To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Installation is a bit challenge with Philip Hues app at the beginning. Once it is up, working very well. It supports both Google and Siri voice control, that is exactly what I was looking for. One downside is that the plug is not fitted to Australia standard.
As these bulbs were advertised with the bluetooth functionality, I had hoped that I would be able to use them without the hub. Unfortunately, the bluetooth does not work unless u are directly underneath the bulb! It became a unless feature. I ended up having to fork out for the hub.
In addition set up was painful.
Having said that with the hub, the bulbs are reliable. Fits well. I love the ability to dim. The colour selections are vast and beautiful. Works well with google and alexa
Second lot i have ordered. My dream od a smart lighting system is getting there. I can now however see that using bluetooth only is not the best having. Multiple bulbs per room and not being sable to group them. Might have to get a bridge reluctantly. They are very nice having different colours in the same room. Easy to set up although alexa doesn’t want to know which is annoying
You don’t need a Bridge and not had problems with Bluetooth as some other reviews suggest. Alexa with turn the lights on and off and dim them, it can change the colour but it’s fairly limited so you’ll need to use the Phillips App to select from the numerous options
