I have 2x of these bulbs owned them for a couple of months.

Positives: fairly stable connection, doesnt require a hub, decent app and functionality, works well with alexa, good external (outside of house) control of lights over 3G.

Negatives: Bulky twist fit to prong adaptor in box and as with any smart bulb sometimes flicking a switch on is far quicker then saying "Alexa turn on hallway light" when your in a rush or not near alexa's microphone range or iits late and your trying to not wake up the house with a voice command.

Can u switch these on via the app when youre out of the house ? Is there a timer function on the app eg turn on at 6pm ... Off at 11pm ??

Thanks for this. I'm concerned about the bulky adapter too but few manufacturers seem to do bayonet smart bulbs. If it's too much for my lamp I'll switch it out for a smart plug and live with no dimming.

Agreed about the voice thing. I'm repurposing a bunch of Dash buttons (£2) for this, basically remote light switches I can stick anywhere. They can work with IFTTT, you just need the Dasher open source tool running on some computer, I'm using a raspberry pi.

I'm on the lookout for a cheap dimmer switch...

Very. A few hours to set up the first one. Sometimes it fires in 1 second, sometimes up to 5. Currently using it with a TP-Link smart plug, the bulbs are the same tech and API so I expect the same.

very interesting
how user friendly is it to set up though? just download dasher and go? any command line necessary?

It took me a few hours to set up. Dasher is nodejs so you need a recent version of that installed, you need to edit its configuration and somehow set it to start on boot which I guess is command line ish!

I did see a Dash button Windows tool with a gui - have a Google. You'll need a Windows machine on 24/7 though which sounds a bit heavyweight compared to a pi.
