Smart lighting is enabled by Philips Hue and Wink, two well-known manufacturers. Both provide excellent features, and you’ll almost certainly purchase both.
Philips Hue bulbs are easy to use, cheap, and have a wide range of compatibility. You can manage your lights from your smartphone using Philips Hue. The Philips Hue bridge connects Wink to the whole Philips Hue lighting series.
You need to have a Hue Bridge to get started, but you can plug up to fifty light bulbs and 12 other accessories into it once you have one. Therefore one Bridge is more than enough to light up your home. Furthermore, if you are using Wink, you won’t need the Philips Hue app: you’ll be able to control your lights and set them to turn on and off based on the condition of your other devices using the Wink app.
As long as you have an internet connection, Wink lets you manage your Philips Hue lights from anywhere in the globe. In addition, Philip Hue’s lighting solutions may be created and controlled via a smartphone app.
Philip Hue’s lighting devices may be designed and controlled with a smartphone. It offers many options to let you create a personalized environment that fits your and your family’s lifestyle. For example, it allows you to reproduce all 16 million colors in the rainbow. In addition, all of its functions may be controlled from a distance.
