Yeah. In the new LED world, there’s a lot of variation in bulb sizes, unfortunately. It’s not as standardized as it used to be with incandescents. A15 and A19 are supposed to refer to the dimensions of the “globe” of the bulb, but in the real world, so-called A19s can vary quite a lot. And higher-wattage LEDs generally need a bigger globe with LEDs, which wasn’t the case with incandescents. So a 100-watt-equivalent A19 bulb is usually bigger than the 60-watt-equivalent A19 bulb from the same brand, even though they should be the same according to the naming convention. I’ve run into the same annoyance.
In general, if the A19 is too big, an A15 should probably do the trick for you, but Wyze doesn’t offer that at this point.
Not to hurt Wyze feelings, regarding potential products such as an LED strip, but there are a couple good product lines out there.
There is the shelly rgbw2
You can control any RGBW strip, or led strings.
So cost is a matter of the strips/strings you use.
I for 1 use proprietary strips manufactured to my specs (I’ve been having manufactured spec LED lighting & importing for almost 14 years).
But you can buy dirt cheap strips out there too, in many formats.
Then there are SPI and addressable leds w on board chips to allow for all sort of special effects, 2811, 2812 are 2 I am most familiar with but there are quite a few newer variants too.
Those you can control down to the individual onboard led dies (similar the philips strips just far more robust control capable)
Yes, they work w alexa or google.
I don’t think they work w homekit, but you can check the shelly forum.
Judging by the sheer weight of the E19’s currently produced, I feel as though this request is far off. Dropping the same hardware into, say, an E12 wouldn’t be at all possible… I too would like to have a few different types of bulbs, but maybe targeting bulbs themselves isn’t the right approach? What if Wyze were to rethink what is currently on the market and produce bulb adapters that could handle the switching and wireless connectivity? Still I am surprised that there inst an RGB LED bulb yet, it seems pretty trivial as far as hardware goes, I am sure software is a different ballgame…
