I bought an amazing 10w bulb from ebay for £14.95. You don't need a hub for it and works really well with Google home. It is a great way to try out smart lighting without paying for the extra equipment.
Except the quality and reliability of the hue lights is way better tha the cheap ebay stuff

I don't think people have been clear in their replies. You need a Philips hub to use these lights. A Google Home will compliment them and allow for voice control but it will not facilitate them.

There are cheaper options than don't require hubs but I can't comment on their reliability.

LIFX is the most popular option for non hub use and get good reviews but they are naturally more expensive than an individual Philips bulb.
Am I missing something - how is paying £35 for a SINGLE light bulb a hot deal?

So what if it changes colour, surely its cheaper just to put some quality street wrappers over your eyes if you want to 'create an ambience' - & I'm sure you'll still be able to 'impress the ladies' with the large selection of 'mystery flavoured' chocolates you'll have left over.

.... and how many people have just 1 lampholder in the room - this would cost me around £250 per room!!

Q: Alexa - How much is all this costing me?

How long does the novelty of the coloured light last before you just leave it constantly on warm white and switch it on and off with the light-switch?

Can't think of too many reasons why you'd want a different coloured room - other than to let the neighbours know your mood swings, or when you're watching a porno

I have the colour hue bulbs and I only ever use the white settings. Sometimes the ‘concentrate’, sometimes ‘relax’ but always on the white scale. I do still use alexa to switch on and off though.
We have hue 6 hue bulbs in various rooms and we change the colours all the time. Eg in the lounge start off bright and white as it gets dark then tone them down to a warm cosy orangey glow as it gets later and we want to relax. However, the main reason for having them is to make it look like somebody is home when we aren't around. We have a whole schedule set up in the app that makes it look like people are moving around the house with lights going on and off. Wouldn't be without them personally. We also have a camera in the house and the lights will come on automatically at 100% if the camera detects movement. Maybe not the cheapest way of doing things but 100% reliable. You can also make the lights change colour in time to music if you're having a house party lol.

You've got at least 6 standard full sized bulbs in each of your rooms, but you think these are overpriced?

Something doesn't quite add up.

You've also jumped to a very weird assumption that people have coloured light bulbs solely to "impress the ladies" which I think says quite a lot about you

Errr ... Pack of 5x 9W LED (806lumen) bulbs from Screwfix = £8.99 = £1.80 each, So yes I DO think these are overpriced.
... and could I ask for what reason people buy these overpriced bulbs (if not to impress the ladies)?

I'll leave you wondering. It could only be to impress ladies, I'm sure.

We have them in our house for a few reasons. When I have the footy on, the lights/lamps/strips turn the entire room green. When we have nature doc's on, we turn them orange. Watching Blue Planet? They go blue/indigo.
We have the house set up with the sensors that go with these. When we walk into a room, the lights come on, when we leave a room, they go off.
When on holiday, we log in remotely & switch them on/off every now and then, as well as having them set up to do this automatically too.

It's dead easy to change the lights colours/brightness using Echo speakers - "Alexa, turn the lounge orange" and every bulb in the room does just that.
When we get into bed, "Alexa, it's bed time" - all the lights in the house go off. I almost never use the app on my phone now, as the sensors & Alexa does it all for me.
Of course it's a gadget based eco system, but IMO they are great (but obviously, overpriced).
At no point though, during my buying process did I think about how much it would impress my wife (or any other ladies, for that matter).
If you're happy with white light bulbs @ £1.80 a throw, then that's awesome, perhaps this thread just isn't for you?

I took the plunge changed all my lights to hue the other day! I thought they were overpriced and pointless until I tried them out. I absolutely love them and it really helps with settling toddlers at bed time being able to dim all the lights in the home. If you have money to waste they are fab ! Hopefully they last as long as they say !
On Argos it's 4 bulbs and either a dim switch, motion sensor or dim controller thing for £150 so £10 more than buying of Amazon and getting the additional controls. + Maybe easier for those without prime. Also have the ambiance ones for £100.
Now £42.54
