Jon from Australia had a great tip about mounting the Remotes to the wall...

 

My bathroom light was in the bathroom behind the hinge side of the door, ie a PITA to get to, but now I have a remote mounted outside the door.

I got some of these 3M Command Hanging Strips:

They work great to mount a remote on the wall.

The medium strips almost exactly fit the battery cover.  :)

ZollyMonsta: Any matching bulbs? (Bqyonet) ?



I couldn't find any B22 on there, but I did find these B22  1,794 Lumens! 27W, wow they look fairly ugly, but very functional. As LED gets better and better technology I bet we are going to surpass 2000 Lumens in a single normal looking bulb.

And I wonder if this bulb works with the OEM remote and wireless bridge.. Maybe not....

App just put a notification up and says things about service destroyed.
Makes the wifi indicator light up tho. Bit hopeless of an app really.

i wonder how the candle android app works since theres no way to directly set the brightness level through the API. you can only increase/decrease the level. So if one controller turns it all the way down (say at 10%) and the candle app thinks its 90%, what happens when you select 95%? (does it just go to 15% brigthness???)

this is one of my major issues with the bulbs. the fact that its just one way communication and you can't query the status/brightness level. hopefully they will improve them in the next model. still great for the price. just not perfect.
