Philips Hue will help get you out of bed the way you like it, helping you start your day feeling refreshed. The light brightness increases gradually mimicking the effect of sunrise and helps you wake up naturally, instead of being woken up by the loud sound of an alarm clock. Start your day, the right way. In the evening, the relaxing warm white light helps you to unwind, relax and prepare your body for a good night’s sleep.
Set the right atmosphere for any moment and decorate your home with warm to cool white light. Enjoy different styles throughout the year, no matter if it's the crisp white light reminding you of a spring breeze, the warm white light of a summer sun, or the ice cool daylight of winter.
Connect your Philips Hue lights with the bridge and start discovering the endless possibilities of the system. 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.
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 times, so the lights are on when you arrive home. You can even set rooms to light up at different times.
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.

How do I get the Hue dimmer switch to work which is included in the Hue White Ambiance starter kit?
Make sure that the Hue lamps and Hue Bridge are powered and that the battery lit is removed from the dimmer switch and you are good to go.
Why do my light settings not change when I press the on button?
The default behavior is that the first press turns the light on to the last state. The second press turns on relax, third to reading, fourth to concentrate and fifth to energize. If the lights are already on, by default the first press will not show a visual change on the lights. You can customize this behavior in the hue app.
Why does the scene cycling always restart from the beginning?
When no button is pressed for a while, the scene cycling starts with the first scene. This way you can always use the same amount of presses to get the same scene.
