I picked these up years ago at £12 each


Unfortunately thanks to Backslider the government has banned also banned my time travelling delorean along with electric scooters. Should it become legal again I will be sure to vote this cold and grab them for £12 a pop

Does this need a bridge?

So won't work with just standalone Philips hue bulbs via Amazon?

Is it possible to fully replace standard wall switches by these ones? (yes, I have hue bulbs)

Search for the Samotech switch covers, work brilliantly with these. They go over the top rather than completely replace, so if you ever had to access the regular switch underneath it's very easily done

Actually, no, but hue is really pointless without a bridge. All the power is in the automation, integration and remote control.

Without a bridge, you just pair a bulb or 2 with a dimmer, and for this money, you may as well just buy a normal dimmer switch.

“Does this need a bridge?” is always “no, but”. Totally defeats the object.

No, you can just link it to the bulbs, no need for a bridge. although, you get more functionality out of it if you do have a bridge.

The point is these are often cheaper than £15... such as hue's 3 for 2 offers

Yeah I wish I'd bought more at this price. I thought 4 would have been enough but my Hue addiction is growing.

Whatever you do don’t buy a Hue Go portable light. My worst buy ever: A rechargeable light that gives no indication how much charge it has left. So it’s anyone’s guess if it will turn on when you go to use it! How could they have been so stupid.
I've also bought these covers to use with Hue dimmers on eBay ebay.co.uk/itm…kcQ

Personally I would recommend these, they also do a double version which fits a UK light switch. I've found they are good quality.

I get the point, but it's actually useful to know how low prices are compared to their lowest ever price. Especially for items like these that fluctuate so regularly.

It depends what you use it for. My wife and I have one each plugged in as our bedside lamps which can be set as gradual wake up and falling asleep lights as well as having brighter options for reading, general light, etc. They can then be unplugged for occasional use around the house, e.g. a nice atmospheric colour when she has a bath or if I need a torch-like light somewhere.

What is annoying is that they use a proprietary power source - if they'd been USB it would have made them more easily portable.

Except that Philips Hue prices have been pretty steady since launch, creeping down very slowly, I don't think your house has followed the same pattern.

You sound like you're in the know. Would these work directly with an echo show then? Echo show acts as a bridge doesn't it?

The OP was talking about years ago, not recently.... How useful is it to know what stuff cost years ago? If he said was £12 weeks ago, then fair point. So why you sticking your nose in with something totally irreverent to the original post I do not know ?!?!?!

Not sure why you'd want a dimmer switch to work with the echo show . The v2 hue bulbs (wireless with bluetooth) however do work with echo. I have one paired with echo plus this dimmer switch without the bridge if that helps.

Echo Plus has a Hue Bridge built in, and I suspect, they’ve added that to a few other echo products since, and there have been several shows added since I bought mine.

I vaguely recall someone saying the bridge in the hub had some limitations vs the proper Philips one.

And someone else had them for £9.99 in November.

It's helpful when people point out that is not a particularly good price even if it's the lowest right now. This is the kind of item that most people could wait months to pick up.

This kind of discount on a hue tap would be great, because they never go very low.
