Meet the C by GE app—rebuilt for the speed of life. Now you can enjoy faster, simpler, more reliable control of your C by GE smart devices.
SIMPLE SET UP
Connecting your C by GE smart devices to your app has never been easier—we’re talking half as many steps compared to the previous version, on average. Plus, there’s no hub required, so you can simply connect and control.
The C by GE app works with voice assistants like the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH THE C BY GE APP:
• Turn lights on/off, dim/brighten, or adjust color setting with a single tap
• Create preset or custom lighting scenes (e.g., Movie Night, Dinner for Two, Homework Time, etc.)
• Group multiple devices and control them with one touch
• Set automations for scheduling lighting
• Share control with family, friends, or roommates
C BY GE APP GIVES YOU CONTROL OF:
C-LIFE: Our LED smart bulb that gives you more control of perfect everyday light—with instant dimming and brightening, preset scenes, and more. Perfect for every room, all day long.
C-SLEEP: Our smart LED bulb with 3 color settings (Vibrant for the AM, Active for the day, and Calm for the PM) that support your sleep/wake cycle. It’s perfect for bedrooms, bathrooms, or any room in the house. Smart dreams…
SOL: With the features and functionality of Amazon Alexa, our all-in-one smart lamp gives you voice control of its 5 unique light settings (including light that supports your sleep/wake cycle), clock and timer functions, play music, and much more.
C-REACH: Our hub that enables voice compatibility with a voice assistant device and out-of-home control of your C by GE smart devices.

App updates ruined the product.
Before multiple poorly thought out app updates this was an amazing product. I used it to come on gently in the morning to ease waking. I LOVED the product. I programmed it to come on dim at 6 a.m. and gradually get brighter over 5 minutes. At 7:45 it was programmed to go off again. The app interface was nice, I could choose between a black or white background. The black was really nice because it wasn’t super bright if you used the app in the evening.
Removing the background option was the first bad update. Each update got progressively worse. After 5 updates I can no longer schedule a shut off time which was important to me. The recent update is also very slow, and when you attempt to change the brightness level the screen will flip by mistake. The worst part is they didn’t make the bad changes until I had used the product for over a year- so I now can’t return them. It never in a million years occurred to me that I could spend so much for a product that worked, only to have it later be intentionally dismantled by the manufacturer. Very discouraging and probably will affect my choosing GE products in the future.

App and interface garbage
The bulbs ( I own and use 10 in my home) are great and work with google home perfectly; however, to use these bulbs to their fullest potential you need the bulbs to be setup through the C by GE app. Now the C by GE was ok ( before all these trash update) but when the bulbs are setup through the app and not google home there is no way to control them thru google home commands, you must use the C by GE app to operate the bulbs . So my problem is that a bulb built to work with google home will work with voice commands only when setup thru google home??? I have TP -link devices that are setup thru the Kasa app and still have full google home control also! What a surprise, a developer selling ( and fully functional) there product as intended! So what the funk is wrong with a device built for google home and can’t use the full function of the product when setup thru GH?? This should have been working from day one on a product that was built for google home. So to sum up... bulbs are good, C by GE app and it’s integration with google home is funking absolute shot trash!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
App crashes when editing automation.
The app crashes when I try to edit or view existing automations, so I really hope the ones I had set up prior to the update will still work.
I’m excited about this new update because it means things will probably get better eventually, but it’s less usable than it was before the redesign... I just want to be able to quickly change the color and intensity of my bulbs, why do I have to go through three or four screens to do that? Lack of widget is also annoying.
I have been using a C Sleep for over a year, and it’s nice when it works, but the poor quality of the app makes it very frustrating sometimes: sharing still doesn’t work, it has trouble finding the bulb when the app has been closed and reopened, turning off the bulb from the wall switch means that it won’t follow its schedule it was on when the change was supposed to happen and will have to be manually changed when it’s turned back on again...
