As the bulb is compatible with dimmers, you can make the right mood lighting for your home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bulbs, work with Samsung Smartthings These bulbs are great value. They work with Smartthings, without the Hive hub. Just connect the bulb to your light fixing and switch on. Use the Smartthings app to find it (it'll appear as Thing). The bulb will be found but will not register properly. Log into your Smartthings account via a web browser find the bulb device (location>home>list devices>select the bulb) and change the type to ZigBee Dimmer and save. Bulb will appear and be fully useable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hive gets my vote The E27 LED hive bulbs work a treat and at £13 were a bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the tin Installed it just outside front door (so it's outside albeit under cover although instructions say for indoor use only). Took couple of attempts to connect to home wifi network - a few minutes. Easy set time options and the brightness. Only regret is Hive don't yet do a smaller bulb something Philips do

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delighted with the one that works! Purchased 2, one didn't work properly (wasn't recognised by hub) but will return to shop for replacement. Delighted with the one that does work. It's lovely having the dimmer feature on a lamp that didn't have that feature before. So quick in setting up for use too.

An it be used as an outdoor light

Asked by: Babs13
This can be used wherever you would be able to use a standard bulb of the same fitting, in this instance it would need to be placed in a suitable weatherproof housing.
