Description

Transform the way you experience light with Philips Hue. The Philips Hue App makes it easy for you to get the most out of your Hue lights and accessories.

CONTROL YOUR LIGHTS WITH EASE
With the Philips Hue App, you can easily organize your individual lights into rooms. Switch rooms on/off or change the color or brightness of all your lights to match your mood or your activity. It's easy to control no matter how many lights you have.

PLAY WITH 16 MILLION COLORS
Transform your lighting into an extraordinary experience with our color palette. Effortlessly choose from 16 million colors or any shade of white light.

THE PERFECT LIGHT FOR ANY MOMENT OF YOUR DAY
Choose from four preset light recipes that support your daily routines: Energize, Concentrate, Read and Relax. Get ready for the day with cool daylight that helps to energize your body and mind. Stay focused with finely tuned bright white light. Or put your feet up and relax with warm white light for the perfect end to the day.

TRANSFORM ROOMS WITH ONE TAP
Enjoy a sunset in Honolulu or a night out in London's Soho district. Simply tap the scene to transform your room. The Philips Hue App features over 30 scenes handpicked by our lighting designers. Let their expertise help you instantly transform your room.

BRING YOUR PICTURES TO LIFE
With our state of the art picture-to-light algorithm you can easily transform your favorite picture into a personal Philips Hue scene. The algorithm extracts the relevant colors and intelligently applies them to your lights. Now you can use your Hue lights to relive your memories using your own pictures.

YOUR LIFE, YOUR LIGHTING ROUTINES
Automate your lights any way you want. Start at a specific time or when the sun goes down, turn on and off or activate a scene. You can even mimic being home by randomizing the routine.

HOME AND AWAY
Set it and forget it. With the App's location awareness feature, your lights will automatically turn on when you arrive at your front door or turn off when you leave home.

WAKE UP AND GO TO SLEEP
Configure your lights to help you fall asleep at night and wake up energized. Create your own personal sleep routines to automatically dim the lights in the evening or gently wake you up in the morning.

VOICE CONTROL: YOU TALK, HUE RESPONDS
Surprise your guests or simply never struggle again while walking into a dark home with your hands full. Whether you want to turn your lights on and off or change the brightness of a room, a lot can be done using your voice. Explore the possibilities of voice control with the voice assistant of your choice.
