​same here

Bayonet set is way hard to get. And usually not cheap. Get this and get the converters they are about 2 quid a pop on amazon, use them myself.

So with this I still need to get the converters to make it work? Or it's not that necessary

Are these dimmable?

Yes.. Are dimmable!

Eu version so eu plug not uk. Uk one is £10 more

Doesn't EU refer to the screw in sockets being EU "standard" whereas the UK "standard" is bayonet?? I could be wrong but I will be very surprised if this turns up with an EU plug. I've ordered so will confirm....

Just to point out that this is V2, so not the latest 'richer colours' version

Spec doesn't say anything about EU!.. It can't be EU.. as long the BT sells them!..

you could try these:

Maybe these are EU plugs as They're also selling a UK/EU model
shop.bt.com/pro…kit

All a bit confusing for me, so these are the white ones? I thought you could change the colours using the app or are those different type of bulbs?

These are purely white.
The next type is white ambience - (Multiple tones of white)
The 3rd type is colour changing

I am pretty sure UE/UK refers to power adapter, my hue led strips were delivered with eu/uk adapter to fit both uk and european sockets.

In that case I might need to contact them in the morning to swap the order to the uk/eu version. Thanks for the heads up. [/i]

Bought adaptors today in Ikea. Converts bayonet to E27 screw thread. Worked a treat.

sorry if I've misunderstood, but isn't this a white bulb?


Yes. They are white only.

How much are these usually?

plenty of sold listings on eBay for just the bridge for £40-£60 (even though Amazon sell bridge for £50).

Could buy for the bulbs and sell the bridge. eBay fees would probably make this idea pointless though

Big thanks, exactly what I was looking for. Ordered

I see so if need to buy colour ones separately?

Others are most likely way more on-the-ball than me but just to reiterate these are not the colour bulbs. Nearly got excited myself.. think these are normally around the £60 mark?

Guessing you will need to get a EU to U.K. adapter for the power supply.

Good deal, bulbs are around £14 each (single white ones) and the hub Is minimum £40 for this type (V2)

So around £70 worth of kit for £50 delivered.

I've been watching this stuff a bit lately as to go with my Echo's and the next best is John Lewis (but its not in stock)

johnlewis.com/phi…794


Thanks

Id rather the white ambience kit. Jl were advertising them for 49 but oos and now gone up to 99

The uk kit of these is 59.99 on john lewis site

JL kit is out of stock!

Yes, unless you will order uk/ue one for same money

Stock seems low to zero everywhere for these sets. I'm guessing there is a supply issue from Philips - perhaps a refresh is imminent?

Quidco, I think is 12.5%
