Nice! Heat! Bought two of these last time for the kids rooms

For some reason, one of them came with an american dimmer switch (which is identical to the EU one apart from the model number, but still confused me).

As always, these are older bulbs (not the bluetooth version), so make sure you run a software update on these when you get them if you have a hub, it gives you an even dimmer night light setting and gives you last power state recovery, meaning that the physical switch does nothing except cut the power if you need to mess with your wiring/lights.

Are these any good for on decking? Or strictly indoor use only?
Still waiting/hoping for a bargain clearcut price for these old bulbs. Dont really care about BT, just want the cheapest price possible as I have 50 GU10's I want to make smart

After lockdown I’m completely renovating my house and want to make it smart! Would you recommend Philips spotlights? Or normal LED spotlights with a smart switch?

Depends on budget and what you want.

In my case I have 9 light switches and 40 GU10's running off them (thats across all the switches). If I can get:

- Hue GU10's ~£12/bulb
- ~£10 switch
- ~£20 for the hub

Thats £590 for the HUE setup.

If I just switched out the switches to Smart switches, they'd have to be less then £65 to work out the cheaper route.

Looking around at smart switches, it doesn't look like the difference will be enough to justify going the smart switch route. I may aswell pay that little but more and give myself discrete control of every lamp. And if I manage to grab the White Ambience at ~£12, then I'd also be able to control colour temp.

You'll have to do the sums for your own house and determine how much discrete control of each bulb and controlling colour temp is worth to you.

(I have 12 more GU10's in bathrooms/etc which I'd just leave dumb, unless the price was ridiculously good).

I'd love to see a decent smart switch that works on UK wiring - sadly they seem not to exist

Thank you for this! Why do you have so many switches? In my living room I’d like the spotlights to be on separate circuits so an outer ring and inner ring. Would this need 2 separate switches or just be setup via the app? Sorry I’m new to smart lighting!

Switches:

2 x Living room
1 x Kitchen
2 x Passages
4 x Bedroom

If I go smart switching, then i'd need a smart switch for each of those.

If I went Hue, I don't have to use all the switch points. As the smart switches can control any bulb. And I could use voice control/etc. But for the sake of ~£10/switch I may as well add smart switches for convenience. Especially since we're all accustomed to the switch points, so they'll come in handy whilst we get used to the smart lighting.

Not sure about the Hue switches though. May go with the simple on off Ikea switches, sitting on top of a real push button type switch.

Sorry I don’t understand the last line regarding Ikea. Can you send a link please?

P.S this has been so helpful!
This is the Hue switch:

amazon.co.uk/Phi…R39

This is the ikea dimmer I prefer (ignore the price, its ~£6 from Ikea, but they've changed the design slightly. I prefer the old one, so would try to find it cheap if I can, or get the new one):

amazon.co.uk/Ike…C2Z

The Hue switch is a bit ugly and American switch dimensions. So instead I thought I'd get a push button switch like this:

tlc-direct.co.uk/Pro…BwE


Then mount the Ikea Dimmer over the top of the button using a magnet. Think it will look good aesthetically. Be easy to install. And if for any reason I need to reset the bulbs, I just pull of the Ikea dimmer and I can use the physical switch.
