Smart Homes are gaining in popularity in the last years. A lot of people have Amazon Alexa or Google smart speakers at home that want to use them to control lights around the house. There are multiple solutions to that on the market, one of which is the Philips Hue smart light system. It enables you to control your lights with your phone, wireless switches, or voice commands using Amazon or Google smart speakers.
Philips Hue is one of the most complete smart lighting systems on the market. It has a wide range of lights you can choose from. You can choose from a wide range of white and color bulbs with different cap types, different light strips, table lamps, floor lamps… The system is easily expandable so you don’t need to buy all of the bulbs at the same time. You can start with just a few and add additional in the future.
to start with Philips Hue we recommend buying a starter kit that has a hue bridge included. That way you get the most for your money. Once you set up the bridge and connect the bulbs to it you can add additional bulbs, light strips, or accessories with the touch of a button.
One of the most popular smart light accessories are motion sensors and switches. With sensors you can set up to turn the light on automatically when the movement is detected. This is great for hallways where the light will turn off after no one is there. with switches or smart buttons you can turn on and of the lamps. You can place them all around the room, away from ordinary wall switches. That increases your control of the lights.
Philips Hue offers also a wide range of outdoor lamps with which you can control lights in your garden, next to your entrance, etc. Their range of products is so wide that there is one for almost every possible use you can think of.
