Philips Updated Its ‘Hue’ Lighting System With A Number Of New Features

Last year Philips released its iOS-controlled "Hue" lighting system that allows users to personalize the lighting experience.

Today Philips announced a major update to the Hue adding many new features. Among the most interesting is integration with IFTTT protocols to allow the system to provide visual alerts for different situations.

The new version can connect to Internet services via your smartphone or tablet, allowing the bulbs to act as indicators for different events.

“They can be set to behave in any way you choose. For example, to change color if it’s going to rain; to blink if you receive an urgent email, Facebook message from someone special; illuminate gradually as the sun sets; or even flash in your sports team’s colors when they score”.

The new version also adds geofencing, turning lights on/off when the user is approaching or leaving their home. Also the update adds recurring schedules, allowing users to set a schedule for activities (for example, waking up, bedtime) once without the need to reset it each day.
