Thanks Freddy, Carl  :)

I have the smart bulb in the outside light on a more Christmassy look now, got it cycling through all the colours, it changes colour every second.

Thought this was interesting and relevant here. Feel free to move it elsewhere and maybe link from here.

How to run your LED lights cool and more efficient and last longer.

And how to hack your standard lamp.

I do like this chaps videos, he speaks my language and educates us at the same time, very cool  8)

Just a foot note, you do seem to get what you pay for when it comes to LED bulbs and I personally like the Alexa smart dimmable bulbs, hardly ever run them at 100% they seem perfectly good enough at about 50% and should last a lot longer.

Today I spent a bit of time making the LED lights on my garage smart, now I have them set on a timer and can turn them on and off when in the house or out using the smart phone, controlled with Alexa of course  :D

Took a pic this evening, they are really bright and give a lovely blue and white light.

Those look cool :)

I can't quite make out what all the lights to the left are, like Christmas lights. Are they on a gate?

They are a string on LED solar garden lights on a bit of fence to the side of the gate, we have them on the other side of the garden too, quite impressive actually, only a small solar panel but stay illuminated all night.
