      We have them in use in two situations where there was no wiring for dimming and they are working perfectly. We love them!

      Answer

      Hi, You can use the Philips Hue Dimmer Kit and control up to 10 white lights without the bridge but you won't be able to control the lights using Siri (HomeKit) or Alexa. It's a good way to test out the lights before committing to all the other Philips Hue products you'll want to try. Check out the user manual from Philips Hue website for more info, http://www2.meethue.com/media/2999135/Hue-Dimming-kit-NAM.pdf.

      No, you would want to get a dimmer or light recipe kit

    Is the bulb in this kit the same as http://www.bestbuy.com/site/philips-800-lumen-10-5w-tone-philips-hue-white-ambiance-a19-led-light-bulb-white/5101600.p?skuId=5101600 ?   (4 Answers)

      Yes, i think so. I think there are three types of bulbs. White - you can change the intensity/brightness, but not the type of white (can't go from warm white to cool white) White ambiance - you can change the intensity/brightness and you can change from warm to bright white Color - you can change intensity and color to red, green, white, or almost any mix of color.
