Got one from the tat truck and free popcorn :) They must be loosing money on this - surprised if they sold double figures of the bulb when I collected it.


Hallway lights with motion sensor (hue) most simple thing but awesome (after perusing the misses not to touch the switch) day and night they are the brightness I want :) The other lights are best for when I am on holiday or want a bit of light with Alexa's help... i Just ignore the money I spent as it added up slowly lol


It's like all conveniences, they don't sound so great until you have them and wouldn't want to go back. "Why would I need the air conditioning when I could open a window to get proper fresh air!" Personally smart bulbs (at 10 quid a pop, no hub, xiaomi yeelights) added timers so the lights now switch off at 11 without me thinking about it, they also come up slowly in the mornings to wake me up. They turn off when I leave for work. Nothing too amazing so far. It was when I added a Google Home to the mix that they became really useful. A hands-free interface for the lights so when you've just sat down to watch a movie with your other half and you've accidentally left the lights on you can turn off the lights without getting up.


I intend to revisit it in future but with smart-switches rather than smart-bulbs so it's backwards compatible with old-habits. I wouldn't go for these as they're not apple-homekit compatible afaik, I was just talking about smart-lights in general. :)


However, you're not being open minded, to the fact other people find them useful, at all. Most have attempted to explain their situation and you still persist and therefore come across as wanting to pick a fight (or trolling), whereas if you had accepted that some find benefit and then replied "thanks, but I still don't see a use for me", then fine. Your counter arguments about "surely any motion activated light does exactly the same" or "buy a cheap remote controlled light switch" still involve some expense and potential wiring that not everyone is comfortable with, plus this can combine those features for a start, along with the convenience of an app and syncing with existing IFTTT services etc. Likewise, where you questioned why you wanted a light on when you're not in, well plenty of people leave a light on when out for security, or use a lamp with a timer, so this is another pretty obvious benefit that further questioned your intentions. If you think I am being defensive, then fine, but I actually don't have this product myself, but am interested and thinking it could be potentially useful, at the right price.

I had the same issue with the single solar light bulbs from pound shop same design , i just heated up a needle at the bottom to make a small hole which you cant see to let the water out , really badly designed .


These are rubbish. One small led at the top of each bulb. Taking mine back. The B&M Bargain ones are good with several LED's per bulb. Very bright and long lasting.


i bought similar to these from Asda and both sets stopped working, the bulbs actually filled with water believe it or not.

Ordered! Thanks to new Ikea light fittings I’m on all E27’s for the main lights. Thanks OP!


I'm after white ambient as the wife always moans cool is too blue and warm too yellow, with the ambient she can't complain. Don't see the point paying through the nose for colours that'll get used the first day and likely never again unless by accident.


How long do these types of bulbs usually last for? A few years max. or closer to 10? Could someone please take a look at this thread and give me your opinions? https://www.hotukdeals.com/discussions/philips-hue-starter-pack-are-these-two-the-same-product-3004009 Thank you x2

I think TPVision (,new owners of Philips TV division) should buy out Philips Hue division and stop the rip off pricing (their TV range is now supeb value) (cheeky)


Just a word of warning, I had a hue light in an out door porch for a few months. I think the recent heat killed the bulb. Not sure if these ones they are selling for outdoor use are more tolerant of temperatures?


Just got simple Hue ones, they are cheap and really good.


Thank you for this! :) Think I prefer these square designs too, my other option was getting a clear globe style and some Yeelights in there

Just pop it in. Works as a regular bulb until you connect via the app. Once the app connects you can change the colour, etc.


Do we just pop these in and you can change play around with them with remote? Or does wiring or some more installation need to be done?


Will this work with HomeKit thanks


I’ve waited since November 2017 for my order of this bulb to be delivered from China through Gearbest and still waiting... Only just realised and cancelled it. Be warned!

My understanding is that they use most of the input energy (watts) on producing light and wattage does not measure brightness, it measures power consumption. That's the main reason why manufacturers now refer to the lumen value of a bulb. Further even led bulbs are becoming more efficient. So for example you could buy a 5w led bulb (even from the same manufacturer) which be could be much brighter than another 5w led bulb. They only way to know before you purchase the bulb would be where the maker says on the package what the lumens (lm) are.


Oh I thought they flickered at just above 30hz rather than continual illuminance hence the low power requirements. They certainly flicker on video. If not then perhaps I might just book a spot on Dragon's Den.


No, LED's by their very nature are DC (they're a Diode) so at a constant Voltage/current there'll be no flicker. You can check for flicker by looking at one and waving your hand between your eyes and the bulb, if you see multiple outlines of your hand/fingers they're flickering. Perhaps I'm more sensitive to it but the only ones I've found that don't flicker are those above and I don't want to go back to 12V. :(


All LEDs have some flicker hence why they're so energy efficient but i've never noticed that in person. This would be my first flicker LED bulb. I didn't even know they existed! My other bulbs are all the colored/wifi/indoor/outdoor/solar/mains type. Ive ordered mine but I think for £3.10 its worth a punt so you really can't go wrong with this deal.


In my experience (tried a few makes, not loads) they all have a horrible flicker. Except a) BELL 2K ones b) Lumilife 12V LR16 (these obviously need a separate PSU that does a good job of rectifying the mains to DC) Can you recommend any decent 2.7K 240V ones with no flicker? (y)

This is cheaper than 2 bulbs on their own. And only £20 more than the basic white starter kit

Which generally is £60+ (lol)


Only worth what someone is prepared to pay!


I’m liking the bidding war. £50 and I would be tempted 🤭


Cheers for the offer but I’ll pass. We all know how much they are worth. Listed on eBay now (cheeky)

Echo Plus with Hue Bulb £79.99 amazon prime day / lightning deal
Found 16th JulFound 16th Jul
Prime Day Deal- now same price as Refurb was earlier.

Turns out I can control my light bulb with my old Echo because it's linked to the same network as the new Echo+


I've received the bulb today (Echo due tomorrow) but it can't be linked to my Google Home without a bridge. So not much use for me as the Bulb is downstairs and my Echo will be placed upstairs :(


Yeah, Black was then showing as £139 for me yesterday after I'd purchased one. Said I'd already Claimed The Deal.


Why? You can only buy 1 of each lightning deal?


Tempted to get a second one but would have to be white this time as already used the offer on the black one.

So the difference between the two is just a shape?


This is the v2, the v1 hub is round in shape.


What's your difference between a v1 hub and v2 hub?

Thanks, I've been looking for a while now and have been waiting for prime day. This looks like the perfect introduction to the hue world. I nearly went for the £60 with the echo Dot.

Does anyone have a working link for the light strip? Maybe Amazon have stopped selling it as I am only seeing 3rd party sellers now?


Yes, bargain. Dimmers are £15 at the moment which is the cheapest they've been (as far as I'm aware). Worth picking one up if you are putting a lamp in the ceiling then you can put it on the wall using one of these: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Philips-Hue-Dimmer-Remote-UK-Light-Switch-Adapter-Cover-Remote-NOT-Included/253709391142?hash=item3b12421526:g:Gx4AAOSwVB1azQdt


I'm also a student so I can use the £15 off a £60 spend promo code, it would bring this bundle price down to £65. Sounds decent at that price?


On previous deals it was £90 for 3 lamps + bridge or £105 for 3 lamps, bridge and dimmer. You should be looking at paying approx £20 a lamp for colour. Think of the bridge as being worth £30 for resale and the dimmer at £15, then whatever is left over is your lamp cost. A good price for this bundle based on past prices would be £70 for two lamps and the bridge, so £80 isn't terrible but not brilliant. Of course it depends how quick you want the stuff, and it's only £10 :)


I've been looking into getting Hue lights but it's not urgent What would be a better deal to wait for on the bridge and colour bulbs?

Save 15% on all Smart Lighting at Currys!

There could be. When currys last has their sale on the starter kits for 99.97 I tried getting one and couldn't, Kept failing at checkout. I rang and they apologised and told me no more would be coming in. Apparently currys if the price ends in 7 it's end of line stuff so he said sumats new or discontinued.


Not seen anything. If nothing else it's probably just business as usual - when sales start to slow off use promotions to keep sales buoyant (and introduce more customers that may buy more later) ;)


Price check before buying, for example the starter kit mentioned above is £42 on Amazon. EDIT: D'oh, and now they've removed mention of it in the deal post.


Good deal. All these Hue deals at the moment make me wonder if there is a new range coming out? Anyone seen anything suggesting this?
