A useful but expensive strip of lights
I bought this to add to my other hue lights. An interesting difference: The hue lights always turn on standard white and then yo I bought this to add to my other hue lights. An interesting difference: The hue lights always turn on standard white and then you have to change the colour. The lightstrip always turns on to the colour it was last time it turned off. You also can't group the lightstrip in the same way within the hue app. I installed this as under counter lighting and added it to my home automation system so the lights turn to a warm yellow when I enter the kitchen. Love it! …

Picks up where the lightbulbs left off
I recently received my light strips and I'm very happy with the quality and characteristics of this light. I'm familiar with LED s I recently received my light strips and I'm very happy with the quality and characteristics of this light. I'm familiar with LED strips as I've used others for under cabinet lighting. The qualities of the light are very similar to what I've previously experienced with this light type.
As for the color of the strips, nice saturation and the like. If you like the bulbs, you'll like the light strips. …

The lights function like you would expect, but the design is just awful. Not only is there a massive plug with about 6 feet or co The lights function like you would expect, but the design is just awful. Not only is there a massive plug with about 6 feet or cord, there is also a power brick. There really is no good way to hide these. The pictures on the actual box are very deceiving b.c it is impossible to hide the wiring. I love all of the other hue products, but this is just silly. …

The label is very misleading. They are not "strips" it is a single strip.
I was excited because the advertising and packaging says "strips". But in fact it is only a single, very expensive strip and each I was excited because the advertising and packaging says "strips". But in fact it is only a single, very expensive strip and each strip that you buy has a separate wall plug in. It seems to be deliberately misleading as well - when the box uses the plural, you expect more than one. You don't see a laptop box that says "laptops". So far, I can't get them to work with the base. Thus far, not really impressed. But it sure SOUNDED fantastic! …

Can you run the LightStrips on 12 volt electricity, as in a boat or RV?

My question exactly.....Can they be hardwired?
- Asked by Frank G from Danville

These will indeed need a standard power outlet.
The power cable is a fixed length as well. Howev These will indeed need a standard power outlet.
The power cable is a fixed length as well. However, the light strip itself can be cut to length and the power supply can be mounted under a cabinet....so its certainly possible to hide fairly well. You could also have an outlet added underneath the cabinets so no wire shows at all. …

You will need to download a third-party application to control the Hue lights from your MacBook Pro. You will need to download a third-party application to control the Hue lights from your MacBook Pro. There are a lot more apps than applications available.
