Could never get it working.
By Uncle Crackoon
***Update*** Support contacted me and gave me a few suggestions to try. The problem was the app I was using. There is a QR code for an app on the WiFi box itself but it is in Chinese. You will need to search the app store for milight. In Google Play store the app is called Milight 2.0. Once you get the correct app it works pretty good. Still not as easy to use as the big name home automation solutions.
Unfortunately, this was the weak link in the kit I bought. I could never get the APP on my phone paired with the lightbulb.
I am a system engineer by trade so this tech stuff usually comes pretty natural for me. I was able to get the kit connected to my wifi with by using the recommended APP with no problems. I tried for about an hour to pair the lightbulb with the app to be able to control the light with my phone but never succeeded and eventually gave up. The instructions are pretty clear but it just wouldn't work for me.
I woul stick with the hand held remote if you can live without the smartphone control. You can find the remote here:Milight 2.4G 4-Zone LED Wireless RF RGBW Controller Touch Remote Not Include Batteris For Milight RGBW Led Bulbs
I received a complimentary product in return for real testing and my honest opinion.
