Exactly my question.
From what I understand, the ambience bulbs allow for a wider range of white colours.

Exactly my question.


EAN looks different - only thing I can see is that the "ambiance" lights might let you set the 'type' of white light you want, I assume in addition to being dimmable?

The OP’s are Hue Ambient, which means you can change the ‘tone’ of the bulb (warm orangey to blueish fluorescent), as well as dim/brighten. The JL ones just dim/brighten. We have the ambient and you can make quite a difference to the feel of a room. Hope that helps.

Always go for the ambient lights if you can, like GaiusB said having the ability to change the warmth of the whites can completely change the ambience of a room. Personally I have the colour lights in every room for the best of both worlds.
Can't add to basket, also the picture shows the bulbs labeled white with colour but the description mentions only variations of white light??? Are they colour or not?

Amazon we’re doing 2 for 3 recently, so bundled with the motion sensor would have cost you ~ £90 for just 3 bulbs. This works out to be a good deal! Heat added
Same as cheaper White bulbs but with a few more types of White. Not worth it. Either get cheap White bulbs or get colour for this price without motion sensor.

I've never seen a 2 pack of white ambiance bulbs for £25 before, only the normal white ones.

Yes what I said and someone else posted link to them.

I love it, every time I do a hue deal, it get voted cold because people thinks these are overpriced or they have seen them cheaper months ago.
£100 for 2 light bulbs what a joke.
Sorry did not see came with motion sensor.

£100 for 2 light bulbs what a joke.


It’s for 4 plus the motion sensor
A normal price (achievable most of the time) would be £40 per twin pack of white ambiance bulbs and £30 for a motion sensor. So if you happened to need 4 of these bulbs and a motion sensor it would save you £10.

With white vs colour temp vs full colour personally it depends which room it's for. The colour is a bit of a gimmick, I have them in the lounge more as a bit of a laugh, but also useful for kids birthdays. Will probably put more in the playroom. In the hall and landing I use plain whites. Other rooms like dining and bedrooms area mostly colour temperature. But plain white is by far the most cost effective, especially if you go the IKEA route or buy twin packs on 3 for 2.

These are not colour bulbs.

True. You keep learning them ;-)
Hot from me. These bulbs are £30 individually and the PIR is normally £35.

I can't see the point of the normal warm white only bulbs. People need to see the light.
This is a good deal.

It's also a good example of what's wrong with this site. You shouldn't be able to vote a deal cold unless you're able to prove it can be bought cheaper elsewhere.

By the same argument, you shouldn't be able to vote hot unless you can prove it cannot be bought cheaper elsewhere. That would just mean no voting at all.

Not applicable in this case, but you sometimes see deals which are not poor because of the price, but due to other factors - including the quality of the product.

With ambience you have an extra 8 different light scenes

Lots of people asking the difference between these and the other hue bulbs

Hue white bulbs - the cheapest in the range are perfectly good bulbs, they dim, but do not offer different temperatures of white, Useful in hallways, landings etc.

Hue white ambience (i.e. these on offer) are the same as above but also allow for different colour temperatures. Useful for bright blue whites when wanting to read a book etc, and can also be changed to a soft white light, ideal for relaxing. The best use for this type of bulb is probably bedrooms. I use mine in a stepped brightness mode so over the course of half an hour it goes from off, to a bright warm white, to simulate sun rise in the winter months. My alarm goes off at the end of the half hour and I feel better than if I woke up in darkness

Hue colour and white ambience - as above but with millions of colour ranges. Can still dim and still operate in the warm and bright white modes. Of course if money is no issue you might have these in all rooms but otherwise the best use is in the living areas, with different colours suited to things like activities with the kids, movies etc. Kids love oranges and greens near halloween, reds and greens at Christmas etc.
Cold for me i'm afraid, I got 2xblubs and bridge for 49.99 from AO.com 2 weeks ago
