What can you do with the Hue LightStrips?

The Philips friends of Hue series covers a range of smart lighting products, that work together, allowing you to produce creative and dynamic lighting throughout your home. The Philips Hue LightStrips allow you to light your furniture, fixtures and create complete new light effects. The flexible design can be cut to size, bent, shaped and flexed to suit your needs. Control the intensity and choose from over 16 million shades of colour to produce the ambience you want to highlight a feature or the mood of any decor.

How can you control the Hue LightStrips?

The friends of Hue range gives you control through an intuitive app, available for free, which can operate over your local Wi-Fi via the Hue Bridge. The app offers a number of methods to interact and control your lighting, even allowing you to create a colour palette from any image of your choice. The Hue App is compatible with any iOS 7.0 device or higher including iPhones, iPods and iPads; Android device running 2.3 and higher, and any Kindle device.

The Hue series also functions with the amazing service of IFTTT 'If This Then That'. This tool allows you to string together custom tasks from apps, websites and devices. An example would be to setup your Hue LightStrips to fade on, when you switch your main smart lighting off, a perfect 'recipe' to create a room with a dynamic mood. You could even use this effect to light your steps at night.

What are the life span of the strips?

The LEDs across the strips are expected to last up to 12,000 hours, offering a reliable solution to lighting which only consume 18 Watts of power. This means you can confidently install the strips, without having to worry about the energy cost.

Are they difficult to install?

Each Hue strip can be installed in seconds, thanks to the integrated adhesive tape they can be secured to any solid surface. Cutting guides have been included to help give you the design freedom to adapt each light strip. The Hue Bridge (not included) only takes moments to setup, the only task left is to download the app.

The ecosystem of the Hue range allows you to connect up to 50 Hue products to your Hue Bridge. All you need is one of the many starter kits, allowing you to combine any of the range to create your ideal home lighting.
