    Philips Hue – just one swipe away from the perfect light

    Have you ever found yourself sitting on the underground, wondering whether you turned off the kitchen lights? Have you ever spent your holiday wondering whether you should have left a light on to deter burglars? With Philips Hue, the solution to all of these problems is just a swipe on your smartphone or tablet!

    What is Philips Hue?

    To put it simply, Philips Hue is a state-of-the-art lighting system, which is controlled by an app. It consists of lamps and lights that are connected to one another and can be controlled separately, too. You can use a smartphone or tablet to control up to 50 different Philips Hue products and even choose between 16 million luminous colours and nuances.

    How does Philips Hue work?

    The Bridge stands at the heart of the Hue system. It is connected to your existing router and can be connected to up to 50 different light sources at any one time. Your wireless router is the interface between the Hue Bridge and the Hue app. By connecting your Philips Hue system to the world wide web, you can control your lamps and lights from Honolulu, if you want to! Simply download the free app to your smartphone or tablet and link it to your Bridge. 

    Which Philips Hue products are available?

    The Philips Hue range consists of ceiling lamps, floor lamps, spotlights, strips, recessed spotlights and much more. Philips Hue has all the lights that the heart could desire:

    • Smart light bulbs

      Simply fit your light fittings with Philips Hue bulbs. Even the bulbs from Philips Hue have standard bases for different light sockets. Thus, you can replace traditional light bulbs with an E27 base with E27 LED bulbs from Philips Hue.

    • Switch

      It is great being able to control everything by smartphone, but wouldn’t a switch be good too? With the ‘Philips Hue Tab’, you can have it all. The world’s first wireless, intelligent switch allows you to easily control your Philips Hue lights throughout your home. For example, you can programme customised lighting scenarios. But just because it is a switch, it doesn’t mean it has to be affixed to the wall. You can carry it around with you - and the real show-stopper: Hue Tab doesn’t need batteries and doesn’t need to be plugged into a power point. All you need is the kinetic energy from pressing the button.

    • Dimmer switch

      Would you like to be able to dim the lights without having to leave the sofa? No problem, all you need is a wireless dimmer switch from Philips Hue which is a practical addition to your Philips Hue system. You don’t need a Bridge and there are no complicated installations required. The switch can be used to control up to ten Hue lamps and can be installed on the wall or used as a remote control.

    • Sensor 

      Do you want the light to turn on automatically as you enter the room? Not a problem. Just get a motion detector for Philips Hue lights. It registers movement and controls the light accordingly. The sensor can be affixed using an adhesive strip or a screw on the wall, or simply placed on the sideboard, table or shelf. 

    • Starter kit

      It is easy to set up the Philips Hue system in your home  – all you need is a starter kit. First get the free Hue app. Simply download it to your smartphone or tablet and you are good to go. The starter kit set contains the Hue Bridge, as well as one or more Hue bulbs and lights. Simply connect the components using your existing wireless router and enjoy the most beautiful light!

    How do I use Philips Hue light control to protect my house from burglars?

    Light makes it look like someone is home. With Philips Hue you can easily programme different light scenarios that make it look like someone is in the bedroom or has turned the landing light. You can use Philips Hue to programme and control realistic lighting scenarios from anywhere in the world. Thus, you can ensure that your home never looks empty – who would suspect that the varied room lighting is owed to one of the smartest light systems of our time? After all, burglars prefer buildings that look like no one is at home!

    Can I use Philips Hue as an alarm clock?

    Yes, you can easily programme your wake-up time with Philips Hue and choose to be woken up gently or instantaneously. Did you know that it is better to be woken up by light, as it corresponds with the way people naturally wake up? With Philips Hue, you can upload a photo and be woken up to the colours of the sunrise from your last holiday by the Mediterranean!
