I may be wrong, but I think this was posted only once, for a cheaper price but it was with the Dot3 without the clock. Not sure if is worth to pay £13 more to have the clock, but in the same time if you want a clock in the bedroom, this may be an option.

In stock on December 13th
Voted hot, I think this is a decent deal. £35 for the Echo clock on its own and this is a Black Friday deal, £5 per bulb is quite good, especially for a Hue bulb.

Agreed. Even though the Echo Dot *retails* at £35, it's never really that price for long without being bundled with bulbs + other compatible products. Still a good deal though. Heat.

Am I right in thinking these newer bulbs will work with just an Echo Dot 2nd Gen, without needing a separate hue hub? (thinking of giving them to someone else, as I'm all hued up!)

This is correct. as long as they are attached to an existing Hub (up to 50 bulbs) should be fine.

Confusing. So do they need a hub or not?

I thought not from the description:
"Works with all Echo smart speakers/displays and Google Nest devices for hands-free voice control (Philips Hue Bridge (sold separately) is required for Echo 1st Gen and Echo Dot 1st Gen)."

Will work without the bridge as long as you are in Bluetooth range

As mentioned will workout without the bridge as a normal standard bulb. I know that the bridge makes things much easier. Hope this does help somewhat.

No, that doesn't help. The description suggests you can control it with nearly all echo devices without a bridge. Can anyone actually confirm?
You can control up to 5 bulbs without a hub.
One point to note. Yesterday evening, Amazon were saying that stock was due in on 22 December, so no good for Xmas presents. Argos have the same bundle price as Amazon and have them in stock, though they are running low on stock of the bulbs. It may be worth checking price promise with currys to see if they will match the bundle price.

Clear as mud now captain!
Assuming these are the bog standard white ones (e.g. not the white ambiance where you can change the colour temp of the bulb)..

Anyone know if they're the warm white or cold white ones?
Fairly certain they’re the bog standard white bulbs....

Nope. You can control up to 10 of these Philips Hue bulbs without a Philips Hue bridge/hub by using the Philips Bluetooth app. They will also link to more recent Alexa and Google devices for easy voice control. The only issue with bluetooth control is that it's limited to a maximum connection range of about 10 metres so if you use the app, you can only control bulbs that are within that range of your mobile phone.

So confusing. I don't want to use an app - I want to use the Alexa devices to control them - do I need a Hub?
So with no Hue HUb these cannot be controlled via alexa so that you can control them whiklst you are out of the house? If only within bluetooth range that's pretty limited?
OOS 'till 28 Dec apparently

It is somewhat confusing. And I agree with the 10. The Hue table says ; (max. No. Of lights 10)

However the description on amazon says ‘2 choices for easy smart lighting: get started with smart lighting using Hue Smart bulbs and your Echo device. This setup supports up to 5 Hue Bluetooth-compatible smart bulbs. Add the Hue Hub for comprehensive smart home lighting (up to 50 light points), with increased range and bonus features.’

I’ve got a hub so unable to personally test. The rest of the amazon description is pretty clear about using Alexa etc to control the Bluetooth bulbs.

I set mine up using the Alexa app, but once that is done, you can control up to five bulbs using voice commands to your Alexa device(s) as long as the bulb and device are in bluetooth range of each other. My Alexa app is switched off on my phone. I haven't looked into the Hue app.
The bulbs are definitely "warm white" and 806 lumens.
I rang Currys yesterday and got them to price match the Dot with clock and twin pack of bulbs. They still have them in for next day delivery, but the offer ends on 2/12. I used Argos for the price match

You don't need a Philips Hue hub to get these to work with Alexa and you don't need to use the Philips Bluetooth app to control them if you have an Alexa device like the Echo Dot in this deal, so the limited range of bluetooth is only an issue when you want to use the Philips bluetooth app to control them.

Not sure what you have tried so far but from what I can gather from the Alexa app, if the bulbs are not automatically shown in the Alexa 'devices' list after you have fitted them and switched them on, you can try adding and connecting them manually. From the Alexa app home page, tap on the 3 small bars in the top left hand corner to bring up a list of options. Tap on the 'Add Device' option. It will ask 'What type of device are you setting up?' Tap on the the 'Philips Hue' icon, then confirm that your Philips Hue light is bluetooth enabled. Make sure the light bulb is within 30 feet of the echo dot and activate pairing mode by switching the bulb off and on, then tap the 'Discover devices' option or just ask Alexa to discover devices verbally via your echo dot. Hopefully, the bulbs will appear in the devices list so you can then control them by voice command.

The Alexa app also says that if you install the Philips Hue bluetooth app on your mobile and connect the bulbs to that first, you can instead follow the instructions in the Philips app's settings menu for 'voice assistants'.

Hope that helps. Good luck.

Yeah I've tried all of these but alexa can't discover them I have no idea what I've done or doing wrong but I'm having a total nightmare with lol. Think I'll just invest in a hue hub
Has anybody physically linked the bluetooth bulbs to Alexa, my echo dot 3rd gen can't discover the bulbs and the app says to enable smart home skills but you can't use the Phillip's hue skill without a hub. I've linked my TV to alexa easily but these bulbs are a nightmare I'm pretty sure it's not me being thick. Someone please help
