    Almost every bulb in the house is Philips Hue now. Basement ceiling is 100% Hue colour.

    Dubai bulbs are best (for energy efficiency), but difficult to find in warm white. Overengineered because of hot climate and other factors. Of course though, wrong initial voltage for North America.

    Printing currency to keep up with the USA and China will be a monumental task.

    Well TIL most led bulbs yellow over time. I had one of our under cabinet ones fail, so bought a replacement. As soon as I turned it on, the difference between it, and the rest was crazy. It was so much whiter, I thought I bought the wrong colour temp. Then I realized that what I was seeing is what they USED to look like 6 years ago when we replaced the cabinets.

    I looked into it, and I guess the epoxy they use to seal the bulb can go yellow over time in a hot environment. Under cabinet lights don't get much airflow, so they run pretty hot.

    Now I have to replace them all ffs.

    Pic doesn't do it justice, but you can see the difference a bit. Left is new, right is old.

    I mean there will be colour variations between manufacturers and bulb types too.

    The smart move is to buy at least a few extra bulbs whenever you replace a whole set.

    Same bulbs, same manufacturer, same part number. Like I said, I didn't even realize how they yellowed, but after replacing it I remembered they did look that white the first year. So buying extra wouldn't have helped as they would be just as white.

    Rub a highlighter on the lens of the new bulb.

    (probably a Red Green fix)

    I had been fighting with my hue motion sensor this past week. Kept detecting motion but no lights, app was showing they were on, though it was sensitivity so kept fiddling with it. Light switch was off

    Current thoughts on BR30 / PAR long neck style bulbs in a "soft white" color? Philips "65w equivalent" seems to be $6-8 each. Going to be a long time before I replace my ~40ish pot lights if that's the price. That being said, long life and reliability would be nice, even if it's a little more money, because changing bulbs is for suckers. Are those "amazon basics" bulbs any good?

    Anyways, think of the Cx5 as the Aspen of cars. Great for middle income families, but terrible overall.

    I bought those Phillips pot lights and have no complaints. I have 5000K for the two outside garage ones and 3000K for everywhere else. But I'm letting the old ones burn out first.
    Kurt Cobain taught me that it's better to burn out than fade away.

    Wait until HD puts them on sale. Buy out HD and get incredibly dirty looks from the people who work there about “how many pot lights could you possibly have”.

    I think the time I did that is a few pages back

    I just purchased the Luminus BR30 from Costco and Philips and Ecosmart ones from HD. All three looked the same in soft white so I kept the Costco ones since they're cheaper plus Costco warranty. I'll be picking up the PAR30 5000K ones from Costco for outdoor.
