Part of Philips Hue lighting collection: Third Generation
The Philips Hue is a bulb which can tune in to your movies and music. Play with light from a wide colour spectrum to set the mood and work in harmony with your lifestyle, all from your smart device.
Turn on your imagination
With 16 million colour variations to choose from, you can set Hue to the mood that suits you. Colours can be saved as 'Scenes', so you can revisit your favourites, or you can choose from the available presets. These 'light recipes' have been proven to create the perfect atmosphere for your needs. The 'Reading' recipe is ideal for curling up with a book, while 'Relax' provides a soothing glow. 'Concentrate' will help you stay alert when working, while 'Energise' bathes you in vibrant lights to revitalise you. This bulb is part of the 'richer colours' range for an even more vivid illumination experience.
Hue works as more than just a colourful light bulb. It can be tailored to your life with alarms, timers and alerts, so you can set Hue to wake you up with a soft sunrise glow, or to turn all of your Hue lights off at bedtime. Hue lights can flash at you to let you know when your food is ready to come out of the oven, or to let you know when your favourite TV show is starting. You can set your lights to come on when you're away, to deter thieves, or control them remotely via the portal, from anywhere in the world. Geofencing technology can be used to turn your Hue lights on as you enter the door. Hue can even be linked to data feeds via the IFTTT (If This Then That) service, to give you a visual alert when you get an important email or when the weather changes.
With the free 'Hue' app you can control your lights with movies and music from anywhere through your iOS and Android smart devices.
And what's more, additional iOS and Android apps can get even more out of your Hue. Ambilight+hue (iOS and Android) can expand your TV viewing experience by extending your Ambilight TV colours to your Hue light bulbs, creating a more immersive experience. Ambify for iOS and hue Disco for Android make Hue react to music, providing you with an instant dance floor.
Please note: Hue bulbs require a separate Hue Bridge to connect to your home network. Hue Bridge can be purchased as part of a Hue Starter Kit.
