Ceiling mounted and directional instead of being in a lamp/bayonet


I've got Hue bulbs in a ceiling fitting and the Hue GU10 bulbs are directional - I still don't see the benefit

Will this work with Google home/Alexa or is it a stand alone thing?

Works with Alexa, I got the 2 bulb fixing for £37 last month from ebay argos so this one will be the same

Yeah, you still need a Philips bridge though.
Is there any benefit of this over a normal light fitting with Hue bulbs ?

Does anyone know how bright this is?
Good luck if you order this, last time Argos ebay had an offer on these I ordered the single and it arrived without the dimmer.

The benefit is what you are getting for the current price now it is on offer ie. 3 x GU10 bulbs, a dimmer switch and a light fitting for £76.99.

Alternatively you can use any light fitting that supports GU10 bulbs and just put the standalone Philips hue white ambient spots in which the Buckram uses and add a Philips dimmer switch if that’s how you want to control them.

in summary, there isn’t any benefit with the buckram over using standalone bulbs with your own light fitting but the price is good, I paid £90 when it was last on offer, that was an excellent deal then considering how much Philips Hue set their RRP at.

Also just to add, you don’t necessarily need a hue bridge to get this working out of the box. The included dimmer switch is already paired to the light so you can use it standalone.

Not really (plus could have been slightly cheaper) . If you like the design - OK, if not - just put Hue bulbs in something else.

40092043.jpgI have a fitting from Argos, cost £13 I think, just a basic black. The bulbs I got from Currys the other week on the cheap. Agree depends what you need really. The dimmer is about £17, fitting £13 GU10 about £38 ( current at Amazon) so it does boil down to how you like the fitting.....

I tried complaining and asking for a partial refund or sa dimmer to be sent but only offered return of whole item. In the end I had to write a letter to make a complaint "in writing" apparently an email isnt "in writing"

Same here, I did consider sending a complaint about breach of contract to head office but it seemed pointless. Did you get anywhere sending a letter?

Yes, you can control each bulb independently if that’s what you want to do
