Bored with your old-fashioned bulbs? Smarten up your lighting with this Philips Hue White Starter Kit. The two included bulbs are a standard size that fit most common light fixtures. They turn on instantly, and brightness is adjustable up to 1100 lumens (roughly equivalent to a 75-watt incandescent bulb). Plus you can control them in almost any way you want.

Two lamps with white bulbs

This starter kit makes it easy to add smart lighting to your home.

Easy app control 

You can control the bulbs right out of the box with the Philips Bluetooth app, but to get the most out of them, you'll want to set up the included Philips Hue Bridge.

With the Bridge acting as the hub of your system, you'll be able to use the Hue mobile app to adjust brightness from wherever you are, right from the palm of your hand. You can also set timers and create schedules. 

Or use your voice

You can 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 turn your lights on or off, dim them, and recall your favorite presets just by asking. As an iPhone user, I love that I can control my Hue system from my lockscreen.

Even more control options

Operating 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 Hue dimmer or wall switch module. Or, if you've got a lot of smart gadgets you want to easily operate from one place, try replacing a wall outlet with a Brilliant Smart Home Control

Expand your Hue system — indoors and out

This starter pack comes with two white bulbs, but the included bridge can actually control up to 50 Hue bulbs, so you can mix and match. Pick up a color-capable bulb or lamp, and your mood lighting options will expand by 16 million colors. I just added a filament bulb to my Hue system because the retro look was perfect for my library. The Play Light Bar is great if you want to up your entertainment game in the living room. Or expand out into your deck or yard with a flexible Lightstrip.

More details on the Philips Hue White Starter Kit (1100 lumens)

Product Research


Overview: The Philips Hue White E26 Starter Kit (#476945) consists of two wirelessly 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 Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit (Hue Bridge required), and Cortana by Microsoft (Hue Bridge required). 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. Each bulb weighs 2.65 ounces. The bulbs emit a soft white light with a constant color temperature of 2700 Kelvin. The bulbs are rated at 10.5 watts and 1100 lumens, which is equivalent to a 75-watt incandescent bulb. The bulbs 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: 3.5" x 3.5" x 1.0"; Weight 3.4 ounces.

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 13.0, and for Android devices running version 8.0 and up. The Philips Hue Bluetooth app is for devices running iOS 12.0 or later, and Android devices 7.0 and up.
