What could I do with this kit?
This Philips Hue kit lets you manage your lights at home by using your voice or through the app. Included in the kit is two Philips Hue white bulbs and the Hue Bridge 2.0, the bulbs interact with the Bridge via Wi-Fi, and through the app you can control various aspects of your lighting. For example, you can turn off or on your lights or adjust the brightness while you’re at home or away.

How do I control this kit?
The whole Philips Hue eco system can be controlled through the free Philips Hue app, which is available for Android 2.3 or higher and Apple iOS 7 or higher devices. This allows you to control your lights from anywhere around the world, which provides you with peace of mind when you’re working late or just want to check that you haven’t forgotten to turn them off. You can also schedule lights to turn on, giving off the appearance that you are already home, which can be used as a security measure. Schedule your lights to gradually turn off at night, so you don’t have to manually turn all your lights off individually – that means more time getting comfortable in bed.

What is the difference between this kit and previous versions?
Being able to manage your lights by talking to Siri (only for iOS 9 or higher devices) is what sets this kit apart from its predecessors. You can ask Siri to turn off or on your lights remotely as well, if you own an Apple TV. This is all thanks to the included Hue Bridge 2.0 supporting Apple HomeKit. What this feature also facilitates is the communicating between all Apple HomeKit devices, allowing you to interconnect products to change their state if just one of them notices an event.

What is the running life of the supplied light bulbs?
The LED bulbs supplied in this kit can radiate 800 lumens of light, which is equivalent to a 60W incandescent light bulb. The benefit that these LED bulbs have over the traditional alternative is the 25,000 hours of run time and the A grade energy efficiency rating, saving you money over time.

How simple is the installation?
Swap your current light bulbs sitting in your E27 Edison screw light fittings with the two Philips Hue bulbs supplied. Setup the Hue Bridge, and then install the app. The whole installation process is straightforward and easy to do. If you own the previous Hue Bridge any settings you have can be transferred over to this Hue Bridge 2.0, reducing the need to manually entering any preferences you have already set before.

Hue Bridge 2.0 can connect to up to 50 Philips Hue lights and 10 accessories. Any existing Hue lights bulbs and accessories are compatible. This gives you the ability to customise and build the ideal home lighting environment for you.

Does this change colours?

Asked by: ydwi
No, these are the white only bulbs, you can change the warmth of the white but these would not be multicoloured bulbs, if you are wanting the colour changing bulbs you would need; http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/philips-hue-white-and-colour-ambience-e27-starter-kit-a92wl
