Ratings and Reviews
Nice set up for inexperienced users
I received this product complimentary for testing purposes. I followed all the directions on first set-up. I made sure my bulbs were less then 40 ft apart. The instructions were very descriptive to follow. I appreciated the labeling of the lights, being able edit and group the lights together or separate. The editing of the lights made it quite easy to figure out which one was being edited with the lights blinking, I especially like that feature and made it helpful to follow overall. I do like the back button during trying to sync the WiFi to the bulbs. When I entered the description of my WiFi it didn’t do a full search of my WiFi until I hit the back button to search. Once I got the WiFi and Bluetooth together set-up it was simple to change the colors and add other features. I liked the guidelines, buttons and easy instructions to follow. Great reminders to follow along the way as well such as, making sure the bulbs are connected to WiFi. Also, the mention of Bluetooth and WiFi on your phone matches the WiFi on the app is helpful as well. One thing I would change, is in the area of the setting or location I would add or make a different color to the “+” (upper right hand corner) when trying to update the setting, it is the same color as the screen, which made it challenging to see. Once my settings, labels WiFi and Bluetooth were all connected, set up of light bulbs was simple to change as well.

Love this app!
I did you received this product for free or complimentary for testing purposes in exchange for my honest opinion. I absolutely love this app almost as much as I love the bulbs themselves lol. It’s so easy and simple to use and you know those apps that take forever to come up like your remote for your tv apps etc? Yeah this doesn’t which is great. It really organized and I like how you can add all of your GE smart items and name each room along with assigning a picture each rooms profile if you’d like. You can turn the lights on and off from the app as well as change colors, dim brightness etc. the only thing I will say though is make sure your spouse/kids whomever has access to your lights when your not around has this downloaded on their phones because my husband went into our bedroom and attempted to turn on the light only to find it was already on but I had dimmed to black on the app itself and he had to txt me to turn it on from my phone cause I was the only one who the app downloaded on my phone at the time. Thankfully I was outside waiting in the car because I’m not sure if the app can be used really far away like if you’re at someone else’s place, I am not sure if the app can be used but I’ll have to rest it out and update later. Everything else is great and I’ll be buying more GE products soon!

User Friendly & Awesome
I received two GE Cync lightbulbs complimentary for testing purposes. The Cync app is very user friendly. The process of setting up the light bulbs that I had received was very easy and the directions were very straightforward. For example, the light bulb that you are setting up will 'blink' and the app will walk you through the process of setting them up, one lightbulb at a time. I had one small issue where the firmware for the lightbulbs failed to update on the first try; however, it worked on the second go. I like that you can really customize the app to make it more personal to you through being able to name things, set custom photos, set schedules, etc. You can also save favorite colors as well. I think that it's neat that you can have multiple 'scenes' with the option of creating a schedule for each. For example, you could have the lightbulbs turn on when you are waking up and have them turn off when you are going to bed. I also think that it's neat that you can use Alexa, Google Home, and/or HomeKit/Siri to configure the lightbulbs as well. I would suggest having the option to customize the colors/brightness of the lightbulbs when you are creating a new scene vs creating one and then having to go back to the home screen to do so. Overall, the app works well and is user friendly. I would recommend it to a friend!
