Philips Hue Starter Kit Review: 5 Things You Need To Know

We thought you should know a few things about the Philips Hue Starter Kit. This kit opens up so many lighting possibilities. Gone are the days are restrictive lightbulbs that only come in white, bright white, day bright and the like. Remember when dimmable light bulbs came onto the market? This is much more sophisticated!

1. Play with over 16 million colours to get the best mood lighting for your room.

The lighting opportunities are literally endless. You can even set timers, lighting schedules and routines. For example:

Configure your lights to help you fall asleep at night and wake up energized. Create your own personal sleep routines to automatically dim the lights in the evening or gently wake you up in the morning.

Sounds a bit “Black Mirror”-esque doesn’t it? Let’s call it same same but different and keep moving forward. 🙂

2. Sync lights with music, movies, and video gaming for the ultimate sensory experience.

For the ultimate immersive experience, these lights will enhance any and all auditory and visual experiences!

3. Control via your iOS or Android devices!

The convenience of controlling your lights with the touch of a mobile screen–perhaps it encourages laziness? Nope! It just opens up a world of lighting opportunities. In one tap you could be enjoying the ambiance of a Honolulu sunset, or another popular scene.

4. Program lighting for specific activities.

Through the Philips Hue App, you can easily program lighting for specific effects, including light settings to help your children concentrate when doing homework, lighting to help you relax after a long day, and much more.  Philips Hue has light recipes.

Choose from four preset light scenes that support your daily routines. Get ready for the day with cool daylight that helps to energize your body and mind. Stay focused with finely tuned bright white light. Or put your feet up and relax with warm white light for the perfect end to the day.

5. Works with Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Google Assistant

We love our Home Assistants. We’ve written about choosing between Alexa, Homepod, and Google Assistant, but luckily, in regard to the Philip Hue Starter Kit–you don’t have to choose! It integrates with all three! You can turn on/off lights and dim them to your liking, with your voice!

Are you sold yet? We are! Take a look at our Philips Hue technology and take your first (or second, or next) Smart Living step.
