Each to their own and I understand why people may think this is madness, but if it's just one part of your home automation system then spending a few extra quid on bulbs is neither here nor there in the big picture.As I stated in the OP I've definitely noticed I'm using the Hues for more mood appropriate lighting and find it much much more relaxing.

The dimmers are great for older people, kids, guests in your home who wouldn't even know what to ask Alexa/Google.
It's also handy at night, where if others are in bed I don't have a voice assistant shouting things like "Okay, turning off 3 lights" and waking everyone up.

And in my living room I've got 5 Lights, so using it to set a scene is nice.

Clearly this person doesn't understand Adjacent and Co-Channel Congestion on WiFi networks and why using Zigbee is better.

OK, well id suggest googling but Hue Bulbs and similar use the Zigbee …OK, well id suggest googling but Hue Bulbs and similar use the Zigbee protocol, which is basically a specially developed communications protocol for smart devices, it means you can run 50+ devices with ease.Using something that runs on WiFi, is just going to eat the bandwidth available to it start adding more devices and you reliability and connection is going to struggle to keep up.On top of this, Hue bulbs are brighter and have a better range of colours than something like Wifi bulbs, there are alternatives to Hue that are genuine and run on z-wave but i find the hue system has better compatibility with other devices and also with Alexa or Siri to be fair thought hte colours are a bit gimmickyMy Setup is as follows Living Room Lamps - Hue Ambience Living Room Lights - Hue AmbienceHue DimmerGames Room Lamps & Lights - Hue ColoursHue Dimmeralso a Bat signal connected to a smart plug Hall & Porch - Hue Whites + Motion SensorsLanding - Hue Whites + Motion Sensor + 1 Colour for nightlight3 x Bedrooms Lights - Hue Whites 5 x Bedroom Lamps - Hue Ambience Hue DimmersKids main lights are on 20 minute shutoff timers Kitchen - I've just bought the IKEA Tradfri GU10's, and I intend to put Hue Strips under the counters at some point. Also put a motion sensor in the KitchenI have a Hive Thermostat and I have the kids rooms lamps connected to smart plugs so I can make sure that 30 mins after bedtime things are turned off and cant be turned back on until 6.30amOver Christmas i had the lights on smart plugs with timers set Pretty much the main living areas are all on sunset timers Everything runs from the Main Hue Hub or From Hive Hub, also Alexa Echo in the living room, and Show in the kitchen, with dots in each of the bedrooms and games roomNest on the list is a Ring Doorbell and I am investigating setting up security cameras..So imagine all of that running over Wifi along with everything that isn't on ethernet like Computers, Laptops, Phones, Tablets, Consoles etc..


Aha, ok, thanks for the knowledge. Wow what a great set up you have. I won't ask how much you've spent on that lot! I've only got 4 wifi bulbs, one tplink plug and 2 echo's 2nd generation. I've also got a hue hub with just one light connected to it so my wifi atm is ok but I now understand how all these extras could slow down my internet etc. Thanks again, gotta wait til payday to get more hue bulbs, hoping they'll get even cheaper...

Smart devices need to be on all the time to be controlled whenever you want so the wifi chip needs to be on all the time - wifi chips draw quite some power, why do you think its always top of the list of recommendations to switch off to save battery power in your laptop - you telling me 50 wifi devices on 24 hours a day 365 days a year is not a cause for concern - quite apart from the amount of rf radiation and interference zooming about your house. I am not trying to argue why is it people always just want to argue on social media and forums - i am trying to help by giving you real world info - take it or leave it!

I am an electronics engineer and the number of badly burned usb smart sockets and bulbs I have seen is quite worrying - unless you know something i dont and are an electronics expert i would listen and google it if you doubt it - Smartmeters lol Thats another story - not so smart meters you mean - google inductant load and smartmeter reliability like everything new to the market they are about as reliable as a chocolate tampon dude! From reports over overbilling to underestimating - ask any electrician if he is good he will have a good laugh.

Sadly the ordinary man in the street loves wifi, flashing lights and automation but doesnt actually know the consequences!
You will when someone hijacks your wifi ipcams and blackmails you with videos of your kids in bed or you having "fun" in front of your computer browsing porn lol Understand once someone breaks your wifi whether its a smart bulb or sonos they have control of your entire network and possibly life - very scary.

The switch is really useful. You stick the baseplate to something and it and the actual switch are magnetically attracted to each other. So you can take the switch with you to the sofa. You can program up to 5 scenes for it use every time you press the 'on' key. You can dim/undim any of the scenes with the middle buttons. It's fat more convenient than having to load up the Hue app on your phone.

Seems like all Hue deals for 3 for 2 expired for the New Year

John Lewis have had the bayonet version on offer for some time for 3 bulbs for £22.48, so slightly cheaper, however they are now out of stock. May be worth watching to see if they come back in stock.

m.johnlewis.com/3x-…702

It's been faffing around this price for about a month. The important bit is that the 3 for 2 deal is ending today.

But by the pure power of thought (without getting your bum off the sofa) you can not only turn them on or off -but make pretty patterns too ? Obviously of no practical use , do they impress your guests ? or do they just think "what a pretentious plonker " ? - Still thanks for buying them at this ridiculous price - if anyone actually finds a use for such dross I'll buy some for a fraction of the price in a few months

My youngest son has Duchenne muscular dystrophy and struggles to reach his light switch, and pretty soon, won't be able to at all.

The ability to do things such as turn on his lights, tv, open/close his curtains, simply by using his voice, is goin to be a huge source of indipendance for him.

Please consider all types of people before commenting that things like this are "Just for trying to impress people"

God darn it, I thought 42 bucks was a great price


Ha! I never even noticed that! I was actually poking fun at Ikea for not selling them with a bayonet connector

Original Poster

The white bulbs of Philips Hue are advertised as giving you White (2700 Kelvin) white light, which is warm white. Ikea tradfri bulbs gives light up to Cool White (4500 Kelvin). Its only the Hue White ambience light that can take it up to the range of Cool Daylight (6500 Kelvin) and neither Normal Hue white nor Tradfri range currently give you that facility. The ambiance bulbs are costly. Not everyone needs the cool daylight but that was is my preference as I like that light spectrum, when working.
