Gen 2 Hues are crazy bright, the gen 1 was 120 lumens, gen 2 is 1600!

Are you thinking of the Gen 1 light strips? If so, then I agree. If the Gen 2 (which this deal is for), I definitely disagree, as the Hue light strips are very color accurate and bright. I'd be curious to see some side-by-side comparisons. Also, you must have had a faulty bridge, because I've never encountered that issue with bulb connections failing.



Do Hue bulbs work out of the box with ST without a hue hub? In the past, there were workarounds but not out of the box. Curious if that's changed.

Just an FYI, according to Philips there is no such thing as a manufacturer refurb, as they do not refurbish or certify their Hue products. Any refurb must have been done by a reseller, and they will NOT honor any warranty on such items. Confirmed with 2 CSR's and a manager at Philips today.

These LED light strips do not even come close to the color brightness and richness of the Lifx LED light strips plus the stupid Hue bridge ruins all the blub connections if it loses power. Pass!
I am very tempted to get in to smart lighting, never heard of Lifx. How is the pricing? What would you recommend for starting out?

That's why you don't use their bridge and just use SmartThings.

I think Lightify(Sylvania) has the best prices for smart bulbs. You can get them at either Lowes or Menards and with the 11% off makes it better.

How do people typically use these? I have three Gen 4 bulbs and was thinking about getting the light strips, but I kind of lack a creative sense for where to put them since I don't actually have a lightstrip anywhere.

How often does your bridge lose power and your bulbs still work?

Curious too, I never knew that was an option...I thought you had to use HUE HUB no matter what. I'd like to have smart things ,but don't want 2 hubs really....

  • Behind entertainment center for a nice color glow (set at low dim)
  • Above or under kitchen cabinets
  • Behind bed headboard
  • Inside a display case
  • Lighting dark staircases (such as in basement)
  • Under computer desk
  • Running lights for hallway/night light

I highly recommend pairing them with the Hue dimmer switch. Compared to Gen1 strips, these are rated at 1600 watts so they can really light up areas that may not have a light source such as old closets or supplement such as in a basement.

I purchased two strips. One will go behind the bed headboard so I'm not stumbling in the dark since we turn off/on table lamps manually and the other will replace a strip above the kitchen cabinet. I'll move it to provide accent lighting behind a buffet table.

Currently it is not possible to use Hue bulbs without the bridge within SmartThings. This is a feature that may be available in the future. I received this info from the SmartThings staff via SmartThings Community.

Great suggestions, thanks. Do you know if I can pair these on my existing hub or do I need another? Also in regards to the dimmer, I have Google Home which I can talk to to dim them or whatever. I would imagine that would suffice?
