I know this deal wont be for everyone, but these are now nearly half the price of t he Philips equivalent. 1-2 months delivery listed. but from my experience that's never the case when amazon says this, at at this price I'm happy to wait

Been tracking these for a while and they normally sit around £25 each, they were slightly cheaper than this last October, but this is the best price in nearly a year.

Everything I've read said they work with a Hue setup, I've just ordered 6 for my hall and landing.

So do these connect to a hue hub?
Good price, apparently they do work with Hue so:D

Yes, should do. Although will require Osram hub to update firmware.

I thought Philips' alternatives are brighter...

Both seem to be 470lm

No a bad price, but I got caught out last time when Philips blocked access to these with a hub update. Not cheap enough to take a risk on.

Check out the Ikea TRÅDFRI range of smart bulbs before purchasing....
A good price but a shame the temperature doesn't go as low as the Philips white ambiance.

From what i have seen the IKEA bulbs are not compatible with the Hue setup, which was what i needed.

Philips have already backtracked over locking out third parties from the Hue ecosystem so i cant imagine them doing it again, but you never know.
I had nothing but trouble with Osram Lightify, I got 6 GU10 and still can't get them fully connected to my existing Hue setup - although they are detected (I can dim them), I cannot switch them off completely (they stay in a low dimmed state)
I then got the Lightify hub to see if I can update the bulbs firmware, but the Lightify hub would not even find the bulbs!
Unfortunately too long has passed and I cannot return any of the equipment.
Can anyone help? Cheers

I have a couple of the Innr bulbs too and I know they have to be added to the hub in a very specific way, is there a certain way the Osram one have to be added maybe?

With the Innr you have to start the search in the app then turn the build on, from some reading I've done the Osram seem to be the same.
