I'd like advice from those who have used LIFX or Philips Hue smart bulbs along with HomeKit. I am using a Lutron Caseta Smart Bridge Pro 2 with several Caseta wireless dimmers. The rooms with the Caseta dimmers are not going to be an issue. I want to replace my BR30 lights in my lengthy hallway (7 lights) and in my kitchen (2 lights above cabinets on one side and 5 lights above cabinets on other side of kitchen). I understand I need a Philips Hue bridge with no bridge needed for the LIFX bulbs. What I'm curious about, is if I use the Philips Hue BR30 lights - can I only change the color schemes within the Philips Hue app, or is that manageable using HomeKit. I already have the Lutron app well integrated with HomeKit. Also I would like feedback from users on reliability, do the bulbs last, do they lose connectivity, what other problems have users had. As expensive as these smart bulbs are - I want to make sure I am using the right bulbs that integrate reliably with my set up. For instance I had some Philips 40W G25 bulbs I ordered, and they failed miserably with the Caseta dimmers - they would blink every one to 2 seconds, tried them on 3 separate light fixtures with 3 different dimmer switches with same results. A call to Lutron came up with the suggestion to switch bulbs, so I tried some Sylvania dimmable bulbs and they work fantastic! Thanks for any help or advice...much appreciated!
