      Returning

This was something that worked without issue bef Phillips decided about a week ago to push an update that broke support for 3rd party bulbs without any warning. This was something that worked without issue before with bulbs from Cree, GE and others. Before this "update" Siri was able to control all of my Cree bulbs just like my Hue bulbs. Phillips just pushed out anothe update this week to restore some access to 3rd party bulbs but they are still not visible to HomeKit and according to new info from Phillips, this is intentional. They say it's because the 3rd party bulbs are not HomeKit certified, but that's bologna because none of the bulbs are HomeKit certified, not even Phillips, only the hubs are. The bulbs are just Zigbee ZLL. I will be returning this hub and waiting for one that works with all ZLL certified lights. Also choosing not to reward a company that changes functionality without warning in an effort to sell more of their own "expensive razor blades."

      HomeKit and Hue not ready for prime time

      I eagerly bought this bridge thinking that it would be worth the $40 to be able to say things like "turn on all my lights" or "turn off office lights," but the I eagerly bought this bridge thinking that it would be worth the $40 to be able to say things like "turn on all my lights" or "turn off office lights," but the functionality isn't there. First off, whenever I say "turn on/off all my lights," Siri ALWAYS asks for a confirmation. The time it doesn't ask for a confirmation, it says, "sorry, I could not find any lights". After about ten minutes hoping that everything would just magically start working, I decided to return the bridge. In the future, maybe there'll be better support but for right now, I'd say hold off.

      Philips HUE Bridge works great!

      I'm not sure why there are so many negative reviews of the Philips HUE Bridge. I installed the bridge, have hooked up lights and even a HUE Lightstrip Plus, an I'm not sure why there are so many negative reviews of the Philips HUE Bridge. I installed the bridge, have hooked up lights and even a HUE Lightstrip Plus, and it works great! I have a large house, and the single bridge reaches all of my devices within the entire house. Even though I gave the bridge 5 stars, the Philips App for my iPhone is the worst App I have ever used! Their iPhone App would get only 1 star. I had to use many Google searches to even get it to work. and it was not very helpful in setting up the system. In fact, the Apple HomeKit has better control over the HUE system than their own native App!

      Bad design

      I wanted to let you know that in case of power failure all your HUE bulbs will be powered on automatically when the power is back! So if you have a power failur I wanted to let you know that in case of power failure all your HUE bulbs will be powered on automatically when the power is back! So if you have a power failure at 4am, all bulbs at 100%. Well. Sorry Philips but no way! I have investigated on the Internet and it seems the problem has been reported back in 2015. Perhaps it's time to work on it?

      How hard is it to code in standalone remote access feature straight into your hub. Come on guys! Even a door bell provides remote access!! My security alarm a How hard is it to code in standalone remote access feature straight into your hub. Come on guys! Even a door bell provides remote access!! My security alarm and TV PVR has remote access. All you guys can do is force us to have a proxy like AppleTV or an extra iPhone or iPad sitting at home before we can remotely access the lights. And why do I lose my light settings and it goes back to default? Need to take HMI 101 course guys! Or hire some competent developers/designers/QA with customers in mind.
