It is much more than changing colors. It is changing lighting output and moods.

Hitting movie mode and the lights dim to 25% to watch the Walking Dead.

Having your exterior door and interior front hall lights ramp up to 50% at 7pm ever night and ramp down to 0 every morning at 7am.

etc.

Once you have that kind of control, you will never be able to live without it.

What it really nice about it is that you dont have to replace switches. No electrician, no issues in apartments, etc.

If it is a Zigbee product, it should work quite well as each bulb would be its own repeater.
