I question the 100 watt equivalent. And no I didn??t use a light meter to test it. It??s just they do not look to be 100 watts each. I put 3 in the kitchen light fixture and 3 above the kitchen table. That would be 600 watts in two small areas that are open to each other. It should burn my eyes out. But it doesn??t. Having said that, these bulbs work really well and integrate into Alexa with no problems at all. I am now going to these exclusively everywhere I can in the house. You can dim them and change color with your voice. There??s a lot of stuff you can do with them and I love ??em. Just wish they were a little brighter.
Top Critical Review
I am encouraged by the improvement over this company’s lights available last year because these setup directly through Alexa (Echos). Last year’s bulb setup was much more cumbersome. However, an internet outage can still require removing and repeating setup, and even resetting actual bulbs.
It’s better but still klunky. Someday these will just “work” without exposing us to the bleeding edge of the technology. I’m only going forward with them because I’m a hopeless wonk.
Setup requires echo to be within 30 feet of one of these, and then you can move echo farther away again. IDK but walls might reduce the distance. That was my only glitch, but I had to repeat it when our internet went down. Now that everything is back in its place and my driveway light routines are working I’m breathing easier. Once I moved an echo within range setup and re-setup were automatic.
Customer Questions & Answers
Does this work with google home? I know it says Alexa only but when searched on sengled site it says it works with Google home.
Answer: I only have Amazon devices.
Do these work with a standard dimmer switch?
Answer: I don??t really know. I bought them to work with Alexa. And with Alexa, you can tell her how bright you want the illumination to be. My light switch is on all the time for this reason and they are not dimmer switches. Sorry I can??t be more helpful.
Do these bulbs work with Smartthings?
Answer: Mine DO NOT show up on SmartThings at all. I believe they are intended solely for Alexa.
