Gearbest been hacked and kept quiet.
Don't trust them
Suitable for a bathroom or showroom do you think?
Cannot see that this is a smart bulb?

Cannot see that this is a smart bulb?


It isn't!

OP please amend the details, it specifically says it isn't a smart bulb in the Q&A at the bottom, and doesn't say it is anywhere on the page.
Tempted at moment my ceiling lights use Electronic Transformers to reduce the voltage these have slowly failed and needed replacement over the last 14 years plus the cost of the bulbs and be nice to put bathroom on a motion sensor at night. Looks like these just take the full voltage and step it down? If it's 240w... Not 220?

Nonsense. They advised of other sites being hacked, and a few hundred customer details may have been exposed, and warned customers to change their login details as a precaution, putting out a statement. Hardly "keeping quiet".

"GearBest suggests that the information may not have leaked from its site, but rather, that the email address and passwords leaked from another source were the same as ones used by GearBest customers. This is plausible".

And it doesn't mean they can't be trusted. Many reputable companies have been hacked.

i believe the requirements for bathroom lights are 12v and a sealable enclosure for the bulb/LED

replave your transformers with LED compatible ones and try screwfix for some SAFER lights!

Not IP rated so I don't think so. Also just realised these aren't smart lights (like the bulbs they sell), so not really a good deal.

Thanks for that update that's settled it for me.
Would never buy bulbs directly from China again, they can be very dangerous without genuine CE marks. Not worth the risk for a couple of quid.

Have you heard of Xiaomi?
Downvoted for tagging this as a computer deal. The boot time for Win 10 on the device is just not acceptable. Doesn't run Crysis. HUKD is becoming unusable with this abuse of tagging.

Chill out, I had thought it was a smart light like the other Yeelight bulbs.

If they are 50w Halogen, simply replace the transformer with a GU10 bulb holder and replace the bulbs with GU10 led bulbs. For the bathroom you'll need:
Zone 1 (above shower or bath) IP65 rated
Zone 2 (0.6m from edage of shower or bath) IP44 rated
Outside these zones can be anything advisable to have at least IP20

As in mobile phones or bulbs ?????

I didn't say i wouldn't buy Chinese made goods, i said i wouldn't buy direct from China as often they aren't up to our safety standards.

My point was Xiaomi are a huge company (they will certainly be bigger than any company whose light bulbs you have bought from in the UK) and have an extremely good reputation to uphold. Buying these bulbs is the same as buying Chinese made bulbs from a UK based company, basically. But cheaper

Think part of the problem we have in this country is that we want to set our own standards and do things just a bit differently. We then are limited to a few old manufacturers that price for the UK market. We have our voltage a bit higher or bulbs a different shape.

In the long run think their standards are safe enough if used sensibly. But that we would be better in long term falling into 220v setups.
