I have the 2nd generation hub with the 2nd gen A-19 white bulbs. The only difference between the 2 hubs is Apple Homekit integration. Mine works with Siri but I got mine to use with my Amazon Echo and they work great and the A-19 white bulbs are very bright and down to $15 each once you have a hub.
If you are looking for a Gen1 A19 kit for $125
This exact kit is currently $139.99 in NEW condition on eBay right now with free shipping.
Same kit but the sale here on woot adds an extra A-19 bulb that the eBay sale doesn’t
Does the hub have to go directly into a router, or is it fine with, say, a switch or a network extender?
90-day warranty = slapped together.
It works in a network extender! I have the A-19’s and mine is plugged into a network extender.
Does this first gen kit work with echo?
Follow the link and read the title on Amazon: Says works with Alexa (which is code for Amazon Echo)
I have in ceiling recessed lighting that is limited to 40 watt incandescent bulbs. Can I use these LEDs in them with out burning down my ceiling and myself beneath?
I’ve been waiting for a sale on these forever. Considering BR-30 bulbs are going for $60 each on Amazon, this is a no brainer. The only thing keeping me from ordering this second is trying to figure out how many I want to buy. :c
For once, I wish you had limited it to only 3 and not 6… haha.
What is this? I did. It find the description descriptive.
These should not be used in closed locations such as high hats as they generate a lot of heat, especially these 1st generation bulbs.
What are the security issues involved with these? If a hacker can access your your home network through he pitiful security on things live smart TV’s and refrigerators, I would imagine that a light bulb offers the lowest denominator there is.
Out here in sillycatvalley we have this thing called “the sun” that changes the look and feel of the whole house and grounds as it moves.
It does. I have both a first gen hub/bulbs and an Echo. Alexa is a big clunky, but in general it works great.
Love the whole Hue system, by the way. We have 17 Hue bulbs in our house from floods to lamps to the color spotlights. Love them all.
Colors on the first gen floods and lamp bulbs aren’t so great (true blue and green nonexistent)…But still love it overall.
Here’s a video on their main site for those like me who don’t know what this is. They’re color changing bulbs with smart phone capability.
Qube has wifi color bulbs for $19 each with no hub required. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/world-s-most-affordable-wi-fi-smart-bulb#/
