Updated: Homekit!


It works, and I never had any problems with it. I do like the selection of scenes but it feels like I should have much more from you or a community to choose from. Also, after using schedules for a while I hope for a feature to somehow turn on the lights when someone who comes in proximity of the home that has the app installed.

Other than that, keep rocking it with the lights and app. Keep it consistently updated with new stuff. Thanks! 4/5

Update: I have changed my 4/5 to 5/5. Just because of homekit, thank you! The best decision you have made, just wish it included the Z strip.. You came out with the Z strip upon mentioning homekit was in development. Still, you are constantly updating and keeping with the lights so props to you! Now I can quickly access lighting options if I need to and have the lights turn off and on according to location. Best update! Looking forward to more in the future.

How About You Make Your Current Lineup Work Before You Add More Lights You Won’t Support


I think the title sums up my thoughts. Customer support is nonexistent...I have 42 lights of varying generations...I have to spend about an hour a week on lights that just lose their memory. I have three new BR30’s that won’t pair at all...and I’ve power cycled them to no avail. I was told it’s my fault since I have older lights and newer lights. One problem, all generations that i own have issues. They don’t respond to any suggestions and beware on updating the app, I no longer update till I read the reviews to see what they screwed up, it usually takes several weeks for them to fix it. I imagine they don’t employ any app coders because that SDK they threw at the wall is about as worthless as Java on an iOS device. If it wasn’t for how much my kids love having dance parties with the whole house changing colors I would have dropped all of these lights at goodwill about a month ago.



Reading reviews on here really compelled me to write my own. As another reviewer has said, those complaining about the lights not working just aren’t taking the time to set them up properly and connect them to their cloud. Everything is very simple to use and the app provides clear instructions on how to set your lights up and customize them to your liking. I’ve been using a Z strip and regular lamp bulb in my bedroom for a couple of months now and i’m extremely happy! I love how easily I am able to change the color of my lights and I really like the themes that come preloaded. it’s very clever to allow then coloration to change slightly as you tap on the particular theme. Keep up the great work!!!
