Using Philips Hue scenes
Philips Hue scenes are perfect for creating different looks in a Room or Zone — and they’re also energy efficient. To illustrate this, the top five most popular scenes (Savanna sunset, Tropical twilight, Arctic aurora, Spring blossom, and Soho) can reduce the total energy consumption of a bulb by over 70%.1 For example, by using Tropical twilight, you can reduce the amount of energy a bulb consumes by 82%.1 The ultimate energy-saving scenes are Galaxy, Blood moon, and Beginnings, each reducing energy consumption by 88%.1 Meanwhile, Tokyo and Motown come in second, each reducing up to 87% of energy consumption.1 Philips Hue users can benefit from these scenes by creating a unique ambiance for dinner with friends or relaxing on the couch — and save energy at the same time.
Dimming Philips Hue bulbs
Dimming your Philips Hue bulbs is a great way to create a cosy ambiance while helping to significantly save energy. When dimming a bulb to 70% of its maximum brightness, it uses 51% less energy.1 When dimming a Philips Hue bulb even further, such as to 50% of its maximum brightness, it saves as much as 75% on energy consumption.1 By choosing to dim your Philips Hue bulbs, you can still enjoy functional and mood lighting, while reducing your energy consumption.
Selecting colour light instead of white
By choosing from 16 million colours, Philips Hue users can personalise their light experience at home. And as white light consumes more energy than colour light, it’s easy to save energy around the home by setting Philips Hue bulbs to colour rather than white. The most energy-efficient colour is blue — when setting a colour-capable bulb to blue light, it consumes up to 79% less energy compared to white light.1 What about other colours? Blue light is followed closely by red (consuming 72% less energy compared to white), followed by green and magenta (consuming 68% and 61% less energy, respectively).1 By setting the bulb to cyan or yellow, you reduce its energy consumption by 59% and 54%, respectively.1
