    Unreliable LB100 smart bulb

    Model : LB100

    Hardware Version : 1.0

    Firmware Version : 1.7.1

    ISP : Netgear R6300v2

    All of my HS105 and HS200 smart plugs and switches throughout the house work very reliably. I think I've only had one or two failures to operate in the last several months, and a repeat attempt worked.

    But my LB100 smart bulb stops working about once per week. Once it fails, it stays down until I reset it by turning the power off and on. Usually it's Stringify that reports a failure with the bulb, while sequential actions in the Stringify flow with other TP-Link switches work just fine, so it's not due to the Kasa link being down. The bulb is only about 30 feet from the router and has a good WiFi signal at that location.

    So what's the problem? Does the bulb have older firmware that screws up and loses contact more frequently? Why does it fail to re-establish contact? Why does this affect only the bulb and not the switches?
