    Fairly simple set up. Pair lights to hub. But had a little problem setting up routines. All lights would come on and off. Good for what I wanted which was to control front and back door lights.

    I really enjoy the smart lighting system and it works great when only connected with the philips hue hub. When connected to other devices such as Alexa, the lights do not connect or respond very well to commands.

    I haven’t been impressed with the programming on these. They come on when I have it set, but never go off on their own. I prefer using wemo switches or Levitron over these any day.

    These lights are great but I’m not crazy about the requirement for a hub. I also bought merkury smart bulbs and they don’t require a hub, do the same thing, and are cheaper

    Bought these for our kids and they love playing with the color. Only thing is when you make it normal lighten it isn’t that great.

    Create a fantastic party atmosphere with this Philips Hue A19 starter kit. Dinner gatherings are more intimate under its customizable glow, and game sessions are more enjoyable when lights are synced...

    Good option but the spare bulbs are pricey

    Good option to have control of light at home when at or away from home. But the spare bulbs are price. Equivalent options are available from other manufactures.

    I think the price it too high compared to competitors. The product does what it’s supposed to with the exception of going off line and having to reboot ( has happened once)

    Bought this with other Alexa items. One light always works on command, the other 3 might work by voice sometimes, but mostly through the Alexa app on my cell phone.

    Don't care for the Bridge....

    Once you get the Bridge to connect it seems to work well. But I had to try several times to connect to the bridge.

    I bought this as a gift for people that are renting an apartment and are not allowed to swap out switches. The lights perform well and integrates seamlessly to google home.

    Very easy to install but leaving the light switch ON to be able to work, I don't think so. I like Wemo much much better since they will work even if the light switch is OFF.

    Would be nice to change color temperature. While these bulbs are dimmable, it is necessary to invest considerably more in colored bulbs to change "white" hues

    Lights are more yellow than white. Get the white ambiance kit for that white color, bought them for the hub mostly as it was on sale for Black Friday.

    The concept of smart lightbulbs is great, but it’s still too expensive. Each bulb is about $30, and just for convenience.

    You can turn lights on and off using google home, but you can't set scenes using it. It was a bit frustrating for me. But overall, good product.

    Good but have had issues when trying to edit room names used with our Alexa device. Would be handy if bulbs were numbered when setting up.
