Brilliant price, if you’ve been on this site any time since Black Friday you’ll know what these are, but just in case...

Great price indeed mate.

I got one myself, with a few Yeelights already en route from China.

Have they fixed it so that you can change colour by voice using Alexa? Read that you can only switch it on and off by Alexa, but can only change colour using the app.

Reagrdless of that, it's a good price!

Any benefit of buying this over using yeelight bulbs which is at times available for one third price

Brightness the main one, the yeelight bulbs currently are only 600 lumens, these are 806.

Also, the yeelights can be controlled by alexa, phone etc but as they don't have a hub they lack some other smart functions/automation

Great answer

I believe the Yeelights are also significantly bigger than the Hive ones given they have tech on the bulb itself.

I’ll be able to tell you soon hopefully, got two Yeelights coming for myself too.

I'm confused, would someone be kind enough to answer a quick question for me please?
I have the Echo Plus, the one with the built in smart hub. Would I require an additional 'hive' smart hub to use voice control with this?

Looking at the info on Amazon it appears to be that way.

Any information regarding this would be appreciated.

Correct, you require a separate hive hub to use this bulb.

Currently out of stock but voted hot.

You need the Hive Hub to be able to have Hive bulbs, heating, plugs, sensors etc in your home.

I'll buy your Yeelight off you if you don't want it

What fittings are available for B22? I am referring to something like downlights used for GU10 bulbs - so it can go in ceiling

I ordered this a few days ago when it was out of stock. Now in stock but still no dispatch date. I think amazon are struggling to get deliveries out.
