This is coming in a very near update. Now that we've got a bulb, we can start testing and integrating it.

I just got an Aeon Labs RGB LED bulb to test for a friend.
Whiteness slider seems to do nothing.
Brightness slider corresponds to Data Table entry "Level".
Data Table entry "Cool White" always displays "0" regardless of other settings.
Light output is never a clean cool white or clean warm white, always seems to have RGB output that discolors. I'm not even sure the main white LEDS are getting turned on at all.

Aeon Labs package insert says "The bulb has 5 main colour channels available for you to adjust: Red, Green, Blue, Warm White and Cool White". InControl needs at least three modes - RGB (adjusted with color disc and level), Cool White (level only) and Warm White (level only).
I'm guessing there is a Data Table entry for "Warm White" that isn't showing up.

The Aeon RGN LED bulb I am testing arrived slightly damaged with the plastic dome separated from the base. Using InControl I was not able to get the 'warm white' and 'cool white' LEDs to function at all. To be sure the bulb was not severely damaged I installed a trial version of HomeSeer HS3. I have been able to test all spects of the bulb with HS3 with easy control of all LEDs and modes. Beautiful white light in the cool and warm modes, good, pure colors from the RGB mode with easy control of each color using sliders.

Looking forward to full support by InControl.

I just stumbled upon the answer to part of my troubles with this bulb. I kept fooling around with the color disk and that puts the bulb in RGB mode, locking out the white LEDs. I created a new scene, but didn't fiddle with the color. Now I can turn the bulb on in Cool White mode. The first issue I have is that the RGB LEDs are not being used, but the device table of values shows the RGB components at 255/255/255.
Second issue, after trying to see what the whiteness control does I can't get the cool white scene to work, can't recreate it. InControl needs a pair of radio buttons or something to differentiate RGB and white modes.

Good to hear support is coming.. I just came here to see if InControl supported this bulb... I think im going with these rather than the HUE's... These will help build out my mesh network, and I don't need another device plugged into my LAN, and yet another online third party account setup..

I realise this is an old post revived. Just bought three of these globes and it doesn't look like Axial is yet handling them particularly well. When I first had them plugged in they seemed to work OK'ish, but after a couple of day's two of them appear in Axial very strange. The colour wheel shows a black solid dot instead of an open dot and I have very limited control over the globe.

Likewise, when used in conjunction with a sensor and a scene they don't turn on or off, whereas the exact same scene using a switch and a normal globe trigger as expected.

Checked the LED globes and they still work perfectly for all the manual modes, just flaky under Axial control. Is this support still being worked on?

It sounds like something with the UI itself - can you close the UI and restart it, then see if the functionality is restored? If we can confirm that it is, then we'll look into what's going on with the color wheel and go from there with a fix.

Hi, Thanks. I have restarted the server a few times and get varied results. As of the moment one of them still shows up as a black dot and two are showing as open dots. However this has changed between globes as I restart. The open dots work as expected. However, I can move the black dot around but it has no impact on the colour being given out by that bulb. In fact, if I move it on the colour wheel the globe goes out completely unless I tap the Whiteness slider and it then simply comes back on as a white light.

However, if I set the colour manually through the wall switch I can happily use the dimming slider and on/off buttons in the Android app, and all works as expected.

Hi, also just got some of these bulb and can only really get the brightness slider to do anything. 

As a workaround I selected the "normal" color I wanted via the "switch on and off twice quickly" to start the color cycle and then turning off when I get the color I want.  After that it just stays at that color.  So essentially they are just dimmer bulbs once the color is manually set until Axial starts to work with them.

UPDATE**:  I actually got this working.  I had to mess around with some of the bulbs parameters, but eventually whatever I did got it going.
