Whether it s soft light for a romantic dinner or bright and cheery when hosting a gathering, the Hue Personal Wireless Lighting Kit makes it easy to set the right mood every time. Limited only by your imagination, Hue light bulbs can generate up to 16 million colors, and they can be controlled via a Wi-Fi connection and an app on your smartphone or tablet.

Need to relax? Hue can create just the right mood. Want to stay focused? Let Hue design the perfect atmosphere. It can even gradually brighten light in the morning to mimic a sunrise, peacefully awakening you instead of the startling blare of an alarm clock. When away from home, turn your lights on and off with your mobile device so it looks like someone is home. With geofencing technology, you can also program them to come on when you re arriving or to turn off when you re leaving.

Download the app
Using the app (hue by Philips), available through the itunes App Store and Android Google Play, you can pull up your photos and use them to create lighting scenes in your home. Just tap on a color in one of the photos and the amazing Hue light bulbs will mimic it.

Save your scenes
You can even save the lighting scenes as you create them, then group them together to make new and interesting color and light combinations all within one room.

Light Recipes
When you need just the right setting in a pinch, call up a Light Recipe. Choose from Relax, Energize, Concentrate and Reading.

Installation is a snap

It can control up to 50 bulbs at a time. Download the app (Hue by Philips), and you re ready to set the perfect mood.

Each Hue bulb lasts up to 15,000 hours, or about 13.7 years based on typical usage of three hours per day. The average 60-watt incandescent bulb lasts up to 1,000 hours less than one year based on typical usage.

I love HUE

Steve96317 - 6 years ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

Easy to use and setup. Control lights inside or outside of wifi network. LED Builds last around 15 years! Get creative and use Hue for video lighting, entertain with 3rd party strobe apps or use built-in Hue Lux for mood lighting. Hue offers Geofencing, which is great for auto activating lights when returning home after sunset. Loads of value and defiantly an excellent buy!!!

These look silly and expensive, but are worth every penny!

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

At first, I thought that these were just overkill when it came to lighting. Light bulbs that can change colors. Big whoop. I came to realize that these are far more useful than you could ever imagine. I can change the type of light to suit my mood or I can get excellent task lighting. The colors are fun as well. Also, these work with a service called IFTTT. I will spate you a long drawn out explanation but using this, I can make a light turn on and change cork or even blink when I get a txt or call. You can do so much more with it as well but if you are reading this review, you probably do some research and realize how versitile these are

Amazing for your home!

This makes you think about your home lighting and matching your mood in a new way. It's so easy to adjust your room's lighting right from your phone. The color options are countless, and it's so much fun to show friends and family.

Great energy savings

I really like this setup. LED bulbs make for great energy savings, not to mention the cool colors. Really easy to control from your phone or tablet and you can also set alarms. I have mine set up to go on automatically in the morning. Highly recommend

Lights are needs work

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

I bought these on a whim because they looked cool. After using them I would have to agree with my impulse. The lights were super easy to set up and I was excited about it for sure. The only complaint I have about it is that the official app by Phillips leaves a lot to be desired. Luckily there are other apps which are must better, in my opinion. The lights have a wide range.of colors. The documentation says that they shouldn't be enclosed but this trade off is totally worth it. Some apps don't give you the blues and I have found the the green spectrum sleeves a little bit to be desired. I love the transitions and the fact that they are so customizable. My next step is to get a couple of string lights to frame some of my room. No product is perfect, but this is one if the best uses of wireless I've seen. I would highly recommend the starter set and then the Hue add-ons.
