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 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.
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.
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.

Set up is easy - plug in the bridge to your router, connect the bulbs to a suitable fitting, download the app and then follow the instructions on the app to link the bridge to your device. You can link many devices to the bridge by following the same procedure - basically you start the app and press the button on top of the bridge. There is also the option to link the app via the internet so that if you are away from home you can still control the lights. This was somewhat more complicated and involved a bit of random clicking to and fro from the app to the website until it started to work. This extra work may be worth it if you want to control the lights whilst you are away - perhaps to give the impression that the house is still occupied. There doesn't seem to be a limit to how many devices can be connected at once either. Every member of the house has their own app. And I was pleasantly surprised to discover that they do not seem to interfere either - we sometimes "argue" over the lighting scheme by choosing one after another on different devices and the system copes very well.
There are some lighting schemes included which are very effective or you can make your own by importing a photo and choosing colours from the photo for each bulb.Read more ›
The system is easy to set up as long as you have an intuitive sense for electronics as there are no instructions until you access the online instructions reading a barcode on your tablet or phone or type it in to your computer! Connect the hub to your router, and note that this needs to be a physically wired connection using an ethernet cable (supplied). A wireless connection to the Hue hub is not possible. The hub also needs to be powered using the supplied mains adapter. The hub should then light up in blue indicating it is connected to your network. Not surprisingly the bulbs should be installed in a GU10 compatible light fittings. The light switch(es) should then be turned on, and for the system to work left permanently on. You then need to download an app to control the bulbs. Android and iOS apps are available from Philips free and are suitable for both tablets and phones. Once the app is downloaded, and active you then need to pair the app with the hub by pressing the single button on the centre of the hub. Note that you need to be connected to the same wifi network using your phone or tablet when pairing. Then you can control the lights. The apps come with instructions to guide you through these latter steps.
The system allows you to:
1. Turn bulbs on or off individually using an Android or iOS app, or using a Philips website once you've registered.

The potential applications are quite wide ranging from a simple wish to match lights to the décor of a room (but don't expect to achieve `paint chart' accuracy) or a mood changer to jazzing up a room for a party or a romantic meal (`as he gazed into her eyes he subtly changed the ambience via his smart phone under the table'). I can see these enlivening a small flat for example by offering an ability to vary the atmosphere.
It's a nicely presented boxed set of bulbs that could have benefitted from a detailed manual rather than the fine print card I had to read with my Grandparents' magnifying glass.
The bulbs (three in this pack) fit easily into GU10 fittings although they have a deeper profile and therefore stand proud rather than sit flush. This jarred slightly to start with but I rarely look at the fitting unless I need to change a bulb. It probably isn't a big deal where I tried them (a kitchen) but it may be more of a challenge in a more conspicuous area like a bedroom spot in the ceiling.
The next step in the setting up process was straightforward: attaching the `hue bridge' to my router using the supplied cable and then plugging it in.Read more ›
