Top Positive Review
This is a relatively new product from an established vendor of LED bulbs. The quality of light (90+ CRI) is better than most smart bulbs. It’s nice that they’re honest about lumens and incandescent watt equivalence. It is reasonably priced.
I can’t speak to the usability of the Cree app (it’s probably not great). I was able to connect to the bulb using the Tuya “Smart Life” app, which I use for other smart home devices. This setup works without issues.
Regarding longevity, Cree’s standard 5-year warranty is the best in the business (on paper). Assuming they honor it, I am not worried.

The app sees the bulb model and Bluetooth seems to connect as the bulb stops pulsing, but ultimately ends in ??Device installation timeout??. I have Alexa and over a dozen other outlets and wall switches that just work. Back to Amazon returned as defective cree junk..
