Philips Lighting Honored for Connected Home Lighting Breakthroughs in 2016


Home lighting that turns on automatically when you need it? Lighting that easily changes to fit your every mood? Lighting that responds to your voice or a tap of your wearable device?

With Philips Hue, light has officially evolved from something we simply turn on and off, to something that makes our lives easier and better and our homes smarter. It is paving the way for the Internet of Things (IoT) to become an integral part of our everyday lives.

“Philips Lighting has made tremendous strides over the last year. The company’s new product introductions and Internet of Things (IoT) brand collaborations are demonstrating that smart home technology can truly deliver a personal, practical, seamless and extraordinary living experience,” said James Johnson, Managing Director at IoT Breakthrough. “We are pleased to honor Philips Lighting as “Connected Home Lighting Company of the Year” in the 2016 IoT Breakthrough Awards.”


Here’s just a glimpse at what connected home lighting can now do for you:

  • No more fumbling for the lights when you go to the bathroom at night. A gentle, warm light, triggered by the Philips Hue motion sensor, will help guide you safely.
  • No more struggling to get quality shuteye. You can harness the power of the full spectrum of white light, available in Philips Hue White Ambiance, to help support your sleep/wake cycle.
  • No more straining for the light switch when your arms are overloaded with groceries – use your voice to command Apple’s Siri, Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant to turn your Philips Hue lights on easily for you.


2016 was a big year for Philips Lighting in forever changing the way we think about, control and experience home lighting. We’re excited to continue to demonstrate the limitless possibilities connected lighting offers in the year ahead.
