What Can hue Do for You?
In the morning...
Use the timer option and turn hue into your morning wake up call. Set your lights to gradually brighten over time, waking you up in a rather more civilised fashion. Better still, you can create a scene from the image of a dawn sun and turn hue into your own personal sunrise.
If you're working late or maybe out for the night, you can simply turn your wireless lights on or off remotely. That way you can make it look like you're home, even when you're not. You can also set your lights to come on at a set time. Ideal if you're away on holiday but you want people to think you're still in. Or maybe just before you arrive home from work. That way you'll never come back to a dark house again.
Relive a favourite moment...
With hue, any photo on your smartphone becomes a palette to paint with light, enabling you to bring back the memories of an epic vacation or capture the vibrancy of a summer day. Drag the picker across a photo to select a colour within the image. Or use the white light scale to pick an ideal tone. Your selected wireless bulb will reflect that choice instantly. Once you're happy with the scene, simply save it to use again.
