In order to get the most out of your smart lighting system and keep it even more secure, signing in to a Philips Hue account will become an essential part of controlling your lights — and here’s what you can do with one.
Add a layer of security
Invite new users to your account, remove user permissions when they’re no longer needed, or add two-factor authentication to keep your data even more secure.
Stay connected, wherever you are
Get access to your smart lights whether you’re at home or away. Turn lights on and off, check up on your system, or adjust your settings in the Hue app — from anywhere with an internet connection.¹
Sign in, manage access easily
It’s an easy sign-in experience on multiple devices, and you only have to press the button on the Bridge the first time you sign in. You’re in control, and will always be able to see who has access to your smart lighting system.
