This is my first deal, so hope everything is correct.

I'm in the process of buying smart home bits for our new house, and noticed the dimmer kits have been reduced by a few quid on Amazon, compared to the previous deal.

I think it's due to the release of the newer Bluetooth bulbs.

If you need a dimmer or bulb it seems like a great deal.

Why are most of these Hue type lights E27? Where are the bayonet fitting versions? Is there a reason that screw fits work better with smart hubs?

I'm surprised you had issues. I bought number of these kits and never had problems adding them in. Bulb - just add by a serial number, and with a dimmer - just put it in pairing mode.

If you have a hue hub then both dimmer and bulb can be added to it, I've not managed it on my set but I've had two multicolour sets with dimmers and they've all setup to use with alexa echo and Google home in the respective rooms.

No-one. It's a question.


You probably need to brush up your grammar then

"Is there a reason that screw fits work better with smart hubs"

The question is "is there a reason" and the statement is "screw fits work better with smart hubs".

Like "is there a reason Manchester won the league?" Manchester city winning the league is presented as a fact, and the question is asking the reason for it.

You're welcome.
