Customizable smart bulbs
Included in this Philips Hue starter pack, the two White & Color (E27) smart bulbs light up in no less than 16 million colorful shades to create a personalized atmosphere at any time in a room. You can very easily modulate the intensity and color of the bulbs directly from the Philips Hue application, available on iOS and Android. On the latter, it will also be possible to program the switching on or off of the connected lights, or even simulate a presence by switching them on even when you are not at home. And the bulbs can just as well be controlled by voice thanks to the assistants Alexa, Google Assistant or even Siri.
A light bar and portable lamp to complement
This discovery pack also includes a Hue Play light bar, which offers tenfold immersion. Concretely, the Hue Play has the advantage of synchronizing with your movies, and even with your compatible video games. Mounted on a wall or laid flat near a TV, this smart light can transform the atmosphere of your room. You can even concoct a little homemade backlight by placing the Hue Play behind your television. In addition to this light bar, the kit also includes a wireless switch/dimmer, in the form of a remote control, to be installed on its wall bracket: it will also allow you to turn on, off and modulate the brightness of your bulbs.
But thanks to Boulanger’s offer, you can also acquire a Hue Go portable LED lamp, equipped with an integrated rechargeable battery, which makes it completely portable and can be used both indoors and outdoors. It therefore does not need to be plugged into a power outlet to operate. Thanks to your smartphone (with Bluetooth) or the control button located on the lamp, you can select one of the dynamic lighting effects available and modulate the intensity of the diffused light.
The economical Zigbee protocol
Finally, to operate your Philips Hue bulbs, the Hue connection bridge will be essential, especially to benefit from a long range, because the brand’s bulbs use the Zigbee protocol, not Wi-Fi. This solution is to elsewhere less energy-intensive. The bridge must be connected to your Internet box: the bulbs will immediately be ready to light up after that.
