Needs install guide and apparently more detailed explanations Needs some sort of help system to explain what each function is or the proper way to set things up. For those of you complaining/whining about the permissions, specifically location, did you even know what you ordered? The bulbs are supposed to be aware of your exact location so that if set, lights turn on and off as you approach. It's no different than other smart home devices needing accounts and location. Suggest you go back and watch the product video. *sigh*
The app looks okay , still waiting on my bulbs I'm giving this app neutral 3 stars until I can test it with the bulbs. Also if you don't like the permissions you can turn them off. Google it
Weird permissions If storage is used to access photos of my house and taking photos is optional, it should be optimal as well. Standard images can be provided instead and have it optional. Location is really needed? Cannot be inferred by other means (wifi) and be optional? Do you need phone identity or just a way to identify the phone, you already have the verified account? I'm not at ease to give permissions to my life easily. Also Password says alphanumeric but it actually needs mixed numbers and letters
Please explain? Your app is basically an advanced light switch, which is great and I can't wait to test it out when the bulbs arrive, but why do you need access to all my media and the use of my phone? I really don't want to give you those permissions when I don't know what you intend to do with it?
Waste of Money Would not recommend. The bulbs are poor quality and constantly fail. The app is poor and requires too many permissions. The customer service is terrible and does not respond to any emails(proof there is no response from the developer to any review here). I'm sticking with my Hue lightbulbs.
Lightbulb doesn't need cam access This unnecessarily intrusive app seals the deal. I'm not even opening the box that ×still× has yet to arrive. A Wi-Fi color light toy has no business REQUIRING photos of my house or tracking my movements or phone activity. It needs to turn on, change pretty colors, turn off. This review will stand until an app with sane permissions is released. Side note, these required permissions are not revealed until after you've installed. Also note, none of the legit 5 star reviews are actually for *this* app. Evil.
