freitasm: Philips Hue, it's now being released in New Zealand retail.


Philips Hue has some nice features.  Heres a comparison chart that Jon00 has created between Philips Hue and LimitlessLED RGB and LimitlessLED Dual White.   As RGB LED technology gets cheaper and brighter, we are working with our OEM manufacturer to design a new brighter RGB+W LED bulb, it will still be 1way 2.4Ghz control, it will contain dedicated White Samsung LED chips, and more rgb zones.

Will the new one be able to be set to have a definiate power on state? The problem I have with the ones I have, is if I turn them off or dim them with the remote/app, there is no way to get them back on from the wall switch. without a wall switch replacement it makes it pretty annoying for the room lights.

Also will the new RGB+W lamp still use PWM dimming or will it get an upgrade to constant current?

You can get the LED bulbs to turn back On using the wall switch alone, even if turned off by the remote, but yes it keeps the same brightness and color. some people rave that its the best feature ever,  some people wish it went back to full brightness by default.  needs to be a user configurable setting to satisfy everyone I think.  It would be even better if you can set the default color and brightness, or set each bulb to use last color only, or set to use last brightness only.  I'll put it on the list for possible future enhancements.

thanks for the great feedback.

Make a standard wall plate sized remote to put in the flushbox that the swich would vacate and it would be a non-issue ;)

You could use any existing smart switch to do that, such as Zwave, zigbee, or cbus wall switch to send a UDP command to the LimitlessLED light. Most zwave, zigbee, cbus wall switches are in excess of $120 to $320 though.   If you want to buy 1000qty of wall plate sized remotes, I can make you some for $9 :)

Hey guys, I didn't make it very clear that there are two independent brightness settings in the LimitlessLED RGB color lightbulb,  one brightness memory setting for the White Mode, and a separate brightness memory setting for the RGB colors. 

So even if you turned the white mode all the way to full brightness, does not mean that the color is turned all the way up to full brightness.  By default the color bulbs come with RGB White Mode at full brightness, and color at half brightness level.



Cheers,
Hamish.

Hello,

My flatmates given me an RGB lamp but its still on his base.  I've added it to my base and we can now both control it.  How do I un-enroll it from his base?

Thanks

Chris

I think to unpair you have to unpower the bulb first (wait at least a few seconds), then power it on and straight away hold the speed down command for 9 seconds. It will flash white a few times. (Similar to pairing, but for 9sec instead of 3sec).

Yup that seemed to remove all pairings.

And it was the up that did it not down

Yep to unpair,  you just press the S+ button for Color LED fast 5 times, after wall switch on..  or group-On button for White LED fast 5 times, after wall switch on.

Wrong answer Harmish.

Unpairing a colorbulb is LONG press S+ after power was switched on.



Pairing a color bulb is SHORT press S+ after power.

Yeah, same thing, but true thats probably easier, the Press and Hold on the remote pulsates the command across the air really repetitively, and the bulb will see it quickly pressed 5 times.  Just like you press and hold the brightness down, it continuously goes down multiple times.
