    Saw these got discounted at my local Coles last week. I'm pretty sure it's not nationwide though. Store specific

    aaahh man I would buy 50 of these at that price. Why doesn't my coles have it.. NNNNOOOO!!!!!

    •  

      Have you checked?

      •  

        Yea wanted to buy 1 about 2 days ago and they didn't have in stock. I'm checking the online store now and can't see any (not sure if they should be listed there..)

        Will go check in store in a few minutes

        •  

          My fingers are crossed for you. Also for me coz if you report back good things I'll go check too!!

          •  

            @MBix: Ok coles VIC->Berwick doesn't have any stock

            •  

              @RenVilo: Interesting! Wonder if they sold out due to great price or just didn’t have any

            •  

              @RenVilo: Coles CC or ER? I was gonna pop out on a venture rn.

    Amazing price.

    9W = 800 lumens, 2700k (warm) / 4000k (cold) on these to save everyone a Google.

      Was looking exactly for this. 800Lumens is quite bright!

    These are also good for flashing with ESPHome/Tasmota. I'd buy a ton of these if they were available in VIC for that price.

    •  

      Make sure the model numbers are the same.

      The Woolies ones flash fine but the pinouts are wrong. Last time I checked anyway!

      •  

        Yep, as far as I can tell, there are two categories of these Mirabella smart bulbs - the ones in the plastic packs, and the ones in the cardboard boxes. The Tasmota repository - https://templates.blakadder.com/bulb.html - just recently added a template for the RGB-colour ones in the cardboard boxes, but still no templates for the white cardboard box version (the one in this deal).

  •  

    These aren't listed online right? Just trying to check stock locally but can't find them.

      I can't see them online

    Just to note, these bulbs can be paired with the SmartLife app instead of the Mirabella one to give IFTTT support. However SmartLife have just announced they are pulling the pin on IFTTT.

    •  

      Sigh… disappointing on SmartLife and IFTTT news. I've tried Brilliant Smart app which is a replica of SmartLife, I wonder if Brilliant Smart app will continue to support IFTTT?

      •  

        I really hope so, but they all use the Tuya/SmartLife platform so there's a strong possibility Brilliant may go down the same path.

    •  

      I just control mine with the Mirrabella Alexa skill and the Mirrabella app. Works a treat. Love smart lights that don't need a hub.

      •  

        Sure you can still do that, but IFTTT allows you to do a lot more ie flash your Genio bedside lamp red if your Ring camera detects motion, flash it blue if your water leak sensor detects water etc.

        BTW using wifi devices with no hub is ok if your starting out and don't have many devices. But it's just no comparison to running a hub and local Zigbee/Z-Wave devices and automations.

        •  

          I hated my Phillips Hub. Everything I did required me to get up and push the darn button on it. I lost so many calories. Cost me a fortune in snacks to make them back up!

          So I ditched Phillips and have enjoyed not getting up since using Mirabella.

          •  

            @BargainBadger: What was all the button pushing for? I've got my hub maxed out with around 60 lights, and a ton of motion sensors and 4 button switches and cant remember the last time i had to push the button.

            Nothing wrong with the Mirabella's especially at this price snap them up, the ones i bought when they were first released still work. But there's far too many downsides and things they cant do for me.

            BTW i recall a few third party Hue apps allow you to push the hub button via in the app.

    Are these worth pre-buying even if I have no Smart Home/Wi-Fi setup at home? Not to mention most of my house are downlights.

    Am I better off saving my pennies and just buying whatever smart globes are "current" at the time if I ever do any smart home stuff?

    • +2 votes

      Depends how geeky you wanna get. If you're gonna go down the Home Assistant/flashing route for local control of these globes, I'd pull the trigger. We don't know how long we'll be able to use the current flashing tools on these bulbs, as Tuya might patch it and render the current tool useless.

      If you're just gonna use the stock standard cloud implementation via the smartphone app, I'd wait, mostly because who knows how long Tuya will be around for.

      This should probably give you an idea of which route you should take.

    Are these worth buying even at $5? These reviews are making me think twice.

      mate each bulb is only $5

      Im using 3 of these and they have been great. Very easy. Though sometimes rarely they start flashing when we turn them on as we generally have them switched off at the wall, might confuse them sometimes.

      Might need to read up on the flashing of the bulbs for local app use, rather than cloud.

      • +1 vote

        Start by reading up on Tuya-convert to flash Tasmota or ESPHome onto them. There's a bit of a learning curve, but it's worth it for proper home automation.

    •  

      maybe that's why discount applied

    •  

      I've got 4 at home. The standard 9w is nothing to rave about but I've got a 15w in the living and it's solid. I've also got a few Phillips Hue and Yeelights and I can't say it was any harder to install than those. Also got the arlec smart power boards connected thriygh the same app

      It is worth it even at $15 sold at Kmart. Big W has them at $20. With these globes, you don't need to worry about dang kids forgetting to turn the lights off. The smart setting is very flexible, you can do stuff like set the lights to turn on at sunset or turn off at sunrise. I've even paired the globes with PIR sensor and door sensor to turn lights on/off automatically.

      •  

        I am interested to know more about the PIR setup with these light bulbs. Are you able to give more details kindly?
        Currently making do with the yeelight sensor lights. I do have some PIRs from the mijia smart home pack.

        • +1 vote

          I am using Smart Life app with the PIR sensor and globes. Do note that there is a delay of about 5 secs from PIR sensor activation to the time the globe turns on. Also be aware that Smart Life app will cease supporting IFTTT soon. I don't know how it will affect this PIR setup.

          It needs to be a standalone smart PIR sensor so your mijia ones won't work with Smart Life. I bought the PIR sensor from eBay specifically the one that is square shaped which uses AAA batteries. It has been a hit and miss, I bought 2 sensors from 2 different sellers, one was not working. Weird issue of not being able to add the faulty unit in Smart Life. With the sensor and globe added in Smart Life, simply create Automation rule that if PIR sensor detects someone, Globe A will switch on. Cool thing about the PIR sensor is that you can turn on notification so that you receive a message on your phone when the sensor detects someone. I'm pretty happy with the sensitivity of the PIR sensor, minimal false alarms.

    •  

      I've got 2 of the RGB ones and I've been using them for months. I can't fault them.

  •  

    I've got a fair few of these that I bought at $15/unit. Several of them will lose their configuration once a week and just sit there flashing until I open the app and attempt a setup again.

    There was people that have flashed custom firmware on them which fixes these issues and lets them be controlled using MQTT but I haven't gotten to that stage yet.

    Definitely worth it for $5/unit.

    •  

      I find this happens with my $20 Yeelights also.

  •  

    Worth it to check the colour ones too as i picked my 3 up at $2ea ages ago

    •  

      that was ages ago though, don’t think that will still be around.

      •  

        True, though now at 5 for some, so may be worth checking what the colour varients are going for.

  •  

    Have a few of these around. Great bulbs but the genio app is a hit-or-miss on Android. Mostly works but requires some ongoing patience.

    Also, the cool white isn't really "cool". 4000k here vs 6500k normally.

    I would invest on something better if I truly wanted a smart home solution. But for individual rooms this is fine.

    •  

      I accidentally bought the cool white and found it was just too white, I felt like I was standing in a 7 Eleven. So I exchanged it for the warm white and it's much nicer on the eyes.
      I think cool white is fine for commercial premises or outside but not indoors. Just my opinion.

      •  

        You mean you have warm white in your bathrooms and kitchen too?

        Cool white is perfect for productivity, I have them in the study as well. Daylight = alert, warm = relax. I have lamps for when I want to dim these areas (other than colour adjustable smart bulbs).

        Actually I prefer the colour temp of these bulbs (4000k) compared to others in the 6500k range, after doing some experimenting with controllable bulbs. It very much depends on your windows and wall colours too, if you have very off white / cream walls then warm bulbs can be too "yellow".

        To each their own!

  •  

    Really great price, I've bought a bunch with the usual pricing from Big W/Kmart (works a treat with Echo). At this price I would hoard them! I wonder if Coles would price match themselves? :D

  •  

    Damn, I don't really wanna make my way all the way there just for a lightbulb. I wonder if Chatswood would have it

    Last three bulbs(Warm White)left in Wynyard,NSW

    No luck at Coles Toombul (QLD)

      Stock or price?

      •  

        Price

    •  

      Be sure to check around the store. At my local Coles, I found them near the ice-cream/frozen food section and not at the usual shelf for electrical/globes.

      •  

        Same location at Toombul but $20 (checked at register)

      •  

        was this in QLD

          Nope, WA.

    Any luck in Vic? stuck at work

    Is it just me or is anyone else frustrated to see that Gooey Cookie Crumble packet shoved behind the globes?

    GO and check your local Coles. Mine has it as $0.99 clearance. Picked up the last 2 bayonets, about 8 Edison screws left.

    •  

      99 cents! Wow … where is this out of interest. What a price

        There's various other non-smart LED globes too for around $0.99.

        •  

          Been to 3 Coles near me SOR Perth but no luck all showing $20.

          •  

            @cray: Coles website has these Smart globes as $20. Of the 2 boxes I bought, one has its tamper seal broken. Maybe that's the reason why it is on clearance in the first place.

            Be sure to check the clearance shelf. Found it close to ice cream/frozen food section and not at the regular shelf for electrical/globes.

            •  

              @trex: not on coles website?

              •  

                @BargainGhost: $0.99 is the clearance price. YMMV as stock and price depends on your local Coles. My encounter was $0.99 per photo but other users above have reported $2 and $5. Regular price is $20.

    I read and thought "Wynyard doesn't have a Coles", then realised that its Wynyard NSW and not Tasmania. 😂
