[Costco] Globe Smart Bulbs LED 3pk $22.99/$26.99

$22.99 - in store
$26.99 - online

These don't have the best reviews, but they have a good warranty and Costco's return policy.
Most negative reviews seem to be attributed to the pairing process.

I've been using these blubs for almost 2yrs and don't have any issues with them. They works with google and alexa. I also have 2 plugs.
I do use the globe apps but not as good as Kasa but it will do.

Newbie here. What is better? Smart bulbs or smart switches?

If you are considering a switch to control a light/lamp, then I'd say a bulb would be ideal, especially at this price.

If possible, smart switches are always better IMO. With the bulbs, you always have to have the light switch on and you can't really use the switch effectively, you basically have to use your voice or phone. With a switch, you can easily use the switch as well.

Just beware, I returned mine as they didn't even last a year ...

Plus some of the colors were not really the correct color, and anything colored was like 50% brightness or less of the white color, overall not impressed ...

It all depends on your application. These bulbs are RGB tunable.

Definitely depends on your individual needs, but I find myself wanting to turn off a light with the switch more often that I find myself needing my room to be green...

Just got a downvote for 'not a good price'
Could that downvoter please link to an RGB tunable smart bulb less than $7.67/ea?

I had this issue as well but they actually released a Version 2 of the bulb. The ones currently in stock at Costco have revamped hardware and the colored lights are SIGNIFICANTLY brighter. I ended up returning all my 1st gen Globe bulbs and replaced with these. While it is true 1/9 has failed on me, because its costco I can just refund them. For the price/performance now on the Gen2 bulbs I don't see how you can go wrong.

I bought these when they were $30 for enclosed outdoor usage. I tuned the lights to match the hue of my neighbours' porch lights. The light above my attached garage responds to commands about 50% of the time. There's a lot of brick and metal between the light and my router.

I have these for my bedroom. Colour RGB lighting for these are terribly dim and aren't worth it as there are better RGB bulbs. I only keep this on for regular white lighting as that's the only colour that's bright.

How have they held out? Was wondering how they would handle Canadian winter temperatures.
