Filament LED bulbs? Do they exist?

I’ve been searching high and low for filament LED bulbs that are SmartThings compatible, but do they even exist? Or is the option something like the Aeotec Smart Dimmer and control the lights in the outlet instead?

Filament bulbs are one thing, LED is a completely different technology…

Filament work by heating up a filament with electricity which gives off light, LED is a diode which lights up when powered.

What exactly are you after? What’s the reason for it?

I assume we’re talking about something that looks like this but is smart.

I think your best bet is to use these with a smart switch / dimmer, if your application allows. All the smart bulbs I’ve seen have the other, translucent style of “glass”.

Feit bulbs have some great decretive features such as LED strips inside the bulbs to look like filament. They do cost more than normal LED Edison bulbs:
