Turn on your peace of mind

Get started with the Philips Hue white starter kit and experience peace of mind by controlling your lights wherever you are. It's all about simplifying your life and giving you peace of mind in smart and useful ways.






Away-from-home control

You can control your lights remotely wherever you are. Check if you have forgotten to switch your lights off before you left your home, and switch them on if you are working late. With geofencing technology, your lights can even welcome you home or switch off automatically when you leave your home. It's all about simplifying your life and giving you peace of mind in smart and useful ways.


Set light schedules for easy home automation

Philips Hue can make it seem like you're at home when you're not, using the schedule function in the Philips Hue app. Set the lights to come on at a pre-set time, so the lights are on when you arrive home. You can even set rooms to light up at different times. And of course, you can let the lights turn off gradually in the night, so you never have to worry whether you've left any lights on.



Smart control

Connect your Philips Hue lights with the bridge and start discovering the endless possibilites. Control your lights from your smartphone or tablet via the Philips Hue app, or add switches to your system to activate your lights. Set timers, notifications, alarms, and more for the full Philips Hue experience


Discover the Apple HomeKit features for Philips Hue

The Philips Hue white starter kit is compatible with Apple HomeKit technology. Ask Siri to turn on or dim your lights or recall presets without touching a single button. Via third party apps you can even link your lights to other Apple HomeKit enabled devices.


Connect up to 50 Hue bulbs and lamps

You can connect up to 50 lights and 10 accessories to the Philips Hue bridge (included). Simply begin with any of the available starter kits and start adding Philips Hue products. You can then control your lights at the swipe of a finger with the intuitive Philips Hue app for iOS and Android smart devices. Philips Hue is based on ZigBee, a low power, safe and reliable technology for controlling your lights. New features and improvements are continuously added to the system. Updates to both software and firmware are done wirelessly and seamlessly directly to your Philips Hue product.
