- What's Included
Lighting control just got interesting. The Philips hue system lets you play with light, giving you complete control over color scheme, brightness, and tone. With an array of millions of color and white light options to choose from, you can display a relaxing sunset in the living room, bright colors for a party, or just find the perfect reading light. Pull colors directly from a favorite photo, alter shades and brightness to help you unwind or focus, keep your home safe when you’re away—with Philips hue, you can customize lighting to conveniently match your needs. Philips hue is based on the ZigBee, a low power, safe, and reliable technology to control your lights.
This kit includes three, 600-lumen A-19 LED bulbs each with a bulb life of 15000 hours. These 9W bulbs are just as bright as a standard 40W bulb, providing tons of bright light at a fraction of the energy cost. These bulbs easily screw into E26 medium-screw base light sockets to replace preexisting bulbs. Philips hue is based on the ZigBee, a low power, safe, and reliable technology to control your lights. This kit comes with a sleek, easy-to-operate WiFi bridge that allows you to control lighting with your favorite iOS, Android, Windows phone, and Kindle devices. The bridge connects directly to your WiFi router using an included Ethernet cable to remotely manage the color changing bulbs from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection.
Once you have installed your Philips hue WiFi Bridge and screwed in your bulbs, it’s time for the fun part. Choose your favorite color schemes, raise or lower light intensity, and control your bulbs all at once or individually all with the Philips hue app. If you want to turn off all the lights in your home without getting out of bed, or want to set a timer to turn on lights, all you have to do is pull out your favorite iOS, Android, Windows phone, and Kindle devices and press a button. If you find yourself having trouble getting up in the morning, these bulbs can also function as alarm clocks, gradually brightening to mimic the rising sun for a gentle wake-up call. With this app, lighting control really is in the palm of your hand.
