Play with light and choose from 16 million colours in the Hue app to match the light to your mood. The bulbs have been improved with deeper green, cyan and blue for even better scene setting in your home. Use a favourite photo and relive that special moment with splashes of light. Save your favourite light settings and recall them whenever you want with the tap of a finger.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you have a starter kit, screw the bulbs into your existing light fittings and turn on your wall light switches. For other Philips Hue lights, such as Philips Hue lightstrip plus, you only have to plug them in and power them. Simple.
Plug in your bridge and it will automatically power up. Connect it to your Wi-Fi router using the network cable provided. Wait for the three lights to come on and you are good to go.
Download the app in the App Store or Google Play Store. Connect to the bridge. Find your lights. And there you have it, you've got Philips Hue.
Now that your system is up and running, it's time to get familiar with the possibilities of Philips Hue. Explore the functions of the Philips Hue app or download and try some third party apps and discover new ways to play with light. And when you're ready, you can expand your system to enjoy Philips Hue even more.
