Philips Hue can be set-up in minutes - with a Bluetooth-enabled light bulb. For the quick-start option, a bridge isn’t required. This makes it cheaper and allows you to get to know the basic functions, such as dimmable and colour-changing light.
To get started, all you nedd to do is:
Choose your Hue product
Install the Hue app
Connect smartphone and light via Bluetooth (range 10 m)
Router, WLAN or data connection not required
Control your light individually via app
It works for up to 10 lamps and lights indoors (as the distance from the device to the lamp can be too great for outdoor products, the outdoor lights are not Bluetooth-capable). Products build a mesh network with each other so that the range can be extended to over 10m.
