Getting Started with Philips Hue.
First thing we need to setup is your Philips Hue Bridge. Your Bridge may be square or round depending on which generation of the starter kit you purchased, however the setup process is still the same.

Plugin the DC power adapter into the back of the hue bridge and then into an available power outlet near your home router
Connect the provided Ethernet cable into an available Ethernet port on your router and connect the other end into the port on the hue bridge. Wait for all lights on the Hue Bridge to become a solid blue color, this could take up to 5 minutes.
Install all of your hue lights within 30 to 50 feet of the Hue Bridge and power the light switch on. The bulbs will come on a default yellow (2700K) color.
Step 4. Installing the Philips Hue Application
Once you have the Philips Hue app installed, it will present you with the Intro to scroll through. Once you have finished the into, it will search for your Hue Bridge. Please make sure your device is on the same wireless network that the bridge is plugged into.
If you see this screen it means the Hue application was able to find your Hue Bridge, press the Set up button to continue. If it not find your hue bridge, ensure the bridge is plugged in properly and confirm your devices wifi settings to ensure you are on the correct network.
When you see this screen, press the center button on your Hue Bridge to link it to your Hue App
