Yes they are all the same Aurora Gu10 RGB lamps.
Another guy has said the following but I only half understand what he is saying as I am not that technical. We asked the Aurora guys for help but the regional manage said he couldn’t because it’s on your hub. We’re keen to keep your hub as the core to our system because it’s a very modern new build and we want to buy a smart floor cleaner and three TV’s from the Samsung range.
We have to add about 80 lights and Aurora dimmers etc and I would rather try to use just one hub type. We’re expecting the house to be featured in Grand Designs or Home Building and Renovation magazines in January so we do need to get this sorted.
I have a router plus three# Ubiquiti Networks UAP-AC-LR 175.7 x 43.2 mm 2.4-5 GHz 802.11ac Dual-Radio Long Range Access Points in the house.
The other guy says.
Hi, I have 18 of these exact bulbs, just wanted to chime in with my experience. I found them (or rather my smartthings zigbee mesh) extremely unreliable until I got my hub in the right place.
By right place, I mean identified which way the internal zigbee radio on my V2 hub points, pointed it at the nearest bulbs, and moved it a lot further away from my wifi router. I also changed my router settings so it wouldn’t “smart switch” between 2.4ghz radio channels with the least interference, I don’t know if that made a difference but I have a theory that it was switching to a channel close to my zigbee radio and interfering with the mesh. I live in a block of flats so there is a lot of neighbours WiFi flying around which could cause the router to switch.
Before I made these changes I had loads of trouble adding new zigbee devices (not any more Aurora bulbs but 6 IKEA tradfri button dimmers). All my bulbs would regularly show as offline (maybe every couple of days) and wouldn’t come back unless I rebooted the hub.
After I did that it was incredibly easy to add those IKEA devices and the lights themselves are way more reliable.
I don’t know if this will help you but I definitely found the position of the hub to be key for zigbee devices (more than I could have ever have anticipated actually!)
I am not sure the hub location is really the problem as the lamps are all in the same ceiling fitting. All adjacent to each other!
Can you help??
