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. …

Details, Details, Details
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. …

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 …

Understanding why Bloom/Iris Have Different Colors than Bulbs
For all those complaining about why the Friends of Hue (FOH), such as Bloom/Iris/Light Strips, are not included in light recipes o For all those complaining about why the Friends of Hue (FOH), such as Bloom/Iris/Light Strips, are not included in light recipes or that they have different colors than the regular BR30/A19 bulbs that came with the starter kit, you have to understand how they are designed. The regular bulbs have a white LED that is always on and this LED is required for creating white light. It is the LED used in light recipes (energize, reading, etc.). That's why bulbs cannot produce deep rich greens, blues, etc. The FOH collection does not include the white LED. Thus, while it cannot be used in light recipes (which, you will notice, are designed for white light), it can produce deep greens, blues, etc. It is not a design defect - simply a design choice. As FOH are not meant to be functional lighting and are instead meant for accent lighting, they do not have the white LED thus allowing them to produce deep colors. As the bulbs are meant for functional lighting (meaning the light you turn on when you need to see something), they have the white LED always on. Hope this helps explain things a bit more. …

Great product. This is more for an accent or fun piece to everyday person or hate to say for creative people that would use these Great product. This is more for an accent or fun piece to everyday person or hate to say for creative people that would use these outside or their normal use. I get a lot of question about "Do I really use this lamp," "Does it really make a difference in my home?" The answer is yes! I have all of the Hue products and the lamps are mostly in my bedroom and hallways. They light up the entire bedroom and hallway with their bright lumens. 2 things these are Great for.... Obviously Geofencing, but for sleeping and waking up. My Hue's simulate SunSets when going to bed & a SunRise when waking up. Got these puppies synced to IFTTT, great with Weather Updates & my Jawbone Up24 that notifies my lights to turn on & off when I wake-up or go to bed. Join the Hue! …

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. …

Unfortunately It will not work since this is a 120 volts. I wouldn't advise you try Hey Claudio,
Unfortunately It will not work since this is a 120 volts. I wouldn't advise you try using it with a transformer since that will just shorten the life of the Hue lights.. As for me these are GREAT and I'd like to have all of the starter kits. However I am like you living in a 220 volts country.

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. …
