[The Source] Google home mini + Smart plug and Bulbs

Warm deal at best, but the source is selling Google home mini and giving away a smart plug and 2 smart bulbs as a bonus.

Not bad. The Globe smart plugs and bulbs (WiFi) sell for as low as $10 each on sale, so they're worth at least $30, making the Mini $20. And they have the Aqua colour for GHM if you missed out on it earlier.

The Globe smart plugs and bulbs are ok, with the only caution being that last I heard the bulbs do not work with IFTTT, only their own app, GH or Alexa. The switches do work with IFTTT as a Smart Life device.

I think this is a nice deal if you're looking for these items. Around Christmas the Google Mini was $35 at Costco, the bulbs were $10 at The Source, and the 2 pack of plugs at Costco is $19, so you'd pay around $65 for everything (if you got those sale prices).

I have this bulb added to Smart Life, then to IFTTT, and it works fine.

Good to know. In the last long thread about the bulbs some people tested them with Smart Life and IFTTT and they didn't work. But there have been some updates since. Just a couple of days ago all my Smart Life devices stopped responding to Google and Alexa, and when I went to the Google Play store and did an app update, it crashed and lost all my Smart Life devices. I had to re-add them all from scratch. Unfortunately a very common experience with the current state of smart home software.

The bulbs and plug are showing as sold out and according to the mini page you have to add it to your cart as well so this deal may be dead online*.
Remember to add the BONUS Wi-Fi Smart Bulb and Smart Plug Combo to your cart before checkout!
Thanks to FallenAngel for reminding me it was available in store as well.

Out if stock online but you can still get it in store from the look of it. Stores near me still show them in stock.

The Globe smart bulbs work great for me...I picked about 14 during the last Canadian Tire deal about two weeks ago... they were $10.00 per bulb and $10.00 for the smart plugs...

these bulb are slightly different as they allow you to tune the light range from 2000k upto 5000k......the ones I got are fixed at 3000k in the light range...which is perfect for my needs.

But yeah to answer your question the bulbs work great!

cheers

Just a note for peeps: bought this at Vic. Park and Danforth (T.O.) last night (4/22). They seemed to have a bunch in stock still.
Location at Eglinton Square is out of bulbs.
