Tips for your Hue Halloween Lights
Here are some of out top tips to using Hue lights to transform your home into a haunted house for Halloween.
Positioning your lights
With the new Hue outdoor lights it allows you to position the lights where you want, the Hue Lily spots or Calla posts are great, moving to areas so they are hidden allows them to suddenly light up when people are not expecting them and also cannot see where the light is coming from.
Combining this with the Hue motion sensor you can suddenly start all the effects on any unsuspecting people coming to your door.
Adding white paper to a window and placing your hue lights behind can create a silhouette effect with objects placed in front of the lights.Pumpkins, skeletons and strange toys can work great.
Sync to spooky music
There are some great apps that will sync your Hue bulbs with music, so your bulbs with some haunted halloween music and sounds can create an impressive and spooky look to your home from outside.
Flickering Candle Effects
If you don’t want music and perhaps something a little more subtle then a candle effect can look great, apps such as OnSwitch for Android and iPhone works really well. Link this to your outdoor Hue color bulbs, or perhaps a lamp positioned on the window cill inside.
With the release of the filament bulbs you can make this effect look even better with those stylish old vintage bulbs.
Use quick strobe flashes to create a scary effect in dark rooms, turning lights on and off quickly creating a bright flash of light is a clever way to add a spooky effect for halloween. Hue Disco allows you to create a strobe lighting effect perfect for this.
Without creating flashing effects you can easily change the colour of your hue bulbs to create a spooky feeling, dim your lights, set them to dark deep greens, oranges or reds.
