Sengled has been one of the early adopters of Frustration-Free Setup on WiFi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee devices. For many of our customers, setting up a smart bulb is as simple as powering on the device. Customers engage with our products more and we see fewer product returns. So implementing Frustration-Free Setup for Matter devices was a no-brainer for Sengled.
