About Philips Hue

Philips Hue is the world’s leading connected lighting system for the home. It includes bulbs, strips, spots, lamps, fixtures and controls, powered by the Philips Hue bridge. The system transforms how light is used in and around the home to take your entertainment experience to the next level, support your daily routines and moments, and help provide peace of mind while home and away.

Since the launch of Philips Hue, Philips Lighting has encouraged other companies to develop devices, apps and systems that work seamlessly with the system. From 700 third-party apps and wearable technology, to Internet services and smart home products, Philips Hue goes beyond illumination to provide more than just light – to deliver new experiences, where the only limit is your imagination.
