Love it, but...


First, I love this. It’s great. Im happy to have gotten it as a gift. A few things could be better. My base lantern does not play well with the app. Proximity is iffy. Light doesn’t dim when told. Color changes come on full brite, even if the previous color was dim. As for the app, I would love it if I could set an alarm and have a repeat option. It’s not convenient to have to reset it each day. And the timers should/could have a countdown function. Also one that could repeat daily. If you set it by a clock, it would be nice if it was that same time every night. Like a sleep setting. Of course, there’s always the chance that it does all these things already, and it is operator malfunction. The lamp feels pretty high tech!

Still buggy but much improved


Good hardware. Flickering fixed. New options like save custom settings.

The sunrise/sunset modes STILL don't work with any of my devices. I can't even access the options for because the app doesn't adjust to non-ridiculously sized phones. So disappointing!

Proximity is a little flakey.

App does not stay connected


When I go out of range of the blue tooth the app disconnects. When it tries to reconnect it hangs. I have to turn BT off then on to get it to work.

Makes the app just about worthless. The app is not very intuitive. Some functions are hard to find, otherwise.
