40 per bulb? That's insane. I'll stay with the epic effort of getting off my Duff and flipping the light switch on a BR30 LED that costs 7 dollars.

That's fine for most times. But if you go out and don't return until it's dark, it's cool to have the ability to turn a light on so you're not coming home to a dark house. It's also good for kids that don't like the dark. They can go to bed with the light at a low level and you can turn it down from another room later on. I used to scoff at these bulbs too until I tried it.

You can just buy a smart light switch dimmer instead. $35 per main switch plus addon switches for 3way/4way rooms ends up much cheaper. At $40/bulb it gets pricy especially since most people have more than just 1 recessed light in a room.
I have both and hue goes in rooms where I want to have different colors.. otherwise, I prefer a smart switch since it's cheaper, and using the switch manually won't "break" the smart connectivity.

I only have a few of the Hue bulbs and I got them all on sale. Really isn't a major investment. Super easy to setup and works every time I need it to. And the app is also very easy to use. That is worth it for my money. I had to do zero research and put zero thought into when I want to use it. Pull up app and turn on light.
Again if that other stuff works for you that's fine but I'll spend the $120 and be set. Not sure how long the bulbs last though so that will ultimately determine if it's been worth the money.

Though if you want color for ambiance then hue..

Suggest doing some research on this if you're still interested in Hue. There's an alleged update coming to allow modification of power restore behavior. There's also an app called huedynamic that can be used to disable power cut detection.
Any link where they talk about that?

Leviton Decora Wifi is what I used. They have standard on/off switches, dimming switches that work with single locations, or combined with a remote dimmer for 3 way switch configurations. They require a neutral wire, so you'd have to check your existing electrical as a standard light switch doesn't use the neutral wire. No hub is required for the decora wifi. The wifi supports Google Home and Alexa. If you need Zwave support, they have a different model for that. Same for Apple Home Kit support, it's a different model number.

Lutron makes a smart switch that doesn't require a neutral wire, but requires a add on hub.

Belking Wemo has a standard on/off switch option as well as a dimmer switch option, but they don't support 3 way switches.

GE also makes smart switches.

In my opinion the Leviton and Lutron switches are the best quality. Both can be purchased from your local HD.
All of them require you to replace your existing light switch with the new one, so electrical know how is required.
