Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buy these ones – they work! I had a bit of a bad start with TCP bulbs as the first ones I bought wouldn't connect. I took it back for a replacement and it connected. So what's happening then? Firstly, you need to make sure your Wi-Fi is 2,4Ghz or at least that your router can have two wifi networks – One 5Ghz, the other 2.4Ghz which these bulbs will only work with. With that sorted, the bulbs need to 'blink' on and off for the first stage of set up with your Wi-Fi. If they don't as some of mine haven't, they need to be reset. This is done by turning the bulb off for 10 seconds, the turn on-off-on-off-on (no more than 2 seconds per switch eg: on-2secs, off 2-secs). If the bulb starts blinking you can start the connection process. If it doesn't try this process in another light fitting near the router if possible – otherwise you may need to get a replacement. It's definitely worth persevering through, once connected they work great with Google Home. I have three in my living room – one main light and 2 wall lights. I'm just trying to work out how to ask Google Home to turn them all on at the same time in one command, rather than 3. I've also bought the ones that change colour, all the bulbs can be controlled by TCP's app too – for the colour changing ones this is incredibly useful. Overall I'm pleased with all of my TCP bulbs – they are cheap and seem to last, the only problem I have had is with some not being able to be reset so you can connect them, which is why I've ended up taking them back for replacements. It's definitely worth persevering with them though!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright light Easy to set up, but had to wait around 30 secs before it started flashing. So far good. Reliability, ask me in 10 years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart bulbs connected. A set of TCP smart bulbs to fit in the hall and landing. Minimal instructions but better details on the app! Took a while to disable 5ghz network to allow 2.4ghz to connect the bulb to the hub. Once this settled down the app worked as expected. Linking to Google Home and Alexa also took time but again eventually the app worked and allowed control by this method. A pity they aren't 14w as other reviewers have said. Other than that I would recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value. I read all of the reviews across various cap fitting and almost didn't buy these bulbs/sockets as a result. Decided to see for myself in the end and really pleased that I did as I think for the price of them compared to some others they are excellent. The app is a straightforward download and register using an email address only. You then add the devices (bulbs, sockets etc) one by one. Once added you can tag them with locations (living room, kitchen etc) and name them (small lamp, big lamp, TV etc). The app allows you to easily switch each of the devices on or off and the bulbs are also dimmable! You can apply schedules (timer) to each and you can share access with anyone you choose. The devices are operable from inside your home and also remotely should you be away. Oh and the app is compatible with Google home app so you can link them and just use Google home app rather than the tcp app once set up if that's your preference. It says it's compatible with others too but I've not tried those. I've seen some other products that do similar but some of these require additional purchases to make some of these features possible. Point to note: some of the other reviews mentioned difficulty in set up. I experienced this too at first but upon investigation I realised that the devices are only compatible with 2.4gz WiFi and not 5ghz. This issue was quickly resolved by logging into my router (virgin) and disabling the 5ghz element. Having done so the devices connected easily. Final point to note, some reported not being able to get the bulbs to flash during set up. I set 5 bulbs up, most flashed themselves upon first install but the odd one didn't and was a little fiddly... I just followed the steps set out switching on/off/on/off and on again. Note you need to pause a few seconds after the final switching on to allow the bulb to start to blink. If it doesn't just follow the steps again. It could be a little easier if there was a switch on the bulb neck to press and hold for 5 secs as there is with the socket but not the end if the world and defo shouldn't put people off buying. Summary these are great and couldn't be easier to use once set up.

Electricity

Hi, the fact that the switch is on all the time for the bulb and I have to control it through voice control or app does that mean it’s draining more electricity then others as the switch is always on, please explain. Thanks
Asked by: 007Maz

Can these be used by voice activation with alexa? For example " alexa ,turn on lamp" or "alexa dim light by 5%"

If I have abulb in my shed can I operate it on my app from the house there's no WiFi in the shed thanks

Asked by: Jclamp
Not sure this bulb might fare well in the potentially damp atmosphere of a shed? That aside , if your home Wi-fi signal doesn’t reach your shed, then no, it won’t work. It needs a wi fi signal. You can enable Wi-fi hot spot broadcasting on your phone maybe to give it a WiFi signal? Or try relocating your router inside the house to be nearer to the shed so that the router signal reaches the shed, or alternatively a Wi-fi extender/ booster might get the signal to the shed. To do the latter, swap out a socket outlet indoors (that is located as near to the shed as possible) with a Wi-fi extender socket . Signal might then reach the shed. You’ll also have Wi-fi in the garden too as a bonus. Screwfix sell an extender socket - https://www.screwfix.com/p/lap-13a-2-gang-sp-switched-wi-fi-extender-2-1a-1-outlet-usb-charger-white/988fv Or just simply carry on using the light switch you already have to turn the light bulb in the shed on and off. Much cheaper and less faff.
