Connected Homes

A new era in home lighting has arrived with the introduction of the world’s smartest web-enabled LED home lighting system, Hue. Not only has it changed the way we think about and experience lighting in our homes but it’s also allowed us to create and control light via app technology.

Smarter Cities

Smarter Cities

With the global urban population set to pass five billion by 2030, we are developing innovative solutions that will help meet the future demands of city living. One such solution is Philips CityTouch that enables dynamic, intelligent control on a citywide scale – providing light precisely when and where it is needed. Another one is to help cities enhance their identity.


Better performance

Light has a positive impact on people, affecting their physical, emotional or mental states. Philips SchoolVision allows teachers to control the classroom atmosphere and tailor the light to suit the learning task or the time of day. A different light setting helps to invigorate pupils when they need to be more active, supports a fresh start to the day or afternoon, aids concentration during challenging tasks and creates a relaxing atmosphere for individual work or quiet time.
