Sridhar Kumaraswamy, Business Leader Home Systems for Philips Hue to present at the inaugural Smart Home Summit (http://www.smarthomesummit.net) in London on 29th and 30th September 2015
Smart connected devices are changing the world as we know it. The Internet of Things is making the home an intelligent, responsive environment that's more enjoyable, convenient and efficient. At the heart of the smart home is connected lighting. Royal Philips, the global leader in lighting, will share its vision of the impact of connected lighting in the smart home and the boundless experiences it can deliver at the Smart Home Summit.
As host sponsors, Philips will explain the birth of Hue, the world's first internet connected light bulb, and why there is much more to lighting than illumination. Philips will also divulge how they are taking connected living to the next level by collaborating with the world's leading companies to accelerate the application of lighting in the development of the smart home market.
Sridhar Kumaraswamy, Business Leader Home Systems for Philips Hue comments: "The Internet of Things is all about using technology as an enabler to create meaningful experiences for consumers. Philips Hue has become a cornerstone of the connected home by offering interoperability with other home devices to deliver the best possible at home experience. We are committed to pushing the boundaries of light and unlocking its full potential within the smart home."
Launched in 2012, Philips Hue marked a new era in home lighting, reinventing how consumers experience and engage with light in their homes. It can enhance everyday moments in the home, deliver peace of mind when away from home and ultimately provide limitless new experiences through more than 300 third-party apps. Apps have been developed that enable people to experience light in new and innovative ways. From washing the walls with the dominant colours on screen as they watch a movie, to creating the ultimate immersive gaming experience where lights react to real time game play, to changing colour with the beat of a song, or even syncing to a fitness wristband so light can indicate when a personal goal has been reached.
The extensive Philips Hue connected ecosystem includes portable lamps such as Philips Hue Go, dual-lighted lamps such as Philips Hue Beyond, control devices such as Philips Hue tap and Apple Watch as well as bulbs and spotlights. Philips Hue lets you enjoy endless new experiences.
