What can I do with this light strip kit?
If you’re looking to add lighting into furniture, kitchen cabinets or any other décor and you have a Philips Hue Bridge, then this Philips Hue Lightstrip would be perfect for you. Add a splash of colour to your room and create the ambience you want, with a broad range of 16 million colours to choose from. Outputting 1,600 lumens of light you get great coverage from this 2m light strip. Once linked up to your Philips Hue Bridge (not included), you can control this light strip from anywhere around the world with the dedicated app.

How can I control this kit?
The whole Philips Hue eco system can be controlled through the Philips Hue app, which is available for Android 2.3 or later and Apple iOS 7 or later devices. You can turn the light strip off or on and schedule it to turn on at certain times. The broad spectrum of colours lets you select the right light for certain situations, helping you to feel energised or relaxed.

Philips Hue also works with IFTTT (If This Then That). This lets you link the lightstrip to react to certain tasks from apps, websites and devices. For example you could set the light strip to blink when you’ve received an email from a specific address.

How long will this last?
The LED technology used across the lightstrip means it will last for up to 20,000 hours. Operating at 20.5W of energy and having an A grade energy efficiency rating provides you with a reliable lighting source that will not cost too much to run.

Is it easy to install?
With the adhesive backing, installation takes a matter of seconds. You can shape and bend the light strip around corners of your home or décor. You can even extend the Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus to up to 10m by adding 1m extensions (Order Code: A21UF), giving you the ability to cover larger areas and increase the number of applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For TV Back Lighting I used this in conjunction with another 1m Lightstrip for my 65 inch TV. 3M is enough for top and both sides, but not at the bottom, which was fine for me as I use a stand. What a difference it makes for watching your TV having a back light. Much easier on the eye. It's an expensive item, but all my other lighting is also Philips hue so I wanted it to be compatible with the rest. All totally controllable with my Amazon Echo. Totally convenient, absolutely love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light shame they don't start up on the same scene you set them too! Great light easy to use and connect, an amazing range of colours. The down side is they don't remember the scene they were shut down on so restart bright, hopefully this will be fixed with an update. I would have given 5 stars if this was resolved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lights I bought these to add to my growing collection of Hue lights. They are very bright - I'm using two lightstrips as the main lighting in our loft den. The only issue is that the self adhesive strips are fine on clean perfectly flat surfaces, but not on old wooden rafters. However I bought a roll of 3m 9088 high performance double sided tape. This is really strong and will stick the lights to anything - including rafters. The range of colours is great, although most of the time they're set to warm white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just another level of versatility to add to the hue family. I use this lightstrip as a booklight secured to my headboard. It brings a lot to my room, it doesn't look the same with out it. It just changes the look of a room so much and so effortlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing! I love this! Used along with other hue lights in my room/household, they all work so well together. Definitely recommend!

Can I use the extension kit on its own or do I need to light strip plus too.  I already have hue lights around the house.

Asked by: Kelly
You require the Lightstrip Plus first, this is just to add extra length to the light strip

Hi, Recently bought a new home & looking at redoing the kitchen. I was looking at the Phillips Hue Lightstrip, is there a way to makes these hidden, what i mean by that is there plugged into mains via a plug from what i can tell. Please help

Asked by: Robert
These are plugged into the mains but the wire from the strip to the mains has a good amount of length to be able to hide. I would suggest checking online installation tutorials of this product.

Is it compatible with Amazon alexa

Asked by: Fondo2
This would be just an extension cable, so on it's own it would not. However the Hue lighting system is, so as long as you have a Hue Hub, included in the starter kit linked below, then you would be able to control the light strip with an Alexa device using the Hue skill.

Can I control this via me Echo, using my existing Lightwave RF Bridge, or would I have to buy a Phillips Hue Bridge ?

Asked by: Bob The Bus Driver
This would require a Philips Hue Hub to operate.

do these show the individual light spots under a kitchen cabinet or would it be best to put them in a channel diffuser/extrusion?
