Discovered on 2017-03-08

Use the power of the sun to light up your life with the PLAYBULB Solar Outdoor LED Lights. This portable lighting system connects to an app on your device to give you total customization. With a range of thousands of color options, the PLAYBULB Lights take just 8 hours of direct sunlight to last for a full 25 hours. In addition, these solar powered lights are totally water resistant with an IP68 rating. You can use them throughout your indoor and outdoor space and even have them floating in the pool during parties. Additionally, the PLAYBULB Lights come with attachable mono pods so you can secure them into the ground along walkways. With the PLAYBULB X app, you can control, sync, and add special effects for multiple lights simultaneously. Finally, the PLAYBULB Lights have smart technology to automatically turn on when it gets dark. The MIPOW team, creators of the PLAYBULB Smart Lighting launched the PLAYBULB Solar as the sequel of PLAYBULB Garden which was already a success on Kickstarter recently!

I have also doubled my pledge for 3 (i.e. $198 for 6); @Chris my garden lights didn't all work either. The app has improved recently but could still use work.
Sophie
Hi creator
Could you think about a more powerful light? I am still wondering if I need them as they really seem weak in terms of lumens so useless. I pledged for 6 by manually doubling the price but it indeeed is very expensive for a not bright at all light as we can see on the pictures. Can you help us being convinced? New in situation pictures, videos? Thanks.

@TONY > You can pledge for 5 pack now and during the survey, you can apply for a single pc extra.
Tony Herrero

Hesham

Jason Morrison
Can and will this product be integrated with nest home ?
Biadro
Why when you buy more,
the five pack.
does your price go up per unit?
Chris Mibus
@Chip Really sorry that your playbulb garden didn't work. I have been using mine every day for almost 2 years and they are still going strong they are great and add a really nice ambience for my back yard.
MIPOW USA
@Mark Rejhon: Thanks for your comments and suggestions. We will release our news and updates soon in the coming months regarding the API and product development. Thanks for supporting us in all the projects :)

MIPOW: Please add a battery-life or battery-voltage Bluetooth LE command to your PlayBulb Solar. This will help with battery health monitoring, and also allow hubs to turn off when below 30% battery (to allow 2000-charge cycle, or 5-year operation). Lithium batteries recharge many hundreds more times if I only rarely let it go below 30%. This will prevent dead Solar units after 1-2 years.

Programmers/Developers/Geeks We need an open source API for PlayBulb products. WHY: So we can create plugins for automation hubs. And achieve complex animations from computers (Bluetooth streaming, or change theme once every 15 or 30 minutes). I purchased a Bluetooth LE sniffer from Adafruit ( https://www.adafruit.com/product/2269 ) and am starting to kind of reverse-engineer the PlayBulb Bluetooth protocol. There are now instructions on reverse-engineering a Smart Bulb Bluetooth LE protocol here at https://learn.adafruit.com/reverse-engineering-a-bluetooth-low-energy-light-bulb/overview ....With the new software out there, it seems simple enough for an Intermediate Programmer. I have lots of PLAYBULB products and found out that the protocol is 2way. For some products (e.g. PlayBulb CANDLE) is even a way to turn on the white LED at the same time as the color LED, for undocumented color. And there is even a way to query if the light is ON or OFF, and what color it currently is. In theory it is possible to write a smarthome or homekit gateway that even also resets original PlayBulb Rainbow color after it has been switched off by a wall switch, by retransmitting last remembered color as soon as the bulb comes back on, etc. Sooooo MANY things can be done with the PlayBulb Bluetooth protocol.... including faster and slower flashing than permitted by PLAYBULB X App. I have determined there are a lot of undocumented PlayBulb commands. It will help MIPOW sell more product. Better apps can be created. Also hopefully MIPOW can help us ASAP (with partial info) to help us jumpstart this.

The quality of your solar product PLAYBULB garden was poor. Many users including myself found we had a useless unit that wouldn't charge. How will this product differ?
STEFANO PAGANI
No problem Sophie ;-)
Sophie
Sorry - Stefano with an F :-)
Sophie
Hi creator

MIPOW USA

STEFANO PAGANI
