      Warning! May Cause Weight Gain!

      "Hey Alexa, Turn off kitchen lights" Yeah, It's that simple! Now that every light in my house is a Philips Hue of some sort, I sit on the couch and control the lights not having to move a muscle. Nothing worse than getting comfy on the couch and look over and realize you left the lights on in the kitchen (that's 7 lights for me) Have I gained weight? Probably not but, I feel so lazy. LOL. All jokes aside, There are so many ways to use these lights. I was in a room in the back of the house and thought I heard a noise in the front of the house. I told Alexa to turn on "ALL" lights and she lit this house up like a stadium! I was able to walk through the house and see everything without stumbling for light switches. Think about the elderly or a disabled person, how convenient it would be for them to turn on a light before entering a room instead of going to a dark room then getting the light on. These lights can be controlled from anywhere with the app on your cell phone. I found it easier to enter the serial numbers instead of having the app look for them.

      I have track lights in my living room, and was originally going to change the dimmer switch to a smart dimmer. It did not work out (turned out to be one of the only switch boxes in the house without an available neutral wire.). After considering options, I decided go with changing the bulbs. So glad! It turned out to be the better option in the long run. The led bulbs are much more efficient than the halogens that they replaced. They are nice and bright white when needed for reading and offer so many brightness and shade options for other activities. I also put one in my entry way, which had a cfl in the recessed fixture. Works great! I love being able to include these bulbs in home automation programs and also to be able to control via voice. They are a bit expensive, but led bulbs last and these offer good functionality. The preset scenes in the Hue app for these bulbs are very nice, plus you can create your own. Integration with SmartThings, Alexa and Stringify flows is a snap.

      Lower Light Output

      Posted

      I have a Philips Hue bridge and a number of the Hue white A19 bulbs, with which I have been very pleased. When I saw they also had these BR30 floodlight bulbs, I bought four of them to replace compact fluorescent floodlights that I have had for several years in recessed cans (6 inch diameter) in my kitchen. What I did not notice until I got home is that these are smaller (3.7 in. x 5.2 in.) than the floodlights I was replacing (4.7 in x 6.2 in.) and produced significantly less light output (just 680 lumens vs. 1150 lumens). While they were exactly as described in the specifications, and worked perfectly with the Philips Hue bridge, their lesser light output was insufficient for my needs -- so regrettably, I will be returning them. I hope that as this product line continues to develop, Philips will come out with higher- output BR30 bulbs designed for the larger-diameter can fixtures.

      Not sure it's worth it

      Bought these (pack of two) for my living room, now returning to the store. These are good lights (although not very bright), they perform as expected but honestly I do not see how this $50 pair is principally better compared to regular LED lightbulbs that would be like 7 bucks each, have a warm spectrum and are dimmable. The principal question you need to ask yourself is if it is important for you that the light changes spectrum from warm to cold under some circumstances. The second question is if you want to dim your lights using a phone / iPad or with an in-wall dimmer. You can also set up that they turn on at certain time. In our case, we started using them just as regular warm bulb and that we also prefer an installed dimmer + movement detector instead of an app. There is clearly no reason to have both. I've also bought several new generation bulbs that change colors that we use for the pourch. These are more fun, they offer great variety of things you can do. But in this case, not so sure.

      I have a fairly extensive Philips Hue environment in my apartment and I honestly don't know how I dealt with prior light bulbs before investing in this. I will say, after getting everything set up... I wish I would have splurged on the color bulbs from the get go, as they provide all the same shades of white that the Ambiance do... (At least to my eyes they do) Highly recommend Philips Hue, but take my advice, go for a fully immersible color environment. If you buy 1 bulb in color, you're kidding yourself if you don't look back and wish they all put out the same spectrum of color.

      All of our living room and bedroom lights are Philips Hue bulbs. These bulbs give us control that we wouldn't otherwise have. These flood bulbs are in the ceiling on a single circuit. No dimmer. With the Hue app, we can control each bulb individually, having different bulbs on and controlling the brightness. Together with the other Hue bulbs in the room, we have created scenes for different occassions - reading, watching TV, entertaining, etc. We can also control them using our Amazon Echo. We have also created Routines that allow us to set different scenes in each room using a single verbal command. "Alexa, good night" turns off all living room lights and turns on two bedroom lights at half brightness.

      Perfect Replacements for Can Lights

      I purchased 4 sets of these to replace all of the can lights in my kitchen. One of the biggest selling features of these are the ability to control the temperature/color of the bulbs. I have some older LEDs; however, the light is quite harsh and can't be adjusted. Enter these Hue BR30s - The perfect answer for my struggle. I have them grouped together as "Kitchen Table" to control their brightness and temperature from the Homekit app. I occasionally get the "light not available" from the app; however, when controlled from the Hue Dimmer Remote, I have no problems turning them on/off. A spendy investment of a couple hundred dollars to replace all of my overhead lights, but with the anticipated life of 25k hours, I'm not too concerned. The ability to integrate with Apple HomeKit and automation really sold me on these.

      BR-30 are the standard for in-ceiling lighting, and these Phillips Hue BR-30 smart light bulbs are a great way to add "intelligence" to your smart home. They are easy to setup as long as you have the required Phillips Hue Bridge already in place. These bulbs can be controlled by a free app on your Apple or Android phone or by the Amazon Echo/Dot or Google Home voice controlled assistants. The other important thing to understand is the light itself. These bulbs have 680 lumens of brightness and are just as bright as the standard bulbs that my contractor had installed in the rest of the ceiling light fixtures. I can't tell the difference between these bulbs and standard ones until i change the color temperature from warm to cool.
