Seamless integration

Dennis from Philadelphia, PA on 1/18/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I love Philips Hue, we have a number of bulbs and strips and they work seamlessly. I wish someone would come up with a solution for a 90 degree bend but beyond that they work really well. My Google homes have no problems in controlling them. They did seem to be a little finicky when I first installed them but that was because I had the hub in the basement after moving the hub to the center of my house I have not had the same issues since. I just bought another strip!

Pros: Works with Google home

Cons: Not able to bend at sharp angles

Crutchfield customer from Tucson, AZ on 11/7/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I really like this light strip and the fact that it works with Alexa. It is flexible and allows for easy placement. I am giving it only 4 stars as opposed to five because there are issues with getting it connected to the hub. There are many postings about this on other sites. I own Phillips smart bulbs and those where a breeze to set up same with the Wemo plugs but for some reason the strip did not want to pair with the hub nor with Alexa. It took several attempts before both would recognize the strip.

Pros: Flexible and can add more lights to the strip, love the fact that it can change colors.

Cons: Takes several attempts to get the hub to find and add the strip to the network.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These lights work great! They are easy to set up and are a great addition to anyone who has a Philips Hue Bridge. Installation is a breeze. My wife loves the look they provide underneath our kitchen cabinets.

Pros: easy to set up easy installation

Cons: They are expensive

Absolutely necessary

Corey from N Michigan on 8/8/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A really good compliment to an existing Hue lights setup. Best when the strip is out of plain site so the colors blend and the individual bulbs are not so glaring. Definitely worth the price.

Pros: Awesome color blending Length of strip Ease of installation.

Cons: Sticky strip on backside will eventually wear out.

Awesome addition to Hues

Hue lighting strip

Robert from Monroe, CT on 3/22/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I love the strip lights. I have them in a bedroom tray ceiling and it aluminates the room exactly as I hoped. I used 2 and tie them into my Alexa system to turn on and off. I am not able to change colors but it is easy to dim or brighten . I gave them a 4 since they are a bit expensive but are quality .. and you cab only extend to 33' per so I needed to install 2 separate segments to cover my tray...

Pros: Great color and lighting for tray ceiling... integrates to wink and Alexa

Cons: Price and 33' max distance per run

2nd Gen Lightstrip Matches 3rd Gen bulb colors fairly well.

Wayne from Lakeside, CA on 1/25/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I absolutely love, Love, LOVE my Hue light setup! Having been a professional light jockey for most of my twenties these lights are a dream come true! I originally bought the starter set so I could turn the lights on/off with my voice via my Echo but after installing the first set I was hooked! I think the right lighting can set the mood to lead where ever you may want it to go and with these lights I can paint the room blue, red or green on a whim and let's face it, colered lights emminating from behind the TV is just plain Awesome!! I can simulate candlelight, Club Lights, a sunny day in Albaquerque, maybe with a few passing clouds or I can just flat out run a Christmas themed a light show!

Pros: Accent lighting that makes you seem like you're serious about your TV! Simple, Easy To Use Compatible with most home automation systems.

Cons: Attaching the strip can be a little more difficult than anticipated especially around corners. Price: The starter kit comes with 80 inches of LED strip and the extentions are only 3 feet.

Features

Overview: The Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance LightStrip Plus is an LED light strip that can add light to many places where traditional light fixtures cannot go. Using the Hue App, you can control the color and intensity of the LightStrip to suit your moods. The LightStrip Plus comes with a wireless control box with an attached power cord, plus a 24V AC adapter.

Light Strip: The 80" (6.6') Hue Lightstrip Plus is approximately 1/2" wide and 3/16" thick, and features bright variable color LEDs every 2" along its length. The LEDs can produce up to 16-million colors. It also provides bright functional white light up to 1600 lumens, and can output all shades of white, from warm to cold color temperatures: 1600 lm @ 4200K, 1000 lm @ 6500K, 800 lm @ 3000K, and 600 lm @ 2200K. The LightStrip Plus is rated at 20.5W, and has an estimated lifetime of 20,000 hours.

Hue Wireless Lighting System: The LightStrip Plus can be added to an existing Hue Personal Wireless Lighting system. When you connect the LightStrip Plus to the Hue Bridge via your Wi-Fi router, you can control the colors and intensity of the lights on your smartphone or tablet. The system lets you set up light schedules, control the lights when you're away from home, and even change the color of the lights to match your mood. Up to 50 Hue products can be added to the system, and controlled by a single bridge.

Installing: The LightStrip Plus' adhesive backing allows you to stick the strip almost anywhere. The strip can be bent up to 90° to go around corners. You can add light under cabinets, in hallways, or add accents to architectural features in your home. The LightStrip Plus features "scissor markings" roughly every 12.9" where the strip can be cut to length. You can also add multiple LightStrip extensions for a total length of up to 33 feet. Included with the LightStrip Plus is a wireless controller box and an 8' power cable. The power cable terminates into a DC barrel connector, which plugs into the included 24V AC adapter.
