    Picked up two of these in Homebase today for €3.80 each. Normally €30 each according to them !! They had loads of them left. Work with the tcp app and with google home. Good value and good crack to annoy her with the bedroom light switching on randomly 😂😂

    Which branch were they in?

    Can you operate them manually also?

    Sorry. Nutgrove Homebase and yes they act like a normal bulb also

    I wonder do these work for Alexa also?

    I was in Homebase Limerick looking for these at this price but no such luck 😩

    They do have them but at the below pricing.

    In Homebase Bluebell they are for sale at €13.80, reduced from €23. Its hard to believe that they were ever for sale at €23 and €13.80 is probably the full original price.

    Popped in to Nutgrove this morning and either the sale TCP bulbs were gone or they were back to full price as it there wasn't a sniff of a sale bulb to be found.

    However, all the osram smart bulbs were out and reduced. They don't advertise being Hue/Google compatible but the internet says that the hue app will recognise them! Got 3 colour changers for 4.96 each (down from 35) and an Edison/filament for 96c!!! They had a few left, boxes are a bit damaged but will update with a trip report once I get them linked in to the system.

    Is this a bargain, or was the OP the only person in the country to get it?



  • Registered Users Posts: 364 ✭✭alanbk


    These were the ones I got. They had a sh** load when I was there.

    Were they on the big 80% off shelf on the left just at the beginning of the lighting section? Lot of empty shelves when I was there, definite impression that I was getting the dregs with the Osrams.

    Happy to report I got them set up with Hue just as easily as the likes of the IKEA ones, so this was a MASSIVE saving for me. Been gradually doing all the lights in the house but now I've got colour changing set up in the office/den, delighted with that!

    OP has posted yellow/white bulbs, the other examples above from other posters are all TCP colour change bulbs. Not the same thing. The osrams are arguably an even better deal at €4.60. I'll be back in tomorrow to grab more for sure
