Make it seem like you're home when you're not or just for convenience. When away, use the app to check if you mistakenly left lights on, or have them turn on for your arrival home.

    Philips Hue White & Color Ambiance Starter Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need more lights to add to my setup I have seen the hue product line online and on YouTube, seeing the various setups has been more than enough to convince me to get the starter set and expand it. Not much is needed for the holidays now, especially with the third party apps that work with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super easy to setup and use I have used other brands of this type of WiFi lighting. So far, this has been the easiest to setup, the easiest to use and the most reliable WiFi lighting system. I also love the versatility of the lights. We have several different lights connected. Some are simple and some are more fancy. They all work beautifully. individually or all together. Thanks!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a start but needs to do more as a system This system (not just the starter pack but all the other system packs) could include and do so much more both in function and optional accessories. Like a remote operated wall plug for plug in lights (for wall pictures etc). The app has a bunch of preset mood options that Id rarely use. But if you'd like to turn on, dim or brighten lights with out going there to do it (like porch lights). This is your product. The bulbs turn any lamp in to a dim-able lamp. The bulbs are conveniently not large and very easy on the eyes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hardware, but lacking on the application control side. I purchased a hue starter kit in December of 2013 as a result of an increasing light sensitivity issue. The capabilities to change both color and brightness was a major draw for me. With incandescent bulbs becoming a specialty item and most LED bulbs having the wrong color/brightness combinations, hue has been a hit! The initial setup was a breeze and we used three bulbs in the living room. Our experience was so positive that we have since bought bulbs for the remainder of the house. Herein lies the major weakness of the hue system. As you add more bulbs to the system, it becomes more challenging to manage bulbs at a room level. There is no simple way to turn on and off lights per room without doing it a bulb at a time, or using a theme that impacts other lights in the system. Another issue with the app is when bulbs use a similar or same color. The bulbs become grouped together which is great for controlling all bulbs in a group, but not when I have the same color used in bulbs in different rooms. Breaking apart the group in the app is cumbersome and only can be done through the iPad version, not the iPhone version. A number of third-party apps are available on the Apple Store to address some of these shortfalls, but I've yet to see an app that really handles all the capabilities of this awesome hardware. The third-party apps do an adequate job in handling the controls, but it is definitely something that I note as a "buyer beware" item when folks ask about my experiences with the product. Lastly, there's the price of the bulb. Given the personal medical issue, I consider the investment in the bulb worth it. If I didn't have the medical issue, I likely still would have bought a number of bulbs, but not the entire house. Overall, great hardware. App needs to understand the consumer's usage. Price could be a little bit less to make the total house investment more attractive.
