For years, those who want to get their hands on a Philips Hue had to source it abroad or in the gray market here in the Philippines. But now, they’re officially available in the Philippines.
If you’re not familiar, Philips Hue products are smart lighting solutions that you can pair with an Android or iOS device.
They can also be controlled with Alexa or Google Assistant. So you can turn it on or off, or change colors via your mobile device or smart speaker.
Users can even buy a bunch of them, place it in every area in your room/house, and create a mood by setting different color combinations. It also syncs with music streaming apps like Spotify to create a cool visualization effect that plays in uniform with the music.
To get started, you need to purchase the starter kit. It comes with a hub where all the different Philips Hue lights will go in-sync and will connect them to the internet.
The Philips Hue White Ambiance starter kit has a price of Php7,490 in the Philippines. You can also get the White and Color Ambience starter kit for Php10,390.
You can then purchase add-ons like a white and color ambiance bulb for Php2,990, Bride bundle for Php3,690, White ambiance bulb for Php1,790, Wireless dimmer switch for Php1,290, and a Motion sensor for Php2,690.
