Thanks for the heads up. Just ordered, albeit it was a few pence over £40 but with the benefit of hassle free returns I'm happy to pay slightly more.

I thought so too, but people are already voting cold. I don't mind, I'm all for saving money too, but wish they would just post where we, the community, can get a better deal.

No problem
Good price. Have some heat even though they don't post to NI
Oos.
Guys, I'm looking for some HUE setup advice from someone experienced.
My goal is to have a light setup dependent on time of a day with motion sensor - no switches, no app. Just say it up once and forget.
- during the day, when there is enough light outside, the lights are of
- on evening, lets say up to 9pm motion sensor activates the lights when I'm passing by - they are set for maximum brightness and neutral white
- between 9pm and midnight colour is set to 2700k and on half power, again motion sensor activated.
- midnight to 4am lights are on minimum brightness, same 2700k, motion sensor only as well.
- after that time it's maximum brightness again, but 4000k, motion activated.
From logical point of view it's doable, but sometimes the technology is not logical at all.
Any opinions / experience in that matter?

You can almost do everything you are asking just by getting the hue motion sensor. It has most of the functionality you are asking in the setup for the sensor. The only part you will not be able to do is having three different time periods. You couldn't have midnight to 4, 4 to 9 and 9 till midnight as Philips only lets you set one daytime and the rest of the hours are classed as nighttime, so in your case you could have 4 till 9 is day time and 9 till 4 is night time. It is technically possible to set it up with three different time zones doing different things if you use another app like apples home app to configure it, but it isn't the easiest to configure and it doesn't work as nice or cleanly as it does when you use the Philips setup.

You don't have to find a cheaper price to think it's a bad deal.

That said, I haven't seen it this cheap. I remember the Sonos deal that was on 1-2 months ago where they were advertising a "free mini Hue kit worth £130", and wondering how they came to that RRP.
I'm considering getting smart lights. What's the advantage of a Hue setup requiring a hub vs the systems that don't require a hub?

Not sure what other system you're referring to. Assuming you mean a timer controlled system, then the hue/smart devices allow. you to control your lights while away from home. And, though not tried myself, you can set location based control, so lights come on at location and off when you leave. If you have Google home or Alexa you can ask lights to be turned on individually, with brightness and colour ambience to your preferred setting. Sorry, if I'm way off on answer, and you are already aware of this info.
