First, I'd like to say that this is a startup and this company is just getting started creating affordable smart home equipment and I'm super excited. The bulb is great. It has some incredible color range. The app is off to a great start. Here are my suggestions: 1. Since the bulb is based on RGB, let me type in an RGB value, even if that value gets normalized for the bulb capabilities. 2. ***Fixed thank you!!*** The color wheel is difficult to navigate. The very center gives a blue hue, where it should be pure white (5000 K), which I cannot achieve. Soft white (2700 K) is impossible as well, because there isn't enough yellow. 3. Allow brightness setting after I have chosen a color from an image. The perceived color is not always the brightness used by the app. 4. There is a bug in the scheduling setup where if I choose a day, and save the schedule, it reverts to the day before my chosen day. I have yet to see the lamp actually follow the schedule and turn on. Thanks guys for a great start! I look forward to seeing the progress!
Decent app with huge improvements necessary. 1) Color wheel is extremely frustrating. Please improve UX 2) I couldn't add any of my btle devices for proximity. 3) schedule time seems to be off by an hour (22:00 corresponds to 11pm). Is this due to daylight savings? 4) where is the third party connectivity? IFTTT? What in the world?
Still no 3rd party integration, no ios version (button on their homepage is just static), and no bluetooth proximity support. I wish they would at least release an sdk or expose their api so that one of us could make a better app. It seems like the hardware is good, just failing hard on the software side... Also, it looks like they hired a service from India to boost their app rating - not cool.
The best LED bulb you can buy. I own several philips Hue and this one literally outdoes the philips hue in almost every way. Its colours are way more accurate than the hue, its colour temperature is absolutely unnecessarily amazing and has been a really really solid experience thus far. Speaking of solid this thing is probably one of the most premium bulbs ive ever felt, it has a very nice heavy weight and is a posh black colour. Few cons: - The brightness control on the app is really glitchy. Sometimes i have to turn the slider in the opposite way or even in the middle to increase the brightness. - The app looks incredibly like the philips hue app, I would like much better UI.
The communication time is horrible. The app freezes all the time. It does not recognize bulbs as on, so the bulbs needs to turned off and back on manually and it still isn't guaranteed to work. The bulbs come on by themselves when automation are set, which sounds great but it's not the time that is set. Need to get away from using the app since there are few functions on it and move to Alexa, iftt, or Google home. Frankly nice bulb.... very poor customer service and bad app development. Thus bulb is a year over due, the app should have been perfect by the time the bulbs shipped. But honestly it's like it was just thrown together.
The app is OK, it can use some serious UI and usability improvements. » We should have the ability to synchronize bulbs, I own 4 and it's impossible to set them exactly the same due to goofy touch screen sliders. » Give us some values! Brightness should be entered as a number if desired, the OCD in me kills when I can't set light bulbs in the same room to exactly the same brightness. » The concept of a color wheel is OK if you have one bulb, I want to select from presets and set all my bulbs to exactly the same value including brightness, I want to even synchronize rooms, there should be options other than the color wheel and brightness slider. I understand this is work in progress, but I'd expect these simple features, at least synchronization! A room should be treated as a single bulb if desired and all the lights within it should be controlled with one value.
