Further, the product that is shipped is the MSL120 and the packaging does not indicate HomeKit compatibility like the packaging shown in this Amazon listing -- it ONLY indicates GOOGLE ASSISTANT AND AMAZON ALEXA COMPATIBILITY -- which is correct, since the MSL120 is NOT HOMEKIT COMPATIBLE AS STATED EVEN ON THE MANUFACTURER WEBSITE. I know this because my first order was delivered with two MSL120 bulbs which I wasted 30 minutes to confirm are INCOMPATIBLE WITH HOMEKIT, then another 30 minutes driving to the UPS Store to return. I returned the item for exchange and clearly indicated that the incorrect item was delivered, however THE REPLACEMENT ORDER DELIVERED EXACTLY THE SAME INCORRECT MSL120 model INSTEAD OF THE ADVERTISED MSL120HK MODEL. After this second snafu, I contacted Amazon customer service to alert them to the issue and request that they ensure that the correct item is delivered to me since this vendor clearly lacks the ability to read and respond to customer input, but I was told that Amazon could not do anything to assist since a replacement order was already sent by the vendor, so my only option was to return the order/request a refund and reorder from another vendor. Seriously? THIS INCOMPETENT VENDOR IS THE MANUFACTURER -- SO ORDERING FROM ANY OTHER VENDOR IS LIKELY TO RESULT IN THE SAME ISSUE, SO NO THANK YOU. ADVICE: Save yourself the hassle and DO NOT ORDER THIS PRODUCT IF YOU WANT HOMEKIT COMPATIBLE LIGHTBULBS. The vendor does not pay enough attention to get it right, and Amazon is of ZERO assistance in correcting the issue and their tone-deafness only compounds the frustration caused by this incompetent vendor.

Addition of Home Kit is a handy feature
I bought a third bulb to finish out my office fixtures. I now have three of them in my office. My review from the previous bulbs are below as not much has changed functionally wise other than the addition of Home Kit for Apple devices. This MSL120 easily paired with the Meross app and I had no trouble adding it to Home Kit on my Ipad. I did notice that the base of the bulb, the part that screws in and white part of the base was really hot when I unscrewed it, but I think that is somewhat to be expected.
Previous review for 2 pack of bulbs without Home Kit:
I installed this two pack of bulbs in my office where I’ve been working at home for the past six months or so. Installation was as easy as screwing in a light bulb ( I sense a how many people does it take to change a light bulb joke here…moving on). Setup was a breeze as well, just open up the Meross app, click the + sign at the top, select smart bulb and then follow the prompts through setup. I experienced zero issues setting up the bulb, which is something I cannot say for some other Mercury brand smart bulbs I own that can be a pain in the butt.
These smart bulbs give you the ability to easily control not only the color of the bulb, but also the temperature (2700K to 6500K) of the bulb. There is a spinner will that gives you preset temperatures. This is important when I work in the office as I don’t like the bright white / soft blue temperature (6500k) and prefer the warmer 2700K. I put the old bulb back in the other socket and then adjusted one of the smart bulbs to 2700K and I can not tell a difference between the warmth of the old bulb next to the Meross smart bulb set to 2700k. Needless to say, I really like this feature.
Adjusting the colors of the bulbs are just as easy. There is a spinner wheel of colors to choose from. The colors change quickly, however they could be brighter. The one thing Meross needs to add is a way to match colors on multiple bulbs. Right now I set a shade of blue for bulb 1 and then have to get a close as possible on bulb 2 to get them to match. A way to pair the bulbs with the same color would be helpful.
I really only have two minor cons. The first is that there is no preset scenes in the app that works with the color mode. Some other bulbs I have used give you the option to set scenes like a rave or Christmas or disco. Its not necessary, but I personally think it would be a cool feature to add.
The second con really applies to every smart bulb that I have bought over the years, is that the lumens need to be higher. A higher lumen count would make the bulb brighter and it would really help when you use the bulb with a set color.
Overall, I’m very happy with the bulbs and at this price for a two pack, its hard to beat.09/21/2022Verified Purchase
Runs a bit hot
These bulbs did everything I expected them to, except keep cool. After maybe 10 minutes at full brightness, the bulbs were hot to the touch at the base but they do claim to only cost a dollar to run for 3 hours a day every day for a year. Other than that, the bulbs connect to HomeKit pretty seamlessly and I only really used the Meross app to update them.09/02/2022Verified Purchase
Great HomeKit bulb and brand
This is my second 2 pack of Meross bulbs. I started with a plug from that brand and liked it so I tried the bulbs and they are great too.
They integrate to a HomeKit in just a minute or two via the Meross app. The bulb colors and brightness are on par with any other bulb and I have yet to have one burn out or have issues. They do update firmware so it’s good to check the Meross app from time to time, especially after Apple uploades.08/06/2022Verified Purchase
Inexpensive, reliable, Wifi bulb. Some limitations.
I use Apple Homekit for most of our smart devices. Within Homekit, setup was relatively easy, once I worked past a limitation of my router. We have a Google Wifi mesh router and there is no way to “switch off” the 5.0 gHz radio. The Meross devices, including this bulb, will only attach to a 2.4 gHz network. Many routers, you can go in and switch the 5gig system off, and this would allow setup to be a breeze. For me, I have to unplug all of my Google points (pucks) except for the main one, get as far away from the main router as possible and refresh the wifi signal on my phone until my phone attaches itself to the 2.4gig network. 5gHz wifi does not pass through walls or other objects as well as 2.4 does so the further you get from the router, the better chance of attaching to the 2.4gig signal. Once I did that, the bulb appeared as a new device in my Apple Home app. I then plugged in the 8-digit code and the bulb was added to my “Home.” After this was done, I added the bulb to my Meross app as well. This way you can do any firmware upgrades and such. Apple Home app does not let you do any of this.
My first reaction to full brightness was slight disappointment. I have the bulb in a table lamp and wish it was a bit brighter for reading and such. That said, for many applications, I think the brightness would be sufficient. The bulb seems to have limitless color options. The Home app and the Meross app give you two different scales in order to adjust the color labeled “Color” and “Temperature.” If you know about lighting, this is kind of weird because ALL color has a temperature. However with this bulb, the “color” setting gives you access to a color palette of what I call “party lights.” Reds, blues, green, etc. The “Temperature” setting basically allows you to setup the bulb between the colors often labeled as “daylight” or “soft white” if you are trying to match this bulb to existing light in the room. I was able to get it to match the bluish daylight coming through the window in the 5000k range as well as the more orange temperature, 3000k-3500k of some conventional light bulbs in the room. I just kind of wish these 2 setting were combined into 1. I think it would be easier to setup.
The bulb responds to the Home and Meross apps well, although I think the Meross app allows for faster, more consistent adjustment. The Home app seems a little more sluggish when making changes. It doesn’t always update the graphics when the bulb changes. For instance, if the light is colored white, sometimes the graphic shows it to be red. I suspect this is just how Homekit works and might work better with firmware updates in the bulb. I feel like Homekit is more for making specific programs, or “scenes” of multiple connected devices and automating them rather than making real-time changes to your devices. The Meross app is very snappy when making real-time adjustments. You can also use the Meross app to create “scenes” and “routines” (their terminology for automations) although I didn’t test any of this since I use Homekit.
As I said, I put this in a table lamp. After testing this bulb thoroughly, I removed the bulb and replaced the standard soft white LED bulb that was originally in the lamp. It is a 3-way bulb that gets far brighter. The Meross bulbs works well, but not in this location.
My only true “deal breaker” with this bulb is if you turn the lamp off at the switch, it comes back on in the last known state. For instance, if the light is set for a red color at 50% brightness, that is how it will come on if the lamp is turned off conventionally at the switch. This may be fine for some, but for me I do not want to have to go find my phone to turn the light on and off all the time. If I have the light very low while watching TV, turn it off at the switch to go to bed, and my wife turns it on the next night, I want it to come on full bright immediately so it is usable right away. For many, this is likely not a big deal, but in our home it is. We have a 4-bulb lamp in our home office (different brand of bulbs) where my wife has the 4 bulbs facing different directions and has them programmed differently for different times of the day (i.e. sunrise, full sun, dusk, clouds, etc.) to reduce reflections on her computer monitors. When leaving the office for the evening, she simply shuts off the wall switch. In the morning, she can just turn on the switch and all 4 lights come on full and she can adjust from there. I would really like to see this functionality in a smart bulb that is to be used for primary lighting. I think this would be a good bulb to use as an “accent” light somewhere, or in a kid’s room, or as a novelty but I really don’t have any practical use for it as a primary light source.
Easy setup (unless you have a Google mesh router)
Infinite color options
Apple Homekit compatible
Meross app easy to use
Wakes up in last known state if power switch is turned off
Bulb could be brighter
Wish the “color” and “temperature” tabs were combined into one in the apps
Apple Home app is a bit sluggish when controlling the bulb (may be Homekit issue, not necessarily a Meross issue)07/18/2022Verified Purchase
Setup is clunky, but they work!
Setup was a bit rough. I am using mine with homekit. I knew that I needed to update the firmware before it would work correctly, but it took me a bit to find out the correct process for doing this. You have to connect it like normal, update the firmware in the meross app, then disconnect it completely from both meross and homekit. Then do the next bulb. Once you’ve done this to all of them, then you can connect them all like normal. They’re bright, responsive and I’m really enjoying using homekit in my apartment. Pro tip: buy some NFC tags so you can control your lights by tapping the tags with your phone!04/01/2022Verified Purchase
