More Information

Colours to reflect every mood

The Philips Hue starter kit comes with 3 Hue light bulbs that feature every shade of white light and all the colours in the spectrum. Create the feel of a sunset in the living room or set the perfect shade of light and brightness for reading a book in bed. The possibilities are endless.

Convenient connectivity

Philips Hue smart light bulbs are a breeze to control. Using the Philips Hue app on your smart device, you can change tone, contrast, and colour with the touch of a button. You can also use the app to set an alarm that triggers the lights to pulsate, or set a timer to turn your lights on and off. Think: creating the impression you're home when you're not.

Easy installation

The starter kit comes with everything you need: 3 Hue A19 smart LED light bulbs, a bridge modem, and power adapter. Installation is super easy. Just screw the bulbs into standard E26 light sockets, plug in the bridge, connect it to your Wi-Fi, and download the Philips hue app. Just like that, you've got your own smart lighting system that can connect up to 50 lights.

Long-lasting use and great compatibility

The Hue A19 smart LED light bulbs sport a 25,000-hour lifetime, so they're sure to light up your life for a long time. They're also compatible with a wide range of Apple and Android devices.

Works with Nest and works with HomeKit

Ask Siri to turn on your lights or set a scene. Connect with your Nest Cam or Protect alarm (each sold separately) to automatically turn off the lights when you leave, or flash red if smoke or carbon monoxide are detected. Whether it's for added convenience or enhanced safety, integrating Hue with your smart home ecosystem is easy.

Not up to expectations

Intentions are good. System works but there are some flaws. 1- automatisation and timers do not always work as i programmed it. Skips some timers. 2- lights are not as bright as i wanted. I have to buy 2 sets so it doubles the price. Yes, system is nice bit still need tweeking from philips and REALLY not enough lumens.

Quick easy setup, works just like it says, would recommend and will be adding more to my system in the near future, very impressed.

Easy setup, good interfaces, easy to program

I bought this starter kit, because my home-grown Windows program, written in HTTP and JavaScript, which controls multitudinous functions in my home, actuates through X10 hardware, which does not manage LED bulbs well. The Philips Hue system is exactly what I need, because it is extremely friendly to developers. After one registers on Philips’s Web site, one has access to full documentation about the system. For me, programming is even easier, because the hub has a simple sample HTTP and JavaScript program right in it, and I can integrate code snippets from that sample into my home-grown system with just evolutionary changes. The downloadable interface for Android devices is excellent too, and cooperates fully with home-grown programming.

Great for dynamic mood lighting!

Like the title says, this product is good for dynamic mood lighting. It's also easy to set up. Just plug in the bridge, put in your lights, turn them on and install the app, and you're good to go. The starter kit comes with 3 bulbs (you can buy more to expand the system later), a bridge and an Ethernet cable to connect the bridge to your Wi-Fi router. Each bulb puts out up to 800 lumens, though this will vary based on colour and brightness settings. Please note that this is the gen 3 starter kit. If you want deep greens and blues, make sure that the box says "richer colors" in the top-right corner. Gens 1 and 2 don't have as rich of a colour gamut, so keep this in mind.
