Works with Nest
Philips Hue and Nest have teamed up to help you get the most out of your lighting and your Nest products. When your Nest Learning Thermostat knows you’re away, your hue lights will automatically switch off gently. While you’re gone, Hue will make it seem like you are home by switching your hue lights on and off to mimic your presence.
If Nest Protect finds a possible hazard it will give you a heads up by flashing the hue lights yellow alongside the audible warning. In case of an alarm, the lights will flash red before going to a dimmed red state which is best to help you navigate in smoky environments.
Please note: LEDs use around 85% less energy than incandescent bulbs and will last up to 20,000 hours.
Make an endless mix of colours to match your mood
Choose one colour, or combine different colours – thanks to the two independent light sources – to create the perfect atmosphere to match your mood, whether it’s to relax, energise or explore. More at http://bestledlamp.com/.
