@MehnofLaMehncha One in my basement above my work bench. I have a speaker dock there I bought off Meh but it isn’t bluetooth and is a pain, so I figure this speaker will be perfect. Might try one in my garage too IF it is loud enough. If not i’ll give one out. Hard to beat at $7.50 each I’d say if they work half as good as I’m hoping.
I skipped the light fandango- always wondered what that meant. Never dreamt that the answer would be here today. Yup, it all makes sense now. A Tuesday 2for1 shitty ass overgrown Christmas bulb attached to a repurposed speaker taken from a RAZR Flip phone and run by an app created by some fucktard. Yes, I truly did skip the light fandango, and I’m glad I did. This crazy bitch even did some cartwheels she was so excited she skipped this deal!
@Felyne I believe that is for LEDs that can only display one color temperature, such as 5600K or 6000K, which is bright “white” light, similar to sunlight, but has the blue tint. I’m not sure about these bulbs, but my Hue bulbs can change color temperature down really low and be more like candle light, which is what I use in the evening to get rid of any blue light that has also been shown to stop production of melatonin which keeps you awake at night.
A seriously flawed implementation of an idea of questionable utility. Probably the mehest offering since Bagbowls and RoboSmasherz - you’ve out-meh’d yourselves this time (if that even makes sense). All that aside, the thought of having those lights blinking in beat to obnoxiously loud Christmas tunes is sooo compelling. Especially if you can put it in a hard to reach socket… I’ll probably wait until they are sold out before I decide to buy.
I bought the Awox Striimlight bluetooth lights several months ago and I bought these last week. I got these yesterday. The light is bright, contrary to the video. I initially used Google playstore and then the scanned the QR code on the box to find an app. Don’t bother! When I looked back at the details Meh suggested the best app for android which is iLight. Thanks Meh! I wish these had a committed remote like the Striimlight ones, but I am using a side phone as the remote. I still can’t get the Awox lights to work with an app…any suggestions?
These things rock! I was expecting the very worst, and I’m surprisingly happy. The iPhone app does what it should, and the light connected quickly. I was worried the light bulb would be reliant on the app to play music but it is not. Shows up like any other Bluetooth speaker would, and you can play music from any player directly to it without the gimicky app.
The range on this thing is insane! Goes through walls and from 1st to 2nd floor without skipping a beat.
I plan to keep 1 over my basement work bench, and 1 in my garage.
@anneburdge I thought I had the same problem. I’m using IOS, you don’t say what you are using. You must have bluetooth connected since the sound works. You have to hit the Bluetooth Conn (on the left hamburger menu) first. Then hit search and when the Sun Beats shows up on top, select it. Then the light will work. Good Luck.
My bulb lights up, but I can’t get the app that you scan on the box to find the bulb. Nor can I get the one from SunBeats site to work either. I have Android, running Nougat 7.1 anyone get these working?
got these today and grabbed the unofficial app. seems to work just fine. these things are kind of fun. also like the fact they’re bluetooth. i assume you all will take them to people’s houses, swap out a bulb when they’re not looking and then proceed to scare the shit out of them? no? just me? carry on then.
one weird thing i’ve found is that when the music is playing, if i go to the camera and try to record a video, the audio cuts out until i stop the recording. anyone else getting this?
@RiotDemon but the phone isn’t the one making the noise though. i guess technically it is. maybe it just doesn’t know the bt audio gateway is connected and is just assuming the sound is playing through its own speakers. stupid phone.
@carl669 I looked into it a little bit. If you are using music player that stays in your notification bar, just pause it, start recording, then pull down and hit play on the app in the notification tray.
