What is the Cree® Connected LED Bulb?
The Cree® Connected LED bulb combines the great features of the Cree LED bulb with easy to use technology to allow you to control your lighting from anywhere. Enabled by the Wink Hub / Wink Hub 2 or any Zigbee certified hub, these bulbs can be controlled wirelessly through a Smartphone app anywhere you have an internet connection.
I cannot get my Cree bulb to successfully pair with my Wink Hub / Wink Hub 2.
If you have successfully set up your Wink Hub / Wink Hub 2 or Relay, but cannot get a Cree® Connected LED bulb to pair it, you can factory reset your bulbs. To do this, install your bulb in a light fixture and turn it on. (Tip – for best results, install the bulb where you can turn the power off at a wall switch.) Turn the light switch on and off at two second intervals until the light blinks once to indicate it has reset. This should happen at the 4th full on-off cycle. You can then turn the light off and pair the bulb with your hub via the mobile App.
Where can I use the Cree® Connected LED bulb?
The Cree® Connected LED bulb is ideal for use anywhere inside your home where you need high quality light, such as your kitchen, hallway, bathroom, or family room. These bulbs are not recommended for outdoor use or for use in enclosed fixtures.
Can I sync my Cree® Connected LED bulb with other smart devices in my home?
When paired with a Wink Hub / Wink Hub 2 or Relay, Cree bulbs can be synced to work with other devices connected to the Wink network. With a few taps in the Wink App, you can program your products to work together automatically based on triggers, such as location or activity. For example, a robot can be programmed to automatically turn on specific lights and open your shades when you unlock the door.
How many bulbs can I connect to one Wink Hub / Wink Hub 2?
A Wink Hub / Wink Hub 2 can control up to 50 Cree® Connected LED bulbs.
I already have a Wink Hub / Wink Hub 2 and a competitor’s connected bulbs installed. Will Cree® Connected LED bulbs work on the same Wink Hub / Wink Hub 2?
Yes, you can add Cree® Connected LED bulbs to work along with other connected bulbs on your existing Wink Hub / Wink Hub 2.
Do CREE Connected LED bulbs work with Amazon Alexa and Wink?
Yes. Wink has partnered with Amazon Alexa so you can use your voice to control smart products around your home. We've started with select lighting products, but will be adding more products and features soon. You can ask Alexa to turn your lights on and off like this, "Alexa, turn on the kitchen light."
What is the difference between the Cree Connected Soft White and Daylight LED Bulbs?
The Cree Connected Soft White bulb has color temperature of 2700 Kelvin, while the Daylight bulb has a color temperature of 5000 Kelvin.

From the Wink app, tap "Add a Product," then tap "Lights," then tap “Cree Light Bulb."
Follow instructions on the Wink app, which will let you know when your Wink Hub / Wink Hub 2 is ready. Once it is ready, power the light bulb on and the pairing will begin. The light bulb will remain lit during the pairing procedure and the Wink Hub / Wink Hub 2 will flash green when successfully paired. After the Wink Hub / Wink Hub 2 flashes green, the Wink app displays “success” and your light bulb is connected.
Tap "Name Light" to give your light a name or tap "Done" to exit setup. If you are connecting more than one light bulb, give each light a different name. Congratulations, you are connected to your Cree Connected light bulb!
