    The Google home mini with the light bulb is a great way to get started with home automation. I love the way it works too.

    I decided to get this to go along with my existing Google home and preexisting smart bulbs. Google assistant has really come a long way from the time it came out and I am a big fan of the ever changing developments. Setup was easy just plug in the unit and screw in the light bulb and turn it on and Google will walk you through the remaining steps. The light bulb is great quality and extremely bright it made me realize I need to upgrade all of the lighting in my living room. Another great product and addition to my existing smart home setup.

    I love this combination because you get the google mini with the GE light bulb. The set up is very easy for the Google mini download the Google home app and for GE light bulb put it in the lamp connect it. The GE light bulb is voice control by the Google mini and you can change the light brightness from 1% up to 100%.

    Works as Advertised

    This worked as I would have expected - nothing remarkable other than the GE light that came with the Google product worked as it should; this is surprising since the very same bulbs I acquired last week have demonstrated a profound inability to work as they should (other than to light up). These bulbs are the same as the one that came with the google product and would not work with the google product (and the factory reset procedure is one of the worst ever designed so I gave up and just use them as bulbs). The google product recognized the ONE GE bulb and there was an easy process to install.

    A great starter kit that's easy to implement

    The Google Smart Light Starter kit consists of a Google Home Mini and a C-Life A19 Smart Bulb. The Google Home Mini is a pancake-shaped speaker that communicates using Google Assistant. Setting the Mini up on our network was incredibly easy largely because we are already set up with other Google Home products. By that I mean that we already have the Google Home App installed on our phones, and already have a Google Home speaker installed elsewhere in our house. Part of the setup process is to choose a room where you will install the Mini. I chose a room down the hall from where we already have a Google Speaker installed. The installation process took about 6-7 minutes to complete because it also downloaded a software update. At the end of the installation process, I was asked to identify the room where the Mini was located so as to easily identify it in the Home App when needed. Once the Mini was installed, I took the C-Life Smart Bulb and screwed it into a light fixture in a room adjacent to where the Mini was sitting. Keep in mind that the installation guide very specifically states to use a light fixture in the'same' room as the Mini. The Google Home App had some difficulty completing the Smart Bulb installation because it wasn't in the same room, so I moved the bulb back to a light fixture where the Mini was located. In but a few moments, the Google Home App located the bulb. I then named the bulb so the App could distinguish it from other smart bulbs in our house, and the setup process ended. Once everything was communicating properly, I removed the bulb and screwed it back into a light fixture in the next room. And yes, it works perfectly even though the Mini and the bulb are in adjacent rooms. @@@@@@@@ Keep in mind that the C-Life Smart Bulb uses Bluetooth technology to communicate with the Mini, and Bluetooth has distance limitations). Between the installation of the Mini and setting up the C-Life bulb, I doubt it took longer than 15 minutes to get everything working properly. I can now control the new smart bulb using the Google Home App, or by using the Google Assistant command "Okay Google". Plus, I can turn this bulb and others on or off, plus dim or brighten them, even if I'm away from the house.

    I like that I can control the level of the light from my google home app but the downside is that there honestly isn't that much range between the 'percentages' of the light.

    Google Home and GE Life Bulbs - a perfect match

    We purchased a Google home mini and then teamed it with the GE Life bulbs. It worked so well together, without any hub, that we got the bulb/mini combo for each of our adult children for the holidays. They all loved them! I highly recommend these.

    I love my google home and including the smart light bulb was a good deal, I placed the bulb in my lamp on my nightstand, I love not having to reach out constantly to my lamp, just let your google assistant help you!
