    The Philips Hue White Ambiance is the first smart light bulb I've ever owned or used. For the most part I've been very impressed with the functionality of this bulb and the features that Philips has packed into these bulbs. I've always thought the idea of being able to control my light via Google Home or my Smartphone was really cool but, never really thought I'd need or really use all of the colors that come with the traditional Hue bulb. And on top of that the price tag has always deterred me from purchasing. While these bulbs are still on the more expensive side, as far as light bulbs go, I think they really offer so cool features for the price. My Smartphone: I currently use the Samsung Smart things as my smart home hub and control most everything through voice with my Google home. I wanted something that could interact with both of these to be able to use voice control and run routines that I have set with Smart Things. The Philips hue works very well with both of these products. My biggest complaint is the need for a second Philips hue hub on top of my Smart Things hub. I understand that Philips offers a lot of functionality with their hub but, I feel like being able to use these bulbs without a second hub could be done and would reduce the amount of clutter and boxes I have in my cabinet. Setup: setup was fairly straightforward, a few taps and I was ready to go. Connecting to my Smart Things hub and Google Home was no more difficult that a few clicks. Overall the setup process was painless. Using the bulbs: I was extremely surprised at all of the different colors and scenes that the hue app offers. I had expected to be able to set the bulbs to a few colors (soft white, bright white, daylight, etc.) However the hue app let's you fine tune the color to any color temperature in between. I think this is really cool and not really sure why you would need any additional colors. Few complaints: My biggest complaint is what happens when the light switch gets turned off. I know there really isn't a good solution to this and is more inherent in smart bulbs as a whole but, when the lights get turned off the colors don't come back to the last settings and instead revert to a default set color. What is really annoying is that it seems that two of my older hue bulbs default to a different color. Since all four bulbs are in the same fan, when the switch gets flipped I'm left with different color bulbs in my fan. My next complaint is the when the bulbs just don't work. Granted this happens very infrequently but, I will have an occasion where bulbs will start changing different colors and nothing matches up. It usually resolves itself if I just change the color of the bulb but, still somewhat irritating. Overall I think this is a great product. If you've ever thought having different color temperature light bulbs at different times would be useful, I think these are the way to go.

    These Philips hue smart LED bulbs are can be controlled via an app to turn lights off/on, dim and change color. It’s my first experience with smart bulbs, lets see what the hype is all about! Setup: You do need to have a Philips bridge to use these bulbs. (1st or 2nd generation bridge will work). The bridge is simple to setup, you connect it to your network via wired cat 5 cable, use the “Philips hue” app to search for the hub and press the button on the hub to sync, takes about 5 minutes. Usability & usefulness: One of the things I didn’t understand before testing these is why would anyone spend the money on a hub and bulbs when you can just replace your wall switch with an app controlled switch. One of the reasons might be the ease of use, simply replace your existing bulbs with these A19 screw in bulbs (much easier compared to rewiring a switch). Once the bulbs are in place, with the app on your phone, you can turn the lights on and off, dim/brighten, change the color from bright white to warmer yellow lighting, or anything in between including light blue tones (there as another hue bulb that allows you to change to all sorts of colors, red, green, blue etc). The app has preset settings that some may find useful such as “Bright”, “dimmed” and “nightlight”. I was testing these bulbs with 2 hanging lights on the center island of my kitchen. Being able to dim the lights or change it to different shades of white/off white etc, was something I never thought I needed. It did come in handy a few times, such as watching a movie, I didn’t want the kitchen to be very bright, but bright enough to walk in and find the bag of popcorn. You can also setup “routines” for example, when you wake up, the lights come on or sleep and they’ll turn off at a certain time. They can also be set to turn on or off based on your location (based on smart phone GPS). Keep in mind that whichever lights you swap these bulbs out with, you have to leave the switch “on”. They won’t work if the switch is in the off position, this is where changing a smart switch would work better. AI compatibility: These Philips Hue bulbs are compatible with Alexa, Google Home and if you have the Gen 2 hub, they work with Apple HomeKit as well. I tested it with Alexa and it worked fine. You simply name the lights, such as “kitchen” and say “Alexa, turn on kitchen lights”. The commands that Alexa knows are fairly limited, they include turning lights on and off, dim, brighten, make lights warmer or cooler. Conclusion: These bulbs are neat, they work great, but to me, they’re more of a novelty, not a must have. To get started with the hub and bulbs, they’re a bit pricy which is why I've rated them 4 star instead of 5. They would be worth it if you plan to use the hub to control additional lighting, such as the Philips strip LED lighting to light up underneath your kitchen cabinets.

    I've always been an early adopter and I still remember the day I watched the introduction of the original hue bulbs. I was immediately hooked and went and bought a start-up pack on the first day of availability. Over the past few years, I have continued to love my hue system (especially with the recent upgrade that made the system compatible with HomeKit), but noticed I seldom used the "colored" lights. Instead I used the "light recipes" that changed the temperature of the white light nearly every day. During the day I would switch the lights to the "concentrate" setting for higher temperature light (4000-5000K) and later in the day I would change over to the softer light temperature that most people are used to. So when I saw the the announcement that they would be releasing these bulbs I was ecstatic. Plus, they were going to be brighter (800 lumens vs 600 lumens of original model) and half the price! I have purchased a number of these bulbs over the past 2 months and highly recommend them to anyone interested in smart lighting. The colored lighting of hue is fun at first, but I feel most users don't often change their lighting to blue, red, and green after the first couple of weeks. The affordability and the practicality of these bulbs strike just the right balance for those interested in high quality "adjustable white" lights.

    I previously purchased the Starter Kit with two Hue White bulbs. After being impressed with the easy setup and flawless operation, I decided to give the Hue White Ambiance a try. I was wooed by their ability to alter the color temp along with the more basic features of wireless control of on/off and dimming. So I unboxed them and swapped them in a lamp in my living room. Turn both sockets and they turn on by default. Launched the Hue app, and they were discovered immediately. So I created a room, assigned them and was adjusting the levels within about two minutes. The color temp adjustment makes a big difference. No longer are you limited to the color of the blue when you buy it. My husband and I have different opinions on what looks best. I tend to go warmer, he tends to go more stark white. But with these we can find a happy medium, or just vary them based on the mood or outdoor conditions. Another neat part is the app. It allows for easy setup and assignments to vary “rooms”. Plus you can use geofencing to control operation. I have mine set to activate the living room lights when I come home. But I also enabled the option to only activate if it is after sundown. So if I just go out and return during the day, they don’t turn on when it’s still daylight. One more feature that sold me on these, was that from the Hue app I can copy all the setting over to Apple HomeKit. So now I can control them from the Hue app, my Google Home Mini or any Siri device. (iPad, iPhone, AppleTV) Yep, these are definitely keepers. When my brother-in-law asked what we could use for Christmas, our first response was more Hues! And I will likely be buying several more once I can wade through all the competing standards to decide what other home automation devices I should get. (e.g. wall outlets, switches, security monitoring, etc)

    Philips Hue White Ambience A19

    I'm a novice with home automation. I reviewed many different wireless light bulbs including Osram, TP-Link, Feit Bluetooth, etc. I arrived at using Philips Hue for the following reasons: 1. Ease of set up - Download the Hue app, connect the bridge, install light bulbs, power on light bulbs, bridge locates light bulbs, you control light bulbs via app. All in all the whole set up took maybe a few minutes. 2. Apple HomeKit and Alexa - I utilize both Siri and Alexa to control this light system by voice. I'll admit that using Alexa is a little easier because you don't have to say "Hey" with Alexa like you do Siri. 3. Timers - My lights turn on when I pull in the drive way and turn off when I leave my network. Still cool every time I get home. 4. Scenes - I've purchased 21 bulbs so far and it's really cool to set a scene to a mood with the color changing and white Ambiance lights. Energize to concentrate to relax to read to any of the other many white ambient combos in between, these bulbs deliver an array of white lighting options. 5. Energy efficient. These bulbs, in theory, should last a VERY long time. I'm excited to see the energy bill as I'm assuming it's going to decrease in a big way. A few things that may take getting used to: 1. Light switches - you have to learn to leave them on for total automation. This is still a work in progress in my house. 2. Depending on the strength of your wifi, connection issues can happen. I have 30 Mbps broadband and have experienced only one connection issue on my home network with one bedroom bulb, one time. I plan to get a wifi range extender to ensure complete coverage. 3. The Hue App - it works for its intended purpose but I feel it can be made even better and more intuitive in the future. I'm sure updates will happen as the Hue Community grows and like I said, it works for its current intended purpose. I fully recommend these bulbs and the Philips Hue system. It's cool, it's energy efficient, it's easy. Get some.

    Simple 5000K capable WHITE bulbs

    I'm a newly huge fan of the HUE system. I have a decent integration and quite a few bulbs, lights and Accessories (dimmer switch & motion detection) and I use IFTTT, Alexa and Google Assistant. These lights offer a nice color range -- from traditional "Soft White" (2700K) to a Daylight / blueish color (5000K). Setup was a snap with the Hue App - I added a 'new room', then I powered up one light at a time, (so I know which one I'm working with, as to not name them incorrectly), added them to the App and assign them to the newly created room. Once that was done, I just opened Alexa and scanned for Smart Home devices - and Unlinked / Linked Google to Hue (and reassigned EVERY bulb again) and that was it. Here's some Alexa Gold -- if you've ever have to re-configure your Alexa / Hue configuration, you'd have noticed that Alexa won't 'forget' the old stuff, like Google Home does. To fix that, go here: alexa.amazon.com and select Smart Home, Devices & Forget All. Then, a rescan will get everything clean from Hue. Like Google Home, without IFTTT, you aren't able to change these to a Scene -- say "Nightlight" as you'd see in the Hue App. You need to create a custom Applet in IFTTT with a trigger word like - "Nightlight Bathroom 4" - where it'd interact with IFTTT and HUE and subsequently change the scene to Nightlight in Bathroom 4. Or, if you muck with it too much & just want it back to the Hue scene "Bright" -- yep, another IFTTT Applet & off you go ... or use the App. Overall, if you want to use the App and that's it - perfect. If you want to use the 1984-style telescreen-esque devices like Alexa and/or Google Home, you have to change your ways a bit, or just go back to the App. Either way, 5 Stars here!

    I bought the Philips Hue along with a wemo smart outlet to explore the options for security lighting. After setting up Hue and playing with it for a few days, I returned the wemo. I bought the starter kit with 2 dimable white lights for the bedroom and the white ambient lights for the living room and study. Setup with the Hue app on iOS was easy. Then I set up the Alexa skill. Alexa was a little more complicated because I was already using a Honeywell thermostat in the living room and there were a few ambiguities. Also, although Alexa imported the scenes from the Hue app, it did not enable them. One I enabled them, they work well. “Alexa, turn on tropical twilight in the living room” sets a low level of “warm” light which is perfect for watching TV. One pleasant surprise was then even the basic white dimable can be controlled by scenes. “Alexa, turn on nightlight in the bedroom” turns on the dimmest light. New scenes can be created with the Hue app and eventually become available to Alexa. I was able to connect the Hue to Apple’s HomeKit but since I do not own a HomePod, I do not use it that much. Summary: not the cheapest way to automate home lighting, but for about $100 for starter kit and two additional ambient white lights, a great way to start.

    These lights are a great addition to my home. I am really looking forward to getting more lights, sensors, and wireless switches to outfit my whole home with LED technology. I really hate replacing light bulbs, especially when they are supposed to last a few years and after a year they are dead. First off, they come with a nice 3 year warranty on parts and labor, but they are rated for 25,000 hours of use. For me that should be at least 10 years....maybe more. I purchased the bridge to go with these and that allows me to control them with my Alexa, google home, and Phone via the Hue App. I also purchased a wireless switch and put in on the wall in my kitchen where I really wanted my light switch to be at. For some reason the builder put the switch in the middle of the kitchen, which you usually want the switch to be near the entrance of the room. Well, the wireless switch solved that problem. The different modes the lights can produce are excellent. They are: Relax, Read, Concentrate, and Energize. They are yellowish to super white. You can also customize the shade of white to your liking as well. The initial set up with the app was pretty easy, but the updates that the lights needed out of the box did take a few hours. The app does tell you that so just be patient and let it do its thing. I can't wait to get more of these lights for my whole house.

    Managed to get these on sale but my entire house is set up with all Philips HUE light bulbs. Some of them are these White Ambiance which allow you to get that ultra white adjustment with the app. The rest of the house has the basic HUE lights and then in other parts I have the LED strips as well the color lights in some locations and outside just to mess with the neighbors. As long as you have the Philips Hub you're set and setting up and adding new bulbs literally takes a couple minutes. The App takes a slight learning curve but once you're locked in and logged in you can control them from anywhere and do not even need to be home to adjust the lights as well. Also ? the Timers is nice when it get's dark outside and a nice security option to change the lights around to auto turn off and on. Pricey ? Yes these all can be but I haven't had one bulb go out on me. Some of mine are about 3 years old if not older. So that covers the durability side of these as well. Enjoy these are worth the money hands down.

    If you are one of those people that is finicky about the color temp of your lighting - this is the bulb for you. Don't want to spend $50 on a bulb with 16 million colors, but want to be able to have anything from blue white to warm white and dimmable - get this bulb. I mostly like a warm soft light, which the basic white bulb (also dimmable) gives you - but there are those spots that you want a white, blue/white outdoors color temp. The best thing though is the ability to have both in the same lamp with this bulb. Think of bedroom light where you may want a good reading light that also is warm so you can get ready to sleep, that changes to a relaxing warm dim light to help your body go into sleep mode or doesn't jar you if you need to turn it on in the middle of the night and then in the morning can be a bright energizing light to help you awaken and get on with the day. This is the light bulb to do that. It is so easy to hook up and use. After installing the Hue Hub and the app on your phone or computer - you just screw this bulb in, turn it on and it appears in the app as available. Give it a name, assign it a room and you are done. If you have a Google Home or Amazon Alexia you can have more fun, and just use voice commands to turn it on and off and dim or brighten. Price point is around $30 which is +15 to the basic white, but -20 from the full color bulbs.

    I have a Philips Hue Bridge set up near the center of my one bedroom condo’s floorplan. Setup was fairly fast and intuitive using a Google Home Mini. Not so using an Amazon Alexa Bluetooth speaker @ someone else’s two story 2,500 SF house. Had to figure out extra steps and use Skills. Probably should have tried to find a video to aid me. Just so U know I bought a Starter Philips Hue kit from a local Best Buy. They sent me email to help me. Really like this follow up feature. Too bad I had already completed setups before getting the email. Love the convenience of being able to control the Philips Hue A19 white smart light bulbs using a Ultimate Ears - BLAST Smart Portable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Speaker with Amazon Alexa Voice Assistant. And I was able to add another person to Alexa for voice controls. Also used the Hue Smart Motion Sensor in my bedroom, over my computer nook and in the outdoor light fixture near my front door. Have the Philips Hue and Alexa apps installed on my Nexus 6 phone, for remote control of the bulbs when I’m not at home. Best home investment I’ve made this year. Recommend it highly for anyone interested in controlling their home lighting better.

    I have five of these bulbs installed in my home now, and generally like the idea, but they are a bit expensive. The only problem I have is that the hub keeps setting them to 50% brightness and a yellow color which I have never set them to and it gets frustrating! I also have a Google Home so I have to tell t to turn the brightness up and set the color. I have checked into the problem and found that it is isolated to the hub, not Google. Others have found the same problems also, so I hope an update will take care of the problem. It is kind of nice to be able to tell the lights to come on and turn off with my voice! I will be looking into some of the other sockets and bulbs to see what can be added to the system now that it is up and running. Overall, very happy with the fact that it always works, just a bit disappointed that I have to mess with it most of the time. I have IFTTT, so I may play with setting a program to set them to full power and bright colors each time.

    It's important to note that the bulbs require an additional purchase of the Philips HUE hub if you don't already have one. The hub is easy to set up using a smart phone. Once set up, the bulbs are very nice. I especially like that they have a dimmer function in the application, so the bulbs can serve as bright light source or a night light if you want a soft glow. The application also allows for the system to follow your schedule. I have it set to turn off the lights when I leave the home and turn on when I return. The return is set to only come on after dark. The features are very smart. I'd like to see if these will work outside. I live in a very cold part of the world, so I will need to see how they withstand the extreme temperatures. The bulbs are round and would also look nice in a vanity. I have become a fan of home components that I can control remotely and this is a great addition.

    I’ve been a HUE user for a while, so I’m already equipped with a hub and multiple lights in and around my home. These white ambience lights are a big step up from the 1st generation bulbs I replaced, however. They really shine (pun intended, of course) when used as part of an automation routine. I have these set to slowly come on in my bedroom each early a.m. with a cool hue to aid in a more natural waking routine- and come evening do a fade out with a very warm color temperature to mimic sunset and help transition to bedtime. These have a wide color temp range, and more importantly, have a much smoother transition from off to dim to bright (and vice versa) than the previous bulbs. I know these bulbs, and this system, is not the cheapest option, but it is an area where you clearly get what you pay for. I know I can see the difference! (Ok sorry, I couldn’t resist one more).

    I already had color lights and a light strip, but hadn’t seen a need for the white ambience lights. However I had a couple of floor lamps that really didn’t need color. These bulbs were perfect. Like all hues lights, setup was simple, quick and easy. Literally took less than a minute to get each bulb online. I have the bulbs on routines for mood lighting each evening. However what I really love is that these floor lamps are on switched outlets. Therefore, anytime I can turn the wall switch off and on and the lights come on at full brightness without even grabbing my phone. If I leave the wall switch on, the lights still cycle through their scheduled routines. While no color, the bulbs still have a wide range of shades, mulch more than just a regular dimming bulb. I would highly recommend these for anywhere that you don’t need color, but capsule utilize smart bulbs.

    I love my Hue bulbs. I have several different types, and this White Ambiance set just adds to the collection. OK - I'm a lighting guy - and I really like to be able to create different light scenes and moods for my home. I'm impressed with the level of dimming capable with these bulbs - even better that the standard dimmable LED bulbs I purchased from home improvement stores. No flicker, quick response - perfect for getting the room warmth just right. These bulbs are not color, but have a 2200 (a very warm white) to 6500K (an energetic blue hue). Works great where you don't need a color bulb!

    I have previously bought a Phillips Hue starter kit that has the Hue bridge and 2 of the A19 white LED lamps, I also bought anther 2 white A19 thinking that its the same as white ambience. I loved the functions of the bridge especially that I was able to link it easily to both Google assistant, and an Alexa enabled device and I was able to setup schedules and control them (no one at my home cares to turn the lights off when they leave a room). but the regular Hue A19 was just a yellow LED light, so I bought the A19 Ambience because i prefer the blueish- white to the yellow one. the Ambience has many pre-set scenes for white color degree or warmness, and you can also create your own white warmness degree. I now have 3 rooms in my house completely powered by Hue, and I plan on adding more and switching the whole house to Hue.

    After working for months, the home hub was no longer able to reach any of the bulbs. With no troubleshooting options in the app, I had to factory reset the hub in hopes of correcting the situation. The hub then refused to locate *any* of my lightbulbs, forcing me to get each bulb out of their sockets throughout the house, one at a time, to get the serial number and manually type it in. That was no guarantee the hub would find the light bulb. As I write this review I have multiple bulbs that I can no longer control. Philips Hue is supposed to be the premiere smart light solution. This is absolutely not my experience and will not look to them for future smart home improvements.

    Bought this to pair up with my Amazon Alexa and they work beautifully right out of the box. Simply screw them in and press the sync button on the phillips hub and they are good to go! In hind sight, it probably would have been cheaper to purchase a smart wall switch that could do essentially the same job as the 4 lights I purchased, but the different shades of yellow-white light still make these a superior choice, I think. Not to mention it keeps all my various lights controlled by one app on my phone. Specifically this was excellent because we like to use our patio as an entrance to our home, and the main light switch is no where near the door. Paired with the Alexa, all we have to say is "Alexa, lights on!" and poof, we have light! Great investment, and at only $15 a bulb, you can't really go wrong. Just make sure you have a the hub first!

    This white Hue bulb gives a range of white color temperatures from amber to white to bluish light so it has a bit more options than the standard soft light light bulbs but half the price of the full color models. They integrate with the Philips Hue bridge which i got with another package. My only issue is that the intensity of the light is not as strong as i would like it to be. I actually had to buy this extra bulb to add more light in my living room because the other two Philips hue bulbs just weren't giving off enough light for our taste. The only other option if you like your lights strong and bright is another brand called LifX but those are more expensive and i'm not sure if they function as seamlessly as the Philips do with their bridge
