    Set the perfect look and feel in your room with new Philips Hue with Bluetooth

    June 27, 2019

    • Use the Philips Hue Bluetooth app on your smart device for easy setup and control of your lighting, to create your desired atmosphere or complement your home decor
    • Seamlessly connect your Philips Hue with Bluetooth with Alexa or the Google Assistant


    Somerset, New Jersey – With today’s introduction of Philips Hue with Bluetooth, Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, makes its smart lighting system even more accessible. Setting the mood in your room, whether you are hosting a dinner party or relaxing at the end of the day, is now as easy as screwing in a Philips Hue Bluetooth light bulb and tapping an app to set it up and control it.

    With Philips Hue Bluetooth smart lighting, there’s no wiring or guesswork when it comes to choosing the right lighting for your space. You can use the lights to easily create the right ambiance for every occasion or use millions of colors to decorate your room.

    You can start with a single light bulb or instantly connect multiple Hue Bluetooth products, and later, seamlessly upgrade your system with the Philips Hue bridge to enjoy even more functionality. Using the Philips Hue Bluetooth app, you can:


    • Turn the lights on/off and dim or brighten them to your preferred setting
    • Choose from millions of colors and any shade of white light to paint the wall and Instagram your space
    • Use the pre-set scenes to set the mood or match your daily routine 
    • Allow multiple users to control the same lights


    People often underestimate the power that lighting can have on the ambiance of a room. By adding Bluetooth to our Philips Hue smart lighting, we’re making it easy to experiment and have fun with light at home. All it requires is the smartphone you already have. We’re confident that once you start, you’ll want to keep exploring what else Hue can do.”

    Using Philips Hue Bluetooth with voice assistants

    Philips Hue with Bluetooth also works with your voice. You can easily connect your Hue Bluetooth lights directly with Alexa if you have a compatible Amazon Echo device.* If you purchase the light bulbs on , using the same account associated with your compatible Echo device, just power on your light bulb, and Alexa can complete the setup process for you. Bulbs purchased elsewhere also easily connect to compatible Echo devices – power on your light bulb and say “Alexa, discover my devices.” Then, simply ask Alexa to turn your Hue Bluetooth lights on/off, dim/brighten them or put on a certain color or shade of white light.”


    Compatibility and seamless setup via Bluetooth with Google Home and Google Nest devices is coming soon. Until then, the new Hue bulbs with Bluetooth will work with the Google Assistant via the Hue bridge.

    Extend the possibilities

    The Philips Hue bridge is still the heart of the Hue system. Add it at any time to expand your system with more lights and smart accessories throughout your entire home – indoors and out. With the bridge, you can access the full Philips Hue ecosystem including away from home control functionality, Philips Hue Entertainment and Friends of Hue and third-party app compatibility.
