    Good Value, No Effects

    Let's start off with the following. Check this for things that may turn you away. - No effects. No wave effects, no ripples, no spectre effects, etc. You change the color and that's it - Brightness range isn't crazy - DOWNLOAD THE APP FIRST. TRY SENGLED HOME, and SEE IF YOU CAN LAUNCH IT AND HAVE IT NOT CRASH ON YOU. This item becomes useless without the app, so if you don't have it working, you'll be wasting your money. Now then, if you need the lightbulbs just for changing color, changing the brightness to a decent amount, and setting up a schedule, this is for you. I don't have my schedule for the lights working right at the moment, but I believe this is because of leaving my actual light switches off at night. The app is compatible with my phone, and works quickly and efficiently.

    Easy Feature Packed Smart Bulb Solution

    I have been wanting to add smart lighting to my apartment for some time and liked the features of this system. The Sengled initial setup was easy. First connect the Sengled hub to your router via LAN and use the app to connect the hub to your WiFi network. Subsequently you use the app to add bulbs and assign them locations/names as desired. Once a bulb is added a myriad of options specific to the bulb become available. On the "White" tab you can choose the type of white light (e.x. edison, warm, neutral, cool, and daylight) you want as well as the level of brightness you desire. By using the advanced features you can set-up multiple lighting schedules. On the "Color" tab you can choose a full spectrum of custom colors for custom or accent lighting. Overall, this has proven to be a great smart lighting system. The system is also expandable given you can purchase and add additional bulbs.

    Nice bulbs with lots of uses. Unintuitive app.

    These SengLED Element bulbs are fantastic as regular LED bulbs. The color change function is a nice add on and leads to fun decorating and setting a mood in an all-SengLED-lit room. The app and controls however leave a bit to be desired. The bulbs are very bright and seem to be competitive with the name-brand bulbs with similar features, and enrolling bulbs with the hub was a breeze. Very simple. The fallout happens when you want to customize rooms, change configurations. Or even switch between room-based, and individual bulb customizations... The app is very low quality and clicking through this seems more like back-end config than UI. Very administrative, not user-focused. Also I have yet to figure out how to integrate into Google Home, and I’m not an Alexa user.

    Solid Choice for Full Features

    The Sengled - Element Color Plus A19 Smart LED Light Bulbs offer a wide variety of possible settings including Brightness, hue, and Smart-Home controls. This package comes with the hub required for working with 3rd-Party devices such as Amazon Alexa and Google Hub. Set up was simple and connection with my Alexa device was seamless. I did have to do a little adjusting after I moved the lights to new locations and gave them new names. But these are my first Smart-Home bulbs and that was just part of the learning curve for me. The only reason I did not give this 5-stars is because it is a bit more costly than bulbs that work with Google Home without requiring an additional hub. Otherwise, these are great, full-featured smart bulbs that work very well.

    Frustrating

    When I first set it up it would turn the bulbs on and off via the android app but couldn't adjust the bulbs. Soon it wouldn't even do that. The app said no hub connected so I reset it and got it connected again but still would not work with the bulbs. It would just say bulbs not connected. The bulbs turn on with the wallswitch but not with the app. I spent a lot of time trying to get it to work but unsuccessful so far. It seems like a lot of trouble to turn some lights on when you could just flip a switch. Or use a motion detector. I thought the colors and hue adjustments would be cool but they don't seem to work at all for me. I will try some more to get it working but for now it's a bust. How many techs does it take to change a lightbulb?

    I got the starter kit free with another purchase, so I had no expectations. I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of set up and scene creation and purchased another bulb to go into my three light yard lamppost. I could then set the mood in the yard with different scenes of brightness and colors. Recent app updates have added programmable timing to the lights. I can turn on and off the lights according to schedules I create. This has made the product even more useful. It can now augment my security system.

    If you want great bulbs that are bright with great software that do multi color buy hue. If you want good color and white tuning and have an echo plus these get the job done cheaply. The software from sengled is horrible so if you can avoid their hub for daily use you should, but you need it for firmware updates to the bulbs. I like the bulbs and the price and would tell anyone to buy sengled if hue is too expensive for your taste. And unfortunately sengled bulbs are not currently compatible with the hue hub. And no HomeKit support for sengled hub.

    I already own Hue lighting through the house. It is nice to see an alternative that is less expensive than Hue as I think they are overpriced. These work fine but since I already have a Hue bridge it doesn't make sense to me to have 2 different bridges and lighting systems. If these were available when I first purchased then I probably would have gone with these instead of the Hue system. Since I'm already invested though I'll stick with the Hue lights.

    Great bulbs, app could use work

    These bulbs are great for anyone who wants to get started with smart lightning. They come with their own hub and are relatively easy to set up. However, the app could use some work. Having to add lights to "rooms" and then not being able to individually control them after that is very frustrating. The IFTT integration is a huge plus however. Ultimately these bulbs offer a variety of features at a reasonable price point and I recommend them for anyone who wants to try out smart lightning.

    These work great; however, there are a few points to call out: 1. You have to scan the QR code on the BULB itself; the QR codes on the box WILL NOT work. 2. You can't purchase 2 starter kits and expect all 6 bulbs to work with just one hub. Each (Set) has to work with the bulbs it came with (which is really not a great thing.) 3. If you want to change the colors of the bulbs you must use the app itself instead of going through Google or Alexa.

    I really like these light bulbs. I am new to the smart home concept but I can see why a lot people get into this. Now that it gets dark at 5:00 pm these make it much easier get into my place at night. The app was easy to use and I control the lights from my phone. There are bunch of different hues that you can adjust to lights to and I think they get plenty bright enough for reading or other task. They also make for great mood lighting.

    Cool Idea, but not Very Practical

    I admit it's very cool to sit and change the color, brightness, etc of the light in your room, but you have to continue to turn the light on and off from the app. It you shut it off with the light switch, you have to reconnect the bulb to the hub. You have to open your app when you walk into the room to turn your light on and that takes too long when you just want light.

    I got 3 of these kits free when I purchased some Arlo cameras from Best Buy with a promotion they were having (great deal!!!) So I setup each of my 3 kids rooms, I just used one hub to control all the rooms and setup 2 bulbs per room. Very easy for my kids to change the settings themselves, even my 5 year old does it. my Kids love their colorful rooms!

    The Sengled - Smart LED A19 Starter Kit with Multicolor bulbs is a product that needs an introduction; it's a good thing it was bundled with an ArloPro camera system! While a bit complicated to get set up, the possibilities for the Sengled system is intriguing. This is an emerging product market segment that will be interesting to watch.

    App is easy to use. Teathering the the hub and blubs is straight forward on a 2.4 connection. Can be used as a normal blub and with and color for mood lighting. Only gipe is the proprietary charger uses usb on the one end and a cicular conventional tip at the other end to supply power to the hub. The cord thats supplied is really short and you just cant remedy by a longer one in your drawer.

    I got these to start adding some Smart Home functions to my house. They work great with Alexa and the voice commands work well. It's also nice that the hub that comes with this starter kit can add up to 64 bulbs so any extra bulbs you purchase can easily be added. The bulbs themselves are a little pricey but if they last as long as they say they do then it's worth it in the long run.

    These bulbs have so many colors to choose from. Whats even cooler is that they react in an instant when I tell google to change its color. It takes less than a second for it to change colors. I mainly keep it on the daylight setting but once in a while i'll change the colors. The app is also very user friendly.

    I found the Sengled smart starter kit easy to set up just took a while for wifi to find base unit. Only drawback is lamps bulbs are connected to are in an always on status even when bulbs not activated. As a bonus when purchase of Arlo2 security pack was nice to add smart bulbs in home.

    So I bought these for my girlfriend but she ended up not using them as much. So she gave them to me and I use them all the time they work super well and I love the fact that there is a app for them. I can change the light any color also adjust brightness and schedules of when it turns on and off

    These lights are wonderful works great with Goggle home and Google mini. You can adjust the brightness and change the light color too. Many different colors you can use. We are still having fun with them. Turn the off and on with Google and colors as well. Love them.
