i have 12 of these bulbs. it is a pain to pair them with home kit one at a time. was thinking of replacing 25 downlights in my home with lifx downlights, but to pair each of them???? sheesh!

Now to wait for the reviews to see if it’s better than Hue. Light is brighter, better colors, no hub, and now HomeKit. The only negative I’ve read is these bulbs don’t always stay connected but the Hue hub is solid.
