Do I need a Hue Hub to control my lights with an Echo?
With the regular Echo it is necessary to have a Hue Hub in order to control your Hue lights. If you have an EchoPlus device, you will only have access to basic features - on / off / dim /using pre-set scenes.
Can I control Hue lights without a Hue Hub?
Yes, you can either add Hue White bulbs to a dimmer switch (up to 10) or go for a Hue luminaire that is pre-paired with a Hue dimmer. However, this does not work with Hue color lights.
Does the Hue Hub need to be plugged into a router or can it be used with a Wi-Fi connection only?
Yes, for the Hue Hub to work, it necessary for it to be hard-wired into your primary router using the included Ethernet cable.
Do I need internet to control the Hue system?
No. You can hard-wire your Hue Hub into a router without internet. However, this means that you will only have access to your Hue system while at home, not remotely. An internet connection is needed to control your lights remotely.
Can I use my Hue lights outside or in the bathroom?
We recommend only using Hue Outdoor Smart lights outside and special bathroom luminaires in the bathroom as these are tested for those environments.

You cannot control these lights from the Hue app if you're not at home. The app only works if you're within your home's wifi range. Part of the reason why I wanted these is so that I could manually turn on my lights when I'm out of town (to make it look like someone's home). But the Hue app doesn't work that way.
HOWEVER, there is a work around. If you have a Google Home or Google Home Mini, you can link the lights to your Google Home app and turn them on and off from there instead. You would have to say "Hey Google, turn on my lights" into your phone, which might look odd to a passing stranger but it does the job.
Another annoying thing is that the hub does not connect to your internet wirelessly. You have no choice but to tether the hub within the distance of the included Ethernet cable, which is about 5 feet.
One more thing that’s kind of odd and, I can’t prove this, but I have a hunch that the bulbs only work with specific lamp assigned numbers on the Hue app. In other words, if you have a pack of four light bulbs, each bulb must be specifically synced to a specific lamp number on the app. For example, when I screwed in the first light bulb and assigned it to White Lamp 1 on the app, it didn’t work. But then I screwed in a different bulb and it worked just fine. And the first one that didn’t work initially worked perfectly once I assigned it to a different lamp number on the app. I couldn't find any markings on the bulbs and there isn't anything in the instructions that bring this up, but like I said, it’s just a hunch.
Now for the Positives:
Despite all of the aforementioned annoyances, at the end of the day, the bulbs are fantastic!
They work perfectly with my Google Home Mini, and they have pretty easy dimming controls.
I linked up two lamps in my living room through Google and now all I have to say is “Hey Google, turn on the Green Lamp” or “Hey Google, turn off the floor lamp” or if I want all the lights in the living room on or off I just say “Hey Google, turn on the living room lights”
These are a fun way to “smarten” up your home and they work great with the Google Home.
Below is my original review from back in Nov 2017:
I've had it for a week now and there are things I like about it, and much more that I don't.
1) Works great with the Hue app as long as I'm home and connected to my WiFi network.
2) Very easy to set up. Install the bulbs, set the light switches to on, plug in the hub, download the app, sync and done.
3) Works with Amazon Echo Dot (some times).
4) Ability to dim my lights without having to install a dimmer switch. Can set any brightness I like depending on mood or any occasion.
5) Can set schedules of when to turn on and off lights based on geographical location and time zone. Cool little part of the app.
6) Geofencing: Can detect when you're home or away and turn on/off lights as needed or requested.
Ok, now that I've gone through the good, now time for the cons. There are only a few, but to me they severely outweigh the good. The reason for home automation is so that I can control my devices effortlessly, whether I'm home or away. That isn't really so much the case with this right now.
1) As soon as I get out of my home network, it's a painful experience trying to connect through the app, whether on 4G or connected to another WiFi somewhere else. Even being connected through my Google account, has issues staying connected. Can't turn my lights off after I left my house, it's aggravating.
2) Amazon Echo Dot skill works about 25-30% of the time. Almost always I get the response "Philips Hue isn't responding." Some times it'll work after a 30 second delay, but most times when hearing that message it does nothing. Doesn't communicate directly to hub with Amazon Echo devices. Yes, that's right. It goes through Philips instead of being integrated wirelessly through your own home network.
All in all, I probably wouldn't have bought this yet if I had known all this. Would I buy it later down the road knowing these issues would be resolved, definitely yes.
But for now, I'll continue to use it at home only and continue to mutter profane words to myself under my breath every time Alexa says she can't connect to Philips Hue...
I don't see any other reports of this kind of Hue failure on the internet so maybe this is just a one in a million, bad luck experience. Your mileage may vary.
I'll edit this review and update w/ what Philips and/or Amazon does to make this right.

Los dispositivos HUE funcionan con tecnologia Zigbee, para dispositivos smartHome se usan como tres o mas tecnologias (Z-wave) que no son compatibles entre si, el puente/bridge de HUE utiliza zibgee para recibir señal de Alexa o un smartpone y enviarla a cada foco. La misma tecnologia la usa el bridge que viene dentro del Echo Plus, si compras dispositivos que funcionen con Zigbee, unicamente necesitarias tener un bridge, ya sea el Echo Plus, HUE o cualquier marca y sirve para conectar 50 dispositivos(focos/switches/etc).
Entendiendo el alcance, ya uno se da cuenta que el precio es razonable y no tan excesivo como la primer impresion.
Philips tiene excelente calidad y los focos te dan muchisima iluminacion cada uno, en el caso de focos de color tambien son excelentes ya que no pierden intensidad. (otras marcas como merkury el 100%color = 15%blanco)
En cuanto a la aplicación y facilidad de control, son excelentes, tenemos configuración para que se prendan a cierto horario y no nos han fallado.
There is no worthwhile manual included, in fact I think there is no manual included at all.
It was working fine until this morning and when I wanted to turn on the lights to read tonight, nothing. The widget tells me "Could not connect to the base". All lights are on on the base, I tried reseting my router and the base, still the same connection problem.
Also, the update system is really dumb. ALL the lights must be plugged for the app to update. If you lose, break or don't have enough sockets for the lights to be plugged in at the same time, the update will not work. The app also mention it may take up to 1 hour to update 1 light, no idea if multiple lights can be updated at once or if it is done 1 by 1.
A manual would be great, but I guess in this information age a basic manual and a working product is too much to ask.
Funciona bien para los cuartos donde hay un Echo o similar para activar las luces. Para otros casos como el baño o cocina (donde no tengo un Echo) recomiendo agregar los sensores de movimiento. Incluso, podría servir solamente el starter pack con los sensores sin necesidad de Echo. En fin, si deseas automatizar una parte de tu hogar es buena opción.
El único detalle es que la luz no es realmente blanca, es amarilla. En lo personal prefiero la blanca, pero al máximo brillo no está tan mal.
Se puede controlar perfectamente todos los focos desde la app, con el bridge y con alexa. Sin problemas compraría mas del kit HUE.
Lo recomiendo 100%
Me acabo de casar con la marca Philips en cuanto a iluminación
