Philips Hue has established itself as the master of connected lights in the home automation market.

To try them out, the pack that includes two Hue Plays and a connection bridge is ideal, and above all much cheaper at the moment.
The strengths of Philips Hue Play
- Light bars with 16 million colorful shades
- The Zigbee protocol, less energy intensive than Wi-Fi
- Several installations possible
Initially offered at 189 euros, the Philips Hue pack including two Hue Play and a connection bridge is now sold at 119 euros on Rue du commerce.
Installation that couldn’t be simpler
To operate its connected lights, Philips Hue has focused on simplicity. Before taking advantage of the bulbs and other light accessories, you simply need to plug the connection bridge, supplied in this pack, into a mains socket. This little “Hue Bridge” is essential to benefit from a long range, because Philips Hue lights use the Zigbee protocol, not Wi-Fi. This solution is also less energy-intensive. The bridge must also be connected to your Internet box, and the lights will be ready to be illuminated.
This will be the case of Hue Play, which are two in number in this pack presented here. These connected light bars, which can be installed on a wall, on a piece of furniture or even behind a television for a backlighting effect using clips and adhesive tapes, can synchronize with your films, and even with your compatible video games. Immersion will therefore be ensured thanks to this luminous halo that will emanate from these smart bars.
Millions of color choices
The Hue Play can also diffuse a colored light that you have chosen from more than 16 million shades, or a white light to be selected from 50,000 cold or warm shades. What concoct a warm atmosphere and customize the lighting of your home for every occasion. To do this, you will have to go through the Philips Hue application, which will allow you to adjust the intensity and color of the Hue Play.
Also note that this application will offer you the possibility of programming atmospheres adapted according to the occasions, as well as the extinction of the lights at the time you wish. And if you want to control these lights much faster, you can always use voice assistants (Google Assistant, Alexa, Siri) to make various voice requests.
