Use the Philips Hue app to schedule light routines whenever you’re away. Your smart lights will turn on at the times you’ve selected — and sometimes a few minutes before or after — to truly mimic your presence in the house.
Set your Philips Hue app to recognize when you’re nearing home. Before you even step out of your car or walk up the path, your selected smart lights turn on automatically.
The Hue app gives you complete control over your lights, even if you're not home. Switch your lights off and on remotely using just the app to ensure your home is always lit the way you want it.
When connected to the Hue Bridge, you can pair your lights with Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and the Google Assistant and control your lights using just your voice. Simple voice commands let you turn your lights on and off, dim or brighten your lights, and even set a light scene.
Coordinate your smart lights with the sun or ensure you get more light out of your day. Set timers to turn your lights on and off whenever you’d like, or simply sync your lights with the sunrise or sunset.
The Hue Bridge is an essential component to a personal Philips Hue smart lighting system. It is the brains of the operation, communicating with both your smart light bulbs and the Hue app to ensure that everything works together. It also enables smart home automation features like scheduling routines and timers.
