Not really a big deal, but rather a heads up that these are finally in stock. Saves a few quid if you need more than one bulb.

How much..!!!!!!!
Yes they may be wi-fi but at almost £22.50 each they will never pay for themselves in energy reduction.
Go to tool station or screwfix and you can get a 5 pack of brighter lights for less than £12 and they're not the cheapest ones.
They also come with a novel exercise feature called getting off your butt to turn lights on / off or dim X)
Not bad for less than £2.40 each eh and hey free exercise

They're not "wi-fi", and I don't think many people really buy these for energy saving. People buy them for their convenience and awesomeness.

Exactly. These are still too much though when the Innr ones are £16ish each.

I would get these to put the canopy at the front of my house and schedule a routine to turn them on at sunset and off at a set time.

Do the Innr bulbs work with the Hue hub?

Here we go.........

I nearly ordered two packs the day they arrived at Amazon, but I'm waiting for a Twin pack deal on the twin packs. I reckon two packs for £80 to prime members must be around the corner!

Zzzzzzzzz

Wish these where the coloured at this price

Coloured ones are larger and don't fit all fittings.

Yeah, although one review the guy mentions issues with distance from the hub.
They aren't in stock at the moment though.

I would also add that the Innr gu10s are a warm white. The Philips bulbs are ambient white, so anything from cold blue to a warm orange white.

I expect you don't get why a Porsche is more expensive than a Fiat Punto either?

I cracked and got 2 sets for the kitchen - yes they are expensive but when you start to hook up them up to Alexa/echo they really start to make home automation easy and useful. Throw in the hue sensors and apple home kit compatible it is really good, even the other half sees the benefits Heat added

I wish I didn't have 10 spots in my hallway,.... I just can't justify over £200 sad times.

​Thanks buddy, will have a look.

Does anyone have these that can confirm the length of them? I need short bulbs for my lights and wonder if these are too long?

You can use the RM2 to control IR and RF devices, so a cheap pack of RF plug sockets suddenly become a lot smarter. Have been considering one myself for a while but the Alexa support wasn't great when I looked in May.

Apparently Broadlink are going add their own Alexa Skill in time but not sure how reliable they are for things like that.

​Don't know the exact size but they fit on my fire rated downlights without no problems. The Hue colour ambiance ones do not fit. These pretty much same size as standard GU10s

Cheers for the link, very interesting

Pretty much the same size, I fitted the kitchen down lights with these, pretty damn good! The app works great, and works with Alexa if you have one. The colour spectrum is good as well, and the app helps with some preset scenes that'll give you some great lighting.

Heat from me OP - A couple of weeks late as already bought before Xmas, but worth it if you're fitting to a kitchen that has a load of fixings! I've set a routine also so the lights fade up in the morning around 15mins before the alarm, so you slowly wake up to a lit room and a kitchen that's ready to go! Plus, set up geofencing and you'll never need to worry if you've left a light on!

That all looks quite complicated once I started reading through it. I have an echo dot - but my phone is IOS not Android. I guess that means I'm out of luck?

So far success has been limited and alexa is a bit unforgiving with voice recognition

I haven't tried it yet, can really afford to buy all the things I want for it, but I agree the setup is quite convoluted.
But once it's set-up that's it unless you add new equipment to your set-up.

It doesn't have to be your phone running it, you could buy a dirt cheap low power Android tv box/stick and leave it running solely to be the Bridge between the RM2 and Alexa.

But some people are saying Broadlink are working on a native Alexa skill, so maybe keep an eye on it to see if they do, then there's no need for the bridging app.

The Innr GU10 are back in stock at Amazon at £15.99

Like limegreenzx said though, they are only warm white, whereas the Philips have adjustable temperature.
