Why in the world do I need to change the entire color of a room? The real question is, why not? There have been some recent efforts by multiple different companies to capitalize on this new gadget that people are quickly starting to like but Philips seems to have found the right way to do it. They introduced the Philips Hue Color Changing bulbs which will be sold exclusively through the Apple Store which is a good partner to team up with.
The immediate way that people could probably find a use for this would be event spaces. No more having to run over to a big giant wall of controls to raise, change, or control the lighting. Instead, you can pull out your smart phone and with a touch of a button can completely change the whole look and feel of the space.
Now to the real question, why in the world as a home owner should I buy this? If you ever entertain big groups of people, then I would say this gadget would definitely apply to you. If you like to REALLY set the mood for a romantic dinner for you and a girl, imagine truly setting the mood by changing the entire ambience of a dining room. Finally, if you really don’t think you need the Philips Hue bulbs, maybe you should think about the quality of light you currently have while reading off of your laptop, tablet, or book (if you are the old school kind). The nice thing about the Hue bulbs is that you actually have multiple sets of “white” light to choose from. Some are meant for easier reading and others are to give rooms that brilliant white light (better than the old yellow hue).
So maybe there are just a few reasons to consider. The price is a little high but you can get a nice little package right now that includes two bulbs and the “bridge” required to activate the lights. If you live in an apartment, I would recommend not wasting the money but if you are a homeowner, this is a really nice and quick way to change the ambience of your house.
