I like how they can be synched with music, tv, or games and just provide a tailored mood for me. Only thing is make sure you have the hue bridge when getting these lights without it your not able to change the lights different colors. They're kinda expensive for everything it was about $150 before taxes. Phillip hue lights claim to last 15 years or 15,000 hrs since they use 80% less power than typical lightbulbs. There are more affordable alternatives such as the Belkin WeMo system which only costs $50 for a Starter Set which doesn't need a bridge or hub but works with it's own app.

Would like to say they are a bit pricey. Could be a little cheaper. They are really responsive, easy to set up. The light is very bright and colorful. The app for them could be improved to work better with them. There are other apps that work with the lights better. Also would be good if you didn’t need a bridge to use them.

I like this product over all. But in the grand scheme of things the price paid vs what you get, is not worth it for me. I use my amazon echo to control them and it works just fine. Another problem I have is the lights on bright white are not as bright as your normal old LED bulbs.

First time I have used a light that is controlled by my phone! Connects easily to my iPhone and I can control the color/brightness from my home screen. Also syncs with my echo (or I have heard it working with other home devices like apple or google). Overall great product!

Ive had these lights for close yo 3 years and they are still going strong. I bought the 3 set from best buy on sale. I love the array of colors and cool ambiance it gives my home and there are MANY apps you can use to customize

After purchasing my first Hue Bridge and few light bulbs, I was extremely excited to see the potential that the Hue had for our household. We ended up replacing almost all our lights thru the house (once they neeed replacement), to make a fully automated lighting household. It has been a seamless transition, and is much more energy efficient! 

An example of how they are used in our house:
Upon waking in the morning, the lights are adapted to the sunrise patterns and accommodate in each room to what we have designated as favorite lighting. Our room has a different lighting for the the other bedrooms, as I awake earlier. Through the day, the lights adjust to our needs in the weekdays, and have a different setting for weekends or holidays. When we leave the house, the lights turn off, and when we return, they are illuminated to a preset setting that also is perfect for our return at night. A press of the Hue Switch or a command to Siri prepares the kitchen for cooking, and turns the office lights off. Or another command makes the house ready for watching a movie and putting the kids to bed (including integrating with our home audio system to play sleepy music). 

All in all, I think I would have a hard time going back to a non-Hue household.

I loved this at first. I love having my lights in the living room red, blue, yellow or whatever color I want. But the very next day, my kitchen light stopped. It says unreachable and we can't figure out how to get it working again. For the money we spent I'm pretty disappointed! I'm waiting to hear back from the company to figure out how to fix it. Otherwise, it's a fun addition to my home

It is so convenient to be able to turn your lights on and off from different rooms from your phone!! They are more expensive than other light bulbs but from my perspective they are well worth the extra money for the quality and convenience.

This kit is amazing. I love mood lighting and wireless technology and this is both in one! Super easy to setup and really makes your place look awesome. Pretty affordable for what you get. I would highly recommend this!

Ok, so cool, y’all. I have it synched with my living room lights only, but have seen people who connect their whole houses with the hub. I am able to keep lights on in the morning when I leave for work so that my sweet doggo isn’t left in the dark. Then, once it’s light outside, I just switch them off from my app.

Is it really worth the high price tag associated with it? I know it integrates to lot of smart devices and lights are excellent but still wanted to know before buying it. How the second generation and third generation compare each other. is it worth the additional cost of upgrade for 3rd gen?
