Was detected and installed in Smart life app however was not detected by Alexa with Smart Life Skill. In app also, against the bulb, did not show Third Party Control icons like Alexa, Google home etc. Looks like a bug. Have ordered replacement. Will update.
I had some confusion before ordering this device but went ahead anyway, and its almost perfect! Here are some tips if you have questions before buying:
1. It comes with an instruction booklet on how to set up. 2. You download an app called smart life from the play store on your android phone and sign up. Connect your android phone to your home wifi. Enter your wifi password on the app, switch the bulb on/off 3 times, it starts blinking and the app detects and connects to it. Once connected you can control the hue (colour), saturation, brightness; turn it on or off. It also has some moods which i found wuite boring. 2. On the alexa app on the phone, you add the smart home skill, sign in with your app credentials and the device appears in your list. You can control the brightness, switch it on off, change the colour with alexa voice commands.
The bulb itself is very bright and responsive. I had no issues pairing it at all (just make sure you follow the instructions).
The buld is fairly big though, much larger than a normal 15w led bulb. So if you are looking to fit it into a fixture, check the size to see if it will fit in first. The warm white and cool white colors are perfect. Alexa provides you with different warm white options, along with brightness control, you can go from bright white to soothing warm white without needing 2 different led lights, and without getting off the chair. You can also schedule it to automatically turn it on or off at a schedule.
