I’ve just stumbled upon “H1007 Smart E27 Bulb Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker” on GeekBuying. It’s a smart Bluetooth 4.0 RGB LED E27 light bulb that also include a speaker, and sells for $22.59 shipped. I find it’s a good idea, and after looking for other models, I’ve found the $99 Twist light, as well as a much cheaper “OY-QP-BM13” model on eBay going for $15.99.
I’ll look at (HZ-)H1007 specifications first:
- Light Bulb
- 5W; adjustable RGBW; 330 Lumens; Color temp: 6500K
- Screw Type – E27/E26
- Connectivity – Bluetooth 4.0 LE up to 20 meters range
- Audio – 3W amplifier; 3D surround audio
- Voltage – 100 to 240V 50/60Hz
- Dimensions – 72 mm diameter x 136 mm length
- Weight – 146 grams
The body of the light bulb is available in white, red, golden, and blue, and it ships with a user’s manual in English and Chinese. I could not find the app on GeekBuying, but after a quick search I found a GearBest video showing how it works, and also discovered they sell it for $15.99.
The app is called Hlight and works for Android 4.3+ and iOS 4.0 or greater. Unfortunately, the reviews of the app on the Google Play Store are mostly negative with people complaining that the app does not work anymore, or pairing issues. The sound quality did not feel that good in the video either, and some people mentioned the light is a bit dim.
The “eBay” model should be brighter since it’s supposed to emit 800-840 lumens with a 6W white LED, and 3W RGB LED. It ships with its own basic remote, and Bluetooth range is said to be 5 to 10 meters. There’s very little information about the light bulb on the web, and I could not find the app.
