An immersive lighting package
This kit includes everything you need to add dramatic lighting to your home theater or gaming area. The Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip gives you color-changing ambient light, and when combined with the included Bridge and HDMI sync box, it can mimic and extend what's on your screen.
Your home theater can take on the warm vibrance of a beach sunset. The blue glow of a haunted house can extend its creepy tendrils into your living room. The possibilities are almost endless.
Create an even more immersive lighting experience by adding additional Hue colored lights to your entertainment area (sold separately).
Dual app control
You can select color, brightness, and scenes for your light strip with the Philips Hue app. And when you plug your sources into the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box, your lighting will react to your content. To do that, you'll create a new "entertainment area" in the Hue app and control light automation parameters with the Hue Sync app.
The light strip can also be set to react to music. Sync it with other Hue color-changing lights in a group and you can throw an impromptu dance party.
Made for TV
The light strip mounts to the back of your TV with the included brackets. Stick the adhesive-backed clips onto your TV — it helps to lay it flat on the floor for installation — then fit the light strip into the channels following the included instructions. The Gradient will cover three out of four sides behind your screen — top, left, and right.

More details on the Philips Hue TV Light Package
Bundle Overview: The Philips Hue TV Light Package contains a Play Gradient Lightstrip, a Play HDMI Sync Box, and the Hue Wireless Bridge. Together they enhance your TV and movie watching experience by surrounding your TV screen with color that is synchronized with the action on the screen. The flexible lightstrip mounts to the rear of your TV and creates a unique lighting effect. You will need to download the free Hue Sync app for mobile devices to control the components in this package.
Gradient Lightstrip (55"): The Play Gradient Lightstrip is designed for 55" to 60" wall-mounted or standing TVs. The strip is "quarter round" shaped (0.6" x 0.6") and 84" in length with a 6" power pigtail. It mounts across the top and down each side of the TV and projects colored light onto the wall behind. Unlike the Hue Lightstrip Plus, which can illuminate only one color at a time, the Gradient Lightstrip can produce multiple colors simultaneously, and blend colors together so they flow naturally into one another. The strip's pigtail plugs into the Wi-Fi controller, and is powered by the included 20-watt power supply. The controller wirelessly connects to the Hue Bridge and HDMI Sync Box which synchronizes the colors to the content on the screen.
Lightstrip Installation: The Gradient Lightstrip comes with five 3M adhesive-backed mounting clips to attach the strip to the back of your TV. Two of the clips are designed for the upper corners, while the straight clips are for the top center and lower left and right corners (ends). You should avoid covering up the speakers or ventilation slots on the back of the TV. The end with the controller/power connection should be installed on the lower right corner in order for the light colors to match the colors on the screen.
HDMI Sync Box: The HDMI Sync Box enhances your TV experience by synchronizing your color-capable Philips Hue lights with the content on the screen. You can connect up to four HDMI devices to the box, including set-top boxes, Blu-ray players, game consoles, and streaming sticks, then connect the box to your TV. Your Gradient Lightstrip and other Philips Hue lights will dance, flash, dim, brighten, and change color along with the action on the screen. You can control the HDMI Sync Box on your smartphone or tablet using the Philips Hue Sync app, or use your voice or TV remote. The Sync Box connects wirelessly to the Philips Hue bridge. Dimensions: Width 7.074", Height 0.923", Depth 3.885"; Weight 1 pound.
HDMI Sync: The Play HDMI Sync Box is equipped with four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output. The HDMI ports support HDMI version 2.0b with HDCP 2.2, and video resolutions up to 4K 60Hz, with HDR10+, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. The box supports HDMI devices, such as Apple TV and Chromecast, which support subscription services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO, and Spotify. It is compatible with HDMI-based gaming consoles, including PlayStation and Xbox. The Sync Box automatically detects which input is actively playing and switches to it. It does not work with Smart TV apps which run directly on the TV.
Compatible Devices: The following TVs have been tested for compatibility to the Play HDMI Sync Box and Dolby Vision: LG (2017 and later), Sony, Vizio (2018 and later), TCL (2018 and later), Panasonic, and Philips. HDMI sources that support Dolby Vision include: Apple TV 4K, FireTV 4K, Chromecast Ultra, Nvidia Shield (2019 models), and Xbox One S/X (only apps).
Light Sync: The Sync Box reads the HDMI signals from your video sources and sends them to your Gradient Lightstrip and other Hue Color Ambiance lights (up to 10). The Sync Box is particularly effective with Hue Play lights, including Play Gradient Lightstrips and Light Bars, that mount behind your TV to paint your walls with colored light. As you watch TV shows and movies, the on-screen action directs the lights to enhance the mood. The lights amplify every in-game car chase or explosions when you're on your game console. If you're listening to music, the Sync Box heightens the music's intensity or creates a romantic atmosphere with light.
Bridge: The Philips Hue Bridge is the central part of the Philips Personal Wireless Lighting system. When used with Philips Hue products and the Philips Hue app, you can control the lights in your home wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet. You can set up light schedules, control the lights when you're away from home, and even change the color of the lights to match your mood. Up to a maximum of 50 Philips Hue products that can be controlled by a single bridge. The Hue bridge can be wall-mounted or placed on a desktop. It connects to your router via the included Ethernet cable, and communicates wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet and the Hue lighting products. It operates on the 2.4GHz band, and Zigbee Light link protocol, and comes with a AC adapter with a 5V 2A DC output. Dimensions: Width 3.547", Height 3.547", Depth 1.044"; Weight 9.88 ounces.
Philips Hue Sync Mobile App: The special Hue Sync mobile app (different from the regular Philips Hue app) helps you set up, configure, and use the Play Gradient Lightstrip and the Play HDMI Sync Box. In the app, you can sync up to 10 color-capable Hue lights, control the brightness and speed of the light effects, and switch between video, game, and audio modes. The Hue Sync desktop app does not work with the Play HDMI Sync Box--you must use the Hue Sync mobile app. The Hue Sync app is available for free download for Apple iPhone/iPad/iPod touch with iOS 12.0 or later, and Android devices running version 7.0 and up.
Voice Control: The Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip and HDMI Sync Box can be controlled by voice commands through your favorite Virtual Assistant. The lightstrip is compatible with Siri (Apple HomeKit), Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant.
Super cool! Really makes the movies and shows come alive!
