The ONLY helpful video I could find on youtube on pairing the smartthings hub with the sengled bulb

rick fimple says:

Hi Brett great videos! I originally was going to buy these, based on your review, but I purchased two tp link smart bulbs on a whim when i saw them at the store. I am beginning to think having a Hub would work better with my set up. The issue I am having with the wi fi no hub bulbs is connectivity. They work fine but get kicked off my network once in awhile. I have a lot of wi fi devices. I have 4 Echos, 2 google homes, and two wemo smart plugs, plus harmony hub and a smart tv etc. I did check my echos and moved them all to the 5ghz channel and this seemed to help a lot. You mentioned in this video that the hub may lessen the wi fi traffic, is this because it is Zigbee and just the hub is connected to wi fi? Despite all my gadgets I am reallly not a “tech guy” and I am just learning about the different frequencies and realizing all this stuff matters! lol. I guess my question is will the Sengled Hub help? and if so How? My house is about 1,300 ft….my router is upstairs, I want to use the seglend lights for the downstairs dining room and the upstairs hallway. Oh, I dont have any other connectivity issues, for example the wemo smart plugs have never been kicked off network.

Nice video, I want to ask you, I have the SmartThings hub now I must buy the starter kit or only the bulb?

Brett, great instruction and guidance. I was totally frustrated with getting the light bulb paired with the Smart Hub you were concise and very specific. Issue solved! So I do have another issue though. The A19 programmable when paired does not indicate a dimmer slider? I purchased the bulb at Wal-Mart btw.

The main reason for my purchase was to pair a Schlage ZWave door lock system with the Smart Hub. You do a great job with your You Tub support. You might think of adding one inn the future.

Thanks again

Barry Cook

really nice video

the eabster says:

I’m not totally understanding this smart home thing altogether. When it comes to these hubs do they all pretty much do the same thing like a Harmony Hub will they control my lights as well as the TV and sensors? The SmartThings Hub by Samsung would it do the same thing is it more reliable than the harmony? Or is there a better Hub out there that I should look into. And with the lifx bulbs they do not require a hub. Do they make a thermostat that does not require a hub as well? And I know you ain’t got all the answers but why the hell wouldn’t Google put a hub build into their speaker? Thanks for listening to my 1000 questions have a good day buddy

Emanuel Perry says:

Do a review on a smart thermostat.

Joris van de Pavoordt says:

Hi Brett, love your videos! I bought Sengled lights myself after watching this video. I can’t seem to connect the hub to my router though. Apparently my SSID doesn’t meet the Sengled hub requirements (it doenst include a lowercase letter). Do you know a way around this by any chance? I have never had this issue before, and my internet provider (who also provided me with this router) doesnt let me change the SSID.

noRebrand says:

video resolution is looking like burnt toast even at the 1080p setting. Everything is very grainy..

Pink Magic Ali says:

How about a vid on products available in Aus and New Z. And perhaps one linked to that smart door locks and switches for rental properties. I can’t change my lock or light switches.

Luis Diaz says:

I need the hub? or I can buy just one bulb and put it work without any problem?

Tom Caswell says:

Do you have to set up the hub with a cable to the router on first setup? On the website it says it is technically possible to just to the wifi option from the get go.

Merc5953 says:

Anyone know of these bulbs are compatible with the Smart Life app?

Bhavik says:

If the hub is connected to a router it should be accessible from an wireless AP connected to the router…even if the AP is far off..?

Humberto Mendes says:

Hi Brett, first of all thank you for the way you expresse your self in the vídeos, making it so much easier to understand.I would like to ask you to make a vídeo connecting Google home to a broadlink, and control your TV 100%, including channel zapping and all the rest. ON and Off is to easy. 🙂 Hope to see it ASAP. Regards from Portugal and keep on the good work. By the way if you don´t know where Portugal is, ask Google 🙂

Peter Randall says:

Hi Brett! Great video, could you tell me if the sengled hub is compatible with other brand of bulbs?

Michael Raduazzo says:

Great videos. I’m a newbie to the smart home world. Can you PLEASE post a video on how anything (could be lightbulbs) interface with alexa. For example, I connect the lightbulb to smartthings and connect alexa to smart things but how do I then control the ligthbulbs from Alexa. Sorry for the rant. I’m clearly a tech idiot. Look forward to your response. 🙂

Emanuel Perry says:

Sorry Bro.

Tika Anderson says:

I stumbled across your channel looking for videos on these bulbs, definitely swayed me to buy!

Karol B Hernandez says:

Can you control other stuff with the hub

Joe Dwyer says:

Do you know if these bulbs can be used in enclosed light fixtures? I know Hue lights have a recommendation to not use in an enclosed fixture

Touran Touring says:

OK so as you can tell I’m using you as my go to guy for smart home tech lol but as I live I UK we use b22 light bulbs so I’m now struggling to find bulbs, not because there in short demand but because I have no idea what brands are compatible with the smartthings hub and Google home mini, so again I ask for your wisdom and your guidance please sir (you are my obi-wan kenobi of the tech world) is there any website I could goto to this out?

michele parham says:

my son is on one end of the house i my on the other tried of yelling for him to come here can you help me set up on google home mini to call him

Emanuel Perry says:

1080p my ass!

Merc5953 says:

Hey Brett, I saw your video, got excited about this being a very affordable means of smart lighting for me and got the hub kit and two extra bulbs. However, after getting them and rewatching your video I just realized that you said it’ll work with Google home if you using the smartthings hub pretty much if I’m interpreting the right way. Basically what I’m getting at is could I get these to work thru Google Home by way of the Smart Life app?

Nerd V.S. World says:

do they only sell them with the “white bulbs”?

Gregg G. says:

Do you know if the SmartThings hub is able to update the firmware of the Sengled bulbs or would I need the Sengled hub for that? (I already use 16 Sengled bulbs at home with the Echo Plus as the hub, but the Plus is lacking in some areas)

Andrew Teo says:

Hi Brett, this is my first time here. Very useful videos, thank you! I was looking at buying the Sengled Starter Kit but wasn’t sure till I watched your video! I have SUBSCRIBED to your videos. One question which may make me look stupid. Can I control these LED bulbs remotely outside home (or anywhere in the world) or can I only do it while at home? Please answer soon as I am about to purchase the Sengled Starter Kit with 4 LED bulbs.

Luis Gatica says:

Hi Bret, nice review… just one question, it is posible to conect other zigbee devices to the Hub?? Like a smart switch (zigbee) or a motion sensor zigbee, blind control, etc… ???

michele parham says:

i watch your video love it i buy two google home mini for my bedroom and son room thanks i have set them up let but going too

DragX Gaming says:

If i have homeassistant can I use these lights without a hub and control them from my phone?

Serguei Oussov says:

Hi Brett,
Thanks for the video!
Question: in order for those light bulbs to be working hard wired swich has to be on all the time?

Wilbert Perez says:

Hey I got the sengled kit from you recommendation .How would I create a 2.4ghz conection? I have a regular wifi modem.

Stephen De La Rosa says:

Very helpful. I picked up a Smartthings link for my Nvidia Shield TV. I also have Google Home/Minis all over the house. Will these light work via Google Assistant and the Smartthings link while Shield TV is off? Your videos are very helpful!

BrianHN says:

does it work with google home mini?

Luke DiCosimo says:

Can these be setup for the sengled wake up function is using a smartthings hub?

Prabhu Ramachandran says:

Hi Brett, your video are great and help. Question for you, Do Philips hue bulb support in Sengled hub??

Jonathan Moore says:

What’s the best-priced RGB bulb?

Siraj Rasul says:

Hi Brett your videos are very help full, can you post some videos related door automated locks, Thank you

Ok says:

Could i connect it w google home mini?

Rupesh 033 says:

Thanks buddy for the informative video but it’s almost 2018 and NOBODY uses a hub based home automation. Best to spend extra money for a wifi version. There are a whole lot more different wifi products than hub based. So go with wifi.

Julie Noriega says:

Hi Brett! Do we need to have a Samsung Smart Things Hub for this to work with Google Assistant?

MsAMJ LLC says:

My apologies if this has been answered (I looked quickly). Now…Because I have both bulbs and plugs currently that do NOT require a hub, if I were to purchase this starter set, is the included hub all I need to use with my Echo devices?
