Best Philips Hue Scene Images and Ideas


A Hue Scene is a preset that will change all lights that are effected, so if you set a scene in a room, all lights in that room will be changed to create the style, theme and mood of that scene. A very colourful image scene will create a colourful room, a dark red scene will dim your lights with a dark red glow.
