I’ve recently started a new role at Philips Lighting - a very exciting adventure into the world of connected lighting! As part of my induction I was given a Hue White and Colour Starter Kit, along with a couple of bulbs and accessories to help me understand how the product works and really test it in anger with my family.
I quite like new gadgets, so I went straight home, installed the bridge and changed the bulbs in the living room, hallway & my daughters nursey. It was all very simple! I played around with the huge range of colours with my daughter (16 million colours to be precise!), who thought it was a great fun to shout out the colours she wanted me to change the lights to. This was also a great distraction in the mornings when she woke up that bit too early, so I could get an extra 5 minutes in bed!).
I have also explored the routines function of Hue - allowing me to set the lights to a warm light setting, gradually fading to a night light, helping her drop off to sleep. It also meant I didn’t have to creep into her room to turn the lights off myself, so no risk of waking her up!
