Philips Hue LightStrip Plus

 

The LightStrip Plus is a bright, colorful, and fun addition to the Philips Hue smart lighting ecosystem.

Very bright. Can be extended with additional sets. Easy setup.

Pricey. Requires hub to work.

Conclusion Like other Philips Hue products, the LightStrip Plus offers a wide range of colors and options, and it's easy to place just about anywhere you want. If you're already part of the Philips Hue ecosystem, it's a fun way to add some dramatic...

Battle of the LED light strips: Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus vs. Belkin WeMo + Osram Lightify Flex RGBW

 

LED light strips can be both fun (think synching lights to music under a disco ball) and practical (as I discovered with under-cabinet lighting in the kitchen). Here we compare the two main choices for DIYers in this category: the updated Philips Hue...

Brighter, whiter than original Lightstrip ; HomeKit support (you can use Siri to control your lights) ; Extension strips now available (to a maximum length of 33 feet)

Two-meter strip length is sub-optimal for smaller projects ; First-generation Hue owners must buy second-generation bridge to get HomeKit support ; No real starter kit: Lightstrip does not include wireless bridge

Philips gets serious with its flexible LED strip, giving smart homes an alternative to WeMo accent lighting.

Replacement worked beautifully

 

Strip initially purchased (and which I had cut down) did not work properly- wouldn't turn off and only the slightest colour change. No problems with replacement. Only issue I have with the product is that freestanding 1m strips are not available - as...

Works great with Apple HomeKit

 

I've purchased this Light Strip to integrate to our Philips Hue hub and our Apple HomeKit setup. This light strip is amazing, which works great with an automatic process like arriving home and the option to switch colors is great. The new Hue Apps on...

Just another level of versatility to add to the hue family.

 

I use this lightstrip as a booklight secured to my headboard. It brings a lot to my room, it doesn't look the same with out it. It just changes the look of a room so much and so effortlessly.

Excellent lighting strip

 

Bought for my son as an add on to our hue system, easy to set up, you do need the hue hub to control the colour and dim the lights, but this is a fantastic system and would highly recommend.

Fantastic Product

 

Used this strip around the rear edge of the TV to give a backlit glow. Was very easy to set up. The adhesive that is included on the strip is more than strong enough for most uses but I did have some trouble affixing it at a right angle. Tv looks...
