Make your lighting work for you
Whatever you're doing, make your lighting suit you. Connect the Hue Bridge to set a wake-up routine to ease your way into the day. Or set a bedtime routine to help you relax and unwind before sleep. You can even sync your lighting to match the film you're watching or change colour in time to your favourite songs.
Remote control access
Use the Home and Away feature to trigger the lights to turn on and off whenever you leave or arrive. You'll also be able to check in through the Hue app to make sure you switched everything off before you left home. And if you haven't - simply use the app to turn them off! You can also set a timer so the lights flash when it’s time to carry out a task.
Unlock the full benefits
Connect up to 50 bulbs and control them through the Bridge from anywhere in the home. Add accessories like motion sensors, to illuminate night-time trips to the bathroom. The Bridge also works with hands-free devices, like the Amazon Echo and Google Home. So you can control your lighting with your voice too.
“Alexa, turn off the bedroom lights”
Use your voice to control your lighting with an Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) speaker. The Echo Dot connects to the Alexa voice service so you can use it to carry out countless household tasks and to manage other smart home devices, like heating, power and security. It comes with Dolby processing to fill the room with immersive, 360º sound – while still being able to detect your voice commands from across the room.
