Philips Hue and Matter
Simplify your smart home experience
Matter creates a simplified connected experience between Philips Hue and other smart home products. It offers easier interoperability between supported smart home devices in a reliable and secure manner.
Philips Hue Bridge will support Matter
The Philips Hue Bridge unlocks it all — including Matter. The Philips Hue Bridge will support Matter with a software update, meaning that your Hue lights and accessories automatically support Matter, too.¹
Easily integrate with other smart home devices
You can connect to all the favorites — Amazon Alexa, Apple Home, and Google Assistant — in addition to other smart home devices and apps that support Matter. Including those to come in the future.
A leader in smart lighting
Philips Hue and our parent company, Signify, are members on the board of Connectivity Standard Alliance (formerly known as the Zigbee Alliance). As an active member of the Matter steering committee, we have contributed to the development, testing, and standardization of this new standard.

Already have a Philips Hue Bridge? Then you’re all set! You’ll get the software update that enables Matter automatically, so there’s nothing additional you need.
All Philips Hue products — including both new and existing ones — will work with Matter if connected via Philips Hue Bridge.²
