To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Les lumières ont eut du mal à se connecter au wifi de la maison. L'application n'est pas toujours facile à naviguer. Dès son installation, il y avait des mises à jour à faire avec les ampoules. Avant les mises à jour, les lumières se déconnectaient dans arrêt, mais cela ne se reproduit plus depuis que tout est mis à jour. Seulement 6 effets de lumière sont offertes, ce seraient apprécié d'en avoir plus.
These builds work great for me. I have 10 coloured, and 1 plain white Sengled smart bulbs in my house. I’m not sure what these other people are complaining about, They don’t buzz, they don’t turn on randomly on their own and they don’t lose connection. Maybe Alexa is your problem, because they work consistently with Google. I recommend them because they simply work when I need them to.
Don't buy these...buy the Sylvania LED instead. These bulbs won't stay connected to wifi, and the lag with Alexa controlling them is touch and go. I'm constantly having to go back and rejoin the bulbs to my wifi and to Alexa control. Not worth the hassle. Buy THESE instead: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B088G2B48D/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Much better, more reliable, and faster.
I bought these as a superior product to all the Tuya clones as I've been told Sengled is one of the best brands you can get. The Tuya bulbs are cheap and may not last, but they do work. These bulbs, not so much. First, when set to any "white" color that isn't warm white, the bulb will pulse or flicker - the brightness drops by a few percentage. It's enough to drive you crazy. Warm white is pretty steady, as are any of the color variants. Secondly, the bulb turns itself on at random, almost on a nightly basis. Again, none of my other bulbs do that. There are no routines or anything else configured to do that. There's also no setting I can see that says "do no turn back on if losing wifi connection" if that is what's happening (again the app is very limited, no logging, so can't tell). I ended up returning these.
I don’t understand how the rating for these is so high. Many of the users are correct in that these bulbs are EXTREMELY difficult to activate. I would avoid these WiFi connective bulbs and stick with the Bluetooth and here’s why: When I bought my first two Echo dots they came with Sengled light bulbs which I don’t remember having ANY trouble activating. Flash forward to over a year later and a new house, I wanted more Alexa-commanded bulbs. I saw these and thought they were the same as what I already had. WRONG! Oh my gosh it was SUCH a hassle! They aren’t initially detected by the Alexa App so I had to sign up for a Sengled account but even THAT account wouldn’t detect the bulb. I can’t even remember the exact sequence that allowed me to activate the first bulb, but eventually I ended up using Alexa App which finally connected to the Sengled App and activated the 1st bulb.
Awesome! So I tried to replicate that process for the 2nd bulb but no dice! Unlike the first bulb, the SECOND bulb led me to connecting my Wifi to some Sengled WiFi account and then still it didn’t connect. I kept going in and out of Sengled App and Alexa App, turning the bulb off and on and I still don’t recall EXACTLY which steps allowed the 2nd bulb to connect. Sadly I have TWO more bulbs to activate. Though not an expert, I’m also no stranger to technology. So I personally would not recommend these to anyone who isn’t extremely proficient with technology. Based on my experience with my first two bulbs compared to these new bulbs I would say buy the BLUETOOTH version instead of the Wifi version. These bulbs eventually connect and work, though I have yet to actually put them to normal use. And I don’t know if the fact these are WiFi if they will affect the WiFi connectivity to other devices in my home. This might be one of those things that requires a hub. Again, based on this experience, stick to BLUETOOTH bulbs.
Of all of the smart devices I own (8 Echo devices, 5 smart lamps, 2-dozen smart receptacles/switches, about a dozen bulbs, ring accessories and cameras, thermostat, garage doors, TV's. Yes I'm that integrated), these are the worst bulbs I've ever purchased. I bought 2 packs due to their high rating. I'm batting 0/4 for the first set. I'm not even going to try the second set.
I tried 3 different light fixtures from canister lights to stand-up lamps to regular ceiling fan fixtures.
I screw them in and they turn on after flashing their rainbow colors. I attempt to connect them to the app and they won't. They're detected by the app and the phone via a wifi connection. I go through the wifi PW setting and integration and they do nothing. I go through this process about 2 dozen times,, even resetting the device with a 5x pull of the switch, nothing.. I've got a 3-satellite mesh system with continuous connection in the house. Sadly I did my due diligence and reset everything just to connect these horrible bulbs.
Nothing changed. Everything else connected back up just fine minus these Sengled brand smart bulbs. Each time, they went through their paces, flashed, worked with the switch but won't connect to the app (yes I Uninstalled and reinstalled it the app despite it being the first time I've installed/used this particular app.
I went as far as to setup a test bench with a spare router(I'm in IT by profession). And still could not get these bulbs to connect to the app. I've tried 4 so far with the same results. I've tried all band, 2.4Ghz as my main for all smart devices. 4 separate bulbs and 3 separate fixture types. I plug another brand in (Kasa, VeSync and Smart Home) and they sync and configure with no issues.
I'm returning these for a full refund, sad because had they worked, I was on the market for another 20 for our chandelier style fixtures.
Update: Sengled support confirms firmware compatibility issues with Netgear WiFi equipment. If you're running anything Netgear Nighthawk, Orbi or other, STAY AWAY FROM SENGLED.
