Connected Cree LED Bulb review: A super-cheap ZigBee solution

Christopher Null | Oct. 31, 2016
Cree’s smart bulbs work with a variety of smart-home hubs, but that means Cree has a lot less control over the user experience.

The downside of the Cree bulb is that the light isn’t tunable at all. It’s preset to 2700K, a typical incandescent temperature. Again, bulbs can be dimmed and powered on or off via a third-party app and hub, but that’s the extent of it.

The bottom line: These bulbs are suitable exclusively for smart-home enthusiasts who don’t care what their bulbs look like, don’t already have a smart lighting setup, and who have limited tuning needs.
