About the Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip
Dynamic light for your TV
Dynamic light for your TV
Mounted on the back of your TV, the Gradient turns your walls into an extension of your screen.
The Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip gives you color-changing ambient light that can mimic and extend what's on your TV screen.
The possibilities and the Gradient's capability to react are endless. The glare of explosions reaches beyond the confines of your TV. Your home theater takes on the same ambience as the dimly lit cafe on the screen.
Gamers can immerse themselves in the strange glow of virtual worlds, the brightness of the stadium, the hot western sun — wherever the game takes you.
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 a legitimate dance party.
Dual app control
This light strip requires a Philips Hue Bridge and can be controlled with the Philips Hue app. But if you want the Gradient to react to your content, you'll also need the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box and the Philips Hue Sync app. You'll create a new "entertainment area" in the Hue app and control light automation parameters with the Sync app.
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 Play Gradient Lightstrip
Overview: The Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip enhances 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 with the included adhesive-backed clips and creates a unique lighting effect behind your TV. The Play Gradient Lightstrip requires a wireless connection to the Hue Bridge (sold separately, or included in a Hue Starter Kit), and the Play HDMI Sync Box. You'll also need to download the free Hue Sync app for desktop or mobile devices. This Play Gradient Lightstrip is designed for 55" TVs and larger. Lightstrips are also available for 75" and 65" TVs.
Gradient Lightstrip: The Gradient Lightstrip 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.
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.
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 can be controlled by voice commands through your favorite Virtual Assistant. The lightstrip is compatible with Siri (Apple HomeKit), Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant.
