How to Create a New Scene

Your scenes are basically presets for what you want your lights to do and will be used to other features in the app such as routines, switches, and home & away. With the Philips Hue application you can create two types of scenes, Image and Lights.

Open the Philips Hue App and select the Room you want to create a scene.

Press the plus sign button on the bottom right.

Select a Photo from either the stock Philips photos or select Camera roll to select one from your device.

Once you have selected an image, it will put your lights on this color gradient created from the image.

If you select the Lights tab on the top right, you can move each light individually to the color of the image you want.

Drag the circle around to the color you want.

After you have your lights where you want them, save and name your scene and your done!

Create a New Light Scene

Here is how you create a scene to have your lights either all on the same or different colors without having to use an image.

Select the Room you want to create the scene for.

Select the circular light icon on the left of the light to select a color.

Drag the light around to the color you want and select save.

Do this for each light until you have them all on the color you want and press save and name the scene you have created.

How to Edit a Scene

Go into a Room and Select a scene. At the top right you will see a pencil icon to edit the scene. Once you have made all your changes select save.
