Philips Hue Power Consumption Test – How much does Philips Hue Cost?

via IFTTT Philips Hue Power Consumption Test – How much does Philips Hue Cost?

People often ask me what the Philips Hue power consumption is when the devices are off. They also ask me just how power efficient a smart LED light bulb from Philips Hue is.

Well, I take you through the power usage of your Philips Hue bulbs both when the power is on and when the power is off. I run through the Philips Hue standby power usage for both the bulb and the Philips Hue Bridge. What I find is that these bulbs are incredibly efficient and they are relatively low on the power consumption level, especially when compared with incandescent light bulbs.

By the end of this video, you’ll know the Philips Hue power requirements, as well as the power usage when the bulbs are off. You’ll also know how much Philips Hue will cost each year you want to run a bulb in your smart home.

To give you a quick breakdown, a Philips Hue Bulb will cost you around $11 a year to run approximately 25% of the time in the continental United States or in Canada. This assumes a price per kilowatt-hour, but the one used is average in the United States.

All in all, I’m very happy with the Philips Hue power consumption levels that I’ve found. I’m very happy with the devices, and this is just another reason to go out an purchase a Philips Hue starter kit.
