Philips 456194 reviews

Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 Starter Kit (Gen 2) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product I must say, although it's expensive, this is probably my favorite purchase in a long time. Hue lights have the power to completely transform your room, painting the walls with tons of different scenes, completely changing the feel of the room. I couldn't be happier with how my setup has turned out! My only complaint is that some colors can be sort of dim (compared to others), however that is just the nature of colored lighting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Product!! I had been using the earlier version for a long time and was very happy with that. Bought this one to upgrade and find it very convenient. Its a nice addition to any room. Can switch on/off the lights from anywhere and hence ensures home safety too in my absence. Gave 4 Stars just because its a little pricey bt definitely recommend it!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it,to expensive, needs better apps I love the philips hue, I will continue to buy it when I can. That being said the product is to expensive and to get more than one bulb at a time you have to purchase a new hub as well. The system seems to work best with ios 9 or higher, unfortunately I am an android person and the sofware or apps I have come across don't cut the mustard. I believe that the philips hue app itself should be able to do what the bulbs say they can do on the box, (ie) sync to music and movies without a 3rd party app

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy it again for all the rooms in my house Works perfect. I can control the bulb on my Android, iPad and through Alexa (the voice commander from Amazon). The integration works perfect. The bulbs are simply superb with all the possible colours. Really great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super easy to setup and use I have used other brands of this type of WiFi lighting. So far, this has been the easiest to setup, the easiest to use and the most reliable WiFi lighting system. I also love the versatility of the lights. We have several different lights connected. Some are simple and some are more fancy. They all work beautifully. individually or all together. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need more lights to add to my setup I have seen the hue product line online and on YouTube, seeing the various setups has been more than enough to convince me to get the starter set and expand it. Not much is needed for the holidays now, especially with the third party apps that work with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible experience. Throughly disappointed. Frustrating to setup. The app is buggy and will not connect to HomeKit on iOS. I bought this to control the lights with Siri but it won't work. Phillips Customer service is a joke.
Date published: 2016-07-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Brightness lesser than expected Brightness of the bulbs are pretty low compared to even some local brand LED lights with same specifications. As expected, green & cyan colors are horrible.
