gchiu:

 

I found another use for a spare rgbw bulb. I grab the flickelectric spot price and turn the colour of the bulb to reflect the price. So, blue is cheap, and red is expensive.  And I then know what my power cost currently is without using their app.

 

I think the bulb I have is 9W, and I should get something of less Wattage so as not to waste power.

 

 

They are noway near 9w when on RGB without adding in white. I think I saw about 1.4 when I measured it.

 

I guess the red is getting a workout for you at the moment with flicks pricing going insane.

Good to know about the Wattage.  This is one of the older bulbs which I don't think has a separate white.

 

And it's a nice blue colour at present while the price is 18c per kWh.

Anyone here using the downlights and wouldn't mind sharing some photos or videos of what they look like in action?

Do any of you have one of these older WiFi bridges kicking around?

 

 

Mine died and I upgraded to one of the newer ones, but none of my home automation stuff works with the newer bridge.

If you get stuck, you can always build your own - https://blog.christophermullins.com/2017/02/11/milight-wifi-gateway-emulator-on-an-esp8266/ 

 

Just use the bin files from his github - https://github.com/sidoh/esp8266_milight_hub/releases

Hmm, tempted to buy one of those, been running the alexa integration via ha-bridge but this might tidy that up a bit
