Thanks for the post! I think it may be only in your store. I checked the item numbers from your photo, and neither of these can be found online.

Great post, I have used ecoSmart zigbee bulbs. I got lots around the house. Daylight, soft whites, and RGBW. I'll check some other HD when I stop by.

You can use their app to check the price/stock
The GU10 says is 49c and the other one $1.50 but OOS

Thanks for the post OP, looking for some White Ambiance ones.
I have a bunch of these (RGBW and Ambiance white) that I bought on clearance for about $2 last year, I think these are a Home Depot "brand" item, and they aren't restocking as far as I understood (probably due to the quality)
I think it's really hit and miss. I bought 12 of which 2 were DOA and I had to return. Over the last few months some randomly disconnect from my Smartthings despite the fact that none are more than 20m away from the hub. You can reset them to get them synced again, but it's annoying if they're in a fixture that's hard to reach.
I have a bunch of Hue bulbs and have never had a single issue with those. I guess the quality is in accordance to the price.
Also as a heads up, for the RGBW ones, the colors are off what you'd expect compared to the Hues (blues are more purple, greens are more yellow, etc), but OK

I bought some but I haven't been able to get the RGB ones to fully function (only working from 2.8k to 6k to so).

The ones I've been using have been flawless. I thought they were just discontinuing the old bubble packaged bulbs.. pretty sure the new zigbee ecosmart bulbs are in cardboard box packages. I could be wrong.

Do you need a hub to use these or just the app? I would like to use it with google home if possible.

I bought some of these - but FYI they are not reliable. My zigbee network is fairly robust and i have other devices that work perfectly and no matter what I do, they become randomly unresponsive. I've tried them w/ Zigbee2Mqtt and Wink - and they definitely work better with Wink - but there is a delay for the command :(

You need a zigbee hub. For me they work perfectly with Smartthings. Never loses connection.

Are you using with Smartthings? You need to change the device type. It initially shows up as a generic zigbee tunable bulb. You need to manually change it to zigbee rgbw in the groovy control panel.

Yep using SmartThings, but honestly I haven't played around with it much.

That might be wink's fault.

I saw these at my local HD and they've been on the shelf since that posts last year. I saw a manager taking them off the shelf and later asked him where he put them and said he just wrote them off i.e. they're now gone and can't be bought back..so I think they went right into the garbage. He told me I should've talked to him sooner as he would've sold them to me cheaper than the sticker. I'm already outfitted with so many bulbs I didn't buy any.

Anyone seen RGB anywhere? Would love to get one more. These dim down much lower than the Sengled I already have.
