So I'm slowly moving to a smart home - Nest smoke alarms / CCTV / Nest Thermostat etc. Sonos is all the rooms and really enjoy the benefits they all bring! I decided to get some philips hue lights in the lounge and thought they'd also be a nice feature but I'm currently struggling to see the benefit of them at present. I've only downloaded the basic hue app at present but it seems a faff to unlock my phone - open the app and switch the lights on when I go downstairs in the morning. I've had a play with some of the pre set light settings which are OK for playing around with but not something I want to use in general. I've yet to use the 'holiday' feature but think that'll be a great addition once on holiday to make it look like someones home! Am I missing something - I'm currently looking at buying one of the sensors to trigger the lights in the lounge - certainly not convinced at present on spending £500 to change the lights in the kitchen/diner to the hue bulbs.
