(one use only)
£14.99 for lux (standard colour) (i.e. £44.97 for 4) (£11.24 each)
£44.11 for hue (multicolour) (£132.33 for 4) (£33.08 each)
not as good as the lightning deal (£24.99) a few weeks ago, but that was limited both in stock and items per person
supposedly there's a new range out but the savings on these make them more attractive to me than the minor refinements in the full priced new models

an option for those new to the system:
the starter pack with bridge and 2 white bulbs and 3 hue (multicoloured) bulbs for £138.21 amazon.co.uk/Phi…TLC

I bought four of the lux ones a couple of days ago. According to reviews of the new bulbs, the new multicolour + white ones aren't any different to the existing bulbs.
Might be a bit of a daft question but do these do white light effectively?
yes there alot brighter then I expected more then then my old filament bulbs I'm so mad I'm.skint I really need to buy these now but I can't afford em and its only gonna cost me more down the line anyone wanna lend me £130
The new bulbs (the colour ones anyway) are brighter... now at 800lm.

Unsure about the difference between the Lux (old model) and the Hue White (new model), other than the shape and size.

This sale is obviously to push the old stock, but these will do for my bedside lamps etc... Leaves me needing/wanting a just ONE of the new colour bulbs to be fully Hue'd.


####

Philips is also delivering a much-requested revamp to the Hue bulbs. The original color-changing A19 Hue Color will now be 800 lumens, not 600, while the Hue White - the renamed Hue Lux - will also deliver 800 lumens, up from 750.

Been waiting for a good deal cheers op!
I really fancy these, but I'm going to wait and hope for a black Friday deal...
How much for 4 bulbs!

You cannot be serious........ do these do anything other than give out light, in order to help me understand why 4 lightbulbs are a 'bargain' at one hundred and thirty two pounds ? Sounds like a deal from Peckham's favourite wide boy to me.
They're "toys", for sure. But they do much more than just light, but the much more is a nicety, not an essential.

Essential for a bulb, is to light the room when the switch is pressed.

Some of the niceties with the Hue include;

Turning on when you're about to arrive home.
Turning off when you leave the house.
Remote control from afar.
Random illumination to simulate house presence.
Sync with music and disco.
Ambilight.
Scenes (watch DVD, movie starts, lights dim etc)


Most of mine are hooked up with Motion Controllers and will operate automatically when it gets dark outside...

Very much boys toys, but at just over £10 each, very affordable. Don't forget the Bridge though.

In 10 years these/IoT will be the norm. Those buying/doing now are just ahead of the pack.

Yes they do give out more than "just give out light" they give out 16 million shades of light, can be part of a fully automated system, security lighting when away from home and even work as disco lights responding to music with the right app. I have 8 set up in my living room alone creating a calm warm environment that I can change in an instant to whatever I need em to emit.

More likely to be a lightning deal over Xmas, got 2 starter kits (bloom then strips) that were just £79.99 each last Xmas.
Don't get me wrong. I'd be totally all over this if I feel my living room would benefit from it, and could justify the invention. Light has such a profound effect on mood and well-being.

Its a general lighting sale not just on Hue lights

Get a grip people.
Difference on new set is primarily the bridge which now has HomeKit for Siri control.
Pretty cool but in all honesty I'd end up with me dinner all down me ....
Pretty damn cheap I remember buying 3 for £250
These are lovely! Will wait a little longer for the price to come down abit.
say what 132quid Jesus, Amazon is full with the remote ones from 15 quid or so for 1

Overpriced tech

No it isn't, pricey yes - overpriced? Nah.
Im a sucker for led mood lighting. Have 5 RGB 5050 strips throughout the house and multiple RGB GU10 spots.
These just dont appeal to me. The extra cost for a connected bulb just dosent seem justified. Id rather save £100 and use a remote.
Who'd
Who'd have thought snobbery would extend to light bulbs!!!
Can these be controlled WITHOUT the bridge? Can they they be used with the Samsung SmartThings hub, for example?

Some people like cool lighting and some just want a bulb... It's not snobbery it's just what your into. I don't spend 100 quid down the pub at the weekend but I do own some hue bulbs because I think they are fun and like the remote aspects. They actually save me money on electricity as the missus likes to leave a light on for when she gets home in winter with these last year I timed then on (and off as she forgets). Horses for courses though.
My house is fully LED and oust any see what these would add to it.
Energy savings wouldn't justify the additional cost over what I have already and them being connected just doesn't add up.
Still voted hot for price but not for me, yet.
Just checked on the wireless dimming kit pre order and the code works on them too just FYI
On the switch anyway!
I keep meaning to look into IoT, home automation, lighting, power, heating control, security etc, but always get bogged down with the different brands, and compatibility issues.

I don't rent to start investing in a system, then find it won't talk to something else I'm interested in adding, or end up with two separate setups that won't talk to each other.

I'm not sure I'm willing to be an early (or middle) adopter on this stuff before it becomes standardised and interoperable...

Any compelling arguments to sway someone like me? I know there's some cool stuff around.

Thanks very much for this, hadn't noticed. Just got Amazon to switch out one of the bulbs I'd bought for the dimmer, it's got decent reviews.
I don't own these, but I do have a couple of items from Philips Hue range. They're great. They're expensive. But if you've got a nice home, good quality mood, accent and "even" lighting makes a huge difference.

Heat added.

It's worth reading through the comments. A lot of the smart home hubs support multiple standards i.e. hue, wemo and z-wave so it can be possible to mix and match your products.
These are no use for me, I'm using lifx.

Thanks, much appreciated, I'll have a read through and see what makes sense.

I'm probably being stupid but how do I get this price? Cheapest I can get is £144.68.

Nope, you have to have a bridge in all cases.
I guess self-selecting wealth redistribution is not a bad thing so long as some of this asking-price ends up with people who really need the extra income and are worlds away from being able to spend this amount of money on light-bulbs.
