  1. I have a question about the Philips Hue Bulb. I am changing the location of the bulb from one room to the other because I bought more bulbs. Alexa echo show says it finds no new devices. How do I make the bulbs recognizable in a new light socket when it has previously been in another?

  2. The widgets also work great. You can control the lights from your phone from the lock screen, which makes it really fast to changed screens without unlocking your phone or even finding the app!

  3. Pfft these lights are a rip off. I bought some multicolored led Bluetooth bulbs for $10. and they're just as good. Lol jk the $10. Bulbs I bought are trash compared to hue. Lol. Don't really need hue though. 😁

  4. I have added Philips Hue white lights to my four main rooms of my apartment, and I really enjoy using them. I have also just added 3 Philips Hue motion sensors, and it is both fun and convenient to have the lights turn on when you enter a room and turn off after a set time. In the future, I plan to have the colored lights installed in my living room. Can't wait.

  5. I've had a lot of problems with Philips Hue, they can actually be very frustrating. The support for the more complex issues isn't fantastic.

    That said though, I'm really glad to have Hue bulbs, only got a few because they are incredibly expensive, but they let me automate my house and it's amazing how good lighting can influence the mood you are in, whether that be bright whites to wake up, dim ambience for the evening, or some bright colours just because you can.

    The colour bulbs are definitely worth getting with the start kit, but after that I wouldn't bother with many more and just get the Ambience ones. The only time you're likely to use a green/blue/red/etc is just for the novelty factor
