That is a good deal!
Does anyone ever pay full price for hue?
Probably the same people who pay full price for Dominos pizza.
If you buy your Hue kit like I did just now
and you don’t do this straight after
Then what even are you doing?
Do you not need a bridge anymore?
I keep thinking about these but the initial cost is just so hard to justify to myself
I have one but it’s cheaper to buy the kits and sell the hubs
Included in Starter Kit?
I meant if @anon72173902 is selling his
Not relevant to the thread directly but if you use smile.amazon.co.uk you can pick a charity to donate a small percentage of your amazon purchases to It’s not a lot, but it’s something.
(If you struggle to chose, personally I recommend JDRF UK who are a charity researching a cure and treatment for Type 1 diabetes!)
There is also this starter kit that seems like a good deal which includes an Amazon Echo
2 bulbs for £70? I’ll sit in the dark, thanks!
It’s also the bridge which is worth around £30.
True, but the hub does nothing alone so it’s only value is in conjunction with the bulbs so I’d look at it as a 2 bulb price in the same way.
I find £7.99 expensive for an LED bulb, no way I’m paying £45!
Ah, so the bulbs are “only” £20 each?
Maybe I have a different perception of “worth” to others
I’ve had my Hue lights for a while now, works nicely with Nest Protect and Harmony Remote Hub
Those kits are about £60 in B&Q
I think these might have been returns as this is not the normal hue packaging hence the discount?
An argument I come across all the time.
I’ve had Philips Hue lights for… 8 years now? Whenever they launched in the UK anyway.
Haven’t had to change a single light yet - I’ve bought other lights (LED and Halogen), and I’ve spent more on those as they die.
So £20 might seem a lot initially (because it sounds it), but in the long run, it’ll save you money.
Your experience is different from mine. I replaced a halogen recently which has been in almost daily use since halogen indoor bulbs were a thing (I don’t know how long that is, but it’s a long time).
In fact, I replaced an incandescent bulb recently which gets some daily use for about 3/4 of the year, and that must be 10-15 years old. The replacement halogen bulb was £3, so there’s about 7 of them for one Hue bulb.
I think that Hue bulbs are a great idea, but they are just not worth the expense for me.
