We also let you search for devices that work with significant ecosystems, like Google Assistant and other smart devices that are compatible with the ones you already have in your home. This article will help you learn what smart devices work with Philips Hue Smart Lighting.
You will be very disappointed if you search Best Buy or Amazon for devices that work with Philips Hue. We just searched, and we found the following
Philips Hue smart lights work with all three major voice platforms: Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit. You can use Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant voice commands to turn your Hue lights on or change colors. But remember that because Philips Hue works with these voice assistants, smart devices with built-in voice platforms, like Lenovo's Smart Display 7 with Google Assistant, are also compatible. They function like the actual smart speakers and systems, maybe minus a few features. So check your smart speakers and televisions to see if they have any of these voice platforms built-in. If so, you can use voice commands on these smart devices to control your Philips Hue Lights.
We found two smart home security systems compatible with Philips Hue, Xfinity Home and Vivint Smart Home. Both systems have special integrations allowing you to control your Philips Hue smart lights through their app. But note that the integrations are straightforward. You can turn your Philips Hue lights on and off using the app or have them on or off with predetermined actions or rules. You can't change bulb colors or anything like this with these integrations.
In addition to these two smart home security systems, there are others you can integrate your Philips Hue smart lights with, but you might have to be a little adventurous. Philips Hue smart lights work on Z-Wave, Zigbee, Wi-Fi, and Matter wireless protocols. If you have a hub compatible with any of these wireless protocols, you will be able to integrate these smart lights, but you will have to use the hub's app and not Philips Hue's app to control the lights. As a result, we found 19 compatible security systems.
And speaking of hubs, Philips Hue works with specific smart home systems and platforms. They allow connecting a Philips Hue smart light with a smart speaker or motion sensor. If This Than That (IFTTT) is one platform, you can create your home automation or routines using applets.
Besides IFTTT, the Samsung SmartThings platform is compatible with Philips Hue smart lights. This integration is great if you own a Samsung SmartThings smart device. This would include smart appliances, televisions, speakers, and more.
In addition, we found over 50 hubs that work with Philips Hue smart lighting. See our complete list by clicking the link below.
Besides the smart devices and systems we mentioned, we found many more that can work with Philips Hue. Many need a controller or hub for the integrations to work. For instance, if you have an Apple iPhone and Apple Watch, you can control your Philips Hue smart lights using the Apple Watch or your voice through the Apple Watch. We also found Lutron is compatible with Philips Hue lights. However, the Lutron Aurora Switch is the only Lutron device that can be controlled using the Hue app.
