Really? £10 cheaper for 3 with hub …Really? £10 cheaper for 3 with hub !!!https://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-Ambiance-Starter-Synthetics-Colour/dp/B0152WXDOA?th=1


That’s the OLD bulbs. This is the newer bulbs which fit in any gu10 pot (unlike the long gu10s that you just linked).

Also these ones are 30% brighter and feature bluetooth for use without bridge and for faster mesh communication.
I'm a huge fan of Hue lights whereby almost every bulb in my house was a smart light (combination of Hue, Osram & YeeLight) until I recently moved house which had GU10 spots but I just couldn't justify the price of these so opted for a Chinese brand "Gledopto" which work seamlessly with the hue bridge including the motion sensor and dimmers and got 4 GU10's for just under £60 and are every bit as good minus the bluetooth.

I was so impressed, I put a further order in for 3 E14's and 3 MR16's.

No doubt, Hue official lights are the best on the market but the prices are not justified IMO.

These are the new version with Bluetooth and also smaller so will work where old style was too big.
How many volts are these? 12 or 220?
I really hope they will have a special on there motion detectors 🤞🤞

I thought you couldn't fade from the color spectrum to the white spectrum and vice versa with gledopto bulbs or has this been fixed ?

I think that's still an issue but as I don't use auto changing scenes it's not a problem for me but of course, if you want that function, these probably are not for you.

Personally, I prefer to have preset scenes with the hue dimmer switch and theres no problems switching from colour to white with a click of the button.

Never thought of doing that. That is actually a good work around
I have several Gledopto Gu10's connected to my Philips Hue hub. I do have a small problem with them though in that each of them will periodically turn on for no reason at all, whereas the Philips Hue stuff just works with no issues at all. All of my other GU10's are Osram which I wiil replace if I can find a reliable substitute that is bright enough which has been why I have so far not used Philips Hue ones. Unsure about Bluetooth in this situation though

They’re the rubbish ones... rubbish as in brightness, and the worst bit, they’re big, as in quite often fail to fit in standard GU10 housings.



Ordered 6 of the ones in this deal, thanks. Hopefully this ‘standard’ form factor fits now!
Edited by: "Vini" 22nd Nov 2019
Heat from me been waiting to pounce on a set of these
What kind of warranty do you get with these I assume they fail the same as any bulb?
Heat - will still wait until BF though.

To the poster above. I really wouldn’t say the old gen are rubbish if you’re referring to their brightness as they are very bright indeed, albeit not as bright as the new ones.

Yes, Ive bought both with delayed delivery. So I can decide.

Everything I read makes the newer ones a better deal, even at the increased price and no hub.

I don't have any HUE GU10 yet, just worried the older ones won't fit properly in my downlights. Add to that the increased brightness and its worth the extra I think.

You just have to shop around for Hue bulbs. All lights in my house are now Hue lights, and I've never paid more than £20 for a bulb. And I also have quite a few Hue fittings which I got at about half the usual price on Amazon Warehouse deals.

£20 a bulb is still more expensive than Yeelights, Gledopto, etc, but only a small amount. I'm not knocking the competition at all, plenty of them are excellent, but just saying that Hue bulbs don't need to be £50 a pop like many think.

Do you know what downlights you have? You can buy open-backed downlights for a few quid each, which definitely fit the older ones. But if it's below an insulated ceiling you also then need insulation covers too (I could never find a fire rated downlight that fitted the longer GU10s that also was insulation coverable).

The downlights I fitted for the old Hue GU10s cost me a fair bit more just to be compatible. They were about £20 per downlight including insulation covers. I've just had 6 more downlights put in today and they were only £5 each, since I am putting the new Hue GU10s in.

So basically yes I agree, the extra cost of the new bulbs (which is only about £5 to £7 extra each) is more than offset by the savings in downlight costs.

Thank you for your information, much appreciated.

Unfortunately, these downlights are in a flat roof with Kingspan above. As such, the units needed to be fire rated with covers. Thats why I don't think the older ones will fit.

As you say, offset the cost and the benefits, it just makes more sense to go go with the newer models.

Yes exactly, even just in terms of cost it is worthwhile, and that's not considering the other benefits - I'm not interested in the Bluetooth but the colours are apparently better. I'm also hoping the housing of the newer bulbs is closer to white, because on the old ones it's a bit of an off-white which clashes with my downlights. First world problems, I know.
Are you only allowed to buy one pack of these? I'm getting this error:

I agree however there is the fact that its not very often you can grab them for that kind of price.

I've had Hue bulbs from Amazon Italy, France, Germany & Spain but again, the deals are rare to get a reasonable price.

I think Its an awful shame the YeeLight bulbs do not have Zigbee so therefore cannot be controlled by the Hue Bridge as I have found the build quality, color output and brightness on par with Hue.

Osram on the other hand work with the bridge but I have found the colour is poor > imho.
I bought these for my old ones, they fit (just about) and are fire rated. With the length of the bulb they don't swivel but I didn't want that feature anyway.

You could order now and then if they're cheaper next week order another set and then either return the original ones, or hang onto them for a weeks and sell on eBay (where you're likely to make your money back if not a profit).

Yes true it's a bit of hassle waiting for deals on Hue bulbs - I've waited a few months to get the last GU10s I needed.

And agreed about the YeeLights, and also the Xiaomi bulbs too - you would have thought their priority would be to be Hue compatible and snap up a huge chunk of the market!
Beware - Just opened 12 bulbs to find fakes/swapped out bulbs 6 out of 12 ordered, in the dual boxes.39076322-bnmli.jpg
