Any little technical difficulties I've had, Phillips has been very responsive and helpful in fixing the issues. The Hue products have grown a lot since I first bought them and I still plan to buy more! They make life easier!

Siri has been spot-on with my request and even the location triggers I have created, turns on a light if we get home after dark. The only issue I've had was related to a different device. I had to reset everything and setup these bulbs again. We can't wait to add more of these to rest of the house.

      Fantastic product and a breeze to set up. It also includes the new Bridge -- which removes the angst mentioned by others for this and other products in the Hue Fantastic product and a breeze to set up. It also includes the new Bridge -- which removes the angst mentioned by others for this and other products in the Hue range. Gradually Hue-enabling the whole apartment with this as the starter kit - execution has been flawless which gives me the confidence to do this...

      Kit includes old 2nd generation bulbs

      I am a first time Hue user and set-up was easy and functionality of this starter kit was all very good. But, I am very disappointed to discover after my purcha I am a first time Hue user and set-up was easy and functionality of this starter kit was all very good. But, I am very disappointed to discover after my purchase that the kit includes the old 2nd generation bulbs (which don't produce rich / deep green or blue) even though the 3rd generation bulbs were launched 2 years ago in 2016. An important motivation to buy this kit is precisely that my wife and daughter wanted to experiment with blue and purple lighting.

      WASTE!!

      Don't waste your money. This product has probably worked for me a total of a couple of days over the years I've owned it. I've tried every possible troubleshoot Don't waste your money. This product has probably worked for me a total of a couple of days over the years I've owned it. I've tried every possible troubleshooting tip I could find on the internet, and the system is unresponsive. Deleting the app, restarting the whole system, resetting the bridge, literally every possible thing. This is simply a big frustration and waste of money and time. I would not recommend this product to anyone. I'm upset that so much money went to waste. This product has a lot of potential, but it fails continuously.

      NOT 100% WiFi

      I have to connect the Hue Bridge to the my router with an ethernet cord!! And keep it connected with the cord to work. Seriously in 2018. this is a joke. Shou I have to connect the Hue Bridge to the my router with an ethernet cord!! And keep it connected with the cord to work. Seriously in 2018. this is a joke. Should be clear in marketing materials on page this is the case. I just re read nothing about need to connect to router with cable and this must be stored within 3 feet of your router and also need access to additional outlet for this poorly designed bridge to work.
