Frequently asked questions

Which do I choose - LIFX or Philips Hue?


LIFX is a stand alone smart lighting solution and does not require a separate Bridge or Hub. It works best when you have a small number of smart devices in your home. Having too many can put a strain on your network. Philips requires the use of a Bridge or Hub. This is an additional cost but can run up to 50 smart devices while only requiring one connection to your home network.




Can I install Lumellow myself?


Yes you can. The design allows for simple hanging from a picture hook or a screw in the wall. 3M picture hooks also work extremely well. If you are routing the cable through the wall you will need an electrician to provide power inside the wall.




Can this be used without smart lighting?


Yes! You can use LIFX and Philips with a switch only. This switch will only power on and off. Dimming and colour changes can only be changed from a smart phone or approved accessory from LIFX or Philips. Please contact us if you would like to purchase with a dimmable only single colour lighting solution. We would be more than happy to assist!
