How to reset a GE smart bulb

Turn off for 5 seconds, then on for 8 seconds, then off for 2 seconds, then on for 8 seconds, then off for 2 seconds, then on for 8 seconds…

This has got to be a test to see how long until people simply smash the bulb against the wall in frustration.

Child's play compared to programming a car remote.

ges brings up a good point - I hold a degree in computer sciences, write medium scale data analysis packages and I have no idea how to work with the paired key system in my base model 2008 Ford Ranger. I dread what may happen if I ever lose the keys. I feel so inadequate.

Turn on for X seconds. Turn off for X seconds. I would have thrown the entire unit outside by that point. If a light bulb needs that much attention to get it to work then the manufacture is peddling a crappy product I do need to purchase.

I still have tear drop shaped bulbs that were the standard for 100 years. I have boxes of them in the basement. To conserve power I turn off lights when I am not in that space. As for my car remote system. It is a key that fits into the key slot in the car door. As a wise professor from my university days said, more than once, "if I have to spend more than thirty minutes learning to used a new and improved version of anything I will stay with the current model."

I pass right by this b/s at the Big Box store and go to the reasonably-priced bulbs at the end of the section, on the floor level. Problem solved.
