Colours to reflect every mood
The Philips Hue starter kit comes with 3 Hue light bulbs that feature every shade of white light and all the colours in the spectrum. 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 smart light bulbs are a breeze to control. Using the Philips Hue app on your smart device, you can change tone, contrast, and colour 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: 3 Hue A19 smart LED light bulbs, a bridge modem, and power adapter. Installation is super easy. Just screw the bulbs into standard E26 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 A19 smart LED light bulbs sport a 25,000-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.
Works with Nest and works with HomeKit
Ask Siri to turn on your lights or set a scene. Connect with your Nest Cam or Protect alarm (each sold separately) to automatically turn off the lights when you leave, or flash red if smoke or carbon monoxide are detected. Whether it's for added convenience or enhanced safety, integrating Hue with your smart home ecosystem is easy.

Further to my previous review,I have now expanded my Hue lighting throughout the house and reached the point where I could no longer operate with one bridge. One bridge is supposed to support 50 lights, but I started to experience problems once my network was up to 33 bulbs with 4 motion sensors and 9 dimmer switch units. Installing a second bridge was not difficult, but the second bridge cannot see any of the bulbs. Splitting my network into two logical groups (upstairs & downstairs) was difficult because you need to set up bulbs on the second bridge by entering the individual serial numbers for the bulbs. Once the bulbs were set up on the second bridge, installing dimmers & motion sensors was easy. The app works fine, but it is a bit of a pain having to switch bridges if I want to control lights on another bridge, even though it is on the same network. Just a glitch though, not really a problem because I tend to use the local dimmers for control anyway.
I still rate this as a 5 Star system and remain a fan.
Bought these online, surprisingly quick shipping. However, the bulbs are damaged on arrival, no bubble wrap, no cushioning in box. They just just threw it in with the other things without any kind of protection, these are light bulbs for goodness...
I have converted my entire house to Hue. I started because we were leaving the hall lights on (4 x 40W bulbs) just to provide some light outside my young daughter's bedroom. With 4 x 9.5W bulbs, I set it up with just one bulb on 50% power switching automatically on at sunset and off at sunrise. I estimate a 92% saving in power on just this one example. Overall I reckon the power consumption for lighting my house (a fairly average 4 bedroom house) has been reduced by around 70%. There is a fairly high setup cost, and I reckon on about a 2.5 year payback on my house, and after that it's all savings.
Voice control via Siri is fun, but I'm not planning to expand on the voice control possibilities.
My wife isn't into controlling the lights with a phone app, so in most rooms I fitted the dimmer switches, which takes the phone out of the loop completely. I control several areas that used to get left on (like the porch, the entrance lobby, and the back deck) with motion sensors.
Setting up is incredibly easy. I had just one motion sensor that needed to be reset a couple of times before setup could be completed, and everything else was immediately detected by the app and set up with no issues.
I have a couple of lights that use bulbs that Philips don't produce a Hue version for, but I am hoping that will change sometime in the future.
Reliability seems to be very good. I have had one dimmer switch that needed to be reset and re-installed, but other than that I have had no issues.
Most of my lights are the A19 white lights.I have some GU10 Spots, which seem to be very expensive for what they are, and the colour lamps are great fun but very expensive (I only have two rooms with colour lamps fitted).
Apart from the high setup cost, the only other negative that I can come up with for this product is that Philips do not provide an app for Apple Computers, only for phones, There are some third party apps available for PC/Mac, but they seem to be more focused on using Hue lights as disco lights rather than basic Smart home control.
These lights are fun to use, but NOT worth the price. if they were half of the price, ok.. Way too much money for what It's. Wait a little longer and price will go down!
one of the main selling features for me, as written on the box.. was it can sync with music... And it can, if you use a third party app (pay app, or a 'free' app with in app purchases and ads)
the music sync was a big seller for me because It would amuse my kid.
Intentions are good. System works but there are some flaws. 1- automatisation and timers do not always work as i programmed it. Skips some timers. 2- lights are not as bright as i wanted. I have to buy 2 sets so it doubles the price. Yes, system is nice bit still need tweeking from philips and REALLY not enough lumens.
Quick easy setup, works just like it says, would recommend and will be adding more to my system in the near future, very impressed.
Like the title says, this product is good for dynamic mood lighting. It's also easy to set up. Just plug in the bridge, put in your lights, turn them on and install the app, and you're good to go.
The starter kit comes with 3 bulbs (you can buy more to expand the system later), a bridge and an Ethernet cable to connect the bridge to your Wi-Fi router. Each bulb puts out up to 800 lumens, though this will vary based on colour and brightness settings.
Please note that this is the gen 3 starter kit. If you want deep greens and blues, make sure that the box says "richer colors" in the top-right corner. Gens 1 and 2 don't have as rich of a colour gamut, so keep this in mind.
