I'm a fan of HUE bulbs— we have 18 of them installed, so far (19 if you include the Friends of Hue Bloom Lamp), with plans for man I'm a fan of HUE bulbs— we have 18 of them installed, so far (19 if you include the Friends of Hue Bloom Lamp), with plans for many more (including outdoor lighting, if they ever get around to it)— so I had high hopes for the Bloom Lamp.
Unfortunately, though, this particular "friend of HUE" could use some refinement.
Take for example the fact that the Bloom does not work with Philips "off the shelf" recipes. Like the "relax" setting or "energize" or "reading" recipes that came pre-loaded with the Hue app? Too bad; they don't recognize the Bloom as being a part of your network.
No, the Bloom only works with photo recipes. Why was even overlooked? A mystery.
Next, take the device itself, which is hard wired to the 110v plug making it impossible to thread the power cord through conduits if you'd like to "hide" the power supply. You've got the large lamp on one end, a rather bulky power adapter at the other, and the power cord running between them. The only way to thread the cable through cable channel holes would be to cut the cord and then rewire it (and you won't be doing that, believe me).
Does the Bloom Lamp light up? Yes. Change colors? You bet. It even looks sleek (or at least sleek-ish).
But there are a few niggling concerns about the product that are just off-putting enough to make it more of a novelty— and a very limited one at that— rather than a part of my overall plan for the total HUE-ification of my home. …

Bloom is no hue bulb
If you are buying the Bloom as another Hue bulb, you are in for a surprise. It looks like the Hue bulbs have special LED's so that If you are buying the Bloom as another Hue bulb, you are in for a surprise. It looks like the Hue bulbs have special LED's so that they can make all the white colors of normal bulbs in addition to colors. But as any Hue owner knows, hue bulbs can't make green thru blue on the spectrum because of it. Now the Bloom on the other hand can make rich greens, blues, turquoise, but can't make "white" light like the Hue bulbs can. That is why it can't be used in light recipes (whites) but can in photo recipes (colors). So, if you want more of the same, buy more bulbs and add them to a lamp, if you want to get some intense color you miss from the hue system, then get a few Blooms also. …

More is better?
Big fan of the PhilipsHue and the Bloom is great that it offers multiple color lighting at the same time (have both red and green Big fan of the PhilipsHue and the Bloom is great that it offers multiple color lighting at the same time (have both red and green mixed at different part of the bulb). However, would much prefer the Bloom to be bigger and agree with the other posting that it should be recognized by the pre-set lighting features in the Hue's app.
Lastly, adding timing feature in the Hue's app would be great to control when bulbs to on and off …

VERY entertaining and the best is yet to come
The Hue lights are amazing. At the end of the day, how can lights be amazing? Well, they can. I love how they turn on when I pul The Hue lights are amazing. At the end of the day, how can lights be amazing? Well, they can. I love how they turn on when I pull up into my driveway. I enjoy being able to fully control the lights from my iPhone. The Bloom lamp wont do everything the lights can, but almost. The Halloween app from the ITunes store plays really creepy music that syncs with all my lights.....this is so scary I plan on buying less candy this year - which will offset the cost of the lights - which aren't cheap. I have about $400 in starter set, lamp, and light strips. The lamp is very minimalistic, not unattractive but not a beauty.
Everyone who has seen my lights has either bought them or want them......
Setup was easy.
As more app come out (I will get the XMAS app next month) I think this will really take off. Huge potential.
I wish they made outdoor lights. …

Blooms that failed quite rapidly
I have 11 Blooms in total, 2 have failed within in the first few hours and one with about 40 hours. 2 are being replace by Philips I have 11 Blooms in total, 2 have failed within in the first few hours and one with about 40 hours. 2 are being replace by Philips right now, and the 3rd one I just purchased and now needs to go back. not impressed with the blooms at all, I have 11 blooms, 2 led strips, 8 Gu10's and 13 of the connected bulbs and 1 tap switch. Everything else works fine and the updates to the apps are quite fast addressing the problems especially with the new iPhone 6+. But I would hope that the bloom is going to be a better product because I am not going to be paying 80.00 for a light bulb that doesn't even come close to the advertised life. I just hope I can get at least a few thousand of hours out of the rest of my lights, as far as the other 2 blooms I just bought I think I will be sending them back for a refund. …

Cool while it lasted
My Bloom just stopped working after six months or so (past Apple's return period, unfortunately). I barely turned it on at all dur My Bloom just stopped working after six months or so (past Apple's return period, unfortunately). I barely turned it on at all during that period, but it was plugged in the whole time. I'd chalk this up to just a rare defect, but I've found a lot of complaints on line about this same thing happening to people after several months. …

Yes, there are various third party apps that allow you to rotate colours, use set colour profiles/ef Yes, there are various third party apps that allow you to rotate colours, use set colour profiles/effects, et cetera... Two of my favourites:
Scintillator – This app lets you change the colours at a preset interval or even to special effects, i.e. like flickering candles, fading, et cetera...
Goldee – This is more of a dynamic lighting app, not customizable but it gently shifts the colours based on one of the preset theme, like how natural light from the sun shifts because of clouds, shadows, et cetera. …
