We all know that lighting matters. It can set the mood, change the mood and spark a few sexy moments (if you catch the drift) in any space. Now, we’re going to assume that your home obviously has lights that you can switch on and off, but what if we told you that there’s a way to control them even more so you can get the perfect ambiance every single time?
Yeah, Phillips’ Hue White Ambiance A19 Starter Kit allows you to control exactly what your lights look like at any time of day. Want your lamp to mimic the sunset? Just set it and forget it. Want to make it look like you’re home even when you’re not? Just set it and forget it. No, seriously. All you have to do is set the mood and customize your daily routines. The kit comes with two Hue white ambiance light bulbs, one Hue bridge, one dimmer switch and a power supply and LAN cable–allowing you to connect the Hue bridge to your router. The lights can be wirelessly controlled from anywhere using the Phillip Hue app (or any third party Hue app) on any smart device. How cool is that?
You can connect up to 50 HUE light bulbs to a single system. And, although the kit comes with just two bulbs, additional bulbs can be bought for $30 each. Oh. and did we mention that, according to Phillips, these HUE bulbs use 80 per cent less energy than traditional bulbs so it’s economical too. Double win!
Who it’s for:
Everyone who’s ever wanted to feel like a light magician in their own home.
