These bulbs are surprisingly cheap, but when used with a Thread ecosystem they are amazingly fast and reliable. Use with a HomePod Mini to see what I mean!
Colours are fairly decent and the white light setting is very bright indeed.
I have been looking for reasonably priced smart lighting for a while now. But After watching iJustine’s review of these and getting a HomePod mini which had Thread. I bought 2x E27 to give them a go. Needless to say I’m over the moon with how good these are. Easy to setup, works perfectly and are bright.
I highly recommend. I’ll be buying more for sure.
I purchased 3 Essentials A19 to replace some ageing Philips Hue bulbs and I am suitably impressed with the quality & performance of the new bulbs, especially over Thread connectivity. Thread really brings these bulbs to life almost instantaneously with far less than half a second between triggering the bulb & it turning on. Setup & connectivity was seamless. The whites are bright & accurate. The colours can be a bit dim & understated but produce a nice colour accent to the room instead of saturating it in the chosen colour. I will definitely be expanding on my Nanoleaf range based on my experiences with the Essentials range.
Great lights, bright, accurate colours, great design! Slow with Bluetooth, but that’s expected. The thread integration is amazing! Way faster than hue or any others I’ve used in the past. Overall very happy!
I purchased this to test Thread with Apple HomeKit setup. These are amazing and responsive and I can’t wait to get some Shapes in the mix too!
