    These bulbs were very easy to use. Just plugged in the hub to my router, screwed in the bulbs and downloaded the app. Using the app I was able to change the colors and also set timers so these lights are on when I wake up. Being able to dim the lights when watching a movie was great. I plan on getting a few more bulbs soon.

    Programming was simple and effortless. Anyone can do this. Connection with Alexa echo dot (included) was simple. Brightness and colors are great. A good deal with dot included. Make sure you have a router, you will need one.

    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.

    This was a free gift with another purchase so I can't complain. It's easy to use and it's pretty cool to b able to change the color of the lights. Actually use the normal setting and turned them on and off while out of town.

    This was the first time I've used colored and dimmable LED lights. The Quick Setup Guide was easy to follow (even though print could have been larger) and the Hub connected to the router very easily. Even though it said that two bulbs come already paired, I had to manually add them in order for the app to work - but that was simple to do by scanning the barcode on the bulb. The color selection is almost unlimited and it's nice for creating various atmospheres. I put one in the living room, one in my office and one in the bedroom. Each bulb can be controlled with the app separately and each can have multiple schedules to come on and go off automatically - nice feature. It would be really nice if there was also a remote control for the bulbs since my husband stays up later than I do and he doesn't have a smart phone. Overall, these are great LED's and since we are converting all the lights in our home to LED - this will be the way to go so we can set schedules and create mood lighting easily.

    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.

    The Sengled Smart LED light bulbs and hub are pretty simple and great for adding a little color and mood or personality to home lighting. Setup: Easy as unboxing the hub, lights and swapping out the bulbs for these. You'll need to install the Sengled Element Home app for the initial setup where the App guides you through setting up the hub to connect it via wifi and then setup the bulbs. From there you can connect it to IFTTT, Samsung Smart Things, Alexa or Google so you can use your voice to control your lights. Use: With the Element Home app you can control each bulb independently or by group and tag them to specific rooms, fixtures, locations, etc to fit your needs. With the advanced settings you can control and set timers, tune the colors of the bulbs and turn them on/off. The app has some presets for colors but really is very straightforward and I wish there were more preset "scenes". In addition, there are no widgets in the iOS app which would make it a bunch easier to get to the controls. In addition it seems there are limits of how many groups of lights you can have. I'd definitely recommend planning on using Google, Alexa or IFTTT. until Sengled enhances their app. On the positive side, the hub/lights are very responsive and fast to respond to commands. The app does tell you how you use them and energy use/savings which is cool but I'd rather see more focus on the other lacking features of the app. Light/Color: The light and color is almost exactly what I expected with the brightness being just right. In terms of hardware, these bulbs and the hub seem pretty good and I have had no issues with them! Overall, I'd recommend these as they are simple quality lights. I'd think that given the feedback Sengled will update the app (hopefully) and I'd rate them 5 stars!

    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.

    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 received this kit at no cost for an honest review. I first heard of Sengled about a year ago, and I was wary about a knockoff wifi lighting company I hadn't heard of. Well, fast forward to now, where I've owned several of their products and I gotta say, they are high quality and very user friendly. These lights have very clear definition of the color you choose, and they are very versatile. Some lights I've seen, you choose a yellow color, but instead you get an Amber, you choose red, bit get pink. Not so with these. These appear to be true to the colors available and the intensity or brightness of the light. The lights come with a hub which can be connected wirelessly but you must first plug it in to the Ethernet cable (included) and then you can either leave it connected wired, or go wireless. You can connect up to 50 bulbs per hub, and lights must be within 180 feet. As far as the app, it is user-friendly and takes you step by step on how to install and use. There are different lighting scenes depending on your mood, or you may Aldo customize your own scene. Scheduled lighting is available and so is pairing with Google Home and Amazon's Alexa. I will definitely consider Sengled as a top contender (but probably much-better priced) when it comes to choosing wifi lighting needs. When installing, follow instructions just as written because that's how it'll work perfectly. I recommend these and they worked perfectly for me.

    Works as they should. Easy setup. Cheaper than most other bulbs. Hub not necessarily if you already own a Smartthings hub. Syncs to ST hub quickly and easily. Easy to use in automations. Loses a star for not being very bright.

    Not practical for everyday use

    This could be a great product if you never have to touch the lamp that the bulbs are in, but that is typically not the case for most of us and sometimes, flipping or turning a switch is easier than trying to program a lightbulb. I have had several issues with these bulbs: First of all, I somehow removed a bulb from the gateway and have been unsuccessful in reading it for use. The QR code on the bulb scans but the bulb will not add itself back to the list of available bulbs. I have the two remaining bulbs on a schedule, but the schedules don't seem to work properly. The bulbs either don't go on/off at the correct times and the brightness/color information is not being relayed to the bulb that is scheduled to activate/deactivate at specific times. If you turn off the lamp that the bulb is in, it takes to finagling to get the bulb to respond to the app again. All in all, it would be easier to have a dimmer switch on a lamp that you control manually instead of pulling up an app and troubleshooting every time you want to change the color or brightness of a bulb.
