Philips Hue Lighting Up Your Smart Home

At the age of 12, for my first party, I painted all the light bulbs of the living area in blue and pink. The effect was great, my friends and I were pretending to be in a nightclub! One tiny detail. With the heat, the paint started to melt creating a bad smoke (probably toxic) and one by one the bulbs exploded! The boys couldn’t stop laughing, the girls left screaming and by the look in my mother’s eyes, I knew I would be grounded until my 50th!

Thanks to technology, creating a new lighting atmosphere in your home is possible today without putting your life in danger. You are one click away to create your new home decoration lighting.

How Does Hue Lighting Work?

Meet the hue app. An amazing way to control every Philips hue bulb in your home. All in the palm of your hand. It makes the light switch and coloured light bulb look like it came from the Dark Ages.

With hue, you’ll see light in a whole new way. It lets you play with tone, contrast and colour to create any lighting mood you could dream of. It’s clever, intuitive and connected. It‘s so much more than just a light bulb. It’s Personal Wireless Lighting.

Personal – hue lets you express who you are, through the way you light your home. With a vast palette of light and colour. So you can set your inner Picasso free.

Wireless – hue can be wherever you want and you can access it whenever you want. Any room. Any space. All wirelessly, through your smart device. Clever, hey?

Lighting – At its heart, hue is a lighting solution for the home. It’s functional and practical. But it can also be emotive and inspiring. It’ll change the way you think about home lighting. Forever.
