Masterful marketing that they've somehow convinced people it's worth spending £100 on coloured light bulbs.

Do I need them? No.
Had I ever expected to spend £100 on lightbulbs in my entire life? No.
Am I tempted cus it's on HUKD? Yup.

I would never pay £100 for coloured bulbs.

GU10 is £48.. I pay about 50p thats great marketing skills

i would say there worth it and at this price there really good value I don't even have any sockets left for these and I'm tempted paired with echo these are really useful if uve been thinkin about it I'd snap these up ​

Are b22 to e27 converters good with these?
How much power do they use being in an eternal standby too.

Great price, and worth every penny.

Well worth it I got them on Black Friday from Argos for £75 and ended up getting more white bulbs for the rest of the house.really bright and turning them on and off when I'm down the pub just to annoy the wife at home makes them even better value for money.

We have used the converters on ours and they work fine

What is the range with these? Could I put the hub in the house and the lights in the summerhouse (at the bottom of the garden) and control the lights from the house?

I have wifi in the summerhouse through PLC plugs.

if you've got wifi coverage they'll work

Argh - good deal but I need the bayonet bulbs - heat added

Yes, works fine. I bought my Hue last week when it was on offer and most of my fittings are BC, so bought these;

amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

No issues at all and using Echo too.

IKEA have E27 to BC adapters, great quality to for a quid each.

are these richer colour bulbs?

I honestly think most market research departments have discussion along the lines of 'how much is this worth? okay, double it'. Last I bought LED bulbs I think they were less than a tenner. Throw in a bit of kit that communicates over the mains ring and these should really be in the £50 region.

Though I get the impression Philips is seeing how much they can bleed out of LED lighting. I do like their Livingcolours [or friends of hue for wireless] mood lamps but I've only ever bought one of the Micro ones since they're so darn pricey.

​Hue bulbs don't use wi-fi, the hub is connected through a wired connection to your internet router and then the hub connects to the bulbs via a Bluetooth connection called zigbee. no WiFi involved.

Just bought another, sure I did not need it, but got one anyway, Heat added.

Indeed - they use zigbee - and operate on a mesh network so if the max distance was 10 meteres and you had a hub and two bulbs 10 meteres between each (20 metres from hub to last bulb) they all work

​That's what I was going to say may need a bulb between as they talk to each other so pass on the requests to change. Have thought about how far my range could be too. Got a few in house now and not seen any issues

Great price!

Hot! New richer color version but adapters will do the trick.

now get an Amazon echo and you can talk to the lights !

Or an iPhone...

I wish they'd have the GU10 starter kit at that price. We need 6 of the bloody things.

I've done it in reverse! Bought the Echo and now got Hue lights and Harmony remote.

There's no room for rational logical thinking here, earn more money and buy more ****, it's the only way.

Sorry but I think I'll buy some different colour shades, and swap between them when I want a different colour, and save myself some money.

It's amazing how quickly it becomes the norm and how handy it can be when carrying stuff. Much better than having to find my phone and quicker.

Does this mean my plan of hub in house and lights in summerhouse is unlikely to work?

Great find thx for sharing.

Everyone has a particular thing they spend their cash on. For instance people who are amazed that people spend money on coloured lights probably think nothing of spending £100 on booze over a Friday/Saturday night. At least people that bought this have something to show for their money.

Bluetooth has a range of anything between 35m and 100m.



These aren’t bluetooth so has nothing to do with it

If you have PLC then I’d advise getting a hub just for your summer house using PLC > switch (outputting to both your wifi and philips hue bridge) and then they will work fine
