In the morning

In the morning

Use the timer option and turn hue into your morning wake up call. Set your lights to gradually brighten over time, waking you up in a rather more civilised fashion. Better still, you can create a scene from the image of a dawn sun and turn hue into your own personal sunrise.

Welcome home

Welcome home

If you're working late or maybe out for the night, you can simply turn your wireless lights on or off remotely. That way you can make it look like you're home, even when you're not. You can also set your lights to come on at a set time. Ideal if you're away on holiday but you want people to think you're still in. Or maybe just before you arrive home from work. That way you'll never come back to a dark house again.

Relive a favourite moment

Relive a favourite moment

With hue, any photo on your smartphone becomes a palette to paint with light, enabling you to bring back the memories of an epic vacation or capture the vibrancy of a summer day. Drag the picker across a photo to select a colour within the image. Or use the white light scale to pick a perfect tone. Your selected wireless bulb will reflect that choice instantly. And once you're happy with the scene, simply save it to use again.

Control from your iOS, Android smart devices or/and your Kindle

The Philips hue personal wireless lighting system lets you control your lights wirelessly from anywhere in your house. Be it from the living room, the dining table or from your bedroom, your smart device can control any light connected to the bridge.

Upgradeable – always up to date

Philips hue is based on the ZigBee, a low power, safe, and reliable technology to control your lights. Updates to both software and firmware are done wirelessly and seamlessly directly to your hue bulb or bridge.

Timer function – use light to help you through your sleeping routine

The timer function not only lets you preset what time your hue bulbs come on - for light when you arrive home in the evening. It also lets you change your lights gradually over time. Use it to turn hue into your wake up light. Preset it for gradual brightness intensity to bring you out of your sleep in a soft and gentle way vs the sudden beep or ring of a conventional alarm clock. At night, you can preset the timer to turn your lights off gradually to help you fall asleep naturally.

Light dynamics – enjoy dynamic light effects synced to your moment

Functional light for every occasion – scientifically proven light recipes

hue isn’t just about lighting up your home. It also offers you the biological benefits of light. The ‘Light Recipes’ create the ideal environment for your different needs.
