This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Hue Colour Bulb Gen 3 (Richer Colours version) with E27 fitting - great price for an individual bulb.

I wonder if these are being sold off as the Gen 4 (Bluetooth controlled) ones are coming out.

Just what I was looking for as recent deals have been for 2 bulbs!
shame need bayonet and bluetooth bulb
Excellent price. Just be warned, if you don't have a Hue bridge, these don't have Bluetooth. The newer model on Amazon do but not these specific bulbs. If you've got a bridge - this is a steal!

I just bought adapters to turn the screw in to a bayonet type. Doesn't help I suppose when you need Bluetooth too.
Can anyone recommend 2-way or 3-way ceiling light fitting for these?

I looked but I couldn't find anything ceiling mounted (2-way or 3-way) that would take e27
I'm new to Philips Hue lights but I'd like to get one for my desk lamp since I have a Philips TV with Ambilight in the room as well. Am I right in saying that I'd need to buy this as well as a Hue Bridge in order for it to work?

Don't need it.... Bought it I've got a bridge so this is a bargain
Do these work with smart life app?

Yes, and if you're growing your system it would make sense. Especially when you open up to switches dimmers and sensors
Tried to buy two, but Amazon limiting to one only. Great price!
These are so good thanks41036619-HxOh2.jpg

With circa 20-30 pounds for Hue hub on ebay - not many reasons not to have it
£22 for a warehouse lightbulb?

The lightwaverf smart wall switches are far better value long-term

Yeah... Not sure how you work that out when the hub and one dimmer switch is £185. Just an extra £60 per light from there on (with no colour control)
You can also get 2 for £55 and there ARE with Bluetooth ? amazon.co.uk/Phi…CVG
Will go nicely with my hue sync box set up

Philips smart bulbs are like iOS for teenagers bedrooms
Lightwaverf is like Android for refined smarthomes.

Each to their own, but having had both I think the versatility/ flexibility of smart sockets and switches is better than underperforming expensive bulbs.

Had everything from Poundland bulbs to 100w equivalent 6000k dimmable LEDs in my set up. The hues wound up in a spare drawer.

The hub is like £60 and switches from £25

You can make any bulb of your choice smart, even colour changing bulbs if that's your bag.
You can also control any appliance via smart sockets, not just bulbs.

Will these light switches change the colour of your light?

Will these light switches change the colour of your light?


If you put a colour changing led bulb with memory function they will. I've an led installed that when you cycle the switch quickly it changes the kelvin, colour etc and remembers where you stop. By making your switches and sockets smart, you're really unlimited in what you can do. The Philip bulbs are the equivalent of having a smartphone with one app.

Personally I like a a very bright white light like a 100w equivalent at 6000k.. you can't go this high with a Philips. I like switching out ceiling lights or changing things out to led strips.. because the switches/ sockets are already smart they all are too.
Thanks ordered 2.
Now they are £21.33. Used but like new from amazon

These are the older style models which are far less compatible with general LED bulbs. I know because I have some of the switches and they have been incompatible with many LED bulbs, and therefore you have to buy certain bulbs if you want good dimming functionality at a lot higher cost than normal LED bulbs. I have now bought one of the newer 2nd generation model dimmer switches (far more expensive) and they are a lot better allowing my original LED bulbs to dim much lower with zero flickering, but the switches are a lot more expensive.I also have Philips HUE bulbs and switches and other HUE lights and an ambilight TV. Overall the Philips lighting is way better integrated with the hub controlling so many more lights, setting them up as groups, has a much better App, can be linked to alarm systems if you want to, works amazingly with ambilight TV's, and now has bluetooth control for the latest bulbs. Personally if a room has many lights on 1 fitting then lightwaverf is a good option rather than replacing all of the bulbs (but understanding the switch or app won't change light colours), but for individual room lighting with few bulbs & much better control (like most houses) then I think Philips HUE is a better option overall.
Deal back on?

Same as me lol. I actually ordered 2 then cancelled as I was told these are not richer colours in a previous comment. Regretted cancelling them as they are the ones I'm after lol. Checked Amazon basket to see they were back down in price but wouldn't let me purchase them.

Good post

It's the dimmable issue not just a case of fitting dimmable led bulbs?

I would still have said having control over the power source offers more versatility.
i.e. for Christmas Lights, Led Light Strips, Lighting that already comes bulbs or has integrated/ non-replaceable bulbs. Then there's the flexibility of controlling anything with plug with the smart sockets. I can literally press one button and turn off every light and socket in the house.
I received mine and they have a fault like all others ordered from amazon.
Try this: go to Google home app and add your bulb. Then select colour 'Indigo' and drop the brightness, you light notice that the indigo( dark purple) will go dark blue once lower than 10%.
This is the Lct015 model humber, generation 3.1 with Intertek and signify logos on them but compared to the ones I bought from currys one year ago they are not 100% perfect.
