"Hey Siri, turn on the lights"

Discover the features that Apple HomeKit unlocks for your Philips Hue lights. Use voice-control through Siri, or link Philips Hue to other HomeKit enabled accessories in the iOS Home app and take control of your home. All you need is the square-shaped Philips Hue bridge and an Apple HomeKit-enabled device.

Works with Apple HomeKit


Control your Philips Hue lights and other HomeKit-enabled accessories using Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Just say: "Hey Siri, turn on the lights". You can also dim to the desired brightness or recall your pre-set scenes. Even tell Siri to set up for a party.

Easily group lights


Group your lights by room in the iOS Home app, so you can easily control lights and other devices in any part of your home by a single tap or voice command. You can for example ask Siri to “Turn on my bedroom lights” in the morning when you wake up.
What you can do

Control more than lights


Your Philips Hue accessories can be used to control your iOS Home app scenes, which can include your Hue lights and other smart home devices. Turn on the lights, close the blinds, and set the thermostat to the desired temperature. It’s up to you.
