I have been using 1st and 2nd generation Hue bulbs (color and white) for about two years now and I love them so much. These 3rd generation bulbs have much better greens, cyans and blues than previous generations, lending to much better lighting scenes. I use them with my Echo and Google Home for voice-controlled lighting, and IFTTT and my SmartThings hub for automating lights based on time of the day and a bunch of other events.
These bulbs are easy to set up. You plug in the hub, use the app to search for new lights and if they are close enough, the bulbs will be found. If not, you can enter a serial number printed on the bulbs and the app will find them if your hub is too far away from your bulb. You can then control them using the Hue app or any number of third-party Hue apps available on Android or iOS. You can create groups or rooms so it is easier to control multiple lights at once.
If you want to get really fancy with your lights, try IFTTT, Samsung SmartThings Hub, 2nd Generation, Harmony remotes, or the Amazon Echo and Google Home.
Using IFTTT, you can automate your lights based on a ton of conditions and events. Want to turn your lights on and make them blue when rain is detected in your area? You can do that. Want to flash your lights when you get a new e-mail? You can do that, too. And it's free.
SmartThings allows you to integrate these bulbs into your home automation network for controlling the bulbs with inexpensive Z-wave remotes (for example), or turning them on and red when smoke is detected by your Z-wave smoke detector. SmartThings picks up the names that you give the bulbs (Living Room Couch) so they are easy to integrate into your events.
Some Harmony remotes, like the Logitech Harmony Elite Remote Control (915-000256), will allow you to control these bulbs, too. It works great with my Elite and picks up the names that I give the bulbs in the Hue app. I can turn off these bulbs automatically when I hit "watch a movie" on my remote.
You may also want to check out Android apps like Ambieye, where you can set the colors of your rooms using palettes from ColourLovers, or Huerray!, where you can make your lights gently fade between different colors for an animated palette. You can even use the Lightswitch Pro Chrome extension (same as the Ambieye app) to control your lights right from Chrome.
Hue bulbs are expensive, but it is because of how many other things you can integrate them with. If you are a programmer, you can even easily control them in .Net, Python, and other languages, too.
I love my Hues.
When the box arrived, despite being packed better than Amazon usually packs things, one of the bulbs was broken. They sent a replacement with no hassle. I snapped a photo of the guts of the bulb for anyone who (like me) is interested in what’s going on inside.
The kit comes with everything you need to set up three light fixtures. I bought an extra bulb (Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 60W Equivalent Dimmable LED Smart Bulb (Compatible with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Google Assistant)) for the fourth built-in, and though I had some initial difficulty designating which bulbs were which, I was eventually able to change the settings in the Hue app so that I could command individual bulbs exactly the way I wanted. I did not experience any difficulty in getting the Hue hub on our home wireless network, and the app installation on my iPhone when flawlessly as well.
When I first turned on the lights, I got a standard, uniform white light, very close to a typical 60-watt incandescent bulb in flavor and brightness. I used one of the presets on the Hue app, Savanna sunset, to turn everything a soothing orange. I like how, once you get the bulbs in order, the light progresses in tone to produce a natural, sky-like effect across the bookcases. You can control the bulbs individually, if you want, or let Hue choose the motif for you. Of course, there are many other features, such as timers, dimmers, mood inducing effects, too many features to name and describe them all here. My personal favorite is to pick a picture from your own picture roll and use it for a lighting effect. So, recently back from the Chicago Museum of Art, I pulled up a Chagall stained glass window and turned it into an effect (see photos of the actual window and the simulated effect on the built-ins). Even the next door backyard makes a striking motif of varied, contrasting colors in blue and pink (see photo and effect).
Ultimately, this is not so much lighting as it is decorating. I love how easy it is to use, the flexibility and variety it gives you, and the looks and comments as it changes on the fly as the evening goes along. I can hardly wait for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas to roll around so I can instantly “holiday theme” our home, just with the flip of a switch and a click on an app. There are a hundred reasons to give Philips Hue five stars, and if there is a reason to subtract a star, I can neither find it, nor imagine what it might be. I just love these lights.
