Product Review

At Smartn we believe that Phillips Hue is the most versatile and easy to use smart lighting system available.

Philips are ahead of most of their competition when it comes to features and functions, as well as having the most impressive mobile application software, and high-quality hardware.

Although having slightly higher priced hardware, the Hue system out performs all its competitors and you certainly get what you pay for in terms of quality. Hue are always in development releasing new software and hardware to their system allowing a fully future proofed setup.

We would strongly recommend utilizing their low-cost dimmer switch which acts as a room remote control for your lighting (note that one is required for each area/room set up).

Although not having the availability of some bulb types or IP rated lighting it is the most complete system you can buy off the shelf, and if you are going to kit out your whole home we would highly recommend utilizing Hue into your Smart Home system

Installation Review

Phillips Hue installation requires compatible light fittings and has a free mobile application available for both IOS and Android phones and tablets

Please be advised hue bulbs currently come in B22, E27 and GU10 along with their light strips and custom light fittings. If you are retro fitting your home with hue bulbs, consider the available products and what you require in your home first.

Physical Installation – Fitting the bulbs is quite literally as simple as changing a light bulb, we would however recommend that if you are installing a bulb that was not bought with a hub to make a note of the serial number printed on the bulb housing as you will need it to pair the bulb with the hub.

Technical installation – Once you have downloaded the Hue mobile application the instructions are a straight forward process to follow. Initially to connect your phone to your hub, your hub to the internet, and then your bulbs to the hub.

Advanced installation – To create routines you will need to utilize the mobile application which will offer the features available. Hue can also be connected to many third-party hardware systems allowing quite powerful automation. This is normally via a cloud/internet based connection, so it is important to remember your login and password!

If you are pairing with 3rd party systems Hue can do this fairy easily. We recommend keeping the bridge in an accessible place as you will need to press the button on the hue bridge each time you pair.

Usability Review

In our opinion Phillips Hue offers a near perfect system for smart lighting and the mobile application is quick and easy to understand and setup. Having pre-set lighting scenes is very helpful, especially with colour bulbs and the Philips development team are always adding more. The Hue system offers a great balance between simplicity, for those who just want simple remote control of their lights, and complexity, for those who want to get a little deeper and set up routines and their own lighting scenes.

Please note that the hue bulbs must always be powered on from the original wall switch in order for them to be controllable by the app and automation.
