BR30 Un-Usable

I just bought 4 BR30s, installed them and updated the firmware.

However, they mostly only display a green color. Selecting white will make them green, selecting red or purple will make them a VERY dim red or purple, even at 100%. Any other color I select will make them green. Even 100% green is not that bright.

What’s going on?

That is really odd behavior. I have three BR30 bulbs that have the full range of color and brightness.

What app version and firmware is running? Are they grouped?

The bulb firmware is and yes they are grouped. The app version is 2.40.0 (15).

I am currently running the Beta Firmware that is being tested in this thread.

It does appear you have the most up to date iOS app.

Ungrouped the bulbs and test to see if it still exhibits the same behavior.

I solved the problem. I remember seeing somewhere that the regular color bulbs could not be used on a dimmer switch, but I did not see that on the product page for the BR30s.
My BR30s were on a dimmer, so I swapped it out for a regular switch and they work fine now.

I’m glad you got it fixed! And also thank you for sharing why it wasn’t working and what fixed it. I will keep that in the data banks if it comes up again!
