Given how cheap the GE Link bulbs are, I am very tempted to either import some, or ask a friend who is going to the US next month to grab me a couple to save on shipping! I think it works out about £10 a bulb, compared to £20-25 for a Wemo bulb which I am currently a fan of but costly.
I am aware of Hue being around a similar price (£10-15 for white only) but comes with the complication of reset issue if you don’t want to use the Hue hub (which I don’t…!)
Anyway, has anybody used a GE Link bulbs within the UK, and successfully paired them to a UK ST hub?
The only snags I can see is:
GE Link website suggests that the screw is an E26 rather than the UK’s E27, but same A19 form factory as other smart bulbs.
Input voltage and AC frequency being different. I know most electronics tend to support either 110 up to 250v and 50/60Hz but I cant see the tech spec for GE Link’s which state if they support this?
