Philips Hue 2.0 BR30 White and Color Ambiance Light Bulb
Single add-on smart bulb for your Hue lighting system
Our take on the Philips Hue 2.0 BR30 White and Color Ambiance Light Bulb by Crutchfield's Kramer Crane
"Hey Siri, turn on the porch lights!"
Use Siri to turn on your Philips Hue smart lights anytime, anywhere.
You use your phone's voice controls for lots of things these days, so why not have some fun with your smart lighting? The new Philips Hue 2.0 BR30 bulbs are Apple® HomeKit compatible, which means that you can now use Siri to control your Hue lighting system. Use voice commands from your compatible iOS® device to turn lights on and off, or change the colors that your new bulbs display. Your kids will love it.
Easy add-on to your existing Hue system
The BR30 white and color ambiance bulb is an add-on to the Philips Hue 2.0 A19 starter kit. Philips Hue bulbs communicate wirelessly with the system's hub. You'll control your new smart bulbs through the free Philips Hue app (Apple®, Android™).
Paint your room with color
Turning lights on and off remotely is just the beginning. Because the Hue bulbs can display millions of different colors, you can paint your walls with a vivid light show. Sync your lights to music, games, or movies for an immersive, multi-dimensional experience. With a wide range of white light available, use a warmer temperature in the evening for a softer feel in the room.
Have some fun with your smart lighting
With a variety of compatible 3rd-party apps, you can get creative with your Hue lighting system. Enjoy a fireworks display without the loud noise. Have your lights turn blue if it's raining outside, or flash red when your favorite sports team scores. With an endless choice of color and display options, you'll have a blast using it with your family. Here are some other Hue products that will integrate into your smart lighting system.
