I like these bulbs. I got the first one on an Amazon special and have bought a couple more. When they are working, they work well, but they have odd glitches. Sometimes I can ask Alexa to turn them on or off and she’ll say they are not responding but they turn on or off like I ask. Sometimes the app shows they are not connected and I don’t know why. There is a way to reset them if they become disconnected or not paired anymore but I had some issues with one not connecting even after several attempts so I removed it both from the light and the app and started over. Overall, they are cool to have as I want them in my ceiling fans so I can leave the fan on during the warmer weather but not have to keep pulling the cord to turn the light not. I have my living room one set to come on at dusk, but I haven’t figured out how to set it to go off in the morning. It is cool that you can be away from home and turn them on and off via the app. One thing I also found is that when the internet modem went off due to an outage, they came on until it was back online and I had to reset them to turn off. It happened in the middle of the night and the one in my room woke me up. Just be aware of some of these little glitches that happen with this kind of technology.

The old shell game at work . After trying one bulb on a special introductory 99 cents, and successfully pairing it with my home we were sold, we were ready to go “all in” and buy more…these two were the first a coffee maker was next…but then…after two days of mostly wonderful use…they stopped working, Alexa by voice or via the app could not locate the “devices’ as the lights are called. She could no longer turn them on or off. Thy went from being real cool voice command lights into…just light bulbs…expensive light bulbs.
Today I spent 6 hours…researching fixes and trying them all…powering down and back up the Echos…deleting the once paired (but can no longer be found by Alexa) lights via the app and reinstalling them as new. Alexa Echo connects once, but then…cannot locate them again.
I even went to the amazon help desk…who asked me to try from a different location…Alexa on my computer! The computer would not discover the lights AT ALL. Customer Service rep asked me to TRY A DIFFERENT COMPUTER! So…to repeat…my Echo once paired these, and occasionally will find them again (when I delete the lights and do a “discover devices” but then cannot locate them to do anything, my app shows that same information, and my computer (working in tandem with the Echo…cannot discover them…and CUSTOMER SERVICE WANTS ME TO TRY ANOTHER COMPUTER!?!?
No, friends….I am grateful I decided to wait a day before I ordered my Alexa pairing Coffee Maker! HORRIBLE PRODUCT…their customer service does not even know that to do (check the internet where I spent the first five hours looking for fixes).
Friends…DO NOT BUY.

Customer Questions & Answers
Can these bulbs dim? Can they be set to timers?
Answer: Yes they are dimmable. I have not setup a timer but should be capable.
How long should this bulb live/work? thanks
Answer: Mine lasted several years. I had to replace mine because it lost conductivity with Alexa. The light for illumination still worked. So in answer to your question, it lasted for about 4 years.
Just 1 light work with alexa the other idk why dont, i have my alexa up to date and everything
Answer: I have two bulbs in the bedroom. First time one would not work, after going over some of blogs on youtube turning the light on and off five times qiickly it worked. Hope it works for you.
How exactly does this work?
Answer: I set it up w my Alexa app. Then ask Alexa to find new devices, turn the light on & it will flash. Once Alexa discovers the light bulb you can name it & then tell her to ??turn on/off hall light??. You just leave the switch on & Alexa turns on & off. Quite simple to set up
