HUE is a WINNER!!!
Bought a starter kit plus 3 individual bulbs today. Took 10 minutes to set up. I had to convince the "geniuses" at the local Apple Bought a starter kit plus 3 individual bulbs today. Took 10 minutes to set up. I had to convince the "geniuses" at the local Apple Store that HUE really existed. They went online, discovered it did, went in the back room, found and sold them. No one had asked about them before I walked in.
They assured me I could return them in 14 days, so I decided to try them. Hue and the free App is amazing! Download your own pic. Touch it to turn on the lights. Group anyway you want, dim independently, color control independently.
If you turn off the wall switch, the bulbs forget where they were. Turn the switch back on, and the bulbs turn on to default approx. 3000 degrees K. Then touch any mood you set up on the iPhone, and it instantly changes colors & intensity.
We have a 50's Diner designed kitchen with black / white tile, red wall tile, red neon accents, so touch the 50's Diner photo, and 4 bulbs come on, 2 red and 2 whatever temp white you choose. Halloween? Orange no problem. Christmas? Red and Green.
1-A must if you are really into home automation, home theatre, etc.
2-Extremely high quality feel bulb design
3-Bulbs run barely warm and draw 8.5 watts max
4-Super easy to use
5-No need to use your iPhone. Set the onboard timer function for on / off. Gives that lived in look, and no need to turn on / off every time.
6-Full dimming capability
7-Default to Warm White (looks like 3000 degree K) if power fails and comes back on
8-No high frequency sound, no flicker, no RFI interference
9-Instantly group able and groups can be changed instantly
10-Philips is a leader in LED technology. I have over 100 Philips LED bulbs in service for over a year, with no failures. yet, Lights of America and other off brands have failed 100% in a year! The electronics fail, not the LED's themselves in the off brands.
11-Touch a pic of the room to turn the lights on.
12-Set a different background pic for every page of moods.
13-Set a page up for every room. This groups the bulbs to a scene in that room by choosing the specific page on the iPhone.
2-Only medium Base available today. I need Candelabra base and need R30
3-600 Lumen output is a little low but is OK
These bulbs are NOT going back!!! Wife loves them, as do I. 'Nuff said!!! …

Low lights not so low. Timers Fail.
I've got 4 bulbs, two down lights and two blooms. I'd like to change the lighting every hour with a 9 minute fade. Too much to ask I've got 4 bulbs, two down lights and two blooms. I'd like to change the lighting every hour with a 9 minute fade. Too much to ask. There are always different bulbs that go out night-after-night instead of fading to the next scene. Sometimes they all go out. Sometimes this one or that one, I'll never know which will malfunction. When I tap the icon for what's supposed to be on, they all come on as expected, so it's not that the scene is not configured correctly. Checked and re-checked and all the timers are in place, all the bulbs selected for every day of the week. If it is something I'm doing wrong, someone needs to build a much better interface, but doesn't seem like an OE [operator error] at this point.
I'd like some really low light for movie night on the order of low movie theater red lights to keep the pupil engaged. Can't get them low enough and when you try **BAM** they go out. Same when they come on. You can set a 9 minute fade-in all you want, the lights will noticeably bang on. Pretty irritating when you are trying for a pleasantly subtle fade-in. …

The app is very simple, and with the Ambify app the lights go to your music quite well. I am looking to upgrade with an LED strip sometime soon, but if you are a gadget person these lights are a MUST HAVE. I can't even stand my bedroom light at night anymore, these set the perfect mood for any feeling. …

All of the dimming happens within the LED bulb. To operate correctly and consistently the LED lights need full power. They can work with dimmers set to full brightness, but some people complain about buzzing sounds when used like this. There is also a risk that some people may try to use your dimmer switch and get unpredictable results. …

I have a custom home automation system and integrating the Hue lights was very easy. There are also many third-party apps for Hue lights due to this easy, open API that Philips exposed. If your particular home automation system does not support Philips Hue yet, you can send a request to the vendor. These are popular, so it would be a good addition to most systems. …
