This smart bulb is a fun way to not only save energy, but help create a whole new room. I received this Mercury Innovation smart bulb through the Spark Reviewer program and the feedback and opinions are my own. I was easily able to link this bulb up to my Alexa, so it is easy to turn on/off, as well as change the color to suit my mood or event. I'm already excited about using it for Halloween and don't have to worry about changing out multiple bulbs since this one has several colors to choose from! I love that it's an LED, so it will last longer and is energy and cost efficient. For anyone who likes connecting technology, this is a great bulb to have in your home. It supports apple and android technology and is super easy to set up and format to your needs; we even changed the full name of the product to just bulb. Easy, fun and efficient and will purchase more for other rooms.

Merkury Innovations Color Smart A21 Light Bulb, 75W Equivalent, No Hub Required
So much fun!
I love Merkury Innovations products and already have several, and this Smart Light Bulb may just be my favorite! Since I already had the Geeni app it was a breeze to set up and off I went on a wonderful color journey! You can set it to a solid color, or choose from an array of scenes that have different light levels for reading and ambiance and also several fun color changing scenes. I put the bulb in my front porch light and have had a blast changing the colors already. Our Governor started a thing where everyone put up green lights to show support for those fighting Covid, so I love that I can change it all different colors of green! There is even a "nature" scene setting where it slowly moves through different shades of green! I changed it to a scene that was red, blue, and green on the 4th of July. One suggestion I would have for the app is that I would like to be able to change the colors in the scenes. You can change it to any color you want when it's just a solid color, but the colors in the scenes are set and there is no way to change them. Like the "rave" scene only flashes red, and I would like to be able to change the color. Not a big deal though and I still love all the fun things it does.
It's super easy to control from my phone. I can turn it off and on from the app, and have it set on a schedule so it's not on all the time. The bulb itself is made of plastic which I thought was cool... no worry of it breaking outside! I was shocked to see that as long as you only use it a few hours a day it can last over 20 years! Plus it only costs $1.32 a year to run! Fun, economical, and easy to use... what more could you want from a smart bulb??
Great smart lightbulb!
This is a good smart lightbulb, and I really enjoy it. The colors are alot of fun, and a great way to set a certain tone and mood to any room. They aren't too bright, which I like because it just adds a nice little color boost to my room. The regular white light is sufficient enough to light up a room though.
It connected fairly easily to wifi, but it did take a little time to find the right way to connect. Since connecting it to the wifi it has been working great. The app is very easy to use, and it works with Google Assistant and Alexa. I can control the light with my voice, and it's easy to set how bright or dim you want the light to be.
Amazing smart bulb
I would highly recommend this smart bulb especially for someone who enjoys a change of scenery in the home life. The instructions were very easy to understand and comprehensible. I personally have never set up anything so easy and I am not tech savy per say. I love the fact this bulb saves me money as it's energy efficient but also easy to operate downloadable app makes it easy to operate. I also enjoy the fact I can set up a daily timer or even operate the bulb from my phone if I'm not home and forget to turn off/on the light. The bulb can be used as standard or a color of preference. Also this bulb can be set upon different lighting features as well as brightness according to the mood for the moment. I will include a picture of the app but the photo I have of the bulb doesn't do it true justice. The set up process was less than five minutes, the best five minutes I've spent for such a neat home aspect. So far I've gotten several compliments from several visitors who are enthused and plan to purchase a smart bulb for their home (seeing is believing) . I have nothing negative to say as this is a win win in every way.
Beautiful lighting for the modern home!
I am very impressed and happy with the performance of this Merkury Innovations Smart Light Bulb! It was very simple and straightforward to install and set up this smart light bulb, you just connect this smart light bulb to your home WiFi and then download the geeni app that lets you control the light remotely from anywhere. What's even better is the convenience that this smart light bulb can be used with popular voice control apps, such as Google Assistant, Alexa and Microsoft Cortana. This dimmable smart light bulb lets you choose from an incredible amount of vibrant, bright, beautiful light colors to suit your mood and accentuate the space you are using it in. It can also be used as a simple white light color if you prefer. There are a couple of preprogrammed modes you can choose from, too, which automatically switch through a preprogrammed variety of colors for beautiful lighting effects of your home. What I love most is the ability to set schedules for the light to turn on and off on its own at a certain time of the day. The geeni app also lets you control multiple Merkury smart light bulbs at once as a group or individually if you choose. This smart light bulb is an excellent upgrade and replacement for regular light bulbs, they are energy efficient and have a very long lifespan. I highly recommend Merkury Smart Light Bulbs!
Coolest Light Bulb Ever!!
I have to say this is the most coolest lightbulb I have ever seen or used. What an awesome, innovative technology. It is so easy to use. You first download the app through Google Play or Apple store. It also works connected with your Alexa or Google Assistant. You set up the app then screw in the lightbulb. Once it blinks a few times you connect the app and your device to it. It is so simple to control it. It has how many diming options. It has thousands of color choices and settings like rainbow and it's like a slide show of colors. You can even change the brightness of the colors. The colors and settings are truly mind blowing. I could literally sit there all day and just watch them. It's like a colorworks display. It is energy saving and lasts a long time. It's a great price too. I can't rave enough about this. Go out and get yourself one or more because you can even connect the bulbs to each other. You will be blown away too!! I love this so much.
Nice lighting bulb but very difficult to connect..
The first good thing I noticed was its premium quality material yet with light weight. It is many times less heavy than my previous bulb in lamp (and that one was expensive too when I bought that 1 yr back).
The worst thing I hated was its annoying and tiring process of setting it up for the first time. It just keeps blinking (in fast or slow blinking mode doesn't make a difference) but never connects to the wifi 2.4GHz. I compared it to my old bulb that was so breeze to connect for the first time or whenever I tried to…… And this aspect forced me to rate it low because everyone isn't that TECH GEEK and can't take that much pain to go deep into the setup thing. I know I can still make it to work somehow (if there isn't a manufacturing issue) and set it up after some more efforts. But I can't say with surety that it would flawlessly be controlled through the smartphone app (geeni). Good thing is there is helpline number where they say we may call in case we can't connect the bulb.
This Merkury Innovations Smart Light Bulb is a fun light bulb. It has many colors to pick from and you can also pick different scenes. It was difficult to get the bulb to connect to my wifi system which is really new so I had to use an old router that is much slower and then the bulb would connect. The app is easy to use and I've had no problems with it. I don't know how much I will use the colors but it is fun for special occasions.
cool light bulb
Good light; Could not put on phone
I received this item free to write a review. I was really excited to get this bulb and try out the different colors and functions of it. It can change to different colors and be voice activated. Unfortunately, after I downloaded the software on my phone it gave me an error message because this is for 2.4 GHz Wi-fi and mine is 5 Ghz wifi in my home. I am still using the bulb as an average light bulb, but disappointed I could not use all the functions of it. I did not know at the time that there would be an issue because my GHz was higher than the 2.4. I thought it would work if it was higher and not less. Overall average because I cannot accurately review the item.
