Very rarely on offer, but 25% off right now which is the cheapest I've seen it.

This is one of my favourite Philips hue lights, as it chucks out just as much light as 2x of the standard ambience color lights (roughly 120W equiv), as well as being able to show any colour you want. I've got mine set up to be turned on with either Amazon Echo or the motion sensors.

The 2m long strip can be stuck wherever you want, shortened, or extended if you buy extra ones. Yes, it's expensive as LED strip lighting goes, but this is arguably the best you can get and it automatically works with any existing Philips hue setup.

That is a ridiculous price for a LED strip light, I wonder how much profit Philips are milking out of people for them.

A pair of Philips hue ambience color bulbs would come to £99.98, so get those if you prefer

You can get pretty much the same thing and in longer lengths for loads cheaper. I see no reason to pay this much.

I think you're missing the point - this one is compatible with Philips hue so you can turn it on, change the color, dim it and so on by using an app, talking to Alexa, or using Philips hue motion sensors.

i have these and they are great but i have seen the double pack plus bridge on offer before for 75 so sorry not a great deal.

Are you sure that's the Lightstrip Plus? It looks like only the original first gen Lightstrip was ever in a 2x strip + bridge pack.

The first gen are only 160 lumens. The Plus puts out 1600. It's literally 10x brighter. The original Lightstrip is great for ambient lighting, but the Plus can do ambient lighting and be used as an actual light (equivalent to roughly 2 old school 60W bulbs in output).

It's even more significant if an extension strip is used because the extensions reduce the average brightness, so you can stack the Plus strips many more times with extensions before it looks too dim.

£52.49 is cheaper than these usually go for second-hand.

​this is a phillips ambience thing. it works witht other phillips ambience set up so you dont have to get out a remote and set up each one individually. people pay a lot for this convenience just like people pay extra for the simplicity of apple products and the premium price attached. i dont want this bit its a good price for the product ie not been cheaper so if someone only wants this rather than having a generic one with yet another tacky remote to run out of battery just as the guests come round then let them pay for it and you can save your money. but it is a good deal for the product.

I'm not knocking this deal but you can get a wifi enabled rgb controller for standard LED strips. Maybe worth considering?

Although these are from a reputable make, have bought numerous Chinese led strip lights for far less than this that are dimmable that are working in 3 years of use.

How long is the power lead for the light strip?

Another one misses the point...

Thank goodness..I have shipped back my Alexa.

love my philips hue system. do i need anymore lights around the house lol

decent price, picked mine up for £38 back in july (lightning deal + student discount)

Thinking about getting this but need to feed the power cable through a wall... How long is it and can it be cut or wired directly in to a fused spur?

The cable is long, but it very much CANNOT be wired into a spur.

It's a transformer built into the plug with a DC connector output that the control box plugs into via the attached 1m fly lead.

You could, in theory, put a transformer in your dostribution board on the dinrail and run a low voltage feed from there to a blank plate with a DC connector on it, but it's probably easier just to change the spur for a socket and plug the adaptor that come in the box into it!

do I need this? mmmm. not sure but I do want it!! have four hue bulbs currently in the house (3x white and 1x ambiance). not quite sure where this one would go though. I need convincing or to see images of where people have there's setup...
