I’m moving soon into a new home (new construction, Europe, Belgium) in which I will have around ~60 light bulbs (~40xGU10, ~10xE27, ~10xE14).
Ideally, I would like 60 Philips Hue with colors (all added via Zigbee2MQTT, no Philips Hub), but that’s a budget!
… so I ordered a Wiz color lightbulb for testing as they are really cheaper, and… well, the bulb is OK, but two defaults:
First, the fade-in/fade-out is really not as good as Hue’s ones. Not a deal-breaker though.
… but more importantly, it takes half a second to wake up the lightbulb, whereas the Hue feel instantaneous.
Is it because the bulb is WiFi vs Zigbee? Is there no way around it?
… and can anyone recommend some Hue alternatives without these defaults that would be cheaper than the Hues?
