    The Love of My Life

    I LOVE THESE LIGHTS SO MUCH! I keep buying more. And I always post them on my Snapchat and people always ask, “O M G. What are those? Where’d ya get em? How much?” I’m pretty sure Phillips should just make me a product sponsor at this point. I have pretty much convinced at least 10 people to purchase these kind of expensive but extremely satisfying lights. I even had a demonstration of how you can Google a random list of colors and just ask Siri to “turn lights to Bittersweet”. It’s fantastic! They even have apps for automation like IFTTT. I can’t get enough. These Phillips Hue lights changed the Feng shui of my entire space.

    I have about 8 hue lights now around my home... So easy to automate and turn on... change colors, etc... integrates easily with apple Homekit. Great for when I'm away for turning on in different rooms to give the appearance someone is home. A little expensive to start.. But in my opinion so worth it. I purchased my first starter kit when they were first introduced. All bulbs are still working perfectly. The new version of the bulbs have a much better green than the original... so they just keep improving.

    I have the 3rd generation starter kit and couldn't be happier. The colors are deep and rich and fun to play with. It can become an addiction. I was originally thinking about getting a bloom for behind my tv but I realized the blooms have less lumens. Since my tv is caddy cornered I was able to use an old lamp with a hues bulb and hid it behind my tv. It looks great and can dim it as little and as much as I want. I have my Christmas tree up in my living room and have been lighting the room up with red and green enhancing my Xmas experience. Fun all around and you don't realize you need them until you got them.

    We are big fans of the Phillips Hue Lights. It's good to have them available at BestBuy and they occasionally go on sale. The lights work great with Apple Homekit (iPhone) and work good with Alexa -- sometimes they just don't listen to her. As for this generation, it's bluer and greener than last gens. They are not super bright - so mainly use them for accenting your rooms. We programmed ours to indicate us when there is bad storms outside using IFFTT - no need to check outside, just see the blue Hue lights. As for cons, they are expensive... but they do last forever. So it's an investment.

    The Phillips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 is a great start to the Phillips Hue collection. It fits most lighting fixtures, and can be customized with the Phillips Hue App. As an casual gamer, movie connoisseur, and weekly party host I absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants to create an atmosphere and mood for yourself. It's alarming how expensive Phillips hue products are compared to other smart lights but it is well worth it as far as quality and enjoyment.

    To be honest the concept is great but my problem is with the apps associated with it. Philips Hue app is okay but the bulbs go unreachable and have to be reset often. When using with Alexa app the problems are even worse. First of all she can’t change the color. She can only dim and even that is unreliable. She can’t find it or it’s not responding. I even have one of the lights that has to be deleted over and over because she’s detecting more than one but yet I delete the extra and it keeps coming back. My husband is fed up he wants to get rid of them he said it’s easier to just use the switch lol

    Mostly works great

    So the bulb itself seems fine, works great. The Hue app also seems to mostly work fine. However, sometimes it ignores commands, but works again the second time. This also happens when using the HomeKit Apple app. Changed channels it operates on, upgraded firmware and still, sometimes it ignores the first request to adjust/turn on/turn off. Certainly not a deal breaker but, can be annoying. Probably more an Apple issue than Philips. That being said, very cool being able to use Siri or an app to control lights. Can also do some very awesome colors. Oh and not having to get up off the couch is pretty priceless.

    While they are somewhat expensive, the hue colored bulbs are definitely the best of their kind. They often run different sales and promos that make them easier to afford so I would advise checking regularly. I bought the starter kit and lightstrip for just my bedroom when I first moved and now every bulb in my house is a Phillips smart bulb. Most of them are the colored ones except a few like the garage and laundry room. They really make ur place look awesome with all the different schemes and settings and with the updated app, the functionality is much improved.

    These lights are awesome, especially when entertaining guests. The look on their face when they see you adjust your home lighting at the ease from your phone is great, plus you can connect to a Google Home / Alexa and turn off/on your lights while in bed. I've purchased four of these and while one went bad within a couple weeks (Phillips recommends not using the light switch to turn off/on the lights, I forgot, and after I did that a few times one bulb started flashing). Fortunately, Phillips customer service was awesome and got it replaced within a couple weeks. Definitely recommend.

    My first purchase were the 2nd generation lights. I just couldn't justify spending $50 for a light bulb. Brought them home and fell in love. The difference in color is a big difference in how deep and rich blue and greens are I tell you you're going to kick yourself for not buying these first. The color difference should sway a new buyer in investing in the 3rd generation bulbs because you will want true blue, greens and clear differences between pink and purple when setting up your color scenes. Pricey YES worth it absolutely! I'm addicted and I've almost completed my ambient lighting project with almost 15 lights 5 to go.

    I'm slowly converting my house over to all Hue lighting, and when these were on sale over the Thanksgiving weekend I had to grab a couple. They're set up on either side of my home office desk and I've discovered that using an app like Hue Dynamic - which can generate automated scenes such as a bright day with clouds floating overhead - has been really reduced eye strain. With regular LED bulbs selling for a dollar or two paying $30 to $45 for a single bulb admittedly does sound a little crazy but if you slowly transition you'll wind up not feeling the bite too badly and you'll love it.

    I’m working to convert my home to a smart home, and wanted I use these for lamps in our house. They generally have the best reviews online. I set them both up to work with Homekit and Alexa, and haven’t had any issues. Not sure how much I really need to have the colors, but it’s fun to demonstrate to friends, and my girls have a blast with them. I think the color feature is best used in a room with multiple other hue bulbs, with different but complementary colors.

    Fun bulb, expensive price.

    These bulbs can be fun additions to your home. You will need an existing Philips Hue Hub in order to interface with the bulb. This bulb allows changing of colors as well as white temperatures. The color reproduction is pretty accurate, but it can seem washed out if there is sunlight in the room. You can also use the wakeup feature in the Philips Hue app with more success than the standard bulbs. The obvious con is the $50 price for each individual bulb. While at first I thought having colored light would be awesome. The more I use these bulbs I find that I do not use colored light as frequently as I would expect.

    Great smart lights

    While the initial cost of these lightbulbs are a bit high, these are some amazing lightbulbs to have. They are app controlled so I can control them from my phone, I can make sure all my lights are off as I leave the house and It is a lot of fun to be able to play around with the colors. Completely worth the costs (and I'll probably by the white only ones at some point for places like the bathroom as those are cheaper but offer the same smart function.)

    I bought this for my teen daughter for her bedside lamp and she has been totally in awe of the product. It took slightly longer to setup the bulb as my daughter’s room is furthest to the router (tip: using the serial number helps speed things up) but once it is setup, everything works. We were also able to set up Alexa on the Echo Dot to work with this. I know Philips Hue is generally more pricy than some others in the market but in terms of overall performance and consistency, I think it is well worth the money.

    I absolutely love the Philips Hue lights. I've got one in every fixture throughout my home including the wireless one behind my TV. I've got the lights set on timers so I never have to worry about the lights being on when I'm not home and I even use them in the morning to turn on with my alarm. They make for great ambiance when watching movies, and you can even set them to react to music using third party apps. They're LED so they use less electricity than standard bulbs and even with the cost up front its worth it because they will outlast standard filament bulbs. I will be using these from now on for every light I own.

    We bought this light to add some dim color to our room at night and help with calming down to sleep. The spectrum of colors is great as well as the dimmable options. We were also able to connect this to our Google Home Mini for voice command- which works great! The Hue App itself is not anything awesome, but there are many third party apps available for purchase that take this light to the next level- one app changes the light pulses and colors according to the music playing on spotify, another has light changes that match a soothing rain shower, etc. Would highly recommend!

    So, with it already understood that these smart lights are NOT cheap, I can say that they are REALLY awesome. My living room lamps all have these bulbs and I absolutely love the atmosphere you can give with these! The app is great and I also use the dimmer switch to easily flip them all on. I'm really excited to get them connected to my alexa as well for voice command. SUPER easy to set up with the bridge and the app. Bottom line, if you have the cash and are looking to do some nice smart lighting in your home, I'd totally recommend!

    I recently purchased my first Philips Hue Starter kit and wanted to add one of the color lights into the mix. I am extremely impressed with the Philips Hue multi-color light and i'ts ability to switch back and forth between colors with the ease of voice command or smartphone access. This is a great purchase for backdrop lighting, themed lighting for events, and when it transitions to white it is seamless with my other bulbs. I would highly recommend this purchase and if money isn't an option I would suggest purchasing all hue color lights, due to their dual functions.

    This works great for anyone with hue; it allows you to program 4 scenes to it and place it anywhere on the wall; it is NOT hardwired so you can even place it on the coffee table if you wanted to. Works great when the inlaws come over and cannot figure out how to use our lights because they dont know how to run apps. It is way cool how it takes no batteries and just sticks to the wall. Set up was kind of sketchy, for some reason my app did not recognize it, I had to use the gen 2 app but once I did that everything worked great. It also makes it so my wife can just turn lights on and off instead of using her phone.
