Click here to read about the differences of the two control systems for Hue and what they can do for you!
Getting started with your new Philips Hue smart lighting system is very easy and just require a few simple steps. There is no difference in starting with a Bridge that comes with a starter kit, or one that you bought separately. Follow these steps to connect your new amazing lights:
Once you have your Hue Bridge setup, you are ready to start adding and connecting your different light sources.
Connecting to your Philips Hue lights using Bluetooth is also very easy and straightforward. Follow these steps to get started with your smart lighting:
The absolute most simple way to get started with Philips Hue is to buy a Hue light source or luminaire and a Hue Dim Switch remote. This allows you to quickly connect the light to the remote, but the functionality is very limited, only allowing you to dim and change between 4 pre-set light setting for up to 10 bulbs or luminaires. If you have bought any products in the Hue Color family, you will not be able to access that full range of colors. Follow these steps to get started with a remote!
Getting started with Philips Hue Outdoor lighting is not very different from the steps regarding the connection of a Hue Bridge and a Hue light listed above, but there are a few extra notes worth taking.

The Philips Hue eco-system of smart, connected lighting primarily uses a hub called the Hue Bridge to control communication between the users smart device (phone, tablet) and the different light sources placed out around the home. The Hue Bridge uses a protocol known as ZigBee to create a flexible network where the Hue bulbs and luminaires send signals between each other to increase the connectivity and speed of the system. Using the Hue system through the Hue Bridge gives access to all of the features that are available for your lights, and allows for easy download and implementation of new software updates. You can in total connect and control up to 50 different light sources, both bulbs and larger luminaires, as well as devices like remotes and motion sensors. If you play a lot of games on your PC, the bridge also allows you to start using the free software Hue Sync, as well as connect to the Hue Play HDMI sync box that works with your TV. Through the Hue Bridge, you will also get access to all connectivity to Philips Hue's partner brands and their products.
The Philips Hue app allows you to freely control your lights by turning them on and off, changing color, dimming and much more. Navigate through the stylish interface to easily keep track of what lights are on in your home, set schedules for the lights to turn on automatically, choose a theme that sets the mood or simply turn everything off with one simple push when you leave for work. With the Hue Bridge, you have full access to all of the amazing functions that your Philips Hue lighting has. Apart from the 800+ third party apps that provide unique and fun experiences and control options, you also get access to the full Hue app with more intricate control and functionality.
The Philips Hue smart lighting system can also be controlled through the recently integrated Bluetooth functionality that allows for easy connection for anyone who wants to try Hue before investing further. This Bluetooth connectivity is part of all the different light sources (bulbs, spotlights) that Philips Hue offer, as well as the large majority of all their indoor luminaires. This allows anyone to start using the system through their phone by just buying a bulb and you can then quickly expand to fill an entire room with pendants, spotlights and much more (up to 10 different light sources). If your goal is to expand your lighting system beyond just one room, then the Hue Bridge is a necessary step for you.
If you want to try out the Hue system using Bluetooth control, there are a few pointers that you need to think of. The Bluetooth system allows for a maximum of 10 different light sources to be connected and controlled through your phone. The Hue Dim Switch is the only connectable Hue accessory. Voice control is limited to Google Home Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Lighting software like Hue Sync is not supported, and there is no compability with third-party apps.
There is currently no support for Bluetooth control for any of the Philips Hue Outdoor luminaries. If outdoor lighting is something you are looking for, then the Hue Bridge is a necessity.
