    It's good for small homes or apartments.

    The Philips Hue bulbs are actually a very excellent product in Smart Homes. But actually gets a little too hectic when you have a large home with multiple rooms. The ability to switch them on and off and change the ambience and settings took way more much more time than it actually would take to just switch the dimmer on or off that I used to have. Good for theatre rooms or a room in your house but it makes things more complicated when trying to replace all your bulbs. I would wait for a new system that actually replaces the switches and makes it a lot more integrated and easy to use.

    A mixed bag

    When these work they are amazing, but there is some wonky-ness at play. In all fairness, I’m not certain if the problem lies at the feet of Apple or Phillips. My biggest frustration is sometimes lights with in a scene will not come on, or will be dimmed. Smart electronics are to provide convienince and these sometimes make you wish you’d just have gotten up and flipped the wall switch. On a good note Phillips is the most likely company to stay in the smart light game. Hopefully future updates will smooth things out.

    confused about purchase

    I was not told that I needed to purchase a hub for the smart bulbs. I did buy one for my husband but the gift for my daughter of smart bulbs are not compatible with their echo first generation. I guess the sales rep did not mention this to me or i would have purchased another hub. Now I will wait for the sale price to return I guess. This would be a 5 star if I had been informed of this.

    White is NOT White

    Got these for my living room thinking white would be closer to the daylight style lights. These are definitely more 'yellow' than i expected. Might be good for some reading lamps perhaps. Returned them for the Ambient style to incorporate more of the 'blue' spectrum that i anticipated with these. Happy with my ambient bulbs over these.

    They were easy to set up and work as advertised. It would be nice if you didn’t have to have a hub that has to be connected via ethernet to your router as it makes for a pile of electronics where these things are supposed to cutting down on such things. It would also be nice if they were rated for fully enclosed fixtures.

    Warm lights

    These lights are definitely more affordable than their color changing counterparts, but they are definitely quite warm. I’m not the biggest fan of a yellowish light, but they’d be nice in table lamps. They’re also not too bright. In short, great for lamps and affordable.

    I bought this to start my new venture into an automated home, but the realized that Phillips only likes Phillips. I returned this after I found out that Phillips only supports third own products, but other, less costly, manufacturers allow a broader array of add ons.

    I bought 3 four packs and 3 of the 12 bulbs did not work. Best Buy quickly replaced them and after that initial disappointment, everything worked great. East to set up and customize routines through my Echo Plus. I also think that I’ll save money in the long run using the dimming feature.

    Bulbs are great. App? Not so much.

    The concept and bulbs themselves are fantastic. However, the app makes pairing with voice assistants annoying. My family members can control all lights in the house, including my bedroom, if they are vague with their commands and there is no way to disable this.

    I bought these thinking they would work with my Google Home right out of the box... but, after reading a long drawn out paper.. I find out I need some kind of other Hub... not happy. So, I'll be taking these back and find something else.

    The light bulbs worked great for a month but then all of a sudden were not compatible with Alexa. They work with Siri off of a single device and work with the Hue app, but the whole reason we bought them was under the assumption they worked with Alexa.

    You need a hub to control these lights

    I purchased these lights for 2 reasons - Price and hub was not required (oh but it is). If you want to control these lights you will have to purchase a hub. Once I purchased the hub everything was grand.

    Good addition to my Alexa controlled home but a few bulbs had to be repaired and finally stopped working after a few months. For the cost better reliability was not asking too much

    I purchased a 4 pack of these bulbs. 3 worked. 4th wasn’t recognized by echo plus smart hub. I am going to return the one bulb to,the store for a refund or an exchange. Hoping that goes well, as I threw out the packaging.

    I didn't realize I would need to purchase the bridge for extra bucks to be able to use these with my phone. I hope they last a very, very long time to make them worth how much we spent...

    I like these bulbs and they work great , but i have to give them 3 stars cause they only come in 60 watts no brighter. I just wish phillips would make them in a 75 watt or brighter bulb

    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.

    Easy to set up to WiFi and you can control with a smartphone, tablet, or Alexa/Google home. One did however fail within 6 months

    I'm not sure if it's my router or the bulbs, pretty sure it may be a combonation, the cheaper bulbs are delayed and slower the Color more expensive, work better. $$

    Kind of a pain in the butt. Great concept, it needs a switch over ride so when you shut the lights off and don’t have a device in hand to turn the light back on.
