    I bought these on sale a little over a year ago wanting something to replace the old 3 way incandescent bulbs in a couple of rooms in my house that would last longer and work via my phone vs the old plug into the wall timers. I was on the fence about white vs colored but went for the colored as the cost difference with the sale was minimal. I don't think I have used the colored option other then to play around with them every once and a while. Unless you have multiple lights in a room and have them connected to your TV or music to change colors with the entertainment, the color feature is pretty useless for just two standard table lamps. Speaking of connecting to entertainment, good luck! It seems to require a rabbit hole of 3rd party apps to set anything up. The color hue of the white is insanely hard to find a middle ground of natural light with at any sort of brightness that is useful at nighttime. My old 3 way bulbs would more then light up my entire living room. I have to put these on the very blue "concentrate" setting to be able to see anything of detail and even then it's debatable with my creeping toward 40 year old eyes that don't require glasses or contacts to see. And while I thought controlling the lights via my app was great before I got them, I failed to realize this means you need to carry your phone with you everywhere in the house to turn lights on (unless you have Alexa in every room to do this by voice command). If you walk upstairs to grab something quickly and leave your phone downstairs, you will be doing so in the dark unless you remember to turn them on before heading up. Same goes for middle of the night emergencies. You need to fumble with unlocking your phone, finding the app, hitting the on button and waiting for the lights to slowly respond. The only good thing they have going is the ability to set up various routines such as fade from off to on in the morning or fade from on to off at night or the ability to set them on timers in various rooms so you don't come home to a dark house or it looks like you are home when you are away on vacation. I could have easily solved this with the cheaper white bulbs though!

    Phillips Hue Color kit/lights (I bought 2 kits on sale, and four additional lights) are fun, interesting, and useful. I now have a complete smart home! The set-up of the lights was no too difficult, except some of my bulbs had to be set-up manually (not difficult.) The app that controls them from Hue was limited. I ended up spending about 20 dollars more on approved apps I downloaded so I could use them to create a home theatre, use them to coordinate with music, and get better animated effects. Hue should have all of these in the app they supply, Using the additional apps for home theatre is what made me buy all the bulbs I did. I operate the lights from my cell phone app, Amazon Alexa, and I did buy a hue wall switch/dimmer/remote for those lights that made sense.. I set it up so my bedroom light gradually turns on to wake me up with sunrise colored lights. I like that the lights can be programed to come on when anyone in my family gets close to the house, With the app I added the dining room candles that play an animated program that makes them look like candles/fire. I had to remove the frequently used lights from the kitchen because my wife kept switching the old light switch off. She is light sensitive and the lights start flashing like a strobe when you do that. I did add the available light switch to the theatre lights to prevent that. The light switch that hue sells was not the same size as standard lights. The wall switch/remote dimmer switch was easy to install, but taking out the existing light three way wires, was more of a project then I wanted it to be. Hue should have more guidance and adaptive cover to make this easier. I have been using the kit for two weeks, and we have gotten used to turning them on and off from apps/Alexa. It took me some time to figure out how to best use them. I have one light that is in my dining room group, but somehow changes when I use my theatre lights? My wife was not happy about the lights at first. But I assured her that I was learning how to use them, and over time she enjoying many of the ways they add to your life. I have added other Smart home items now. There are real benefits to having these, and I am glad I bought them. When companies charge you to create a smart home they set up the same thing, for far more money. The bulbs are expensive, but last for two years.

    I have this set in use at my home and it has been reliable enough that I bought it as a gift for a friend. We both use it linked to our computers, controlled through Razer's Synapse software. Games like Doom, Deep Rock Galactic, Star Trek Online, etc. have Hue sync support to add to the ambience of your gaming. I use my system coupled with several Hue Taps and a motion sensor. The system works reliably most of the time (but when it messes up, be prepared to reset the hub). I haven't been able to explain why it has stopped responding correctly in the past but, fortunately, those occasions have been few. Philips is still developing features to add to the system (more granular control of the lighting, intelligent actions, etc.) It's to the point now where it's configurable as I desire, though I hope they'll add more options for the motion sensor behavior. We use a combination of the mobile app, the Taps, and timer/time-of-day-based control. For instance, turn off the common area lights after a certain late hour, don't activate the lights when motion is detected before a certain time, etc. The color reproduction is good in the latest generation of bulbs (the first ones I bought years ago had trouble with greens). There are "Hue Labs" options that users have developed and submitted that offer functionality not contained within the stock Hue app - I've used a couple with success and hopefully Philips will use these as an ideas to integrate into the app. You may have to upgrade the devices' firmware out of the box, but the procedure is straightforward and doesn't take that much time (unless you've bought a lot of bulbs). There also exist options to tie in the Hue system to others (for instance, have a Logitech Harmony remote manipulate the lights based on your activity [dim the lights when you activate "Watch a movie," etc.]) Alexa has been able to control ours well thus far and it required minimal setup. It's a bit of an expensive ecosystem to buy into, but with the dearth of well-integrated systems available, it's a decent buy if you are prepared to spend the money to achieve the lighting and control you want.

    I tried this out after sitting on the fence for a while. Though I was fortunate to snag it up at a reduced price, my home was not ready for this just yet. I initially wanted to go the full Monty and change most of the everyday lights but I realized it would be a challenge keeping all the light fixture switches "on". These bulbs discard the color settings when the wall switch is turned off (or power cut to them). This implies that I would have required some mechanism to prevent other family members using the wall switches after the install (remember, once the switch is set off you cannot see the bulb on the app). Should your home automation be at the point where an Alexa, for example, is being used for room illumination I would assume this hurdle would have already been overcome. There are several workarounds to this (with some cost and some visual displeasure) if you really want to make it work. The setup was a breeze (connect the switch to router, download app and add bulbs). I didn't find the default app intuitive (too many steps for a desired result) but I believe there are some third party apps some online reviews swore by. I played with a few color schemes and experienced a few lags on some occasions. Resetting the switch is also easy. Eventually, when these become mainstream and cheaper, I have no doubt they will catch on especially when houses get built with them in mind. For now, retrofitting in my opinion, is an uphill battle I wasn't ready for at the current price point and functionality.

    Great Starter and Easy Automation Lighting Kit

    Before purchasing this item, I had bought the google home and thought I would like to home automate other parts of my home. The guys were great with showing me several products and I had finally chose the Phillips Hue "starter" kit. It came with a hub and 4 smart lights. The setup was easy and integrated with the google home within minutes ( I do not know about Alexa or Apple integration). The instructions for setup were a little lackluster but did not impair the setup to prevent it from being effective and quick. It was as simple as downloading the Hue app, removing the old light bulbs, putting the Hue bulbs in and clicking on the hub. Having it connect through google home appeared seamless and easy. The longest part for me was deciding what to name each light. The one challenge I did have was creating “voice shortcuts” in google home to work with the Hue system but that is not Phillip’s Hue fault. I would have like to see a little more instruction/detail of what types of color names that the hue system bulbs could be set at so I would not have to research all the varieties of color. However, that was not enough to change my rating from an excellent product and I would buy it again.

    Excited and Disappointed

    I was in need of some replacement bulbs, and I figured I would get the best most flexible option available - Philips Hue to replace the blown bulb versus a standard LED or UFL option. I was also excited about the possibilities especially with the approaching Halloween holiday. My intention was to have lighting to reflect the decorations and change colors automatically during parties. While the bulbs are cool with the color options that you can choose with the movement of your finger or verbal command with a personal assistant. I found out that the lights do not change automatically to simulate disco or strobe lighting in a club. The Philips app has an entertainment option which is suppose to match the sound in the room, but I found out that it does not work unless the television is connected to a PC or you need to acquire a separate smart device app, hence my disappointment. Maybe Philip Hue labs will develop some better options. Another thing is I found out that the bulbs do not simulate black (i.e. black light) which is a duh on my part because black is the absence of light. The bulbs can be changed to purple, which is the closest to the black light effect; it just would not cause whites and bright colors to glow like a traditional black light. As a last notation, to have the lights flash to sounds like thunder, I hooked up the lamp to a lightening fx device; but, what the device ultimately does is turn the lamp off and on based on the sound. Every time the light bulb goes off, it reverts back to white (the default color), so I loose the purple setting every time. For now, I will still recommend for the potential options that may come, but I unfortunately I had high expectations.

    Great product, tech issues connecting to Google

    I would have rated the product 5 stars but my only issue doing that is Google. The product was purchased for the benefit of working with my Google home. But when I tried to connect and the connection kept failing and I called Philips for help. Philips' tech support was great, they were very patient and knowledgeable with trying to troubleshoot the issue with the failed connection. But in the end it was determined to be a well known problem on Google's end and Philips was unfortunately unable to resolve the issue. I eventually found on Google's end a work around to finally get my Hue bridge to work with Google Home after hours of troubleshooting. It was frustrating to say the least for a person like me who's pretty tech savvy. Just be aware that it's highly possible you may run into the same issues and that Google since last year knows it's an issue and they are still working on it. If you do run into same issues try this: you will need to unlink and re-link the Philips Hue service: Open your Google Home app and tap the “+” Add button in the Home page. Tap “Set up device” then “Have something already set up”. Tap on Philips Hue / Unlink and repeat the steps from above.

    I like the Phillips Hue Products and I had already installed about 10 Phillips Hue lights in my home using the first Gen Starter Pack & Hub. and had been wanting more lights for a long time but as everyone knows, the bulbs are pricey. When I saw the deal I decided to purchase the starter pack because Best Buy offered the two Amazon Echo speakers. For some reason, the new lights were never recognizable on my hub! I thought I would literally be able to screw them in and discover them in the app as I had done without fail before. After two hours of trying different things, I was prompted to install the new app, connect the new hub and sync my devices. I did that and was beside myself angry when the app essentially deleted all my saved "scenes" and was forcing me to use the newer version of the Hue App that I like A LOT LESS! And, to add further frustration, the lights could still not be found until I manually typed in each serial number!!! Now I have to use both apps to achieve the desired result that I was looking for because the first app doesn't even recognize my Phillips Hue motion sensor and the second App doesn't allow me to create and customize scenes nearly as well as the old version. Why do updates ALWAYS make things worse!! If it works well the first time, don't change it. Consistency is a beautiful thing sometimes. Figure it out. As for the Amazon echo dots, they were ultimately given to friends as birthday gifts.

    I have been using Hue for the past 2 or so years now. This system is one of the best purchases I've made in my entire life. They may be a bit pricey ($200 for the starter kit, $50 per additional bulb, $80 for the strip, more accessories, more accessories, etc.) but they're worth every penny. I justify the prices with the amount of use I get out of these.. they do light my home after all. With 16m colors which last you 25k hours, you'll definitely get your moneys worth. The initial setup should take you no more that 10 min and every accessory you add on should be less than 1 minute. Everyone I've ever gotten this for or recommended it to has not only adapted to using the system but have added on to it. My 60 year old father and 62 year old step mother love changing the lights with Siri. He ended up spending an additional $700 to fit his entire condo with Hue after I got him the starter kit for Christmas last year. The system easily pairs with Apple's HomeKit/Siri (I use it on my iPhone and iPad), my GoogleHome and my friends, who I recommended Hue to, Amazon Alexa. Its awesome to walk into a dark room and say "hey google, lights orange" and have that happen. Its also nice to have left the house, remember that you left lights on and be able to say "hey Siri, lights off" and you're not wasting electricity or burning out your $50 bulb. I can literally go on for hours on how impressed I am with these products. Ask questions

    Completely useless away from home

    Posted
    Panther

    I mainly bought these because I was going to be out of town for a couple of weeks and wanted to setup some timers to make it look like someone was home. Ended up buying more lights and spent hours doing all these fancy programs. While waiting at the airport, I remembered I need to turn on those programs. They published an update for the bridge that same day. I did try to update it, but apparently you have to be at home on your WiFi to be able to do the update. Because I didn't do the update, it basically locks you out of the app. You can still manually turn on and off the lights, but nothing else is accessible. So after spending hundreds of dollars and several hours messing with these, they were completely useless for the main purpose they were installed to do. I will never buy one of their products again. I even spoke to their customer support and they couldn't do anything to correct the situation. If you plan to only operate these inside of your house, maybe these will work for you. Even then, if there happens to be an update when you go to use them and you are on limited time, you'll either have to update or be locked out. I personally don't like being locked out of something I've spent so much money on. After returning from my trip, I've researched some other brands and found there are actually better, less expensive, and less complex options. Kind of sucks I'm stuck with these for now because I can't justify throwing them in the trash. But any future additions to my home will be anything but this brand.

    Awesome Lights but a Little Tricky

    We have nearly 20 of these bulbs in our house all connected to one bridge. (You can connect 50 bulbs to one bridge before you need another one) These bulbs turn any lamp into a dimmable explosion of color and light anywhere you choose to put one. When combined with smart technology and optional switchplates, you have a truly one-of-a-kind, super-versatile lighting system. Issues arise when you have multiple bulbs connected to one smart home system and you need to turn one light blue and another green or whatever. You have to group them into rooms and into individual bulbs from there and name each light something verbally distinct from the others. With a little practice, the Hue app will help you do just about anything you could want from your lights. But, in the event youre not COMPLETELY satisfied, there are a host of third party apps you can download that will help you do anything else; sync to what your computer or TV has on the screen, sync to music playing on your phone or wifi driven speaker system, fluctuate from color to color like being under the sea, etc. We love these bulbs so much that we’re willing to pay the REALLY high price per bulb just for the abilities they grant us.

    I'll admit that I'm late to the game when it comes to smart home lighting and now I'm wondering why I kept putting it off! I grabbed these about a month ago on sale for $30 off, came home, briefly read the instructions, setup the hub, swapped out four light bulbs, and tied everything to Siri. The setup process was pretty smooth and not at all hard to setup. I've got the Hue app installed on both my iPhone and iPad along with using Home Kit with my AppleTV. I've not created a Hue account but if I need to access the lighting controls remotely then Home Kit takes care of that for me without having to create yet another account for yet another service. My use scenario is two Hue lights setup to a lamp in the living room and the other two lights set up in a couple of lamps in my bedroom. Using voice commands to turn on all the lights in my apartment is quite groovy and handy. Being able to change the light settings for various moods or effects is easy enough to accomplish with either Home Kit or the Hue app. I am planning to add a few more lights both white and colors over the rest of the summer and I'm debating a light strip. The setup process was a lot easier than I was expecting and the lights actually get pretty darn bright. There really isn't any downside to going with the lights.

    I have been considering some form of 'smart' lighting for a while. Phillips Hue is the top tier, but I spent time investigating cheaper alternatives before deciding to take the plunge - all in with the Hue. It has been well worth it! It took a bit to figure out the bulb naming schemes, but once I had the Bridge installed and the bulbs named, connection with my Google Home was a breeze, and now the lights are integrated with my daily routines. Wowing friends with fun colors is always a plus. Middle of the night bathroom visits no longer involve getting blinded. I wake up more naturally with the "sunrise" routine - versus a jarring alarm. I've barely scratched the surface as to all the things these lights can do, and am looking forward to seeing what else they have in store. I am sold, and I highly recommend them!

    I got these lights because i thought it'd be fun in my daughters room to create some fun play ambiance and to help dim lights during night time. The setup was easy overall but make sure that you do plug the bridge into the router itself, not a satellite (like on a mesh wifi system) or a switch/hub. I had issues with some of the lights not being recognized until I switched the bridge from my Orbi satellite to into the router itself. Once I did that everything has been flawless. I have been able to use Apple HomeKit and can tell Siri to turn lights off but haven't played around with scenes or anything yet. It's been fun to have my daughter try to tell Siri to turn the lights blue or turn them on. They've been fun to play with in her room but even better to use during bed time to start dimming the lights and wind her down during story time or even have one light on as a night light. I can see why people say these are addictive!

    BEWARE NO WI-FI - REQUIRES ETHERNET AND POWER CORD

    First of all, I love these. they are great. I also own Wemo lights, switches, Insignia Switches, TP Link lightbulbs, Amazon Alexa Spot and Dot, and many other voice-activated devices and hubs. All of them use Wifi to setup and connect. So I figured I would get the mac-daddy of all smart light-bulbs, the Phillips Hue colors. Little did I know, the Hue Bridge not only requires a power brick, and cord, to power the device, it also comes with an ethernet cable which MUST stay plugged into your router at all times so the Hue Bridge has to be located near your router. This is a real shame, and almost deal breaker. Absolutely ridiculous that here in 2018 this thing doesn't have wifi. Even the cheapest $10 to $30 smart bulbs without any Hub/Bridge at all, all use wifi for setup and operation. Was absolutely miffed by this, and can't believe it wasnt more prominently displayed and explained in the product details page. Besides that - everything else is great. Can choose or create just about ANY color. The links with other entertainment products is cool too where itll change colors based on video games or movies being played. All this, and yet a dimosaur of a decision was made to hamper the product and leave it WAY behind all the competitors. So odd.

    It’s pretty rad to walk into your theater room and say “Hey Siri, turn the Animus on” and then let there be light! Animus is the name I gave my theater room so the voice commands are pretty neat and the name of your lights are customizable. I was concerned that if I wasn’t home someone may have trouble figuring out the lights. That concern was put to rest when I flipped the light switch off and back on the lights default to a really nice white. This is a really fun toy to have I throughly enjoy it. I’m a big gamer and movie watcher so I can theme the color of my entire room to match my entertainment. Pictures absolutely cannot do this justice. Just FYI in the pic the TV lights are hue but aren’t in this kit but to save time if your tv is 75 inches like mine this took one hue strip and 3 extensions to get the complete wrap around. Love Hue and am very happy with all of my hue purchases.

    Great Smart Lights to Start Out With

    I originally bought these lights when they came out (Gen1) and returned them. Bought a few other brands in between them Lifx, Geenie, TP_Link, Wallyworld and a few $12 color smart lights. The whites were "ok" but colors were dismal. Lifx was best at 1100 lumens but at $60 per bulb I only bought one and that was it. Philips Hue lured me back in from friends and ratings. Hub - no worries. Plug it in and you are set to go. They respond quickly and are accurate. Even bought a 4 bulb set with a free Amazon Echo from Best Buy as a house warming gift for a friend. Included a few stand up lamp fixtures for their living room too. They LOVE IT! Colors make the difference. Being able to talk to them is more than convienient. Now, I am slowly building up my color Hue army - one bulb every two weeks until I have the house all Hue. The others are going to a garage sale soon. Love the Hue experience even though they are a little more expensive in some ways. Buy them used and the price comes down. Recommend the Philips Hue system from Best Buy to start your way to painting with light.

    At first, I just wanted lights to fade on with my morning alarm. I've not had to frighten or annoy myself awake since Then, I added Alexa. Crawl into bed, and "Alexa, turn off the lights." Sweet. Once you realize exactly how much these lights can change your room, you'll start creating scenes and timers. I don't reach for the wall switches anymore as I enter or leave a room. I leave the house, my lights turn off. I get home, and one turns on. I have routines setup to change my scenes throughout the day, so I transition from "Dawn" to "Foggy Morning" to "Sunny Day" to "Early Afternoon" then "Sunset" then "Twilight" and finally "City Glow". If I want to change the mood or brighten or dim, just ask Alexa to do it! Want a party? "Alexa, turn on Colorloop". And I can add motion sensors to have one or two lights turn on at night on a trip to the fridge. Then you start realizing that adding a few smart outlets or sensors will let you use voice commands with Alexa to turn fans on/off, or control your TV and stereo, and even the thermostat. Do you want to know where to start if you're curious about this whole Smart Home thing? Start here.

    I purchased these lights to replace a set of daylight LEDS in a 5 bulb ceiling fixture. I was not impressed by the brightness of the Hue lights. Did not put out as much light as stated and that's times 5 bulbs (purchased an extra to go with the starter kit). Colors were good, but not as vivid as one would expect. Set up with the hub was rather easy. I was able work through any setup issues rather quickly. In the end, I replaced all 5 with the Lifx. The Lifx were a pain to setup, but once set up the brightness was great with more vivid colors! At the price point for the Hues, I expected brighter light output and more vivid colors. I will reuse the Hues where I don't need as much brightness. Purchased as part of Google Home bundle so did not return, otherwise I would have returned. Not impressed as much as I thought that I would have been. Pros - Setup was easy, costs less than Lifx color bulbs. Good for small spaces. Hub concept works best as long as you have a free Ethernet port on your router. Cons - Not very bright and not as bright as stated 800 Lumens. Not good for larger rooms. Cost per bulb is rather high for what you get.

    1. The required bridge seems like overkill and the sooner they connect to Google and Amazon directly, the better 2. If you're using Echo or Google home you'll have redundant apps with differing and inconsistent functionality from the Hue app 3. You'll spend an hour or two upgrading the firmware on individual bulbs which is silly and annoying... 4. One of my bulbs gets out of sync with the others from time to time and will occasionally be the odd one out in a color scheme 5. Like some other "dimmable" led bulbs they might be incompatible with some older dimmer switches. That's the bad stuff but I got a reasonable discount and they really can change the appearance of a room as well as the benefits of voice activation and remote control. Here's a simple "warm" setting in the kitchen. The Hues are in the lightshades.
