Our 10 years of leading the smart home industry and commitment to continuously investing in our products’ features, security, and reliability make Philips Hue a brand you can trust.
Trust and responsibility
We believe privacy is a fundamental human right, and we’re committed to protecting yours.
Philips Hue Secure cameras use end-to-end encryption (E2EE) by default. All video, audio, and snapshots are encrypted with a key that only you have.
Secure cameras feature internal software that helps prevent potential hacking, phishing attempts, or code manipulation.
All data, including your video clips, are stored in our secure Philips Hue cloud. Videos are deleted automatically after 30 or 60 days, depending on your plan.
Secure key storage
Your encryption key — the unique passphrase that's generated when you activate your camera — is stored in a secure memory area.
We’ve built tools to give you complete control of your data — from creating your account to simply using our app.
Breached password detection
If your Philips Hue account uses the same username and password as another service whose data was breached, we’ll let you know so you can lock your account. Don’t worry — we don’t know your password.
Manage the members of your household and their permissions within your system. You can allow some members to only control the lights, and give others access to your security system.
We support — and recommend — two-factor authentication (2FA) for your Philips Hue account. You’ll be asked to verify your login, either through an authenticator app or SMS.
A type of privacy zone for your cameras, a Blackout zone excludes certain parts of your camera’s video feed, such as a window or bedroom doorway.
