What's so special about Philips Hue?

With Philips Hue, managing your lighting is more than just flipping switches. Hue makes it possible to have an efficient and smart lighting system for your whole home:

  • Customizable: Adjust the lighting based on your mood or a particular occasion using just the tip of your finger. This way you can program different shades of light for the morning and the evening. After all, you might prefer a different color or brightness than usual every once in a while. No worries – just change your lighting in the app.
  • Simple installation: No cables or renovations are necessary for getting started with your Philips Hue smart lighting system. Just replace your normal bulbs with these smart lights and enjoy the comfort of smart lighting control.
  • Geofencing: You forgot to turn off the lights before leaving the house? With the geofencing function in Philips Hue products, that’s not a problem anymore. If desired, the app can recognize whether you’re at home using GPS and set the lighting accordingly.
  • Extendable: Philips Hue is an open platform. This means that its lights can be integrated into many smart home systems such as Bosch Smart Home, Google Home, Amazon Echo, Apple HomeKit and innogy SmartHome.

Design your ideal lighting with the Philips Hue app

Philips Hue makes controlling your lighting simpler than ever. Change your lighting in realtime, modify the color or create routines and scenes – all with just your fingertip. For example, you could program the light to turn on as soon as you get home. Thanks to the timer, you can set intervals and automatically trigger certain actions. An integrated mimicking function lets you expand your security system; the app can activate and deactivate lights so that potential burglars think you’re at home.

It’s also possible to manage several lights at once in the app, which makes controlling your lights even simpler. The lights in every room are shown on the home screen and you can define rooms and areas as you like. This gives you the option to manage individual rooms or areas or simply the whole house.


How does the Philips Hue lighting system work?

The heart of Philips Hue smart lighting control is the bridge. It communicates wirelessly with the LEDs. The secure wireless standard ZigBee is used for this, and each connected light extends the reach of the network. This is one of the major advantages of the system – the lights only have to be connected to each other, and not to the Philips Hue Bridge, in order to receive a signal. Only one bridge is needed to control 50 lights and 12 accessories, meaning that even large homes are easily covered.

Four easy steps to a Philips Hue lighting system:

  1. Connect your Philips Hue bridge to the router and power supply
  2. Install the free app on your smartphone
  3. Install your Philips Hue lights
  4. Connect the app with your lights and the bridge

And the Philips Hue system is ready!

Which benefits does the Philips Hue system have?

  • Energy efficiency: Philips Hue lights provide pleasant lighting with low wattage.
  • Creating scenes and routines: You can program the settings for lights in the app. This allows you to activate lighting moods immediately. Additionally, you can create routines using sensors like the Philips Hue motion sensor so that the lights are only on when it’s necessary. A programmed time can also trigger a routine. Thanks to the timer function, Philips Hue lights can be turned on, off, or gradually dimmed at specific times.
  • Operation: Thanks to its internet connection, the lighting system can be controlled from anywhere – even outside your home. Additionally, manual switches can be added to the system so that you can control the lights even when you don’t have your smartphone at hand.
  • Geofencing: Philips Hue products have an integrated geofencing feature for added convenience. This makes it possible to activate certain routines and scenes as soon as you leave the house or arrive home.
  • Voice assistants: Philips Hue devices are compatible with voice assistants, like Google Home, Apple Siri and Amazon Echo. This means you can control your lighting with just a voice command.
  • Expandable: With Philips Hue, the sky is the limit for lighting management. Expand your system with up to 50 lights and accessories or integrate it into an ecosystem with other smart home products.
  • Individual control: The Philips Hue app recognizes all the lights in the house and matches them with the room they are in. This makes it possible to manage an individual light, certain areas, or the whole house. Additionally, you can choose the brightness of your lights individually, based on your mood or the time of day.
  • Color wonders: Philips Hue lights offer the right color of light for every mood. With over 16 million shades, you’re sure to find the right tone.
  • High quality: Quality is a big plus for Philips Hue products. This is reflected in the craftsmanship and longevity of their lights.

Philips Hue meets the voice assistant

Voice assistants from Google, Apple and Amazon have already moved into many homes, and more and more smart devices are now compatible with them. The smart lights from Philips Hue are no exception – they can be controlled with Siri, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. You can turn the lights on or off, dim, and change colors with a simple voice command.

“OK Google, turn the light on in the bathroom.”
“OK Google, dim the lamp in the living room.”
“OK Google, make the light in the kids’ room blue.”
“Siri, set “romantic evening”.”
“Alexa, turn on the light in the bedroom.”
“Alexa, turn on tropical sunset lighting in the living room.”
“Alexa, make the light in the kitchen warmer.”

You’re worried that the lighting systems in the far reaches of your house, such as the roof, the basement or the garden, might run into problems due to a weak Wifi connection? With lights from Philips Hue, that’s never a problem. The smart lights use the energy-saving wireless protocol Zigbee, meaning that a stable Wifi connection is only necessary for the bridge. There’s also no reason to worry that the Zigbee signal won’t reach far enough. Philips Hue lights act as repeaters and strengthen the signal. In this way, your smart light system will work in every part of your home, and even in your garden.

Which Philips Hue product is right for me?


Philips Hue Bridge

The bridge is at the heart of the Philips Hue smart lighting system. You use the bridge to connect your smartphone or tablet to your smart lights. It can be connected to up to 50 lights and can thus illuminate your entire home. The Philips Hue bridge is based on Zigbee technology, which is particularly reliable and energy efficient.

The bridge is necessary for the smart control of your Philips Hue lights and lamps, and you can also use it to control products from other companies.
