How Hue works
Turn on your peace of mind
Philips Hue welcomes you home and lets you control your lights from your bedroom to your backyard. It even makes it seem like you’re home when you’re not. It’s all about simplifying your life.
Turn on your moments
Philips Hue can wake you up and help you energize, read, concentrate and relax. Customize your daily routines into moments you can enjoy.
Turn on your imagination
There are limitless possibilities to turn your everyday lighting into an extraordinary experience. And with hundreds of apps to choose from, the only real limit is your imagination.
Philips Hue meets Apple HomeKit
The new square-shaped Philips Hue bridge supports the hardware authentication required for Apple HomeKit and enables all your Philips Hue lights to work with Apple HomeKit technology. So, if you have the round-shaped Philips Hue bridge and want to use Apple HomeKit, you will need to get your hands on the new bridge. Once it's installed, you can discover the new possibilities of voice-control through Siri, or link Philips Hue to other HomeKit enabled accessories.
How Hue works
Wireless LED light bulbs bring hue to life in all shades of white and every colour in the spectrum. They look amazing and are practical too – they dim, flash, pulse and are available in E27 and GU10 fittings. For something a little bit different, try LivingColors Bloom, Iris and LightStrips.
The bridge is the heart of the hue system – it’s literally the bridge between your app and the bulbs. Linked to your home WiFi connection via your router, it can connect up to 50 bulbs at a time, not to mention hue’s other accessories, like the hue tap. The bridge also connects your system to the wider world. Control your lights remotely or link them up to the web, newsfeeds or even your email.
The key to controlling hue is in the palm of your hand. Use the app to change colours, brightness, functions and everything between. Control bulbs individual or all together, find the right shade of light to suit your mood or pick the perfect tone to match the moment. You can even select a colour from a photo and recreate it in your room.
