Philips Hue Home Automation Smart Bridge 2.0

First and foremost a lighting range, this is one of the cheapest bridges there is. Ideal if only the lighting in your home is the best solution.

The bridge is the heart of your system, connecting up to 50 hue lights and accessories. There is enough to cover your entire home with smart lighting. All you have to do is plug it in and connect it to the router with an Ethernet cable. Although the Philips Hue Bridge “only works with Philips Hue products”, it can also communicate with Nest, Samsung SmartThings, Logitech Harmony and Yale as part of a system thanks to IFTTT. A hub (whether it’s the name of the Philip or a generic name) is required. Although the Hue Bridge only controls the lighting area, which appears very limited compared to many other bridges on the market, this does very well. Thanks to the focus, they have created the best intelligent lighting range on the market, with incandescent bulbs, light strips, outdoor spotlights and table lamps on the market. You can also choose white or colored.
