My addiction started out simply and innocently enough. I purchased a 4-pack of white/color bulbs with HUE bridge. I then discovered apps like "HUE Thunder". I also became more adept and utilizing the different functions available with using the bridge. My addiction has progressed and I have several white/color bulbs and several white bulbs. These fit perfectly for some small wall mounted lamps in my study. The compliment and synch with main lighting in the room.
After experimenting with several other brands I had to stick with the one that absolutely works.. I operate Alexa and Ring Home Alarm system and everything integrated very well.. the others seem to unpair and have lagging issues and this made it difficult when some of my lighting is elevated 18’+ and inside a fixture for reprogramming. Save yourself the headache and spend a little extra on something that works.
Bulbs are great for speaking to turn on and change the level of lighting. HOWEVER, it becomes more of a challenge when grouping. We bought these with the intent of using in a lamp that has two bulbs that are controlled by a rotating switch that turns one on first, then the other one to have two one, then both off. It is little bit more difficult to manage getting them set to turn them on together. It can probably be done, but had to group one light with a group of other lights and the other one separately. It works for our arrangement, but gave up trying to get it set as one group together. And if you accidently turn the switch off, it changes the group setting and back to the struggle of managing how the two in one lamp are set-up. Good bulbs, just the dual use in one lamp was more difficult to manage.

One of hues most reasonably priced items (IMO)
Owned for 9 months when reviewed.
These are one of hue's more reasonably priced items for everyday overhead or lamp lighting. It's just a White light (no warm white) but they are still great to have in your hue ecosystem for places like bathrooms, hallways, laundry rooms, etc..see picture of two of them in the recessed ceiling lights in the picture.
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.
