Doesn't seem to be many suppliers of these in NZ and my house needs B22 so can't buy then from the US.
Anyway mitre 10 had them for $77 but Bunnings has them $76 currently. So after a 15% price match discount it cost me $64.60.

Much better then the $90 that Noel lemming wanted to charge.

Now I have to wait 2 days for my bridge to arrive to see how good the are in real life 😞

Nice bulbs. I've got a one colour and a couple of white ones.

 

I use one of the white bulbs by the front door and programmed to switch on and off with sunset & sunrise respectively. 

 

I use the colour bulb is my bedside light and this is triggered by certain emails & text messages (I'm on call for work) so as not to wake up my wife.

 

I would love to get my white bulbs to control the lighting in my TV lounge, but I would need too many bulbs... A more practical alternative for me would be a dimmer switch for all six bulbs that I could control via my Amazon Alexa.

Good deal! Are they the "richer colours" bulbs?

 

 

 

Everywhere around me is sold out of b22 Hue.

Bargain either way really.. I have about 12 smart bulbs and a strip running from my Hue and Google Home.
