Alexa controls it as long as it is connected also to a Wink or similar hub AND the Philips bridge is working at the time. Warning--the bridge goes out frequently and is very frustrating having to constantly re-boot!

Turn on all the bulbs and then push the button on the bridge after downloading the hue app and following the simple on screen prompts. To connect to echo you go to setting on the Alexa app and select connected home. Push the button on the bridge it will show in discovered devices. Add the bridge. Then select the individual bulbs and name them such as living room or bedroom. This is what you ask Alexa to control i.e.-Alexa dim the "living room light" to 60% etc. if can only control what group "name" you give it. If you create another group name like "the lights" and select and add all of your bulbs you can then control them all at the same time with one command instead of individually. It is very simple once you see what you need to do. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes it will work if you have a bridge. The echo can only control the bulbs by connecting to bridge. I bought the starter pack for 79.99 if came with a bridge and two white bulbs. Now I can purchase the color bulbs and connect them to the same bridge and control all of them with the echo.

Update on my review: The difference between the pre-Nov 2015 and the current one by looking at them is the shape of the "bridge". The older one has a round pucks sized bridge. The new one is square.
I found that my app continued to crash and Phillips Hue tech support could not explain why after resetting the bridge (small press in button on the bottom), removing and reinstalling the app over and over. So, I returned it to Home Depot.
For the same price, I got the NEW (November 2015 release) start up kit. One thing that I noticed was the bulbs have a higher intensity value (old bulbs were 600 lumens and new bulbs are 800 lumens).
Same easy set up, plug everything in, install the bulbs THEN install the Hue app and follow the instructions.
There are some great after-market apps that work better than the "official" app. Play with them and see what works best for your application. Read Less

Answer: 
The Home Depot website has another kit with the square bridge in the picture. I would guess this is the older non Homekit version. As for the getting the discount, it's a $20 discount and apparently quantities were limited. I have been unable to purchase one as well.

Do these "turn on" to a default color and brightness when power is first "switched on?"

Can one merely flip the existing "light switch" to turn the bulb on, like a regular lamp? Surely one doesn't need an iPhone app to simply get basic room illumination.

If the a19 bulbs are from a USA vender, it should be rated as110-130 VAC. This type of bulb should not be used for recess lighting receptacles, for that you will need the BR30 kit.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Seemed like a good idea, BUT..... As an avid Wink user, I thought this would be a great addition to my Wink & Echo home automation system for the bedroom and family room. WHEN it works, it is, but the Philips bridge module is constantly going offline, making it impossible to control these bulbs or any of the Hue bulbs. I now have over $300 worth of paper weights, as these are more frustrating than useful! January 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great system These are great for standard fitting that cannot take the larger BR30 light bulbs. This is a starter set so you get the bridge too. Lights come on to full white intensity when they get powered on. I think the the bridge should have an option to remember the color and brightness for individual lights so that their setting can be restored when they come online. They may one day see the light and do this and the bridge firmware does get updates making this feasible down the road. The official Hue app (on Android at least) is a user interface nightmare but there are other apps out there that do better. For example the list of light is scrolled with an up/down swipe but the same gesture also switches to the color setting screen so one is continually frustrated by having the the darned thing flipping to a screen you are not trying to get to. One can set up IFTTT to switch lights on, blink them etc for various events. For example, one of our lights s set to blink every evening at sunset! What is great is that they have opened the API to developers and so it is pretty easy to write software to control the lights - though the conversion of RGB values to their color space system is so obtuse that it suggests that some engineer there has a personal issue with RGB colors values for some reason. I think that with time the Hue lighting system will improve. Easier conversion from RGB values will enable better software, richer configuration for restoring settings, etc will result in better apps being available. April 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by More Than Just Good Fun The Philips Hue A19 LED Started Kit is without a doubt a lot of fun. I use a 3rd party app (Disco Hue) to sync it to music, the sound coming from TV, or just noise in the house. The official Hue app lets you set the bulbs to any of 16 million color pallets. While it is a lot of fun, Hue has many great uses as well. - First you have timers which allows you to set the lights to run for a set time then go off. - Second you can do alarms, where lights come on by themselves at a set time then go off. I have the Hue bulb in our dining room lamp to come on at 6:15 a.m. and go off at 7:20 a.m. Monday through Friday. We also have an alarm set on the bedroom lamp where it slowly brightens in a sunrise color over a 20 minute period during the work week. Makes waking up for work less miserable. :) - Third is geofencing which allows the dining room lamp to come on automatically whenever I arrive home after after dusk. It also turns off the bulbs when I leave. - When we are out of town I set the lights to come on at various times to deter any possible break-ins. - Hue works with the IF app, which allows it to work with numerous other products, services as well a social media. There are truly some very unique things you can do with Hue and IF. The main gripe I hear about Hue is the price. While it is a little expensive, when you consider that in this kit you are getting three connected, color changing LED bulbs (and bridge), that can do everything I just mentioned and more, it's a pretty good buy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Solution for Mood Lighting We absolutely love this product! The setup was relatively easy, and there are several apps for the iPhone for Phillips Hue products, so that custom light schemes can be created. This is great for mood lighting. December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daily atmosphere enhancer If you look online, you'll either find reviews from a lot of people who say Hue was so easy to set up, or from slightly fewer people who say they've practically been tearing their hair out because they're each experiencing at least one of a whole range of problems. I was one of the people who had trouble getting the system to work, as it took me a couple of days to identify that my router setup at home wasn't allowing the bridge (the Philips hub) that relays signals between a controller app and the bulbs to function properly. I figured out that I needed a new router with more ports; my 1st generation Apple AirPort Express had only one Ethernet port, and adding an Ethernet switch was not an appropriate means of getting the bridge to communicate successfully over WiFi. I bought a new AirPort Extreme (the new Express probably would have worked too), hooked it up, set up the network, checked meethue.com after setting up a free account to see if the portal could recognize my bridge -- it finally could -- and followed the instructions to complete setup. Then the Hue app was able to find the bridge, I linked the bulbs to the app, and have been really enjoying the lights as much as I had expected to. In addition to using the Philips Hue app as the main controller, I've downloaded Hue Disco and Ambify to sync the lights up to my music; and besides providing fun light shows, the Hue system just enhances being at home a lot because the lighting can easily change to suit the mood. Lighting has always been very integral to my feeling relaxed, awake, etc., so while I initially felt somewhat silly spending so much money to buy the Hue kit and then to get it to work, I'm happy with my purchase, and I plan to buy more bulbs for the house. Now I just have to wait and see if the bulbs last as promised. FYI: Philips setup instructions are minimal and technical support is scant (another pervasive complaint online). Before I figured out what the problem was, I had written to Philips, describing my setup and asking if perhaps the Ethernet switch was the culprit. While I did receive a response a couple of days later, the rep's advice was to return the kit to Home Depot and get a replacement or refund. I wrote back to say that I had figured out I needed a new router, but thanks for the help anyway. February 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Incredibly Versatile Highly recommended for specialty applications and tech "gearheads." For everyday household use, these lighting systems are definitely overkill. Learning to leave often-used physical dimmer switches alone and use smartphones to control our lighting instead took a lot of adjustment for my household. These lights were difficult to setup and communicate with via smarthphone, but I attribute that mostly to the complexity of our owned modem and router system - not the lights themselves. Once we got everything configured, the warmth of the lights for everyday use and color range and responsiveness of these lights for specialty use was astounding. Like other reviewers, I had good results with third-party smartphone apps to really push the limits of these lights. For specialty applications, parties, and for creative types these are a marvelous innovation. October 28, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cool but very pricy.... after the cool factor wears off---- I have had my Hue Lighting starter kit for 2 months now. After an easy set up, whenever I tried to access the bridge (hue controller that plugs into your wi-fi router) the downloaded app would CRASH after 15 seconds. Called technical support early in the morning and was instructed to disconnect from my wi-fi router and press the reset button on the Hue controller, removed the app from all devices (tablet, cell phone) and try it again. Worked ONE time and it happened again. Tech support said "well, dont know what else to tell you". I asked... "what? you dont know what else to tell me, arent you tech support, the expert, the work-around person, the guru of your product?" I was told straight up, that if I did not like the product, return it and get my money back. I found a third party app in the app store that works flawlessly. I emailed the guy that made the third party app and thanked him. I got an email back within the hour thanking me for contacting him, and should I ever need help to contact him. I noted that he had a "pay" app upgrade. I wrote him back and asked if it was worth the $4 extra for the app. He linked me to his beta site, downloaded the app for free and it works better than his play store free app. I have it set up now with two lamps, one on either side of my wall mounted 55" TV. I set my tablet on my coffee table and aim it at the TV. Now, if I am watching, lets say a nature show with a lot of green, the lights automatically wash the TV wall with the same color that is on the TV. If it immediately moves to a desert scene, I get the tan wash. When I watch an action movie, the lights change to match the brightest pixel immediately. It has changed how I watch TV. When the TV is not on, I can still control the light colors, the intensity, and which bulb does what independently. The reason for my quality and value rating: Quality-average because of the less than stellar tech support at Phillips Value-very expensive for a "cool" effect. Our ceiling in our TV room is a "tray" ceiling with a light shelf for concealed lighting and we considered the Hue Phillips rope lighting, but because of cost, we will not be buying it. We found that a few strings of LED Christmas lights are far cheaper, and they are on a dimmer switch. This gives us a movie theater experience, on budget! November 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cool system Works as advertised. easy to set up, several apps you can purchase to control lights. Pretty, fun and energy efficient lights. September 22, 2015
