    Still loving mine, EVEN AFTER A YEAR!

    • Written by from St. George

    These bulbs are awesome! I use mine everyday. The color feature gets old after a while but with the right app (I use Simple Hue) these bulbs are the handiest things since sliced bread! Highly recommended.

    Exceeded My Expectations

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    I purchased these ahead of a house party we were having and although expensive, I am more than pleased with them! It was definitely a conversation piece, and the lights really set the mood whether we wanted to have fun or just relax. The stock app is fun to play with, but I came across an app called Goldee that controls and changes the color schemes dynamically. They have different themes, such as 'concentrate', 'relax', 'romantic', and the lights will subtly change colors from one to the other. It really transforms the room!

    It works flawlessly as well. As much as I've played with these lights, turned them off and on, changed colors, etc., I have not experienced any flaws in their operation. As long as my wifi is running, my lights can be controlled with my phone.

    My wife was a little adverse to the lights at first because you control them from your phone, but I explained to her she can turn the lightswitch off and on and it will behave like any normal lightbulb. I got her the app on her phone as well, and she can control and play with them too!

    Lighting I would recommend.

    • Written by from Austin

    I've owned this starter pack for over a year now and I can confidently say that I would recommend this lighting to any of my buddies. I've used it for everyday use in my bedroom and while it has its quirks I'll list, it has been the best companion.

    First quirk is that if the power goes off the light come on full brightness when power is restored which is frustrating during some storms at night. Second is the companion app is much improved over when I first had it but its still not perfect with instant on but that might apse be due to my bridge being down stairs with the router.

    Other than those two issues that pop up rarely I've used these for at least a year if not longer and I have used them every single day in my bedroom and I've loved having the ability to control the lighting for my mood and controlling the brightness depending on my task at hand. Philips keeps up with the app on a fairly regular basis adding new features and fixing bugs which is nice to have continued support. The only feature I don't use is the geo location because I'd rather not have my lights turn on when I arrive home during the day which its not hard to pull out my phone.

    WORTH IT

    • Written by from Quincy

    At first I was very reluctant to buy these, maybe even after the first week. But after owning them for months I've grown to absolutely love them. 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.

    Awesome Product

    • Written by from Gilbert

    Never thought that lights would have such an impact. Coupled with IFTTT, this product rocks, especially after the latest updates, which improved some nagging issues like bulb startup. The update process can be a bit fiddly, but it works.

    Amazing Product!

    • Written by from San Jose

    This is one of my favorite tech items. Setting up the lights just took a few minutes. The possibilities for this are endless. It is an expensive item, but the electrical savings will pay for itself down the road. You can have a lot of fun while reducing your carbon footprint. :-)

    There are plenty of third-party apps that work great with the Hue lights. My favorite right now is "Hue Lights." If you are a techie, you can also use the Hue API to create limitless schedules, events, and light shows from your own server.

    A lot of people posted YouTube videos, so you can see these in action. The Hue Lightstrips are a great addition to the Starter Pack. They can really transform a room!

    Excellent Design!!!

    • Written by from MILPITAS

    I purchased the Disney Storytime Light and the Light Strip plus the Bulbs all together. Everything works as expected.

    For some reason I mistakenly thought that the Bridge itself can use Wifi.. and it does have a wifi symbol on the unit, but there seems to be no configuration tool to attach it to Wifi... so I'm still using ethernet cable. I would rather have it use Wifi though.

    Took me 10mins to setup all units. Excellent if you guys purchase the $3 app called Hue Disco if you want the Philips bulbs to help with coloring your home party.

    Great Product but Flawed App

    • Written by from WHITEHALL

    The Hue Starter pack of 3 bulbs and the bridge worked perfectly. The two extra bulbs were recognized by the app and were named etc, etc. However, when scenes were selected in the app, the two extra bulbs in the next room did not respond. They did respond to the slider controls in the app and did turn off and turn on using the slider controls. Curiously, the Philips Hue Community website (which can recognize one's Hue bridge/hardware) had scenes created by people which, when selected, worked perfectly with my bulbs. Therefore, the app is terrible and needs work but the Hue lighting system is wonderful and worth the money.

    Eaxactly as advertised - the new way to light your home

    • Written by from Winnipeg

    Just came from the Apple store in Winnipeg. Bought this starter pack and literally installed it to my wi-fi in about 3-5 minutes tops. Simply Brilliant. The bulbs are very bright at 600 lumens and the rainbow of possibilities in lighting is endless. The free app by Philips is easy to use, good design and creates the perfect mood for any situation. I plan on buying more bulbs in the near future to eventually change all the lighting in my home. The perfect solution for energy efficiency as they use only 9 watts and the safety benefits speak for themselves. Thoroughly impressed. This is my first app enabled product and it didn't disappoint...

    This is the best accessory for the iPhone by far. I hope Philips comes up with HUE LED Spotlights and that they keep improving the Hue App.

    Absolutely Awesome!

    • Written by from West Covina

    First and foremost, it's easy to setup. I purchased the starter kit with 3 bulbs and the bridge at the Apple store. I followed the directions from the website and within minutes had my iPhones, 2-iPads, and iMac controlling the bridge. The bridge needed to be updated but an icon came up once I wanted to set an alarm to a light. The bulbs are bright enough, I replaced with 75w incandescent and just depends on HOW YOU SET UP YOUR SCENE, yes, you can setup hundreds of combinations per lamp if you want. As most of the electronics I purchase I read up on comments and ratings, there was a lot of haters for this product and almost didn't buy it. It was a youtube post that changed my mind. By the way, there was a post that they could only program for 7 days a week, um, yeah..... There is many ways to program each light, set up timers and even location so when you get home the lights turn on and off when you leave.

    Awesome Light Package

    • Written by from EAST STROUDSBURG

    Purchased the Starter Set yesterday. Set it up this evening and had everything running in a few minutes. Setup app on my Wife's phone, Son's phone and a couple of iPads. Even was able to share custom settings to all 5 controllers. It was very intuitive and not hard at all to setup. We made a custom "Halloween" setting and surprised our Granddaughter when she came upstairs from watching a movie. Can't wait to get more bulbs and do more "light" designing! I highly recommend this product. Lots of fun.

    This is like So Cool and truly what future light should look like and I like you can use different color with in IOS product. I just hope in future the price can drop and be more affordable. But overall it is really worth the money and bring your home into the future

    Very Pleased!

    • Written by from Loma Linda

    Setup was so simple. The versatile nature of the lights will enhance any setting from family dinner time, to watching a great movie, to reading, to relaxing. I purchased the starter kit, one additional HUE bulb and the Friends of Hue Bloom lamp. Then I took it a step further and picked up some Belkin WeMo switches and pulled everything together with IF This Then That (IFTTT) and the results are nothing short of spectacular! Want to trigger a HUE sunset at sunset? No problem there's a IFTTT recipe for that. Want a repeating schedule for any light no matter if it's HUE or connected to a WeMo? No problem there's a IFTTT recipe for that. Want to geofence your lighting behaviors? WeMo's got you covered. I now control the lighting in every room of the house from my IOS device, and while I have HUE presently in our living area, I will certainly be expanding this in the very near future. Do not limit yourself by not taking advantage of the IFTTT abilities. Be warned it's all very addicting.
