Use the Google Smart Light Starter Kit to control the lights using just your voice. Set up is a snap, just plug in Google Home Mini, screw in the GE C-Life smart light bulb, and download the Google Home app to get started. Then just say "Hey Google..." to dim, brighten, turn on and turn off the lights.
This is such a great bundle and at only $5 to add a smart light, I couldn't resist. I have never had a smart service such as Alexa, but I think this goggle mini is just as good if not better. I am able to have her turn on and off the light, play music, tell me the weather and the news for the day, set timers, alarms and reminders for me. Also, she can add shopping items to your lists. I am not tech savy at all and this was perfect and easy to set up. It was so easy that I ended up buying 2 of these bundles (one two days later). One for my livingroom and bedroom.
Setup for the Mini and the light bulb was easy. However, as some other reviewers mentioned, the light is not very bright even at 100% brightness. Also, my Internet service from Verizon is extremely unreliable. The Mini can not do anything if the Internet service is down, so it cannot even turn the light bulb on or off. When the Internet service is down, the Mini is visible as an unsecure WiFi hotspot, which is a HUGE security vulnerability.
The google minis work great but the lights are just terrible. One of the bulbs won’t even turn on by itself when plugged in, and the other won’t connect to the app. These were purchased for my grandparents who don’t live with me and it’s a big hassle to return and exchange the entire unit when the google minis have been set up already, so I guess we’ll just use it as a regular bulb and forget it. Looked online and apparently connectivity has been a big issue with c by GE smart bulbs- wish I would’ve known before purchasing the bundle.
I am delighted with my Google Smart Light Starter Kit. At 72, my stability is not always there. The Smart Light lets me get up at night safely without falling trying to get to the light switch. Also, Google is reminding me to take my medications on time. Love the voice options.
i already had a google home mini so i just put this new one in a different room. the light is really cool though. I have it set up to turn on when I am leaving work at night so that my house it lit when I get home... No more walking into a dark house. and it doesn't matter when I leave work. I used to have a timer that would turn the light on when it started getting dark and would leave it on until 10 pm. Now i am saving electricity by only turning it on when i need it to be on.
