Smart Home System Series: Philips Hue and Lighting Control

Our homes are becoming more and more futuristic. Thanks to the so-called “Internet of Things,” where our everyday and mundane household objects get new functionality with a connection to the online world, we are entering a new world of “Smart” homes. This Smart Home concept allows us to monitor, control and discover our living spaces in completely different, or fun new ways, from practically anywhere. As the first part in a series on Smart Home tech, I’m going to fill you in on the Philips Hue and Lighting Control system.

Lighting isn’t very interesting, is it? I mean, other than different fixtures, the lights themselves are pretty unremarkable, right? Flick a switch, and on comes the light. Flick it again, and off it goes. I mean, totally yawn, huh? Well, that is unless you happen to have invested in the new Philips Hue personal lighting system, which allows for quite the personalization, versatility and convenience. Want to see how innovative lighting can be? Read on for my preview of the Philips Hue lighting system.

Philips Hue Go review

When Philips Hue launched I was fascinated and excited by it: a light bulb that connects to my wireless network that could be controlled by my iPhone … and change to any colour! Very cool. Hue has done well, and the line has diversified, growing to encompass other smartphone platforms and different bulb types. With Hue Go, Philips is launching a different type of product: a light that stands alone or connects with your network … but that you can take with you. I had the chance to use it for a week. Here’s what that was like.

The great thing about the “smart lighting” options from Philips is that they are extremely energy efficient. They can also be fully controlled using your wireless network. The control of the lights is so flexible it provides an amazing set of options for energy savings, for convenience and for enjoyment. So if you are upgrading your lighting, “Smart” lighting is a fantastic choice.

  The Internet of Things will ultimately change all of our lives for the better, and the Philips HUE lighting system is a great place to start. Imagine being able to control every aspect of your home with your Smartphone or tablet, and even have aspects of your home control itself based on a set of rules that you can customize. Philips Hue can take you there and do much more. It makes your lighting fun and convenient, while adding a lot of utility that can make your house more secure.

Philips Hue is a bright idea for your smart home

I have always thought smart home gadgets are a bit gimmicky, until I broke down and installed a few. I am now a convert as they are not only practical but so convenient they can actually improve your quality of life. For instance, I have a keyless lock in my home so I never worry about carrying around keys that I can lose. If I have friends or family that arrive when I am not there, I can let them in remotely until I show up. It’s great!   HUE is Philips line of smart home products that is all about lighting that can be controlled using your Smartphone or tablet. It brings the Internet of Things to reality and there are so many excellent ways to use HUE lighting products. Let’s explore just a few to give you an idea how they can improve life at home.

There’s a new gadget available and I’m pretty sure you’re going to want one. I know this because as much as I may have initially scoffed at the idea that it would be a product I would ever want or need, I’ve come to the realization that it is indeed something I have to have. It’s the new Philips Hue Go–a WiFi enabled portable mood light that can be used indoors or outdoors.
