Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We got this lamp for our den, which is where we eat, play video games, watch TV, and generally do everything fun. Because this is such a multipurpose room, we needed a lamp that could be anywhere and provide any kind of light. The Hue Go completely fit that bill. We already have Hue lights in our house, so setting up the lamp with our system was easy. Even if you don't have a Hue system, the lighting options this lamp provides are worth its price.

Pros: portable, app enabled

Cons: Only lasts about two hours on the brightest setting when disconnected from charger

Great light

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

You will need to purchase the bridge as well, on its own it's just a light - a light with variations of light settings. With the bridge a wonderful part of a smart house.

Pros: Fun and creative

Cons: Not special on its own.

Features

Overview: The Philips Hue Go is a small portable light that you can take anywhere to light an area or set a mood. You can choose from 7 preset colors using the on-board controls, or connect it to the Hue Bridge for wireless control with smart devices. The Hue Go can be powered by the supplied AC adapter, or on built-in battery power.

Note: The Hue Bridge is available as part of the Philips Hue Starter Kit (item # 945A19KIT2).

Hue Go: The Hue Go can be used as a standalone light with local (on product) control, or within the Hue Personal Wireless Lighting System. On its own, the Hue Go has a rear control button that lets you turn it on and off, and select one of seven preset colors: warm white light, natural white light, Cozy Candle, Sunday Coffee, Meditation, Enchanted Forest, and Night Adventure. The light output is 100% when the Hue Go is connected to AC power, but dims to 40% when on battery power to conserve battery power. The built-in rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery provides up to 3 hours of light on a 1.5-hour charge. The battery is non-replaceable. The Hue Go can be placed facing straight upward, or at an angle, using the integrated "foot."

Hue Personal Wireless Lighting: The Hue Personal Wireless Lighting System lets you individually control all of the Hue lighting products in the system using your smartphone or tablet. Through the Hue app, you can control the Hue Go to 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 may be required.)

Features

Overview: The Philips Hue White Ambiance Bulb Starter Kit (#471986) consists of four Wi-Fi controllable LED white ambiance bulbs, and the Hue wireless bridge. With these items, and the free Philips Hue app, you can control the lights wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet. The Philips Personal Wireless Lighting allows you to set up light schedules, and control the lights when you're away from home. The color temperature of these White Ambiance bulbs can be varied to set the mood you want. With optional color ambience bulbs and other accessories, you can even change the color to paint your room with light. 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.

Apple HomeKit Compatible: This Starter Kit is compatible with Apple HomeKit technology, which allows you to control your lights using your Apple iOS device, including voice control through Siri. The kit includes the new square-shaped Hue bridge (version 2.1), which supports the hardware authentication required for Apple HomeKit. (The round-shaped bridge from the original Hue Starter kit (#426353) is not compatible with HomeKit technology.)

Light Bulbs: The four E26 LED white ambiance bulbs included in this Starter Kit can be used in most standard light sockets (Edison screw base). The bulbs are rated at 10 watts and 806 lumens (at 4000 Kelvin), and have an estimated nominal lifetime of 25,000 hours. Inside the bulb is a wireless interface that allows you to dim or brighten the light output from warm white (2200K) to cool daylight (6500K). The internal software is automatically upgradable when connected to the Philips Hue bridge. The bulbs have a beam angle of 160° (±20°), and an instant 100% startup time.

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 2A DC output. Dimensions: Width 3.58", Height 3.564", Depth 1.055".

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, White Ambiance (this starter kit), and White and Color Ambiance. 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.
  • 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 may be required.)
