Is white the only default color when power is applied?

Will the lights power on to the same color powerd off at the mains?

  • Yes, the bulb "resets" only to white when powered off and on with (say) the wall switch.

    If you leave the main power to the bulbs on and use the Hue App to turn them on and off, then the last color setting is retained.

    I've read on an unofficial hue forum that the Philips Hue development team is aware that the ability to remember the last setting when the power is cut is a frequently requested feature. Perhaps this feature will be available in future firmware updates, but this is purely speculative at this point.
