So, what's all the hype around Philips Hue, anyway? Well, this innovative smart lighting connects to your smart assistant – that could be Alexa or Google Assistant – allowing you to control the lights in your home using single voice commands. It's also possible to set lighting schedules, which is super handy if you're heading on holiday and want to give the impression that someone's home, even if they're not.

And, if you're really into your tech, you can also use platforms such as IFTTT (If This Then That) to have your lighting mirror the action in a film or the music you're listening to. Plus, you can also set your lighting to change colour on command – for example, if your burglar alarm goes off, you could have your entire internal lighting system flash red to alert neighbours. Clever.

Want to keep things a little more straightforward? Philips Hue also makes it possible to completely customise your lighting system, creating the ideal ambience for any situation.
