Stick the bulb in your lamp and put switch by your bed. So you can control the light as you need.
Anyone know what I'd need to get set up with a bulb for my office that can go from a harsher "office" white to a warmer white?

this is a dimmable bulb that can be controlled by the switch
The switch connect wirelessly to the bulb and is battery powered so you can put the switch anywhere like by your bed to turn on or off, dim your light
(this bulb is white light only)
Hue bridge is not required with this set

Actually, that’s not true with this starter kit. The lamp and remote are paired out of the box, and no hub is required. Course, the idea is, as soon as you get into it, and start to complicate matters with more bulbs and remotes, a hub ties everything together.

You can get hue lightstrip, hue motion,...etc to complete the set
However you have to have the Hue BRIDGE to be able to control them all from your phone

Wireless dimmer switch operable from your phone with the relevant equipment? I see.
So you don't need the bridge if you just want to use the switch and not your phone?
Is there a timer on the hub for lights to go on and off?

It's controlled by an app, it may let you see the functions of it if you install it even without a hub, worth a shot.

there's no option for that from this set or with hue app
But there's a workaround which requires Hue bridge and Samsung smartthings

Edit: you can actually set routines for your lights in the app

No you don't need the bridge
It can be used with the switch right out of the box
If I’m out would I be able to turn the lights on and off with an app ?

Hub required for that functionality.

The app talks to the hub, at home and when away.
When buying hue bulbs, what's the conversion of the bulbs I should look out for if I'm coming from standard non led bulbs?

Right, but I assume you can't use just this dimmer switch to control the "temperature" of the ambiance bulb?

It is possible (I believe) to tell the dimmer 1 tap for cool, 2 taps for warm etc.

You'd still need to use an app to configure that in the first place. And maybe you'd need the bridge too (not certain) but the Hue app easily lets you alter the colour temps.

It depends on the bulb you have
If u want warm white, you need the white ambience which cost more
And you can dim the bulbs with the 2 buttons in the middle
Phone is flat, currently sitting here in the dark. Wish I had the dimmer switch
May be a long shot question here but I’m currently buying an house and preparing for it. All the bedrooms newly fit ceiling fan lights. any idea what the usual lightbulb fitting is for those and if Hue bulbs will be anygood for them due to the light bulb being surrounded by a glass shell?
The only issue I got with this is that the CRI of the bulb is only 80. I expected a big company like Philips to do better than that but they lag behind smaller companies. I have 97 CRI and this philips would be a big downgrade. You can definitely tell the difference. It's the only thing stopping me from buying this.

I'm sure you dont because they sell these as a kit and says Thats all you need. I saw it at a glance at b&q

Ah my bad.... you learn something new every day!

(I do actually own 7 hue bulbs, and a hub - which I've always assumed was required!).

???

They don’t come in various wattages or lumen levels. I’d say pretty much all of the lamps are equivalent to a normal 60w GLS, and the GU10 versions about 50w, but you won’t a) notice a difference or b) have a choice.

It’s not like the days of compact fluorescent energy savers where 9w = 60w or 15w = 100w.

Thanks for the response. If I have 8 spotlights and also a chandelier in a room, can one switch product control both sets of lights separately?

So the spotlights would be controlled together (on/off) and the chandelier would have one control (on)/off). Would I need to buy 2 sets of switches?

U could have them set to separate scenes.
So press on once to just have your spot lights
Press on again (switches scene) just your chandelier
Press on again and have both sets come on

Interesting.... So the 'scene' button is a different button to the on/off button?

If so, I could work with that. Could also set up motion sensors so light goes off if no movement detected after x minutes.

Problem is the price of the candle e14 bulbs and spotlight style bulbs (GU10?) that are so expensive. I've got 8 spotlights and 6 lights on chandelier just in front room

The on button will switch between scenes so press on once will resume last scene. Press again to cycle through your scenes. I think u can have 4 or 5 set to 1 dimmer switch. Yeah the prices are crazy but if uve got the bug, Ull pay it
