Deal starts at 2.59pm today (05 Feb). 47% off. Current price is £49.87 so I make that a discounted price of £26.43.

It's the B22 Bayonet bulb which doesn't seem to get discounted as frequently as the Edison bulbs. Amazon mobile app says it's Prime customers only, but desktop says Early Access which might mean it will be opened to non Prime customers after a period of time. It doesn't say whether only 1 or multiple permitted, often it's just 1.

Best way to find it is to go to 'Today's Deals' then filter on 'Department: Lighting' and then scroll down.

This is my first post so go easy on me! Been using hotukdeals app for a few months now and it's been very useful to me, so this is me paying back to the community.

Agreed. Hot for the price tho. Got these after Xmas on the last deal like this. some of the colours are very iffy. pinks/reds/orange are not bad but blue/green are terrible.

Thanks for pointing that out. I haven't jumped aboard the Hue bandwagon yet, but I'm itching to! I think the blues/greens are the colours addressed with the new bulbs? I understand they come with a new cyan coloured LED.

Good find.

Amazon usually discount a few Hue items at the same time but sadly no such luck today

Yes, not Richer Colours, should have put that in the post. Have the B22 Richer Colours ever received a significant discount?

I'm looking to purchase for secondary rooms (Hall/Landing) where Richer Colours less important and I was thinking of getting the ambient whites. With these, at night I can do 1% red which is darker than 1% white.

The richer colours are quite new, where as these are discontinued, hence the discount I imagine.

Nice - how do you know these are not the richer colours versions?

Great - thanks for the lowdown!

All the ones from Argos have the silver base on the website, yet you get richer colours. Could it be that Amazon have just not updated the pictures?

The part number on the Amazon site 8718696461754 relates to the 1st gen bulbs, richer colour part number is 8718696593073

Just order and if not richer colours send back, it's not going to cost you anything to do so.

Agreed. I bought from Argos using the previous HOME25 and got richer colours despite Argos site saying it was old gen. Collect in store then you can check before you take home. The front of Richer Colours box has a small Richer Colours logo top right.

Just wondering what this is for. Am I right in thinking it would let me sit on the sofa and turn a light on rather than having to go through all the faff of getting up and doing it?

yes, but you would need a hue hub also.
#26
Shame not the recent one.

Minor semi-related quibble, the switches, why don't they come with a backplate the same size as a standard light switch? So annoying having to replaster the holes in walls.

Picked up 2 bayonet (£29.99) and 1 Edison (£29) richer colours before Christmas.

Best buy is the starter with hub, dimmer and 2 white ambience bulbs via Argos deal. After the novelty it's the white settings you'll use most and no-one wants to search for a phone to turn a light on.

Handy for dimming tho' or changing the ambiance when watching a film.

I went for the v1 hub with 2 white bulbs for £36:

differences with v2 hue discussed here:

I already had an Amazon dot and its great using voice activation to switch on/off. Plus you can get packs of 2 bulb adapters for £1 at Ikea to convert screw type to bayonette type

Thanks I also have the dot hence why im looking for this set up, can you use these in lamps or just main lights?

I got the starter park yesterday with striplights. However I need about 30 spots and I'm a bit reluctant to pay £50 a pop for colour or £25 each for white. Is there any other brand that I can use that will link to the Philips hue bridge?

Don't know if many people who don't have a phone either on them or within grabbing distance, were you around during the blitz :p

You do know you can also control via Amazon echo, harmony remote or a myriad of other smart home devices.

I mentioned it in previous threads so thought I'd add it here - if you're thinking of getting coloured/ambience bulbs/strips down the line then Alexa cannot natively control 'scenes' via voice via a V1 hub. Needs to be a V2 hub unless you don't mind installing 3rd party apps to be a go between on a V1 hub setup.
