Like all of this type of LED bulbs, you just get half a light instead of a full bulb. I have them in the coach lights on the garage and they aren't bad, but still prefer the look of a full bulb. That being said, it was overall a quick and easy setup to get them operating after downloading the app. I like the variety of choices, not only in color, but in types of light, dimming capabilities, and patterns. It is much more convenient to change the colors for special events and holidays instead of buying bulbs of each color. Several neighbors have done the same thing so we can coordinate our efforts to honor groups such as LEO, military, healthcare workers, etc. as well as celebrate the holidays.
So far they have performed well and very happy with the ease of using the app for the lights and also the ability to add new devices later on.

Has been excellent for my intended indoor use. Possible concerns by some consumers; initial programming challenges but always completed, when turning on with app some lights may lag less than a second behind others (I have nine in a theater), will not connect/ change light colors to music being played. Positive; 1/3-1/2 price of Hue bulbs. Photo of can lights by Wiz.
This is my 4th Philips LED Bulb and second one with color capabilities. It is so easy to connect these to your WiFi using the WIZ app and then setting it up for a specific location and timer functions if you so desire. The bulb works as promised with the ability to set up so many different colors that you lose count. They work well with Alexa without any issues. I think these are a great addition to any home that is looking to automate their lighting.
Pros: Compact, Easy Installation, Easy to Use, Eco-Friendly, Great Dimming, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Stylish, Very Bright
Really great quality WIFI light that is super easy to get set up. About us - We have several Google Home/ Nest devices already. We had wanted to get into smart lights, but the need for a hub and lights made if economically non sensical. Enter the Phillips with built in wifi. A simple "Turn on the light" or "Set the light to purple" is all you need and your light is on and the correct shade
Pros: Easy Replacement, Easy to Use, Eco-Friendly, Nice Design
I never thought I'd be OBSESSED with a light bulb because, well, it's just a bulb that creates light. Alas, the light bulb has been reinvented and something great has come out of the year 2020. I have never had a "smart bulb" and didn't really understand until I got my hands on this, but installation was super easy and in about 5 minutes I had the app installed on my phone and spent an hour and a half playing around with all the different features through the app.
You can pick from the many preset color schemes or create your own and add them to your favorites. My favorites are the 'TV time' (see pictures) which mimic soft ambient blue lighting that doesn't compete with the lighting on your TV screen, and the 'party time' which is a fun montage of colors resembling a nightclub.
I only have one of these so far installed in the lamp on my nightstand, but I plan on purchasing several for around the house and linking them all in the app.

Fun light that’s easy to control. Set up was a breeze ... once I gave up on their “smart set up” and just chose manual. The smart set up I literally had the light, phone, and internet next to the lamp and nada. Tried it four times. Then decided to hit manual enter. First try, as easy as cutting through warm butter, the light was set up.
The light has fun presets, you can set up a custom view too and set up schedules. I quite enjoy the candlelight and t.v. viewing settings.

I selected this product to handle a problem I had; no light switch installed at the house to control the garage man-door light. I was wasting electricity so I figured if the WiFi would reach I could set and control a schedule on and off nightly.
Pairing was simple, the WiFi coverage was good and everything worked through the WiZ app as instructed.
I was able to set a schedule which will automatically turn the light off at 7am and on at 7:30pm. It’ll need adjusted after daylight savings time but the app is so easy to use for me that it’ll be simple. I put on Christmas mode as a test, can’t wait until December!

I have the Philips Hue system of lights, but I wanted to give these a try since they have a much lower price point. I had no issues setting up the lights to the app, but you do have to go through several steps. Just follow the directions in the app and you shouldn’t have an issue.
I got the light setup and put it in a simple lamp in my office. The Wiz app is fairly straightforward and you can create rooms to organize your lights. You can easily change the color, brightness, and a few more functions through the app. The lights seems decently bright, but the only downside I found is the colors are a bit on the light side. I setup a blue color in the app but it’s not as rich of a blue as it should be compared to other colored lights. However, at the price these are being offered it’s understandable and it’s hard to compare these with lights that cost way more.
Overall, this is a nice light and if you want a smart home lighting setup these should do just fine. You can start with one and build upon that as needed.
I ordered the PHILIPS COLOR AND TUNABLE WHITE A19 LED 60-WATT EQUIVALENT DIMMABLE SMART WI-FI WIZ CONNECTED WIRELESS LIGHT BULB. I received it yesterday and installed it. It was not too difficult to follow the procedure to get the light connected to the WiFi/Cloud. I can use my phone to control the Smart Wi-Fi LED, (I don't have the equipment to control it by voice.). I can dim the light and change the colors. I can use the app to turn the light on and off with no problem. There are a lot of features to this light. I have not used all of the features. I have tried to set the alarm which turns the light on and off at specified times, but I am having a difficult time. I haven't thrown in the towel yet, ( I will continue to work with it.). All in all, it's a great concept and you might be able to get all of the features to work.

This is one of the coolest smart devices I've ever owned! The Philips color change and tunable bulb does it all and then some. My first concern with anything "smart" is always, "will it connect easily to my home WiFi?" The short answer is YES! It took a few screen taps and 3 minutes. The Wiz App is so easy to use. The control options are almost endless. There is a scheduling option, a timer feature, a flame look option. You can control how slow or fast the light turns on and turns off. This is an amazing light. When set on the "daylight" option it is more than bright enough to work under. I can't say enough good things about it. Also, If you use Google assistant, Alexa or IFTTT it works perfectly. I use Google with a Nest Hub and the WiZ app sync'd up in just seconds. I also tested what happens with a power outage. There where no issues at all. In 5 minutes everything was running just as before. This bulb is worth every penny paid!
