Frequently asked question

Do these bulbs use zigbee or bluetooth to connect alexa devices? description mentions echo dot (3rd gen) which does not include zigbee hub.

Just got these for Prime Day deal. You need a hub to take full advantage of voice control (Alexa/Google). Otherwise, you need to set them up via Bluetooth for Alexa which means the Echo device needs to be within 30 feet of the lights.

You need a hub to take full advantage of voice control (Alexa/Google). Otherwise, you need to set them up via Bluetooth for Alexa which means the Echo device needs to be within 30 feet of the lights. Even my Echo Dot 4 feet away from the lights, the operation of the bulbs is hit and miss. Worked bout 85% of the time. The rest of the time the Echo said it couldn't communicate with the lights. You can also use the Philips Hue (Bluetooth) app. For the price, I really was not impressed with the functionality of them. Also purchased some LOHAS Smart LED bulbs (got 3 bulbs for the price of these 2) and those work great. The LOHAS are both Bluetooth and Wifi, with no hub needed at all. Cant really recommend the Philips as I don't want to purchase a hub. Will most likely return these as the LOHAS bulbs work way better.

Can anyone explain what you mean when you say you need a hub to connect to Alexa?

The hue hub directly controls the bulbs (one hue hub can control 50? bulbs). Alexa can install a “skill” (an app/program) that communicates with the hue hub. The end result: You say “alexa turn on bedroom light', Alexa passes the request to the hue hub, hub turns the light on, Alexa gets a reply that the request was f… see more The hue hub directly controls the bulbs (one hue hub can control 50? bulbs).

You can control the hue hub directly with an app, or you can use an apple or google smart device to do the same thing that alexa does.

Will this connect to Echo dot 3rd Generation without a hub?

    HERE IS HOW TO USE THESE LIGHTS WITH THE ECHO DOT 3rd VERSION

    I stayed up until 4:30 am trying to figure out how to work this new lightbulb with my new Echo Dot 3. First, you have to ignore the directions that came with the bulb. They were useless and misleading and one of the reasons I’ve been up half the night. No, you do not need a pricey Hue hub. You don’t need the google playstore or the Apple store to download an app. You don’t need to select ‘Hue’ from the Alexa Skills menu and you don’t need to sign up for a Hue account.

    All you do is set up your Echo Dot if not already done. You should probably wait while it connects to your other devices. Then screw in the lightbulb and turn on the lamp/light fixture. At this point, Alexa should say new light found, but it didn’t. I had to say ‘Alexa discover devices’ Alexa named the device ‘First Light’ Then I was able to say turn on first light, turn off first light, dim first light. There is a video on this page that tells you the exact same thing. This is the video to follow. I just wish there had been directions with this lightbulb that said how to hook it up with an Alexa device and I hadn’t wasted hours of my time.

    These are great, until your WiFi goes out...

    I would give these zero stars if possible. Initially, I was very happy with these. They were easy to set up using Alexa (no hub, no extra app) and worked perfectly. However, then our Xfinity had a planned outage that lasted several hours. With the WiFi out, I figured these would just function as normal lights but nope – every 30 seconds or so they’d flash. Then, when the WiFi finally came back, two of them (in same light fixture) are unresponsive. I’ve deleted and re-discovered them multiple times in Alexa app and even downloaded the Hue app thinking there must be a a way to reset them, but no luck there either. I’ve spent over an hour going back and forth deleting and re-discovering them in both apps and they keep showing up unresponsive. So basically I paid $25 for a pair of regular light bulbs because an uncontrollable WiFi outage rendered them useless. Cool. For the price, they should be resilient despite internet outages because let’s be honest, nobody’s internet works 24/7 365 days a year so it’s ridiculous that they won’t reset after this.

    Not worth the hassle

    Update: Downgrading from 2 stars to 1. Ordered replacements. Got everything connected and thought everything was good, was willing to chalk it up to bad luck with defective bulbs. Two weeks later, same problem. Suddenly stopped responding to the google home mini. I disconnected and reset everything (as the troubleshoot guides suggested) and now they can’t even be found again. Exactly the same as before except this time it took one extra week for them to stop working. Even if I can get the reconnect, I refuse to keeping going though this on a regular basis just to use.

    Original Review: Huge waste of money. Way too difficult to set up and then even after finally getting them set up, they stopped responding to my Google Home Mini after about a week. Disconnected them to try and reset, now they won’t connect again. Probably going to send them back. Way more trouble than they’re worth.

    That being said, the week they worked was pretty cool. Nice and bright at full blast but also dimmable, though the dimmest setting could be a a bit dimmer still in my opinion. I liked being able to control it with my voice and set the “gentle wake” mode that slowly increased the brightness in the morning before my alarm. If only they had worked for more than a week.

    AWorks with Alexa if you understand the app....easy!

    I have 2 for my outside garage, one for my porch and one for my living room. All 4 are paired with Alexa. I don’t understand why reviews state they can’t pair. Make sure you have 3rd generation and let your echo discover it. Make sure you understand Alexa app…that’s all you need….NO HUB!
    I have them set on routines to go on and off everyday. Works perfect.
