These bulbs are made to be switched on with regular household switches.
You need not do anything other than adding the relay. Current will be about 30mA. Nearly any relay will do the job.
All the other "60W" filament LED bulbs are in the same class 7-10 Watts.
There is a table on this site: The Next Generation of LED Filament Bulbs
5 Watt, 375 Lumens, Filament LED Bulb
This is a 60W Equivalent Soft White by Westinghouse, it draws 7.5 Watts.

You may find something like this in the base of an LED light bulb.
What I found at the patent office was this image. The base (10) "contains a control board". This base is smaller than the above circuit board.
The LED light bulb 8 includes, in its base 10 hermetically sealing the
opening of a glass cover 12, a control board (not shown) that converts
commercial electric power into electric power for driving the LEDs.
As shown in figures, the LED light bulb provided by the present
invention at least includes: a bulb base 10, an insulation part 20, a
power module 30, a support post 40, a light source module 50 and a
The bulb base 10 is e.g. but not limited to an E26/E27/B22 connector.
If being applied in a small LED light bulb, an E12 connector used in a
small nightlight can be adopted. If being applied in a large
illumination lamp, an E40 connector can be adopted. According to one
embodiment of the present invention, an E27 connector is adopted for
illustration and shall not be a limitation to the scope of the present
The insulation part 20 is disposed on the bulb base 10, formed as e.g.
but not limit to a hollow barrel-shaped structure, and formed with an
accommodation space 21, the bottom thereof is formed with a thread 22
for being screw-fitted in the bulb base 10, two sides thereof are
respectively formed with a fasten post 23, the top end of the fasten
post 23 is formed with a fasten hole 24. Wherein, the insulation part
20 is made of a plastic material. In addition, a slide groove 25 is
respectively formed between the two fasten posts 23 of the insulation
part 20. Moreover, the insulation part 20 can be served to insulate
the power module 30 thereby complying with relevant safety
The substrate 10 is set to be of an elongated bar-shaped construction
to constitute a main body of the LED filament. In present embodiment,
the length of the substrate ranges from 5.00 mm to 200.00 mm, the
width thereof ranges from 0.50 to 10.00 mm, and height thereof ranges
from 0.10 mm to 5.00 mm. the light emitting unit 20 is fastened onto
at least one side surface of the substrate 10, and includes plural
regularly distributed blue light chips 21 and red light chips 22. The
blue light chips 21 and red light chips 22 are sequentially connected
to one another in series by a metal conductive cable 40. Two ends of
the substrates 10 are provided with electrode pins 50 connected
respectively to the two ends of the metal conductive cable 40.
The 6 filaments are connected in series as are the 25 LEDs in each filament.
this is about 150 LEDs, red and blue mixed, so a forward voltage on average of 2.5v so about 375 volts total forward current. At 5 Watts that about 13 mA.
So there must be a rectifier and tiny boost regulator in the base.
Not much to create massive inrush.
The 1.5 to 2 Amp inrush your are seeing sounds a bit high for these circumstances.
How was the current measured. The voltage across a shunt resistor?
The video was enlightening. The rectifier and linear current regulator is what I'd expect. The light bulb in the video, the filaments were not connected in series like the patent. The current regulator is the equivalent of a dynamic resistor that adjusted its resistance to the voltage applied.
For a linear regulator to work the LED voltage must be less than the power supplied.
This means no capacitor and no inductor which equals no inrush.
The one bulb with the capacitor in the beginning of the video would create negligible inrush.
Now this is a 553 Watt LED grow light. It has 144 3 Watt and 48 2 Watt LEDs. These put out the equivalent light of a 1000 Watt HPS lamp.
An indoor farm may have dozens of these. When you flip the switch on them I'll expect some inrush. Not yours.
Now compare the little LED PCB above to this power supply. This power supply has some serious inductors and capacitors.
It's the capacitors (fast charging batteries) and inductors (building magnetic field on startup) that create inrush.
