Philips Hue White & Color Ambiance LED Starter Kit
A:AnswerThis kit contains the 4th generation bulbs that are Bluetooth compatible where as the other kit with 1140+ reviews contains the 3.1 generation bulbs. You can verify this by the Bluetooth listed on the box and the icon printed on the bulbs themselves. Bluetooth is nice if you want a bulb in a separate area outside of the hub where there is no Zigbee mesh network. You can also directly connect to google home devices as they have Bluetooth built in. However, Bluetooth is irrelevant with this kit if you plan on using the bridge but it’s nice to have since it’s the same cost. All other specs remain the same between 3.0-4 generation bulbs including color saturation and lumens.
A:AnswerNo, the dimmer is essentially a standalone remote control that comes with a mounting plate that is magnetic. You can mount it on the wall or you could just set the remote control on a table. You can use the remote control to turn the lights on and off and control the dimming function. You can also use it to scroll through various light settings.
A:AnswerNo, it does not. The bridge connects to an Ethernet port from your router. The bulbs communicate via the bridge on a protocol called Zigbee. The bulbs never connect to your WiFi network by themselves.
A:AnswerYou need a hue hub, which is included in the starter kit. You can also purchase it all separately. I did not own a hue hub so I purchased a starter kit and then all the additional bulbs I wanted.
