Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 Starter Kit


The third-generation Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 Starter Kit is costly, but remains the ultimate way to get started with smart lighting in your home.

Highly customizable. Better blues and greens, with improved color consistency, brightness, and longevity over previous bulbs. More intuitive app experience. Lots of fun third-party integrations.

Expensive. Setting Routines could be easier.

If price isn't an issue, however, the Hue White and Color Ambiance are the smart bulbs we recommend. They're easy to install, customize, control remotely, and they integrate with many other devices and services you probably already use. Despite the...

Philips Hue White and Color Ambience Starter Kit A19


Now, thanks to a new version of the Hue Bridge , they'll work with Apple HomeKit , too. A set of smart-home protocols built into iPhone and iPad operating systems, HomeKit brings voice-activated Siri controls into play -- and keeps Philips Hue firmly...

Philips Hue 2.0 adds Apple HomeKit to a long, impressive list of compatible smart home platforms. Sync your bulbs up with your iOS device, and you'll be able to trigger lighting changes by asking Siri.

The second-gen bulbs aren't noticeably better than the old ones, and suffer from many of the same flaws with brightness and color accuracy. The app would have also benefited from an ease-of-use upgrade -- it didn't get one.

Philips Hue's LEDs are still the color-changing bulbs to beat, but they're still awfully expensive -- and the competition is catching up quickly. Apple HomeKit integration is a big step forward for the software, but it's disappointing that the hardware...

Philips Hue review: The pioneer in LED lighting is showing its age


Reliance on the ZigBee protocol can cause range issues, but no company has been in this space longer.

Photo-to-light hue matching feature is endlessly entertaining ; Vibrant colors ; Lots of configurability options, including a clever geofencing system

Disappointing brightness no matter what color you pick ; Non-intuitive app interface ; Major range issues in my installation

Limited range and a clunky mobile interface make Hue a tough sell amidst growing competition.

Philips Hue White Ambiance A19 Starter Kit review: This is the bulb to beat


The Philips Hue White Ambiance is a doppelganger for its color bulb. In fact, the bulbs are identical in appearance, with the exception of fine print written on the heat sink indicating these bulbs are white only. (Even maximum brightness, at 800...

Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance Kit review: Still the market leader


No manufacturer has done more to advance the concept of smart LED bulbs.

Core tech improvements make this one of the best-looking and brightest bulbs on the market ; The redesigned Hue Bridge is less intrusive than the original ; Next-gen features include support for Apple’s Siri and Apple Watch

Nearly as expensive as the first-generation Hue ; We experienced some hiccups during setup; the app still has room for improvement ; Hue is all business: There are no native “fun” features
