    Smart light bulbs, as expected

    They worked for me as expected. I've waited for the price of smarts bulbs to drop to about $10 per bulb, and these in a 4 pack just barely made it. I've tried one other brand (a single bulb for about $10) and the setup and result is about the same as for these. The thing I'm concerned about is whether or not they will continue to work for many years to come. There's of course the issue of the LED burning out or failing, but also will the technology to operate these and other present-day smart devices be overtaken by newer wireless methods and protocols such that these devices become inoperable due to being incompatible with the new equipment and software, e.g. wifi routers, and potentially non-backward compatible apps needed to configure them, or who knows what else might change in the future that would make them obsolete.

    Philips Hue White A19 WIFi Smart LED Bulb 4pk

    These bulbs are the bomb! Easy to set up except for renaming them if you wish. That's a little confusing for me anyway. Otherwise, they dim very well, are white only, and work in three way light switch also. Work very well with Alexa as long as you have Alexa and WiFi /network working properly. I find using these bulbs better than using switches or standard type bulbs because I don't get noise in them and they seem to dim lower. I took one star off because I found it somewhat confusing to name them in my particular set up but i should probably have called customer service for help since I'm a novice at this stuff.

    Most useful part of home automation

    Face it...who needs a washer or dryer automated? But lights? When walking up the steps with hands full of laundry, I can ask for the lights to turn on. When I forget to turn off a bedroom light before getting in bed, I don't have to get out of bed! When leaving the house, I can turn them all off with one command. Hue app is not consistent between iOS and Android. And Google home interface is more limited than hue app. They need to fix that. Would give it 5 stars except for the cost. If it is reliable over time, I will add a star. Would definitely buy again.

    I like them a lot... I ended up getting the color ones a month later. Replaced the whites with colors in my living room, bedroom, and dining room.. I moved these white ones to the hallway and kitchen.. I like the fact that not only I can use the app to control my lights, but also with me google home mini.. and set routines .. so I barely even need to open the app.

    As basic smart lighting goes, you can't go wrong with Phillips. These bulbs do not change color though. Pro: There is no extra hub you have to plug in to make them work - thus sparing an ethernet port on your router. They are smart controlled, so you can program them with Alexa routines. Con: There is no app that comes with them, you can't program other features like auto dusk on, timers, etc. You actually have to run/say the Alexa routines to turn them on or off.

    The Phillips Hue White bulbs are stellar. You can dim them too. The only thing I don't like about them is the type of white light they emit. I have the Color Ambiance bulbs as well and can choose the "warmth" of the white light. These ones are pretty warm (more of a yellowish white than a blueish white). But they're still an amazing product! I have them on all my outside lights and in my basement. And my Echo Dot will turn them on and off as well.

    These lights are great for the smart home. The only downside I've found so far is that they do have a bit of connectivity issues at times. This can become even more annoying when you have as many as I do, saying you want it to turn on 4 lights in the living room but only one or none turn on. Or asking for all the lights to turn off at once and only half of them turn off. this does seem to be a bit of an issue more with the voice commands through a smart speaker, however it does happen within the app sometimes as well.

    I was able t get a free starter kit of Hue bulbs and we have expanded that out to 3 rooms and a studio in my home. We use Google home devices to turn them on & off and to adjust the lighting. The best part is when there's a power outage everything stays programed unlike the Wemo plugs we had that drove us nuts because we had to reprogram them or try to re-pair them to the router over and over and over again.

    Lights work great with Alexa

    Really liked the lights and were easy to install with Alexa. You do not need a hub, but you may consider purchasing one if you are prone to power outages. We lost power the other night and when the power came back on, all the lights in the house turned on to 100% brightness. The only way to prevent this is to have a Hue Hub and get the latest updates. Still, the bulbs are great (a little pricey).

    No these don’t have all the fancy colors, but they are great filler bulbs for fixtures around the house. Unless you have weekly raves in your home you’re not going to be switching to colors that often. My wife and I like falling asleep with the red light, but we used these everywhere except our living room and bedroom because they are roughly 1/5 the price of the color changing bulbs.

    I haven’t had it long but it looks like it works as advertised I’m looking forward to using it each and every day there’s a lot of possibilities to explore with this unit the lightbulbs are very bright and could be dimmed to different levels. I look forward to enabling several different services and products by using this. Hopefully I can use this as my smart home hub

    I bought this as a replacement as one of our lights stopped working. It lights up but it will not connect. I love these lights and we have them in almost every room in the house. It was only a few months old. For the price they are not to bad. We have noticed a drop in our electricity since we installed them in our home. We love them but things like this are bound to happen.

    Great color of light to mimic lamp lights. The dimmable feature makes them ideal for all of my lamps in my home and makes them uniform with the same color light. Only reason for 4 stars is that I wish the single color bulbs were offered in different shades like a yellow or a white light. You can get the color changing shades of white bulbs but those are much more expensive.

    I have 3 versions of hue lights. They all work as expected. They were easy to set up with free iOS app. I wish it was easier to setup a whole house hue configuration. I use Alexa most of the time to control them. I occasionally use the dimmer that I purchased with a starter kit and the iOS app as well. I didn’t need color in whole house. I love these lights

    I bought these bulbs to use with our recently purchased Echo products. They are a breeze to set up. I installed these in several lamps throughout the house. It is a nice way to conveniently light a room when you walk in. An additional plus is the ability to dim lights by voice command. Now I have to remember not to turn them off using the switch on the lamp.

    Love being able to control my lights with Alexa. They add a ton of convenience. I give 4 stars because I find it more convenient to have the leviton switches than the bulbs. The build occasionally disconnect and it is difficult to reconnect and then it's frustrating that if someone comes into the home and flicks the switch I no longer have control over the light.

    Sometimes you have to enter the number manually because the bridge cannot find every light bulb in the pack. Also, when giving Alexa voice commands to turn off the lights it is not always successful. Sometimes I have to say it to her three times before the lightbulb responds. That aside, wonderful product.

    Have had these and others just like them for some time and can't complain. Brightness it good, too. Would give 5 star but you have to wait for the firmware update and it takes some time. Overall they are just what I was looking for. I am a tech so the setup was pretty simple for me. Just follow the instructions and done. :o)

    Out of the country or across the street, controlling lights are no problem. Almost flawless technology. Google Home or iPhone turns lights on or off or whatever percentage of brightness I want. Slightly expensive but that’s I what I expect for new technology. I will continue to add more lights in the future. Great security feature.

    Philip Lights with Alexa

    I have these lights in all my bed rooms. They link with Alexa. I gave it a 4 star rating, because you also need to purchase a bridge that will cost extra $$. I also gave it a 4 star rating because you can't change the color like the philips hue. You can only dim or turn them on/off with Alexa. Also works with the apple watch.
