Interesting. In my experience they were a little too bright, so where we used to have 2 normal lightbulbs, we replaced them with a single Wyze bulb and then still dimmed them all considerably…we basically never use any of them at 100%, and rarely put more than 1 in a room because it’s already too bright just with the one bulb.
Still, I agree there some good price options on Amazon. I bought 3 different kinds for my daughter, but they all had problems for us. one brand completely died after a few months of use (Wyze’s should last 20+ years at 3hrs/day). Some of the color bulbs I bought off Amazon were a pain to get to connect to my router and one brand wouldn’t connect at all. I finally had to give up and just throw them away. Having now tried out a total of 5 different kinds of smart bulbs, I do have to say Wyze’s are my favorite so far, and I love that they can connect via bluetooth to still work even when there are internet problems (which happens frequently with our Xfinity)…so that is a huge plus for us that isn’t offered by very many other smart color bulbs in same price range.
Nonetheless, I totally understand that others are not happy with the Wyze price point, especially when there are other options on Amazon in the same range, and a little cheaper. I was very unhappy with several of those, though perhaps they just had a conflict with my router or something. I am sure they work well for most people since they keep selling a bunch.
Still, I do hope that Wyze adds a lot more functionality to these in the future. I really wish they would make a set of bulbs that could function completely locally through home assistant or something instead of requiring internet.
