- What's Included
Lighting control just got interesting. The Philips hue Lux bulb lets you play with white light, giving you complete control over warmth, brightness, and tone. This energy-saving bulb has an average lifespan of 25,000 hours, or approximately 22 years, reliably providing light to match your needs. With an array of white light options to choose from, users can gradually brighten light for a gentle wake-up call or create dimmed settings for a relaxing dinner at home. Find the perfect reading light, 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 accommodate your lifestyle. Philips hue is based on the ZigBee, a low power, safe, and reliable technology to control your lights. In order to operate this bulb, you will need the Philips hue WiFi bridge included in the Hue Starter Kit (Smarthome Item #30371), sold separately.
Add an additional 750-lumen white light LED bulb to your hue lighting system. This 9W bulb is just as bright as a 60W incandescent bulb and easily screws into E26 medium-screw base light sockets to replace preexisting bulbs. According to Philips, the hue bulb uses 80% less energy than a standard incandescent light bulb, saving homeowners money and energy. Once you have installed your Philips hue WiFi Bridge and screwed in your bulbs, it’s time for the fun part. This bulb is great for use in kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms and hallways in your table and floor lamps, open pendant fixtures or ceiling fixtures. 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. With this app, lighting control really is in the palm of your hand.
