Which smart bulbs can run offline (only in LAN)?

In the topic of recent LTT video - which of available smart bulbs allow for offline operation? I don't necessarily mean like no internet access at all but at least no internet access after initial setup. So basically I just want to be sure that after initial connetion / pairing they can run 100% in LAN and definitely they can't use 3G or any kind of mobile network.

Hue and Tradfri can do this.

Do you happen to know if Tradfri hub also use this low power protocol?

What do you mean with low power protocol?

The communication from you to the bridge is with COAPs.

Lifx is able to be controlled over lan only though I am not sure if you are able to get them on the network without first connecting them to the lifx app. I have successfully played with a lifx using just a python script on local lan and supposedly you can hook them up to Home Assistant but I have had less luck with that.
