Trouble connecting C by GE C-life bulbs 1 Recommended Answer 158 Replies 177 Upvotes

I have tried to add my C by GE smart lights to my bedroom without success. I was on customer chat with GE's help line last night and they could not solve the issue, so I believe it to be a Google home issue (app or hardware). I am able to pair the bulbs to the C by GE app, but I wanted to connect to Google directly. Whenever I try to add the new device it says that it cannot find anything and prompts me to factory reset the lights, which I have done multiple times now. Anyone had any luck with this issue? I checked my app, it is up to date. I factory reset my Google home mini, I made sure the firmware was up to date, and I tried unplugging the other Google homes in my house. The one thing that I have not tried is creating a new "home" and adding only that Google home mini to see if that solves the issue.

Hi Stephen,
Sorry to hear you are having that trouble with the C by Ge bulbs and the Google Home device.
If you haven't had a fix yet, try the following steps below.  If it doesn't work let us know. I have some other ideas....thanks!
  1. Make sure Google Assistant and C by GE bulb are in the same room.
  2. Turn off C by GE bulb for 10 seconds, then turn it back on.
  3. Make sure you have the latest version of the Google Home app.
  4. Reboot Google Home.
  5. Force close the Google Home app.
  6. Factory reset your C by GE bulb.
  7. Factory reset your Google Home.
