    The BR30 bulbs work with a regular house socket. You can replace your existing incandescent bulbs with these. To alter the color, brightness, or enable any of the bulb special effects, you can use one of the apps on the App Store. For example, the "Hue Lights" app has a "Colorloop" effect that can make all of your Hue lights gradually shift through their supported colors.

  • The light bulb gets its power from the lamp, or wall socket you plug it into. The communication from your iPhone or iPad is controlled by the base station which utilizes your homes wifi. (You need a wireless wifi connection in your home fir it to work)
