Here’s How To Register & Do Voice Commands With The Hue App

If you just started to use the Philips light bulb kit and the Hue Bridge in your home, then there’s a high chance you already have the Hue app that pairs with it. But if you’re having a difficult time either registering it or using it to control your lights in your house; then we will give you a basic guide on how to get started.

So here’s 6 simple steps on how to register and command your HomeKit lights from the app:

1. First, you’re going to open up your Hue app.

2. Then tap “Homekit and Siri” and the app will open up your camera’s viewfinder.

3. Next, you’ll have to point at the small pairing code at the bottom of your Hue bridge, which comes with your special lights to get registered.

4. Now once it’s registered with your lights, make sure you’re connected to the same Wi-Fi Network that’s connected to the Hue Bridge, so that everything is synced.

5. Then you can give a test command to see how it works, by saying “Turn on my lights” through Siri; and the Hue lights should turn on instantly.

6. And once you see that it works alright, you should pretty much be done and ready to use your in-home smart lights with ease.

But don’t forget that you can also use this app or the Apple Home app to control your home or Apple TV as well, by just going to your device’s Settings > Accounts > iCloud and connect HomeKit to be able to control the channels on your Television.
