Even tho, this is an incredible deal, I can buy 2 millions bulbs from Chindonesia for 1p that will almost certainly burn my house down.

I was of the same opinion until I fell in love with Hue Sync. Have you got a PC or a media centre or anything? Hue Sync is awesome!

Good catch @Chanchi32 , this is an inferno of a deal!

I'll spam my usual Hue primer for anyone interested that doesn't already know Hue.

I also always recommend going for E27 and using the 50p adapters from Ikea if needs be, but each to their own.

I'll post my usual Hue primer for anyone interested:

If you are interested in home automation and/or voice control etc then the Hue route is a great place to start.

Ideally you want a Hue Starter Pack that includes a gateway (Hue Hub v2 or v2.1), a couple of bulbs (or more), and maybe a special dimmer switch (which you don't need but can be nice to have). There are different start packs available.

This one is two bulbs and a hub. (And a Google Mini.)

The Hue Hub is the thing that bridges between your network (for the app and the integration etc) and the bulbs (via Zigbee). You can get it separately (~£35), but it's better value to get it as part of a starter pack (~£55).

There's also a very basic version built into the newer Amazon Echo Plus.

The Hue hub is the easiest and most popular smart lighting gateway. The app (on iOS and Android) is great and there are lots of third-party replacements if you need something weird. Easy to schedule stuff (like gently waking up, or the lights to be turned on just before you get home from work), easy to control (the Hue Android widgets work great). Loads of third party apps too, like WinHue (Windows) for other devices too.

You then add extra bulbs, fancy devices (like motion sensors or dimmer switches) and/or fancy lights (like light strips and the "Go" lamp) as it tickles your fancy.

There are three main types of the normal Philips Hue bulbs: White, White Ambiance, and White & Colour Ambiance.

White are a warmish white, with adjustable brightness.

White Ambiance have an adjustable colour temperature (and brightness). You can make them give a cool white light, a warm white light, or anywhere between. Great for bedrooms (wake-up with the blue-ish light, go to sleep with the red-ish light).

White & Colour ("color") Ambiance let you adjust the colour in fancy ways, like red, green, blue.

I have White in communal areas (hallways etc), White Ambiance in all bedrooms (because it really does make a difference for me), and Colour next to big screens.

There's easy and reliable integration with Alexa (Amazon), HomeKit (Apple), and Google Home. It's also compatible with IFTT and Home Assistant etc for real custom setups.

Using Hue Sync, you can get the coloured setups to sync with what you're watching on TV, or what you're listening to. There are restrictions on the devices and setups you can use, but it's cool to see and so much fun to use. It integrates perfectly with modern Ambilight TVs too.

All the Hue devices communicate via Zigbee, which builds a mesh. That means the bulbs don't need to be in direct contact with the hub, so long as they can reach the hub via another bulb. The signal will span most houses so long as there are a decent number of bulbs spread throughout.

There are other options than Hue (WiFi bulbs like TP-Link's, other Zigbee systems like Ikea's Tradfri and Samsung SmartThings and some crazy Xiaomi stuff, and DeCONZ, Z-Wave systems and proprietary systems like Hive).

But Hue is the easiest, most popular, and best choice for smart lighting for most people.

If you've got any questions, pretty much anyone who has tried it will rapidly become a product evangelist. It really is that good.
Yet another hue deal that’s not the GU10 variant

Awesome find!
Damn you chinchilla, I was just about to post this
Great 🔥
Even tho, this is an incredible deal, I can buy 2 millions bulbs from Chindonesia for 1p that will almost certainly burn my house down.
Best deal I have seen in a while in my opinion. Hue is great (and pricy) and the Google Home Mini is a cracking little device.
Yet another hue deal that’s not the GU10 variant
Absolutely scorching deal. Even without the Google home. Like I already have a hub but now I'll have 3 lol
Jesus that's the best hue deal I've ever seen
Combined it with that £3 extra cashback on topcashback deal
Stonking deal!
Wont even let me reserve on the site keeps refreshing....

Stonking deal. But I just don't need colour and I know I'd just never get around to ebaying the hub and home-mini. Wish they would do something similar with the white ambience bulbs.
Thanks OP ordered 2 x B22 starter kits.
I've been waiting for nearly a year for the E14 bulbs to be reduced and not even a hint of joy. What gives with the giveaways but no giveaway on the bulbs I want to be given away?
£15 cheaper than the previous best, nice work. Flog the mini for £20 and the hub for £20 and you're looking at £30 for a pair of bulbs
Do you need the hub for these to work? Or can you control them with the app?

There is no advantage of using B22 over E27 and vice versa. At the end of the day the bulb and the light does the same thing.

The disadvantage of using an adapter is that it makes the bulb stick out more and these are large bulbs to begin with.
I've been thinking about getting a Hue for a while but I'm worried that the bulbs won't fit in my light fittings. For reference, here are the ceiling light bulbs that I currently have installed in the upstairs bedrooms. 38003660-9jrj6.jpgThe Hue bulbs are a completely different size and shape so I'm assuming they wont fit. Will they fit in a bedside lamp?
Superb deal, ordered.

Refurbed the house and I picked some of these up last year, ordered again.

I wonder if those picking up from store will mistakenly get given the 3 boxed started kit like last time.

I got two cheap dimmer + E27 bundles and wished I hadn't as I have struggled to find a mainstream seller of E27 pendants. If you have a lot of IKEA fittings or similar they're fine though - I ended up buying extra B22s and put one of the E27s in a big IKEA lamp.

To add to Nexy's post above, if you have access to an iPhone I would recommend the £10 or so for iConnectHue as it allows you to completely redesign the dimmer switch to your purposes.

I also ended up buying a Philips ambilight TV to go with. @Bendown just go into the TV settings and you should find "Ambilight + Hue" - from there follow the on screen instructions to add it to your hub and select the lights and their positions.

perhaps I’m misunderstanding you - but I found all the “nice” pendant fittings are e27. I just had the whole house rewired and have b22 bulbs from my previous wiring. But where we wanted something a bit nicer than the standard white fitting we had to switch out to e27. where were you looking for your fittings to find nice b22?

Either way I don’t recommend using adapters, they are fine if the bulb is fully concealed - but otherwise they are unsightly.

I will back up your recommendation for iconnecthue - hands down the best app I’ve used. You can customise every aspect of your setup.

I've always bought the light fixtures first and then the bulbs to use with them so I've never had to use adapters. Sounds like you have been doing it the other way round

Smart ZigBee Light Switch Controller for Echo Plus and Compatible ZigBee Bridge Hub to Control Normal Lights, LED Downlights Smart Home Automation amazon.co.uk/dp/…N93

Now i have smart on/off control of these lights. Didn't need to do anything fancy with them other than be able to use timer feature and Alexa control now and again.
Does anyone know the difference between the hue and the hue 2.0?

Does anyone know the difference between the hue and the hue 2.0?



Guess you’re talking about the hub/bridge? The second (square) version of the hub is faster and can store more commands...even if you find a round hub for cheaper it’s not worth the money saved compared to what it can do.

Yeah, first of all they're vastly easier to use with the suction cup on a pole bulb changer thingies. Super useful if you have them in the ceiling or whatever.

You don't have to push down into the bulb to remove it, and having seen a B22 bulb shatter during this stage it's not something I'd recommend.

Also standarize. If you import fittings, or get them from IKEA or wherever, it's going to be E27.

Opinions differ however, as you see.
