Ledvance Lightify RGBW A19 review: Affordable smart lighting with a steep learning curve

Christopher Null | Oct. 17, 2016
You’ll find lots of form factors in the Ledvance Lightify collection, but getting the most out of them takes some effort.

Also of note: The bulb cannot be dimmed through a hard-wired switch, and it flickers badly if a dimmer is present at all on the circuit—even when that dimmer is at full power. Ledvance does sell its own external dimming switch ($30) that lets you control brightness and power wirelessly, without having to open the app.

All told, the Ledvance Lightify RGBW is a quite affordable bulb that has an ample collection of features. Whether you have the patience to dig into all of them is another question.
