    Love my hue lights

    I now have a total of 20 hue bulbs most are the color and I love them. You can set routines, the color schemes are awesome. I wake up every morning to dimmed lights and can go downstairs without falling because my kitchen light is programmed to come on at 4:30 am. When I’m ready to leave the house all the lights are programmed to turn off. It is great especially if you travel as it always looks like someone is home.

    This came as part of a bundle when I purchased an Echo Show 2nd Generation so I didnt go specifically to purchase this bulb; it was an add on. But what a great little gift it turned out to be. I didn’t need a bridge to set it up since the new Echo Show has the Zigbee hub built in. Took about 3 min to get it up and running using the Alexa app; I am going to purchase more. I highly recommend this bulb.

    I bought the Phillips Hue colored light kit and multiple white bulbs to work with the kit. I use it with my Alexa. I love it so much I bought one for my parents, too. I love that I never have to turn the light switch on again. I just say, "Alexa, turn on the bedroom light" and it does. It's absolutely wonderful. The light is bright and very dependable. I have been using them for a year and have had no problems. I don't think I can live without these bulbs or at least I don't want too!

    Amazing Bulb, Effortlessly Integrates

    I purchased this as an add on to my Phillips Hue Starter Kit. It integrated seamlessly with my existing system, working with just a push of the button. Customization of the bulb setting took less than a minute. Now I am able to control the lighting in my two primary rooms (Bedroom, Living Room) from anywhere simultaneously and independent of each other. Every time my wife or kids forget to turn off the light, I can shut them off with my phone or via voice control with Amazon Alexa or Google Home (I own both).

    Although it's cool to turn your lights on with your voice, these can be frustrating. The interface between the Alexa devices and the Phillips bridge it touchy. You have to state the lights name EXACTLY. You can't say "Bedroom light on" when it's listed as "Bedroom lights". Also the inner network between the bulbs is weak. Sometimes devices are not "reachable". As far as changing color on the color bulbs, the scenes part of the app sucks. Work great with your smartphone but as far as voice control forget it.

    Decent bulb that works with smart devices

    The advantage of this bulb is that it has a softer light that standard LED bulbs, and creates less glare. If you're looking for a bright, in some cases harsher light, than this isn't the bulb to get. It works great in the house but might not be great for an office if you want a brighter light. The bulb responds well, but I did have one go out after a year. There is a warranty but the claim process is convoluted.

    This is the 1st smart light I ever owned, I had to buy a Hue bridge to make it work so I bought the starter kit with the Bridge , power supply & 2 more bulbs on a best buy sale! I had it set up in about 15 min. I also linked them with my Amazon echo dot so I can dim them, turn them on & off etc. from my couch with just the sound of my voice. You can connect up to 50 bulbs to the bridge. I am waiting for a sale on more bulbs so I can add to my smart hub. its my start to a "smart home".

    So Convenient

    Purchased the Philips Smart LED Bulb to use with a Echo Dot (3rd Generation). It is so convenient when reading at night to be able to turn the bedroom lamp off by voice instead of having to get up. Also, when I go into a room with my arms full I can conveniently tell the light to come on. Plus the lighting has such warm undertones that it gives the room a soft and cozy touch. I plan on buying more.

    These lights are absolutely amazing. While they are expensive, you only live once. What better way to live your life than to never have to get up from bed to turn the lights off, turn all of the lights off when you're about to watch a movie, or turn certain lights on via Siri or OK Google when you're hands are tied, all while conserving energy with the energy-efficient LED bulbs. These are amazing. Once you have them, you'll realize what a great investment that they were and how you couldn't imagine your life without them.

    i started with Philips hue starter kit about a year ago and now my whole apartment is setup with Philips hue lamps , light strips and blooms , a little pricey but great quality . i can turn the lights on with my cell phone via Phillips hue app or using Alexa, Google home or Siri via my voice. when watching movies i just tell alexa to dim the lights to %10 and it makes perfect lighting for watching movies.

    These light bulbs are fantastic. They save money because they are led, but the best feature is their “smart” capability. Being able to control them through alexa (or similar products) and through the app is what really makes them worth the money. We took a trip to europe and were able to not only control them instantly from there, but could also put them on a schedule that would vary the on/off time by a 30 min window making it appear as though they aren’t on a timer.

    Great intro into home automation

    These lights are great and simple to use. If you are looking to get your toes wet into home automation this is a great place to start. I originally bought the kit that included three color lights and the hub and have been slowly adding these white lights anywhere I can. It is so great not to have to go around the house turning off lights but while in bed tell Siri goodnight and all the lights turn off. Also getting the kids in the house is easier when the lights are automatically on when we arrive home.

    This was the best investment I made besides my Echo. I am habitually leaving the lights on at night. Never again and when it does instead of me having to reach or move to turn it off I can whisper to Alexa to turn it on off. It’s done I don’t get woken up by the bright light. We can turn them on simultaneously and off. Love, Love, Love them! I just suggested them to one of my girlfriends. I am now suggesting them to you. Oh wait did I say they help lower your light bill? Enjoy!

    Connects easily to Echo Show built-inhub

    Setup was super easy and it dims and brightens on command as well as the on off function. I have tried to verbally dim it to a percent brightness setting, but either can't find the correct syntax or you just have to do it in increments by asking alexa to dim it multiple times. You can also dim it with the sliding bar that you can bring up on the Echo show.

    I bought additional bulbs for other rooms in my house to compliment the hue bridge kit I purchased previously. These are standard bulbs from the hue family. They work great and are plenty bright. My only wish is that Hue would make more decorative bulbs instead of just standard A19 or GU10 bulbs. I guess that’s coming down the road a bit. Overall very happy with the Hue lighting system.

    I have had these bulbs for almost 1 1/2 years and still love them. Getting up in the morning I turn on "nightlight". I have my chicken coop set up to work like the sun rise, slowly taking 1/2 hour till it is 100%. Already in bed and the kids left the downstairs light on; simple to turn off. They are so much brighter than the regular bulbs I used to get and the shades of white are perfect for every situation. So far they are lasting, as they should at the price for one bulb.

    I received this Hue bulb as part of my Echo Plus purchase. Was excited to be able to use dimming function through Alexa...this was not the case. I need to purchase additional products or purchase a newer floor lamp with smart capabilities. I can use use the dimming function through the Alexa app on my phone. Really want voice control capability.

    I purchased the Philips Hue color ambiance starter kit, and several of these White LED lights to add for my other rooms that do not need color bulbs. They work great! Being able to control the lights from my smart phone is a great feature. "Did I forget to turn off the lights before I left? Well let me check." With a quick click, you can check and turn off those lights. I also sycned my Philips Hue lights with my Amazon Echo to easily turn on/off lights by using voice prompts. Highly recommend these lights.

    If you're looking for a cheap introduction to the smart home life, then look no further. I already have a wide collection of hue bulbs, but I wanted to try these out in my bathroom to see if it would be worth it for the rest of my "minor" rooms. Absolutely worth it. The color is surprisingly warm and you can't beat the price. If you were looking for an introduction into the smart bulb community or just want to add on to your preexisting hue collection for cheap, then this is the bulb for you.

    I'm very please with the Phillips hue. After some initial set up issues I was able to get everything worked out. It's nice to come home and be able to have the lights come on before I get there as well as the ability to turn the lights on when we're away. I hi it's nice to come home and be able to have the lights come on before I get there as well as the ability to turn lights on when were away.
