Looked at these yesterday, seems a decent price to me for 2 lights and the hub so not sure why its cold.
#2
Heat from me. Ordered! Thanks OP!
#3
can you turn them off with your phones, does anyone know? cheers
#4
This is an absolute bargain.
If you don't like them, so be it. If you do then this is as good a bargain as you will get. A single Bloom is £55+ on Amazon right now. Get in quick before all the ebay hawkers do.

Super hot. Well done O.P.

P.S the bridge apparently works with any legacy gen3 Iris/Bloom/Aura (like I have) SWEET!

I have bought 4 sets of these about 4 weeks ago. They do indeed come with the hub, which I have been selling on eBay for £65. They are a nice addition to the Hue system. The box connects by cat5 tk your router and then you use the app on your phone to control them. When they loose power and then gain power they turn on so you can use them with a remote control switch. Important to note that these DON'T DO the bright daylight and sunshine spectrum the normal Hue bulbs do. These just work with the colours. However you can still set it to white or blue etc. Any questions just let me know. :)

Great spot OP.
Just bought a set, been looking at the bloom for some time to compliment the other Hue lights in the house.
Tried to buy two sets so I had one for each bedroom but Amazon have purchase limit set to one per customer (No doubt to stop them being bought and put straight on eBay).

You could always create another Amazon account if you are in need of another set :)

This type of lighting vs RGB LED strip lighting pros and cons?
#9
Hi, I have the Hue LED Strips too, they are a great effect under the kitchen units.
#10
If it came with the two remotes as well it'd be in for this :) I want a couple more of the light remotes and don't want to pay 50 for the tap.

I love the ones I have for the remote functions, timing ifttt functions. It's not a cheap way of doing it though compared to the light strips you are talking about. If you don't need the control them the cheaper options are good but these are great fun.

Couldn't resist anymore & with a £10 voucher burning a hole I've bought.
#13
Quick question for those in the know - since this set comes with a bridge, can I now just go and buy individual hue bulbs, or even some hue lux bulbs and control them all in the same way? I don't need a different bridge for anything outside of the bloom range?

Hi.
From my understanding it's the same bridge for all the family hue range.
So this should work.
#15
Seriously hot. Thank you op.
I've been looking for a bloom for a while and not seen one under £55 so 2 for £72 is a steal.
#16
Thanks OP
#17
Great price, hot.
#18
Was about to buy this until i realised the bloom is only 120 lumens.

I have the Iris which is 210 lumens and I would't want anything duller than that. :(

Just got it for £67 with NUS discount!
steal!!

Thanks been after one of these sets for ages and this is a bargain!
#23
Fantastic, thanks. My wife bought me the hue bulbs starter kit for Christmas as a surprise, so these will complement it just nicely and I can sell the extra hub on.

Yes indeed, that's what they are designed for really. There's apps for Android, Apple and even a sprinkling on the Windows Store.
#26
Does anyone know if the bridge works with Gen 2. Googled it and can't find anything.
#27
Just purchased thanks... Not sure I need them or even want them but hey ho!

Does anyone tried the Lifx bulbs ? How are they compared to Hue ?
#30
I got one for £71.33 and picked up the other used (very good) for £60 which was also coming from amazon!
Used my bespoke vouchers too, so by the time I sell my spare Bridge on eBay this will have cost me about £30 for a bridge and 4 blooms!

For the second comparison you did, from what I can see the bulbs are different...the first one changes colour whereas the second cheaper one is white only

If you click on the 2nd link, and change it from Single bulb to starter kit, it changes to the first link (£79.99 Philips hue lux Personal Wireless Lighting Starter Kit). They are the same item. I mean they give you the model name of the bulb in the title heading of the item name.

But you seem to be right, reading from the reviews, but the naming of everything is really poor. Give it a different model name at least!

Controllable from the app through the bridge?
#37
Thanks op have been looking out for some of these. And thanks derek for the heads up re white bulbs, got a couple of those too. SO EXCITED.
#38
Anyone who has a Hue kit,
Do you control each light individually from the app?
#39
Does anyone know how to get around the fact that these are "paired" with the bridge. Already have a bridge coming...

Apparently you can according to the reviews.
