We bought an older home. We bought it because it was quaint and charming but with an older home you run into a lot of weird electrical things. Like our bedroom. I don’t know who designed this but it is the strangest setup I’ve ever seen. Our bedroom light is connected to a switch that also turns on the TV, fans, pretty much anything else in the room. I don’t know who designed this. Because the fan takes the candelabra bulbs I was resigned to always having it on and having to reach up and pull the little cord when I wanted to turn the light on and off. Which is annoying. but we have Alexa in pretty much every room so out of desperation I started looking at candelabra sized Alexa bulbs. Wow there are not very many good reviews out there for these types of bulbs. And it’s kind of pricey considering what you pay in the store for just a normal bulb. But I decided to give it a try. Set up did take me two or three attempts because of the weird way my bedroom is wired but once I got it working it has been such a great help. I mean I know first world problems but still. I wound up extremely sick and put on bed rest. I got to tell you it was so nice to be able to lay in bed and just tell Alexa to turn my lights on and off for me instead of having to get up and turn the lights on with the cord. Again I know first world problems but still this has made the weird electrical setup a lot less problematic. I have the app on my phone which unfortunately my daughter has discovered, so she frequently likes to change the color for me. I don’t really use the colors that much when it just comes to my usage but it is a cool trick. Right now I have them set exactly as I want them and all I have to do is tell my device to turn them on and turn them off.

The bulbs themselves are unremarkable. They work, they turn colors and you can set up a schedule.
What I object to is the miserable app that is used to control them. On the first go round, the “easy” setup failed so I tried the AP mode. AP mode failed entirely. So back to “easy”. After yet another failure, it turns out that these light bulbs connect to an Amazon Web Services host (cloud server) on a wacky port (TCP port 8886) which is very much non-standard. I had to create special exceptions in my router/firewall to permit this traffic as most services use standard HTTPS on port 443 for communication. Of course, one might ask why in the world does a LIGHT BULB need access to the internet?! I don’t know if these are supposed to work remotely (have not tried, not at all interested) but I have no idea why these would need to connect to a remote server. As soon as I got them set up, I removed the access as I have no intention of sharing anything with an unknown 3rd party. The last part that is entirely unnecessary is that the app demands location permissions or it will not work at all. Again, why does this thing need to know where I am?! I begrudgingly provided location access and once it worked, I immediately disabled it.
I just cannot for the life of me understand why a LIGHT BULB requires so much connectivity, access and data. I should have just returned these stupid things, but I’m 99% certain that most all of the similar competing products are using the same thing and have the same requirements. I should have just bought a bulb with a simple remote control.
Customer Questions & Answers
i cannot get alexa to recognize these , I can get them set up in the smart life app but alexa will not recognize these any help?t
Answer: After set them up in Smart Life app, enable skill “Smart Life” in Alexa app, input your smart life account and password to allow Alexa to access to these bulbs.

Can I set these to simulate black light?
Answer: I wouldn??t call it a black light effect. The closest I??ve seen to that is either a blue setting or purple setting with these bulbs.
Do these work with a touch lamp?
Answer: Not sure about working with a touch lamp. They work perfect with my goggle assistant!
