After years of thinking about it, I finally added WiFi LED bulbs to a few lamps. I had used the WeMo for awhile (since Ubi days) but this was a chance to finally be able to control color / ambiance.

A few observations about the Hue:

  • It’s very simple to setup. The app / bridge is nearly plug and play
  • It’s fast. Probably sub 100 ms response time.
  • There are lots of ways to integrate to it.
  • The color combinations (scenes) for three lights may sense.
  • Color has a huge impact on how a place feels.

The next step is to integrate with Alexa. Ironically, this required you to use your hands to get the Hue bridge into pairing mode… to far from where I was typing to try out easily.
