Still too expensive for bulbs that can last only just over 2 years


15,000 hours at 3 hours a day would get you over 13 years

Good price but the lower price is possibly because new versions with Bluetooth are coming out

How much is reasonable for smart bulbs that last 2 years?

Mine have been running longer than that. I guess it depends on how long they are on.

Normally rated to last 15000 hours a lot longer than normal bulbs and come with two year warranty

The gen 4 versions only last 15000 h, yours are obv the older ones that last 25000 h , , but even still you would have to have them on for about 15h per day to only get 2y out of them

One of mine lasted about three weeks, and it was, frankly, quite a ballache getting Phillips to replace it. From having to search for the right customer service page, to having to respond to repeated stupid questions from customer service, to them only using DHL as couriers, who were themselves a pain in the proverbial. For how much these bulbs cost it should have been a much better experience.

Why would you want Bluetooth in the light bulb?

It’s so they can sell the bulbs without needing the hub.
So new Bluetooth ones are useless if you already have the hub?
Typical, ordered a twin pack yesterday for this triple pack to appear for the same price!

Fortunately being Amazon managed to cancel the order before final delivery and re-ordered.

Cheers OP you just got me a free spare bulb

If you have any spare you’re not trying hard enough

AIUI they are compatible with the hub, but also connectible by Bluetooth.

So that you don’t need a hub to operate the lights.

Hub is £15-30, or free, depending on deal.
ZigBee is way more power efficient than Bluetooth and supports meshing. It is designed for this, unlike Bluetooth.

Bluetooth for lights? But how will it work with 10-50 bulbs in 3-4 bedroom house?

If that were the case Philips would give a warranty based on usage, not years. I bought my first bulbs December 2016 (2 1/2 years old) and the first two have just gone, with Philips saying 'tough luck'. At a guess they were on for around 3-4 hours a day average across the year

quick edit to clarify - I've been a big fan of Hue bulbs due to their quality; we've got them in every bedroom, all downstairs lamps, hall, landing and bathroom spotlights, so around 20 bulbs in total. It's just fair warning that their advertised hours are wildly optimistic unless I've been exceptionally unlucky. I certainly won't buy colour bulbs again, but the white and ambience are closer to what would reasonably last five years on average, not ten

One of mine only lasted 6 months.
I dropped it on the floor and it smashed 😡

I think the Bluetooth is there to simplify the initial setup and for customers to setup a basic set of lights without having to have a hub.

Then For people who want more lights and more features they can add a hub.

Totally agree with you. I actually have a hub and prefer it as it’s super stable. I think adding bluetooth is just a way to lower the barrier to entry to these products but not in any way a sustainable protocol for home automation.
From what I understand, the latest versions of Bluetooth are more than capable of greater ranges and use hardly any power. Whether that's more efficient than Zigbee.. who knows.

Personally, it's no use to me and I don't see the appeal, but perhaps for someone who only wants one or two bulbs then this might be useful (although if that's the case then they might as well get some cheapo jobs from eBay)

Anyway, great deal. Especially for the E14s that are rarely on offer.
