Brace yourself for spending countless hours tinkering with the settings
Written by Michael O from Virginia Beach
While I found the idea behind Philips Hue great, the software provided, as well as the Hue website are awful. Luckily 3rd party apps that make better use of these light's astounding capabilities are coming up. Still, get prepared to spend countless hours tinkering with the settings and your control over the lights failing just when you need it most. This is the second great Philips product I own that is impaired by substandard software.
I purchased one dozen single pack Hue light bulbs after falling in love with the starter kit. Much to my dismay, only half of the light bulbs "worked". Sure, they lit up, but they were not recognizable by the Philips Hue Hub. When they work - they are wonderful, but I wish that half of mine had not been DOA!
