Next on my list for smart home testing and integration is the MOCREO RGB Smart Light Bulb
This bulb came in at a bargain price of $19.99 (look out for the $3 coupon when ordering online via Amazon!) which is cheap compared to the alternative color smart bulbs like Philips Hue that ring in at around $49.
The Moreco?RGB LED Smart Light bulb does not require a hub to be controlled.? You can use the application that is supplied with the bulb called Magic Home – this can be installed in seconds simply by scanning the QR code that is supplied in the small, brief user guide.? The bulb will work with Amazon’s Alexa and with Google Assistant controllers.? For the testing here I have added the bulb to my existing setup on Alexa, I’ll update later with experiences when integrating with Google Assistant/Home.
I’ve documented the installation process below to give you an idea as to how easy these smart bulbs are to get configured and online.? As with the Moreco?Mini Smart?plug this device came online and was working within a few minutes with no issues at all.
The instruction guide had a QR code that took me right to the website where I could download iPhone or Android apps
I downloaded the iPhone app and then registered a new user account.? You will be prompted to allow the app to send you notifications – select your preference.
To set up the new light simply follow the prompts.? You will have to go into your Settings, Wifi and find the bulb which will be broadcasting on its own WIFI network.? Connect to the LEDnetxxx network and then go back into the application to continue your setup.
Once the app sees that you are connected to it you will be prompted to select your home network from the list provided – note the bulb will only see your 2.4Ghz networks!
Select your network and then enter the correct password information.? You will then be prompted to connect back to your home network to finish the installation process.? The bulb should turn green once the setup is complete, you can then name the bulb and start changing colors, tones, etc.
Next step is to connect your new Smart Bulb to Alexa!? Load up the Alexa app and then choose Skills from the menu.? Search for the Magic Home skill and choose Enable.
Enter the same account information that you used initially to setup the bulb within the smartphone app.
Once successfully installed and linked Alexa will be set to Discover Devices and your new smart bulb will be online and able to be controlled via Alexa
