Incredibly simple to setup with spectacular results.
Got this system for a small (about 12 x 12) home office. Have one bulb in the ceiling fan, one in a small lamp in the far corner o Got this system for a small (about 12 x 12) home office. Have one bulb in the ceiling fan, one in a small lamp in the far corner of the room and one in an accent light behind my laptop while on its stand. Setup couldn't be easier... insert the bulbs and turn them all on, plug the signal unit into one of the open ethernet ports on your base station (cable included) and connect the AC adapter. Start the app up and press the button on the signal unit and you're all set. Bulbs at their highest setting are brighter than expected though still not as bright as conventional bulbs but that's to be expected. Really phenomenal option for people who work from home and want total control over the brightness of multiple lights to optimize their screen work. Price may seem steep but it is what it is. Though once you install it and use it you'll think it's worth every penny. …

I read an article and decided to purchase this product over a much more expensive home lighting system. One day later....Extremely I read an article and decided to purchase this product over a much more expensive home lighting system. One day later....Extremely Happy! Product was very easy and simple to set up...in Fact my six year old did all of the connections and i downloaded the app. The light output is as good or better than your normal light bulb and the color combination you see and get its just makes it that much better. I installed one on my sons room and tried the gradually dimming feature and it worked on the first try. If you are considering spending over 4K on a full house lighting system....make sure you spend the $199 starter kit and you will be Happy you did. I will be ordering more bulbs as they become available to change the entire house to this new system. …

So Far So Good
Very cool product. App could use some tweaking to make it a bit easier to use as there was a bit of a learning curve. All in all Very cool product. App could use some tweaking to make it a bit easier to use as there was a bit of a learning curve. All in all, set up was very easy (less than 3 minutes). I have the starter pack and 2 additional bulbs. I'll be ordering 10 more today to set up more rooms. Groups are a bit of a pain to set up as you have to create a scene and from what I can figure out so far can only set up colors in a group from an existing photo. Colors can be adjusted on an individual light but won't save unless in a scene. Could be I need to spend even more time on the app. Fade function didn't work in my first few trials but again I expect this to be me just taking more time to figure everything out. I also haven't been able to get a group programmed on my iphone to appear on the home ipad for others to use. Not sure if there's a way but will be a pain to set them up on multiple devices. Only a 2 year warranty even though they say the light is good for 15. Having stated all the learning issues, it's a very cool product, easy to get started and in my opinion completely replaces a crestron type lighting system. It is expensive but much less than a home lighting system would be. I will continue to hopefully replace every bulb in the house as various sizes are hopefully released. …

Lots of customization if your iPhone is Jailbroken ( I can tap my home button twice to turn my lights on using HueHueHue and have all of my lights turn on )
5 Hue lights = one light bulb. Lots of light for less $
Remote Access via LTE/4G
Expensive startup cost
Hue application is pretty clunky and could be much more user friendly
Lights are not nearly as ranged as they claim to be. Most dark colors do not exist in these lights ( Dark reds, greens, blues are very limited ) and is definitely not as advertised. Hopefully this will be changed with future updates if the lights have the capability?
Dimmer or On/Off switch is mad expensive for what it is …

Curious as to how bright the Philips hue bulbs are, what is the wattage?
- Asked by Gerard L from Union
- Jan 25, 2015
The wattage is 8w, but don't worry about that. The light output is quoted at 600lm. Bear in mind tho The wattage is 8w, but don't worry about that. The light output is quoted at 600lm. Bear in mind though that that would be with all the internal elements running flat out, so less with colours other than white.
Philips say the output is comparable to that of a 40w incandescent bulb. …
