I was surprised to find that all(?) A19 smart bulbs are 60 watt equivalents (~800 lumens). I need something significantly higher, 75 W.E. or ideally 100 W.E.
A19 means a “regular bulb shape”, not a floodlight or can light. It doesn’t actually have to be exactly A19 shape (few LED bulbs of over 1K lumens are), but it does need to fit an E26 or E27 socket and generally fit in an old-school fixture with a few inches of clearance around the bulb.
This is for the U.S., 120 volts.
Plus I’m looking for it to be dimmable, in the 2700-3000K kelvin range, and with a pretty good round light projection, like you’d expect from an A19. I don’t want something high color temp (5k or 6k). I don’t need or care about ability to change color.
I thought maybe this LE 960-lumen bulb would work, but apparently it won’t work with SmartThings.
For what it’s worth, from what I’ve seen, LED bulbs use less energy per lumen, cost less to run per lumen, and the bulb itself costs less per max lumen, as the lumens go higher. It starts getting crazy good over ~1600 lumens (old 100 watt equivalent), although that’s getting pretty high for consumer use. Still, I’m surprised that all the makers seem to agree that nobody needs more than 800 lumen A19 smart bulbs. Can’t a few products go higher, when you can always stop it down with dimming if you do sometimes want lower? Oh well.
Anyway… Anyone know of an A19 smart bulb over 800 lumens that will work with SmartThings?
