From the Manufacturer

Meet hue

The Philips hue ecosystem combines brilliant LED light with intuitive technology and it puts them both in the palm of your hand. Together, the bulbs, the bridge and the app will change the way you use light. Forever.

Experiment with shades of white, from invigorating blue to soothing yellow. Or play with all the colours in the hue spectrum. hue can wake you up. Help protect your home. Relive your favourite memories. Even improve your mood. It’s stunning. It’s smart. And it’s tailored for you.

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.

Welcome home...

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 a perfect tone. Your selected wireless bulb will reflect that choice instantly. And once you're happy with the scene, simply save it to use again.

Expand your ecosystem

You can connect up to 50 bulbs or lamps to your Philips hue bridge. Simply begin with any of the available starter kits and start adding in any combination, Philips hue bulbs, Philips Friends of hue Bloom, Iris or LightStrips. With a tap of your finger, you can now control any connected lighting in your home.

Create your own light settings

Use your favourite picture to generate the ideal colour scene for special occasions. Go back in time and relive those moments by uploading your own photos and tuning the lights accordingly. Add up to 50 lights to every setting and recalling, is at a simple tap of the finger

Timer function

The timer function not only lets you preset what time your hue bulbs come on - for light when you arrive home in the evening. It also lets you change your lights gradually over time. Use it to turn hue into your wake up light. Preset it for gradual brightness intensity to bring you out of your sleep in a soft and gentle way vs the sudden beep or ring of a conventional alarm clock. At night, you can preset the timer to turn your lights off gradually to help you fall asleep naturally.

Light dynamics

The hue ecosystem is open for external developers. There is an ever growing number of applications being developed for hue within this community. This has resulted in creative and dynamic lighting schemes opening possibilities such as syncing your lights to your favourite music, incoming mails or tweets, or linking it to many other signals from online feeds.

Safety and security

Make it look like you are at home even when you are miles away. With online access and a tap on the menu screen of your smart device, you can now control your home lighting. Convenience and peace of mind are key.

Light for every occasion

hue isn’t just about lighting up your home. It also offers you the biological benefits of light. The ‘Light Recipes’ create the ideal environment for your different needs. The ‘Reading’ recipe provides the ideal light for reading. Just right to curl up with a good book. ‘Relax’ does exactly that. The soft, soothing glow is the natural antidote to a hectic life. ‘Concentrate’ is a finely tuned combination of colour and brightness, designed to help you focus and remain alert. ‘Energize’ will bathe you in bright and vibrant light for when you need that extra kick.

Up to 16 million colours

Choose from 16 million colours to match your light to the moment. Choose from all possible shades of white, from cold blueish white to a warm and cosy yellow-white. Or wash your walls with all the colours of the hue spectrum.

Customise your lighting

Make your smart lighting work for you. hue eases your life by offering you the possibility to automate light settings. The integrated Geofencing technology toggles the lights off when you leave your house and switches them back on when you’re back. Never come back to a dark home again. By linking it to If This Then That (IFTTT) you add another digital layer to your lighting. Have a bulb flashing when getting an important incoming mail or social media update, program a colour flash when your favourite team scores or have your lights react to the weather forecast. Possibilities are endless.

Size Name: E27 hue Starter kit Verified Purchase
I bought the Philips Hue Starter Kit to add to the integration and automation systems I already have in my home. I'm a bit of a geek!

Product arrived promptly and was set up in less than 10 minutes. It's as simple as screwing in the bulbs, connecting the bridge to your router via the included ethernet cable and getting the Hue app on your chosen device and following the prompts. Bulbs are really flexible in that they have a huge range of colours available and the app allows you to save different colour schemes. A favourite setting for my bedroom light is to set it to the 'Relax' colour scheme and set it to switch off in 30 minutes, fading out for the last nine minutes - a great way to drift off and have the lights switch itself off! Philips have thoughtfully opened the API so there are a wide range of other Hue apps available (at lest on the Apple App Store) with various functions such as disco lights that react to your music and one that monitors your TV and replicates the dominant colours in your lights. If you have a Pebble smart watch, there's even an app for that to control your lights called Huebble. It also has an IFTTT.com channel so your can integrate the system further and setup rules - for example, you can have a bulb perform a colour loop if you are tagged in a Facebook post!

Philips have also extended the Hue range with the 'Friends of Hue' products such as lamps and light strips that integrate with the system.

One things to note is that in this kit the bulbs are E27 screw bulbs which are the larger screw bulbs and not that common in UK households. I have E14 (smaller screw) and B22 adapters to fit them to my lights and they work great although they do add to the size of the bulbs.

Size Name: E27 hue Starter kit
When I first came across the predecessor not the hue range, LivingColors, a couple of years back I immediately thought it was an interesting and neat concept but wasn't sure how it would integrate into my everyday living. There was also a small but still unsightly separate light to plug in and a remote to take around - meaning that when I saw this set that could retrofit into existing lamps I was excited to check them out.

Set up for these bulbs is easy - screw the bulbs into the lamps you're interested in, plug the bridge into your router and the power socket then just press the button and follow the steps on the app. I also managed after searching online and watching numerous videos to connect my previous LivingColors device and remote, a good addition to the set once the wires are hidden away.

Though that's one of the great thing about these bulbs - there are no wires. By retrofitting into your existing lights they are only there when you want them to be. The white light isn't harsh as many LED bulbs are and the dimming capability and colour range is excellent. While the philips app has made some odd choices by focusing on scenes, once you get the hang of these they are actually handy and can change the atmosphere successfully too. If that's not your thing a selection of 3rd party apps and app integrations are available so the likelihood is someone will have done what you're after.

Overall, this is a big step forward from the previous versions of the lighting technology and finally feels like something I'm using regularly. By retrofitting into your home it isn't an unsightly addition and is only there when you need it. The set up and app are both straightforward to use while 3rd parties give you additional functionality making this a very welcome addition to your connected home.

Size Name: E27 hue Starter kit
2 stars means it's a 3 star product with a star off for 1970's customer service attitude (think late 1970's Wimpy Bars - I was 12 at the time) and that's all I can say about this system overall - not including the rediculous price which would take a half-star off to be honest. The concept is appealing and controlable dimmable 16 million colour lighting certainly caught my attention.

Good points: Each lamp is just about bright enough at an equivalent brightness of 53 watts tungstan lamp. The colour spectrum is excellent from the blue-white spectrum 'daylighting' effect to the soft and mellow yellows, reds, blues and so on. The ability to change your lighting effect to suit your mood, activity, and especially the time of day is particularly useful and enjoyable.

The bad points: Lack of information as to how to use/set up/control the system. It's clunky and not at all intuitive. There seems so little info from Philips. The andriod apps will only run on later versions and not 2.2 as I have on my Galaxy S but fine on my tablet. My main gripe is philips software which has no manual or even help screens. Premium prices but with so little customer support. Like a slap in the face; the software looses lamps which were previously visible to the system and suddenly lamps change from the set colour to a default white or seemingly to a colour previously associated with a different scene. Suddenly you can't turn off a lamp or it won't turn on!. I understand wifi limitations but all my lamps are within 21ft of my bridge and this system is designed to control 50 lamps with the lamps in contact with the bridge communicating with the lamps that are not. So why such agro I ask myself?
