EXCELLENT price on the only bulb out there you don't need a damned hub to use

I got one on ebay for about this price, and now wish I'd bought more!

works great with google home mini
lights on/off
dim lights (hey google, play barry white and dim the lights - works a treat )
make lights brighter

using IFTTT I set it to turn on in case my nest protect detected smoke or carbon monoxide

can't say enough good things about TPlink, their kasa app, the HS110 smartplugs, the LB110 smart bulbs. I just wish that their kasa cam was already available in the UK - US only for now, and according to a review don't buy it from amazon.com because even if you get it in the UK it won't work yet for some reason (region restriction?)

IMO LB100 that doesn't dim wasn't good enough, LB120 that 'tunes' the white colour wasn't a useful/necessary feature to me, and LB130 that changes colour also wasn't useful
IKEA Tradfri dimmer kit is cheaper at £15 (and works without a hub) but I found the battery life in the dimmer to be very poor.
They were £20 in Sainsburys just after Xmas and that was the cheapest I've seen. Got one then and it works well but with the bayonet adapter attached it is quite big.

You could also consider a smart plug connected to a lamp if you've got a spare one knocking around (I've been looking for uses for the smart plugs I was using for Christmas lights.)

But £12-15 a bulb for the likes of Hue/Hive/Tradfri is becoming more and more common, so in that context it's not great.But for this product itself, heat.

The standard size is B22d-2, often referred to in the context of lighting as simply BC or B22.

Bayonet Bulbs - B22d-BC

Bayonet Light bulbs are hugely popular and B22d-BC caps are found on most light bulbs in the UK. Bayonet Cap bulbs are installed using a simple push and twist action.

You presume right seeing as you've turned off the power to it

The key thing is, what state does the bulb return to after power loss. The Hue lights I have in my lounge (which a permanently live and controlled with a Hue Tap) come on after a power cut (which is the desired effect for me). If you plan to control with a physical switch you'd want the same to happen. Depends entirely how the manufacturer implemented their bulb.

You'd like to think so but the once-respected RAC has licensed their brand to be slapped on all sorts of tat. Sad really. I'm no great fan of the AA branded merchandise either but at least they appear to have maintained some sort of quality control when they license their brand.

I doubt there's anyone within CVC (the RAC's latest owners) with any interest in bulbs except for monitoing the income from the brand license they sold!

From Wiki:
RAC Limited (The RAC) is a British automotive services company headquartered in Walsall, West Midlands. Its principal services are roadside assistance and general insurance, and its subsidiaries include RAC Motoring Services Ltd, RAC Financial Services Ltd and RAC Insurance Limited.

The RAC emerged as the "Associate Section" of the Royal Automobile Club founded at the turn of the 20th century, and it was incorporated as R.A.C. Motoring Services Ltd. in 1978. It was sold by the members of the Royal Automobile Club to Lex Service Plc in April 1999, which subsequently renamed itself RAC Plc. In March 2005, RAC Plc was acquired by Aviva, and therefore delisted.

Aviva then sold the RAC to the Carlyle Group in June 2011. Although Carlyle had originally planned a stock market flotation for the RAC,[3] in September 2014, Carlyle agreed to sell almost half its stake to Singapore's sovereign wealth fund GIC Private Limited.[4]

In December 2015, Carlyle agreed to sell its remaining stake to CVC Capital Partners in a transaction valuing the RAC at £1.4 billion.

CVC Capital Partners is a private equity firm with approximately US$80 billion in secured commitments across European and Asian private equity, credit and growth funds. In total, the CVC Group manages over US$52 billion of assets. Since 1981, CVC has completed over 300 investments across a wide range of industries and countries. CVC was founded in 1981 and today has over 400 employees working across its network of 24 offices throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas.

I'm not quite sure what your issue is, but my views are my own. Yes, i …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...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.Now, so that i don't waste any more time reading your views, which i frankly do not care about and are not helpful in helping me or other understand the potential solutions out there...consider yourself blocked.

Full colour. Good then. Shame it's bayonet.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. trickytree1984 27th Jan Andyjb2345 m agoWhat, like most of the country? For ceiling maybe. Not for lamps.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?Then when someone is talking about a socket adapter you say... trickytree1984 27th Jan TwistedNerve1 h, 20 m agoyou can get a bayonet to screw adapter for 99p or less It needs to be the other way aroundAgain 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..... trickytree1984 28th Jan TwistedNerve2 h, 36 m agodunno why I'm replying, but here goes..listing is for a bayonet bulb, folk … Read the rest of the comments. This has been discussed. Since you've taken the time to try and make me look incorrect.... 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.

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...

Now, so that i don't waste any more time reading your views, which i frankly do not care about and are not helpful in helping me or other understand the potential solutions out there...consider yourself blocked.

You've asked so I'll reply.

In your original response you made a mistake, although you changed your statement a little later you didn't acknowledge the original error....

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

Ahh. Full colour. Good then. Shame it's bayonet.

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.

Andyjb2345 m agoWhat, like most of the country?
For ceiling maybe. Not for lamps.

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?

Then when someone is talking about a socket adapter you say...

TwistedNerve1 h, 20 m agoyou can get a bayonet to screw adapter for 99p or less
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.....

TwistedNerve2 h, 36 m agodunno why I'm replying, but here goes..listing is for a bayonet bulb, folk …

Read the rest of the comments. This has been discussed. Since you've taken the time to try and make me look incorrect....

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....



Does that clear it up for 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.
