That's wrong. I've done it loads of times with new and second hand starter sets. Worst case scenario is you need to use the serial number on the side of each bulb.

Thanks!! I was waiting for a good deal on those
That's a good deal. Starter kit is usually £150 and the motion sensor about £35.
Great price. I got this exact deal on Amazon a few weeks ago when it was deal of the day. After seeing how much better this version is (V3) father than the previous (V2) I wished I had ordered more to replace my old ones, the blues and greens really are superior on V3. Have been waiting for them to drop to this price again and finally they have.
How much can the bridges be sold for separately? Tempted at this price for the bulbs and sensor.
Great deal!! Bayonet ordered, well, I say ordered, its generated an order number but no email to confirm and Amazon just went Pete Tong.

Same here - I've also just added the serial number manually with bulbs from a starter kit.
Phew! I bought one... then bought another... then read that comment, panicked, cancelled my other order... Found this: huelights.com/faq…tml and various other sources saying you can re-assign them.... then re-ordered

Thanks, ordered another starter set so I can add some bulbs and a new sensor in the bathroom - will sell the spare bridge. This is getting addictive....
Good deal. Limited 1 per customer

I put one on ebay for £26 buy it now with postage at £3.40 and it sold the same day.

Really want to buy this again but after buying it last time and seeing my credit card bill Will have to hope this deal comes up again in about 3 months when I should have paid it off.

Actually you can pair them without unpairing first, you just need to type the serial numbers on the bulbs in to the app.

Where does it say that? It's not a lightning deal.

Yes but you can still buy more than 1.
Am I missing something? what's the big deal about these?
Wonder if it will be cheaper on prime day? Hmm
Just made an impulse buy for a £120 item. That's a new PB (PW?) for me on HotUKDeals!

Can't see the bayonet starter kit at this price?!
Good price! If this was with the GU10 bulbs i'd be very tempted. Is bayonet fitting the most common in peoples homes? Mine doesn't have any. Prices seem to be coming down on these so I think I will hold on for a bit. Might be more deals prime day too.

how? by ordering again. Might they not cancel your order when processing. The order isn't accepted until they take payment prior to dispatch.

Me too I've never had a problem selling on a bridge and an extra bulb.
You can pair/unpair a bulb easy enough from the hue app on my phone
lowest price ever according to camelcamelcamel without the sensor

That is *definitely* untrue... I have got 12 Hue colour and 6 Hue white, coming from 4 different starter kits, all running on a single V2 bridge.

You do need to add them using their MAC address via the app, but no different between this and new bulbs.

Are there any other restrictions or things which could cause this?

The link in the OP still works for me.

Excuse my ignorance....but is this worth getting if I have the Hive heating system?! I'm guessing it just means I have to run it off two apps and systems rather than the one? I've been debating about getting the lighting system but wondering whether it's worth waiting for a Hive compatible system.

The link takes you to the E27 starter kit, not the B22. The B22 (bayonet) kit is still £149.

Works for me now using a different browser!

I am just after the motion sensor. Oddly I find the hue bulbs work much better with Apple and Siri than with Amazon echo.

My understanding is that currently you cannot link the hive bulbs together, whereas the hue system you can.
I've bought one of these, and at that price with the sensor, excellent deal!!

Are the movement detectors battery operated?



Yes using 2 AAA batteries

Not the Get Deal button, the link provided in the Op that reads "B22 Bayonet here" The direct link is amazon.co.uk/gp/…-21.

In either case, looks like you managed to get it to work so enjoy your lights!! I also opted for another Hue Bloom at the same time, and keeping an eye on the Lightstrip to see if that drops to what it has previously (around the £40 mark).
Thanks OP, purchased!
Thanks, ordered the bayonet one....even though it will probably result in me having to swap out old dimmer switches for normal switches.

Yes that's the standard colour starter kit. This deal is for that and a motion sensor
Currently house hunting and want to get ready by purchasing stuff like this in advance.

Do all UK homes use the same light fittings? If so, which ones?

If not, how easy are they to change or should I just hold out till I'm actually in a house instead of maybe getting the incorrect fitting bulbs?

Some are screw sockets, some bayonet. You can't be sure till you buy.
