Stunningly good and i am still learning their best use. Love using a holiday snap for a colour balance. Our fiji sunset is fantastic, bondi beach, krugar skyline, etc. My wife’s favourite is a pink rose.

Smart light but not smart enough. Bought it for £84 on prime day, but at full price i believel price is rip-off and requirements of philips hub is compulsory which is another rip-off, this things supposed to work without hue hub and complete wireless but instead it has to connect with wire directly to wifi router which is not a positive innovation, the bulbs are wireless and many devices like laptop, router, mobiles etc are wireless than why i have to use philips hue hub?. And another rip off things is i need another device like amazon alexa or google home speaker etc. Need if you want bulb to be controlled by your voice, so complete package which needs router+ philips hue hub+ bulb+ alexa etc. So many wifi devices with lots of wires means not energy efficience as you would expect from package, philips need to eliminate the use of hue completely and make things controllable directly using mobile devices, the bulbs are are bright enough in white or yellow light but not bright enough whrn use with colours like red, green etc. Also this is too expensive when compared with two bulb package that come with ambient 2 light bulb+philips hub+ wireless switch, unfortunately wireless switch does not come with expensive (this) package. So this package is not much user friendly for people who are older aged or disable as it requires smartphone to control the light. The smart light which is not as smart as it would expected. Philips needs to work bit hard and makes this innovation more innovative in next version of iteration.

Alexa does sometimes have trouble recognising the devices and sometimes fails to work but overall they’re just fine. Set up with my alexa and works a charm. Alexa does sometimes have trouble recognising the devices and sometimes fails to work but overall they’re just fine. Only annoying part is that alexa doesn’t recognise all the commands for different light settings.

Great for creating the right light and ambience to suit the room. We bought these bulbs along with a hue table lamp and a bridge recently, to be able the change the light setting in some rooms and change the ambience when required. We also bought a philips bridge which is a little modem like device that means you can control all your hue items from one point. I use my iphone and my ipad. You can set the lamp and the bulbs to a huge array of colour shades, but philips has also helpfully provided a pre-set colour selection. So, for example, when i need a bright light in my office (i work from home) i use the ‘concentrate’ option, but once i’ve finished working (or concentrating, or i should be. You can also use your own photos to set a colour – so for example, choose a flower or a sunset or holiday photo that you really like the colour of, and it will set the bulb/lamp to a matching colour – clever. The other really useful thing that we have found is you can turn the lights on remotely. So if you are out and about and haven’t already got timers on your lights, you can turn them on when you want.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Very useful, easy to use light bulbs.
  • Love these! They are really easy to set up
  • Hue know it makes sense

Have invested a lot in philips hue kit now so savings on bundles like this are appreciated. Far better than the hive system which it replaced though the standard philips apps could be a little better.

Great product arrived on time and was easy to set up.

I installed these without telling my other half, i then convinced her that a stick i had found in the yard had magical properties and proceeded to change the lights whilst waving the stick around, she freaked out and ran away and i haven’t seen her since.

The king of smart light bulbs, the hue range is fully comparable with homekit for apple meaning you can control the lights with siri from your watch, apple tv and ipad as well as your phone. The hue app has plenty of tricks up its sleeve letting you create routines for leaving the house and going to bed for example. The best thing about these bulbs is how quickly they respond to the app and how the light smoothly changes from one colour to the other.

Colourful and works with echo. Love hue, they work brilliantly in every room. I have them in the bedroom, living room and bathroom but will also be buying strips for my kitchen and landing. Works well with alexa echo too.

Philips hue starter kita great buy for me. These have been a real benefit not only from the ability to create different moods by room but also to be controlled by siri on my iphonefrom a security point of view it’s great to be able to turn your lights on and off in the evening while away to give the appearance you are home. Finally i like the feature which turns lights on ( when close to home) to welcome you when you arrive late and it’s dark outside. Would love to buy extra bulbs for the rest of the house but they are still quite expensive to buy individually.

I didn’t know what relaxing was untill i got these for my room. . I was inspired by a friend to jump on the smart home bandwagon as he has these spread around the house in every room. At first i thought it was all a gimmick and not worth the money. Then as the evening came i realised the full effect of having a lighting setup such as this in a room. It came to no surprise to see that gatherings seemed more special with the right scene set and almost felt like you are controlling the mood and atmosphere just by changing the colour and brightness of a bulb. Movie nights seemed more authentic with a low light orange (like a cinema) and evenings felt like a sunset was occurring in your room. However you choose to spend your free time, these will make it all the more worthwhile. When i eventually bought the bundle, (after spending the best part of an evening painting my walls a different colours) i realised their true potential with the addition of routines. Now my lights slowly get brighter as my morning alarm approaches, then turn off by themselves as i leave for work. Then like clockwork, they turn back on when i arrive home and slowly dim as bedtime approaches.
