Philips Hue - Benefits of a Smart Bulb

Smart lighting has become an increasingly popular way to light up your home. With various features and functions you can drastically change the atmosphere and look of your home with a simple change of lighting as well as making control easier and more efficient. The Philips Hue bulbs do just that. Let’s take a look at how smart lighting can change your home and way of living.

Set the mood

The advantages of using smart light bulbs - such as the Philips Hue LED Light Bulbs are that they provide full control of the lights all from your phone. Some of the bulbs they offer feature a change in colour - so you can change your lighting from a warm white to a vivid pink in a matter of seconds. Keep it neutral or go all out with various colour options - perfect for any atmosphere you want to create.

Easily dimmable

Before, a dimmer switch was required to dim and control the lights. However, with the Philips Hue LED Smart Bulbs you can easily dim via the app - or various other compatible smart accessories. Perfect for creating a cosy space without having to move an inch from your sofa!


Smart home products are becoming more compatible with each other, making it more user friendly and a more smart, connected home. The Philips Hue bulbs can be controlled via your smartphone or Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. Simply command your smart speaker to dim or turn on/off the lights. You can also see the status of the lights via apps, so there’s no more questioning whether you left the lights on before going out.


With smart bulbs, you can create a schedule that fits around your day to day life. Finish the same time every day at work? Pop the lights on just a few minutes before you get home - so you can be greeted with light. This feature can be ideal for anyone with a day to day routine, especially during Winter months when the nights get darker quicker.

Philips Hue LED Smart Bulbs transforms your everyday lighting to something more creative and smart. Change the light output colour to suit your every mood, be it a housewarming party, waking up in the morning, reading and anything in between. The lights do require the Hue Bridge which is the heart of the system. It acts as a smart hub and connects your devices to the lights - so bear this in mind if you decide to take that leap and invest in the innovative lighting solution.
