All I get is a giant missing plugin area. Perhaps you should have a website instead of a single flash animation?

I need E14's for heaps of my table and pendant lamps, which is something limitless have not got as an option yet, I got some adapters off DX but they are too long and the top of the lamp sticks out of the table lamps and is too low in the pendant lamps.

Also, the RGB limitless is basically unusable unless its on a primary colour as it has such low frequency PWM dimming it makes the room look like its lit by an old TV or similar. They also cause weird artefacts when you try to use a camera under them.

The white ones also are PWM, but at a much higher frequency so its only noticeable on specular highlights on things that are shiny mostly.

Change to constant current and I will probably get more. The current flickery ones are headache inducing to be under, its worse than old line frequency fluros because its a hard flicker.

Cheers rich,

The RGBs are being created with White in between now, which are much more usable. I agree that the old ones were not though! with 40W equivalent average. The new ones I assure are better, and I will put up iformation when we have them in stock.

Pretty good pricing on the bulbs. I've been looking at this myself and have been tempted to bring some in through aliexpress, not just because of the wifi concept but it's cheaper than purchasing them locally just as a normal led bulb.

However I like to read review after review, so still undecided.

Can't wait for the new website to come up, are you doing the work yourself?

No, I have some help, and am looking at getting a bit more help soon. I've got some good marketing advice recently and I will be putting it all into place when the new site starts up. We are doing home starter packages that will interest you. Check out the half finished site at [http://www.wifilights.co.nz] and check out the banner with Home starter info. Ignore, the site layout for now, have just started it.

Site is a lot better. Well done. The images you have could probably use a slight touch up (logo and scroller) but otherwise looking good.

The new site makes me feel sick

That huge banner flying off to the side.  On the phone it isn't too bad, but on a 22 inch screen looks terrible.  Also you can see that the images have been badly cropped

You also use way to many different fonts

It is better than the first one

Pretty good package. Can I control them remotely via a website? Have been looking at some open source software that allows me to remote control devices over the internet just for fun :-)

YES, our wifi bridge can be controlled over the Internet or Home network by IP address and Port 50000. Each wifi bridge receiver is given its own IP address.

Each wifi bridge can control over 400+ light bulbs. Multiple wifi bridges can be used to control more groups of lights.

Developers, yes you can write your own custom software by sending a standard TCP or UDP network command to the bridge (192.168.1.100 or custom IP address) to control the brightness, color, switching, with just a few lines of code from your Windows, Mac, Android, Tablet, iPhone, or iPad. I'll make an area on the site where you can get sample applications, and code.

Looks really, cool, what kind of DIY installation is actually required?? Do they plug in and then you do the network setup, or is more complex??

That's pretty much it. I can even send you some really good instructions if you want to do it yourself

I had a look at both sites. I use a non-flash browser. The product detail is good but there is no information or examples about what the product can do for your customers. There is no reason to buy unless you already know the product well and are actively looking for it.

Good luck to you, the market is huge and it's a great service if you are able to provide the complete package needed. You have a long honeymoon ahead of the competition to look forward to and a good chance to establish a viable offering in this space.
