great when it works, and really annoying when it doesn't. it will only show devices that it detects on the network and doesn't not allow you to enter a static address for when the auto detection fails. by default it does not have a way to just turn on the light with a switch to override, but it does appear that you can configure it to power on after a power loss, which I guess is a work around. the lighting is nice and diffused, it's just a shame that the network and app controls are so fussy.

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.
