While the technology for these bulbs is not very special anymore and cheaper versions are widely available, I still caution others against budget options because software and connectivity issues remain common in other brands. Hue started off well when I bought the bulbs, and Philips has continued to update and improve on their software support since. Hue is also widely supported by third-party devices and software. Bargain smart bulbs are of comparable quality of light and colors, but if you plan to program your bulbs in any sense---turning on or off on a schedule or based on motion sensors, adjusting colors automatically, etc.---Hue is easily the most reliable option available right now. Worth the money to know that it will do what you want it to do.
Worth noting is the Hue Bridge component, required for use of most features. The bulbs connect to the hub via radio signals, whereas hub-less systems integrate by WiFi for each individual bulb. The hub can make the system seem bulky, but it comes with a few advantages:
- More seamless integration for multiple lights, room setups, etc.
- Better connectivity. Your lights will only disconnect if your internet is down entirely, since the hub is wired in to your network and radio signals from the hub will never have an issue reaching your lights.
- Hypothetically, hub-based systems are more secure since the user must be connected to the home network to access them. My lights are the least of my worries in terms of being hacked, but I suppose it's still nice to know.
- I speculate that hub-less systems draw more power, which would ruin a lot of the appeal of energy-efficient LEDs.
A few tips on making the most of these expensive gadgets:
1. The lights in general are left in the ON position on your light fixtures and controlled solely though software. It is annoying at best to have to control your lights with an app on your phone. This can be avoided by purchasing Hue's dimmer switch, scheduling your lights, or integrating with a Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa device.
2. Hue bulbs are supported by f.lux, a software that filters blue light from your computer screen at night based on your geographic location and your intended wake time. If connected to your Hue bulbs, f.lux will automatically adjust the white balance of your bulbs throughout the day. It transitions more gently than Philips's built-in feature, and updates every 30 seconds so you can use the regular on/off switches on your lighting fixtures and your bulbs will automatically adjust shortly after (last I checked Hue bulbs will default to soft white when turned off and on again, regardless of what you have programmed). Also, f.lux is free!
3. Hue is also supported by IFTTT (also free), which allows you to program your Hue bulbs based on other devices or services you use. For example, my lights will blink to remind me that I have to leave for a meeting coming up in my Google Calendar. There are endless possibilities for these bulbs solely because Hue is supported by so many other apps and devices.
Setting up the lights was easy, but it did take a few minutes longer than I thought it would. I am quite tech savvy, and assumed it would be quicker. So allow yourself a half an hour for full installation. The largest amount of time was spent figuring out which lamp had which numbered lightbulb in it, and then assigning them to their place in the house. You name rooms and the lights. Be careful naming the lights in the rooms. We only have one light in each room, which makes it more difficult when linking to Alexa and Google, because if the light and the room have the same name you have problems.
So name your room “master bedroom” and your light “master bedroom light.” This will make more sense once you go to set it up, but knowing this in advance can save you a little time. I had to go back and re-name the lights. Again this was due to Alexa not due to Phillips. But that is how we use the lights, so it is important.
I do like that both Alexa and Google can control the lights, because we use both. Syncing the lights with Google routines has been a lot of fun and more useful than I thought it would be. Our Google “good night” routine turns off the light, and our Google “good morning” routine turns it on.
You can also turn the lights on and off with your Hue app.
This is great if you are out of town and want to turn the lights on and off. You can also schedule the lights, just like you would with a timer.
Now that we have these I want to add more, and possibly color lights in our backyard. Once you buy the bridge in a starter kit like this, you can simply add more lightbulbs without buying another bridge, up to 50.

Si tienes algún control o algún Hub de Harmony de Logitech, todavía será mucho más amigable el uso ya que los podrás controlar desde tu mismo control.
En resumidas cuentas, si puedes disponer de ~2500 pesos vale mucho la pena, ya después puedes comprar focos de color o focos cuyo color sea estático y los cuales son los más baratos, ahorita están en 290 pesos.
Por qué pongo calificación baja? Porque este sistema que compré para actualizar mi bridge que era de la generación anterior, es usado, en ningún lado especifica que es de segundo uso o reconstruido... tuve que resetearlo para instalar porque ya estaba anteriormente configurado, tache para Amazon o el vendedor, no para Hue.
Aún así venía en buen estado y funcional, pero sí esperaba que fuese nuevo, aún así me lo voy a quedar, a ver si no da lata después.
Solo estén atentos o consideren esto.
A hora si, el producto. Al abrirlo me encontré con 5 accesorios, compré el Kit Básico de Ambiente, donde vienen 4 focos y el puente. La sacarlos los instale y de inmediato encienden, cuando los vi dieron un color que me hizo pensar que no daban la suficiente luz, después de eso me fui a instalar el puente y con la aplicación muy sencilla de manipular me percate que podía incrementar más la luz y pasar de fría a blancs, eso me hizo muy feliz. Al final lo conecte al Google Home y funcionan de maravilla.
No issues at all with installation for me. Bulbs come pre-connected to the hub unlike the awful connecting process that awaits you with Sengled products (they're the worst! Do not buy Sengled at all, horrible company). Plug them into the sockets and connect the hub to an ethernet cable (No wifi, which is a shame) and you can use the app to control your lights that fast.
Alexa works well, no real issues yet. You just need to create rooms in the smart house settings, add the lights and after doing so have not had any issues at all myself.
One thing I wish they would add is the ability to set bulb temperature when making routines. After my lights turn on from a set up routine they always turn on with a warm light (yellow) and I have to change the ones I want to cool light (blue). It would be an easy app update to fix this and there may even be a third party app that can do it.
Overall these are the best smart home bulbs I've used. I just wish I went with them the first time and avoided the rage-inducing cheaper brands. Trust me, it's worth spending the extra money for a hassle free experience.
