Order Placed: Philips Hue A19 Starter Kit

I first saw these in person at Andrew N’s home in Tulsa, OK, when I happened to pass through town on the way back from a road trip. He spoke quite highly of them, and had converted most of the lights in his home over to Philips Hue bulbs.

The kit that I ordered was the Philips 456210 Hue A19 Starter Kit (~$200, Amazon.com) – this is the updated kit, with the higher light output bulbs (800 lumens) and the Apple HomeKit-compatible bridge.
