DreamScreen set to work with Philips Hue Lights

Published

If you are not aware of DreamScreen then it is a simple to install system that allows lights to sync with devices inputted into your TV. Using a simple connector that goes between the HDMI inputted device and your TV it takes the color details being sent to the TV and projects light to match this depending on where on the screen the color is.

Working with small lamps (Sidekicks) or light strips that can be installed behind the TV  light is projected to match the onscreen display. This can be used with set top boxes, games consoles or music too.

If you already have Philips Hue set up at home and want a better way to sync your lights with your TV then Dreamscreen is a great option, at the moment it isn’t compatible, however we emailed the team at DreamScreen and it is on its way, along with integration with a wider range of home technologies too.

We plan to release a device later this year to meet customer demand for integrating DreamScreen with home automation technology. This will be called the “DreamScreen Connect” and will allow for DreamScreen to integrate with home automation technologies such as:

  • Amazon Alexa
  • Google Assistant
  • IFTTT
  • Philips Hue
  • LIFX
  • Logitech Harmony

We will have the ability to add more in the future via wireless updates. We plan to make an official announcement about DreamScreen connect around the end of April. The expected price range of this device will be about $30-$40. We’re excited to expand the DreamScreen’s functionality and can’t wait to see the creative setups our customers come up with!

We shall update as soon as we know more and when to expect it to be released.

    Good afternoon,

    I am in the marketing for some dynamic TV ambient lighting. But before I feel comfortable making a purchase I have a couple of questions:

    1. I was wondering if I can get an update on whether you have successfully launch DreamScreen Connect. I have an ever-expanding smart home and integration with Phillips Hue and Amazon Echo is extremely important to me.

    2. Does DreamScreen work with a home theater system. In other words, if I have all my devices (Cable box, Playstation, Blu-ray player, Apple TV, etc) running into a surround sound receiver, can I run the output HDMI out of the receiver into your box and have it work as expected?

    Thanks for your time and I look forward to your response.

    I am currently finishing up an app for Apple TV that acts as a bridge from Plex Media Server to Hue. Similar to Hue Sync. Is this something you guys would be interested in? If yes, what would be an acceptable price to ask? Thinking $5.

      Dean, that would be amazing, but I need a little clarification on how this would work on Plex / ATV, namely is this a background app for TvOS or a plug-in for Plex?
