Instant light response

The 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.

Plug the Bridge in to power, connect it to your router, and follow the step-by-step instructions in the Philips Hue app. Changing internet providers or swapping out your router? Everything is stored on the Bridge, so you won’t have to set anything up again.
