I don’t think Philips hue bulbs are technically the best solution. I don’t mind the bridge itself. In a matter of fact I think it is a better solution than having 100 wifi connected devices. However I’m having a problem with Philips hue colors. First, they are not using the same colors on all of their hue products (hue bloom is having different green than the hue bulbs). And the colors are not that nice as colors of LIFX, for instance.
