Major flop, this product apparently sucks. Avg per CCC is about 65 bucks.

Just what I always wanted! A weird table lamp that also sniffs my wifi traffic.

I bought this and while it's kinda cool, overall I would say Dont Buy. Of course, if you're a nerd like me you won't listen to this comment. Reasons:

Appearance & Build: It's fairly attractive from a distance, but the silver base isn't as timeless as I'd like. The controls on the surface are not totally flat, that is, the control buttons are clearly separate from the base, which ruins some of the appeal.

Software: It's not truly an Alexa device like other alexa devices. It doesn't show up in the list of devices for Automations in the Alex app, meaning you can't get freaky with homeassistant or do some more highly customized things. To integrate it with your smart home, you need to configure it with GE's app, then install the GE skill in Alexa.

Clock: The clock feature, which displays the time with red and blue LED's interally, is too overstated (garish) and doesn't have features to set the brightness. I just don't use it.

Timer: The appearance of the timer lighting is cool, however it doesn't integrate with echo smarthome. If you start a timer on another device, this device won't show the timer, unlike the ill-fated Echo Clock which did a better job of displaying a timer on whatever echo clock it was paired with.

I wish there was a nice smooth "wake to sun" feature, which may exist, but if it does, I haven't found it.

Overall its alrifght, it just definitely feels like a version 1 device.
