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.
Add an additional 600-lumen LED bulb to your hue lighting system. This 9W bulb is just as bright as a 40W incandescent bulb and has a long-lasting bulb life of 15000 hours. It easily screws into E26 medium-screw base light sockets to replace preexisting bulbs. Once you have installed your Philips hue Wi-Fi 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.

Wink App Compatible vs. Wink App Ready
Products that are Wink App Compatible must be connected through a Wink HUB. The Wink HUB allows these products to connect with the Wink App (available for iOS and Android) and interact with other Wink App Compatible or Wink App Ready products – see below. They use communications like Z-Wave, Zigbee and ClearConnect to improve battery life and extend the range of smart products around your home. The Wink HUB allows them to speak the same language, so you can easily control them – and customize their interactions – all from the Wink App. Click on the icon to the left for additional Wink App Compatible products. Products that are Wink App Ready have Wink technology built in and can connect directly to the Wink App (available for iOS and Android) without the assistance of the Wink HUB. Once connected, the Wink App allows you to interact with other Wink App Ready or Wink App Compatible products. Wink App Ready devices use Wi-Fi to connect to your wireless router and communicate with the Wink App - so you can easily control them and and customize their interactions.

- I like it, but... Review by Darko B.
I like it, but...
I like the lights a lot, but sometimes they lose connection with my Zipatile. I asked Philips support about that through my friend, and I probably bought bulbs with error, I return them and got new ones, and now they work well. I have to give it 4 stars, because I think they can be better.

- Fine Colors of HUE Review by Elliot
Fine Colors of HUE
Love these lights. I have 5 total at the moment and I think they are awesome. They can be any color you could imagine and you can create awesome pre-made scenes for different activities. I have a dark purple, low brightness scene for watching movies and a separate one for when my kids are going to sleep. They are nice but a bit expensive. Overall I'm satisfied with them.
