Philips Has New Hue Bluetooth Bulbs. Should You Get Them? by Saocv(1): Fri Jun 2019 11:27am
Philips Hue is by far the leading smart bulb brand. Problem is, Hue bulbs don’t work without the Hue Hub. Now, Philips is tackling the problem by releasing a new generation of bulbs that can be controlled via Bluetooth.



There’s no point in beating around the bush—at face value, this seems like a bizarre decision. Aside from Bluetooth compatibility, these new bulbs are identical to the old Hue bulbs. They look the same, they have the same color and dimming options, they’re the same price as the old Hue bulbs, and they’re meant to work with the Hue hub.

That’s right, these Bluetooth controlled Hue bulbs still work best with the Hue hub. Over Bluetooth, you can only control only 10 bulbs at a time (50 with a hub), you can’t organize and control bulbs by which room they’re in, and quite naturally, you can’t control the bulbs unless you’re close enough to maintain a Bluetooth connection. (It’s worth mentioning that you should still be able to assign specific rooms to the Bluetooth bulbs through Alexa/Assistant for individual bulb and room control with your voice.)



To Philips’ credit, Hue bulbs still have their full range of color options, scene settings, and multi-user control options when in Bluetooth mode. They also support Google Assistant and Alexa over Bluetooth, which makes up for Bluetooth’s short range (no Apple Homekit, sorry).

But for all the shortcomings of Bluetooth, what’s the benefit of a Bluetooth Hue bulb?
