I'm not that tech savvy, so it took me about a half hour to get the hang of it. Lacks blue and red depth, but the white options are superb. Bought this for lighting class and excited to get started with it.
After update, bulb dimms to about 50% brightness on its own. Brightness ln app shows 100%. Zero entries are in schedule. Adjusting brightness to 0 then 100% corrects the issue for 2 seconds, then issue returns. It's as if Circadian settings are overriding defaults, but there is no way to turn off these settings. This new app is embarrassing unintuitive and complicated compared to the old one. I may see if I cam just use the old app to mamage this bulb. Or just have the light at it's default at all times. It's better than dealing with all of the problems I'm having between the horrible app and the bulb.
Edit: We got IFTTT integration after years of waiting! Awesome. Still can't consistently turn the light bulbs on and off. Don't invest in this product. The old app actually worked a lot better, and that's pathetic. New users have been forced to the new app at this point, but the fact is people stuck with the old Gen1 app since it worked that much better. The hardware itself is top notch, so kudos to that. The software though really is unacceptable. The bulbs are slow to respond, the app is counter intuitive, it's easy to change your bulbs to a different color instead of turning them off, and the updates coming from the team are pathetic. It's bad enough this team made their customers wait months and months past promised delivery dates of this new app and overall it's a giant disappointment. I have 5 ilumi bulbs and I'd never recommend them in their current state.
App is super buggy and doesn't work half the time for my two ilumi bulbs
It occasionally crashes and forces me to log in again. Otherwise, very pleased with scheduling sunrises- which is why I wanted LED bulb in the first place. Plus the bonus of not needing a hub or bridge or Wi-Fi nonsense, is fantastic. Big money saver!
I'm really enjoying the new app. The one thing that would make it better would be the new smart strip. Ive been waiting for what seems like an eternity. I ordered mine on the kickstarter program about a year ago and still no smart strip. What's the deal Ilumi?!
