About the Philips Hue White Starter Kit

Get smart

This Philips Hue white light kit is an easy way to add smart lighting to your home. The two included LED bulbs replace most standard incandescent or CFLs, and — unlike CFLs — they turn on at full brightness instantly. And the free Philips Hue app for Apple® and Android™ lets you control the lights from wherever you are, whether that's across the room or across the country.

Philips Hue White A19 Starter Kit

Philips Hue bulbs make it easy to find the right lighting for every mood.

Setup is simple

Connect the bridge to your wireless router using the supplied Ethernet cable, and plug it into a power outlet. Then replace your existing bulbs with Hue bulbs, and you're all set for app-controlled lighting.

Use your voice

You can also control your lighting system hands-free if you've got a voice assistant. This Hue kit works with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Google Home. That means you can dim your lights or turn them on and off just by asking.

Expand your Hue system

Controlling your lights with an app or your voice is fun, but you might find that some members of the household prefer a good old-fashioned wall switch. If so, you can pick up a dimmer wall switch or a Tap remote. The motion sensor can add even more convenience.

This starter pack comes with two dimmable white bulbs, but the included bridge can actually control up to 50 Hue bulbs, so you can mix and match with other Philips Hue smart lighting products. Pick up a color-capable bulb or lamp, and your mood lighting options will expand by 16 million colors.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Philips Hue White E26 Starter Kit (#476929) consists of two Wi-Fi controllable LED bulbs and a wireless bridge. You can control the bulb (turn on/off, dim/brighten) via Bluetooth in a single room, or pair it to the Hue Bridge as part of a whole home smart lighting system. The Hue Personal Wireless Lighting system allows you to set up light schedules, and control the lights when you're away from home. Additional Hue products can be added to the system, up to a maximum of 50 bulbs and 12 Hue accessories that can be controlled by a single bridge.

Hue Compatible Products: This Starter Kit not only works within the Philips Hue universe, but is compatible with many third party products, including many of the top voice assistants. Hue products work with Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Cortana by Microsoft. Using simple voice commands, you can turn the lights on and off, dim or brighten the lights, and set a light scene. In addition, other "Friends of Hue" include IFTTT (If This, Then That), Logitech, Nest, Xfinity, and SmartThings.

Light Bulbs: The two white LED bulbs included in this Starter Kit can be used in standard light sockets (Edison E26 screw base). They have an A19 form factor, and are 2.4" at widest point and 4.3" tall. The bulbs emit a soft white light with a constant color temperature of 2700 Kelvin. The bulbs are rated at 9.5 watts and 800 lumens, and have an estimated nominal lifetime of 25,000 hours and 50,000 switch cycles. The bulbs have a beam angle of 180° (±20°), and instant 100% light output at startup. Inside the bulb is a wireless interface that allows you to dim or brighten the light output. The internal software is automatically upgradable when connected to the Philips Hue bridge.

Bridge: The Hue Bridge 2.1 is the heart of the Philips Hue system, and 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 (2400-2483.5 MHz), and Zigbee Light link protocol, and comes with a AC adapter with a 5V 1A DC output. Dimensions: 3.58" x 3.58" x 1.".

Hue Personal Wireless Lighting: The Hue Personal Wireless Lighting System lets you individually control the lighting products in the system using your smartphone or tablet. Three types of Philips Hue lights are available: White and Color Ambiance, White Ambiance, and White (this starter kit). Through the Hue app, and with the right Hue products, you can do the following:

  • Paint With Light: You can choose from 16-million colors to light, or change the look of, your room. Your favorite light settings can be saved for later recall. (Requires Color Ambiance bulbs)
  • Sync Lights With Movies, Games, or Music: The lights can be synchronized to change with the scenes in a movie or video game, or pulse to the beat of your music. (Third party apps may be required.)
  • Create An Ambience: The app lets you use different shades of white or color light to create an ambience. The bulbs can produce shades of light from energizing cool daylight to relaxing warm white light, an virtually any color you desire.
  • Light Mood Presets: Preset light moods let you instantly change the lights in the room to fit the moment. Optimal settings are available for reading, relaxing, concentrating, and energizing.
  • Wake Up: Gradually increasing light intensity helps to gently wake you up with light, similar to the natural light of the morning sun.
  • Light Schedules: The lights can be programmed to come on and go off at a preset time, including lighting rooms at different times. At night, you can let the lights turn off gradually, so you don't have to worry about leaving lights on.
  • Remote Lighting Control: When you're away from home, you can turn lights on or off from your smartphone. You can also check the status of your lights when you're not there.
  • Geofencing: When the bridge detects that your smartphone is within a certain distance, it will automatically turn lights on or off. For example, as you approach your house, your lights will automatically turn on so you won't have to enter a dark room. (Third party apps may be required.)

App Compatibility: The Philips Hue app is available for Apple devices running iOS 12.0 or watchOS 3.0 or later. The app is also available for Android devices -- version varies with device. The Philips Hue Bluetooth app is for devices running iOS 12.0 or later, and Android devices 7.0 and up.
