Who owns inovelli lights and switches?

I am a big fan of HUE lights, but do not like the cost. I tried Sengled Lights and do not like them at all

I wanted to see what anyone thought about the inovelli color bulbs and have responsive are they and do they work better than sengled ?

I tried the Sylannia color bulbs and did not like how hot they got.

Appreciate the discussion

EDIT: after some investigation it appears the problems I was having were mesh related. While I have moved these bulbs to a alternate location the jury is still out. Thanks to @bcopeland and hubitat support for helping me fix the mesh.

I do not like my inovelli bulbs...I am about to replace them with Lightify bulbs.

I find them to send a burst of data after a CT or color change that will sometime lag the whole z-wave network for 5-10 seconds..

I am using the most up to date driver I can find. @bcopeland might be able to help some with these as he wrote a bunch of driver optimizations.

:eyes: Yes .. This is a necessary evil unfortunately... It can be removed but color reporting won’t be correct.. I have 27 of these but have a very strong, well designed mesh and have no issues changing all at the same time.. And do (sunrise/sunset) as well as a ton of other z-wave devices

My issue is I have 4 color bulbs that I use for Notifications and lighting. So I have been setting the bulb back to CT 2700 when turning on with the button so it wont come on to the last notification color. This seems to really tie up the network to the point that other lights take forever to respond. any advise?

I love all of my RED series switches

Can you do this and capture the logs.. capture the log on all devices so I can see what all else is going on at the time

well, It looks llike they are disconnectiuing their cloud service, wonder if they are going to keep making the bulbs

dumb question but I have to ask, after looking at my amazon order. I returned the Smart+ bulbs

Is there a different between Lifity and Smart+ ?

I know the cloud services are going away. but the bulbs should continue to function. These bulbs are most often used as notifications and occasionally for lighting on the way in and out of the house after dark.

I have about 6 Lightify devices now, however none of the color ones. The current cost of these devices made this an easy choice to move to.

dumb question but I have to ask, after looking at my amazon order. I returned the Smart+ bulbs

Is there a different between Lifity and Smart+ ?

I think just a different generation/iteration of the same bulbs.

good luck , let me know how you get on. I tested the smart+, I will try the lifity if its better. a Buddy of mine and myself both tried the smart+ and we found they did not work well ( only speaking of the color bulbs)

I am looking for something close to as good as HUE with out the price of Hue. I was hoping that the Inovelli color bulbs would be the one.

I am glad you like the red series switches ! I was thinking of putting a lot of the red series switches in the house to help build a strong zwave network.

I think I have 18 Red switches and dimmers. This is what I did in most of the house when I converted away from x10. I love them...however with the motion sensors I rarely have to touch them.

Looking through it to establish a timeline of packets

When it ran....the bulb turned on. ..the Kicken light turned off...then the bulb turned off about 7 seconds later

@Hasty1.. Ok.. yea this is not normal..

I see the same message being repeated a bunch of times.. Something is not right there..

I see repeats for a bunch of devices messages

Would this be a device issue (Zwave repeating) or something else going on. I just started a repair. I only have Inovelli switches, dimmers and bulbs, and one Zooz multi relay. And a Radio Thermostat!

It sounds like the device isn't getting the ack packet back to know the hub got the message so it is repeating.. How far away is your hub?

maybe 50 feet but there are 4 switches in between the hub and that switch

Then in theory is should be great.. So what is causing all the repeats.. Is there any potential interference? Anything running on 900Mhz like cordless phones, baby monitors, etc?
