From what I’ve read, the Cree Connected bulbs are supposed to be supported with ST, without the need for any additional work (other than verifying that your zigbee firmware was up to date…but even then, I don’t think that’s the issue, as they pushed out a firmware update to everyone awhile back that forced everyone to be up to date).
I bought a GE Link bulb the other day, and it was awesome. Connected INSTANTLY, and paired automatically. I stopped today and picked up a Cree Connected bulb, and for the life of me, I can’t get the dang thing to pair! It can’t be found at all, nor does turning the power off / on to it four times at 2 second intervals seem to do anything either.
I’m going to throw in the towel and take it back to Home Depot and pick up another one, and see if I have better luck with that other one. But I wanted to see if others on here have had similar issues with the Cree not pairing. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Cree (we have TONS of Cree LED bulbs around the house). So I’m hoping I just bought a dud. But I’m a bit nervous that my first Cree smart LED was a failure!
Anyone else have issues with the Cree Connected? I’d much prefer them over the GE, as they’re much lighter, and seem to have a much better consistent light output. But without the ability to connect to, they’re not doing me a whole lot of good!
