I'm starting to look at some bulbs for my father and have it narrowed to the Hue 2.0 or LifX bulbs. But I can't find anywhere locally that seems to stock the new 2.0 hardware spec of the Hue range. Does anyone have them? Where did you get them from?

Pretty sure Apple are the only official company that sells them in NZ but not sure if they are 2.0 or not.

Probably have to get them from Amazon UK like I did.

 

Contact apple and ask the version they ship to NZ.

IF Apple is selling v. 2.0 they really should update their Hue page. From the pictures and text on their NZ shop it looks like version 1.

 

It is strange that they are not selling version 2 though.

Yeah, I haven't contacted Apple directly about which version they ship, but the NZ meethue page doesn't mention anything about v2.0. Going to amazon gives me options to get them sent to me so not sure what's going on locally.
