The free Philips Hue app lets you control the lights wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet. The system lets you set up light schedules, control the lights when you're away from home, and even change 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.

1 question already asked
1 answer I have two outdoor spot /flood lights that take a par 20 lamp with standard base. I want to convert to a color changing LED. These lamps are on a timer switch that operates as a wall switch. And come on and off every day. At random schedules but always within 1 hour of the set time. I want to have colored and varying hue as this is decorative not safety or security. Will these hue bulbs work in an enclosed fixture? Their length is better then the colored halogen I was using. I have an apple I phone, will that work to control the fixture, Iâ??d prefer to not replace the switch as it controls other safety and general illumination lighting out doors. Your product seems to have the best amenities.thank you in advance. [ Timotheo Jan 18, 2018 ]
