    Good, but look for defective strips

    I have purchased a few of these extension kits so far, and I have setup most of them. The extension kits work as the instructions indicate they should. I was able to add one or more of these strips to the main Lightstrip Plus strand. Everything easily connects together, and there are marks around every 12 inches that allow you to shorten the strip if needed. After setting everything up, I would have given the product four stars due to how easy it was to add these strips into the primary lights (I took off a star due to the lack of places I can install these strips because the strips do not bend side to side much at all). I did some basic testing after the install, and everything appeared to be working perfectly. However, a short time after the install, I started playing around with the lights more on Halloween with my kids. What I discovered was that two of my extension strips were defective. I discovered the problem as I started testing the various hues of each color available in the Hue App. As the lights changed, I realized that there was about a 12" section on each extension strip that did not match the rest of the lights on that strip when changed to certain colors. This was noticed on strips that had not been cut, or shorted in any way. I have included pictures of the lights to help you see what I mean. The issue was only noticeable when selecting the light colors seen in the photos. Any other color, and the lights matched the rest of the Lightstrip Plus perfectly. I ended up taking the two defective extension strips back to Best Buy, which they returned without a hassle. I bought these the day they were first available in the store, so maybe there was a slight production issues with some of these in the beginning. The rest of my extension strips seem to work fine. However, because of my experience with the two I returned, make sure you test out all possible colors by using the Hue App (or something similar) in order to be sure you have a fully functioning extension strip.

    A couple of issues, but otherwise I am happy

    Several weeks after installing them under my kitchen cabinets, these fell off, so I will have to reattach them with something else. Apparently the glue is not as strong. The other thing I was hoping to be able to buy, was a non-lit connector between two light strips. My kitchen cabinets are about a foot apart from each other, and I don't need lights there. It is actually kind of ugly and distasteful how these are hanging up in the air. It doesn't make any sense for something as simple as that to be missing from the market. If anyone has a suggestion how to resolve this, I am open. The third thing I am missing, is a simple on/off switch on the control box. If I don't have any automation, it would be nice to have it. For the money, something like this should have been included in my humble opinion. Other than that, everything else about these is great. The brightness is great - way better than what I expected. The software integration is excellent too. Alexa complements them beautifully.

    These extensions are really cool and are a great way to expand your lightstrip to whatever length you want. However, I do wish they were longer. For $30, they’re quite short. Believe me, I understand pretty much all Philips Hue products are on the expensive side (I own tons of Hue products), but this one kinda bothers me. The main reason it bothers me is because I honestly cannot tell you how many of the extensions I’ve bought!!! That goes to show you how short they really are for the price and how many you’ll have to buy in order to complete the project you’re working on. I’m too afraid to add up how many I’ve actually bought, because at $30 apiece I’m sure it’ll be several hundreds of dollars!!! Probably close to $500!!!!!

    I used this to add to the light strip plus for added length to provide backlighting for my 55" TV. Pros: -Good lighting -colors matched light strip plus Cons: -Value is not there as far as length vs price is concerned. The light strip plus is made just short enough where larger applications will require extension(s). At this price in addition to the light strip plus cost I'm not sure it's worth it. -Connection point to light strip plus is good for consistent clean flat lines, but it will come apart easily if not stabilized so it won't move. If you need to bend a corner or go over uneven spots at the connection point forget it.

    It works great with the lightstrip, makes it longer and is a necessity if you want to have a longer section covered. The only reason I deducted 2 starts from this product is that the connection point with the lightstrip is very bad. If you barely touch it the lights the extension will disconnect or even worse, change to a completely different color. It took me about 30 plus minutes to install it, especially if you have it attached to something you will have problems connecting them. Other than the connection issues I do like the product once it is set up and working properly. On another note it is a bit expensive as are all other hue products.

    Product is good works well! I am a little disappointed that the extensions are so short for the price or that there aren’t multiple length options available. Connecting the extensions are a bit tricky but that may just my age telling on me. Was easy to connect everything to the Home Network! Pricey and lack of length options are my only reason for not giving more stars. Product is easy to set up and works well with my other Hue products, Apple home kit and Alexia

    I love these lights but the reason i wanted it was to extend the strip i had. They didn't fit together.i had a earlier version i guess so they changed how the ends were and fit.so i ended up buying a new strip of it and adding this to it. It did work then but unfortunately my project ended up having to be changed and more expensive than i hoped. So check to make sure the one you're trying to extend is current with this add on.

    i had to return two sets of these due to a high pitch screaming noise coming from the power cell. Apparently this didn't go away with the latest unit. Solution is to keep the brightness down. If this is for color ambiance and you dont plan on letting it light your room at a higher setting you should be good otherwise stay away.

    So I have 13 lights total I think and I love the convenience of them but the white ambiance and the color ones just aren't quite there. They're just not burnt enough. The Lifx color light is over a thousand lumens AND you don't need a bridge. That being said the home kit cpatibility is the reason I went with Philips Hue and I won't be looking back. Love them despite their drawbacks.

    They are a terrible value for the money and I almost feel sick to my stomach when I buy them. You get so little for so much money. The length of both the main unit and the extension is really pathetic and you wont be able to complete an area of your home without buying several of the extensions.

    I expected to be able to bend this and or cut it and use "elbows" to make it go round turns... you cant do either of these things without royally messing it up... if you get this plan to use it in a straight line ONLY . .... also the tape on the back is very weak. I ended up glueing it.

    With it if you really wanna shine. I felt it was with the money considering what I spent on renovating the room. I have 40 hue lights in my house and no matter where I place the hub, at least 3 or 4 are unreachable by the hub. Hues promise that the more lights you have the better the system works is lies.

    The Hue lightstrips have always felt a bit overpriced, and while this is a nice way to get a few more feet without needing to buy a whole new one, the extension itself is as expensive as some of the other lightstrips you can buy.

    I like this item and it makes my kitchen look good however, the adhesives the strip came with doesn’t stick well and they come down all the time so I will have to figure something else out. Please fix this!!

    Bought this to extend my original light strip behind my TV. I wanted to continue the light strip behind my media center, but the connector is only 2" long. I didn't want to see the lights on the wall. Returned it for a full kit

    These are really fun and work well. A bit expensive, but if you already have a smart home setup and other Hue lights it is a great addition. Requires the full LED Light Strip, this is just the extension.

    Easy to install and setup. Great quality. only negative aspect is that I feel that the extension length is somewhat awkward and if you have to cut it then you have a wasted piece

    LED Strip works great but would recommend buying double stick tape as the tape that is on the strip it self is junk. Overall works great with home automation.

    Lighting options are great but they make a buzzing sound when on bright white and the sticky backing doesn’t always stick. We had to use double-sided tape in many areas.

    I am happy the Philips make this extend strip led light but they could it just make the 82" strip longer. the connector is a little fragile and it could break easy.
