can these be used on there own?

Yes ; but u ll only get one colour; no point spending that much if you don't use a bride and app to control them!

I've seen other lightbulbs that don't need a bridge though, such as the Lifx ones?

Yes- they are Bluetooth based; nowhere near as good as these! My advice DONT BUY- u ll get hooked till you be replaced all bulbs in house! Can end of being a costly hobby!

Lifx r wifi based n don't require a hub as opposed to Philips hue

Someone on here warned me how addictive these can be.... I thought I'd just try one, after all it's just once right but as per many addictions that one led to more. Avoid unless your willing up end up spending silly money replacing most of your bulbs heat added

Wait, so these bulbs can't be controlled via an app? You need a hub?

Just got the bridge from Amazon Warehouse deals (like new) with the 20% off, these will do nicely. Tks

Thanks I can add my final room to my Hue setup. Cheers

Also bayonet fitting at same price which is unusual..... Must resist..... Hot

Bought thanks OP. Can you only buy one bulb at the deal price?

Looks that way, though I guess you could just buy one of each fitting and an adapter.

E27 are the same price.

Can we NOT do an explanation of Hue and other smart home products and concepts every time one of these is posted?

Top tip: if you want to know about hubs and bridges and wifi and z-wave (not Bluetooth) try a home automation site, not a deal site.

You don't get food and drink deals posted full of comments about "Can I eat this? Will it make me fat?".

Luckily I have a small flat and all my bulbs are now Hue. But then... there's so much space for light strips, and mood lights, and...

​Who died and made you King??

Hmmmmm how about every time we come here to talk about it and where the deals are cheapest, we "in the know" have to explain to a bunch of lazy novices apparently without google just what it is that's on offer, somewhat distracting from the more useful deal-related chat........

Not everyone gets their news at the same time you do. I hope for the sake of your greying temples that you haven't had to deal with the 720p v 1080p viewing distance discussion TV threads. There wouldn't be enough ambien in the world for you then.

Got one in the end. Spent over £200 on hue stuff in last 2 weeks

I think the whole concept of wifi lighting is upside down. It's good as retro fit but I think going forward any house that is being built/retired should have the technology to control each electrical outlet remotely (such as an app), be it a light switch or a plug socket.

Doesn't matter which bulb you use or how often it fails. It's a normal priced bulb that doesn't require additional technology in the bulb or separate equipment. Accept that these bulbs in this deal offer additional colours.

Also think the whole start meter is a fallacy. Nothing smart about transmitting readings. It would be better if you could see real time usage remotely and drill that down to how much electricity is being consumed by each socket in real time or over a certain period.

Rant over!

P.S I won't be buying any, just in case that wasn't obvious (_;)

Check out LightwaveRF if those are your thoughts :). Smart meter in an app and retrofit sockets and light switches so keep your normal bulbs. Simples!

Can these be used to replicate the 80s when it was the in thing to buy blue lightbulbs?

Go Chinese through ebay forget apps you get a remote with them the outdoor ones are brill and they cheap as chips. Chinese make good lights but sh*te metal.

These, are what I considered for a while ibroadlink.com/tc2/ . Still might add them for certain lights that wouldn't be suitable for Hue.
