Where did you purchase it from and do you need a controller for these bulbs. Also how is the brightness of the bulb. Thanks in advance.

Got it from gearbest and received in less than a week. Gearbest uses GATI courier to ship. No separate controller needed for this. Just need to enable yeelight skills. Brightness is less only... It cannot replace our regular tube lights. We can use as night lamp or decorative lamps during party. It also has music mode(not in alexa) and the light color changes based on the music played as like in parties. Overall i liked it.

Today i also installed sonoff switches and converted all existing tube lights to smart devices all works well with alexa.

I think sonoff switches are the cheapest way to convert existing devices to smart devices. Each switch costs around 400rs only.

Only problem with these devices are, they are connected to their (vendor servers). I'm not sure why these just can't restricted to internal LAN. Because these devices are controlled by their servers, we can also turn on /off from anywhere using internet.
