How to Create and Run Scenes Using Hue Lamps

These light bulbs are here to bring hue to your life, as well as deliver clear and crisp light for all shades. They do not just look great, but they are also practical, given that they dim, flash, and pulse. They can also screw straight into your current light fittings! 

 

This guide will teach you how to:
 

  • Create and customize scenes using Hue Lamps in your Vera network

9.  The selected lights, the color, and the level of lightness are displayed in a group below the color temperature picker. If you wish to select a new color, it is important to know that the pop-up will look different; it will only highlight the lights that were not already selected
