Which light bulbs work with Hive?
All you need to set up Hive smart lighting is the Hive app, a Hive Hub or Hive Hub 360, and the smart bulbs of your choice. Our app also works with Philips Hue bulbs. You can even make lighting groups containing a mix of Hive and Philips Hue.
Do other bulbs work with Hive?
All of Hive’s lights are integrated with other Hive devices, enabling you to set up Hive Actions in the app. On top of that, Philips Hue lightbulbs also now integrate with Hive devices.
How do you use Hive bulbs?
With our Hive Lights, you just screw them in to your light fitting like normal, then use the app on your smartphone to connect to them. This is done on WiFi via a home hub – a little device that’s plugged into your broadband router. When they’re connected, that’s it. You’re done.
How do you control a hive light bulb?
To set your Hive light bulb’s tone or colour temperature, visit the Hive app’s home screen and tap the light you wish to control. Turn the light on by tapping the bulb icon in the middle of your screen.
