    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.

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

Because of the Blooms design I thought it would be great for spot lighting walls... I was wrong!

    The amount of light this gives off for the price is pathetic. You're WAY better off saving yourself $20 and just buying a regular hue bulb. As others have mentioned, it also does not work with the stock mood recipes in the hue app.

    Really priced this product wrong... If it was $20 cheaper than a hue bulb I might not have gone right back to apple and returned it.

In my opinion, they are like a never ending color changing coat of paint to enhance everything about your at home lighting experience.
    I love mine, I have invested in 11 bulbs and the Hue Bloom Lamp, and my house looks amazing. They are easily portable and I have placed them in many homes, whether I'm spending the night or simply throwing an event. I live Hue and all the amazing apps involved.
    Thanks for brightening my day everyday! They even prepare me for the weather as well as turn on when I get home- those are just a few of the simple features Hie has that has changed my life forever. Never going back to bulbs, plus what I spent I have already made up in electric bills,

Here's my impression: it's breathtaking and adds rich color where the hue bulbs cannot. So what if the lamp isn't compatible with the basic light recipes? The basic hue bulbs can do both. Bloom adds deeper color and a magical layer to nighttime scenes creating a dreamscape beyond the hue bulb story. I positioned the Bloom behind my 55"TV facing the wall and the hue scenes now not only create magic from my lighting but the wall behind my TV has become an expansive part of each scene. I love Bloom!
