Our take on the Philips Hue A19 White and Color Ambiance Bulb by Crutchfield's Kramer Crane
Get creative with your Hue smart lighting system.
Enjoy colorful lighting throughout your home
The 3rd-generation Philips Hue A19 white and color ambiance bulb is a fun, affordable way to enjoy smart lighting in your house. This efficient LED bulb replaces a standard incandescent or CFL bulb, and gives you the ability to control it from your phone or tablet.
The A19 bulb is an add-on to Philips Hue Starter Kits. It's the latest offering in the Hue lineup, and offers even more color options than previous generations. Once your system is in place, you'll control your new smart bulbs through the free Philips Hue app (Apple®, Android™).
Ambiance made easy
The bulb features a wide range of color choices, along with easily adjustable white light. Use warm light in the evening for a soft feel in the room, and cool, bright light that makes waking up in the morning feel natural.

What's in the Box:
- White and Color Ambiance A19 bulb (Gen 3 with Richer Colors)
Easy to add to an existing Hue system, and make available to Alexa (or Google Home!) to control. Great colors. The only reason that this bulb doesn't get 5 stars is the price - seems too expensive for what it is.
