Using Philips Hue with Z-Wave

Using Z-Wave and Philips Hue Together

A few months ago we launched a new series of guides aimed at integrating different technologies together.

This time we're focusing on the fantastic range of devices from Philips Hue - you'll recall that we're big fans of this lighting system and all of us at Vesternet use it in our own homes!

Let's start by looking at how integrating Philips Hue devices with your existing Z-Wave based Home Automation system can benefit your Smart Home:

  • Use the best pure white and colour LEDs on the market today along side your Z-Wave devices

  • Control Philips Hue devices from your existing Scene logic

  • Save electricity by using geo-fencing to turn off all lighting and appliances when you are away from home

Check out our full overview for more details!

That's all for now, see you soon ................. wait, we're only kidding - as usual at Vesternet we've gone the extra mile and spent the last few weeks bringing together a whole host of information to benefit customers that have purchased Philips Hue products from us.

In the following in-depth guides we'll take you step-by-step through the processes to link your Philips Hue devices with your VERA or Fibaro Z-Wave controllers, easily creating a hybrid system.

And there's more!

Since the Philips Hue system comes with a comprehensive API, we've dug deep under the hood in order to give you some real gems.  Take a look and see how to unlock the full potential of the Philips Hue Tap and Dimmer devices:
