Those that have the Philips Hue bulbs, can they be turned on/off with the light switch at all?

I have a couple of the Limitless LED bulbs, and when you turn them off at the wall, then turn the switch back on, they come back on to the same colour they were turned off at (which makes them usable as normal lights). Does the Hue do similar?

My Hue's come back on to the default normal colour. Regardless of how they were when you turned the switch off.
Unless there is a setting somewhere I have missed that puts them back how they were.

Hope that helps.

That does help. Makes them a lot more Wife Friendly.

What is their default colour by the way? Is it a Warm White?

They work well, sometimes if you don't press the button right you may need to press again.

The Hue Tap, was the best thing i got for those lights, especially coming home with motorbike gloves on. The default colour if you use the normal outlet switch is i believe called Cool light. Not the yellowey warm colour.
