    • 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 two color-changing LED lightstrips. Friends of hue Lightstrips are flexible enough to bend around any solid surface and feature integrated adhesive tape. They can be run along shelving, in display cases, even around a clock or favorite piece of art to add a unique touch to any space. These 12W LED lightstrips deliver just as much power as a 15W incandescent bulb at just a fraction of the energy costs. The strips disperse 120 lumens of light for a soft, warm glow. To power up these lights, plug the strip into a nearby 120V outlet.

      Once you have installed the Philips hue WiFi Bridge and placed the lightstrips in the desired location, 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, the Friends of hue Lightstrips 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.

      Homeowners also don’t have to be home to control these lights. The Myhue portal is an online control panel that connects you to hue from anywhere in the world. Turn on lights as a security precaution while you’re away or turn them on when you pull into the driveway. The portal also saves your personalized scenes and keeps your bridge software regularly updated.

      The hue family of lighting is not just a standalone lighting system, it can integrate into home automation systems including Wink, Vera, CastleOS, Revolv and for very advanced users the Universal Devices ISY controllers. Add hue to your IFTTT app and truly unlock the potential of this powerful family of lights. If you want to add more bulbs, go ahead! One bridge can control up to 50 bulbs at once. The Philips hue series features tons of bulbs to match your style. The hue family includes:

          •  hue BR-30 Light Bulb
          •  hue Lux Dimmable Bulb
          •  hue A19 LED Light Bulb
          •  Friends of hue Lightstrips

      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. Click on the icon to the left for additional Wink App Ready products.

      Wink App

      The Wink App allows you to access and control all of your Wink App Compatible and Wink App Ready devices. You can monitor devices while you’re away, unlock doors remotely, adjust your thermostat, receive text/email status alerts and more. From the Wink App you’ll have 24/7 monitoring capabilities of your home, provided you have internet access to connect to the App. The App is available in the iTunes App Store for devices running iOS 7.0 or later (optimized for iPhone) and in the Google Play Store for devices running Android 2.3 and up.
