Powerful. Smart in more ways than one.

Instant light response

The Hue Bridge uses Zigbee to communicate with your lights and accessories. Your lights react instantly, and you’ll be able to control them even when your Wi-Fi is down.

Extend your range

Your lights create a mesh network. Each light you add acts as a repeater, so you can extend your lights throughout your home – inside and out.
