Really like this kit
Posted by: Chris from: on
I've been looking at the Phillips Hue lights for a while, but then I was waiting for Apple HomeKit support and it got that, but I really didn't want to invest in $60 multi-color bulbs so I never got around to buying into the Hue lights. But then they released this kit with the Ambiance bulbs. These bulbs are perfect for what I wanted.
I really wanted bulbs that would cover the "white" color spectrum. What is nice is that you can turn them full up and get the daylight color which includes the blue light that you don't want at night. But then when night rolls around you can turn them over to a softer reddish color that eliminates the blue light which isn't good for when you are ready to go to sleep.
We started out putting these in the lamps by bed so at night you can have the nice reddish color that helps with sleep. And turn it down so they just glow and make for a nice night light until you are ready to turn them off. It's also great for the kids.
And the lights work so well I've started putting them everywhere in the house. I've found that they just work. And now instead of walking to the bedroom in the dark I can leave all the lights on and when I get to bed I just turn all the lights off at once from the app.
The wall switch works great as well. Very well designed. It basically only controls one "scene" but it lets you cycle through multiple brightness settings that you have configured for those bulbs. And the nice feature about it is that while it has a wall plate and you can easily mount it by the door or wherever, the actual switch is magnetic and sticks to the plate so you can just grab it on the way to bed and put it on your nightstand to control the lights at night, for instance..
I've just not had any issues with the setup and it just plain works. I've been using them for a month or so now I guess and I couldn't be happier with all my bulbs... I plan to replace all the lights in the house with them.
Oh, and give them a try with Amazon Alexa. It's so nice to just be able to tell Alexa to turn a light on when I don't have my phone handy. Alexa actually works a bit better than it does from Siri. Alexa just says OK when you tell her to turn a light on. Siri gets a bit chatty.

Fun Gadget and Useful Home Protection

I really like the interface and the ability to control the lights remotely on my iPhone. I can even set programs for the lights to turn on randomly and use it with a IF recipe (such as turn on my hallway entry light when my Ring doorbell senses motion).

Purchased this because it came with the hub. I bought this alongside an Alexa unit just so I could say "Alexa turn on the bed lights" and it works amazingly. Lights are dimmable and you can set the color from day light to soft white and any color in between from within the Hue app.

The starter kit integrates well with my entertainment system. I rarely use the dimmer switch. I will eventually use the switch in another room to use with the other hue lights that I purchased. Is this kit worth the full price? I do not know. I used my bestbuy rewards to purchase the kit. After purchasing, I bought four individual hue lights for other rooms. If you decide to get into home automation, take your time, it can get very expensive. I have the Amazon echo controlling the lights.

One or two of these lights are not enough at all. However, this can get us started on collecting them.
