So, I’ll admit, I bought these because they were cheaper than the Phillips Hue which was recommended to me by a friend. Overall, I really like these lights, but here is some feedback.

The standard LED bulbs installed in my house were a “cool” white, and very bright to the point it would almost give me a headache because my walls are white. I thought the solution for the overhead lights was to install a dimmer switch, but a friend recommended smart bulbs because they have a dimmer feature and you can change the colors to something funky like purple or toggle between cool and warm whites.

If you use the app that is needed for installation, there are a bunch of colors to pick from. Alexa limits this feature a little, which was a little disappointing, but if you know Alexa, she tends to do this with a lot of smart items. The different white tones are amazing, and when I set it to “cool” white, it is exactly like the standard bulb I was replacing. Dimmer feature is great, and I love the “warm” white setting even at full brightness. This is exactly what I wanted. The funky colors are a nice option, but they are not very bright. I can only use them at night, but it is a nice option for mood lighting or watching movies.

I had some initial setup problems, which were frustrating but I was able to work it out. I did not realize that to connect to wifi, it can only be configured through 2.4 ghz. I have Cox panoramic gateway modem, which toggles between 2.4 ghz and 5.0 ghz depending on your proximity to the modem to give you the best signal. Because the lights were close, they wanted to connect to the 5.0 ghz which does not work for these bulbs. I could not override the 5.0 ghz through the setup app. I had split the gateway into 2 separate channels to accommodate the lights, which then resulted in me having to change wifi settings and password for a TON of items. Figuring this out cost me a lot of time and energy, but I’ll take the blame since I did not read about or understand this product feature prior to purchasing.

Now that everything is configured, I am thinking about purchasing more bulbs. I really like the smart light options. The only issue I’ve had in the past couple of months, is I have one light switch for 2 bulbs. Sometimes when I tell Alexa to turn on, she only turns on 1, so I have to duplicate the command. This has only happened twice, and I’ve used the command at least 50 times so its definitely not a consistent issue. Plus, I think this is an Alexa problem, not a Sunco problem.

The color is good with many solid choices. That being said they were a pain to get all set up and automated/ connected to Alexa. I work as an Apple System Admin- I am familiar with tech, and I would not want to be someone who’s not Tech savy and attempt this. The music setting in the app is cool for a min. But worst thing is the buzzing noise they make! My wife refuses to go in the room with them on.
