  1. Actually i went to buy Genio RGB light bulb. But upon reaching Harvey Norman in a suburb of Melbourne, a sales representative saw me and thought of helping me out with whatever i wanted. I asked him to show me the genio smart bulb which was about $15 AUD. He took me towards the table where all these smart bilbs are. Soo he showed me the philips, lifx and etc. but he didnot have the genio. I was about to leave but he said he could give me a rgb light bulb which is in comparison with philips hue light bulb. And the price will be around $28 AUD. Thinking i might get a really good product and also i have a lenovo smart clock with google assistant built in it will be perfect as this GE IMAGINE rgb light bulb he showed me only uses google assistant to work. But what i was not told that it only works with a fucking google mini or nest product. Also it wont wake up slowly light with alarm (wake up light command) nor will it slowly dim the light till it goes off (sleep my light command). It wont do anything else except turning on and changing colour with brightness. Theres nothing else i can do with these stupid lights. Please dont ever buy these stupid lights which are worthless And really not worth any penny. They are not compatable with any other product neither with alexa. They only understand few simple commands. I am really sick of these light bulbs and they were really expencive than other simple light bulbs. I would rather get a simple white bulb than spending even a penny on these light bulbs by GE IMAGINE.

    Trust me dont buy these lights they are wirthless get any other brand and make sure you get an app with the bulb to be able to pair the light.
