New to Philips Hue?

To control a Philips Hue white and color ambiance bulb, you need to have a Philips Hue bridge and install the Hue app on your smart device. This way, you can enjoy the full connected experience. There are two ways to get a Hue bridge. (1) You can get a starter kit that includes light bulbs and a bridge. (2) You can get a separate bridge and build your own Philips Hue system around it.

How to expand

You can always grow your Philips Hue family. Once you've set up your Philips Hue system, you can go on and add up to 50 Philips Hue lights, luminaires, switches and other accessories. Just power them and add them to your system via the Philips Hue app. After your app has found the new products, you can name them and add them to new or existing scenes. Even more Philips Hue to enjoy.

The Philips Hue white and color ambiance starter kit is compatible with Apple HomeKit technology. Ask Siri to turn on or dim your lights or recall presets without touching a single button. Via third party apps you can even link your lights to other Apple HomeKit enabled devices.

Create your ambiance

Set the right ambience for any moment with a range of beautiful, natural white light. Use the app to set any shade of white light, from cool energizing daylight to relaxing warm white light. So set the mood. Change the ambience. Feel different. Feel better.

Light for your well-being

Light influences our mood, behavior, alertness and routines. Through the app, you can set the light that is optimal for your moment. Philips Hue helps you to energize, concentrate, read and relax. Customize your daily routines into moments you can enjoy. Set the mood. Change the ambiance. Feel different. Feel better.

Wake-up

Ease your sleeping routine and wake up gently for a fresh start of each day. Philips Hue will help get you out of bed in a nice way. The gradually increasing light intensity gives you the feeling you are waking up naturally with sunlight - rather than the rude awakening of an alarm ringing.

Light schedules for home automation

Philips Hue can make it seem like you're home when you're not, using the schedule function in the Philips Hue app. Set the lights to come on at a pre-set time, so the lights are on when you arrive home. You can even set rooms to light up at different times. And of course, you can let the lights turn off gradually in the night, so you never have to worry whether you've left any lights on

Away-from-home control

You can control your lights remotely wherever you are. Check if you have forgotten to switch your lights off before you left your home, and switch them on if you are working late.

Comfort dimming

Experience guaranteed smooth dimming with Philips Hue. Not too bright. Not too dark. Just right. No need for wires, an electrician or installation.

Smart control

Connect your Philips Hue lights with the bridge and start discovering the endless possibilites. Control your lights from your smartphone or tablet via the Philips Hue app, or add switches to your system to activate your lights. Set timers, notifications, alarms, and more for the full Philips Hue experience.

Tap the pencil on the Philips Hue app's scene page, then tap the scene you want to add your new Philips Hue lamp to. Tap Edit, then the arrow in the lower right corner/swipe up, mark the check box for your Philips Hue white and color ambiance bulb and set the color temperature and dimming level of your liking. Tap Save and you're now good to go.
