I totally forgot about the long install time. Some of the updates can take a while, too. It's just been so long since my initial install.

+Detroit Tech No one mentions the insanely long update times for the initial install! Other than that, my newborn son loves to watch the scenes change and my wife has turned into an Alexa Overlord. And Alfredo. All the way.

Just take a little bit of time to set everything up and you'll love it.

So I have no color Hue lights as of right now. But the biggest perk of having the Hue/Google Home combo was when I had ankle surgery at the beginning of the year. I can not imagine not having voice command during that time. Just being able to speak a command for my lights then hobble to the bathroom, instead of making a blind detour to the light switch. I just recently bought 8 more white Hue bulbs for $60 off Woot. So now I have to figure out where I want them all. Because I have several GE Smart switch on stand by to be installed for the Kitchen, Dinning room and hallways. Cheaper to install a simple smart switch over several bulbs. I love the Hue lights but I sure do hate the high price for the color versions, which keeps me from buying them.

While it's fun to mess with colors, I like the white bulbs due to their price and the simplicity. I don't need my living room to be purple. The voice activation is the reason I have it all. If they were just col, programmable lights, I wouldn't bother.

I'm lazy too when it comes to new features. I forget about them and then months later, its like the coolest thing all over again.

Same! It's the simple things in life like forgetting things and then being happy when you remember then again 😂
