Philips HUE A19 Smart LED Starter Kit - White
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.

- Good starter for home automation- April 16, 2017
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.

- Exceeds All Expectations- March 31, 2021
I had read some many mixed reviews on the Hue line but decided to pick this starter kit up as the price, with the Hue Bridge at less than what it sells by itself (plus 2 lights) was hard to pass. The setup was seamless and quick! The lights are quite bright, brighter than I had expected and smooth with the dimming feature. Works perfectly with My Homekit setup and the App links directly with Hoemkit as well, which is an added plus that saves time. I hope my review helps those on the fence with the Hue line as I myself and just waiting to save up some more to buy the light bars and other colored lights to complete my setup.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

- glad I quit being stubborn and converted- August 16, 2017
We have several smart home devices in our home. We run Google home, Amazon Alexa echo, Samsung SmartThings. I initially avoided this setup because I did not want to add another Hub to our setup. After trying other platforms such as WeMo & Crew bulbs, I finally decided to break down and give it a try. We purchased the Philips Hue first. Of course, we needed the Hub to set it up. Purchased this kit to get The Hub and a few light bulbs. I am so glad we made the conversion. We will probably be switching out all of our light switches and lighting to this system. The user app is way more user-friendly. Lots more options. It is just a cleaner set up.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
