Are these ‘work with Nest’ compatible
I have the LB130 colour bulb. Managed to get it for £30. Its good with an easy connection app, can also be turned on/off with Alexa. I originally bought the triple Hue set but then realised it was ridiculously expensive when all I really used was the living room bulb so sold them. This TP lInk does a good job for what I need and would recommend if you only want to use one light but its not as good as the Hue for colour range and brightness .
I have 2x of these bulbs and they are pretty good and the app is well made. The only real negatives are they are bulky when used with the bayonet adaptor and they more reguarly drop connection then the smart plugs do (HS-110). If its a high traffic zone of the house i wouldnt use them its far too slow saying "Alexa turn on lights" and quicker to just flick a switch.

Be careful, you might loose some weight getting up from the sofa to use switch!

That's not the only purpose. They are quite useful to turn on / off lights when you are away from your home.
However I agree, about your weight comment.
I got a few and compared to the Hive versions I'll be getting a couple to replace them.
Hive switches on at 100% and doesn't change till next command.
TP remember it last setting and updates right away, one of mine sometimes flashes on power on till it picks the wifi up in a few seconds.
No issues with the app and have Tp smart sockets.

What can I say. I'm living the dream.
Mods - Are we sure it's £19.99 prime / £23.98 non prime? I don't have prime and it's showing at £19.99 in my basket. 33640663-NLsRB.jpg
Great bulbs

Works wonderfully with Google home
"Hey Google, dim the lights and play barry white" is my new favorite thing to say
I like the look of that tunable one
I have several LB110's (not 7 though) and they are pretty good.
There a great reason for not answering the door to visitors.

I called round the other night the lights were on - no we were out!! smart light you need some.

Its not a lazyness thing at all, most of the time its more effort to say "Alexa turn on lights" then flick a switch. I work in IT so i like gadgets, i also use them for security as i dont work locally and to save on power if i accidentally leave a downstairs light on. I also use them as the dimmers in smart bulbs dont need special £15-18 LED dimmer switches to operate so it saves a lot of money.

Will cost you about 6 kids behaviour like that!
I bought two of these bulbs a while back and they worked most of the time initially, although Alexa would regularly say "lights isn't responding".
I updated the firmware to the latest version (which made absolutely no difference), I tried resetting the bulbs several times, re-booted my router etc.
Now, several weeks later the will probably work for and hour or two. I can dim the lights and watch TV, but when it is time for bed I say "Alexa lights off" only to be told every time...."sorry lights isn't responding".

I would advise people to look elsewhere if you don't want to turn the lights on and of manually every day.

My Hive bulbs remember the last setting I set them at.
Is that after turning them off at the switch?
The difference between these and Hue/Hive/Ikea Tradfri etc is these are straight WiFi so you don't need a specific hub. You just log them onto your existing WiFi.

They're 2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n WiFi with tiny aerials. (Make sure you use the app to update the bulb firmware, it apparently solves reliability issues for some people. And make sure your router doesn't automatically change wifi channel!) Unless you've got an enterprise-grade WiFi set-up at home, you'll likely hit issues if you start having a lot of these bulbs.

If you just want one or two bulbs, it's a reasonable choice if you've got good WiFi at home. If you are putting more than a couple of bulbs into your setup, you're probably better of switching to Hue etc. You'll get better reliability and lower total cost with Hue (if you buy twin-packs when they're on 3 for 2).

My bulb is in a lamp that is always switched on. I only turn the bulb on and off through the app.
