The brain of your Philips Hue system is the Bridge
. Just connect it to your WiFi network – this process is described in detail in the manual that comes with your Bridge – and you’re ready to go. It couldn’t be easier! Then download the Philips Hue app to your smart device and you can program your Hue bulbs to do exactly what you want.
The App guides you, step by step, through the process – we were amazed at how quick and easy it is.
The Philips Hue Bridge is compatible with Apple HomeKit technology, so you can even ask Siri to turn the lights on and off for you!
If you’d rather not use a smart device to run your Hue system you can buy a remote control that will do the same thing. You can easily mount a Philips Hue dimmer switch
on the wall with either screws or double-sided tape. The switch itself connects to the base with magnets so you can take it with you anywhere in the house. The remote switch runs on batteries – no other installation required!
