Philips Hue is the world’s leading smart lighting system for the home. Since its introduction in 2012, what started as a bridge and two bulbs has evolved into an ecosystem of bulbs, luminaires, switches, sensors and apps. It's changed forever how people experience light.
“Philips Hue came from a testing shortcut. The initial idea was just to use the then-new iPhone to mockup prototypes for user testing for Philips LivingColors’ remote controls.
“That decision led to an exciting result: we found we had created a better way to control lights. We knew we were onto something big when Apple agreed to sell Hue light bulbs in their stores. That’s when we began to understand that we weren’t working on a simple lighting product, we were creating a paradigm shift in how we interact with light in our homes.
“With Philips Hue, we've changed how people engage with lighting and we help them live better, healthier, happier lives. And that's the role technology should have – it should help make people's lives better.”
