    Good, but look for defective strips

    I have purchased a few of these extension kits so far, and I have setup most of them. The extension kits work as the instructions indicate they should. I was able to add one or more of these strips to the main Lightstrip Plus strand. Everything easily connects together, and there are marks around every 12 inches that allow you to shorten the strip if needed. After setting everything up, I would have given the product four stars due to how easy it was to add these strips into the primary lights (I took off a star due to the lack of places I can install these strips because the strips do not bend side to side much at all). I did some basic testing after the install, and everything appeared to be working perfectly. However, a short time after the install, I started playing around with the lights more on Halloween with my kids. What I discovered was that two of my extension strips were defective. I discovered the problem as I started testing the various hues of each color available in the Hue App. As the lights changed, I realized that there was about a 12" section on each extension strip that did not match the rest of the lights on that strip when changed to certain colors. This was noticed on strips that had not been cut, or shorted in any way. I have included pictures of the lights to help you see what I mean. The issue was only noticeable when selecting the light colors seen in the photos. Any other color, and the lights matched the rest of the Lightstrip Plus perfectly. I ended up taking the two defective extension strips back to Best Buy, which they returned without a hassle. I bought these the day they were first available in the store, so maybe there was a slight production issues with some of these in the beginning. The rest of my extension strips seem to work fine. However, because of my experience with the two I returned, make sure you test out all possible colors by using the Hue App (or something similar) in order to be sure you have a fully functioning extension strip.

    These Hue strips - and all of their bulbs - are a fantastic addition to our smart home. We have the strips lying on top of our kitchen cabinets and they give a beautiful additional lighted glow to our home. A few tips: 1) You can integrate these with Harmony remotes, Wink, Alexa, etc... In addition, we use programmed routines through IFTT so we can just say or push a button to "trigger reading", e.g., and have all the right light settings immediately set. We use Hue, WeMo switches, and Lutron dimmers all together through the various apps. They work great on Android or iOS. 2) These plug into a regular outlet. Very simple and easy to set up. 3) You can get two foot extension segments or cut the strips to the length you need. 4) We use some other fun apps through our phones, like Disco or Halloween to have the lights do different things. It's so fun and impressive to see all of the colors. 5) You can also use IFTT to have your lights change color, e.g., when your favorite team is playing, if it's raining, or if the space station flies over, just to geek out. I don't think you can have a more beautiful or more affordable way to upgrade your lights.

    A couple of issues, but otherwise I am happy

    Several weeks after installing them under my kitchen cabinets, these fell off, so I will have to reattach them with something else. Apparently the glue is not as strong. The other thing I was hoping to be able to buy, was a non-lit connector between two light strips. My kitchen cabinets are about a foot apart from each other, and I don't need lights there. It is actually kind of ugly and distasteful how these are hanging up in the air. It doesn't make any sense for something as simple as that to be missing from the market. If anyone has a suggestion how to resolve this, I am open. The third thing I am missing, is a simple on/off switch on the control box. If I don't have any automation, it would be nice to have it. For the money, something like this should have been included in my humble opinion. Other than that, everything else about these is great. The brightness is great - way better than what I expected. The software integration is excellent too. Alexa complements them beautifully.

    Great strips, even with the difficulty connecting

    I only have three complaints about these strips. 1 - Philips makes it incredibly to customize the length and re-use strips without soldering your own connections. If you plan to cut these, do not cut where Philips marked. Cut between the solder joints so these can be re-used. 2 - You must also buy a bridge to manage these, they're not just plug and play out the box. 3 - The actual strip is directly attached to the controller., meaning the controller must be within a few inches, it can't be hidden with an extension. Other than that, these are fantastic. It is hard to find a LED strip that does both warm white, bright white and colors all in one unit. I installed these as under cabinet lights, using Cat6 cable to extend where needed. I do have other locations where I could use this, but Philips design is not consumer friendly.

    I used this to add to the light strip plus for added length to provide backlighting for my 55" TV. Pros: -Good lighting -colors matched light strip plus Cons: -Value is not there as far as length vs price is concerned. The light strip plus is made just short enough where larger applications will require extension(s). At this price in addition to the light strip plus cost I'm not sure it's worth it. -Connection point to light strip plus is good for consistent clean flat lines, but it will come apart easily if not stabilized so it won't move. If you need to bend a corner or go over uneven spots at the connection point forget it.

    Great Light Extensions (add on to 6.6 kit)

    I'm using this light strip extension (with the 6.6 multicolor lightstrip plus kit) in my kitchen as accent lighting mounted on the top of my kitchen cabinets. I really am impressed by the brightness of these lights, and the ability to dim and change color is a major benefit. They come with an adhesive strip,; however, I am not using it. Instead, I just have them resting on the top of my cabinet (my kitchen is an open concept, with the cabinets appearing to "float" on a 3/4 height wall. This allows the light strip to cast a light for the kitchen, and also the dining room. I have them setup with my Apple HomeKit for automation purposes and essentially use them as a night light, too. This is only an extension (that plugs into the 6.6 Hue lightstrip plus kit). This extension comes with no power supply as it "piggybacks" off the 6.6ft kit. Highly recommended!

    Hue lighting and I have a strange relationship. I LOVE THEM. I can't imagine life, my home(condo) without them, They are truly what make all the expensive 120' 4K home theater, speakers, artwork, custom future, LIGHTING, etc. come togeather. the ability to change the listing via voice or programmed settings create an atmosphere in my home that can seem unbelievable or unreal at times. I can't count the number of people who have been blown away at my home automation...(which is made up of several functioning items, apps, programs, etc) They always mention how "cool that is that the lighting automatically just follows suit depending on the activity. .. they never cease to amaze me as HueLights constantly progress & getting better with updates, algorithms, etc... You can't go wrong with Hue lighting!

    Good Under Cabinet Lighting

    I installed these lights under my cabinets and am very happy with the result. They are bright enough to light the countertop at night was well as light up the back splash. The color options are endless, so you can pick one that matches the room. There are 3rd party extension cables, splitters, and cut end connectors available online. These will void any warranties on the Hue, but are required for some projects. Couple negatives: The strips do not allow for placement on any sharp corners as they are not flexible enough. The spacing between spots to cut the strips is too large. It makes it difficult to get precise lengths as the "cut here" symbols are about a foot apart.
