LIFX's lights are as good, if not better, than Philips, and the app is MUCH better. The options for things like automatic lighting and color changes were much more flexible in the LIFX app. Another minor criticism for Philips vs LIFX is that the Philips bulbs seem to have no memory--when they turn on, they always turn on to white. LIFX bulbs turn on to whichever color they were last set at (which is exactly what I want them to do).
Based on my experience, I'd make this recommendation:
- for just a few lights or for lights you would like a lot of flexibility with regarding color or automatic off/on/changing, go with LIFX
- for large installations or for simple lighting needs, use Philips: they work fine and have a slightly better per-bulb price, and operate on a separate network
Myself, despite my second thoughts I'll probably keep the Philips and hope they improve their app; as this technology continues to grow, I like the idea of keeping it on a separate network and I'm assuming that I'll continue to add lights as my future apartments/homes grow and as the technology gets cheaper.
Regardless of the light you choose, I think using it as a wake-up lamp is one of the coolest things (even more so in winter when you can't rely on the sun to wake you up). I've been able to ditch audio alarms and now use the lights to wake me up; it's a much gentler way of getting up in the morning.
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.
So, I hopped on Amazons chat help line figuring I'd have to send it back. Nope, didn't have to send it back! Instead, a replacement set was overnighted free of charge and all I had to do was send back the two leftover bulbs, plus the rest of the replacement kit.
Wow! I was stunned and almost speechless at the stellar customer service. Thank you Amazon!
As far as the lights themselves? Near perfect. The automation is a nice feature and the color range is awesome. At the brightest white which is at 6500K I have to turn them down to 80 percent because they are so bright. The colors are a bit dimmer but that's to be expected. I imagine they will get better as new generations arrive but if anyone is thinking about purchasing these lights right now don't hesitate.
Before I forget, watch some YouTube videos on how to set them up. The instructions are pretty useless so YouTube is your friend. Also, IFTTT (If This Then That) is a great applet program that sets up some neat light scenarios. Hue Labs is another useful website that allows more automation. For instance, I have 2 white only Hue bulbs in my patio light fixture set to turn on from dusk until dawn. That was set up through Hue Labs.
I hope this was helpful and feel free to ask any questions and I will try to answer them!
Setup is as easy as screwing in a light bulb & pushing a button. I haven't had any issues pairing bulbs to my hub or things not showing up in the mobile app (on android or iOS).
The colored-light aspect of these is a little gimmicky, but I suspect if you know what you're doing with colored lights, you could do special things with these. The real magic in these for me is the ability to control the brightness and warmth - they're great for having some light in my living room at night while watching TV & for having some light in the morning while waking up without being blinded. I'm not sure if the white+ambience-only lights can match the range of warm light the Color Ambience bulbs provide, but I'll be picking up a few of those next to give them a try.
This is a fantastic product an great starter kit, well worth the cost at full price if you can afford it.

The bulbs are expected to last 15,000 hours or 15 years (whatever comes first) so that was one reason I could justify the hefty price tag. In addition to that, because they're LED they use a lot less power than incandescent even though they're using wireless connectivity. This is in part to the Zigbee wireless technology that has much lower energy consumption than Bluetooth or WiFi. Another cool thing about Zigbee technology is that it creates a mesh network, so each Philips Hue light bulb will improve the wireless signal of all nearby bulbs. The setup is very easy, simply plug the Hue Bridge using ethernet into your WiFi router and follow the instructions in the Hue App - basically just press the button the Bridge when it asks you to and it'll find the newly installed bulbs no problem. The range is great! I was a bit worried about placing the Bridge in the basement which is directly below where I'm using the Hue bulbs right now, but they work no problem.
The bulbs themselves are not a traditional round A19 bulb, but will fit in the same standard E26 base sockets as A19 bulbs. Even though the shape is different, the light cast from these Philips Hue bulbs is very comparable to standard LED A19 bulbs.
These are the 3rd generation colour bulbs that have "richer colours". I haven't used the other generations, but I'm very happy with the colour palette these bulbs have. For "white" light, you have a broad selection of warm (yellow tint) to bright white (blue tint) options that provide a warm relaxed or more energetic ambiance in the room. The colour range is just phenomenal, with wide range of greens, reds, blues, purples, pinks, oranges, and yellows. The Hue app allows you to select a colour or "scene" for the lights, so you can fine tune the colours to suit whatever you prefer. You can also dim and brighten the bulbs individually or as a "room" (group of bulbs) to suit whatever ambiance you'd prefer as well.
I would highly recommend getting the IFTTT app and Wink apps to improve the functionality of the Hue bulbs. Using IFTTT (which stands for If This Then That) you can do neat things with your Hue bulbs like making them turn blue when the Maple Leafs are playing, change yellow when there is storm warning, or blink when you're on your way home from work so your family is notified you're almost home. IFTTT also integrates with Google Assistant on Android phones that have it and with the Google Home device. Using IFTTT you can set up custom voice commands that adjust your Hue lights like saying "party time" to set the Hue bulbs on a cycle through all the colours or saying "bedtime" to turn off the lights. The possibilities are endless, and it adds so much functionality to this bulbs it's surprising Philips hasn't built it in themselves to their app. I haven't played around with the Wink app yet, but I'm told it allows better integration across Smart Home products, so if you have other devices like a thermostat or WiFi power outlets, you can group them all into the Wink app to configure them more easily.
I'm very happy with this kit. These are truely "smart light bulbs" and this technology is only going to get better with time. Since they last 15 years or 15,000 hours, I think the price point is worth it when you consider the long term. I plan on adding a few more of the white Hue bulbs to my home in places where I don't need the coloured bulbs. But for entertaining areas like in my living room, these bulbs are great. The other more useful features like remote dimming and on/off are really convenient to have. I highly recommend them and I hope that I can have smart bulbs in every light in the house one day - that'd be convenient and very fun.
Creo que fue muy buena compra. La recomiendo.
a. B22 bulbs instead of E27 as mentioned in description and photo.
b. Bridge adapter plug was UK style.
a. Little more energy efficient wrt 2nd Gen Hue A60 bulbs (806 lumens instead of 800 lumens).
b. Little more lighter in weight wrt 2nd Gen Hue A60 bulbs .
a. No difference is observed wrt 2nd Gen Hue A60 bulbs in terms of Blue and Green Colors (or any other color).
Then why to pay double to 2.5 times of 2nd Gen Hue A60 bulbs?
En todas las casas que he rentado en mi vida, siempre hay una instalación eléctrica extraña, no apegada a estándar y muy complicada de automaticar mediante sistemas que requieren estar cableados. Pero la solución de HUE es fácil, rápida y no requiere conectar nada, más que el hub a la luz y a tu ruteador. Configurarlo es una delicia y una diversión desde el inicio. Integrarlo a Apple Homekit no fue difícil, pero requiere un poco de creatividad. El único problema es que ahora vas a querer que todas tus luces sean controlables por HUE.
