Create an ambience filled with life

Add a splash of colour to your room thanks to smart lighting. With over 16 million shades available, you can use the Philips Hue app to change the atmosphere of your room and save any of your favourites for instant access. So, whether you want to turn your living room slime green for Halloween, or a crimson red for date night, you can set the mood for every occasion.

Take gaming up a gear

Watch as the action expands off the screen and onto the walls around you. As you play your games, you can use the Hue Sync software to link up the light so that it changes colour in time with your TV screen or monitor. Letting you put everything on the line in battle or race around tracks across the globe while enjoying a truly immersive gaming experience.

Friday nights just got a whole lot better

Take entertainment to a whole new level by syncing the light with your TV and music. Using the Hue Sync software, watch as the hues extend the action in your blockbusters off the screen and into the room around you. Or, dance as the colours change to the beat of your tunes. So, whether you’re showing off your moves or snuggling up with a film, the lighting will always be at hand to brighten up your evenings.

No need to get up from your seat

Control your lighting without lifting a finger thanks to voice control. Using your Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant speaker you can ask the light to turn on or off, as well as dim the brightness or change colour. So, if you accidentally left it on as you settle down to watch a film, you can just ask your assistant to do the hard work for you.

Control the lights when you are away

Manage your lighting when you’re out and about. Using the free app, you can connect the bulb to your Philips Hue Bridge (sold separately) and use WiFi to control all the settings remotely. So, if you forget to turn the light off when you leave the house, you can do it from your phone whenever you have an internet connection – saving you money on your energy bills.

Easiest setup. Changed the whole rooms dynamics

As with all Philips hues, the product is amazing. It’s portable but come with fixtures. We have 3 on the back on the tv with the sync box and it has really enhanced the lighting. It’s actually amazing. We also have a few more placed around being lovely lighting into the living room. Ideal for console tables or cube shelving and tv units. So worth the money

Expensive but worth it

This was my first Hue Play. I’m using it for ambience lighting and while the brightness is perfect for what I want, it won’t light a room. It integrated perfectly with my other hue lights and routines. I’ve had Hue lighting (20+) for over 3 years and one hasn’t failed yet. It’s smaller than I expected so very discrete - check out the measurements if critical for you as the pictures make it appear bigger. Delivery and availability from AO.com was great. Really happy with my purchase.

Great fish tank light.

I actually purchased this light to join 2 others that light my fish tank. They give me complete control over the mood of the fishtank lighting and colour cycling gives another dimension to the fish tank. The soft on characteristic of the light also reduces starting the fish rather than an instant switch on. The light is easy to set up and the hue app allows me to join all 3 lights under one group which syncs all of the lights to the same colour and brightness. Great device no negative experiences as of yet.

Philips hue play

I find these great to use in small places and have used them in cabernet and on fire place to back light it as these are deceptively bright.

Philip's Hue Play

Easy to set up and install, download the app connect it to the Hue hub and works straight away. Excellent purchase especially for older kids and teenagers.

Brilliant little light

The light comes in a nice package where everything is included to set it up. It is very easy to add it to your hue hub and works effortlessly. I agree that this is a bit pricey but the quality of the light is worth it. I can only recommend
