I'm thinking about getting the Hue smart bulbs for my bedroom because it seems like it would help to be able to dim and brighten the lights around bed time and waking. Anyone using them or other smart bulbs? Thoughts?
@spideyj That's one approach.
I'm using a dawn-simulator alarm clock to help me through the Dutch winter, and that does a pretty good job. I *think* it also has a dusk mode, but that's less of an issue for me.
@eldergoth I used to have one of those and I liked it a lot until it died on me. They cost about the same as the starter kit though and seem slightly less versatile I think
@spideyj "Versatile" is not something I'd call them, no.
@spideyj yes, they're wonderful. go for it imo
@spideyj yeah, I do this with lifx bulbs and stringify. I used to have one of those dawn alarm clocks, but it was terrible and useless in comparison.
@tekniklr yeah, I used to have one of those but it died on me after a year or so. Smart bulbs seem more useful
@aaronpk oh, that is very good to know - I'm looking forward to getting them set up later this week!
