Philips Hue Smart Light Kit

Review Date 11/01/2018

Lights that dance with your music, jump with your movies, or pound with your videos games — maybe this isn't tech that will save the world. But lights that can gradually get brighter in the morning to help you wake up or glow softly for reading do sound like a better way to light up your life. Toss in the ability to set timers and control with your voice when paired with a home hub and things could be looking a little brighter.

There seem to have been documented hacks of these devices in the past, but Philips Hue has recently updated its encryption in May 2018. Here's hoping no one hacks your smart lights and leaves you in the dark.

The security model of the Hue control system is dependent on the user having a strong Wi-Fi key. This is a known issue: it seems that Philips are well aware of it.
