In that case may I suggest you at least get some energy efficiency ones

I don't understand. What's so special about light bulbs that it seems a deal to pay £120 for a set you can change colour on?

Has this world gone mad?
Good price for these. The bayonet ones never seem to be on offer.
Having recently purchased Yeelights for about £8 a bulb, I’m struggling to see how they can have such amassive mark up on these.

Try them and find out (or visit a friend with some). My electrician said the same thing until he saw / used them.

Yeelights aren't as bright so in some situations you would need more than one. Reasonable as an alternative though.
Wait 4 Black friday if in no hurry. These will be under £80 I guess. They were £89 on prime day deals. I paid £120 for mine including motion sensor so this to me is no deal

How about 21 quid on 3 Xiaomi Yeelights, though? Similar functionality as Hue and the added advantage of needing no bridge to work (so just the bulbs needed) They have regularly been on offer from the usual Chinese e-commerce sites and plenty of deals for them have been on HUKD recently. Even the 'normal' price is only 13 quid per bulb. Philips take the pee with their pricing...

Reasonable alternative? The Yeelights i originally bought (3) cost approx 85% less than this Philips Hue starter pack! A very real and sensible alternative would be my view...

Plus remote control, and voice. Or by schedule or event. It is just useful, sometimes.

But you can buy cheap timer switches for a pound. I don't know i guess I'm just one of few people without 120 quid spare to spend on colourful light bulbs
Great price, bought mine for £129 last week.

Highly recommend.
Do they ever have the GU10 pack on promotion ( 3 with hub). Got a whole lounge to kit out
Cold. Packs now come with the light switch. As another user has stated, Amazon had these up for £89 2-3 months ago, will drop again.

You can set the timer on your phone. 120 is a lot of £££

Haven't seen one yet. I have an alert on the Camels as I'm in the same situation but with a bathroom.
does the yeelight work with alexa? just curious? id buy these, but 120 is a tad too much... always have concerns over cheap Chinese electronics, but may risk it for the price difference!

Yes they were a couple of months back, but be careful with the colour ones. I found out to my cost the colour gu10's are too long to fit. I have 2 sitting in a box. Managed to use 1 in a lamp I had. The white and ambiance ones fit fine and as having different colours doesn't matter to me, they work really well for changing brightness/mood
I have very few lights in my house that take bayonet bulbs, mostly ceiling lights that have E14 clear candle bulbs or GU10 downlighters. What's my alternative?

Yes. The Yeelight works with Alexa and Google Home. Have them both working with Yeelights just fine. On/Off - Change Colour etc.

Better deal same price for only on for 3 more hours amazon daily deal. God knows why this is hot and it is not maybe just the bulb type.
Added a £50 switch NB. it is E27. Hope no one has ordered topic deal today and missed out.

I'm just about to have a lounge installed with some new spotlights so have a free choice of light fitting. Any suggestions as to light fittings that will take the colour GU10s? I managed to pick up 6 bulbs off eBay for £160

You just need to make sure the depth is good enough to take the bulb without it sticking out of your ceiling. I'm not sure on exact fittings sorry as i'm no good with diy

Probably too late for your comment since this was a few weeks ago but to answer your question. I have installed around 15 Philips Hue GU10 lights using the LUMiLife GU10 light fitting (code: FT-FIRE-GU10). You can get them from the link below. They are the perfect height for the Hue GU10 Bulbs (i..e extra long depth). Make sure you get the the ones with the code "FT" (Full) and not "ST" (short)
