So i bought this for my bedroom because so many times I have gotten into bed & forgot to turn the light off. With the rest of my room 'smart' I thought I may as well grab a lightbulb for my bedroom & office.
It does exactly as I wanted, I just tell alexa to turn off the light and its off. It also has a bunch of features I am sure people will get a lot of use out of.
i bought this to use with my alexa echo (gen2) and there wasn't any issues pairing nor have i ever had an issue with the globe itself. the difference temperature colours are a nice touch and i definitely recommend this one over the cool/warm only variant.
I have placed it in a loungeroom ornament of mine which is a horse drawn carriage, it really brightens it up and I love how I can change the colours when I want to and the fact that the bulb does not get hot can be left on and does not use much electricity.
I work in I.T. and I found these things a pain to set up. They say that the Hue Hub isn't required but in order to get the globes to work properly with google nest / assistant, you need to use the hub as it makes life so much easier.
