Perhaps beyond the scope of this list, but I’ve become interested in lights that “follow the sun” to help in restoring the natural circadian rhythm. I’ve bought a sleep bulb that removes blue for reading at night and it seems to help. I then found the GE Sleep bulb which is doesn’t need a hub and appears to change throughout the day, if you use the GE app.
My sticking point is that one needs to create an account to use the app. This is a bluetooth item that will connect to my phone and I’m unclear why these companies continue to force us to “sign up”. I don’t have to create an account to use my mouse, keyboard or BT speaker - or even my car stereo.
It seems that the ones that work with HomeKit are more costly and require a hub (which also raises the price).
I realize my account complaint adds another level to my question, but what I’d really like to know is if there are any bulbs besides Phillips that do this that will work with HomeKit. It’s possible the technology isn’t completely there yet and more options will appear in the next few years.
I have my MPB Retina set to Night Shift as well as my phone. I think my phone was more warm (orange) at some point in the past. I tried f.lux for a few days and it was great, and then it kind of stopped working so I uninstalled it. Would like to try it again, but I’m not sure if f.lux should be not be used with Night Shift?
