Filipinos can now experience light in a whole new way through intuitive technologies combined with high-quality LED lighting. Choosing from a spectrum of more than 16 million colors, Philips Hue lets you personalize your home lighting experience with custom settings and program timers to and create the perfect ambiance for any occasion.

Philips Hue lets you create the perfect ambiance at home with your scenes and routines—all throughout your day.

Here are just a few ways how:

Kickstart your day. Philips Hue lights can serve as your gentle wake-up call in the morning by automatically increasing brightness to ease you into the day.

Command at your fingertips. Don’t worry about leaving your lights turned on. You can control your Philips Hue lights from anywhere, just with the app.

Let your lights welcome you home. Set your lights to welcome you home after a long day out by enabling the geofencing feature on the Philips Hue app. You can also set the right mood with light scenes like a Tropical Twilight or Tokyo Lights or add a customized scene to your liking.

Sit back and chill. Set up a truly immersive entertainment experience by syncing your lights with music, videos, and games with Philips Hue. You can also easily communicate through voice commands with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Nest, and Apple HomeKit, and even synchronize the smart lights with Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube.

Set to snooze. Tell your go-to smart assistant like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, “Good night,” and your lights will automatically dim to prepare you for a comfortable sleep.

The Philips Hue system can do all of these and more through the Hue White and Color Ambiance (WACA) range. The system provides an entire spectrum of 16 million colors, that can be adjusted to fit any moment of the day– whether it’s a quiet personal moment or a get together with loved ones.

The Hue Starter Kit includes three Hue White and Color Ambiance bulbs and a bridge, that allows you to add up to 50 Philips Hue light bulbs, and up to 12 switches and other accessories through the Philips Hue app.
