The thing I don't like about this system is the limited flexibility of timers. As far as I can tell, you can only use one Smart Control setting at a time and that setting is the same for all of the bulbs you have chosen. To further clarify, I travel for work, so to make my home appear as if I am there when I'm not, I'd like to have a timer for some of my downstairs lights that turn off around 9pm and then have the upstairs ones remain on for a couple of more hours.
I think this is a software fix, and potentially an upgrade in the future with your existing components. I've had limited availability to add new bulbs as well. I haven't seen single ones at the hardware stores in my neighborhood and I don't need another multipack with a gateway or remote at this time.
But I think the company, to at least this offering is relatively new and solid in theory, so I'll happily come back and add stars as things evolve.
TCP has since removed the API without consulting the users, breaking SmartThings integration and every other system that talks to these, and making them completely useless. The update is pushed out automatically over the internet, so there's no way of opting out. You just have to take it. Now that it's broken, they're just incredibly overpriced LED bulbs. Do not buy if you were planning on using these with another system, attaching them to the web, or really doing anything with them other than turning them on and off with your phone through their crummy app. That is, until they remotely disable the Android app for security reasons.
The connected bulbs, even off, run very hot. They also make a loud tick every now and then - perhaps cooling and heating expansion.
Now it's 2015 and suddenly I can no longer access the gateway device locally. Now, when I try to access the gateway device on my LAN through a browser, I am redirected to some trial website by Greenwave Reality, the manufacturers of the TCP Connected system. It requires me to create an account and login through the internet to my local lighting gateway? When I saw the word "trial" in the URL, I suspect the company has updated the firmware and is forcing users to sign up for something or use it for a limited time trial. The FAQ on the TCP website has a question/answer about "What if my phone or tablet dies? Can I still turn on/off my lights?" The answer was yes, through a browser. Just point your browser to "/lighting" and it bring up the web interface. Not so anymore. You can't type in the IP and get to it either. All local connections are refused. The usefulness of this system is now very limited to me due to this change. I contacted TCP Connected support through email, but they have not replied.
I remember seeing this kit go on sale at Home Depot for $49.Read more ›
--UPDATE-- As of 07/04/2016, this product will not work AT ALL with your WiFi network. TCP should offer full refunds to their base of customers, and/or face a class action lawsuit for selling a product that they have deactivated and made useless. They will probably declare bankruptcy, and then re-open for business under a new name.
I believe it is unethical to sell this formerly very good system without fully disclosing this dramatic reduction in the value of the product.

Beware. TCP has discontinued support for remote access. Which means you can only control the lights when connected to a local network. Read morePublished 9 days ago by FireGT
