Top Positive Review
I can’t speak for the longevity of this product, but with an hour of use and nerding out testing the features I’m exhaustedly happy. If you want the brightest mode possible don’t select white for a color, instead adjust the “warm white / cold white” slider. A slight con is you have to jump through a hoop to setup voice control on your phone; I use Android and I had to install Google Home on my phone and link the Govee app to it, this way I can use my phrases like “Hey google, turn bedroom lights on for 5 minutes”. I’ve also set schedules so the lights in my bedroom slowly turn on over the course of 15 minutes when I wake up for work (haven’t tested yet). The bulbs were easy to setup, downloaded the Govee app on my phone, screwed the Govee bulbs in, flicked the light switch on, searched for the lights in the app and they connect no problem. It also prompted me for WIFI information, so I think I can turn my lights on and off when I’m not home, but I haven’t tested this yet. You need to leave your physical light switches on, but from what I’ve read you should still save on energy using these LED bulbs. If you want to turn a light on manually, but the light is off and the physical switch is on, all you have to do is flick the switch off and on again.

You have to pay to use the lightbulb after you buy it. I posted a pic above so you could see. Disappointing.

Can you set a default color ? I want the bulb to be a certain color every time the bulb is turned off and then on.
Answer: Yes, this WiFi light blub can remain in its last setting. Choose the color you want on the app, and return to My Device list page, wait for 5 seconds then your settings will be saved automatically, you can then switch off the light through your wall switch directly.
