Osram Lightify RGBW B22 Zigbee full colour smart bulb £13.99 prime / £16.98 non prime

38
Found 27th Jan
Normally £29.99. Works with SmartThings and I believe it can pair directly with Hue aswell. Looks like a good price for a colour Zigbee bayonet bulb.

This is a full colour RGB bulb.

I'm a fan of Smartthings but this is expensive compared to the tradfri (IKEA) bulbs.

Tradfri full colour bulbs are £25 with a remote. £15 for ambiant white. This is full colour, had one delivered today.
Ahh. Full colour. Good then. Shame it's bayonet.
I have a hive bulb which has stopped working. Will this work with hive? Any other recommendations welcome
Osram Lightify were really bad, (they didn't act as zigbee repeaters, poor colours, unreliable, dodgy firmware which broke compatibility with Hue, then you'll need the Lightify Gateway to change firmware) . Would not recommend Osram Lightify from 2 years ago, they may have improved but I doubt it.

Thought it was Philips who deliberatly changed their firmware to not work with other vendors products unless they joined the "friends of hue program"? They reversed this decision later after much nerd rage was vented on the internet

I wish... When I bought a new house I installed many new light fittings prior to any realisation of what smart bulbs were and that I would desperately want them... Only to discover that every single one has E14 fittings (candle specifically) and if I want to be in the smart bulb gang I'm gonna be financially raped. 👏👏👏

I have an Echo Show. Would these bulbs just work with it if I install the relevant app, or would I need additional hardware? Grateful for any advice.

Check Amazon for converters like B22 to E14 (Bayonet to small Screw of which ever fits yours) I have several variations of these converters and they work great with the Hue bulbs and Tradfri.

My Tradfri work fine with my HUE bridge

The reviews on Amazon are a bit iffy

trickytree198420 h, 29 m ago

dunno why I'm replying, but here goes..

listing is for a bayonet bulb, folk reply to say they wish it has a screw fitting

therefore a bayonet to screw adapter required, but they are the same price both ways, so your point is moot

You said "Bayonet to screw". If my lights are screw (which they clearly are as I said it's a shame these are bayonet), then I would need to to convert screw to bayonet hence my comment "needs to be the other way around".


You quote the socket that needs converting not the bulb. Example....

In the interests of accuracy, you were totally incorrect in your original post in the thread referring to these being more expensive then Ikea bulbs that didn't exist and based on the £35 price of the colour Ikea E27 version that does exist (admittedly forced to purchase with a remote, which is only needed once) these are/were still a better deal.

Indeed I did. 6 minutes, literally 2 comments down after I originally commented. Not sure why you are trolling up for a fight 3 days later on something that wasn't even discussed with you?
Aaaanyway, bringing the discussion back on topic.... 🙄

Ordered this, hue hub found it on 3rd attempt - secret seems to be to simultaneously turn bulb on and hit search in hub app.

Control is perfect via hue app, also via Alexa although only seems to be able to set colour to blue via Alexa, and sometimes doesn’t turn off via Alexa, but that might just be my config - I’ve noticed Alexa seems to take a while to “settle down” when you add new stuff?

Think some reviews mentioned an issue with the green colour, mine seems fine ??

Overall this works almost faultlessly, although my other hue bulbs are not colour so I have no comparison. Happy with it for the price.

even in your change of position you can't seem to help taking a shot at the end...."Shame it's bayonet"

Now while everyone is entitled to their views it read to me as if you couldn't resist but to find fault with what the OP had posted.

You then went on to comment on someones reply regarding the fact it was a bayonet bulb and that which is in many instances the norm in this country.

What blinking difference does it make? I know loads of houses that have ES27 screw in only fixture sockets and lamps and loads that have B22 bayonet only fixture sockets and lamps. Why on earth would you feel the need to respond in a way that assumes that because this deal is of less import to you it therefore shouldn't be to other people and then you appear to try to diminish their views as a result?

It needs to be the other way around

Again the need to unnecessarily correct a poster, anyone reading the post understood the point TwistedNerve was colloquially making, the specifics of which someone would check appropriately before they made a purchase I'm sure.

If you'd instead of phrased it something like this "You'll have to be careful when ordering the adapter to make sure you get the correct one, if you order a bayonet to screw adapter you could get one with a male screw in part and a female bayonet socket as even suppliers often get the phraseology of the order of the connectors wrong. If buying on the high street pay close attention to which connector is on which end before purchase, if buying online look closely at the photos for the same reason, don't rely just on the wording as far too often it's incorrect.".

It would have read as trying to be helpful (perhaps even overly helpful to some people...but you can't make everyone happy even some of the time) rather then critical of TwistedNerves attempt to help.

Then the pièce de résistance.....

By arguing for that amount of time on a bit of colloquial phraseology, without focusing on what's important which is communicating to other members what's important, i.e. that they have correct information with which to make better purchasing decisions, you seem to be missing the whole point of this board. People post here mostly to help others find bargains, while many of your posts in this thread seem to focus on ensuring you're right and everyone else is irrelevant.

So the absolute arrogance of your phrase "Does that clear it up for you?" made you look like a person who perhaps would be better investing their time with a bit of introspection about how you see others and their value, rather then spending your time on taking sad and unnecessary potshots at people who at least are trying to help.

I'll be surprised if you accept this in the spirit with which it's written, which is an honest attempt to get you to perhaps look again at what you wrote in the thread from someone else's perspective. Instead I'm pretty sure you'll see it as an attack on you and therein lies the issue. It's up to you what you want to take away from it at the end of the day.....but continued negativity is just not helpful or healthy.

I won't respond anymore in this thread, it's served it's purpose.

I'm not quite sure what your issue is, but my views are my own.

Yes, i didn't realise it was full colour, and i thought it was therefore not a great deal. Within minutes i had said "ahh a good deal". Yes i think its a shame its bayonet. That's my view. Deal with it. I also note how you have commented on other deals pointing out that adaptors aren't ideal. Hypocrite?

Someone said its the standard in the UK, in reply to me, not you. I replied saying not for lamps. I want this for a lamp, so it does matter. Its not me being difficult, this is not me trying to correct someone. This is me stating that while this person feels it may be the solution for most people, its not for me. Again my view in reply to a comment to ME. Not you. I don't care what you think.

On the adaptor, my comment on it "needs to be the other way around" was a genuine one. This was not me correcting the poster. This was me thinking that this bulb was not the solution for me. The ikea adaptors are not the correct solution, i didn't realise there were alternatives. So the correctness here matters. In the end another poster sent me a link to the ones i needed, and i thanked them and ordered 3 bulbs! I did not thank the poster who tried to look smugly correct, when they were in fact not correct. Try to make me look stupid when you are wrong, and ill make a point to correct you, which i feel is fair enough. Again, not about you. I don't care what you think.

I think this sums you up perfectly, so a straight copy and paste will do...
