    Most of these wifi bulbs are the same. Got this almost free with another purchase. Without color changing, not worth the price.

    Have performed flawlessly. Previous IOT bulbs and devices had to be set up again from time to time. No such issue with these bulbs. The Dimming range is not as wide as I would like and the color a bit too yellow, but great for the price.

    The Sengled Smart LED Starter Kit includes three soft-white bulbs and a hub, using ZigBee to control the bulbs. These are not WiFi bulbs, the hub is required to control them, much like the Philips Hue system. The bulbs are pre-paired to the hub to make the initial installation simpler. In my case, the installation was not simple. My home network is a mesh network (Google WiFi) which seriously confused the (Android) app. Turns out that Sengled is switching to a newer Android app, so make ABSOLUTELY SURE you get "Sengled Home", not the Sengled "Element Home" referenced in the instructions! This is their newer app that is under active development. Fortunately, Sengled Tech Support was very responsive and after a couple of back and forths, they pointed me in the right direction. Once the initial problem with the app was resolved, it was very simple to set up the system. Plug the hub into an Ethernet port, fire up the app, then turn on the lights. . Download the app to your phone, follow the simple instructions, and you're up and running. Although the hub does require an Ethernet (wired) connection for the initial setup, it can be disconnected and used over your WiFi after that. This is important because it allows you to extend the control range. One hub can theoretically control up to 50 devices; however, I found that the ZigBee wireless range limited control to one or two rooms. A distance of 50-75 ft became a challenge for consistent control. Fortunately, you can use multiple hubs with the app. The bulbs themselves provided bright, consistent lighting. They are fixed color, warm white, there is no way to change the color. The app tracks energy usage, which may prove useful to some. Voice commands with both Alexa and Google Home worked well. Pros: * The price of the kit is little more than the cost of the bulbs alone and additional bulbs are not much more than standard LED lightbulbs. @@@@@ Simple installation with the new app. @@@@@ Sengled seems to be developing a whole line of home automation products that are controlled by the app. @@@@@ The app is under active development, with new features being added. The latest update added scenes, daily scheduling, editable schedules, and color controls, although the included bulbs are fixed warm white color. @@@@@ Tech support is very responsive and helpful. Cons: * Hub seems to have a somewhat limited wireless (ZigBee) range. This limits the area it can control. @@@@@ Setup requires an Ethernet port. It would be nice if setup could be done wirelessly.
