Wyze Bulb NTP/Time Bug

The Wyze Bulb is trying to use itself (localhost) as the ntp server instead of
ntp servers provided from the dhcp server.

I provide the ntp servers back to all dhcp clients so I know that the bulbs aren’t using what’s provided to them. It’s likely that the engineers accidentally left localhost as the ntp server in the bulb’s firmware.

It’s probably best to use the public ntp pool servers per continent instead of localhost.
