I recently purchased a 100W equivalent bulb (from another vendor), and the app that is used to control it gets confused by a dual band home WiFi network. I'm not really interested in turning off the 5 GHz band, and I'm not sure that I can. (It's the Google mesh router.)

Should I send the bulb back, or will other apps control it, too?

What color changing bright bulbs do you recommend for a dual band home network, assuming that I give up on this one?
