What can I say? They are absolutely amazing in every way!
They work flawlessly on IOS and Android through their own LIFX app and are easily voice-controlled through Siri, Alexa and Google
They have totally transformed my home
Light, Lighting and Colour are such an integral part of our lives and once you experience just one colour changing bulb in their series with the multitude of colours and effects along with the ease of controlling them through your voice assistants there will be no looking back
They have totally enhanced my living environment is such a positive way
These ones were purchased for 2 x bedside table lamps and 1 x large floor standing feature lamp. They all had the smaller e14 fittings and at the moment until LiFX release e14 bulbs I just used their e27 mini colour 1000 with DiCuno e14 to e27 adapters (from Amazon) and they all worked perfectly
And Amazons prices for the singular and the pack of 4 I purchased were by far the best price I could find
Once again another Amazon 5 Star 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟 product! Great Price, Great Quality and Supersonic Delivery Speed!! 🕺👍☺️
Did find the initial setup somewhat difficult, i.e. they would sometimes fail to setup and you would have to reset them and try again. We also had one out of the 4 bulbs begin to malfunction after a few days, but LIFX was super easy to deal with and they sent a replacement no hassle.
The dimming and dusk settings are fantastic - exactly what is advertised. Also the colour and brightness can be set with google assistant.
Have not had them drop off the network and have worked flawlessly with google assistant. We do have a fairly good mesh setup, and the worst would be a slight delay in a command, but very tolerable. Phone app works fine too.
Be careful about the clearance you have for where you are installing the lights. These light are a little bigger than your standard globes, so if there's a cover it may not fit back on.
Had been looking for a while at smart lights and we're very happy with our LIFX.
For those trying to eliminate blue light to help with sleep problems it makes them worth a look compared to the competition that doesn't go much lower than incandescent ~2500k range.
Linked to Google Home flawlessly, and the schedule option in the LIFX app is great for bluer whites upon waking and redder as it gets closer to bedtime.
The only down side, which is true for almost all smart lights, is LIFX have no physical switches that place them in standby to work like a "dumb light switch" all, and all the cheaper after-market versions work via LIFX's cloud protocol rather than WiFi protocol, which means a noticeable lag between pressing the button and the light itself responding. This leads to the people you place the emulated "dumb" switches for (elderly parents etc) to keep pressing the buttons thinking they don't work.
TL;DR - if LIFX released a physical button similar to their major competitor's 4 way dimmer button that works locally rather than relying on the cloud, these would be five star best option hands down. Of note, the competitor with the good button doesn't have B22, so at the moment for Australian buyers there isn't really a hands down best option.
If you set it up correctly it works really well with Google Home, although it is mostly in terms of turning on and off. The functionality does not seem to be there yet to use Google Home to adjust the lights colour temperature.
My setup is that I have an Apple ecosystem with Google home. Using the Lifx app and Apple Home I can control the lights with ease on my Apple watch, iPhone and iPad.
Local WiFi connection gives you a much faster response but, working via the mobile network is pretty good too. For me this is relevant because I have much more available data on my phone than through my home ISP.

It is worth noting though (and this point has been made by another reviewer) that if you have other lights from Lifx as in the A19 1100 lumen multicolour lights (I have three now) then these do not do 3200k which in my view is a good middle point between warm and cold. I can only hope that this is a software fixable issue as matching these to my other Lifx coloured lights is not possible at that setting. It's not a massive issue for me but for some, that want to use the Day/Dusk feature with mixed lights will notice the jump between 3000k and 3500k.
One of my favourite things is the scheduling. I have a schedule set for my girlfriend where the light on her side of the bed comes on at its warmest setting the same time as her second 'Alarm Snooze Button press" at the dimmest level and then proceeds to dim up to 30% (all user definable) over 15mins. This is not too bright to ruin my morning and it helps her see when she gets out of bed. If you're are clever you can set a few consecutive schedules to change the colour from super warm to a more morning colour temperate. Something I would like to see implemented in to future version of the Lifx app's scheduling options (Start colour ---> End Colour).
All in all, a great little light that not only offers similar brightness to a standard filament 60watt, but uses a fraction of the energy and offers a better than expected kelvin range. The scheduling alone is kind of worth it.
I bought two of these a couple of weeks ago for £24.99 which I think is a little expensive compared to other options. The fact that they are now selling them for a penny under £30 means I would personally more seriously consider other options if you are just getting in to smart lights. That said, I don't think you can go too far wrong with these but for them to be more expensive than Philips hue bulbs of the same type seems odd planning. Their A19 bulbs is a different animal as it's brighter with better colours than Philips last efforts but i'm not sure this one sticks it's head up high enough for that extra hike in cost.
I did have some connection issues on my android phone, I found it really fiddly and it took ages to connect which was frustrating. I read a comment that it was easier on iOS and it is! I have an iPhone for work so I downloaded the app and used that to connect the lights and it was instant and really easy to do. When I went back into the app on my android it asked if I wanted to add new lights from the cloud and once done they were all connected.
I haven't had any connection issues, they've all stayed online and I can use them remotely (which does work as I can see from my home cameras).
You won't regret getting these!
After about a year, though, it started going wrong. Connectivity issues were everywhere and I couldn't get the automation to work (even though it had been working previously).
Instead of going through warrantee again and paying to return it, I just went and bought a TP-link bulb - It worked flawlessly.
This bulb isn't worth the hassle it takes to make it work, and even once you get it running it probably won't stay that way.
Cons: The one I have goes non-responsive every few days and has to be switched off an on at the wall to reset it. Not the end of the world, but annoying when you're tucked up in bed and trying to control it. The dimming seems to be linked to power rather than light output, and so there's little discernible difference in brightness between 100% and 90%, but a huge difference between 1% and 10%. I would prefer the 100% scale to give more flexibility at lower brightnesses, especially since it is a little too bright for a nightlight when set to 1% brightness.
Additional: I bought a second one of these slightly cheaper, as an Amazon return. It arrived in as new condition, but it had to be reset into pairing mode again (presumably because the previous owner had paired it to their Wi-Fi.) This isn't tricky: just turn the wall switch off and on, slowly, 5 times, and the bulb will go into setup mode so that it can be discovered by the LIFX app. But I did have to Google to discover this, so maybe adding this here will save someone else the trouble.
I was a little concerned that this bulb would not be bright enough to light up my sitting room, which is about 10 x 12', but it is more than bright enough. Even with the winter weather and dark skies I haven't had it on a hundred percent brightness. From reading reviews I expected it would take some time to set up but I set it up in minutes for Alexa. Minutes later I had it connected to my iPhone home kit.
I now have an Alexa routine for bedtime that switches everything off in my sitting room. I have MS so I don't always feel like getting up to switch the light on or off. Now I can just ask Siri - thanks to the iPhone integration. And on top of that I can set the brightness according to the brightness outside.
I haven't had any issues with connection that are to do with the bulb itself. The first issue I had was that my voice commands stopped working but that was because my husband had switched the light off at the wall!! The socket that the bulb is in has always been a bit loose so I lost connection one day because of that. The bulb itself is very stable and responsive.
I am using a smart plug to control my bedroom lamp but I will definitely get another of these bulbs for that lamp. I will find another use for the plug I'm sure. I wondered whether I should have bought the day to dusk version but I certainly don't need it for my sitting room but might consider it for my bedroom lamp.
I plugged this lightbulb in and downloaded the app. Simple enough thus far. I then loaded in the app to connect up the bulb - it then loops between sending wifi credentials to the bulb and connecting to the bulb endlessly.
After extensive googling between forums, reddit and on their help page - nothing seems to help. Suggestions that people on Android based devices may have problems is laughable - I mean come on.
I'm just disappointed really - by the setup and execution because I thought I could have a quality smart light but now it looks like I have to join the Philips Hue herd.
The fact that the Lifx bulbs last so much longer than conventional bulbs and also consume far less power is a no brainier really, and justifies the initial cost of purchasing the bulbs. Trust me, gives these a go, they are absolutely superb.
I must like these, as I have just added to the two I purchased some time ago. I use them to replace standard 60W UK bayonet bulbs.
Relatively easy set-up. Occasionally they don't act as expected, but a quick update (if there is one), usually fixes any issues, or a reset.
I love the fact that you can set the light level. I set my hall light to 30% overnight, and this is plenty bright enough for my small hallway. I set my double bedroom at 75% and rarely adjust it.
That said. These are lovely bulbs which I have bought many of (over ten) and will contrite to buy as they can offer a lovely (and bright enough) glow.
If you need a bright over head light then go for one of their brighter and more expensive RGB bulbs which are noticeably brighter but if you’re looking for replacement led bulbs for side lights then these are fantastic. They respond to the app very quickly and work well with Alexa as well. Away from home scheduling and the ability to program them to turn on and off at certain times of day (dimming up and down over time) make then worth the price tag anyways so it’sa no brainier. Add to that, you don’t need a hub so I can’t find any further reason not to replace every side light in your house with these.
You install them via the LIFX app which is able to download updates and pair with your account. Once you have installed them on your LIFX account you can start to integrate with other smart home services such as Homekit, Siri and Alexa.
I have fffound the set up process to be slightly less reliable that I would have hoped. At times it will say pairing failed, or have to reinstall the entire lightbulb. This wouldn't be such an issue if i only had to do it once, but unfortunately at times, you will have to reinstall and reset the whole thing. I assume this is because of basic network connectivity issues that require you to manually reset the whole lightbulb system. In particular sometimes i use these bulbs as regular lights and by turning the switch off and then on again, it disconnects from the wifi and no longer operates as a smart light bulb at all.
The homekit setup could also be a bit easier - you have to remember the code for each lightbulb and let's face it- it's very easy to forget or lose the homekit code associated with that specific lightbulb.
Otherwise, the lights are bright and are customisable in terms of the colour spectrum (from seedy red to hospital white. You can also set the brightness and it is quite variable in the sense than you can go from 0-100% in 1% increments.
I have used the night and day function where it wakes you up by slowly increasing light of the bulbs. I found this to be quite gimicky and turned it off after trying it out a few times.
Overall, if the setup process was a bit easier, It would get 4 or even 5 stars from me, but because of the frequent need to reset and resetup, its' becoming a little bit of a pain. It doesn't happen to all my bulbs, so i sometimes do wonder if it is just a specific bulb i have that is a bit funky. Integration with other devices is good and i can ask my virtual assistants to turn on and off and set the brightness via voice. Its a good concept and i do think we're getting there, but a few things to work on from LIFX.
In un paio di giorni mi sono già completamente abituato (viziato) da alexa. Entro in casa e dico "Alexa accendi la luce in salotto" e magicamente la luce si accende. ho in programma di sostituire tutte le lampadine di casa con queste.
Ribadisco che il servizio di consegna di Amazon è impeccabile, come sempre, la merce è arrivata prima del previsto anche se siamo in periodo pre-natalizio.
Tried using my Wife's phone instead, and this time it worked first time. Yay. But what if I didn't have another device to try it from? I understand it's hard to develop for the Android eco system with hundreds of Android versions and thousands of handsets, but why isn't there a fall back mode where the bulb acts as an AP and I can connect, enter the bulbs IP in a web browser, and manually enter the Wifi details? That way it's totally device agnostic.
Then there's the app. It looks like it was thrown together in an afternoon. Text is clipping off the edge of my phone screen. Some of the text is over lapping. I can't seem to hide the "integrations" section which is too big and too busy for something you presumably use a couple of times and then never touch again.
Overall I'm incredibly disappointed with the experience. The hardware itself is great, bright, vivid colours, great whites, far better than the Tradfri bulb it's replacing, but getting the thing set up and the poor app experience has left a sour taste in my mouth. If I'd paid £45 for the bulb I'd have been livid.
