Does what it’s supposed to, really well. App could be better but planning to shift all kind of actions to google home other than setting auto turn on in the evening. Works as intended though on another level i am trying to figure out how to set moods at my place, connected with scent diffusers and playing the right kind of content on chromecast. Only then sight, smell and sound become one as an experience.

Expensive, but a lovely flexible system and quite eerie how the colours can change so smoothly.

Excellent quality, but let down by its software. . Beautiful quality bulbs, and nice strong colours. Easy to set up, easy to turn on and off. I’ve dropped a star as navigating the world of third party apps is a bit disappointing. I’m yet to find the function i most want: having a timer which turns the lights on between specific hours when its dark. I can only seem to find either schedule or sun-up/sun-down settings. I think philips need to add some more functionality to their own app, rather than promoting the myriad of variable quality third party apps. For a smart bulb, the software doesn’t seem to be that smart just yet.

Don’t think about it, do it. I was thinking about getting these for ages. The set up is so easy, and integrates nicely with homekit if you are an apple user.

Philips Hue White and Colour Ambiance Wireless Lighting E27 Starter Kit, 3 x Philips Hue 10W E27 Richer Colour Bulbs, 1 x Hue Bridge 2.0, Apple Home Kit Enabled, Works with Alexa : Very configurable lighting system using low power led in multiple if not all light fittings. The wife has told me to stop swapping all the existing lights for hue ones now. Just need to include some in the remodel of my 12yo’s room this summer now he is too big for the cabin bed.

Simple to install and use with unlimited color options. I like them they are easy to install and use,only one thing was tricky for me, when i first installed the bridge, i wanted to test only one bulb, so i open the app and nothing happened. I turned out that each bulb is pre-configured to with the bridge to be bulb # 3 for example. Everything else from that is perfect, they work instantly, never dropped, they respond to siri commands, the colors and brightness are great.

Just love it its that simple. Been getting my flat ready for wireless this and wireless that and these just added that little bit extra. Got mine working with alexa and works a treat no problems at all. One of the best tricks is the fact the lights turn on when i am near home and auto turn off at a set distance when you leave very clever. Defo worth buying and slowly adding more bulbs to system.

Good, but lack of support from phillips. . Great lights, but let down by poor app. Have to use third party app as phillips can’t be bothered to update theirs and don’t respond when you email them for help.

I held back buying these until they came up on the black friday deals. I connected them to alexa and iftt. They are expensive but do produce really nice mood lighting around my house. £50 for an rgb bulb though. Hmm, personally i will wait for the next sale.

Wonderful set up, although there are some issues with the inherent software. Certain bulbs will become unreachable at certain times, or lags in the network.

Both me and partner love it. Both use our phones and are thinking to invest in alexa to make it even better. Only down side is that the hub dose not like wi-fi extenders,which we have. But that’s ok as it swaps to out of home function which means you can still use it when out of home or for this reason we have.

Great product reasonable price. Great product love the fact that you can operate these bulbs with alexa (amazon echo) to turn of the light change the light color and even dim the light all from the comfort of your chair perfect.

I don’t think there could be a better light bulb than this. Of course it would have been better had there been no hub required but i can’t complain. You can group them into rooms and then control them using siri with almost no effort.

Excellent gadget but by no means essential. I’d been eyeing up the hue system for quite some time but had always seen sense and not succommed to the ludicrous pricing. Thankfully prime day came along and allowed me to fulfil my desires at a slightly more affordable rate. Make no mistake, the hue system is fantastic. Very versatile and works with homekit and alexa, however you will find that the novelty of voice control wears off quite quickly and you end up using your smartphone for controlling the lights. Which is fine, as they respond very quickly to the homekit widget in iphone’s control centre. I would recommend you think carefully about where you want to put your hue lights – i’ve used mine in uplighting and table lamps to create a nice ambience in the evenings which is excellent. I do also have a plain white lamp in the hallway which is alright however i have found myself stood next to the light switch whilst waiting for my phone to load up to turn the light off. The same applies to bedside lights – if you wake up in the night and want the light on the easiest way to do this will always be to just turn the light switch on, making a hue bulb redundant, unless of course you buy one of the “tap” physical light switch buttons. Would i buy more – probably.

Hue might seem like an extravagance when you first look at it, but it’s a really useful product. The ability to dim lights, change their colour/tone and remotely turn lights on/off is brilliant. Extra features by philips like presence mimicking, sensors and switches are all great too. You can even download third party apps that utilise the hue api and for example, sync your lights with music. The bulbs are really great quality and are led, so you’re saving on the cost of electricity as well. The system comes into its own when connected to something like an echo (i have two) – voice activated lights are amazing and genuinely useful.

These lights work perfectly with my setup and work seamlessly with ios or google now. No complaints here apart from the high price tag.

These are a great piece of kit, very well made, work well and are very bright. The whole ecosystem of philips hue is very good and definitely worth buying into. I really like how they can intergrate themselves into apps, i. Sleep cycle to act as a sunrise simulator and they are really good for being able to control away from the house. I would definitely recommend if you are interested in going down the smart house route.

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 …
