Philips Hue Bridge Overview

The Bridge is the heart of any Philips Hue network. The Bridge itself is a Zigbee controller, designed to be a central box that Zigbee eqipment in the surrounding area can communicate through.

If you purchase a Starter Kit, then you will receive a Bridge in the pack. You can though purchase additional units.

Each Bridge can handle up to 50 connected bulbs and lamps, so if you are planning to create a very large network, you may need additional Bridges to manage everything. You can also configure Bridges to extend the range of the network beyond that of a single Bridge. For instance if you have less than 50 bulbs, however want to spread them out over a large area and still be synchronised.

You can also buy a Bridge to start a network with equipment that does not include one. For instance if you want to start a Hue network with LightStrips or Lamps that do not have Starter Kits available, then you can buy the Bridge separately to get everything talking to each other.

What is Philips Hue?

Philips Hue is now one of the most accessible and popular global options to create a personalised lighting suite in your home.

Developed using the smart Zigbee lighting protocol, all you need to get started is a Philips Hue Bridge and the Philips Hue app for your iOS or Android device.

The Bridge acts as a controller. Place it somewhere central and accessible, and it will talk to any of the Philips Hue bulbs, lamps and accessories you choose to plug in around your home.

Through the app, you can then control the connected equipment, either individually or in groups. If you connect your Bridge to your home router via an Ethernet cable, you can also use the app to remotely control your lighting from anywhere in the world when connected to the Internet.

As the system uses the Zigbee protocol, items can be automatically updated with new software and can also integrate with Zigbee equipment from other manufacturers.

Discover the Full Philips Hue Range

Starter Kits

Starter kits are designed for the first time Philips Hue user. Each kit comes complete with at least two bulbs, plus a Philips Hue Bridge.

The Bridge is the controller; all of your installed Hue equipment talks through it. It's also what your smartphone is talking to when you make changes. The Bridge can be connected to the Internet to allow remote control when you are out of range of your home network.


Individual bulbs can be added to your Philips Hue network at any time. A single Philips Hue Bridge can control up to 50 unique bulbs simultaneously.

Most bulbs are available in one of B22 bayonet, E27 screw or GU10 spotlight options. White and Colour / White Ambiance models are dimmable, standard White are not.


Alongside the standalone bulbs, Philips also offer plug-and-play lamps and LED tracks. These items are provided with a wired mains power adaptor.

They can also be controlled directly via smartphone apps, rather than going through a Philips Hue Bridge, although they can be included with a Bridge network if you wish to integrate them with other Hue eqipment.


Looking to remotely control or add some automation to your Philips Hue network? A few controllers are available to assist you. Motion sensors can be added and programmed with IFTTT, alongside remote control switches and dimmers.
