I opened the box; screwed the bulb into a socketand based on past experience turned the switch on then off rapidly three times WHICH in fact caused the bulb to momentarily blink on and off then on.
I needed this bulb for the inside of a pantry where I have an Echo Show 5 within arms reach.
I did as it said in the instructions on the box thebulb came in then and said, “Alexa, discover my devices.”
Less than or around a minute later the Echo Show let me know it found the Sengled bulb at which time I was able to easily change the name to Pantry Light.
Very, very simple. Maybe TOO easy based on all the one star reviews. This installed so easily I couldn’t believe it. There was no need to download a separate app even. Nothing.
As I said at the beginning of this review, I added the extra step of turning the switch off and on quickly three times in an effort to make that a way for Alexa to discover the device (Sengled bulb.)
I’m not sure that step was necessary but it was done before I could believe I could actually put away the step ladder andmove onto something else. Incredible!
Not sure how it would go using just an Echo Dot; you probably have to go into the Alexa app to change the name. Using an Echo Show 5 for sure, they could have made it esdier by including a robot for you to tell to screw in the light bulb for you, idk.
Wow. I am very, very satisfied customer. DONE already, (for a change.) Thank you.
Definitely more than 5 stars for eade of installation, wow. Low energy consumption and long life bulb too if the information on the box is accurate. I accept their claims to be true.
Top Critical Review
These are the best light bulbs I have bought! Just screw them in, ask Alexa to find the bulb and you??re done other, than naming the location.
UPDATE: These lasted about a week then wouldn??t work with Alexa and couldn??t reconnect. I returned them and got a second set that did the same thing within a couple days. Returning this set too for a refund!
Customer Questions & Answers
Why they have the bluetooth sign on them if they don’t need a hub?
Currently, we provide 3 types of smart bulbs: Wi-fi version, Bluetooth Mesh version, and ZigBee version.
Only the ZigBee version smart bulbs require a hub.
What the difference between the daylight and the softwhite bulb
Answer: Daylight is a bluer light that mimics daylight, which one might prefer in a bathroom or office, where soft white is yellower, a warmer temperature of light, which I prefer for my living room.
Just received mine and alexa won??t find them! i tried placing the s?exa s??per near by and sill nothing?? any help?
Answer: I had issues with these from the start. After a couple of days they have to be reset. And I??ve reset mine so many times that I took them out. Instead, I use the Kasa wall switches and they work great with Alexa!
It shows that it requires an amazon echo. does this also include the echo dot, or is it only compatible with the bigger echo?
Answer: Yes, these lights work with echo dots. I only have two echo dots (I do not have the big ones) in my house and these lights are being controlled by both of them just fine. Not only that, I can also control these lights from the Alexa app on my phone even when I am not anywhere near my house.
