This starter set contains a Hue Bridge (more on which in a minute), two screw light bulbs, and both a power cable and an ethernet cable for the bridge. The instructions for setup were brief and fairly simple. I replaced the two bulbs in our living room with the two supplied Hue bulbs, plugged the Hue bridge into the mains next to our wireless router, and then connected the bridge to the hub using the ethernet cable supplied. The next step was to download the Hue app for my iPhone; once this is installed, you simply open the app, choose "find bridge", and this is detected; you then choose "find lights", give the lights a name, and you're good to go. It couldn't be simpler.
I've seen elsewhere that some people don't like the Hue app and prefer other third party ones, but I'm quite happy with it. You can group lights into "scenes" so that you can turn a scene (ie a group of lights) on and off simultaneously, dim bulbs (you don't need a dimmer switch - the app and the Hue bulbs handle all that), and cash even set timers so that the lights come on at certain times - even if you're not at home; all that is needed is for your router to be on, and the Hue bridge turned on and connected.Read more ›
Reliable Hue system
Established and trusted brand
Good lumens output
Uses its own mesh network instead of your wifi
What’s not so good:
Not the full ‘Hue’ experience without colours
Would benefit from system feedback about wireless range
Bulbs are REALLY expensive - relatively speaking
Some initial setting-up hiccups
I've been wanting a Philips Hue system for some time, having quite a ‘Smart’ home already in many respects. Now that the range has evolved with a more modern hub and a second generation of bulb technology, I am happy to have taken the plunge and this is a relatively low-cost entry product to get you started. The big downside to this pack (if it makes a difference to you) is that this set includes bulbs that only offer white light as opposed to the spectrum of colour that go with the ‘Hue’ name.
The pack includes the new v2 hub device which needs mains power and a wired network connection to your router, plus 2x of the new white bulbs - and in the case of this pack their have ES bulb fitments as opposed to the more common BC bulb fitments. Obviously you will likely pick the pack that contains the fitments type you require, but adapters can be bought cheaply enough provided they leave enough room in your lamp of choice. The bulbs are pre-paired to the hub, so you simply need to follow the instructions to get the hub up and running. My hub did have a few hiccups getting going, after the Hue app on my phone said it was updating the hub, only for it to fail on numerous occasions. Eventually it worked. A reset of my router and a bit of a network tidy up got things running tickety-boo.
Hub updating aside, there were two other issues I came across.Read more ›
Purchased this set for one main reason - to make a daylight alarm clock.
£200 for a decent, smartphone driven, daylight alarm clock to wake us up slowly and naturally in the morning.
£60 for a Phillips hue starter kit, shove the bulb in an existing bedside lamp, link the app and you've got yourself a fully functioning daylight alarm!
First time using it this morning, set the alarm for a 30 minute fade in time so it starts off dull and gets brighter (like the sun rising).
Woke up before my normal alarm went off, much easier to actually wake up and would recommend setting one up yourself, especially if you've got a dark bedroom.
The Hue app is good and I expect will only get better with future releases. Not particularly seamless when you leave your home (and wifi), it lags a bit when jumping between 3G and wifi. Won't notice it in daily use as obviously, having only had this for a few days, I won't be switching my lights on and off all the time just for the hell of it!
Recommend getting the IF app which adds further automation to your home lighting system. I've got it set to pick up on my location so as I arrive home, the lights turn on. The hue app does this as well but with the IF app you can set different parameters as well.
The white light bulbs seem good value, the light is nice and bright with a nice warm glow. The colour changing bulbs on the other hand and the GU10's are extremely pricey (£50 a pop!?) and unless you really want a tacky disco look in your house I think a simple white bulb would be best for most.
