How secure are these? Can anyone with the app turn my lights on or off?

These sound very interesting but I'm concerned about using them in public office space. Can pranksters turn off my lights?

    In theory no. To control the bulbs you need two things:

    1.- Be on the same wifi network (It supposed you have this with password)
    2.- synchronized the device running the app pushing, physically, a button on the hue hub.

    You can control your lamps using the web access via Philips hue page but this page it is protected by the password you type.
