Will this work without a hue hub (i.e. only ST hub)? I did a cursory search and could not find anything in the forum. If anyone has a good link to a good thread or a quick answer, I would be much obliged.
Smarthings recommends The Hue hub https://support.smartthings.com/hc/en-us/articles/200848024-How-to-connect-Philips-hue-devices also Amazon now has http://www.amazon.com/Philips-259531-Personal-Wireless-Lighting/dp/B00I812GC8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1462552749&sr=8-2&keywords=hue+bloom+starter+kit
It will, but I think you lack some color control. Haven’t tried it.
I like my Blooms.
I have 2 of them that I use for notifications via IFTTT (new text when at home, turns them green; missed call turns them blue).
It’s great for when I’m playing a videogame with the headset on or watching a movie with the volume up. I have 2 blooms and 1 lightstrip, the lightstrip and one bloom will not be active if I have the Television on via Harmony (using Rule Machine) to reduce reflection.
Definitely worth getting as an add-on for some cool fun.
