The Philips Hue Bridge is a must-have device if you want to integrate the Philips family of products into your smart home. You can control and connect 50 lights, sensors, and other accessories with the bridge.

The Hue Bridge has a straightforward setup, so you don’t have to muck around in settings all day. Philips uses Zigbee and never strains your Wi-Fi, which is a big deal if you have multiple smart lights, smart plugs, speakers, outdoor security cameras, and other accessories working in your home. The Bridge is Matter-certified and works with Apple HomeKit, Google Home, Alexa devices, and other hubs.

Philips Hue Bridge in use

With the Philips Hue Bridge and the smartphone app, it’s a simple job to create schedules and automation. If you want your lights to turn on when you walk in the front door, you can do that with geofencing and Philips smart switches and sensors. (Note: sensors and switches are sold separately.)

This is the second generation of the Hue Bridge. New since gen-one is the ability to use voice commands with Siri, a fresh design, and the addition of Matter.

Philips Hue is a dead-simple system to use, and there is a wide range of sensors, lights, and other accessories out there. It’s the priciest of them all, though. If you prefer convenience and plug-and-play functionality over saving money, this is one of the best smart devices you can buy.
