GUIDE SMART HOME

A guide on how to control your smart lighting

It’s time to experience light in a new way by upgrading your home to a smart home system. Bluetooth bulbs that screw straight into the socket of a standard light makes getting started so easy.

The full range of smart home functions is accessible with a wireless bridge, like the Philips Hue Smart Hub. You can check when lights are off while you’re out and about, program light routines or even control the lighting with your voice.


Light Control With Philips Hue

In terms of light control, Philips Hue is the most well-known Smart home system. From 16 million colours and a wide range of white tones, including daylight white and warm white, lights create the perfect ambience for every occasion with the help of a Philips Hue bulb.

Philips Hue works with Bluetooth, but when a bridge is added, the system shows what it's really made of. By giving you remote control from anywhere in the world, you can pick your own lighting routines. This feature is all possible via voice control or with a click of an app.

Give smart bulbs a try.

You can enjoy the entire smart home world by connecting a bridge to your home WiFi network. The best part is that you can integrate up to 50 bulbs into the system.

Philips Hue might be the best-known brand for Smart lighting. But when combined with other brands, like Q Smart Home and Ink, the result is even more extraordinary. It is important to note that you can control these systems separately with or without a Hue bridge or other accessories.

These colour-changing bulbs and lights from Tint can change by remote control to brighten the kitchen, living room, home office or outdoor areas. You can control the colours via a smartphone app within the ZigBee system.

We often use the same lamp for different activities, whether you're reading a magazine, playing a game, eating or relaxing. You can change the brightness and light colour of a Smart lamp without an external dimmer.
