I bought these bulbs to replace standard iridescent PAR38 flood lamps in a pair of American DJ (ADJ) flood lighting fixtures. The previous bulbs were dim, very hot even after just one minute of use, and had a narrow cone of light, more like a spotlight than a proper flood light. They were very inefficient and could only output warm white light; the housing of the flood light was designed to accept colored gel screens to add colors to the light, further reducing their efficiency as this dims the light even more (also needed to be changed manually to change light color). I replaced the PAR38 iridescent bulbs with these BR30 smart LEDs, which was a huge upgrade. These bulbs are much brighter, but they burn very cool so the housing doesn’t even get warm, they can automatically change colors at an adjustable speed, and the bulbs have a significantly wider angle of lighting at the same time, which actually makes the flood light housing glow the same color as the bulb (it looks very cool, before was plain and boring). The light is dispersed evenly and is much brighter than the previous bulbs. I haven’t tested the range that they are effective for, but they are brighter than I expected and 2 of these would be great to fill a small dance floor or stage with light. They were relatively easy to set up and control with my smartphone and wifi, and I synced their outputs so they change color at the same time. They seem like they are well made and built to last for years, and they arrived undamaged. Very happy with my purchase, they are well worth what I paid for the upgrade, and they are cheaper and brighter than other smart LED bulbs I saw. Thanks KHSUIN! Great product
Top Critical Review
Despite the reviews with complaints about brightness and disregarding its high cost, I bought one of these bulbs to see if it could be re-flashed with Tasmota firmware. An earlier version of this bulb was compatible (ESP8266 based) but this bulb is incompatible because it is controlled with a BEKIN BK7231 chip. I’m primarily writing this review to let other Tasmota users know this.
There are many of us who do not want our lighting and home automation to be dependent on the Internet and Chinese controlled servers. I prefer local control and will not buy products that do not provide or cannot be modified for it. I am very impressed by companies such as Sonoff who make it easy for customers to use their products however they want and don’t force them into yet another app (though they do provide one) with unknown current or future security risks.
If a Zigbee version of this bulb is manufactured and the reviews regarding brightness are more positive, I may consider another purchase. As for this bulb, I’ll give it to a friend who doesn’t care who is controlling their house and find another solution for my needs.
