I am looking for the best Smartthings compatible bulb that is also attractive to look at while switched off. Yes, I could use a smart plug to turn any bulb on/off, but I would like to be able to dim and possibly color change the bulbs too (for fun).
I am wanting to place them in outdoor fixtures where the bulb itself is highly visible during the day. They looked particularly nasty as CFL bulbs in the past, but the modern smart bulbs are also not great looking in an old-fashioned fixture. Something a little glitzy or “filament” looking would be better than the white blobs we have now. I have attached som photos of the fixtures.
I am located in Sweden and am prepared to upgrade and add new hubs if needed. I have currently what I think is the latest Smartthings Hub from Samsung (v3?).
By the way, do you think the signal will reach the lamps on the gate posts? About 5-6 car lengths from the bulbs by the front door. The bulbs by the front door work fine but I only one bulb right now so if I move it to the gate posts it will be even further away from the Hub in the house.
Appreciate and thoughts and hope it fits within this thread. Thanks !
