Create a colourfully immersive experience for your home entertainment with the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box. Simply connect this clever bit of kit to a media device with HDMI connection, such as streaming devices, games consoles, set-top boxes and more. When you’re watching your favourite subscription streaming services like Netflix or Amazon Prime, your Philips Hue lights will dim, brighten and change colour in sync with what you’re watching on the TV. So whether you’re enjoying films, programmes, listening to music or playing games, you can create a truly immersive, wonderfully colour-creative media experience.

This product includes the Sync Box. The Philips Hue Bridge (V2) and Philips Hue lights are also required, which are available separately.

Works with any Philips Hue colour-capable light
The Sync Box works with all Philips Hue White and Colour Ambiance bulbs or fixtures. You can add up to ten Philips Hue colour-capable lights, and then watch as each light responds to your on-screen TV content.

Connect multiple devices
With four HDMI inputs, you can connect up to four separate devices (the Sync Box is not compatible with smart TV apps, as the content must first pass through the Sync Box via an HDMI device).

Easy to set up and use
Simple set up allows you to easily connect to your Hue Bridge and use the Sync Box with any TV and HDMI device. You can control your entertainment experience and the Sync Box with the Philips Hue app (available on iOS and Android), via buttons on the connected media player itself, or by infrared TV remote control. Philips Hue also works with Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant smart home devices for easy control by voice.

Hue Bridge V2 required
The Hue Bridge is the heart of the smart lighting system, connecting the Hue White and Colour Ambiance smart lights to the Philips Hue app and the Sync Box, allowing you to customise and save your light settings when syncing. The Sync Box is only compatible with the square-shaped Hue Bridge V2.

    Would really like to use one of these but the majority of what I watch are through streaming apps built into the tv software (Netflix etc) which this does not work with. Such a shame.

    Your tv controller should also work with the firestick. We have an LG C1 and to be honest i find myself using the firestick apps rather than tv apps as seems quicker.

    I have Hue bridge and lights but never had one of these. Technical question: Do they allow you to pass HDMI signal through properly to your TV without affecting the output at all? i.e. currently I have an LG OLED TV and a Sonos Arc soundbar which is receiving audio on the arc channel from the TV in passthrough mode. Was wondering if using a device like this has any effect on the sound or picture output to TVs or soundbars once the signal has passed through it. I ask mainly as I know from experience in trying to pass HDMI signals through other devices, e.g. Xbox One, that it has a detrimental effect on the output.
    Have the same setup, has no effect on picture quality. Dolby vision and Atmos pass through without problem too. Auto switching can be a little annoying though

    Are the Sharpie's HDMI 2.1 compatible?

    Added a couple of sale items to bring down to £135 using code and then used 5% perks through work. Making it even cheaper. Thank you
    Thanks for the tip, did the same to get 4% thru perks

    Bought, lowest I've seen. I believe if you plug it into your 2nd output on your AV system it still syncs without going into the TV so you can still have Hdmi 2.1 if you desire. You just need a high end av system.
    It can’t do HDMI 2.1, no matter what you connect it to.

    Didn't anyone actually get this? I ordered it 25th and been given a refund this morning.....
    Yes, I ordered on 25th and it came on the 28th. I ordered this and a 55" play gradient light strip at the same time as a bundle so that could be why.

    Student Beans also offering £10 gift card for £100 spent, if someone has an account. Link below:

    i don't think this can be used as a promo code is being used alongside the purchase therefore goes against the Ts and Cs

    Don't see the point in this. Very expensive

    Pail Hibbert reviewed a similar product. I use Govee and they're good quality. I think the future-proofability of a camera is a neat idea but potentially an eye sore.

    Cannot listen to that clown for more than 5 seconds.
