About the Philips Hue White Ambiance Downlight (700 lumens)

Emily S.

Spice up your downlights

Okay, those recessed can lights in your ceiling might not be something you think too much about. But what if you could easily change their color temperature and brightness? This White Ambiance Downlight from Hue makes doing just that easy and fun. 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.

Philips Hue A19/E26 white ambiance bulb app

No Bridge is required to use this bulb, but you can expand your options when you add one.

No Bridge required

One of the only complaints I've heard about Philips Hue bulbs is that you have to have a separate Bridge to control them. Well — not anymore. This new bulb connects to your mobile device using Bluetooth. You can then use the Hue mobile app to control up to ten lights in one room of your home.

Use your voice

You can also control this bulb hands-free if you've got an Amazon Alexa or Google Home device. That means you can turn your light on or off, dim it, and recall your favorite presets just by asking.

Add wall control

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 to add a wall-controlled option to your Bluetooth-based system.

Expand your system with a Bridge to do more

If you want to do even more, you can add a Philips Hue Bridge (sold separately). Then, you can control up to 50 Hue devices — even when you're not at home. The Bridge also adds compatibility with other Hue accessories — like the Tap — and voice control via Apple HomeKit and Microsoft Cortana.

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. And if you want to move from shades of white to your choice of 16 million colors, check out Hue's collection of White and Color Ambiance products.

More details on the Philips Hue White Ambiance Downlight (700 lumens)

The Philips Hue White Ambiance Downlight (700 lumens) replaces these items:

Product Research


Overview: The Philips Hue Downlight is a 5"/6" retrofit recessed light bulb that replaces your incandescent recessed bulb with a wirelessly controllable LED light. The Downlight pairs with a Hue Wi-Fi Bridge (not included) to let you change the brightness and color temperature using the Philips Hue app on your smartphone or tablet. The light is also controllable via Bluetooth on your smartphone or tablet, as well as your favorite smart voice assistant.

Note: The Downlight is not suitable for use with external dimmers, photo controls, occupancy sensors, or timing devices. It is especially designed for living room or bedroom use, but is also suitable for wet locations.

Downlight Installation: The 5"/6" Downlight is designed to fit inside an existing 5"/6" recessed lighting "can" with a standard E26 Edison screw socket. The supplied adapter screws into the existing socket and plugs into the back of the bulb. The Downlight inserts into the recessed lighting fixture until the flange is flush with the ceiling. Three spring-loaded clips hold the light firmly in place inside the recessed fixture.

Bulb Specifications: The Philips Hue Downlight white ambiance light is equivalent to a 62-watt traditional incandescent bulb, yet it is rated at only 9 watts. It has a 4.61" inner diameter and a 7.3" outer flange diameter, and requires a recessed distance of 3.7". The socket adapter fits into a standard light socket (E26 Edison screw base). The bulb has a light output of 700 lumens with a color temperature that is variable from 2200K (warm white) to 6500K (cool daylight). It has an estimated lifetime of 35,000 hours, and is covered by a 3-year warranty.

Hue Compatible Products: The Philips Hue Downlight 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.

Philips Hue App: The Philips Hue app, when used with the Hue Bridge, gives you full home control of your Philips Hue lights. Within the full Hue Lighting System, you can set timers and schedules, control lights away from home, set wake-up and go-to-sleep routines, and sync the lights to your music, movies, and video games. 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. Bluetooth control has been incorporated into the Philips Hue app, allowing control of up to 10 Bluetooth-compatible Hue products from within the room. The app is available for Apple devices running iOS 14.0 or later, or for Android devices running Android 10 and up.

Bluetooth Control: The Downlight is Bluetooth-compatible, allowing you to control the light from the room without the Hue Bridge. Up to 10 Bluetooth-enabled lights can be controlled from your smartphone or tablet from up to 30 feet away. You can turn the lights on or off, dim or brighten the bulb, and apply Light "recipes" for everyday tasks. You can even control them with your voice through the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. Bluetooth control requires the Philips Hue app.

Note: The separate Philips Hue Bluetooth app is no longer available.

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 within an existing wireless network. Through the Hue app, and other Hue-compatible 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.
  • Sync Lights With Movies or Music: The lights can be synchronized to change with the scenes in a movie, 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 light to create an ambience. The bulbs can produce shades of light from energizing cool daylight to relaxing warm white light.
  • 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 required.)
