Can the Hue bulbs be controlled with an iphone from a different city/state?

I'd like to be able to turn the Hue bulbs on and off from out of the area. Will this work?

    Yes you can. Just needs to be set up on the Hue web site.

  • Yes , you can control them from anywhere in the world in a number of ways - I use a website and iPhone app ( ifttt ) that also allows you to set up actions for your lights from email , Facebook and so on - so you could send a mail with a subject like "lights off" and trigger your Phillips hue actions via Iftt !
