Philips Hue Lux review

 

Philips Hue LEDs come with two main draws: smart, app-enabled lighting control, and a color-changing novelty factor. However, at $60 per bulb and $200 for a three-bulb starter kit (£50 and £180 in the UK, not yet available in Australia), they're also...

The Philips Hue Lux LEDs don't change color, but they do offer an affordable smart lighting entry point. Direct integration with IFTTT and a well-polished app make for a more feature-rich experience than you'll get with other kits.

The Hue Lux LEDs aren't "color tunable" like some recent competitors, meaning that you're locked in at a yellowy 2,700 K.

These bulbs make the appealing world of Philips Hue lighting more accessible than ever before. At $30 each, they're definitely worth considering.
