Aww, got excited here, looking for another cheap rgb one

I'd honestly hold out and pay an extra quid for the rgb

Same I bought one of the white ones and it was wholly disappointing

I got a Google Home Mini yesterday with my phone and all of a sudden im kind down for stuff like this. Does this require a bridge?

The code only once per account.

No bridge required, they connect directly via WIFI.
These do take a little more setting up to work with google home than other smart bulbs at the moment though.

Heat! Bought another!

People often mention that these give out "cold" light, which they do. I bought one a while ago and with less than 10mins work, can get these nice & warm...

Bought a "stage light gel" from ebay (item #151007448376 - PAR 64 103 STRAW colour). Popped off the bulb diffuser (surprisingly easy to do with a firm outward twist). Used the diffuser as a "cookie cutter" to draw round on the gel. Then cut two out, folded them in half (to add rigidity to the gel) and cut a section out the middle for the wifi antenna board to fit through. Popped them into the bulb, replaced the diffuser. Lovely warm light.

I'm awful at crafting and somehow managed it lol.

These gels are designed to cope with VERY hot stage lights so imo usage with Yeelights are absolutely fine as they barely get warm.

Nice one 'feeder'. Spend a bit of time and imagination and reap the rewards.

Agreed. From my experience the white on the RGB ones is brighter as well (as well as being almost endlessly adjustable). The RGG one has been as low as 8.40 today...

Got a link for the rgb? Can't seem to find it

although location based switching is a problem, but on and off timers ok

Or pay an extra £1 and get the RGB version.

"OK Google, bedroom light warm white."

Done.

Useful if you've got one already, but for anybody looking ahead, I can't see the point when the price difference is so small. Tbh I'd probably pay double for what you get extra.

My only issue with that is I mix the white bulbs with colour ones in the downstairs rooms and zone them, I like to keep the wall lights white and others RGB, so I can create "scenes" via our Google Home device.

And anyway I keep missing the voucher deals so I end up paying more for the RGB ones in the end anyway lol

Horsese for courses init, other people's milleage may vary.

Thanks for this, needed a plain white one for the hallway

I don't think I'm bothered about the RGB ones as I won't be creating colours/scenes, just using the bulbs for bedside and room lamps. How warm is the colour on them? Are they harsh when dimmed? The video suggests they're not that bad but that's marketing.
Also, does the app have a timer function or would I still need a timer plug for them?
Ta.

I've got a bunch of superlegends wifi bulbs and something broke the android app, so now they're pretty useless so I'm wary about getting myself into another ecosystem that may become unsupported - I guess that's the appeal of something like Hue. Anyone else worried about that?
