What do I get with this Philips Hue product?
This Philips Hue white and colour ambience starter kit contains everything you’ll need to get started and turn on your imagination. Discover the amazing things that you can do, with both white and coloured light, now with even richer colours for superior scene setting. You are provided the Philips Hue Bridge, all the necessary cables, and three B22 bulbs. The Philips Hue Bridge can support up to 50 Philips Hue bulbs and up to seven Philips Hue accessories, such as the Hue Tap switch. The Hue Tap switch is an accessory that you can add to the Philips Hue wireless lighting system so that you can control your Hue lights without the use of your smart device. You can switch your lights on remotely if you are working late and now, with geofencing technology, you can even set your lights to welcome you home, or switch off automatically when you leave.

What can I do with the Philips Hue lights in my home?
Choose from 16 million colours and play with your lights in the Hue app to match the light perfectly with both your mood and the occasion. Pick out the key colours of your favourite photo or artwork, and match the lights to the colour scheme. You can also save your favourite light settings and combinations so that you can recall them whenever you want with just a tap of the finger.

Create the perfect ambience for any moment with a range of beautiful natural whites. You can use the Philips Hue app to set any shade of white light imaginable, from a cool energising daylight to a relaxing warm tone. Take total control by setting not the tone and the brightness so that it’s perfect for you at any given moment.

The gradually increasing light intensity gives you the feeling that you are waking naturally, with the sunrise, rather than the rude awakening of an alarm ringing out of nowhere. This will help ease your sleeping routine and wake up gently for a fresher start to each and every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bulbs Replaced LIFX with the Philips Hue. The new Brighter bulbs are brilliant and they never lose connection. Lots of 3rd party apps to use with them making them a must for any smart home set up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great software Software is what is making this product so great. There is so many options to choose from when setting up something like schedule the lights to come on at certain times or change colours when are in a different mood. What's also so brilliant is that software is constantly being updated and improved. You get new features and better performance out of device all the time and this is just Philips. You also have option to try out the third party software.

How many colour bulbs are in this set? How many just white? Do you do a set with just colour bulbs?

Asked by: SBarr
All bulbs in this set are white and colour, meaning all bulbs do colour as well as white when needed

Are these the new 3rd generation "richer colour" Hue bulbs that were released very recently?

Asked by: Scott
This stock is constantly replenishing, however it would be impossible to speculate which version of the bulb would be shipped from our warehouse. If you feel this would be a concern I would recommend a purchase over the counter in one of our stores where you can check the bulb version before purchase
