Smart Bulbs (Alexa)

2
Posted 20th Dec 2019
im just getting into home automation, on a small basic level to start.

i have 2 philips hue bulbs (bayonet fitting) and a third gen echo dot, the dot controls the 2 bulbs perfectly.

id like to buy 2 more bulbs, but have rather specific requirements, ideally i need golfball sized e14 fitting, that alexa will also be able to control.

id like to keep costs down as much as possible, (a purchase from amazon being top choice).

anyone able to offer any simple constructive advice please?

Any links or recommendations appreciated

If they're lamps then get smart plugs instead, for ceiling lights get a sonoff basic. You'll get on/off but not dimming this way but it's cheap and you can get whatever bulbs you need then.
