Does anyone know if the Wyze color bulb can be used for a swimming pool light?

Can the Wyze color bulb used for a swimming pool light?

I would think not. Swimming pool lights are very specifically rated for underwater use. I would be certain that the Wyze color bulb would not have that rating. The other problem is that water attenuates radio signals really well - especially at near 2.4 GHz. I would be surprised if your WiFi would get through a couple feet of water.


The Wyze Bulb Color is rated for use in damp locations, underwater is a lot more than damp and as @K6CCC points out there is a real good chance you will not get WiFi there.


Thanks for your input, explanation makes a lot of sense.

Great question. Our pool light is about 30 inches below the surface. It is in a waterproof housing. i don’t think it has a bulb socket - if you have your pool drained enough to do a pool light swap out, I suggest getting something sealed tight. Most Pool shops sell LED lights that are bright, clear, and amazing. I think I’d avoid anything with a bulb socket on it underwater in 2023.
But if you want to, I do see why you would want to use a wyze color. I don’t think it would be bright enough, frankly. Most pool bulbs are 300 watts or similar these days. One that changes colors is about $300 USD
