I have always wanted to fill my house with philips hue bulbs. The music sync just looked like so much fun for gatherings and for the kids. We found govee in amazon and purchased 2 h6003 bulbs hoping they would stack up to the hue bulbs. THEY 100% DID. The colors were so bright, they hurt your eyes if you had the brightness all the way up. But there was a downside. At the time I wasn't aware that the h6003 were not wifi compatible. So the wife went online and found the h6004 (that could be wrong not the h6003 or the h6008) we got those and were excited to have wifi capable lights, that change color, were bright, and you could control with alexa. Problem was, the music sync feature disappeared. A quick call revealed that the h6004 does not support music sync, but the h6008 did it all. Fast forward a few days and the h6008 have arrived. They are wifi and Bluetooth, have music sync, and work with alexa. The kids love these and they really are very nice to have in the house. HOWEVER, these seems to have much dimmer colors. Even thought the h6003 hurt my eyes at a high brightness, I felt that they should have. Maybe that's the picky side of me, but I feel like I'd like to have full range of control. Also, while I very much enjoy the music sync, you have to put your phone next to a speaker. It would be very nice to see a bulb that connects, in the app, woth a music streaming service like pandora.
So here is the breakdown
-very very easy to install
-they do everything that you'd want your lights to do
-the kids love them
-music sync works well
-the colors just don't seem bright enough. That could just be my perception though.
-music sync could be more streamlined with a partner app
Govee Products rock. Plain and Simple. I am a knick-knack and gadget connoisseur. I have been an RGB fanboy forever. This brand has changed my life. Straight up.
Even though you can integrate this with the immersion kits as extensions I am using it to splash static color in my living room. I like having the option of having the integration for such a low price.
I have been needing to redo my room and I love blue/purple lights for when I need to relax and this does the job. The app has so many different colors and color settings. It’s a great buy I highly recommend!!
These are excellent lights and they are my go to when I want to make sure everything in my home can be activated by my phone. I love the color patterns and the intuitive design of the app. You can set timers on the lights and group them. Great product!
