What is the game plan for a Wyze smart color LED bulb? Love the white bulbs. Nw we need a color version.
They are currently in testing as marked by the topic tag.
As @brlepage pointed out they are currently in testing but there is not a timeline for release yet
It recently passed through the FCC… so i’d assume that it comes soon…
Waiting for the color LED bulbs before buying. Hopefully it is coming soon.
Anyone want to start predictions on the announcement date? I’m guessing it will be a Tuesday.
Shoot- i thought i was posting on wishlist!
Please be patient- i know, i know
I cant find this under wishlist, but it’s my first time here so maybe I’m just blind.
I would LOVE Wyze bulbs but I just adore my overpriced hue bulbs. I have no doubt Wyze will make a more affordable, brighter, hubless option and I hope to see it soon. There’s no way I’m alone on this so forgive the noob a possible duplicate.
Welcome to the forums!
This thread is labeled “testing”, so keep an eye out!
stole my answer!
I saw this in the Shop part of the app earlier.
The ‘Learn More’ link didn’t work and it soon disappeared from the app.
I’m very excited about these. They just need to add some smart light buttons or switches like Hue have.
Today is the day! Wyze Bulb Color is officially available for preorder! We’ve been hard at work on this product for over a year and are thrilled to see it finally launch. We’re updating the entire lighting experience in the Wyze app with major improvements and new features coming throughout 2021. It all starts with Wyze Bulb Color and we’ll begin shipping preorders in March!
Hey, I cannot find the link. Can you send one?
@Wyze Any idea if we will be able to control color from IFTTT? Want to ensure I can control these via Home Assistant or other 3rd party apps similar to the way I do with the standard white LED Wyze bulbs. (Ultimately would like local control instead of the slower/delayed IFTTT, but I’ll take whatever I can get)
Once this shows up in stores as a single bulb ( i only need 1 RGB smart bulb…not 3)…i will see how it compares to my Feit Electric RGB bulb.
Also, I hope Wyze put better shielding on their new RGB bulb than the white ones.
I went through 4 wyze white smart bulbs, each bought at different places over 6 months time. Each one caused so much RF interference, for my OTA TV antenna for certain channels, making them unwatchable, even when the bulb was off, and in the farthest room from the antenna. Gave them away to friends.
(The Feit bulb, i can put in same room, next to the antenna, off or on, has no effect on signal.)
sorry that some people are nocturnal jon
Where are the RGB-specific settings in Rules for Bulb Color? They just arrived and I’m really sad to see their settings in Rules are identical to the white Bulbs.
The app/rule integration is the biggest benefit of staying in the Wyze ecosystem, and it’s missing any of the cool features I was expecting.
At the very least an ability to Shortcut, Schedule, and Device trigger with a certain RGB color. I barely use the app to control my setup, that’s what I bought all of the motion and contact sensors for.
I might just end up returning these if we don’t get some feedback from Wyze about if these basic functions are in the works and will be released soon. For Rules users these are no different from the white bulbs, besides being more expensive.
I would imagine they just didn’t implement it yet, i made a ticket if you didn’t already.
I get that, and I really hope so.
It’s still disappointing for the hardware to arrive before the software to take advantage of it is really ready. It was sold as a pre-order, not a public beta.
