  • Overview+-

    Whether it’s soft light for a romantic dinner or bright and cheery when hosting a gathering, the Hue Personal Wireless Lighting Kit makes it easy to set the right mood every time. Limited only by your imagination, Hue light bulbs can generate up to 16 million colors, and they can be controlled via a Wi-Fi connection and an app on your smartphone or tablet.

    Need to relax? Hue can create just the right mood. Want to stay focused? Let Hue design the perfect atmosphere. It can even gradually brighten light in the morning to mimic a sunrise, peacefully awakening you instead of the startling blare of an alarm clock. When away from home, turn your lights on and off with your mobile device so it looks like someone is home. With geofencing technology, you can also program them to come on when you’re arriving or to turn off when you’re leaving.

    Download the app
    Using the app (hue by Philips), available through the itunes App Store and Android Google Play, you can pull up your photos and use them to create lighting scenes in your home. Just tap on a color in one of the photos and the amazing Hue light bulbs will mimic it.

    Save your scenes
    You can even save the lighting scenes as you create them, then group them together to make new and interesting color and light combinations all within one room.

    Light Recipes
    When you need just the right setting in a pinch, call up a Light Recipe. Choose from Relax, Energize, Concentrate and Reading.

    Installation is a snap
    Hue by Philips couldn’t be easier to install. Just pick the lights or lamps you want to work with Hue and screw in the wireless bulbs. The bridge simply gets plugged into your wireless router. It can control up to 50 bulbs at a time. Download the app (Hue by Philips), and you’re ready to set the perfect mood.

    Each Hue bulb lasts up to 15,000 hours, or about 13.7 years based on typical usage of three hours per day. The average 60-watt incandescent bulb lasts up to 1,000 hours—less than one year based on typical usage.

    This kit has what you need to get started with Hue.
