Product overview

• Compatible with Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomeKit
• An extra light bulb to add to your Philips Hue ecosystem
• Straightforward installation – plug in and link to the Hue Bridge
• Runs on 9.5W of energy and gives off 800 lumens of light
• Comes in a standard E27 Edison screw fitting

What can I do with this light bulb?
Use this light bulb to grow your existing Philips Hue ecosystem. It is the same light bulb that is supplied with the Philips Hue White LED Smart Light Bulb Starter Pack – E27 (Order Code: A17UF). The bulb gives off a warm white light at 800 lumens and can be dimmed with the Philips Hue app. It needs to be linked to the Philips Hue Bridge (not included) for the Philips Hue app to be operable, but once linked you can schedule lights to turn on when you’re away and more.

What is the running life of this light bulb?
This light bulb can run for up to 25,000 hours at an A grade energy efficiency rating, which is all thanks to the LED technology used in the bulb. This gives you a light bulb with a small energy footprint that lasts for a long time, saving you money in the long run.

How simple is the installation?
Replace one of your existing lights that are in an E27 Edison screw fitting with this one. Then look on your Philips Hue app for the new bulb to add it to your current lighting setup. This makes the installation straightforward, so you can start to remotely control your new light bulb in a seconds. Once installed setting up the control requires the Hue Bridge (not included) and downloading the Hue App.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Have a number of Hue lights and fittings this is the first white bulb I have purchased for a front porch. In addition to the more usual Hue features I have geosynched this so it comes on as I drive home. Maplins delivery was quick and free, well done Maplin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ability to dim these bulbs are great good brightness and dimmable which is great as cannot use a dimmer wall switch. hubby disabled in a wheelchair and can control all lights in front room with echo plus. saving up for more bulbs. only wish they come in bigger packs than 2 and were a bit cheaper. sync up with echo no problem. cant say about bulb life span but with 2 year guarantee and good brand im real hopeful. plus should bring electric bill down a bit being low wattage

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Although once I would have considered nearly £15 for a bulb to be expensive, in comparison to others - even the updated version of this one it now seems reasonable and does all I wanted from it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Technology that makes sense. Easy to setup, works well with the hue bridge and also the Amazon Echo. The app does everything you need it to do. Very impressed with the functionality and ease of use.

Does this bulb go all colours like blue green ect or is that only the ambiance hue colour or does this one have that feature to? 

Asked by: Troy
Philips Hue bulbs allow you to expand your smart lighting system, offering you wider control and lots of options. Designed for ease of use, you only need to choose from one of the seven pre-set scenes to create dynamic light moods. Each scene is influenced by seasons and nature, offering a myriad of colours and giving you control over the brightness. Outside of the mood lighting scenes, you can set the bulb to any colour from a large palette of hues and tones.
