Did you turn off smart setup?
Did you split the 2.4/5ghz networks

Re: wifi bulb with bt hub 6, 2.4 & 5ghz

Hi there,

I found this below on Amazon, 

But I also tuned off 5ghz band first before trying it and when all my bulbs and plugs were connected I turned it back on.

DOES work with BT hub6 (smart hub). I ordered this bulb without reading the note which states this does not work with bthub6. Doh! But i was determined to find a way to make it work... i read a lot of reviews which said to go in to the hub manager and turn off 5ghz so i did that. But this alone didnt enavke the bulb to work. I figured out that once you turn off-on the bulb 3 times it flashes quick, then if you turn off and on again 3 times (so 6 in total) then it willl flash slow. Add the device in AP mode while flashing slow. Works 😄 so if you, like myself, bought the bulb before realising its "not compatible" with bt hub 6 then dont panic. It is possible.

 

It worked for me
