Item Wanted: E27 LED Smart Bulb +-10 Watt or so, not requiring a hub and just dimming & colour temperature capabilities.
Packaging Essential: If possible yes
Desired Age: meh, so long as its usable
Location: Nelspruit
Willing to accept a shipped item: Yes
Ballpark/Budget Amount: +-R300?

So been meaning to try out one of these bulbs before diving just for the hell of it, something similar to this : LB100 | Smart Wi-Fi LED Bulb with Dimmable Light | TP-Link South Africa

FYI

Why not get the Xiaomi Yeelight for R399 ? Its a porper smart bulb.

You can get converters from Builders or Mica and change fitting if needed :)

Yea I'm after the Yeelights, they look pretty good. This is just a test I want to do and see how they operate and if its actually useful or just a gimmick.

If we buy more than 10 together I can get them cheaper.

If you guys want I can make a thread and get 10 and you buy from me. I need another 2 or 3 ... if you guys can make up 8 or so we can save almost R40 per a bulb :)

This is what I did :) made my own swart rustic light. Cost like R780 with bulbs where the lightibg place near me want R1700 for just the holder ... crazy stuff


I got the V2 which is more efficient, slightly higher Wattahe but much brighter light :)

Really love saying "Ok Google, turn on Bedroom lights or change to Red " or whatever I need

Are your V1 or V2 ? Grey or white base ?
Price ?

Yes they are E27 standard but when you make your own frame you don't get E27 fittings easily :/ Makro, Builders, Mica and 2 other hardware stores did not have ... only a big ugly porcelain one :/

But I actually experienced the same so i'm working on a website and want to rent a store in a mall etc. or atleast improve advertising. Off carb is better prospects, you can even sell on Takealot (i'll do so after the website is up)

I will fond out pricing and post on here and see what people think.

I paid R399 fpr the v2 RGB :) great device

Go look under my threads for Google Home Tips. There are also Sonoff Switches for R130 and you can control any electical device through your phone (or google home/Alexa)
