The device blinks and then pairs easily. Brightness is good - there are two modes - sunlight and grow. Varied brightness w/a timer and has an app.
The app allows for customizability that you wouldn't get with a controller. Once set up, it does all the fun stuff on its own day to day.
The light itself is basic with a power button and light dimmer switch. The dimmerswitch has two levels of light, that's not what the description says.
To rotate the separate heads takes a little planning. With quick rolling brownouts, they seem to remember the settings. With actual power outages, i did have to reset the timer function.
