    A wonderful bulb perfect for any living space!

    |
    Posted .

    I've always been an early adopter and I still remember the day I watched the introduction of the original hue bulbs. I was immediately hooked and went and bought a start-up pack on the first day of availability. Over the past few years, I have continued to love my hue system (especially with the recent upgrade that made the system compatible with HomeKit), but noticed I seldom used the "colored" lights. Instead I used the "light recipes" that changed the temperature of the white light nearly every day. During the day I would switch the lights to the "concentrate" setting for higher temperature light (4000-5000K) and later in the day I would change over to the softer light temperature that most people are used to. So when I saw the the announcement that they would be releasing these bulbs I was ecstatic. Plus, they were going to be brighter (800 lumens vs 600 lumens of original model) and half the price! I have purchased a number of these bulbs over the past 2 months and highly recommend them to anyone interested in smart lighting. The colored lighting of hue is fun at first, but I feel most users don't often change their lighting to blue, red, and green after the first couple of weeks. The affordability and the practicality of these bulbs strike just the right balance for those interested in high quality "adjustable white" lights.

    Excellent dimming, super ambiance!

    Posted .

    I love my Hue bulbs. I have several different types, and this White Ambiance set just adds to the collection. OK - I'm a lighting guy - and I really like to be able to create different light scenes and moods for my home. I'm impressed with the level of dimming capable with these bulbs - even better that the standard dimmable LED bulbs I purchased from home improvement stores. No flicker, quick response - perfect for getting the room warmth just right. These bulbs are not color, but have a 2200 (a very warm white) to 6500K (an energetic blue hue). Works great where you don't need a color bulb!

    I really love what light does, like the beautiful glimmer of waves in the morning, and these bulbs open up options that make exploring new indoor options a breeze. They are especially good on cold winter nights when the wind is blowing furiously and the house has those dark corners. No more!: Alexa, turn on all Hue lights. Then I like to play with the individual bulb colors with the app.

    Great led light bulbs

    Posted .

    These bulbs are nice, they work just as expected. I dont yet have the Hue Hub to controll them via the Hue App, or through my Google Home. I plan to get one as a gift for the holidays, or buy one after myself. So I cant comment on theyre full functionality. But as a lightbulb these work great and provide plenty of light on my bedroom nightstands.

    I don’t know how I went through life not knowing to switch to these type of lights? The PH LB is the greatest invention ever! It was extremely easy to install and it run on bluetooth and not WiFi so if your WiFi gets cut off for whatever reason you’re still going to be able to turn on your lights. I installed these on a ceiling fan that had 2 conventional light bulbs and I had to make an effort to turning it off/on. Not anymore, with the LB’s I’m able to turn the lights on/off within a matter of a few seconds without and problems. I could be laying in bed trying to sleep and I could dim the light right from the app and make them into “night lights.” I absolutely love these and I would recommend them to any other fellow lazy people out there. Lol.

I can also control the five different hues (warm white, soft white, white, daylight white, and cool white) from Alexa my Alexa app on my phone

    Love my Hue White, but these are so much better!

    Posted .

    I previously purchased the Starter Kit with two Hue White bulbs. After being impressed with the easy setup and flawless operation, I decided to give the Hue White Ambiance a try. I was wooed by their ability to alter the color temp along with the more basic features of wireless control of on/off and dimming. So I unboxed them and swapped them in a lamp in my living room. Turn both sockets and they turn on by default. Launched the Hue app, and they were discovered immediately. So I created a room, assigned them and was adjusting the levels within about two minutes. The color temp adjustment makes a big difference. No longer are you limited to the color of the blue when you buy it. My husband and I have different opinions on what looks best. I tend to go warmer, he tends to go more stark white. But with these we can find a happy medium, or just vary them based on the mood or outdoor conditions. Another neat part is the app. It allows for easy setup and assignments to vary “rooms”. Plus you can use geofencing to control operation. I have mine set to activate the living room lights when I come home. But I also enabled the option to only activate if it is after sundown. So if I just go out and return during the day, they don’t turn on when it’s still daylight. One more feature that sold me on these, was that from the Hue app I can copy all the setting over to Apple HomeKit. So now I can control them from the Hue app, my Google Home Mini or any Siri device. (iPad, iPhone, AppleTV) Yep, these are definitely keepers. When my brother-in-law asked what we could use for Christmas, our first response was more Hues! And I will likely be buying several more once I can wade through all the competing standards to decide what other home automation devices I should get. (e.g. wall outlets, switches, security monitoring, etc)

    Love these things

    Managed to get these on sale but my entire house is set up with all Philips HUE light bulbs. Some of them are these White Ambiance which allow you to get that ultra white adjustment with the app. The rest of the house has the basic HUE lights and then in other parts I have the LED strips as well the color lights in some locations and outside just to mess with the neighbors. As long as you have the Philips Hub you're set and setting up and adding new bulbs literally takes a couple minutes. The App takes a slight learning curve but once you're locked in and logged in you can control them from anywhere and do not even need to be home to adjust the lights as well. Also ? the Timers is nice when it get's dark outside and a nice security option to change the lights around to auto turn off and on. Pricey ? Yes these all can be but I haven't had one bulb go out on me. Some of mine are about 3 years old if not older. So that covers the durability side of these as well. Enjoy these are worth the money hands down.

    I bought the Philips Hue along with a wemo smart outlet to explore the options for security lighting. After setting up Hue and playing with it for a few days, I returned the wemo. I bought the starter kit with 2 dimable white lights for the bedroom and the white ambient lights for the living room and study. Setup with the Hue app on iOS was easy. Then I set up the Alexa skill. Alexa was a little more complicated because I was already using a Honeywell thermostat in the living room and there were a few ambiguities. Also, although Alexa imported the scenes from the Hue app, it did not enable them. One I enabled them, they work well. “Alexa, turn on tropical twilight in the living room” sets a low level of “warm” light which is perfect for watching TV. One pleasant surprise was then even the basic white dimable can be controlled by scenes. “Alexa, turn on nightlight in the bedroom” turns on the dimmest light. New scenes can be created with the Hue app and eventually become available to Alexa. I was able to connect the Hue to Apple’s HomeKit but since I do not own a HomePod, I do not use it that much. Summary: not the cheapest way to automate home lighting, but for about $100 for starter kit and two additional ambient white lights, a great way to start.

    Simple 5000K capable WHITE bulbs

    Posted .

    I'm a newly huge fan of the HUE system. I have a decent integration and quite a few bulbs, lights and Accessories (dimmer switch & motion detection) and I use IFTTT, Alexa and Google Assistant. These lights offer a nice color range -- from traditional "Soft White" (2700K) to a Daylight / blueish color (5000K). Setup was a snap with the Hue App - I added a 'new room', then I powered up one light at a time, (so I know which one I'm working with, as to not name them incorrectly), added them to the App and assign them to the newly created room. Once that was done, I just opened Alexa and scanned for Smart Home devices - and Unlinked / Linked Google to Hue (and reassigned EVERY bulb again) and that was it. Here's some Alexa Gold -- if you've ever have to re-configure your Alexa / Hue configuration, you'd have noticed that Alexa won't 'forget' the old stuff, like Google Home does. To fix that, go here: alexa.amazon.com and select Smart Home, Devices & Forget All. Then, a rescan will get everything clean from Hue. Like Google Home, without IFTTT, you aren't able to change these to a Scene -- say "Nightlight" as you'd see in the Hue App. You need to create a custom Applet in IFTTT with a trigger word like - "Nightlight Bathroom 4" - where it'd interact with IFTTT and HUE and subsequently change the scene to Nightlight in Bathroom 4. Or, if you muck with it too much & just want it back to the Hue scene "Bright" -- yep, another IFTTT Applet & off you go ... or use the App. Overall, if you want to use the App and that's it - perfect. If you want to use the 1984-style telescreen-esque devices like Alexa and/or Google Home, you have to change your ways a bit, or just go back to the App. Either way, 5 Stars here!

    Philips Hue White Ambience A19

    |
    Posted .

    I'm a novice with home automation. I reviewed many different wireless light bulbs including Osram, TP-Link, Feit Bluetooth, etc. I arrived at using Philips Hue for the following reasons: 1. Ease of set up - Download the Hue app, connect the bridge, install light bulbs, power on light bulbs, bridge locates light bulbs, you control light bulbs via app. All in all the whole set up took maybe a few minutes. 2. Apple HomeKit and Alexa - I utilize both Siri and Alexa to control this light system by voice. I'll admit that using Alexa is a little easier because you don't have to say "Hey" with Alexa like you do Siri. 3. Timers - My lights turn on when I pull in the drive way and turn off when I leave my network. Still cool every time I get home. 4. Scenes - I've purchased 21 bulbs so far and it's really cool to set a scene to a mood with the color changing and white Ambiance lights. Energize to concentrate to relax to read to any of the other many white ambient combos in between, these bulbs deliver an array of white lighting options. 5. Energy efficient. These bulbs, in theory, should last a VERY long time. I'm excited to see the energy bill as I'm assuming it's going to decrease in a big way. A few things that may take getting used to: 1. Light switches - you have to learn to leave them on for total automation. This is still a work in progress in my house. 2. Depending on the strength of your wifi, connection issues can happen. I have 30 Mbps broadband and have experienced only one connection issue on my home network with one bedroom bulb, one time. I plan to get a wifi range extender to ensure complete coverage. 3. The Hue App - it works for its intended purpose but I feel it can be made even better and more intuitive in the future. I'm sure updates will happen as the Hue Community grows and like I said, it works for its current intended purpose. I fully recommend these bulbs and the Philips Hue system. It's cool, it's energy efficient, it's easy. Get some.

    Great 90% of the time.

    Posted .

    The Philips Hue White Ambiance is the first smart light bulb I've ever owned or used. For the most part I've been very impressed with the functionality of this bulb and the features that Philips has packed into these bulbs. I've always thought the idea of being able to control my light via Google Home or my Smartphone was really cool but, never really thought I'd need or really use all of the colors that come with the traditional Hue bulb. And on top of that the price tag has always deterred me from purchasing. While these bulbs are still on the more expensive side, as far as light bulbs go, I think they really offer so cool features for the price. My Smartphone: I currently use the Samsung Smart things as my smart home hub and control most everything through voice with my Google home. I wanted something that could interact with both of these to be able to use voice control and run routines that I have set with Smart Things. The Philips hue works very well with both of these products. My biggest complaint is the need for a second Philips hue hub on top of my Smart Things hub. I understand that Philips offers a lot of functionality with their hub but, I feel like being able to use these bulbs without a second hub could be done and would reduce the amount of clutter and boxes I have in my cabinet. Setup: setup was fairly straightforward, a few taps and I was ready to go. Connecting to my Smart Things hub and Google Home was no more difficult that a few clicks. Overall the setup process was painless. Using the bulbs: I was extremely surprised at all of the different colors and scenes that the hue app offers. I had expected to be able to set the bulbs to a few colors (soft white, bright white, daylight, etc.) However the hue app let's you fine tune the color to any color temperature in between. I think this is really cool and not really sure why you would need any additional colors. Few complaints: My biggest complaint is what happens when the light switch gets turned off. I know there really isn't a good solution to this and is more inherent in smart bulbs as a whole but, when the lights get turned off the colors don't come back to the last settings and instead revert to a default set color. What is really annoying is that it seems that two of my older hue bulbs default to a different color. Since all four bulbs are in the same fan, when the switch gets flipped I'm left with different color bulbs in my fan. My next complaint is the when the bulbs just don't work. Granted this happens very infrequently but, I will have an occasion where bulbs will start changing different colors and nothing matches up. It usually resolves itself if I just change the color of the bulb but, still somewhat irritating. Overall I think this is a great product. If you've ever thought having different color temperature light bulbs at different times would be useful, I think these are the way to go.

    Neat bulbs, user friendly app, fun to have!

    Posted .

    These Philips hue smart LED bulbs are can be controlled via an app to turn lights off/on, dim and change color. It’s my first experience with smart bulbs, lets see what the hype is all about! Setup: You do need to have a Philips bridge to use these bulbs. (1st or 2nd generation bridge will work). The bridge is simple to setup, you connect it to your network via wired cat 5 cable, use the “Philips hue” app to search for the hub and press the button on the hub to sync, takes about 5 minutes. Usability & usefulness: One of the things I didn’t understand before testing these is why would anyone spend the money on a hub and bulbs when you can just replace your wall switch with an app controlled switch. One of the reasons might be the ease of use, simply replace your existing bulbs with these A19 screw in bulbs (much easier compared to rewiring a switch). Once the bulbs are in place, with the app on your phone, you can turn the lights on and off, dim/brighten, change the color from bright white to warmer yellow lighting, or anything in between including light blue tones (there as another hue bulb that allows you to change to all sorts of colors, red, green, blue etc). The app has preset settings that some may find useful such as “Bright”, “dimmed” and “nightlight”. I was testing these bulbs with 2 hanging lights on the center island of my kitchen. Being able to dim the lights or change it to different shades of white/off white etc, was something I never thought I needed. It did come in handy a few times, such as watching a movie, I didn’t want the kitchen to be very bright, but bright enough to walk in and find the bag of popcorn. You can also setup “routines” for example, when you wake up, the lights come on or sleep and they’ll turn off at a certain time. They can also be set to turn on or off based on your location (based on smart phone GPS). Keep in mind that whichever lights you swap these bulbs out with, you have to leave the switch “on”. They won’t work if the switch is in the off position, this is where changing a smart switch would work better. AI compatibility: These Philips Hue bulbs are compatible with Alexa, Google Home and if you have the Gen 2 hub, they work with Apple HomeKit as well. I tested it with Alexa and it worked fine. You simply name the lights, such as “kitchen” and say “Alexa, turn on kitchen lights”. The commands that Alexa knows are fairly limited, they include turning lights on and off, dim, brighten, make lights warmer or cooler. Conclusion: These bulbs are neat, they work great, but to me, they’re more of a novelty, not a must have. To get started with the hub and bulbs, they’re a bit pricy which is why I've rated them 4 star instead of 5. They would be worth it if you plan to use the hub to control additional lighting, such as the Philips strip LED lighting to light up underneath your kitchen cabinets.
