    Lots of possibilities with 3rd party apps.

    I went on a bot of a spending spree around Black Friday this year with all the Hue deals floating around. Best Buy had their fair share of them so I scooped up a 3 bulb starter pack to get the ball rolling. I can honestly say that I am pleasantly surprised with the Hue bulbs. The Hue app itself is pretty limited with the options but 3rd party apps appear to deliver on what these bulbs can do. Get your bulbs setup with the Hue app and home automation platform of choice (alexa or Goggle home) and dig into those 3rd party apps.

    I got these lights to work with my echo. These lights are definitely not a necessity, however being able to dim, turn on and turn off the lights with only your voice is help sometimes. The colored light options are fun and help give you light with out being too bright. However you also have the option to make them as bright as possible with can also be helpful. Over all I enjoy them and would suggest them if you were looking for a smart bulb.

    Got all of the living room lights replaced with 3rd gen hue lights and were happy. Were using these lights and 2nd get lightstrips plus with Echo. Let me tell you its awesome, it takes some time for everyone to stop flipping the light switches out of the habit but man, when everyone is comfortable with them they are a blast. Brighter, more color accurate and the best part, if you forget to turn them off just check your phone and turn them off ha ha. Also The waking up with increasing light intensity is nice, noticed that it actually helped.

    I purchased this bulb as a means of adding ambient light to a home theater viewing room. It's just as easy to use as the white bulbs, with the addition of a color and temperature wheel that lets you dial in the exact color you're looking for. However, it's important to note that it doesn't seem to illuminate a room as well as the white bulbs, so it should only be used for ambiance.

    OK, this is my positive about these light: They can change 1000+ different colors or dim them. You can also turn them On/Off. Negative: They are over priced. 99% of you ceiling fans have 4 to 6 lights at $50 dollars each. You are paying over $200 dollars just to make your leaving room into RED. Is it worth it. My 5 year old thinks so, I DONT Think So...but, Its cool when you have guest or watching a movie and you want to dim the light to Blue

    I saw these in the store and got a guided tour of the system. I started out with 3 bulbs to try them out. I never thought I would see the day when I would spend 49 dollars for a light bulb. Unlimited colors, hues, light intensity all completely controlled from my smart phone, I Pad and Pods. You can even control the system while you are away. Amazing. I am outfitting my entire home with this system . There are also white only bulbs that can be intensity controlled. I won't attempt to get technical. Research yourself and go from there..

    I cant stress enough how awesome these bulbs are. We are the talk of the neighborhood with all of our lights. We have so many different color set ups for different occasion and our house is so light up that you cant not notice. You can set your lights up with many apps and have Alexa or Google control them from your commands. Limitless commands, colors even vibrate and change colors to the beat of your music. You cant go wrong with these.....we have over 50 bulbs and everyone knows us!

    Bought my first few bulbs after Christmas and still haven't stopped messing around with them! This bulb is on my outside door lanterns. With the Philips Hue app you can program routines to turn them on in the morning and off during daylight hours. Lights can also match to any color by taking a photo of the color you want. A little expensive. But, they are LED energy efficient bulbs that are supposed to last a while, so.....

    These bulbs are really fun. My kids love them. My only complaint about them isn't actually with the bulbs themselves - it's that my Echo Dot sometimes has trouble calling up the "Scenes" but I think that's an Alexa weakness, not a hue weakness. These were easy to add to my existing Hue Bridge and white bulbs. I wish they weren't quite so pricey, but considering that they have to pack wireless connectivity and probably some kind of flash memory in there, it's technologically impressive.

    Colored hue bulbs

    Colored hue bulbs -I have these bulbs in my office, bathroom, bedrooms, and living room. I simply love the fact that they’re voice operated and I can change them to suit my mood. Hue has an easy to use app. You can use either Alexa or Siri to voice or manually operate them. I have found Siri works better than Alexa. I’ve only used the colored bulbs. You can make the lights not just different colors but also different degrees of brightness too. My kids think I’m really cool and they’re in college. LOL

    No more boring incandescent bulbs. Make your home space unique with color. Hub is required but the benefits of a Hue bulb over wifi bulb is huge. With hue bulbs there is never downtime for bulbs. Wifi bulbs can intermittently drop connection and require you to reset the bulb. Hue Bulbs are BRIGHT and always reliable. The cost outweighs any doubt for me. Plus HomeKit compatibility is a must for my Apple Ecosystem.

    Very cool, but very expensive

    These lights really are awesome. Where you place them is very important. For example: enclosed fixtures really block out a lot of the light and while you can still do this, they look significantly better in a fixture or lamp that is open. The set up is very simple, the app is easy to use, and syncs with Amazon Echo very easily. The biggest con is...the price. $50 per bulb is pretty outrageous when you realize you're buying light bulbs. But they have excellent colors, brightness, and really influence the ambiance of your home.

    It's amazing how much this has changed my living room. I like to watch a lot of movies and these light bulbs have really changed the way I do that. I'm able to simply open the app and change the color to something warm or muted and turn the brightness down really low which really sets the mood for watching TV or listening to music or anything else that I wanted to be. I could pick any color that I want and any brightness that I want. I will definitely be buying more of these for all of the rooms in my house.

    I can't say enough positive things about the Hue system. I have these fantastic bulbs installed in my home office and around the house. From my phone or smartwatch, I can easily adjust brightness, color, and much more from anywhere in the house. The lights have also proven invaluable as a wake-up system; the lights can either be synced with sleeptracking software, or they can be programmed to turn on at a specific time. Either way, the gradual transition to bright light makes waking up a breeze. Highly recommended.

    This is my first Phillips Hue Color Bulb. I have had several Phillips Hue White Bulbs and haven’t had any problems with them. We bought this color bulb to put in our nursery for our new born that’s on the way. I really enjoy this bulb and how many colors is can project. Works very well and is very responsive when changing colors. I am thinking about buying a few more for the rest of the house. Great Product

    These bulbs make a great addition to your Hue ecosystem. I started off with the 2nd gen bulbs, but bought a few of these 3rd gens when they came out. While many may question the need for getting the updated bulbs, they are a solid purchase. My scenes now "pop" with more color and vibrancy than before. The blues and greens are really amazing, compared to the gen 2 bulbs where they were washed out and dull. I'd definitely recommend upgrading!

    I now have 3 of the color changing bulbs in my Hue family and love them. Pretty sure my daughter learned her colors at a young age because we would spend a lot of time changing the color with Siri. Currently using them on either side of my garage door because at Christmas time it was nice to set them to various colors (ice blue, red, green) and putting them on dusk to dawn is great for security as well.

    When I first set my new Hue light system I loved it... worked great and easy to use, however then it all went down. It started turning on to the brightest settings at random waking me up. Continued to change without being told to and turn on/off randomly. Tech support offered no help. Siri does not assist using the Apple TV 4 remote as the ads make it appear. Overall disappointed at how expensive they are for the poor product that is delivered. Not sure if this is the apple system or Hue but they need to figure it out.

    I got this as an addition to my 4 light hue package. I needed 5 bulbs so i got this one on its own. I synced it with my google home speaker and i am able to change colors, brightness and even turn it on and off from another room. You basically have all the colors in a rainbow once you download the hue app and control the colors lights that way. I love the hue bulbs and will recommend it to anyone looking to buy smart bulbs. Works best with the app and amazing with google home speaker.

    Ever since I bought my first two I have been adding more. I love being able to control every light bulb in the house with my iPad. I turn them off all at once when I go to sleep. I also set the ambiance using the white scale to my desired level of white and yellow for the mood I am in. I use the colors on the app for parties or just a change of atmosphere and I can select preset themes. They also surprised me that they could find my WiFi router at great distances even in a stucco house (steel caging disrupts signals).
