Every shade of a bright idea
The Philips Hue starter kit comes with 2 Hue white light bulbs. Dim the lights and set the mood for a romantic dinner or movie time, wake up to a gradual brightness, or get the full illumination you need for your morning grooming and beauty routine.
Philips Hue smart light bulbs are a breeze to control. Using the Philips Hue app on your smart device, you can dim them with the touch of a button. You can also use the app to set an alarm that triggers the lights to pulsate, or set a timer to turn your lights on and off. Think: creating the impression you're home when you're not.
The starter kit comes with everything you need: 2 Hue A19 smart white LED light bulbs, a bridge modem, power adapter, and Ethernet cable. Installation is super easy. Just screw the bulbs into standard E26 light sockets, plug in the bridge, connect it to your WiFi, and download the Philips Hue app. Just like that, you've got your own smart lighting system that can connect up to 50 lights.
Long-lasting use and great compatibility
The Hue A19 smart LED light bulbs sport a 15,000-hour lifetime, so they're sure to light up your life for a long time. They're also compatible with a wide range of Apple and Android devices.
Work with Nest and works with HomeKit
Ask Siri to turn on your lights or set a scene. Connect with your Nest Cam or smoke alarm (each sold separately) to automatically turn off the lights off when you leave, or flash when smoke or carbon monoxide are detected. Whether it's for added convenience or enhanced safety, integrating Hue with your smart home ecosystem is easy.

Buying the Starter Kit provides great savings compared to buying each component individually! These lights are bright and efficient, and I prefer them over the ambience lights, and the hue color bulbs. I bought these with the lightstrip plus, and I have been enjoying the whole set since.
This system work great, very easy to setup and create your schedules.
Work when you are away from home so you can turn your lights on or off from anywhere.
Pros: If you are looking to venture into home automation, this is the cheapest and easiest way to get your foot wet. The installation process is a breeze. You should be up and running in about 15-20 minutes.
Cons: I'm hoping to get everything connected thru my Apple TV and the new Home app. I still haven't been able to get the scene working on the Home app side esp for leaving the house, even though it works fine on the Hue app. They can also get out of sync between the two, and you have to toggle the lights couple times to get a response from Home app.
Overall: I'm satisfy with my purchase and will continue to use the lights.
It is really easy to use especially when out of home. Can control lights remotely, the mobile app for iOS and Android are both user friendly (I use the app on multiple devices and synchronisation is smooth).
Love the dimming feature. Purchased recently, so haven't received any bills yet but I'm sure it'll reduce the charges over time.
Set up is really easy, all the info needed is within the instructions on app. A must have lighting system for people looking into home automation.
I liked the product very much and it works as expected. I can schedule my lighting by using the hue app. Peace of mind.
I've received my starter kit on time. Great job to the Shipping team and carrier. I confirm that there are some black smudges on the bridge (at the corners); it makes you wonder if there is some kind of recycling going on, but everything works perfectly. Beyond the esthetic, I got it to work on the first trial. Easy, simple and straight forward. Advice: Don't limit yourself to the Philips Hue App, many more exist, with easier UI or effect; free or for a few bucks. Apple Homekit and Siri work as well. It's fun to name the light whatever you want "Hey Siri, Turn off Cortana"... Planning of having fun with another great buy from the Best.
This product is amazing! Could be controlled all over the world! So easy to use!
I love it so much!!! Especially, when I was away I programmed, amazing..
I really appreciate about high-tech! Also very convenient!
I got the kit knowing I wanted to program the light myself but for anyone wanting to use the default HUE software it's not as powerful as you might hope. There are plenty of 3rd party solutions to this just be aware it might cost you a few dollars more.
Contrary to what another reviewer said, the bridge is in fact new, but it did have a smudge on it from the black painted cardboard packaging.
The lights themselves are of a very high build quality and are very bright, I expect these lights to last several years.
The lights are a nice soft colour and work great in my standing lamps. It took about 15 minutes to set them up and create a few pre-set patterns called Scenes. Once this was done, i control the lights using Siri on my iPhone. The 1 thing I do not like about the lights is that my wife's phone is older and cannot use the Hue app. For this reason I will have to buy a Hue switch for about [price]. All things considered, this is a good quality product and I would definitely recommend it.
This was purchased as a front porch light to program in advance or to access from my iPhone. Not wishing to replace the front porch fixture for a motion sensor system, it is programmed to go on around sundown. Now, if we decide to park in front of the house after dark, we can see our way on the walk and to the door.
The second light is installed inside the entry, also for ease of arrival.
The Phillips Hue starter system was easy to set up but took some practice to sort out the timing.
I ordered this starter kit online as a gift for a friend so when i recieved it I didn't open it myself to check if everything is alright. But when my friend opened it a few days later I noticed that the hue bridge that was included in the package was definitely not new. There was a black smudge all over it. I felt very embarrased in front of my friends because it seemed like i bought a second hand gift. I mean the brdige works so at least they didn't include a broken piece but the looks of it was very embarrassing. Did not expect this from bestbuy! I thought they sell new items not used!
I bought this product a couple of weeks ago. It took a bit of time to set it up but it works great. The Geofencing is a really nice feature. When my phone reaches the driveway, my lights turn on and to make it even better, it only happens a night time. I find this product worth every penny
