Philips Hue Owners: Getting the Most out of Your HUE lights

If you own Philips Hue bulbs, this is a must watch video. I’ve had them since they first came out and have learned a lot about using them, so I wanted to make a video demoing all the best apps, tips, and tricks that I’ve found for controlling them.

Sue Wade says:

Question for you: Can you adjust the color to a specific Kelvin?

Mike Lee says:

I have the most advanced and efficient lighting system. Simple to use and very cost effective. I had a switch attached to my wall. As I enter the room I flick the switch upward and the entire room is illuminated. When I leave the room I flick the switch downward and complete darkness. It cost me about $3.00. No apps to mess with. Did not have to spend $2000.00 on electronics.And I can actually see everything in the room clearly. No have lit room or lights flashing in my eyes.I will do a video on it shortly.

Moghster says:

hue widget looks horrendous

Mike Stein says:

Got a question, hope you see this.
Anything that has meaning to in my home is connected to 5ghz or wireless AC including my phones and Alexa.
From what I’ve gathered, all these wifi bulbs only connect to 2.4ghz.
Will I be able to use the phone and Alexa to control them under those circumstances?

Tom T says:

Does your phone have to be on the same wifi network to control the lights?

SuperDelusionistTM says:

Варвара Кондратюк says:

*Love the lights>>>**t.co/QY15Wc0MLz**   bought the starter kit well worth the investment. My kids love how we can change the lights to any color.*

Steve Laminack says:

Light DJ charges you monthly or yearly, F’ing BS for a phone app to change colors.

Roman Semenov says:

For music sync there is an app (forgot the name) that looks ahead of the audio track to counter the bulb delay

Jonny Harris says:

Does that Many bulbs slow down your internet?

Geert De Loenzien says:

do you know a app who can change color and when color is changed there plays another song? scene like color1:song1>color2:song2>color3>song3,…

Desmond Hough says:

Hi there, Take a look at iConnectHue, It’s an app I have been using for a long time and find it very easy to set up and use and it works fast . I run 32 lights of it and it works perfect for me , I like the timer at night for when I go to bed I set the bedroom lights to go out in what ever time I wish. You can change the colour and brightness of each bulb individually or as a group very quickly, also you can control away from home . The app has a lot of good features and is definitely worth a look. Cheers

Jay G. says:
