Nest meets hue
Nest® and Philips hue have teamed up for you to get the most out of both products. We believe that there are fantastic shared use-cases that give you great new ways to interact with your home. Both to make it safer and respond more to you and your habits.
What you can do
Philips hue can interact with all your Nest® products, from using your Nest Cam to turn off the lights when you’ve left the room to switching your lights to the best setting to see through smoke if there is an emergency. We can even use your Nest Cam together with Philips hue as a smarter security light or protect your home by simulating your presence when you are away.
More to come
We think there are more great uses across our products and both companies are working closely together to bring more great experiences in the future.
About Philips hue
Philips hue combines brilliant LED light with intuitive technology. Then puts it in the palm of your hand.
Together, the bulbs, the bridge and the app will change the way you use light. Forever. Experiment with shades of white, from invigorating blue/white to cozy yellow/white. Or play with all the colors in the spectrum.
Not just stunning, hue is smart too. And it’s tailored for you.
The Nest Learning Thermostat™ programs itself and automatically helps save energy when you’re away. And you can control it from anywhere using your smartphone, tablet or computer.
Nest Protect speaks up to tell you what the problem is and where it is. Connect Nest Protect to Wi-Fi and it will message your phone when the alarm goes off or if the batteries start to run low.
The new Nest Cam is designed to watch out for your home and family – even when you can’t.
Get started with hue + Nest
Leave home worry-free
When Nest knows you’re away, your hue lights will automatically switch off gently. When you are gone, we’ll make it seem like you are home by switching your hue lights on and off to mimic your presence.
Left the room, lights off
If Nest cam sees there has been no movement or noise for a while it fades off the lights in order to save you energy.
A smarter security light
If its dark outside and Nest cam notices some movement then it turns on some lights after a short delay to make the intruder think you are there. Just like you would if you heard a noise. Don’t worry we’ll turn them off again 15 minutes after motion stops.
If Nest Protect finds a possible hazard it will give you a heads up by flashing the hue lights yellow alongside the audible warning. In case of an alarm, the lights will flash red before going to a dimmed red state which is best to help you navigate in smoky environments.
