    I originally purchased the recently released Hue light bar to provide some backlight for my computer. Little did I realize this small investment would open a vortex which I can’t seem to escape. It led me to purchase these bulbs to sync with the rest of the room, safe to say now I am addict.As a result I have since purchased a few more lights for the outside of my home. Also the remote light switch solved a conundrum where I had an inconvenient light switch wired behind a door.Philips has really got me sucked into this home automated lighting thing. All I can say is if you can afford such a luxury you won’t be disappointed.DUB TIP: Keep an eye out of for some used bulbs on Amazon. They will save you a few bucks and they are backed by Amazon’s same great guarantee.Pros:☺ All sorts of lighting configurations and automated settings☺ ConvenienceCons:☹ Cost☹ Requires and additional bridge unitOverall: If you can stomach the cost of these bulbs, they will change your lighting life. RecommendedI enjoy helping consumers make informed decisions. Thank you very much for the ‘Yes’ helpful vote. Please feel free to comment or ask questions related to this product, or other items I have reviewed.

    ¿Quién no ha querido encender un foco desde su celular? Con estos focos, puedes encenderlos y apagarlos desde tu celular (o comprando algún accesorio que más adelante describo). También puedes cambiar de colores, y estos que vende Amazon ya son la 3ra generación, que hace que los colores sean más precisos, aunque no del todo perfectos. Estos focos me han servido para presumir mi sistema de luces inteligentes, ya que puedes atenuarlos cuanto quieras o encenderlos al 100% de la intensidad; también puedes cambiarlos de color, todo ello, desde tu celular o tablet. Por esta razón los recomiendo ampliamente. Si tienes varios focos en un solo cuarto, puedes ajustar cada foco a un color distinto para hacer mezclas interesantes, o puedes hacer que los focos se agrupen para controlar todos como si fueran uno solo (así obteniendo colores idénticos en cada foco).Para que estos focos funcionen, necesitas de un puente o hub  Philips hue 929001180603 smart lighting – iluminación inteligente (Color blanco, 100 – 240 V, 50/60 Hz) . Si no tienes el puente, no podrás cambiarlos de color ni controlar su intensidad. Aunque parezca un gasto adicional, el puente es algo positivo, ya que esto significa que cada foco no se conecta a tu Wifi, sino al puente, por lo que tu internet realmente nada más registra una conexión (la del puente). Si tienes 10 focos, no serán 10 focos conectándose a tu Wifi sino solamente un aparato, es decir, el puente (algunos routers de internet tienen límite de cuántas conexiones pueden aceptar). Si es la primera vez que comprarás un foco de estos, mejor compra algún combo que contenga el Puente, ya que resalto, sin el Puente, tus focos serán normales y no inteligentes.Con la aplicación del teléfono, puedes encender y apagar los focos, cambiarles el color, cambiar su intensidad, e incluso programarlos para que se enciendan a ciertas horas, e incluso, se apaguen cuando salgas de tu casa (mejor dicho, cuando detecten que tu celular ha salido de tu casa).Importante aclarar que si no buscas focos que cambien de color, no te conviene comprar estos focos, sino los blancos  Philips Hue Foco Blanco Individual A19 9W E26 US , ya que los de color son (mucho) más caros.Sin embargo, aclaro, aunque los tengas con toda la intensidad (luminosidad) posible, ni uno ni dos bastarán para iluminar a la perfección un cuarto regular de 15 metros cuadrados. Será una iluminación “buena” a secas, pero no perfecta. Cada foco ofrece 800 lúmenes en su máxima intensidad según el proveedor, pero yo diría que es un poquito menos (los lúmenes miden la potencia de la luz; mientras mayor sean los lúmenes, más potencia de la luz).Una desventaja muy importante a considerar, es que estos focos requieren estar encendidos en el apagador (switch) para que los puedas encender y apagar con tu celular. Si en el apagador los tienes apagados, no los podrás encender con tu celular. Esto genera algunos inconvenientes, el más importante siendo que si los tienes encendidos en el apagador pero apagados con el celular, cuando se va la luz, los focos se resetean y cuando regresa la luz, encontrarás todos encendidos (porque obviamente, los tienes encendidos en el apagador, aunque con tu celular los hayas apagado). Además, siempre que los apagas y los enciendes con el apagador, se resetean, por lo que no recuerdan ni el color ni intensidad en los que los tenías programados.Si vives en una zona donde la luz se vaya constantemente, estos focos podrían ser una pesadilla. Una vez me acosté, los apagué con el celular (los compré para poder apagar las luces sin tener que salirme de la cama) y los focos me despertaron a la media noche porque hubo un apagón y al regresar la luz se encendieron todos estos focos inteligentes.Además de poder controlarlos con el celular, los puedes controlar con un  Philips Lámpara LED Tap Control  o con un  Philips Hue Dimmer Switch US , ya que con el paso del tiempo se vuelve desgastante tener que estar abriendo la aplicación para controlarlos. En un futuro, cuando lleguen a México los Amazon Echo, los podremos controlar con la voz.Como conclusión, los beneficios de estos focos superan sus desventajas.

    I hate having to give a 1 star review for a product I love. I do love the Hue family, I have a lot of their bulbs over my house. However, their customer service for defective devices is TERRIBLE.I called to submit a warranty claim after this bulb died after 2 months. First, I called, and was talking to a helpful person, who got my email and said she’d start the claim. I’d need pictures of the serial number, and the bulb and they’d send me a shipping label to return. As expected, the email asked for pictures of the serial number and product number which I sent. 3 days later I received another email asking for more information, was the bulb used indoors/outdoors (indoors), was it used on a dimmer (no), was it used in a lamp or permanent fixture (lamp). I answered all questions, expecting a shipping label. Instead, I got ANOTHER email from support. What type of material was the lamp made out of? What type of material was the fixture made out of? How many hours a day was the product used? Can I have pictures of the lamp in question?I don’t understand why this process has to be so complicated just to return a defective bulb. Phillips Hue is a great line of product, Phillips customer support is AWFUL.

    I just purchased my second color bulb. Also have two white ambiance in the bedroom and two white lights in the TV room. First, you have to buy a Hue Bridge to get these to work. The Bridge is a one time purchase that will support up to 50 lights. Second these are expensive but giving the product a bad review because of the price is ridiculous as is giving a bad review because a Bridge is required. Finally you have to have an internet signal to the light for it to work.Now for the lights themselves. I have these in multiple rooms, have moved lights around, and made multiple changes to the way I grouped these in the app. All of mine have worked flawlessly. We use the Echo Dot throughout our home and the lights are simple to control via Alexa as long as you use the correct name (remember a table lamp and a table light are different to Alexa).So what can you do with the Hue lights? Turn lights on/off remotely from your phone. Set colors to accent a room (great for football games using team colors). Set lights to come on when your return home so you don’t have a dark house – I have mine turn when my phone shows I’m about a mile away and limit to turn on only after sunset. Just purchased a $2 app that had a fireworks program and changes the lights to your music. Adjust the colors, shades of white, and brightness from the app or through Alexa.My suggestion is to pick an area yo want to try and get a starter kit with a couple of lights. If you are like me, you will quickly come up with new ideas to add more lights to other rooms.

    I waited on these since they were released. I couldn’t see why I would want to buy them at all. Until, I got a white one with an Amazon Echo package deal…..The new Echo can serve as a hub……and control these bulbs……a little. I read that the Hue hub did more……and the package for four of these bulbs and a hub was on sale.I’m now amassing bulbs. I’m embarrassed at how much money I have spent lighting my home. It makes zero economic sense……But, WOW! I have scenes for Morning that wake me up softly and shift to an energizing bluish light. I have gentle red glows fo movie night. My colors shift to less blue in the evening…….and I honestly think it’s improved my sleep.I give zero thought to what I “wasted” on these bulbs. They improve my life in multiple ways. My kids simply ADORE them, and play with their own scene creation. Even my light switch shutoff compulsion is better…..because they shut off automatically when I leave.

    Okay. This is coming from a total geek perspective. I’m a techie, I love automating things via cool gadgets. I finally had saved enough money to purchase a set of hue lights… I have 4 bulbs, 2 strips and 3 blooms. And wow! It’s changed my entire environment… it’s a bit pricey but if you’re into creating some mood for your home, Phillips Hue is the best.

    Purchased this to add to my Philips Hue A19 Starter Kit that I had. Overall, as expected they’re amazing light bulbs with lots of functionality.Firstly, they’re homekit compatible, so once setup, you will be able to control the lights with siri. There’s also a handy feature to turn on or off the lights based on your location, so you can set them to turn on once you come home or set them to turn off as soon as you leave your house. Also, they have an alarm feature that allows you to turn on the lights at a certain time and you can choose if you want the lights to fade into your alarm or just turn on right at your alarm time. I have a pair setup in my office and it great to set the mood for how you feel.My one con for this light bulb would be the price as it is really expensive.Note: If you’ve never owned Philips hue before, you will need a Phillips hue bridge to connect any of their light bulbs.If you found this review helpful, please consider giving it a Like

    You know the new joke that goes “My friends asked me to borrow my USB to charge his cigarette but I was charging my book. The future is stupid.” Well, you’re going to find that’s kind of how things are now. “Don’t touch the lightswitches to turn off the lights, I have to use my phone to do that!” Cigarettes and books have batteries, lights and thermostats controlled by phones, a wiretap in my room that I’m sure spies on me all the time but every morning and night I say “Hey Google, how are you?” and “Okay Google, I’m going to bed, have a good night.” because I was taught to be polite. The bulbs work great, the yellow function is a little bit lacklustre on these bulbs but the colour choice you get still is amazing. It’s hooked up to my Google Home so I can control them from phone, turn lights off when I’m at work, set alarms with them, have them wake me up at specific times, and so on. I highly recommend them!

    I started out with just wanting to have an IKEA tower light able to be dimmed and then decided to fill it with colored lights. Very glad I did. It soon became a bit of an obsession, where now every light in my apartment is Hue, which is over 50 lights. For my bathroom and office, I didn’t go with colored bulbs. I’d tried colored ones in the bathroom at first but found I never wanted them so I moved those to other rooms. There are fun apps that my niece and nephews love to play with that do light shows (OnSwitch is their favorite). I’ve attached an image I’d put together when I first started playing with them. I combine them with the Philips Hue Tap Switch that I keep by the couch so I can quickly switch the room to presets. I have motion sensors in hallways (because who ever flips the light on then back off at the other end?) and have them set to switch on dimmer at night to find my way to the bathroom without blinding me. I’ve attached some extreme examples but most of the time I just have the colors set to an autumn sunset feel, not quite so dramatic. I like that during the day, you can change the color temperature to match sunlight so your lights match the light from outside, almost like skylights.

    Good lights. I have 8 around the living room and kitchen. Me and the wife have disco-nights where we get the hue-disco app fired up and boogie to bohemian rhapsody turned up LOUD. We live way out in the sticks and have few other entertainment options.
