I had six or these on my Smartthings hub for about a month and I strongly recommend AGAINST them. They caused horrible Zigbee instability across the entire network.

I've since switched to Hubitat, but if you look at threads about Zigbee issues on the Smartthings or Hubitat community forums, and somebody says that they have these bulbs, there will be multiple comments telling the poster to get rid of them.

I paid $75 for my six and since I held onto them for a couple of months before adding them, I couldn't return them. I threw them away and my smart home system was instantly back to normal.

Because not every one is homeowner and not all leases allow you to replace switches.

Smartthings . The only instability i get is from those cheap door sensors from visionic brand. Every few months they drop and I have to reboot those sensors alone. But they were very cheap to complain. And i learnt some new things while debugging them.

This is funny. The Cree (and most other repeating) bulbs are the problem. The Hubitat guys (the actual employees) have verified this by monitoring the network for dropped packets. Bulbs are unreliable repeaters. I have 12 of the Visonic contact sensors and they are 100% flawless.

The smartthings forum has lot of cases if visionic issues..so it is not like they are 100% flawless either. I am interested to see the hubitat article. Could you share please and thank you.

It's not like I've read about this lately. I threw my repeating bulbs (which were 6 of these Crees) in the trash and my problems went away.

I just googled "hubitat repeating bulbs dropped packets" and here is the first result.
https://community.hubitat.com/t/r...bulbs/4910
Mike Maxwell is a "Principle Engineer" for Hubitat. He flat out says that he does not know of any repeating bulbs that do not cause issues.

One person in that same thread did say that their Crees were fine as long as they had less than 10. That wasn't my experience. I had 6.

My 12 Visonic sensors were 100% flawless for a year before I bought the Cree bulbs, an absolute disaster for the month that I had the Crees installed, and have been back to absolutely flawless for the two years since I removed the Cree bulbs. I had other issues too. Everything that was physically located anywhere near the Crees was a mess.

Here is a document directly from Hubitat.
https://docs.hubitat.com/index.ph...igbee_Mesh
Read tip #4 at the bottom.

Here are more threads.
https://community.hubitat.com/t/t...ents/18803
https://community.hubitat.com/t/b...sale/12662
https://community.hubitat.com/t/h...ulbs/7388/ The less than ten guy posted in this thread as well. Someone responded to him and agreed with me that ANY Cree bulbs will destroy your network.
https://community.hubitat.com/t/i...lbs/20330/
https://community.hubitat.com/t/s...ulbs/17801

The consensus is that repeating bulbs cause problems.

Really ?I love my visonic door sensors, both on ST and now on hubitat. Mine are very reliable. On very busy doors, I get 6-8 months battery life. Only One sensor went bad on me, was dropping off regularly and eating 5-7 batteries per year, on a seldom used door. I got rid of that one.

I am wondering if there is something else going on in the network to cause the drops, because I have over 200 "things" running in my SmartThings environment and 18 of those things are Cree bulbs. No issue with them for almost 2 years this month.

I have 3 of those sensors. I always had issue with only one sensor...poor battery notification even on a new batter, drop outs like once 3-4months. I have also been using 2 crees, 4sengleds actively. Everything is good most of the time.
