These are zigbee bulbs and you MUST have a hub like SmartThings or Wink.

They are $12.49 on Amazon or $48.99 for a 4 pack, available right now.

1st one I got was a dud, it would buzz and flicker at any brightness above 60%, Sengled offered to replace it but their Canadian warehouse was (is? hence the pre-order...) out of stock, so I went through Amazon to return it
2nd one worked great but I ended up returning it as well

They were super easy to pair with my Wink hub compared to the Ikea Tradfri bulb which were much more finicky, needing to toggle them 6 times to reset+1

But I do prefer the $14 Ikea bulb, 200lm brighter on paper (can't really tell IRL) and CRI 90 vs 80 (82) of the Sengled, reds are better rendered, slighty warmer white even if both are rated 2700k, it is however slighty not as efficient (1000lm 12.5W = 80 lm/W vs 800lm 9W = 89 lm/W)
IIRC appears to have more dimming range as well compared to the Sengled.
OH, and they act as a repeater as well in the zigbee mesh network whereas the Sengled are just a simple end device

Keep in mind that the Sengled PAR30 600lm however are rated CRI 90+ which should provide excellent light quality

Would this work with the Harmony Hub?
No, the Harmony Hub doesn't have any zigbee (or z-wave) radio, only IR and Bluetooth, you'll need a...hub extender? lol

Thanks for your feedback. Yes I saw it on Amazon also . A couple of bucks more per bulb if you want it right away and Amazon wants a $35 minimum for free shipping

Most smart switch only toggles on/off, not many can dim and if they do, it's usually expensive+LED bulb compatibility issues.
*IF* you do find the perfect combo, then you can have one smart dimmer switch with a bunch of "dumb" LEDs bulbs, which should cost less.

Smart bulb on the other hand offers more flexibility and allows you individual control over each bulb (and their brightness), allowing grouping as well.

Yeelight has North America version sold on Amazon.com, I think they are lower lumens than say LIFX.

You need the extender for Zigbee and Z-Wave

Any opinion about Smart Bulb vs Smart Switch ? I already have the SmartThings hub for my Door lock and realllllyy like it but using smart lighting means that you and your visitors must use an app to control lights?

[EDIT] Ok google answered me :) https://www.howtogeek.com/279516/smart- ... d-you-buy/
If you have fixtures that uses non-standard bulbs and need many bulbs, go for the switch

If your device box (gang) does not have neutral and/or depth clearance, go for bulb. Wiring boxes is not for beginners and especially you have 3-way/4-way, it's even harder.

+1 on not having a neutral wire, most older homes don't, the only exception perhaps would be the Lutron Caseta dimmer switch, which needs their own hub or the Wink (not compatible with ST)

Edit: OK so it looks like this witchcraft is acheived by closing the circuit and taking a small power draw through the bulb which may causes flickering depending on the bulb.
