I ordered three of these bulbs for a chandelier. Setup was super easy, it only took a few minutes and just one try. Whites are EXCELLENT! They get super bright and the temperature range goes from a relaxing yellowish warm white to a crisp cool white. They also dim well, with very low light when set all the way down to 1%.

Now the caveats. These are minor issues, so some may care more than others.

The SwitchBot app allowed me to group the bulbs, but unfortunately that removed the ability to sync with music. So beware that if you buy multiple bulbs, and try to use the music feature, only one will work at a time. Grouping also took away the ability to control each bulb individually through the app, but they can be addressed through Google Assistant. However, I can’t ask Google to control my group, as in, I can’t say “turn on the chandelier.” Hope SwitchBot adds this capability.

Strangely, colors don’t translate well when I ask Assistant to change them. Pink appears white, orange-red is just orange, and the colors generally seem drowned out by a background white light. This is especially odd since the SwitchBot app is able to produce much more vivid and accurate colors. Not sure about Alexa but I’d guess it experiences a similar issue, since like Google they send RGB values to SwitchBot to set colors. Hope the developers remedy this. I have other smart bulbs and lamps controlled the same way, and none get colors this off.

Warning for those who like physical light switches: there is no button accessory in the SwitchBot ecosystem that can control more than one light. I bought the SwithBot Remote (which I’m using with their hub) but found it could only turn on or off a single bulb. As with other smart bulbs, you ‘lose’ the light switch since power must always be on. Would be great if SwitchBot updated the remote to play better with their bulbs. I suggested to them it could work as a dimmer, and really hope they make that happen. A physical switch is the most important accessory for smart bulbs, but sadly SwitchBot has none to offer.

In all, these are great, high quality bulbs at a decent price. Most of the time I have them on daylight or warm white. Once in a while, when I feel like setting a color, I need to use their app for best results. The limitations mentioned can mostly be addressed on the software side, so hopefully SwitchBot makes improvements in this regard. I really like these bulbs, and would not hesitate to get more. But please give me a switch to turn on the lights!
