About the Philips Hue White Ambiance BR30 Bulbs
A shade for every mood
A shade for every mood
These Philips Hue White Ambiance bulbs make lighting your home easy and fun. The two included bulbs provide a wide range of white light that is adjustable for every situation. Select the cool white light of an overcast sky for dinner prep in the kitchen, then transition to a warmer glow when you sit down to eat.
Find just the right shade of white light for every task.
To set these up, you'll need a Philips Hue Bridge (sold separately) which will be the hub of your Hue smart lighting system. Then you'll be able to use the Hue mobile app to select shade and brightness, right from the palm of your hand. Use it from anywhere in your home, or even when you're not at home. Experiment to find your favorite shade of white, or choose from four preset “Recipes” — relax, read, concentrate, and energize — that change the color temperature based on your mood or task.
You can also set timers and create routines. For example, a “wake up” routine gradually increases the brightness in your bedroom to mimic the effect of sunrise. That sure beats the buzz of an alarm clock.
"Alexa, make my kitchen brighter"
You can control your lighting system hands-free if you've got a voice assistant. Hue works with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Google Home. That means you can turn your lights on or off, dim them, and recall your favorite presets 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 or a Tap. The motion sensor can add even more convenience.

Overview: This Philips Hue LED White Ambiance BR30 flood light can be added to an existing Hue Personal Wireless Lighting system. It is not a standalone item, and must be combined with other Hue products, such as one of the Starter Kits, which includes the wireless bridge. The free Philips Hue app lets you control the lights wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet. The system lets you 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 50 Philips Hue products can be added to the system, and controlled by a single bridge. Two BR30 White Ambiance bulbs are included in this package.
Light Bulb: The Hue LED White Ambiance BR30 flood light can be used in most standard light sockets (Edison screw base).
