FAQ

What is Apple HomeKit?

Date published 06/10/2015 - Last edited 04/07/2016

Apple HomeKit technology provides an easy, secure way to control HomeKit-enabled accessories using Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

You can create your own scenes to control your home settings. For example, you can create a scene to automatically turn off the lights, lock your doors, close the garage door, and set the thermostat to the desired temperature with just a single command.

What can I do with Apple HomeKit?

1) You can use Siri to control your Philips Hue lights.  Export your Philips Hue scenes to HomeKit and recall them using Siri.

2) Third party Apple HomeKit apps can control Philips Hue lights together with other HomeKit enabled accessories like door locks and thermostats. Third party HomeKit Apps are apps that iOS software developers create to combine Apple HomeKit accessories into a single app. This gives you the opportunity to control multiple HomeKit accessories, even from different manufacturers.

Can my old round-shaped Hue bridge be updated to support Siri voice control and Apple HomeKit?

Date published 06/10/2015 - Last edited 04/07/2016

Siri voice control requires Apple HomeKit which is only supported on the new square-shaped Hue bridge. Unfortunately, it is not possible to support Apple HomeKit on the old Hue bridge because it does not meet the hardware requirements for HomeKit.

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

Date published 06/10/2015 - Last edited 04/07/2016

The new square-shaped Hue bridge adds Apple HomeKit compatibility. Besides HomeKit, the new 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 new Hue bridge is ready for the future as it has way more internal memory and more powerful processor than the old Hue bridge. For more information on HomeKit visit www.meethue.com/apple-homekit

You can recognize the new Hue bridge by its square shape versus the old round shaped bridge.

Go to settings > Siri voice control > Advanced >Homes > select the home > tap the button ‘make primary’ to set your home as primary home. The primary home is where Siri voice commands default to.

You cannot see which homes you have shared. However, you can see whether you are admin for a home. Go to settings > Siri voice control > Advanced > Homes > select the home. In case you are admin, the text “You are the admin of this Home” will be shown.

I have multiple homes where I have hue systems I want to control those with Siri individually how can I do this?

Date published 11/07/2016 - Last edited 20/07/2016

Go to settings > Siri voice control > Advanced >Homes. On the screen will be displayed the list of homes and which one is set as primary home which your current bridge is connected to. You can also add another Home. When you pair your bridge to HomeKit you can select one of the existing Homes or create a new Home. If you want to control both bridges separately, assign them to two different Homes. Please note that you have to specify the name of the Home when you provide a Siri command to any non-primary Home. Example: “Turn on the lights in my Holiday Home”

The HomeKit setup code is not accepted by my Hue app. The Philips Hue app tells me the HomeKit setup code is not accepted when setting up Siri voice control.

Please make sure that you have entered the correct code or use the camera scanning feature.

Only one iCloud account can be linked to the Hue bridge. Make sure you are the owner of the iCloud account (not shared). Otherwise, see ‘The Philips Hue app tells me my Hue bridge is already paired when setting up Siri voice control.
