In this 2 part video review, we take a tour of the Philips Hue Lighting System. In my opinion, the best, most complete remote controlled, colored LED lighting system you can get right now, outside of a professionally done custom setup. They aren’t faultless, but they’re definitely a lot of fun to play around with.
Part 1 goes over the different hue light bulbs and strips I use in my condo as well as basic operation of the lights when used with a dimmer and on/off switch.
In the second video I show you how to best setup your controls using widgets in an iOS device as well as go over my 4 favorite apps for use with the Philips Hue bulbs.
Note that according to slashgear, Philips will be releasing their 2nd gen bulbs, said to be capable of 800 lumens vs 600-630 of the current line. A 33% increase in brightness is not an insignificant figure. They’re releasing a new dimmer switch as well.
