Normal price £29.99.

Lightify stuff is apparently not the best but Hue compatible so long as you update the firmware (you will need the gateway). I don't have any myself so cannot confirm.

For cheaper you could get a YeeLight which doesn't need the gateway. All you need is the bulb which connects directly to your router and you can control it from anywhere via the YeeLight app.

Can't link it to work alongside my existing Hue bulbs tho

I have several of these and they are as good as Philips Hue in my opinion (i have those as well). £9.99 is a great price for an RGB bulb. Osram have a standard 2 year guarantee with these as well.

Was tempted but price now over £30.

Get a yeelight as jayR says. Excellent bulb and simple to control. Wait for a price drop at Gear best tho.

Yes, Yee Light colour change RGB versions are usually around £14 but less than a tenner if you pick your time and website. The White only versions are usually less than a tenner.
Fun thing with the colour change version is to use the app and phone camera to 'sample' your wall colour so the bulb matches.

They're far inferior to Hue. If you're Whites are too cool then the bulbs start to have a slight buzz until you turn down the brightness to about 80.

The colours are also much weaker and transitions between colours are jarring compared to Hue.

They're also a lot flakier sometimes claiming to be Unreachable and sometimes performing actions never asked for.

All that said though, I would buy at this price or even the 3 bulbs and bridge for £39.99 as it's still much cheaper than a Hue bulb which is normally £25 when on a decent offer.

Bought three and they all work great with Smartthings. Actually better than some Aeotec bulbs I got in regards to lag. Obviously colour reproduction isn't as good but whites are perfect.

Thanks OP...wish I bought more...
