This is my review for the LIFX White, A19 Wi-Fi Smart LED Light Bulb. I ordered this on August 12th 2020, but with the current state of shipping and delivery it didn??t arrive until August 25th. My wife and I have been in the process of making our house more ??convenient?? with smart devices linked to our multiple Amazon Echos. We started almost two years ago with Etekcity plugs. While an interesting entry point to creating a smart home, we found Etekcity would routinely fall off the network and force us to move furniture to gain access to the plugs to reset them.
During a later trip to Costco, I picked up a multi pack of Feit electric LED smart bulbs. I genuinely hoped these would provide us with the lighting and convenience we were looking to create. I was wrong. We still have two Feit bulbs in our living room, but the other two bulbs that came with the pack are still sitting on the shelf. The Feit bulbs we bought took days (literally) to set up. We have a higher-end-of-the-spectrum Netgear Nighthawk Smart Wi-Fi Router Model R7000 and superfast connectivity for our home capable of streaming 4K video with speeds that routinely clock over 100 Mbps. It was very difficult to establish connectivity with the Feit bulbs, which is why I never bought more even at a great Costco price. My wife and I finally found what we were looking for with LIFX. After my experience with Feit, I have very little patience in trying to set up another smart device. For the customer who claims they had a hard time connecting to a 5G router, the issue is NOT the LIFX bulbs. Most people probably aren??t aware that just because you have a high end router and dozens of smart/connected devices this doesn??t guarantee success. You also have to pay for service that allows for this much usage without bottlenecking your devices. The LIFX A19 is the fourth LIFX bulb we installed in the master bedroom. It took less than 5 minutes to automatically be recognized on the network (WITHOUT having to hold it close to the router, as some smart bulbs recommend) and pop-up on our Amazon Alexa skills. It is a perfect bulb for our bedroom floor lamp/reading lamp. It dims from 0-100%, and covers the spectrum of white light (warm, day, etc.) effortlessly. We also have a LIFX A19 (1100 lumens!) full spectrum color LED bulb that we use in the Master Bedroom and we could not be happier. When my wife and I first started using smart devices to make our home ??more convenient?? I found myself routinely lamenting that Etekcity and Feit made my life far more ??inconvenient?? than just using a light switch. However, since installing LIFX around the house (to include their full spectrum light strips behind our flat screen TV for ambient theater lighting), I see the future of making your home ??smart?? has less do with your architect, and more to do with how quickly Amazon can ship.

Save for money I guess you get what you paid for. I followed the instructions and even reached out to customer service from LIFX and Amazon 2.5 hours out my day absolutely nothing resolved. Don??t waste your money
