What's your basis? If you use smartthings then both work seamlessly. I have two properties, two hubs, and a massive network. I have over 200 combined devices and I use both zwave and zigbee extensively. They both have separate benefits and down sides. I actually find zigbee to be a more reliable network as long as you understand how it works and use repeaters to extend the strength. Zigbee has more limitations in the number of devices then zwave but you can expand that network exponentially by using repeaters. To restrict your smart home to only zwave or zigbee is a disservice to yourself. Take the time to learn more about both standards and embrace them equally.

I am guilty of preferring this type of discussion as well. I'm sick and tired of not knowing what kind of light I'm going to get and having all four lamps in the living room a different color. I would like some standardization so that I may actually know about the product I'm picking.
I understand this is similar to going to the medical doctor with an internet diagnosis, but as a layperson, this is the only way I have to talk intelligently about the different light qualities.
Please, enlighten us. We think we know what we are talking about, but if something was missed in the translation, what is it?
You have to admit, marketing phrases do not accurately describe the product, so what is a picky non-professional to do?

3000K is considered bright white (I agree with you, it's not bright white, roughly 4300K is) and 5000K is "daylight" which is considerably blue-tinged and harsh for most indoor usage, although it does work pretty well in kitchens.

For reference: 2700K is considered warm white, and even 2300K bulbs are listed under warm white, although those are almost orange.

I'm not sure why there's that huge donut hole between 3000K and 5000K that you can only get with something like Hue White (or color) Ambiance bulbs, but that's what I've got so I can get that "white" I want.

3000K is not a bright white. It's a very yellow light.

"Bright White" might be industry terminology. The 3000K bulbs from Feit are named Bright White. Compared to classic incandescent, it does look... "bright"
:-D

It looks like Zigbee is the future, given CHoIP.

I prefer zwave for most of my home automation, but I have found most lights to be zigbee. Hopefully with zwave being an open standard now, we will see some affordable zwave light bulbs.

There is a new standard and zigbee and Amazon and Google are all onboard.

Was about to jump on these, but at 120w equivalent along with the color temp doesn't really seem like what I need for an outdoor floodlight to light a driveway. Even Sylvania picts on the Amazon page seems to show it more as outdoor ambiance lights, oh well.

How come these lights cannot ship to CA? I noticed that other Sylvania Par 38 lights can't be shipped to CA on the amazon page. Does anyone know why?
