Re-setting your GE Smart Bulb in JUST ONLY 14 Steps???
« on: October 02, 2019, 03:51:11 pm »
I found this quite amusing If not totally STUPID, And they call this a SMART BULB???

Believe it or not, this video is for REAL.

I can't believe they even had the "GUTS" to make this video, Let alone that they even released it.

WOW is all I can say.

They call it their, "Smart Tips for Our Smart Products", at the very end of their video.

You just can't make up this kind of "crap".

It reminds me of Microsoft Windows 10, (jumping through hoops and hurdles), updates, and upgrades. heheheh.

For everyones amusement.

Please enjoy the STUPIDITY of this as much as i did.

Regards, The Omen

LOL, that's easy to remember ???

Wouldn't simply having a 'reset' pinhole/button be easier.

Turn on for eight seconds, turn off for two seconds, at least thirty times in that order. Laughed my ears off. Holy cow pats who the hell in their right mind would wanna buy these? As much as I like technology, this is just stupidly funny. :))

Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)

Yeah, I don't get IoT either .. let's all bung loads of internet connected devices in our homes/cars/offices/bedrooms/etc. that are one-off payment and so cheap that there's zero chance of security support/patches.

(and have the cheek to call them SMART ::))

[EDIT]

And WTF is a "smart" lightbulb anyway .. the damn things are either ON or OFF, not a complex set of choices really, how "smart" do they need to be ?
(what was wrong with the old physical timers if you wanted that functionality ?)

I've installed motion sensor switches because no one turns the lights off when leaving the rooms they were in.
