Yo what's good yo saterland you know what man I know I said that I'm sick and everything and I'm still sick and I refuse to record when I'm sick because I sound terrible but you know what I had this opportunity and that wasn't childlike this passive but I finally got me some Phillips T lightbulbs and this is the one that got right here I just came back from Best Buy like an hour ago and I was that family dollar looking for snacks cuz I'm trying to get a snack car going but yes I want to go and check this out because I got three lightbulbs here I got the hub and then I got the Smart Switch

And what's dope about this is that it actually works with smart things so if it didn't work with smart things I don't know if I would've got it or not so since it works with smart things like he used to a Bigsby I can use my Galaxy watch and when I get the Galaxy home many whenever that come out or the regular Galaxy home I'll just use it with this so yeah let's hop into this alright yo so I know like it's probably like a billion and one unboxings on Philip C lightbulbs and everything but you want to do it anyway but yeah I'm up

In my smart home again I already did like by buying like two robot vacuums and pretty much every single nest product and I already got like the smart outlets and the LED strips for like one LED strip smart and once not just a regular basic one but yeah anyways I just got these Philips to light bulbs here and I heard that they're good so imma go ahead trotty so they're expensive though like I know they were $130 or some like that with the taxes and all that but yeah like I said it's actually pretty cool because it works with smart things but it also works with

Alexa home kid Google assistant and nest but let's remove the hole it works too in this thing so I don't really know if that works anymore that will be dope though because I have the nest smart smoke detector and carbon monoxide detectors and let's protect but yeah we'll go check that out so Phillips you personal Wireless lighting white and color ambience it's the bulb starter kit like I said we have three light bulbs here we have the hub and then we got the Smart Switch they call it a dimmer switch so I'll just say a dimmer switch it's actually

Energy Star rated and on the right side of the box we just have some info here like it has bluetooth ZigBee you can download it on the App Store and Google Play and it's just the same thing again with four light bulb this is so let's look on the back so we got a smart control we can wake up and go to sleep naturally set timers we can go and light up for gaming and blah blah blah all that stuff and if you want to go and pause this and read it for yourself you can do that but one thing that hurt that's pretty cool with the Philips use is like

When the Sun is rising the light bulb will actually turn on as the Sun is rising you know what I mean so like ass is getting brighter outside it gets brighter in your room see it like I said that's pretty cool I already went over what it works with and then yes let's go and hop into this so I got my unboxing knife here trusty unboxing knife and let's just go ahead and cut into this thing so I'm hoping this thing don't let me down man like I'm just getting into this like I really don't know that much about it and apparently this is what you put on your wall they do that Best Buy

Told me you replace this with your light switch if you want to but I don't think I'm gonna do that now right now anyways but yeah so right here we have our Phillips up and in order to use these light bulbs you actually need this and you actually plug that in with the ethernet cable so no connecting it to Wi-Fi or anything like that you actually have to plug it in with a physical Ethernet cable which kind of sucks but I mean it is what it is I already got the cable and everything so I just throw it in my basement and not even worry about it

But okay it looks like that this is what you use to replace your light switch so I'm gonna put that right there and then we got all of our light bulbs so this is what it looks like I'm gonna just go ahead and screw that into my lamp or something and I guess we're good so that's going look into this and see if we got more stuff so we can go and take this out and then here we have our user manuals and all that stuff but what do we do with that we throw it to the side of course we do so what else we got it here it looks like we got some cables and stuff okay

So yeah it looks like the cables and everything for the hub and then it looks like we get it Ethernet cable okay that's pretty dope and then we get whatever this is I'm not really sure right now I'll go and hook this up and I'll get back to you oh you also went ahead and installed all three Phillips hue bulbs so he got lamp number one in my room lamp number two and then we got lamp number three in the living room so it's literally been months since I started this video so today is April 13 and that started this video like what January so much that so I got some

Experience with these Phillips hue bulbs so let me go and show you that is installed in this lamp and yeah you can see it's right there and obviously I already set up everything so I already got it set up and you know Google home smart things home kit all of it so obviously with all this time that took me to record this video I already set it up on every so I got set up on Google home and smartthings and home kit Cortana everything so if you watch this turn off the lights absolutely here you go yeah you can see it's

Already set up turn on the lights absolutely here you go turn off the bedroom lights just like that and turn on the lights just like that and lastly let's use Cortana turn off the lights cool see ya you can obviously see right there that got everything hooked up in it's actually pretty easy so it actually tells you in the episode when you install the Philips ego app don't saw the Bluetooth one install the regular one it's gonna go ahead and just bring you through the whole set of process easy and they can go and set up of

Cortana and smart things and home getting all that later and then you can see I start this switch so basically what's going on with this switch is it doesn't replace your actual light switch now there are DIYs if I can go ahead and make it replace your switch but basically you just go ahead and screw it on to your wall or you use the 3m tee and this one looks like so it's actually magnetic it's pretty nice I really like that magnetic perk but I can go ahead take that off whenever I want to and you can just see the color changed that's actually because watch this so I can go

Ahead and click on this on button multiple times and then I can go ahead and change the color temperature or just the color completely now you actually go ahead and modify that in the Philips you app that's just how I got it right now but it's pretty cool so let me go and put it back to this little white color here or okay there we go and I can go ahead and adjust the brightness by holding on to this and you can see works just good let me go and turn that back up right there and yeah that's nice I can go ahead and turn it off and yeah cool it turns all the lights off that's

Hooked up to so in the app you can go ahead and configure what lights you want this to control now let me go and put that back but you can actually see that there's a little light right there to go ahead and tell you when it's working now whenever you want to just go ahead and take out the batteries you just go ahead flip it over take out that screw and they just take out the batteries but let me go and show you this in action real quick so turn off the lights just like that turn on the lights there we go and I don't know if you heard that but my stomach is actually growling

Right now I'm hungry I need some Domino's or something but then if I go over here to my nest hub I can go over here to my room and then I can see all the lights here so I can see the two lights in here I can go out change the brightness and then I can go ahead and change the code so we got ivory daylight we got a candle light I'm gonna go ahead and change that you can see it just changed right there we got blue we got gold Peru chocolate pumpkin we got a lot of options over here and then you could just tell Google what color you want too deep sky blue light sky blue like you

Got so many options out here and that's for smart things this is what's gonna look like so you can see I got my smart things panel right here and there you can see all the lights right here so you can see the bedside light you can see the dresser light and then you can see the living room light and then this is just how it looks at summer things itself so I got all my options up in here like I got a time mirror I got power on power off I can see all the activity in here and then I can go ahead and control the color so if I want to go make it blue it's gonna change blue

That's just for the dresser light though that's why I have it set up and then I went ahead and set up some scenes right here so there is an option I just go ahead and control all of them at once so you got to go ahead and set that for yourself so if I want to go and turn off all the lights in my room I'm gonna tap on that routine scene thing right there and you can see everything turned off I know I turn my lawn now and you can see it just worked and then with Cortana's basically just you just use your voice like it's not really you I hear that you can just go and control like you got

Just talk to Cortana and that's for the Philips you her because here I got it all connected right here I got the power plugged in and then I got my ethernet cord going to my router here because this does not connect to your Wi-Fi you have to actually go ahead and connect this to your router directly now this is my basement and all the lights are upstairs so it works fine I ever had any issues here but this uh pretty much just stays out your way so you can see I got like the power indicator I can see my local networking and I can see that's connected to the Internet now if I want

To go and use some kind of a Philips ego app I can go ahead just press on to this button right here and that's how it works and the first setup you have to go ahead and press this Philips 2 button here so then go ahead and connect your lights and this thing can actually go ahead and support up to a hundred lights so let's say you go over your 100 lights limit you would just have to go ahead and get another but that's pretty much it besides that though that's pretty much it you can just go ahead and mount this on your

Wall if you want to but I'm not doing that just leaving it right here for now anyways is fine for me so I'm not worried about that but y'all that's gonna be pretty much it for me so pretty much all these services are gonna work exactly the same what Philips you like if I go over here to my home map you can see I got all my lights on and go over here to the dresser light I can go ahead and adjust the brightness right there if I want to change the color like it works pretty good and what cool thing about home kit is that they actually have an option here for the hue dimmer so I can

Go ahead and see the battery level see if it's charging and then I can go ahead and change the button presses and I can even see the bridge right here so all of that stuff just showed up there when I link to a home kit but that's gonna be pretty much it for me y'all so thanks for watching if you like this video go and give this video a like and if you really liked it go and subscribe but that's gonna be pretty much it for me y'all so thanks for watching I'll see on the next one stay safe stay home peace out
