Top Positive Review
First off my entire home is Hue. The one room I lacked Hue was my guest bathroom that has a rustic decor. I used Edison bulbs that weren??t smart. Enter Hue Edison bulbs. Thank goodness. Now my home is completely Hue, the bulbs look great and I couldn??t be happier. I pair Hue bulbs with a Hue motion sensor in my bathrooms that turn on automatically when someone enters the room. Highly recommended! If you are already using a Hue setup or would like to start, the Edison bulbs are great.
Top Critical Review
These lights look fantastic, when turned off. But when they??re turned on, they emit a disturbing color of orange. It??s like Halloween in my bathroom now. All the wall paint in the room looks weird under the intense orange light. It??s just awful.
Let me say, that I??ve had real Edison bulbs in the past and they emit a soft warm light. I??ve seen LED Edison bulbs on display at Lowe??s and Home Depot and they all have a warm glow. This is what I expected when I bought these bulbs.
After I installed them, the color was so shocking that I thought, surely there are color settings in the app so the light can be adjusted, but nope. The color of these bulbs is not soft white. It would best be described as medium orange. The orange is as intense as a Phillips Hue color changing bulbs.
My wife and I tried to live with these for a week and we just could not get used to them. So, we??re sending all 8 bulbs back and instead of smart bulbs, we??re going to put in smart light switches and go with regular dumb Edison bulbs.
This is a shame. Every bulb in our home is a Phillips Hue. But, these bulbs just have an unacceptable color. I don??t know what Phillips was thinking when they approved the color of the light these bulbs produce. They really could not have picked a worse color.
Customer Questions & Answers
Can I install them outdoor in a driveway? Or its only indoor
Answer: These can be used outdoor and indoor provided they are covered outdoor.
Can you set timers on/off at dusk without having the Hue Hub?
Answer: I automate it using the Hue app. It is a built-in feature, although you’ll need a hub unless you’re using Bluetooth bulbs and you’re in range. I would get the Hub so you can use the features when you aren’t at home or nearby.
Does this work with google assistant?
Answer: Yes it does, and adding them to google home is easier than the other answer thinks. Once added to the ue app, just open google home app and add it to a room. I tend to use the widget for the hue app myself. just tap a button (icon) to turn them on and off without all the talking.
