Monoprice RGB Bulbs


(J Bentz) #1

Looks like there is another RGB Bulb option out there. The price isn’t as aggressive as I would expect from Monoprice, but maybe there will be a sale or a coupon soon that will bring it down.

The bulbs are apparently Zwave…not Zigbee, like most others. The product description shows a SmartThings screenshot, so I guess they have confirmed that they work.

I don’t think I’ll be snagging them at the current price, but I’d be interested in hearing about any experiences if someone else decides to jump on it.

Got one as a test. It’s controllable manually and through the Alexa integration, but for some reason smartlighting automation doesn’t seem to work.

These are on sale for $10 off. Have you had any better luck getting them working?


#4

Nope. Opened a support case with monoprice, no response.

I’m surprised we haven’t seen more people trying these bulbs on here. I’ve seen them drop well below $30 at times. That’s pretty cheap for an RGB bulb, no?

I have two of them working perfectly. I had to bring a lamp next to my hub in order to get them to pair - but once I did, they work great…so much better than ZigBee in my house!

Inexplicably, the schedule started working. So it seems to be fully functional now.

Anyone figure out how to group these lights together without making a scene? I would like to be able to change them all to the same color at the same time instead of running through each one.

Trendsetter would do it.

These are on sale for $16.80… wondering how they compare to Hue bulbs? Do they hold up okay outside?
