Philips Hue White A19 Bluetooth Smart LED Bulb (2-Pack)
Those worked better than the colored ones in our living room and I saved like $220 when you factor all 6. The colored and the ambiance versions shine around in the canned light and look fairly weird. The white one was focused and the color temperature was just right and even better than I could ever achieve with the colored version and because the color was focused and not lost inside the canned, they can produce more lumens shining down. I now set them at 50% brightness vs the 100% brightness i had to use with the color. They don't get as hot and I imagine they use half the electricity. Don't hesitate. Definitely the most bang for your buck!
Great addition to the digital control of my house. I have had Phillips Hue’s bridge for a couple of years now and continue to add to the Bridge. We have these all over the inside and outside of the house. Great individual control of lights which makes for a good security feature. We can go to bed and turn the lights off the whole house from there. Very convenient for not having to bump around in the dark. I have mine programmed to come on when I near the house so the outside is well lit upon arrival. Life span on these are good too. I have not had to replace any of the inside lights in 2 years. The outside has had moisture issues and had 1 replaced.
Love these so far. My only complaint is accidentally hitting the switch out of habit and it manually shuts the lights down and you can’t use the bulbs via voice or app unless the switch it on again. I wasn’t aware if needing a hub when I purchased to be able to turn lights on and off while not home but found I can control them on my Alexa all while not home. A couple of the bulbs were difficult to pair with Alexa for so reason.

Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 Starter Kit
The third-generation Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 Starter Kit is costly, but remains the ultimate way to get started with smart lighting in your home.Full Review
A:AnswerYes, but you'll have to look for the "incandescent wattage equivalent" to compare these to incandescent bulbs. For example, this 10W bulb is the brightness equivalent of a 60W incandescent bulb. However, if you're comparing comparable LED bulbs, a 12W bulb would be brighter than a 10W. For this one, think of it as a "normal" brightness. Philips does make brighter bulbs if that's what you need.
A:AnswerYes, these are the new type of Hue that have Bluetooth as well. You can only do up to ten lamps with Bluetooth and you have to be closer than when you’re using a hub.
The Bluetooth connection only works on one device and you have to download a Philips Hue Bluetooth version of the app.
A:AnswerI’m assuming the lights that I have specifically would work fine since they have the same type of socket. However, they do make lights specifically for recessed fixtures.
Hope that helped you and answered your question.
A:AnswerIn terms of power draw, and heat generated (this is the Watt rating), the Hue A19 bulbs are 9.5W, well below the 40W.
The largest concern will be that they fit the fan's dome or housings well. The A19 is shaped like many "traditional" bulbs most people use in their homes, and thus are generally compatible with any light bulb socket which would fit a "standard" bulb. I have these in many places, including 2 ceiling fans. They work just fine.
