This is a bulb review! Not the most exciting gadget or new technology in a bulb, or is it! This is one product I won’t be keeping, why? Already every visitor that has looked at this bulb has said WOW I want it. Someone will just take it or I will perhaps give it to one, Visitors have looked how simple to use,setup and the savingas compared to a standard bulb.

(Reduce energy use up to 80%) The dimmable option was also a hit. Overview  – Sonoff B1 is white and colourambiance dimmable LED bulb with E27 screw base. The dimming led lamp can be dimmed or brighten via iOS/Android App. With the App, users can select White, then the light will become white ambiance, they can set colourtemperaturefrom cold to warm and change the brightness from 1%-100%.If they select colour,they can change colour spectrum of the RGB bulbs to favourite atmosphere.

UNBOXING

 

There are four available scenes for the dimming LED bulb: rest, reading, party and casual. The Sonoff B1 E27 colourLED bulb is compatible with Amazon Alexa (Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Tap). Users can ask Alexa to dim or brighten, or adjust the coloursof the led light bulb.

I did not have the E27 screw baseon my lighting, but picked up a BNC to E27 screw base adapter easily and cheaply.
