Bulb glows red when turned off

Hi there,

Just bought and installed a pack of 4 mini day/dusk bulbs for the office downstairs. One of the lights glows red when turned off. It’s a bit offputting. Kind of like it’s about to explode.

All bulbs have been updated to the latest firmware.

Does anyone know of a solution to this? Is it a faulty bulb?



I would exchange them if you are still in time to do so. If not, contact LIFX support as I don’t believe that to be normal. However, I do have at least 2 or 3 bulbs that when off have purplish hue as if I could suddenly see IR (IR is on but should be invisible, and is on the other bulbs).
