Dim the lights to watch a movie, set the right mood for a special evening, or just go nuts and create a disco lighting affect to make the neighbors think you’ve lost it.. all of this is an iPhone (or Apple Watch) touch away with the Phillips Hue bulbs and app.
The bulbs are a little pricey (starter pack averages $199 w/three bulbs and controller) but that is the hardest part – everything else about these are fantastic.
Hue has a free app to manage the colors and scenes, pus there are lots of 3rd party apps to help as well.
And for a bit more you can get a handy remote – check out the video below:
And you can manage it all from your wrist!
The Phillips Hue bulbs are not cheap but much cheaper than a tradition home automation system, work great in any apartment or home (even large ones) and are portable.
