The Android app setup process is one of the worst I've experienced. When trying to connect it to your home's wifi, it doesn't let you enter the wifi network's name directly. Instead you have to choose the network name from a drop down list. However this list only seems to be populated with a maximum of 10 networks. I live in a high density apartment building, there are easily 30+ networks in range. In order to get my light set up, I had to keep attempting to set it up, hope my network was in the list, and if it wasn't, exit setup and start over. It took me 9 tries before my network was in the drop down list. Additionally, if your network's name is hidden, you wouldn't be able to set up your light at all. Once your light is set up, the app's functionality also is severely lacking. It doesn't have any presets or saved levels for you to save your favorite lighting levels, if you need to change the settings you have to change the temperature and brightness manually every time. Additionally, it doesn't integrate with any smart home systems like Siri, Google Assistant, Alexa, etc.

They're tricky to set up. Their main fault is they are only compatible with a certain type of network security. My 2.4GHz network was set to WPA2(AES), and it didn't work, so I changed it to WPA/WPA2(AES/TKIP), which allows for backwards compatibility with WPA encryption. (you can Google how to do this or ask or ISP if they didn't send instructions). Then they were instantly connected.

An exercise in frustration. Connected properly to app and then never again. VPN on/off, 2.4Ghz/5Ghz/LAN, inches away from signal it doesn't matter, it won't work right. It'd be a nice security feature to just shut off the wifi and use the buttons, but no. The wifi's sitting wide open for someone to connect it to their network (assuming they could even get it to connect). This all goes for the windows app as well. The software implementation is REALLY bad.
