Top critical review
Scrap the docs, great bulb otherwise.
Reviewed in Australia on 29 September 2021
This smart light bulb does *NOT* work as documented - but if you can battle your way around that, they're great, especially at this price. Just one real flaw (see below).
First, the docs. Ignore the silly "start with the device on" direction, which isn't possible when the first step is turning the light on. Then...add an ADDITIONAL off/on cycle, to enter pairing mode. You can try the documented process - and look at all the 1-star reviews to see how that goes. Whether the error is in the docs, or the firmware, it will not work at 3 off/on cycles, from my experience. But 4 worked perfcetly.
Now, the product flaw (easily fixed in firmware, if they can be bothered) - the impressive "Rhythms" feature. It's a great way to set a cycle through the whole day, superior to my favoured LIFX bulbs/app, with great flexibility! BUT...if you issue ANY voice commands, the Rhythm is disabled, and you have to return to the app to re-enable it. Pretty significant flaw there...
In fact, both are serious flaws. A potentially great product that really should have been tested, and may be great with 2 simple firmware changes. Can't beat the value for money, great features, just turn it off/on one extra time, and live with the fragile Rhythms feature. I'm buying my second, and probably another one or two for family.
