I am glad to have an actual reply with info, but just how rough is an area that people need the lights to go on and off more than a plug in timer can manage. It just strikes me as another gimmick to justify 6.7.8.9hundred pound phones?


Mate, you seriously aren't going to win any popularity contests.
Stop banging on about 6/7/800 pound phones. Stop looking down your nose at smartbulbs, or people who like home automation.
People have different needs/desires/value systems about what they buy. If you don't wanna buy something, don't.
Your words just come off as everyone interested in these are idiots, or anyone who buys an expensive phone is a mug.

And don't trot out the "I'm here for information" line, you are on a wind up mission.
And if you think 10 pounds is even an amount of money an adult should be debating then you've got real perspective issues.

For the sake of the thread. Please refrain from posting, and let people talk about alternative brands, or better prices.

I;m going to get a proper slagging on here for saying this but as this is a bargain site I feel I have to. Set up an alert for Yeelight on here and you should be able to get a 16 million colour LED smart bulb for less than this white-only one. No bridge required as well and from a bigger company than Philips! Alexa/Google Home compatible...

So just basically and overpriced passive infra red device, another excuse …So just basically and overpriced passive infra red device, another excuse to justify a phone that costs over £500. They are no cheaper to run than a standard 9.5w lamp and good luck getting anything that turns on and off multiple times a day to last anywhere near 15 years. I am a just a natural cynic so this is not a critical assessment of what you do with your money, you are happy to spend the money needed to fund this. I just do not see it being just £10 for a lamp from what you say there are phones and apps involved. I would rather buy some seeds and grow a bit of veg with kids, rather than worry about them falling off a cliff on the way to use a toilet. As many billions, myself included manage to do without 'smart lamps' or in fact any light.




So why even look at a thread involving a product you don't 'get'? You need a less stressful hobby...

Nope, you don't want to know anything, you'd already made your mind up on these but came here to express it. It's troll-like behaviour, no matter how much you will dislike that summing up.

I've never seen them this cheap without being part of a 3 for 2 or the need to use some secret code. It's gonna get got in here!

Fantastic price - Hot.

Already run out in store where I live, got one from a hub store and another from the DC.

edit:

Anyone see the difference between these?

so these work with alexa?

Hub or echo? Any deals around here?

Do you need a system or something for these to work or do they work on their own?? Sorry if that’s a stupid question

One of the reasons is that it doesn't need a hub. That's the main thing for me.

Companies need to realise that if all of they're stuff needs hubs, eventually people won't buy into it.

I think one of the main reasons that the yeelights are so successful is that it doesn't need a hub so just fits into your current system. App does a good job and very customisable.

If only they did different shaped lights, I'd replace alot more lights at home.

Would they work with hive?

They've been a massive success story so i expect lots of new products hitting the market in the future. Xiaomi/Yeelight are basically giving just about everyone the chance to smart light their entire home wheraes previously it would have been a pipe dream for many.

Same item.

The EAN numbers match.

I've been thinking about jumping on these or the Yeelights for a while now.

All my lights are bayonet fittings. Do the little adapter things work ok or am I going to need to replace the light fittings?

I know hue have a bayonet type but they don't seem to be widely available or are much more expensive.

Good old PhilipsHue 9.5W LED's, my most favourite of all the lightbulbs.

I use the adapters you can get 5 off amazon for £5.99

They are not just a standard light . You can also use as a security system when you are not home as you can turn your lights on and off using the app. I love mine , as I step to open the front door my hallway light auto turns on when it’s dark . You can also get accessories that are motion control great for little kids needing to use the bathroom at night . They also use very little electric plus will last around 15 years with average use that’s 66p a year for the light bulb so the cost is very cheap compared to standard light bulbs . Once you start getting smart lightbulbs you will love them and never return to standard ones

Budget a quid each for the adapters, the ones I got from Amazon work flawlessly. And if value for money is important to you (and if it isn't why are you on HUKD 10.30pm on a Saturday night? (cheeky)) then it simply has to be Yeelight.

The ceiling light pandants we inherited when we bought the house were white plastic jobbies and horrid so we replaced them all with these (screw fitting so no adapter needed on these). Well recommended.

Agree but dont they operate from a server in china? So if internet down, server switched off, sanctions blocking access etc then it's just an expensive bulb. Do they work as a mesh network too?

Your summing up is completely irrelevant to me as are you. Pretty please look up the word rhetorical before you feel the urge to add even less to this than you already have. If however you would like to add, just how these lamps are used and the total cost to actually use them as they are designed to be used. Then feel free to add it in a separate comment and maybe feel good about yourself, knowing that you were of use rather than just well whatever this is you are doing




Well, someone needed to give you a reality check, just a bit sad that the task has to fall to a stranger on the internet.

So nothing constructive to add whatsoever. Why am i not surprised and PLEASE do something useful today and look up rhetorical. Why you even feel the need to interject gosh you must be a popular sort.

Tis the future my friend! Home automation, done right makes life easier.

I've just been out for a few hours. Whilst out I was able to switch the lights on to my house remotely whilst being miles away. I was also able to switch on my central heating remotely so when I got home, my house was warm for me.

I use this bulb in my porch light. It comes on automatically at sunset and goes off at a set time every night. In my old house I used to have an outside light on a timeswitch but half the time it would be on when it was light or off when it was dark. I paid full price for it but for me it was worth every penny for the flexibility it brings.

I know, but come on! programmable timers that work to the minute have been around for years, and this is not a dig trust me!! I am glad to have an actual reply with info, but just how rough is an area that people need the lights to go on and off more than a plug in timer can manage. It just strikes me as another gimmick to justify 6.7.8.9hundred pound phones?

Why not stop being lazy and get off your asses to switch the light on or off

Plug in timer works on a lamp , plus If your on holiday you can’t set it to come on what ever time u want not a set time . I’m guessing you wouldn’t be interested in video camera door bells that’s my next purchase

Once you go smart you never go back

I do get these are a fun gimmick, but to be honest Id rather just use a light switch to switch my lights on rather than spending even more time looking at my phone! If I go away I'll just leave a light or two on anyway, LEDs use very little power so it's not like you are going to save a lot of electricity, and surely they all take a small current whilst permanently on standby anyway for the wifi to work?
