Phillips Hue

Phillips Hue White and Colour Ambience Starter Kit

As we continue to become more connected, smart home devices grow in popularity and scope, like the Philips Hue, a robust, complete smart lighting system.

The bulbs can run directly through bluetooth and wireless networks, but for the true home experience, you need a Hue Bridge – a modem that runs and manages your bulbs, while linking them to your existing smart home networks – including your smart speakers, smart TVs, and even your music streaming service. The kit includes three colour smart bulbs and a Hue Bridge, which provides full control of the lights, access to the Hue app, and endless features.
