Use Zwave wall switch with LIFX GU10?


#21

Do you know, I'd actually never considered moving the bulb to another fixture to reset it!!! D'oh! :man_facepalming:

Although when I finally get around to getting my LIFX downlights installed I'm definitely having a switch :slight_smile:


#22

Did you guys see this?


#23

Also another hidden surprise: the Day/Dusk bulbs are capable of up to 6000K now with the new firmware. You can set it via HE, but not with their app yet. Definitely makes those bulbs a lot more versatile for the average person using color temperature.

I read your reply and had a chuckle, then saw the emoji and thought β€œ when did the current POTUS get his own emoji ??” :joy:
It’s still eatly in the morning, here. :sleeping:


#25

Oh, I like those - not sure I need one, but who knows :slight_smile:


#26

Interest in the candelabra lights completely depends on cost and lumens produced.


#27

Yeah, they're cool, but I'm going to have to wait til the price comes wayyy down. Even at Hue's prices that's a very expensive chandelier.


#28

I don't even really think they are that cool. Lol. When I used Hue bulbs (before removing them for higher lumen bulbs) I almost never used the color change ability.

Sure, the kids loved to play with it, but I never found it interesting/useful. Just a gimmick.

I'll take a one color, but much brighter, bulb any day.


#29

So far, the only interesting thing I have using color is: visual feedback of something.

Garage Door Open = purple
Perimeter Door(s) open too long = orange
etc.
Also, both are now using TTS to Google Home Mini.

I have a 3-bulb lamp in our living room that is on rainbowcycle mode for parties. The rest of the time I choose the colors, often holiday/season related. Then I have 3 outdoor lampposts on rainbow mode 365 days of the year.

From a utilitarian standpoint I find CT bulbs more useful and have them throughout the house - warmer at night, cooler during the day.


#31

Same here.
Blue = leak detected (this one saved me a couple of times already)
Red=smoke
Green = doorbell (for when I'm gaming in the office with the headphones on)
Very Dark Dim blue = Movie mode (so we can still see enough to avoid impaling ourselves on the kids toys if we need to get up for any reason)


#32

I wanted to explore using colors to highlight a few oil paintings. Not sure how it will look as compared to using normal white accent lights. But want to try it.


#33

Now I have another problem to solve - finding 4 inch recessed light trims that are deep enough to take the lifx GU10s. Seems they are slightly longer than the regular GU10.


#34

very funny!


#35

In hindsight it's hilarious...but at the moment of impact, when your vision gets blurry, and pain is at its threshold, all you can think is....I'm take EVERY @#$g toy into the garage, light them on fire and bask in the glow of their destruction.

superpain

@SmartHomePrimer..that one's for you :wink:

Only to buy them all back again in a few days due to the greater pain you are going to be in if you don't replace them asap!!
