Follow these 4 easy steps
Power your light sources
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.
Set up your bridge
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 Philips Hue app and connect to your bridge
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.
Play around and experience light in ways you had never imagined
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.
With Philips Hue you can transform your everyday lighting into an extraordinary experience. Connected home lighting offers infinite possibilities for playing with colors, syncing lights to your music, TV and games for immersive effects. And with hundreds of apps to choose from, the only real limit is your imagination.
The smart and energy-efficient LED lights bring Philips Hue to life. They deliver bright and beautiful light for your daily activities, special moments, and immersive experiences. They’re practical too. They dim. They flash. They pulse. They do pretty much anything you want. And they’re available in different shapes, sizes and models to suit your home.
Smart wireless hub: The Bridge
The bridge is the heart of your Philips Hue system that connects your smart device to your Philips Hue lights. You can add up to 50 Philips Hue lights and accessories to one bridge. Linked to Wi-Fi via your router, it also connects your system to the wider world via the Internet for out-of-home control and other smart features. The bridge is included in all Philips Hue starter kits, or you can buy it separately and simply build your own Philips Hue system.
You can control your Philips Hue system from any device, wherever you are. For the easiest way to set brightness, create timers, change colors (and so much more), choose the Philips Hue app. Discover different functionalities by trying one of the third party apps developed for Philips Hue. You don’t even have to be at home to control your lights - great for peace of mind.
Smart wireless lighting system
Philips Hue is based on ZigBee LightLink, a low-power, safe, and reliable technology to control your lights. New features and improvements are continuously added to the system to make it even more useful. Software and firmware updates can be done wirelessly and directly to your lights. The Philips Hue system can be easily integrated with other ZigBee-based systems for additional home automation.
