Why would I need this smart bulb?

You can enjoy a range of 16 million RGB colours and shades of white in a range of different colour temperatures from bright daylight at 6,500k to a calm warm at 2,700k.

Is this bulb suitable for me?
The Hive Active Light smart bulb uses a large Bayonet cap fitting (B22 BC) to connect into fittings of the same type. These fittings are generally found on wall mounted or standalone lamps. The wattage output of this bulb is 9.5 watts, which equates to a 60-watt output when compared to a standard filament bulb.

How can I configure this smart bulb?
Use the Hive Active app for your Android or iOS device to remotely configure your smart bulbs. You can utilise features such as scheduling your lighting for set times, dimming or brightening the light or switching off your bulb after a set duration.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Colour range is superb I was hoping to be able to schedule a dimming scale or something similar and maybe a turn off time rather than on/off. Also something to randomly change colour would be nice. I bought it for my 3 year old. She likes the light on when she goes to bed and does absolutely love this light. I used to wake her up sometimes creeping in to turn off the normal light so this works for what I got it for. Maybe/hopefully HiveHome will add some of the above. Its not the bulbs fault, its potential additional functionality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One happy granddaughter I bought this lamp for my youngest granddaughter. It’s been a big hit; she loves experimenting with a different colour every day.
