What do I get with this Philips Hue product?
This Philips Hue white and colour ambience starter kit contains everything you’ll need to get started and turn on your imagination. Discover the amazing things that you can do, with both white and coloured light, now with even richer colours for superior scene setting. This kit includes the Philips Hue Bridge, all the necessary cables and three E27 bulbs. The Philips Hue Bridge can support up to 50 Philips Hue bulbs and up to seven Philips Hue accessories, such as the Hue Tap switch. The Hue Tap switch is an accessory that you can add to the Philips Hue wireless lighting system so that you can control your Hue lights without the use of your smart device.

What is the difference between the old Philips Hue Bridge and the new Philips Hue Bridge?
Apart from its obvious design alteration from the old round-shaped Hue Bridge to the new square-shaped Hue Bridge, there are a number of improvements in the new Hue Bridge. The new Bridge still offers all the existing features and compatibility with existing Hue lights, Hue Tap switches and Hue wireless dimmer switches. The new Bridge has more internal memory and a more powerful processor than the old version, these hardware upgrades mean that the new Philips Hue Bridge meets the hardware requirements needed to be compatible with Apple HomeKit technology.

What is Apple HomeKit?
Apple HomeKit provides an easy and secure way to control HomeKit-enabled accessories using Siri on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. You can create your own scenes to control your home settings – for example to turning off the lights and locking your doors, closing the garage door and setting the thermostat to a certain temperature with a single command. The HomeKit compatibility means that your Philips Hue wireless lighting system can now be part of those scenes.

With Apple HomeKit compatibility you can also use Siri to control your Philips Hue lights and switch them on or off, dim or brighten them, and even change the colours using voice commands. You can also export your Philips Hue scenes to HomeKit, and recall them using Siri.

What can I do with the Philips Hue lights in my home?
Choose from 16 million colours in the Hue app to match the light perfectly to both your mood and the occasion. Pick out the key colours of your favourite photo or artwork, and match the lights to the colour scheme. You can also save your favourite light settings and combinations so that you can recall them whenever you want with just a tap of the finger.

Create the perfect ambience for any moment with a range of beautiful natural whites. You can use the Philips Hue app to set any shade of white light imaginable, from a cool energising daylight, to a relaxing warm tone. Take total control by setting the tone and the brightness, not too dark so that it’s perfect for you at any given moment.

What can I do with Philips Hue for myself?
Light influences our moods and behaviours as well as our alertness and routines. Using the Philips Hue app, you can set the light that is optimal for you at any given moment. It helps you energise, concentrate, read and relax. Customise your daily routines into moments that you can enjoy.

Philips Hue can help you get out of bed in the nicest of ways. The gradually increasing light intensity gives you the feeling that you are waking naturally, with the sunrise, rather than the rude awakening of an alarm ringing out of nowhere. This will help ease your sleeping routine and wake up gently for a fresher start to each and every day.

What kind of control does Philips Hue give me?
With the Philips Hue app, you can remotely control your lights from wherever you are. You can also check to see if you have forgotten to switch your lights off before you left home, and if you did forget – you can switch them off right there. You can switch your lights on remotely if you are working late and now with geofencing technology, you can even set your lights to welcome you home, or switch off automatically when you leave.

By downloading a third party app you can discover the amazing things that you can do with Philips Hue. Sync your light to your favourite music and watch your lights dance with the music, see how they react to the rhythm and turn your home into a dancefloor. You can also sync your lights to produce effects like dimming and colour changes when you watch TV shows, films, play games and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these! I love how fun and useful these lights are. I've spread them around my home and my Husband and I have linked them with our individual phones so we can both control them all. It's so easy to set up and works really well. I like that the colours can be changed and even set to emulate a specific picture of your own. The slow fade alarm is also really great. I would love to buy some more of these lights!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for every mood Not really sure where to start with the Philips White and Colour Ambience Starter Kit. I do love a bit of tech and once I’d seen these advertised I knew I would get them eventually. Not just for me to play with but because the kids could also have fun in their room ;-) Everything was quick and easy to set up and I had the app on everyone’s device within minutes. I instantly fell in love with my new toy and started to make Scenes and see how the room looked using different colours and brightness. Meanwhile the kids were having a dicso in their room lol You can set up routines for waking up or going to sleep so you never need to turn the lights on again. I have set up different timers for week days and weekends because the kids go to sleep later. They love it. The worst thing about them is they make ALL my other lights look rubbish and I’m desperate to get loads more for the rest of the house. They are definitely worth the investment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Amazing set of light bulbs. The price outlay is big but 100% worth it. Once you have played around with these and messed with all the features within the app and 3rd party apps you won't be disappointed. Start a disco, have a firework display, relax, wake up easier in the morning... a great investment!
