Cost Effective, Good Light Quality, Some Bulb Setup Issues
I bought the starter kits and then several bulb packs for both the Sengled and Philips Hue systems, so I can compare them here. Overall, both are pretty easy to set up, and both have good bulb quality and, once set up, the bulbs function well with both Google Assistant and Alexa. Overall, have to say I like the Philips system a bit better overall, due to its easier bulb setup and fewer glitches. The Philips system however is more expensive and I cannot see any difference in light quality between the Sengled and Philips bulbs – and if anything, the Sengled bulbs have a warmer cast I like better.
A few comparisons:
1. App – Philips Hue’s app is slicker and a bit more intuitive. The Sengled app works fine but some of its functions like changing a room associated with a bulb are awkward to use and not easily found.
2. Bulb Setup – Hue is MUCH better, Philips Hue setup automatically finds the bulbs after the screw them into the fixture and turn them on. With the Sengled, you have to scan a QR code before you can set up the bulb, then turn it on, and then click OK.
3. Both hubs/bridges are small and easily set up, you can attach them to your network via ethernet or wirelessly. They don’t necessarily have to be close to the bulbs, as I read the bulbs form a mesh network with each other and they transmit signals to one another. Only the hub will show up on your network as a device.
4. Bulb quality is excellent for both. I bought about a dozen bulbs of each, and all work flawlessly. The Sengled A19 bulbs actually have a warmth I prefer over Hue’s.
5. Sengled claims they plant a tree on the continent of your choice for each bulb you buy and set up. It prompts you for the desired continent and lets you add your name, once you set up a bulb, and tracks your total trees. I really like this concept and hope they actually follow through with this this.
6. Firmware updates happen automatically but can take several hours for several bulbs. Philips’ firmware updates seem much faster than Sengled’s.
7. Both bridges are only compatible with their own brand of bulbs, but Sengled bulbs are compatible with other hubs such as Echo Plus, Samsung Smart Things and Wink, whereas Hue bulbs must use a Hue bridge.
8. Sengled bulbs in the STARTER kit are pre-paired with the included bridge and do not need to be set up other than to be named, etc. You will have to set up future bulb purchases with the QR code which is where I had some issues.
I had some failures with the second four-pack of Sengled bulbs where installation failed, and I had to remove the bulbs from the fixtures and start over. After several tries and a move to different lamps, they finally installed there, but it took a while. My house is small and none of these bulbs is far from another and none is far from the hub. I put Philips bulbs in the same lamps where the Sengled bulbs would not install, and they installed immediately in the Hue app with no issue. Remember to ensure your Sengled bulb is working before you before you replace the light’s cover, as you’ll have to remove it to scan the tiny QR code printed on the bulb’s base if you need to start installation again.
I did learn how to factory reset a bulb, because of my issues – flick it on and off with a switch very quickly ten times – the light will then blink five times indicating the bulb has been reset.
Overall a good system, but the installation issues and the required QR code scanning lead me to take off a star. The Sengled system is more cost effective however than the Philips Hue, whose bulbs are quite expensive.09/29/2022Verified Purchase
Not as bright as expected
I really appreciate the Sengled is making a Zigbee BR30 bulb. I’d be even more appreciative if they made a BR40 or PAR38 version of the bulb. The bulb paired quickly with a Tasmota flashed Sonoff Zigbee Bridge and it wasn’t too difficult to reset and pair with a different bridge.
The only way this bulb meets advertised lumens is when set to a medium white color temperature (raw CT value about 354 — it’s the new bulb default so they know). Both cool white and warm white is significantly dimmer.
Where this bulb really fails is in color mode. Secondary colors are very dim and primary colors (red, green and blue) are even dimmer. I purchased these to accent wash an off-white wall from ceiling cans. The only way you can see the colors is to turn off or severely dim all other room lights. When set to medium white, at full brightness, these bulbs do perform as expected and you can see the light wash the wall.
Recommendation: Don’t buy these bulbs unless they will be the only light source in the room or you only want to use them as a Zigbee dimmable medium white bulb.
I believe there is a huge market for locally controlled, bright LED color floodlight/spotlight bulbs but have yet to find any. I will not purchase cloud controlled WiFi bulbs and that is why I had such high hope for these Zigbee bulbs.06/02/2022Verified Purchase
Sengled is generally good, however.....
We have many Sengled smart bulbs in our home and they work great, so when needing color floods for a home theater to replace Kasa’s color bulbs (they do not offer flood for whatever reason – I wish they did!), this was a no brainer. Sadly, it was not an easy process. While Sengled bulbs will connect directly to Alexa without the need of another app (which is, usually, great), these flood lights offer a choice of colors, which Alexa limits to basic hues. You want Blue? Sure, Alexa will do that. You want blue off purple, no can do. Alexa does not offer the color wheel many apps will. Amazing that the Amazon devices division has not figured this out! So, I thought, ‘No problem, I will install the Sengled app just for these two bulbs, I am sure the Sengled app will have the color wheel. Problem solved.’ No so fast.
The Sengled app is clunky, so I am more than grateful I do not need it for any of the other Sengled bulbs. Further, connecting your Sengled bulb to their app is next to impossible, so much so I finally gave up and used Alexa to set the limited color. I guess Sengled thinks that if you have Alexa you do not need their app. I figured I’d live with it. There are more important things in life than to obsess about a specific bulb color to match the rest of the lighting in the space. And I lived with it for about 8 months. Last week, out of the blue (and in mid-movie), one of the bulbs decided to turn on all by itself. And no matter what, it would not go off with Alexa. I ended up manually turning the bulb until it went off. Not ideal- especially when one has guests watching the movie with you.
I figured it was a one time thing. Sometimes, if the power flickers, smart bulbs will go on at random. Even though I had not noticed the power flickering, it may have. Fast forward a few days, again it went on by itself. And then, yesterday, I saw the light had, once again, gone on without any of us being down there. Who nows how long it had been on. Clearly, I need a replacement…… I am looking at other brands now, ones that I can use a better app to set the colors and, hopefully, will stay off when I want them off.
As an aside, the color brightness is also not too great, but that seems to be the case with many smart color bulbs.
I am not saying you will have the same problem. As I said, I have many other Sengled smart bulbs and Kasa (TP Link) bulbs and generally all work perfectly. This one may be an odd duck.05/21/2022Verified Purchase
