Performance improvements and stability enhancements, including updated support for iOS 10.
I want to love this but...
There are a lot of oversights that make it considerably less useful. I love that it will wake me up to a sunrise but what if I don't want my bedroom to look like part of a red light district at 5:30am? What if I want the light to slowly but surely get brighter? Why can't I make my own wake up scene? Same with the gradual dim sleep timer– this would be fantastic EXCEPT that it doesn't dim from the level of brightness my bulbs are set at. Nothing impedes winding down for the night like having my 20-50% brightness suddenly double just so it can gradually dim (often at a weird rate, depending on the time you put in. Haven't figured it out all the way because its not that useful as-is). I wish I could control these from multiple iOS devices, I did find a workaround by putting a Link in the rooms that I have bulbs in (so essentially, I'm back to having a switch/tiny remote.. Sigh). Also, why do I have to update all bulbs? Why can't I pick and choose based on which ones I'm near?
Update: I wrote this review a year ago. Nothing has been fixed. Let's talk about switching scenes: if I go from one scene to the next, suddenly it's at full brightness? Regardless of what my bulbs were at before?
Seriously, I bought these bulbs (only 3 of the 4 still work, btw) so that I could control the level and temperature of light based on how awake or focused I needed to be and it's counter-productive at this point. I'm switching to Phillips Hue.
I Love The Lights But Change The Name
I absolutely enjoy waking up to this. The gradual increment in light has been a game changer for my morning struggle hehe. Also, I like the fact that I can turn on the lights without having to walk to the switch. And that it features a diversity of colors. I just can't stand the fact that they called the lights "Lonely Lights" ! Even though each bolt can be renamed and each room can be called whatever I want. That "Lonely Lights" tab can't be replaced !! Seriously, why would they do that to themselves ? Lonely Lights is such an unattractive name ... how about Lovely Lights instead ?
After receiving the Bolt for Christmas I was at first disappointed at the fact I was given a "smart lightbulb". But after getting this thing plugged in and synced to my phone I wish I could have more. I must have gotten lucky with a good bulb and app connection because after reading all of the other reviews I haven't experienced any of the issues people are talking about. My bulb has never lost connection unless I made the mistake of going and flipping the light switch instead of using the app. So far, so good with the current version of the app.
