Yes and no. They do, but you need the Hive Hub. The bulbs talk to the hub and Alexa talks to the hub

This was the answer to the question I was about to ask. Thanks for that.

Yes - you need to add the Hive skill to echo first.

Good price. Hue man myself with about 20 bulbs.

The lifx ones work with alexa and don't require a hub, don't know how good they are compared to the hue, but if you're only after 1 or 2 bulbs probably more cost effective

Does anyone know if they can be dimmed via a wall switch as well as the app?

Yes they can. But it is not recommended. Once you have dimmed them from the switch it overrides hive - you can still dim them further through hive or turn them off - but you cannot turn them up higher than the dimmer switch has set them to.

I go one even better. I say "switch off lights", and then I switch them off. I'm sure it will catch on but I realise true innovation like this takes time to proliferate. I also don't need my anything to talk to my anything else.

Well the cheap 1s are a pound dearer but the ones you should buy are cheaper at amazon if only by a penny, tuneable and colour, I dont like warm white bulbs but depends on your preference.

One of the most useful features of these lights is the ability to set timers, great for winter saves you coming home to dark hall way. Also if on holiday can set them to turn on and off to look like someones home. Not all about just being lazy / talking to them. I just have them in my lounge and hallway, although is nice to dim from the sofa when movie starts!

I fitted these led with Pir sensors in hall and landing, do the same as avoid coming in to dark hall, comes on as soon as open door and only cost £4.64 each

I also have yeelights in the bedrooms which can set schedules and also scenes like sunset sunrise, movie etc too on the colour ones
Works with ok Google using tasker though I just use the app to be honest, and can also work with Alexa indirectly, though they are working on a skills for it too, a lot cheaper than hive, nest and hue

This is for a single bulb? Your picture and reference to bulbs makes it sound as if it's a twin pack.

Also all the hive stuff is reduced at Maplin.
Edited by: "welshblob" 20th Dec 2016

This the the cheapest Hive bulb deal so far. I bought 3 recently from argos, and rate them highly.

Unfortunately you cant group them yet in the Hive app.

Just noticed you get a free £5 voucher if you spend over £10 too

If you click n collect

Timer settings work as a solid argument yeah. I was just referring to all the people falling for the silly gimmick that is Echo. There is practicality, as you've outlined, and there is paying over £100 so you can ask something to do something that by the time you've finished asking you could have just flicked a bloody switch. (_;)

Echo with raspberry pi and fauxmo. Can do some amazing stuff with a relay some batteries and wires. I have an echo and 4 dots, couldn't live without them.
