Philips Hue White A19 Bluetooth Smart LED Bulb (4-Pack)
This was my first smart bulbs. I am very pleased. It was easy to setup. Having a routine or schedule and a voice command with turning on lights is so convenient. I also have a routine to turn off all lights when going to bed. This reassures that lights are off. These Phillips smart bulbs don't require a hub. All you need is the Phillips Hue app. Once the app is setup and recognizes the bulbs, Alexa can be used to manage the smart bulbs.
Not much you can say about Hue Bulbs that hasn't already been said. They're more expensive than other brands, but they're the best on the market.
It's worth noting this does not change color temperature. Phillips makes Hue Bulbs that do, so if you're looking for that feature you need to buy that model.
i have many different brands of bulbs at home - hues, wyze and ring...to me they are all the same.. you should always expect 1-5 sec delay after you give your voice commend using alexa or google.. but it's versatile enough that i never need to touch the switch again. i particularly like the wake up feature that wakes me up slow in the morning to get me ready for the bright light from the sun each morning... if you are on fence about going smart - i highly recommend you start thinking about it, as this can be turned on remotely and give you a piece of mind

Philips Hue White Starter Kit Review: Still the Best
Philips has not rested on its lead, continuing to develop not only its smart lights but the app and ecosystem supporting it. At $69 for the two-light starter kit (and $99 for the four-pack), it's $20 more than Sengled's kit, but what you'reFull 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.
