    Philips Hue Does It Right

    I've used Philips Hue products in my smart home for over 6 months, and I have nothing negative to say. I live in an apartment, which makes lighting a bit difficult. These PAR-39 bulbs are no exception. I'm actually using them indoors in a torchere in my living room, because they are brighter than the standard A19. They are NOT selectable for the warmth of light / color temperature like the white/ambient ones are. They are probably 2700K, so a good 'standard' warmth (not too white, not too yellow). The wattage was more important than the warmth. These are equivalent to a 100 Watt standard bulb each. Just like the other bulbs, they are accessible via the smart phone app or a switch, and can be incorporated into whatever automation sequence you like. I use Apple HomeKit with them, and it works fine. Excellent product.

    Hue lights are great, but...

    These lights are great. I set them to dusk to dawn and it truly is set it and forget it. I realize I could have bought an entire fixture to have disk to dawn, but the convience of not have to the electrical to switch out the fixture & just change out the bulb is week worth it for me. I am a fan of all hue lights my only issue is not with these, but with hue overall not making their other lights bright enough. These are bright enough, but the inside lights are not. They need to make brighter than 800 lumens.

    Bought these two replace to flood light bulbs located near the back of our home. My purpose was to have them run in the evening from sunset to sunrise. I have an existing Hue system and hub. I did not want to buy a timer. It literally is as easy as screwing them in and adding them to the hub via the Phillips software. They turn on from sunrise to sunset, and I can even dim one of them so that it does not shine in our neighbors window. A little pricey for the bulbs but I recommend them.

    These are the connected flood bulbs to own. I have had ge link and sylvania. These are much better. They just work. The others loose connection and have to be relinked. They work with hue accessories too, such as switches and motion sensors. Home kit functionality as well. They should’ve made these years ago. The only thing that would make these better is a white/ color version. Use them daily with out failing. Grand slam Philip’s Hue!

    I have this outdoor bulb in the recessed fixture on my front door entrance. The recessed fixture does not have a cover on it which is good because the package insert states that the bulb is not suitable for closed fixtures. The bulb is extremely bright which is great for nighttime. So bright that I actually dim it to 70-80% brightness at nighttime because if it's at 100% it blinds me when I look out the peephole in the front door.

    These Hue lamps replaced Bluetooth floods from another company that were OK but not great. I’m not interested in having color options. I just want to illuminate my outside areas and be able to control, along with my other Hue lights, from my phone or watch. The Hue app and experience are so much better and more user friendly than the other brand. I like being able to change brightness routines throughout the night.

    My bulb is used in a recessed recepticle on my front porch. I connected this bulb with ease to the Philips Hue hub which I then connected to a Wink hub. Love it. I no longer have to go down/up the stairs of my 3 floor townhouse to turn on/off the porch light. The bulb itself produces a very bright light if it isn’t dimmed which I like because the shrubs around my front porch are well lit at night.

    Excellent outdoor light. Got them on the first day of release. Very very bright. As usual, fast easy set up with the hub. Set a nightly timer through the app and it ran perfectly, as usual. I put these in my pre-existing lights and they fit perfectly. ( fit inside the metal light shades ) Standard PAR 38 socket. I highly recommend as an upgrade from standard bulbs.

    I love all of the Hue products. Got this to put on my front patio to tie in with my Ring Doorbell when motion is detected. My only minor complaint is that it took a couple of apps and a few cheats to get the light to turn on when it detects motion. I wish Philips would update their app to tie in with other apps like Ring and Nest door bells. Other than that 10/10!

    We were excited when new outdoor Hue products were announced earlier this year, and these new outdoor flood lights have not disappointed. We have had them installed for just over a month; they have worked seemlessly with our existing Hue bulbs and app and are an excellent addition to our home security set up. They don’t change color like some of the other Hue lights, but that isn’t a feature we needed.

    I used these lights in combination with a ring camera instead of a ring flood light and IFTTT. Since Alexa can’t turn the lights for a ring camera but it can for Phillips lights I set a motion alert for the ring camera to IFTTT and turn on the Phillips lights. It gives me a lot more options for using the flood lights with Alexa.

    I’ve used this for about 4 months now on my front porch, and I love the way I can dim it or brighten it depending upon whether or not I have holiday lighting on my house. Oh, the luxury of being on the 3rd floor of my townhouse and turning on this light...ahhhhh!! Also love the way I can turn it on from miles away. Worth the money to me.

    Wanted to be able to turn on/off my outdoor deck flood lights to see back yard without having to get up and flip the switch every time. Set up was easy with the Hue app. Also connected them to my Alexa Echo and now with just a voice command can turn lights off and on.

    Bought these to replace our regular flood lights not because we needed to but because almost all of our lights are Hue. These put out so much light and can be dimmed by telling Alexa or Siri. Also, now when I come home my whole house lights up inside and out.

    Bought to be able to automate the outdoor lights in the front of my house. Connected them to my existing Hue setup and now my outside lights automatically turn on when o get home of off when I leave. They can also be setup to randomly or on a timer to turn on/off.

    This outdoor light was an awesome addition to my smart home, in low lighting conditions I’m able to turn on the front door light and get a better look at who is ringing my doorbell. Very valuable if automated to turn on as you approach your door at night.

    Transitioning into Hue Lights has been the easiest and best thing for my smart house. I have outdoor spotlights that these work great in. Theyre not completely exposed to rain but they have given me no issues.

    Like all products in this line, these bulbs are easy to install and set up with your existing Hue bridge. Operation is simple and convenient with either the Hue app, HomeKit, or the other third party apps for Hue lights. Very satisfied with my purchase.

    My first time purchasing any Philips Hue product. I was going out of town and wanted to be able to make it look like someone was home and this product was my first choice. Setting up the lights and the Bridge were easy and it worked like a charm!

    Although this is designed for outdoor use, I use it in the kitchen above my sink in a single recessed light bulb can. It is super bright. As with all Philips Hue light bulbs, set up was easy and works great out of the box.
