Create the perfect ambience

Your movie starts and the lights dim. The action begins with a high speed chase. Your Philips Hue bulbs strobe red and blue as the cops close in. When the scene ends with an explosive crash the room is flooded with a fiery orange glow. With Philips Hue not only can you add accents, use colours and tones to set a mood or match your décor, you can sync your lights to your music and even movies.

With 16 million colours, variable brightness, and up to 800 lumen output, you can create everything from subtle to striking effects by painting your room with light.

Control from your smartphone

Use the Philips Hue app for your iOS or Android device to tune, dim, and precisely control the colour of your lights from anywhere. You can set timers, notifications, alarms, and set up geofencing so your lights turn on when you come home, or off when you leave, automatically. That's not just smart, it's downright polite -- not to mention efficient.

Easy to install, long bulb life

The Philips Hue A19 colour light bulb features a standard medium base and screws easily into a regular socket, so you can use in any of your current light fixtures or lamps. It offers up to 25, 000 hours of lamp life, and uses 10W of power to illuminate and enable wireless connectivity within a 30m range.

Works with your Hue bridge

Using Wi-Fi and ZigBee wireless connectivity, Hue A19 colour light bulbs are controlled by your smartphone via the Hue bridge (sold separately, available in Hue smart LED starter kits). This connectivity also allows for integration into your smart home ecosystem. Hue A19 colour bulbs are HomeKit enabled and work with Nest, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant.

Enhanced home security and convenience

You can turn your lights on even when you're not home, so it appears as if you are. You can have your bulbs flash red when your Nest Protect smoke/CO alarm (sold separately) detects danger. You can program them to change colour when motion is detected, when the weather changes, or when a friend tags you via social media.

  • Light Bulb

  • Good colour

    from Halifax on June 18, 2019

    Lights are great. I read a lot of people not liking them but most people don’t have a hue Bridge. I however read the description and already have one. Integration was seamless. The update took a while but worth it. There is a newer colour bulb but for most people with a bridge the colours and use is excellent.

    Perfect but not cheap.

  • Works as advertised

    from Thornhill, ON on January 17, 2018

    The basic functions for this work as advertised. Been working constantly for about 3 weeks now using 3 bulbs. It works by the bulbs connecting to a central bridge device that connects a hard cable to your router. It does not connect remotely via wifi, which is a small drag, and the reason I removed a star. It would have been perfect if the bridge itself connected wireless. Outside of that, the free hue app works fine once you get used to the UI and works well with Google Assistant. There are other apps available in the apps marketplace for a small cost if you'd like to do more advanced configurations for things such as party lighting (reacts to sound, etc). Not needed if your not into this kind of thing. Not sure yet on what life of the bulbs will be over time, so that will fully determine if this was worth it. At this point, I plan to purchase more for more coverage around the house. So far I'm enjoying these a lot.
