The possibilities of Philips Hue smart lighting are endless, but the set-up – whether with Bluetooth or the Bridge – is simple. Find out how Philips Hue works and how to get started with smart light.
Smart light – your way
Philips Hue brings smart lighting to everyday homes, allowing anyone to create special moments and automate with light. Start with Philips Hue your way: Bluetooth or Bridge. And no worries: even if you start with a Bluetooth-controlled system, you can always add a Bridge.
Philips Hue with Bluetooth
The easy start to smart light
A Bluetooth-controlled system can control lights within Bluetooth range. Set the mood of a single room with any Philips Hue Bluetooth-compatible bulb and the Hue Bluetooth app, which controls up to 10 lights.
Philips Hue with Bridge
Unlock the full experience
Adding a Hue Bridge activates the built-in Zigbee network – a more advanced way to control your lights – and unlocks the full suite of smart lighting features: add up to 50 bulbs, set routines and more.
