Building My Smart-home with Philips Hue by Philips Lighting

Smart homes are the 'IN' trend in recent years. Ever since I received my Amazon Echo early this year, I am really impressed with the smart-home technologies that make living more comfortable, convenient, secure, entertaining, and sustainable. Since then, I am always on the look for more smart-home technologies and I am glad that I found Philips Hue.
Philips Lighting (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting has launched the Philips Hue, the personal wireless lighting system that allows users to control their connected lights in their home or from anywhere in the world using a smart device in Malaysia last month. 
Choosing from a spectrum of more than 16 million colors, Philips Hue lets users personalize their home lighting experience with custom settings and program timers to help manage daily schedules. Malaysians can now experience this smart home lighting system that combines high-quality LED lighting with intuitive technologies.
Philips Hue WACA Bulb looks like an ordinary light bulb but it is beyond what you could imagine!

I was really excited to try out the Philips Hue Kit which includes 2 smart bulbs, a Color Ambiance Lightstrips and a Hue Bridge. It was easy to install, I got it done in within 15 minutes. 
First, connect the Hue bridge to your wi-fi router, which just required connecting the LAN cable. Once plugged in, you have to download the free HUE app. The app download and installation took a few minutes, and then it was just a press of a button to connect the phone and the bridge. Once downloaded and opened the app, we could start playing with the lights immediately. Pretty easy, right?
We installed the 2 smart bulbs in our bedroom, and the Color Ambiance Lightstrips at the living room. The lights are controlled by the regular on/off switch. Powered by Philips Hue app that is available in App store and Google play store, once the light bulbs and lightstrips are turned on, user could easily control them via the app easily.
For instance, the lights can be dimmed manually using the slide bar, or you can choose “scenes” and make the lights into bright, dimmed, or super dimmed (nightlight). We can also turn on the lights before we get home, or turn off the light when going out. This is really easy and convenience in daily life.
The best part? The colors of the lights can be changed instantly via the app. We could change the color of light according to our mood, for example turn on the cool white light to stay focused and alert for work during the day and in the evening there is a desire to relax, which can be accomplished by dimming the lights and switching to warmer light temperatures.
Philips Hue uses the open ZigBee Light Link standard so that it can be integrated with other ZigBee certified systems. Philips is known to have the most extensive compatibility with other smart-home systems. 
Philips Hue users too can easily communicate through voice commands with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Nest, and Apple HomeKit, and even synchronize the smart lights with music, games and movies. 
My family really enjoy the functionality of Philips Hue. It is a great smart lighting system that is wireless, easy to install, easy to use and gives plenty of options for how to set up our home. My Smart-home dream is more complete with Philips Lighting now. Bravo Philips!
