Setup is extremely simple. Just screw in bulb to desired light fixture. Plug in the included hub to a power supply and to an Ethernet connection. Download and Open the app. Sign up (or sign in if you already have a Hue account). Click setup/connect and press the big button on the hub and wait for updates to download if any. Then, setup your Hue device names, group them into rooms - as they are in your own home, and any actions you'd like to occur automatically such as turn off all lights as soon as you leave your home with your connected smartphone. You can even connect other connected smart home products from other companies/brands to interact with one another and perform other automatic actions.
As for the product itself, I was really surprised at how bright the Hue bulbs included in this starter kit can get. They get just as bright as regular (non-smart) light bulbs. They also produce a really nice warm glow. Bulbs and the hub are constructed really well. It doesn't look or feel cheap.
I don't seem to find any lag time from when I turn off/on or dim the lights in any way from my smartphone. The app, hub and the bulbs themselves have a quick and instant response between one another from any actions I perform on the app or any other app from the "friends of Hue" (participating companies/brands smart home devices that can connect and interact with Hue).
I loved Hue and everything it can do and how it interacts with all of my other connected smart home devices (like my Google Home, Nest Security Cameras, Nest Thermostat, Nest Protect, Ring Doorbell Pro, etc.) that I purchased 25 more of just the Hue White A19 light bulbs themselves (which you can purchase on their own).
I really recommend this product (and others I've mentioned above) if your looking for a simple way to "smart" your home or just want the added convenience of making sure all your lights are off/on when ur not nearby ur home.
The main downside is that even though it states the range is 40-80 ft, if there are walls involved, it could easily be less than 20 ft which I have discovered is very true and I live in a 500 sq/ft 1br Condo but I will still need to buy another hub to put lights in the bedroom which is kind of a pain and really shouldn’t be the case. The lesser but still annoying downside is if you want them to be controlled with Siri then you have to use HomeKit which is buggy. Sometimes it likes the hue bulbs and sometimes they dont work at all. Phillips recommends buying an Apple TV to remedy this which again is dumb.
All told though these new bulbs which aren’t colourful ARE bright enough to use in everyday situations and have been pretty decent. I’m not sure why people buy the coloured bulbs at all but this, for the price is a good way to find out if smart lighting is for you.
Replaced standard philips led bulbs and these are a bit brighter and have a large range of dimming.
You cannot go wrong with this package and an Amazon Echo Dot and use her to control the lights.
Really love automating my lights and would never go back.
Lights paired very easily and have been working flawlessly with no hiccups for almost a month so far.
- ultra custom light colour and intensity
- no bulk / multi-pack options
- disparity between "generations" of bulbs. a certain setting for gen1 doesn't look the same on gen2. you can't just apply a configuration to an entire room of mixed bulbs, such as a kitchen with spot lights over the sink and typical lights above the table. you need to configure each generation separately and save that profile.
- the stock app is crap. you'll probably to want to spend a few bucks to buy an app from a third party developer to get the most out of these lights.
- the bridge doesn't ensure a state. several times i've changed a setting for a room and had it only apply to some of the lights. i'll have to sit there and apply it multiple times for it to work. third party apps seem to help with this.
I'll be jumping to something else whenever the industry manages to perfect this technology.
The bulbs are advertised as 2700k but the light they produce seems to me to have a slightly richer orange tint to it than a typical incandescent bulb and other bulbs I have labeled 2700k. It is a shame that hue does not offer any daylight bulbs(6500k) without doubling the price per bulb for a white ambience bulb that ranges from 2000k to 6500k.The app marks some benefits of daylight lights such as better for waking you up in the morning so it seems like they may not be planning on releasing a just daylight bulb in order to get people who want that to pay more.
