What is hue?
Philips hue is a personalised lighting system that allows you to colour your world. Together, the bulbs, the bridge and the app will change the way you use light. Forever.
Lighting influences moods, creates ambiance and helps keep us secure. Experiment with shades of white, or play with all the colours in the spectrum.
The heart of the hue system. The bridge is literally a bridge between your app and the bulbs. Linked to Wi-Fi via your router, it can connect up to 50 bulbs at a time.
The wireless LED light bulbs bring hue to life. They deliver clear and crisp light. All shades of white. And every colour in the spectrum. As dim or bright as you like.
The key to controlling hue lies in the palm of your hand. Use the apps to change colours, brightness, functions and everything else in between. However you want it.
What can you do with hue?
Philips hue allows you to light your living spaces in rich, vibrant whites and full spectrum colour.
With hue, you get full control over the light in your life. Set the mood. Change the ambience. Feel different. This is what hue can do.

Value Quality PerformanceDarynon 6/10/2016Was hesitant about purchasing this, as the older version had some issues. It's been great so far, and I like that you don't have to use your phone to control the lights, more functionality.
