Ratings and Reviews
I don’t usually write reviews unless something is really amiss. In this case, I’m writing because of how thoroughly impressed I am! I love all of the options for customization. I’ve used several ‘smart’ lights over the years, each with their own app, and the quality of those apps is usually pretty bad, which is why this one stands out. It’s intuitive! It doesn’t crash every five seconds! And it’s not a struggle to reconnect to the lights when you want to change their settings. My favorite aspect is that you can choose different light settings depending on how many times you flip a switch. We’ve gone back to the store twice just to get more bulbs to put around the house. The *only* possible improvement I can think of would be having more customizable dynamic lighting options (i.e. if you could pick a few colors for it to cycle through), but that’s a really small thing compared to everything you *can* do.
Update to the New App
Using this app only to integrate with Alexa and the required Skill. I’ve used one Wiz bulb for over a year now (others are Hue bulbs) and had no problems until a few weeks ago when it stopped responding to Alexa commands. I received a notification through the Alexa app stating basically that the account verification period had expired and needed to be renewed. The device would show “Server Unresponsive” as a result. I opened the Wiz app and instantly got a notification that there was a new app that Wiz switched to and that I must download and migrate my account over. Migration occurred automatically upon opening the new app. Followed the steps and got logged into the new app. Deleted the old app. Had to Re-integrate back to my account in the settings menu of the Wiz app and then re-installed the Wiz skill back into the Alexa app. Finally, the Wiz Skill kept prompting me to enter a six digit pin that was supposedly generated in the Wiz App settings under Integration, however no pin is presented as I’m assuming the new app no longer uses this method of verification. The light ends up working even without a PIN number so I’m now running smoothly again. I think the Wiz skill could be updated.
It's ok on the old version
I have never migrated to the new version but it seems like there are more negative reviews from people using the newer version. I do have issues every now and then with bulbs dropping a signal and having to repair, but that's usually it. and one other issue I've noticed is that the app does not adjust for daylight savings time. So I usually have to go in and adjust the time frames for the outdoor bulbs I have on a schedule, so that's just a little bit annoying. I have the same issue as others where the App will tell me I'm not connected to the correct Wi-Fi, but if I opt to pair manually it usually works for me. The bulbs themselves are amazing, I am super picky about lighting, so I love being able to adjust the Tone, brightness, and literally every color in the rainbow! The app could use some work though, it would be nice if things worked a little smoother and the signal wasn't dropped as frequently. I understand the bulbs are a newer concept, so it probably just takes some time to perfect this kind of application but I hope they work out the bugs because they'll definitely get an update of five stars from me if they do!
