Had these for about a year, they've been reliable so far, and relatively easy to set up. They're not terribly bright when in colour mode, but don't know how that compares with other brands.
Do people really use such bulbs for RGB? Can this do warm white like the traditional?
I don't use this model but do have other bulbs that are connect to my home automation hub and are set to change the white colour temperature to mimic the circadian rhythm.
I have never found a use for the RGB lights however on their own.
Yeah the W stands for white. You may be disappointed in the brightness however. 10W isn't much by the time it gets through the diffuser.
The only time I ever use the RGB is during parties to entertain the kids somewhat. I had the bright idea to get some yeelights for my study so I could change the white temperature for work mode and evening mode, and automate them coming on when I enter the room and turn off 30 mins after leaving. I just left them on the brightest cool mode and was disappointed in the brightness. Anyhow two of them failed and I just got some 1400 lumen cool white philips globes from Amazon and just went back to switching them on/off with the wall switch.
Initially, absolutely no use.
But what I done recently is that my dining room light is set to blue all night, plus another lamp, which is just enough light to get around in when I get up to get the baby. Even the dimmest white setting is a bit jarring on the kid in the middle of the night, the blue is not too bad.
I Know these can be dimmed through the app, but how are they with using it on a dimmable light Switch?
They are not dimmable via a standard wall switch dimmer. If you try they will just turn off.
Any idea if these are IFTTT compatible?
