These are great prices but these bulbs lose connection all the time. It's way too frustrating so I avoid them like the plague. Also note these aren't wifi bulbs, they are ZigBee. Works with smart things, Hue, wink, etc..

If you have any bulbs at all on a manual switch, it screws with zigbee devices since the mesh network gets holes in it whenever power is cut off via a switch.

Stocked up on the target deal cyber Monday. About the same price but I had to buy six then. Mine never lose connection. And unlike the cree connected, I can actually connect them to my hue v2. Working extremely well with echo for a year and now homekit.

I have had that same connection problem but I think my issue is due the the little link device that came with the bulbs. It will not even pair up to the network now. I am switching to the full hub to replace it. I just wish there were wall switches that I could place in the room to control these lights. You can find smart switches that control "dumb" lights but not just a button wall interface for a networked bulb.

Yes, but they were selling Wink to Flextronics. Unfortunately, GE just stepped in and objected to the sale, claiming some of the IPs and designs should now belong to GE due to its reputation that was hurt by their partnership.


Everyone was hopeful that Wink would survive, but if GE really wants them to die, I don't think there's any hope...


But, we can hope for a local control firmware update if Wink engineers find out that they're going to be out of a job. If all else fails, the Zigbee devices will work with other controllers. I don't remember reading about any of the Wink branded Zigbee products being locked out of other controllers.

Thanks for the tip! That explains why my bulbs lose connection. Once in a while, someone will stroll through a room that uses Wink bulbs, forgets, and flips the switch. After that happens, I always lose connection to those bulbs and have to re-sync.

A combination of:would let you program buttons on the Tap to control individual lights or groups of lights when you don't have your phone, but if you have your phone, you can control each lightbulb remotely.



Or a combination of:
  • GE/Wink lightbulbs
  • Wink Hub
  • Wink Tapt or Lutron Caseta or GE Z-wave Switch etc.
would let you turn a gang of lightbulbs on/off with the switch, but you can control them individually using your phone.

It sounds like these work with the Hue hub. Can I control them with the Hue app? Want to double check before I pull the trigger on this deal.
