This is an email I received today from Philips Hue, the company that manufactured my lightbulbs.
I use my lights every day. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that I use my lights about as often as I need to illuminate a book I might be reading, or make the room less dark, so I’m not sure what Philips mean when they say “It’s been too long?”
I use Philips Hue bulbs for three primary reasons:
- To illuminate my living room which without light bulbs is not visible; in fact, I would go as far as to say that without light bulbs, my living room is dark.
- To throw a relaxing crimson hue across my walls and ceiling, and calm my weary mind from the stress of being in the dark.
- To get out of the negative relationship cycle I’d had with a string of previous light bulbs.
Are they suggesting that I should turn my lights on more often? Surely that would be bad for the environment? And how frequently do I need to use my lights in order to meet their required relationship standards? There’s a real concern here that if the frequency of light bulb use is too great that I will spend most of my day standing by the door flicking the light switch constantly on and off. Surely they don’t want that?
Oh, and I also bought them so I could do this:
