?Hub Required(Sold Separately)?: Sengled smart light bulbs are compatible with Amazon Echo (4th Gen/Plus/Show 10/Studio), SmartThings, Wink, Hubitat or Sengled Hub. Sengled smart hub needs to be connected to your home router with an Ethernet cable. Not compatible with Philips Hue bridge system.
Top Positive Review
These lights are great quality, dimmable via digital control, and most importantly they pair instantly with HA using a HUSBZB-1. The have an onboard wattage usage detector, which is a nice touch. This is an A+ product and I will be purchasing their items moving forward.
Keep in mind, however, that these are not zigbee repeaters so you will need something to extend/strengthen your mesh. I suggest Sengled Zigbee Smart Plugs at about 25ft intervals from the primary radio – they provide the benefit of working well with Xiaomi/Aqara products, too.
Top Critical Review
Purchased the new Sengled hub that supports Homekit and 6 bulbs. The hub connected quickly, no issues there. Opened three bulbs scanned the codes in the Sengled app and put them in the ceiling fixture. Turned on the light and waited for them to pair. No go. Tried a couple of more times, no go. Tried as I might, no matter how many times I tried to turn the lights off/on 10 times, I could not get the bulbs to reset. Made the assumption the dimmer might be an issue. Took one bulb out and put it in a desk lamp. After several attempts of turning the lights off/on 10 times, the bulb finally reset. Tried to pair again, no go! Note: the bulb was about 8 ft away from the hub.
Called Sengled customer support. The person I got seemed half engaged and not that interested. Basically had me do what I did already, still could not get it to pair I mentioned the dimmer and he said they don’t recommend using these bulbs with a dimmer as it effects the life of the bulb.
Life is short, I said thanks to the support person for their “help”. Removed the bulbs, disconnected the hub, packed it all back up and pressed the return button on the Amazon site. Done and done.
Not a great experience for me, but with all smart devices, your milage may vary. Good luck if you purchase these.
Customer Questions & Answers
Are these dimmable?
Answer: Yes they are dimmable
It says it will be more stable, but why does mine keep dropping?
Answer: I have encountered this situation before, and then I asked the seller for help. Here are some of their suggestions: Sengled e26 smart bulbs should be avoided in metal lampshades. Or avoid placing the smart led bulb and router near doors, glass and other objects that seriously hinder signal quality.
If use another compatible hub instead of Sengled hub, can you fully control these smart bulbs?
Answer: No worries. You can fully control these Zigbee bulbs.
Do these bulb’s work with the philip’s hue hub setup?… i use the api to shut them on and off and want to make sure these show up before i purchase.
Answer: These need a hub to be able to control them with a phone or Alexa. I don??t know if it works with the Phillips one, but the manufacturer states that it works with hubs such as the following: Sengled Smart Hub, SmartThings Hub, Wink Hub and Habitat Hub.
