the color of the lights to match your mood. Up to 50 Hue products can be added
to the system, and controlled by a single bridge.

be saved for later recall.

your music. (Third party apps may be required.)

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

At night, you can let the lights turn off gradually, so you don't have to
worry about leaving lights on.

you can turn lights on or off from your smartphone. You can also check the
status of your lights when you're not there.
