This is a good deal - FYI the 4 pack is cheaper per bulb.

What's the hour lifespan on these?

I think Philips say theirs are about 25,000 hours

Are these ZIGBEE? Note that smarthhings has a limit of 32 ZIGBEE Devices. I bumped into this issue when i was buying the ECOSmart bulbs from homedepot. So i added a 3210-L smart plug which gave me up to 45 zigbee devices.

Pain in the ass to be honest.

It's not an ST limitation, but rather the devices themselves.

It actually is a ST limitation. They were working on expanding it to 64 devices in a firmware update, but the retracted it due to issues. All you need to do is add smart plugs to expand the network.

From what I read, it's the devices themselves are not acting as a "repeater" or only limited to a certain amount.

Although some bulbs can act as repeaters i read that they are very flakey with Smartthings. All Smart plugs act as repeaters, with the Lowes Iris version that expands the MOST devices at 13 extra zigbee devices. It was pretty expensive at $50, but i bought close to 40 EcoSmart LED bulbs (wchih should be similar to these bulbs in this threads) to replace potlights and stair lights and with the addition of Zigbee motion and door switches, i capped out at 45. I have a few extra bulbs but i am unable to connect due to hitting the limit.

BTW - Its too bad the ECObulbs are pretty much all gone. They are much better deal than these amazon bulbs. Ones i got were the RGBW bulbs, variable White bulbs, and regular 3000K Potlight bulbs. They work beautifully and integrates perfectly wtih all my google homes! ie. OK Google, set potlights to Soft White!)

I also missed out on the Ecobulbs...but good to know about the limitation on these.

Any hub which supports Zigbee Home Automation. Samsung Smartthings is one of the popular ones.
