    Got my Hue switch, pretty quick and easy to get it connected. I wish it had slightly more options like being able to turn one bulb off without using the phone app.

    If anyone knows of a way to do that please let me know

    Otherwise the switch is awesome, no latency between pressing the buttons and the lights changing

    Spent some time again last night using lightsync and I'm just totally in love. Lightsync + 5.1 surround sound = I'll never go to a Cinema again, this is why Cinemas are dying - it's pretty easy to do something at home that's far better than the cinemas experience

    I'm using Amazon Echo to turn the hue lights on and off...

    Yeah I use google home or the hue app.

    Does anyone else's Hue lights come on at random? This is if you leave the power on at the wall but turn them off using the phone app or the Philips controller - it seems to be random as well as to which bulb does it, it's never all of them that come on, just one random one and it doesn't happen every day. So far it's only ever happened at night, I've never come home or being at home to see them come on during the day

    I'm wondering if voltage spikes/drops in the circuit may be causing it
    Or maybe the phone app is sending wonky data to the bridge at random

    In related news, we're getting quotes to replace all* of our downlights with Hue ones. Not just the bulb, but the whole downlight. Will mean we're using less power, and we'll have less heat escaping through the tops of the conventional downlights come winter (and of course the ability to control the lights better).

    *just looking at main living area and bedroom/ensuite at the mo, but still probably gonna be a couple of grand.

    Waiting for bits to turn up for DIY ambilight at the mo, Hue etc too pricey for me.

    Yeah it’s probably just a software bug or something
    I’ll reset the bridge and phone app and see if that works
    It’s real random so it’s hard to know for a while if it’s worked

    I don’t mind having to turn the lights off using the normal power switch but then it just means I bought the Philip’s remote for nothing because it doesn’t actually turn the lights off
