If I buy a dimmable bulb do i have to buy anything else for it to work? I have a hub, am right in thinking my original light switch would still turn it on and off and I can control brightness via the app?
As long as you have a hive hub then you can control your lights with the app

Exactly that. And if you buy the colour changing bulbs you can alter the colour warmth too.

I would add that the Alexa integration is really good now. Very fast. Very convenient to just say "Alexa bedroom light 40%" and it happen almost before you finish the sentence. For me well worth the £30 for a dot.
50% off a Dot V2 as well - bit of a bargain at £25

I've added a link to the other HUKD post for the echo dot
I was looking at buying these when they came up on the Screwfix offer a few weeks ago but I saw a review that put me off because it seemed pretty fiddly using Hive with a normal wall switch.

One of the main things I want them for is to be able to have them coming on/off on a timer when I'm not at home, but the fitting I had in mind has a 4-bulb cluster, so I'm assuming I would have to use Hive bulbs for the whole fitting. How does this work with the wall switch, as I'm assuming you have to leave the wall switch in the "on" position for Hive to be able to control the lights.

Does this mean that you have to open/toggle the app on the phone each time to regain manual control, and then remember to leave the switch "on" and re-activate Hive when you leave the house?

I'm just trying to get an idea of how it would work in every day use?

In reality it's straight forward...
Leave the light switch in the on position. To turn the lights on either...
Press the switch off then back on again
Turn on in the app
Ask Alexa to turn them on.

To turn them off,
Use the app
Ask alexa to do it.

Just don't turn them off at the switch - if you do, you'll only be able to turn them back on at the switch.
Ordered the echo 5 days on got an email saying no stock will email status next Friday
