I paid $200 for a device that doesn't work. I'm a software engineer and I can't get the device to connect.
Bulbs okay, App has issues
The bulbs work with my Amazon Echo, but they have been a problem with the My Hue app and Siri. The My Hue app allows for geofencing and my house should be lit when I arrive in the driveway, but often it is dark because there's a problem with the app. The Echo still works, but the app does not. The settings change by themselves and it is not reliable. It used to be very stable, but has been sporadic since Christmas. Since I count on this app to avoid coming home to a dark house every night, I'm not happy with the performance.
I wish I could give it negative stars!
Simply one of the worst apps I've ever used! The updated current version is not an improvement, the functionality is actually much worse. Did anyone bother to test it?? One would think philips could invest in what should be simple and easy to use software for their expensive hardware. Huge disappointment! Don't waste your time.
