Create the perfect ambience
The Philips Hue starter kit comes with 2 Hue white ambiance light bulbs that feature a temperature range of 2200K to 6500K. You can create the feel of a sunset in the living room or set the perfect shade of light and brightness for reading a book in bed. The possibilities are endless.
Philips Hue white ambiance light bulbs are a breeze to control. Using the Philips Hue app on your smart device and the included bridge, you can control your lights from anywhere. 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 white ambiance bulbs, a bridge, and a wireless dimmer switch. Installation is super easy. Just screw the bulbs into standard medium-base light sockets, plug in the bridge, connect it to your Wi-Fi, 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 white ambiance bulbs sport a 25,000-hour expected 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. You can turn your lights on even when you're not home, so it appears as if you are. You can have your bulbs flash when your Nest Protect smoke/CO alarm (sold separately) detects danger. You can program them to flash when motion is detected, when the weather changes, or when a friend tags you via social media.

I'm not sure how to review this one. I like the bulbs - the brightness and temperature work well for my purposes and the bulbs work well in my recessed fixtures. Dimmer works well also.
My issues are with the hub. I don't mind having one, but placement options are limited as you need to physically plug it into your router. If your router is not in a central place in your house, this could be an issue for you. Thankfully it is not for me, but my router is in my living room with all my multimedia equipment, so finding a free plug was an issue.
I'm also not a fan of their app and web interfaces. While the bulbs are not all that complicated to setup, they could have made it a lot simpler to set things up. Some features are available on the app while others are only available on the site for some reason.
Integration with Google Home works the majority of the time and it's nice being able to voice control my lights. IFTTT integration is a bit sketchy at times though. I ended up using 3rd party recipes instead of the Hue ones, and they seemed to work more consistenly (ex having the lights turn on at sunset).
There are a lot of possibilities with these lights and IFTTT though. You can have them blink for missed texts, emails and call. If you have certain Harmony remotes then you can have the lights adjusted a certain way when you start playing movies or watching TV for instance. You can have the lights detect your cell phone and turn on automatically when you get home. Once you have the hub the price of additional light bulbs is pretty reasonable too.
I purchased this starter kit from best buy couple of days ago. It came with new Bridge 2.0 which is compatible with Apple Home Kit, dimmer switch and two new white ambiance bulbs. I was looking for these bulbs which can change temperature to cool as well.
I wish Hue app is better designed. It took me few minutes to figure out on how to migrate old bridge to new one. It should have suggested me right away to migrate old bridge to new one as soon it detected new bridge.
This is my second dimmer switch so it was easy to configure. I am using new bulbs in our master bedroom. I have programmed the bulbs come on early morning at very dim level before I get up. The other big thing is the new bridge. Now I can ask siri to control all lights. It works flawlessly.
Now I have got three color bulbs, two white ambiance bulbs, five white bulbs and one color strip and two dimmer switches. Amazing products.
Just picked up this starter kit to gain some extra light control in my master bedroom. These lights are gorgeous and responsive. There are some amazing features like being able to set wake up and wind down routines, and having temperature control over the individual lights in any room.
I also really appreciate the light switch/remote. The mounting plate can be adhered to any wall, and the switch itself can actually be detached and be used as a remote controller. It's brilliant. This means, I can walk into a room, turn on the light, then take the switch with me to the couch and keep control of my lights there.
I'll be picking up some colour bulbs when the upgraded richer colours are released.
I bought this product because I don't get any natural light in my room and it was really hard to wake up in the mornings.
These lights simulate the sunrise, and for this purpose they really work!
I set them to turn on 30 minutes before my alarm goes off every morning. They slowly get brighter and brighter until its time to wake up - by then, they're completely lit.
My only problem is that the remote control doesn't always work, so I have to manage them through the app. Its not a big deal, but it could be better. Also the app is not very friendly or intuitive in the beginning, but it's ok once you get used to it.
I recommend this product for people who don't have windows in their room, or suffer getting up during the winter.
