    Questions & answers

    Does the existing Hue Sync desktop app work with the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box?

    No, the Hue Sync desktop app does not work with the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box — but the Hue Sync mobile app does! 
    The existing Hue Sync desktop app lets you mirror the content on your computer to your Philips Hue color-capable lights. The Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box is a device that uses the same technology to expand your home theater with surround lighting — no computer or laptop required — mirroring the content on your TV screen with light. You can control it with the Hue Sync mobile app. 
    Connect your HDMI-connected devices — streaming adapters such as Chromecast that allow you to use services such as Netflix, gaming consoles such as Playstation, or set-top boxes, for example — to your sync box, then the sync box to your TV to watch your lights dance, flash, dim, and brighten with the content on your TV screen.

    What do I need to be able to sync my smart lights with the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box?

    Getting started with the sync box is as easy as 1-2-3.

    1. Install Philips Hue color-capable smart lights and a Hue Bridge V2

    2. Connect the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box to your HDMI devices and TV

    3. Download the Hue Sync mobile app

    What is the best way to set up my entertainment area?

    You can create an Entertainment area in the Hue app — it will tell your Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box how many lights you have, where and at which height the lights are located, and how the sync box should use them while syncing. For the best results, we recommend using several Hue color-capable smart lights placed around your TV (the Hue Play light bars are a great place to start!).
