Overview: This Philips Hue LED White Ambiance BR30 flood light can be added to an existing Hue Personal Wireless Lighting system. It is not a standalone item, and must be combined with other Hue products, such as one of the Starter Kits, which includes the wireless bridge. The free Philips Hue app lets you control the lights wirelessly from 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.
Light Bulb: The Hue LED White Ambiance BR30 flood light can be used in most standard light sockets (Edison screw base). It has a BR30 form factor, and is 3.7" at widest point and 5.2" tall. The bulb is rated at 6.5 watts (0.5W at standby), and has an estimated lifetime of 25,000 hours. Inside the bulb is a wireless interface that allows you to change the color temperature of the light. The internal software is automatically upgradable when connected to the Philips Hue bridge. The bulbs have a beam angle of 120° (±20°), and a startup time of less than 2 seconds from AC power (less than half a second from standby). The White Ambiance bulb can create over 50,000 shades of white, from warm to cold color temperatures.
