A useful but expensive strip of lights
I bought this to add to my other hue lights. An interesting difference: The hue lights always turn on standard white and then yo I bought this to add to my other hue lights. An interesting difference: The hue lights always turn on standard white and then you have to change the colour. The lightstrip always turns on to the colour it was last time it turned off. You also can't group the lightstrip in the same way within the hue app. I installed this as under counter lighting and added it to my home automation system so the lights turn to a warm yellow when I enter the kitchen. Love it! …

Picks up where the lightbulbs left off

I'm familiar with LED s I recently received my light strips and I'm very happy with the quality and characteristics of this light. I'm familiar with LED strips as I've used others for under cabinet lighting. The qualities of the light are very similar to what I've previously experienced with this light type.

The reviews helped me better understand their functions and it set my expectations properly. I LOVE these strips.

I plan on buying two more strips for my kitchen cabinets next. …

That sounds like a cool use case. Unfortunately the LightStrips are not rated for outdoor use.

No, according to Phillips Customer Support:
They informed me (after three attempts to get a defin No, according to Phillips Customer Support:
They informed me (after three attempts to get a definitive answer) that their 2m (1.8m actual size) Friends of Hue Lightstrip cannot be extended by joining any other similar Friends of Hue lightstrip.
They further informed me that the other Lightstrip extender kit they sell which comes with LED Connectors and the other shorter pieces they sell cannot be used with the Friends of Hue Lightstrip.
I want to run a Friends of Hue Lightstrip around a TV Wall Panel which requires 5m but they have stated this cannot be done with the Friends of Hue Product.
The only option appears to be to buy two of the Hue Lightstrips with their separate power supplies at a cost of approx £150 which is incredible considering how cheap other LED Strips cost.
It is unfortunate that you have to buy different strips and use a different app rather than controlling all of the lights and integrating the colours with just the one Hue App. …
