About the Philips Hue SmartLight Ecosystem
Philips Hue is based on ZigBee, a low power, safe, and reliable technology to control your lights. New features and improvements are continuously added to the system. Updates to both software and firmware are done wirelessly and seamlessly directly to your Hue product. Also, ZigBee is an open standard which makes it future proof.
You can connect up to 50 bulbs or lamps to the Philips Hue bridge. Simply begin with any of the available starter kits and start adding Philips Hue products. You can then control your lights at the swipe of a finger with the intuitive Philips Hue app for iOS and Android smart devices. Philips Hue econsystem is made of a growing number of wireless controlled LED lights that are controled via a Hub ("The Hue Bridge"). Because ZigBee is an open standard with wide support, there will always be new LED lights or applications to add to your current Hue network.
The Philips Hue Bridge 2.0
The new heart of the hue system. The bridge 2.0 is literally a bridge between your app and the bulbs. Linked to wi-fi via your router, it can connect up to 50 bulbs at a time. Not to mention hue’s other accessories, like hue tap. The bridge also connects your system to the wider world. With it you can control your lights remotely or link them up to the rest of the web, newsfeeds or even your own inbox. It’s really rather smart. Once your light bulbs are installed, just download the free app to your smartphone or tablet. The first time it opens it’ll search for your bridge and connect to the lights. When that’s done, you can use Apple Siri or the app to control your wireless bulbs.
The App to control the lights
The key to controlling hue lies in the palm of your hand. Use the app to change colors, brightness, functions and everything else in between. However you want it. Control your bulbs one at a time or all together. Find the right intensity and shade of white for the task at hand. Pick that perfect tone to match the moment. Or select a color from a photo and recreate it in your room.
You don’t have to be at home to control your lights. The Myhue portal is an online control panel that connects you to hue, from anywhere in the world. Make it look like someone’s home when you’re relaxing on the beach. Or just switch your lights off if you’ll be home later than you thought. The portal also saves your personalized scenes and Light Recipes. And it even keeps your bridge software up-to-date.
