Do you have to log in to the software to control the lighting when in your home? Or a can you just tap the app and turn lights on and off?

Would the system work with motion sensor on off switches so you could set your lighting preference and then have it come on when you enter the room?

    There is not login needed when you are at home in the same WiFi network that your bridge. The setup is actually super simple and fast, 1 minute max.


    You do need to link you Bridge with a Philips Hue Account when you want to control the lights outside your WiFi network.
