I use Google Home while my roommate uses Echo. Are we able to use the same lights in our apartment to work with both Alexa and Google. Or only one or the other.

First time I heard about these so called smartlights I was pretty skeptical to ve honest. A collegue of mine showed me how he was able to turn on and off any light in his home all the way from the office. He said he had gradually switched over all his bulbs to smartbulbs within a few weeks. I only got 1 to begin with but ordered another 5 the day after I got it. Especially since he showed me how to get 5 for free if I buy 5. If anyone is interested just drop a comment and I'll hook you up! Gonna turn my whole house into a zoo of lighting haha

Great review my friend. I liked the explanations and the demo. I have quite a few of them myself TC, and I love em. I like the fact that you can control them from my iPhone. ONe really cool feature I use every day, is the auto-on feature. For example; - I have them come on at dusk where I live, and I use the "Savannah Sunset" theme for my living room. That theme is ABSOLUTELY stunning! So whether it's raining, or snowing outside, at dusk I get to enjoy a beautiful sunset in my own home. But the COOLEST feature of these themes is you can set the time duration of how long it takes to "fade-in". . So JUST like a sunset takes its time to go down, your lights will fade in. 5 minutes, 10, up to 30 min I think. - Another favorite of mine is in the morning. I use the lights in addition to my alarm [a soft chime or music cascade]. The lights turn on at, sayyy, 0600hrs. But they don't just turn on bright, they start very dim. . . and gradually get brighter until they arrive at the intensity you set. Lemme tell you gang, it's a fantastic way to wake up in the morning. I wake up relaxed and invigorated. . . know what I mean? And lemme tell you it's better than being punched in the face with an Eddie Van Halen guitar solo eh ? [yes I said "eh?". I'm a Canadian so I get to use that anytime I want lol] ****IF YOU GET THE STARTER KIT, M A K E SURE YOU GET THE STARTER KIT THAT HAS A SMALL LOGO [picture of a hue bulb] ON THE UPPER RIGHT OF THE FRONT OF THE BOX THAT SAYS "RICHER COLORS". VERY IMPORTANT ! ! ! ;) This is seriously a fantastic piece of kit like you said. But the greatest thing about this kit, is; - IT'S SUUUPER EASY TO SET UP GUYS !!!!! IT'S ESSENTIALLY PLUG AND PLAY. - They are LED bulbs, so they are energy friendly, use little to no electricity, and will last a lifetime. super cheap on your electric bill guys n gals - Like TC said, ENDLESS customizable settings and profiles - They are a bit pricey. . . but SSSSOOOOOOO worth it :)) *****LOVED THE MUSIC SCORE YOU USED***** Who is the artist, and the name of the track? AND HOLY HOLY CRAP I'M GETTING SOME LIGHT IDEA SCENARIOS FROM THIS REVIEW OF YOURS ! ! ! ! LOVE THE WARM HUE BEHIND THE SCREEN ! ! LOVE IT !!! sorry.....I'm a philips HUE "light whore" :)) Oh, and one more thing TC. you NOW have another loyal "like", "subscriber", and "notifier" Cheers mate, have a great weekend from Mike on the "other side of the pond" in the Nations Capital of Canada. Sorry for the long post here TC, but I just wanted to help your promotion and get a bit of commission like you said right ?

Hi, great vid, wanted to ask what Amazon Alexa is best to use with the Phillips Hue bulbs/strip? I've been told to get the Echo Plus as it gas Zigbee in it, but then also been told u don't really need that and just go for the Echo. Please if anyone let me know what is best to go for? Also want to mention that in June I'll be purhasing a new tv with Alexa built in.

good video but personally iam not a big fan of philip hue lights i think lifx have the better colours and are alot brighter but just my opinion tho. but what i do like about hue lights what i have seen on other videos and yours is that it has movie syncing and has a lot better music app and this is where lifx are lacking. lifx music visualizer is just random and does not go with the beat of the music which is very disappointing. but for me over all i am lifx person hopefully they will improve there music app and hopefully soon be able to sync with tv.

Did you have to use IFTTT to get Echo to change colors? I have one setup with a Echo dot, and can only turn on/off bulbs/groups, and adjust brightness. Have a second area I wanted to get an Echo spot to control lights, but want to be able to change colors which Google seems to be able to do out of box and seems to need programming with IFTTT for Echo.

Philips used to have a thing called Ambilight in some TVs. And you could configure it either to a solid color or to change color depending on the content displayed. It really elevates the viewing experience during a movie for example. Any idea how one can do that using for example that LED light-strip?

Seems a bit gimicky. Who wants a purple or green room? The only thing I'd want from lights is (1) dimming capability (2) motion sensing so that they turn on when I enter the room and (3) certain lights turning on at certain times of day during certain times of year eg. my hallway light for when I come home from work in the winter. Everything else seems superfluous to me.

Hey it does seem gimmicky but when I watch scary movies I have all myights red for example it fights the movie nicely and then I can even have a couple pulse to the sound to give a bit of an extra feel also when I play instruments like ukulele for example I turn the lights purple blue or orange and it sets the mood to relax and come up with some new songs not for everyone but myself I use it daily
