Apparently this app has little respect for privacy. The app requests permissions it doesn't need, and then makes you provide an email address. This is for a sync feature, but is wholly unnecessary and should be skippable. The app is bloated for a simple Bluetooth lamp controller.
Out of four lamps purchased only 1 worked with the app, the others either failed to connect having shown as available or worked for a few minutes before not responding. Whether this is hardware failure or a software issue is irrelevant the product and app fail to work reliably together. Awaiting a response from technical support
It doesn't work 95% of the time. Light bulbs just stop responding.
Great app and great lights. I don't understand all the people complaining about this. It's a great app so far, no connectivity issues and the privacy issues were corrected so it's a 5 star for me. Really love it. I'm actually using the light for a home cockpit and it has proven to be really useful.
No confirmation emails sent during account setup. Tried three different email accounts. I cannot use the app without setting up an account. Regret buying.
It looks like many of the privacy related issues have been fixed in the new version. The App doesn't ask for access to your files, phone calls, SMS and other completely unnecessary things anymore. You still have to create a cloud account - but seems to be just so that different users in the household can share the same setup (it doesn't ask for lots of personal details - effectively it is just the email address that you need) - and it still asks for access to your location but apparently just to help locate the light bulb (the app says it is not using it for any other purpose). The app looks pretty good to me so far. Changing the bulb's colour and brightness was easy. As well as presets, you can save your own custom colours. That's everything I want from the app but there are also other features like setting a sequence of colours. All good for me so far.
Added support for new lighting products
