Install the LED bulbs in your kitchen and set the tone for a romantic dinner, or set some elegant lighting in your work studio by day and change it up at night for a vibrant gathering.
With the Philips Hue app on your compatible Android or iOS device, you can control your lights even when you're away from home. This kit has what you need to get started with Hue.
A more focused light
The BR30 provides a brighter, more focused beam of light for your interior home and studio lighting designs. Featuring an expanded reflector, these bulbs are well suited for recessed lighting and interior spotlights. Each Hue BR30 bulb is 8 watts and lasts up to 15,000 hours, or about 13.7 years based on typical usage of three hours per day.
Get started easily with the Hue bridge
Screw the Hue BR30 bulbs into your existing standard light bulb sockets and turn the light on with your existing switch. Plug the Hue wireless bridge into a wall outlet and connect it to your modem using the included network cable. Get the Philips Hue app from Google Play™ or the Apple® App StoreSM, link your mobile device to the bridge, find your bulbs (the bridge is compatible with up to 50 bulbs) and name them. Now you're in control.
A personal light show
From the Philips Hue app, create your own lighting design from 16 million color options, or match the colors from a favorite photograph. You can also select a color scheme from a variety of presets, such as beach, relax, blue rain, deep sea.
Adjust your lights away from home as long as your mobile device has an Internet connection. With geofencing, you can also program Hue lights to come on when you're arriving home or to turn off when you're leaving. There's also a timer.
Learn from your lights
Compatible with other apps such as IFTTT (If This Then That), you can set the lights to dim to blue based on the forecast, so you ll know it's going to rain before checking your weather app. Or have your lights blink when you get an email from a specific person.
