We find these bulbs a good value for the money. Here’s the breakdown.

Pros:
1. Relatively easy setup once you figure out how to get it into pairing mode.
2. Brighter than our Sengled bulbs
3. Better color saturation than our Sengled bulbs
4. Thus far, lower failure rate than our Sengled bulbs OR my Phillips Hue bulbs.
5. Good value for the price for multicolor functionality compared with non color Hue bulbs.

Cons:
1. (This is a big one) this bulb is not the exact size of an A19 bulb. E26 base is fine, but the bulb is too big to fit my globe fixtures over them. In this case size matters. The globes just skim over a real A19, so a millimeter of difference means it cant be used in those fixtures (my favorites).
2. Requires setting the bulb up with a separate app before Alexa can find it and set it up.
3. Pairing. Could stand more precise instructions. I’ll give some below based on my experience.

ABOUT PAIRING:
Ok. Here’s what works for me. Once you have the SmartLife app ready to look for the bulb, and it tells you to put the bulb into pairing mode:
1. Turn switch OFF
2. Count about 15 second.
3. About a second apart for each switch: ON…OFF…ON…OFF…ON…OFF…ON…
4. Wait a couple of seconds and it should start blinking.
5. Continue following SmartLife app instructions once it is blinking

NOTE: Don’t go too fast. Don’t go too slow. I wish there was a better way to do this, but it’s the same for all bulbs we have tried. If you don’t get it into pairing mode the first time, turn it off and try again from step 1 slightly (SLIGHTLY) faster, (or if you think you went too fast go slightly slower). I hope that’s helpful.

Manufacturer, please adjust the size of the outer casing to match industry standard for A19 bulbs so we can use them in our globe fixtures. Thanks for an otherwise pretty decent affordable multicolor dimmable LED Smart bulb.

EDIT: So, the quality is not as good as I thought, and one of them already malfunctioned. Will not turn on at all. It actually DETECTS being on, but there’s no light. Tried pulling it out and putting back in. Not even after an attempted reset.

So, seems these ones blow out fast, at least. I’ve only had these ones a couple months…

Instructions not clear, took me over an hour to set up 6 bulbs.

Ok, so for those of you having an issue, you will need to reset the bulbs by screwing them in, turning them off for 10 seconds (about), and doing on-off-on-off-on-off-on (starting off, and it’s either 4 or 5 times turning it on and off, with the final position being on).

Now, this seems well and good, but NO, you must NOT do it FAST, which is NOT clear at all. EVERY TIME YOU TURN IT BACK ON, you must wait almost a full second, BEFORE you turn it back off (half a second minimum, but don’t go much over a second, either).

That being said:
1) Turn off for 10 seconds, if it’s not blinking
2) Turn on, wait like just under 1 second, turn off
3) Repeat step 2, 3 or 4 more times
4) On the 4th or 5th time back on, LEAVE it on, and WAIT about 5 seconds (it does NOT immediately start blinking, but you MIGHT notice a SLIGHT dip in brightness, immediately)
5) THEN, and ONLY THEN, can you add it with the app.

Other than the horrendous setup time, if you don’t know HOW FAST (slow) you must turn the bulbs on and off, the bulbs themselves are very nice and work well.

They do get hotter, though, faster than other smart bulbs, probably due to the brightness. So keep that in mind.
