I love technology and have hive and sonos in my home...but i'm struggling to see why i would want to have smart bulbs to be honest

^ A couple of things off the top of my head, turning lights on, or adjusting brightness / colour with your voice, turning lights on or off based on your proximity (geo-fencing).

I've got a couple of Hue lamps but thinking I'll check out Asda for some "standard" bulbs if they're only £7.

great bit of kit, as we drive upto our home lights turn on as we get close, also can set it up for the kids, so when they go to sleep the lights fade as they like to have lights on, then they slowly come on in the morning over a 30 min timeframe to wake kids up. Also good when im lazy and cant be bothered to get off the sofa to dim the lights, can do it on phone :p The bulbs last approx 5 years according to packaging and low energy so even those to use as normal bulbs are a bit of a bargain at £7

What version / gen is the hub?

I have it to turn lights on/off while away.
The kids just enjoy changing the colours in their room.
Hot.

Why are there no Asdas near me?!?

Would the OP be able to confirm if this was at a regular super market or an Asda Home? many thanks.

Good price considering the hub on its own is £50. Feels like a bit of a price adjustment due to recent competition from the likes of IKEA (although not as functionally rich as the Philips solution). :)

Love my hue bulbs for automation, but I prefer them in lamps. For ceiling lights my family still use the wall switch so that over rides hue and then hue becomes pointless!
But my front room lamps come on automatically when I'm near my front door as it detects my phone in close region (geo fencing) and my bedroom lamp gradually wakes me up by fading in over a 30 minute period - great in the winter it simulates sunrise.
And all my lamps fade in the evening to provide a relaxing light. And then they all turn off at 12:30am in case I've accidentally left any on.
So there are many uses, these are just mine.
I'm going to add a motion sensor so a "soft" light comes on near the bathroom when my 5 year old wakes up in the night and ultimately I'm going to get a Philips Ambilight TV so the lights in my room Sync with the TV for added effect in movies etc :)

Or buy 3 colour bulbs PLUS a bridge for £119 - today only on Amazon. If you need a bridge anyway its only working out £25 ish per bulb for colour and white ambience.

Wow! I guess the £7 is just for white then!
Want to get a kit to sync with my ambilight TV but I suppose I'd need some colour bulbs to match up with the ambilight colours.

Anybody found these in Leicester?

These are great for when you are away on holiday or for 2nd homes. I have this set up on a few key lights. Not because Im into technology far from it - I just use when working away from home. I have the older version which does not connect to Alexa, but when Im home I turn on and off myself. Great find.

see post #13 on how to get colour bulbs a lot less than £50 !
#23
Would these hubs work with google home? Or does it also depend on what generation they are?

Many reasons once you get into it, depending on you.

You can turn all the lights off in the house at night with one click, no need to visit 10 switches.

You can set the porch light to go off at 11 pm.

you can set mood lighting to come on in the morning, so basically you never have to touch it for the rest of your life.

You can set the kids bedroom lights to go off at 8.30 am on weekdays, as they ALWAYS leave their lights on before school.

You may well have different uses :)

I swear we've got the most rubbish Asda here in cambridge. Saw this post earlier, stopped at Asda on way home. Zilch. No philips in stock here.
#26
I suppose the main challenge is to find Asda store with stock. Checked number of big ones in Warwickshire and Coventry are - no luck. And not available online.
#27
Milton Keynes now sold out. Picked up the last one.

I got colour bulbs and I have seen little use of the colour so wish I had just got white bulbs now. Oh well I suppose I do use it when gaming :D

thanks for the post. I got a couple of discount bulbs in Wigan.

Generation 2 bulbs (which these are) work fine with my Google home. I think Generation 1 bulbs do too, but Generation 1 don't work with Apple Home Kit

Have one on the landing. Mood lighting set for late in the evening through to the morning so you don't fully wake up when popping to the loo. Use with a motion sensor so no more children leaving the lights on in the middle of the night

Wow truly this is the Emperor's New Clothes.

The people trying to justify paying the money they are doing to buy this crap are deluding themselves.

Its not technology, its not convenience its not some new super duper must have household appliance. Its an expensive lightbulb kit for people with more money than sense.

Or perhaps you're too old or too poor, or too ignorant to see why people like them.

Each to their own, these are half price and so a great deal, which is the whole point of this site, not for you to leave comments on things you don't understand.

We have an Asda home near us and it is dire. I expect long term Wallmart will sell off Asda. The business is tired!

I was once ignorant like you on this topic, thinking why would someone pay so much for bulbs... (although didn't post as hadn't fully researched it). I then bought Amazon Echo and got some connected plugs. I have emerged from the dark and have quite literally seen the light!

I promise you'll understand if you ever invest and in 10-15 years people will wonder what lurch switches were...
