Found 8th Mar
What a faff trying to post a deal. Anyway, here goes. 3for2 so £49.98 for 6 bulbs. So that's just over £8 each, or less than £8.50 each, who wants to work it out to the nearest penny.
Couldn't care less whether it's hot, cold, or luke warm, I've just brought them

Have some heat for your faff!
I'm guessing with these you have to remember to leave these switched on all the time when you want to automatically switch them on or do you have to wire them differently with a different switch or does the switch save changing the wiring by leaving them live, but just sending some sort of signal to switch them on and off?

Yes you would have to remember to leave the light switch on so that they are getting power all the time. You would then control the on off or the brightness with the hue controls.

One thing I do wonder about the with these light bulbs is that if you turn the power on and off from the light switch does the bulb retain its previous colour or brightness setting? And does this also apply to the xiaomi ones?

Leave them switched on all the time or remove the switch
Great deal, thanks for posting.
I only need two more bulbs for bayonet fittings, how to justify six...
I am thinking of setting-up Hue for the first time so this seems like a very good price and a great way to expand or get into Hue lighting. You will of course also need a Hue Bridge and looking around Amazon have a Starter Kit which consists of 2 x 8.5W E27 Hue White Bulbs, 1 x Hue Bridge 2.0 for £54.99 (Prime) or £59.99 (Non-Prime).

Does anyone here have any tips for a Hue newbie?

Annoying that it's not mix and match. I want to pick up x2 bayonets and x1 E27 for parents

What?


If you turn it off with a normal light switch it will not give power to the bulb so will not work.
Best faff !!
B22 would suit me better but at that price it’s worth using adaptors! Heat added.
Currys have the white ambience twin pack (£50) on 3 for 2 which works out at £16 per bulb.

Obviously it's double the cost but the white ambience are FAR better than the white and worth the extra in my opinion.
hot faff

Yes, Hive now supports Philips Hue Bridge so you need the bridge as well as the bulbs

Thanks @Stuart_Smith , although I don't need this deal right now, as a fellow Hue users I can see it's pure fire!

They're worth it for the bedroom and the study, for me at least. I used the deal you said about (and don't forget the quid of quidco!)

But for hallways etc? Stick with the plain white and save the money tbh.
