Add a Philips Hue white bulb to your system and enhance your home with warm white lighting that you can dim and control remotely. Automate your lights to make it seem like you're home when you're not or set timers.

Philips Hue can make it seem like you're at home when you're not, using the schedule function in the Philips Hue app. Set the lights to come on at a pre-set time, so the lights are on when you arrive home. You can even set rooms to light up at different times. And of course, you can let the lights turn off gradually in the night, so you never have to worry whether you've left any lights on.

Are the ambiance bulbs really worth the extra price? I'm renovating a property. I need 48 bulbs in total (ouch) 9 of which will be colour and the rest white or white ambiance. Thoughts?

I would say it is as the ambience ones can go from a warm to cool colour, whereas these are fixed at a warm 2700K. So eg in a bathroom or kitchen where you want cooler light I don't think they are the best choice. But on a landing where you might want warmer (and don't need colour) then these are ideal.

Also, I'm sure you're aware, but 48 bulbs is near max that one Hue Bridge can handle so if you want dimmers / sensors etc on top then you will need 2 bridges I believe
Typical Argos none in stock anywhere near me. There will be once the deal finishes.

Thanks for the reply.

The kitchen and living room are all open plan.

The colour ones will be in the ensuite and bathroom (it's a bungalow).

Can't unfortunately find the ambience ones at Argos on offer! Also I believe the ambience ones arent as bright as the standard white?

Curious as I originally used the blue light filter on my phone, drove me nuts so ended up turning it off. Assume the effects are similar with these bulbs?

These are now the old bulbs that Philip's produce that only work with the hue bridge. The new versions now come with built in bluetooth and these will fully replace the older version once the old ones sell out hence the clearance deal. I believe the new ones will work without a bridge and with a bridge if you want it to. 2 newer version GU10s are about £24.00 on Amazon.

Lovely stuff! Very useful, thank you!!
The bridge adds much more capability to the Bluetooth bulbs though.

For high numbers of the fixed colour GU10 bulbs I'd buy IKEA's version which I think are £7 each and can still be added to a Hue Bridge. Wouldn't want to be the person that has to add 48 bulbs to a bridge all in one go.

And having two bridges is useful but not as easy as it sounds, especially if you want to use Google Home\Alexa. You can only operate the one bridge through those assistants.

I've just got a refund on 14 GU10 tradfri bulbs, just within the 365 ikea return window. After a couple of months they wouldnt turn off fully with some of the individual leds flickering and staying lit, I thought it was lost money as I couldnt find the receipt but customer services were able to track it for me. We actually had 9 fail fully in the end. I replaced them all with the Philip's hue hub only GU10s when they were 8 for £79.99 in argos. The ikea ones dont seem to be able to take the 240v contacted to them all the time, I ran them all from hue hub. Maybe they have changed the design as I believe they were pretty new when we got them. Still have some original philips hue E27s and still going strong 5 years later, and so far the hue GU10s are in 3 months constantly powered with no issues. I thought I was just unlucky at first with the tradfri but having so many fail its put me off the ikea bulbs now but my wallet isn't as happy (horror). I'm up to about 35 "things connected to the bridge, by the sounds of it if I keep going it's not going to be easy to extend further!

No stock anywhere near, however they're only £24 on Amazon anyway, some for less in the warehouse.
