They priced these lights so high.
I would like to buy them for my backyard, do they last in the Canadian winter, connectors, cables and lights?
Hello! Just checking in to see if you have any more input the durability of the outdoor lights now that you've had some time with them. thank you!
Can you replace the bulbs? They don't mention the type of bulbs on the website
How have these stood up in the winter?
What’s the cable length between the lights?
There are many hue alternative apps, some are useless some are good, feel more user-friendly and understandable than philips own app, but philips hue apps is best for firmware update. From alternatives i recommend iConnectHue, some options are in-app purchase, but developer getting paid means he can continue improving and adding functions and longterm support. Most brilliant feature is iOS widget editor for easy light control. And scheduling worked flawlessly once configured in iConnectHue
GREAT LIGHTS BUT REVIEW AT NIGHT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE!
How can you say that these lights work perfect every time, when you also mentioned that you couldn’t get the timer or light schedule to work?
Thanks for the great review
Hey there. I was wondering if you or someone figure it out how to deal with the schedule, I am having the same issue with my new outdoor lights. Any suggestion , Advise will be appreciated
These have been listed as "sold out" for months. Any insight into why they aren't available? I've sent them inquiries with no response. I pre-ordered, but my order was abruptly cancelled.
Those lights are so cool… It looks easy to install…
Any update for our Canadian winter yet?
No thanks I’ll go wit LIFX no hub required
Pity they are an absolute rip off!!
Try setting up routines on homekit… it works much better via homekit. Hue’s automation are hit or miss…
Erin, why aren't you in broadcasting? You absolutely have a reporter voice. The only thing I would have changed about your video is maybe incorporate a bit more dog. Having a puppy in the shot humanizes you a bit more. Especially since dogs are animals…
Pro tip: Plug them in first and near your bridge to update the firmware on them before setting them up.
For lights, these are way overpriced.
No review of the outdoor light strip?
Great work by our fellow Canadian blogger! I have the Hue for a year and enjoy the set up, wishing this outdoor would be cheaper to extend the colorful lighting around the house. Thank you for the video, only thing I do notice the audio is not consistence and the outdoor humming sound; if you can improve that I'm sure the experience of this video will be more engaging! Keep up the good work. #Vancouverfilmmaker.
Thanks for a great review with a lot of information. Two Months down the track and how are you going with the timer settings? I'm using the indoor strip lights, love them, enough to light up my small flat, and I've never had it so good! They work with my google home (via an IFTTT applet) very well. Now I'm looking at the outdoor lights and your review was very helpful with that.
Hi Erin, great review, out of curious do you like bigger solar landscape lights ? Something like this https://shoutout.wix.com/so/6dMPXrmVr#/main ?Will you do reviews for this kind of solar lights ? Cheers
Tip.When setting a on and off time you should use the option "other routines" not the "timer" option in the menu.
my biggest problem with these is they will get stolen a lot due to their cost.
Can't wait to try these
IFTTT is best for HUE
Price drop A S A P
I am Phillips you at home which I can send to be too expensive any way but very good. The out door ones are completely overpriced…
Price must come down by 75% to be competitive.
Have you tried using IFTT to control the timers for the lights.?
how close does the bridge have to be to the lights to function correctly?
It’s way cheaper to buy the outdoor spots and then buy the Phillips bulb to fit inside it. I bought the spot for £12 each and the hue bulb to fit in it for £20 white or £49 colour.
If you have samsung smart things, it might be able to work with the schedule. We use smart things for light schedule and it works every time. We pre-ordered the bollard and it says mid July, we should be able to get it, but its almost September, and we still don’t have it. 🙁
Looks great Erin. Those price tags are pretty steep. Hoping for a big boxing day sale.
Very informative, Erin. Great review as always!! Thank you.
