I can't even seem to find these in Australia, let alone New Zealand!

I'm trying to avoid buying WiFi bulbs to keep all of them running off Zigbee.

I picked one up in Germany at the beginning of the year.   Wish I'd bought more.  Looks good - haven't attempted the bluetooth, just connected to hub.  This one from ebay is like the one I got  and also comes from Germany.  Prepared to roll the dice?

I predict it'll be ages before they are available in NZ. It took forever for the new generation of the colour bulbs to be sold here. I think it's all the regulatory rubbish they need to go through.
