Not too long ago, we featured a post on Freshome on how to control the lighting in your home via a mobile application. Hope you guys are ready for the next level, because in this post we will get you familiarized with Philips Hue, a personal wireless lighting system with thousands of integrated color options, all easy to activate by just clicking on your smartphone. To better understand this lighting innovation (discovered on My Modern Met), keep reading and be sure to check out the video below!

According to Philips, “the hue bridge is where all the clever stuff happens. It’s the ‘bridge’ between your bulbs and your smart phone app. And it can link up to 50 bulbs at a time. To connect your bridge, first power up and then plug into the back of your wireless router, using the network cables provided. The blue lights go on one by one. When all four lights stay on continuously, you’re ready for action. To get started, just download the free app to your smart phone or tablet. The first time it opens it’ll search for your bridge and connect to the lights. Once that’s done, you can use the app to control your wireless bulbs“. Ready to take your home lighting up a notch?
