Usually £14.99. I've been using these for about 2 weeks now and they work great. Just ordered a couple more so Alexa can earn her keep. Read More

I take it you need the bridge for these to work?
#2
You do I'm afraid. Got mine on the Ocado/ Groupon offer a few weeks back. I've heard they usually come on offer Black Friday.

Will keep an eye out. Cheers.

Anyone knows, will this work with Osram Lightify bridge?
#5
What's a bridge? how is it setup?
#6
well the bulbs will work without a hue bridge but you won't be able to dim them or anything, so they would basically just be on a default setting.
#7
LIFX.

Better and bridgeless. Just wait for offers.

Why on earth haven't they release a Hue light switch?

Maybe they're afraid they'd make less money from the bulbs?

I have 8 'dumb' LED GU10s in the kitchen that I'd love to be able to automate with Alexa and a Hue motion sensor if a switch became available, but I'm not going to spend £200 replacing all the bulbs.

If you have a lot of these bulbs, aren't you still better with hue, aren't they more stable etc?
BTW, have way too many of the hues, but am yet to try LIFX

I'm in the same boat, would rather replace switches in various rooms than loads of bulbs, I've had a look and cant seem to even find a smart light switch.

They control a Hue light.. what i mean is a light switch that adds the smart functionality.. So i could have all 6 kitchen spot lights controllable..

The first item can control multiple lights(the second quite possibly can too, mine is due next month). What are you aiming to do?
#15
Can I use harmony companion hub for this. Or do I need an Phillips hub
#16
is a good deal for these. I much prefer the white ambiance ones which can change the shade (temperature) of white as well as the brightness. Worth hanging on until black Friday if you want to get started with hue.

Neither of these will control standard lights.

What I'm saying is Hive or Hue or whoever should sell smart light switches that connect to your existing lighting circuits, allowing you to control multiple standard lights (such as in a kitchen) etc..

The closest I've found to what I want are the Glass switches by wifiplug.co.uk but that would be using Echo and not the Hue system, and therefore no motion sensor control.

Lutron and Futronix amongst others can do that though Hue system is likely to be cheaper and more flexible. The glass switches noted above also require a neutral to operate (like most smart switches) though information regarding their switching abilities is limited (many smart switches dislike LED loads).

Yes someone should do this 'on the cheap', i.e. less than a Rako/Lutron/Control4 system. I'm sure it will happen in the pretty near future.
e.g. Belkin sell a WeMo one in the states, but not (afaik) here

Are these the type you can adjust between warm white and daylight whites, if not has anyone seen that sort of bulb cheap anywhere?

Something like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fibaro-FGD-212-250-Universal-Dimmer/dp/B012X0I8JY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1477300598&sr=8-1&keywords=fibaro+dimmer and the Samsung SmartThings Hub can do what you're after.

They do non-dimmer relays too.

Granted it will cost £150 to get one a hub, but it's £50 per set of bulbs thereafter.

I've got the colour ambient ones and have been looking for the deals on white ones (don't need them urgently so why not save) for my lamp. Great find OP :)
