price is $60 which is a little pricey and the cost isn't really different from other companys' offerings for similarly colored smart bulbs (i.e. Philips Hue). I wish this smart bulb was like $15 cheaper and I would've given it 5 stars. OVERALL In general this smart bulb is amazing and I love it. I am really inclined to try out the LIFX Mini bulb which is $15 cheaper because I like this bulb so much. The app is very well made and the setup for this smart bulb is very straightforward. I would definitely recommend this smart bulb to anyone who likes to have friends/family over or just wants to add a little color to your home.

    A $60 regular light bulb

    Posted
    canoftuna

    I was so psyched to buy into the smart light products last year, and I still am. Just not with this product. This little gimmick is actually really awesome... when it works. The connectivity issues are so bad that I've used the bulb for more than half the time as a regular light bulb. The light will disconnect every other day and, more recently, not even connect at all. I'm trying their support for a third time, read all the documentation, configured my router settings to their exact specifications, and have hard reset this bulb more times than I can count. I've seriously put a lot of time into getting this thing to work. Don't believe me? Check out the app reviews before purchasing. There are A LOT of reviews like mine. But maybe I'm one of the few that has a wireless network that doesn't support it? The bulb functioned perfectly the first 4-5 weeks (return period) that I owned it. I liked it so much that I bought another. Initially I bought into LiFX because it had slightly better hardware than the hue, and it didn't require the costly initial investment (bridge) that the hue required. Dropping $100 to test one bulb to see if I liked the wifi enabled features was a bit to much. However all the money I saved ($60) is nothing compared to amount of time I've wasted trying to get this thing to work. I'd give this thing zero stars if I could.

    These bulbs are great, they run cool, have bright light, brilliant colors and a neat app interface for relatively easy use. I enjoy being able to turn on and off multiple bulbs or a room all at once for lights that are not all on one switch, while also being able to do so by each individual bulb. Note there is some minor confusion at first during setup as far as which app to even use, between the Lifx app and Apple’s HomeKit, had to install on both and primarily use Lifx app but seems HomeKit is the master app yet has less customization than the lifx app directly. I eventually may replace all older bulbs with these efficient programmable ones. Enjoy the convenience of remote control most of the time but at times the lights can have a slight delay or appear to be disconnected from wifi or turned off at the switch which causes you to reset or troubleshoot. Doesnt present big issues but the extra time wasted having to reset or troubleshoot them is what reduces rating to 4/5 from 5.

    Excellent Smart Light, if for a room or two

    Why have a light bulb that cost $60? Well, what if you want the lights to be on when you come home? Maybe put on some mood lighting? Or dim the lights so you don't destroy your night vision? Maybe you just want to party? Perhaps you're like me and just wanted some lights to pair with your Google Home, so you can illuminated and extinguish by command? The lights are pretty bright, and one would light a small bedroom pretty well. The colors are very vibrant and the white options are very plentiful, if not fine tuneable; color temp goes from 2500 to 9000K, in 500 degree steps. They integrated with Google Assistant and IFTTT very well, I have my lights set up to flash whenever I get a notification on my Android phone. My only caveat is that if I were outfitting a whole house with these, is probably go with Hue, only because they won't cause overhead and client problems on my WiFi network. That brand connects via Zigbee in a meshed network to a centralized hub that's connected to your router, whereas these connect to your router directly. As such, I think they are great for one or two rooms, but not the whole house, unless you want to take the time and have them on a totally separate network...

    Great smart light

    I was hesitant to try out a smart lightbulb at first but after purchasing this one I am blown away. This lightbulb is relatively easy to set up and a breeze to use. It offers a simple user interface that is straightforward while also being able to connect with a number of exterior services to offer nearly limitless possibilities. I was able to set up an alert that would cause the light to flash blue if the price dropped on it so I could go back to Best Buy to price match it. The light will satisfy those from techie to beginner and everyone in between. Also the light does not need a hub which keeps things simple. I did have a hiccup or two on the initial setup but that was quickly remedied when I actually read the directions on the companies website. I will say that the end result is well worth the little bit of grief at the beginning. Occasionally the lights do seem to lose the connection to the internet and will take a little longer to respond. This has been exceedingly rare but has happened several times. Again this is well worth the end result and I would recommend this light to anyone just trying out smart lights.
