FAQ

What is the signal range of the Hue bridge?

The ZigBee signal range of the round-shape Hue bridge and the square-shaped Hue bridge are approximately 30m.The range can vary depending on obstacles in-between the bridge and the nearest Hue light. In order to extend the signal range of the system, each Hue light acts like a range extender by relaying the ZigBee signal.

What are the differences between the square-shaped Philips Hue bridge and the round-shaped Philips Hue bridge?

The square-shaped Hue bridge adds Apple HomeKit compatibility. Besides HomeKit, the square Hue bridge offers all the existing features and compatibility with existing Hue lights, Hue taps, Hue wireless dimmer switches, Philips Hue apps for iOS and Android and the broad range of third party Hue apps. The square-shape Hue bridge is ready for the future as it has way more internal memory and more powerful processor than the round-shape Hue bridge.

Can you connect the Hue luminaires through a bridge?

Yes, all Hue luminaires can be connected through a Hue bridge and become part of the Hue ecosystem. However all Hue White Ambience luminaires are natively provided with a remote control switch* in the box in order to allow a plug & play solution to enjoy immediately benefits such as the 4 pre-loaded light recipes experience (relax, read, concentrate, energize) and the dimmability function to reduce and increase light intensity, even when a bridge is not already present. To connect these to the Hue eco-system via the Hue dimmer switch. Open the app, go to Settings > Accessory setup > Press “+” > Hue dimmer switch and follow onscreen instructions.
*Except for the 1-lighter “Extension Spot” models Pillar and Runner.
