Meet the Friends of Hue

Friends of Hue partnerships will ensure integration between connected products delivering exciting new lighting experiences – it will simply work together for you hassle-free. No need for lengthy processes or sneaky workarounds. Philips have collaborated closely with different brands to provide a seamless, painless, integration with multiple devices.

Connect your Philips Hue lights to your Nest Cam, Nest Learning Thermostat and Nest Protect to make your home more thoughtful, more comfortable and more responsive to you and your habits.

Think of light turning on to simulate your presence when you are away; light flashing yellow in case of a smoke alarm then dimming down to a red state which is best to help navigate through a smoky environment. Think of having your Philips Hue lights set to a relax mode whilst the temperature in your bathroom rises or voice-control your lights through Apple Siri or Amazon Alexa.

Link your Philips Hue to other HomeKit enabled accessories or a Logitech Harmony remote and take control of your home.

In fact, the possibilities are limitless: stimulating your senses, lighting your moments or even automating for peace of mind.
