I bought a few of these for the boys bedrooms and they work well from the remotes that came with them.


Anyone had any luck communicating with these outside of the supplied remotes and app? e.g. home assistant or similar

Just wondering if anyone is using these with the app.  I've just put 3 (waiting on the 4th to come in stock) in the bedroom and having no joy setting up with the app.  I get as far as a login page with 2 fields saying 'please input username' and 'please input password'.  The username field has a mobile phone icon.  As far as I can tell from the userguide and youtube video this should be my wifi network name and password, but every time I hit 'login' it thinks for a couple of minutes or so, then doesn't do anything.  No error message, no success message, no minimising.


I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app and tried multiple times on a couple of bulbs.  The app doesn't get great reviews from everyone, but clearly others have got things up and running.


I'm hoping I'll be able to get it sorted and keep them.  I did get them on a bit of a whim thinking it would be nice to not have to widen the existing holes, which I'll have to do if I go to Hue (I have a Hue bridge).  And I like the idea of the full colour spectrum.
