Philips' new LED lighting can be controlled through your smartphone, enabling you to choose different hues and moods.

Hue from Philips is a new type of lightbulb that can be controlled through a companion app using your smartphone or tablet. The bulbs come with 11 LEDs in three different colors, which can be combined to create up to 16 million hues.

A wireless hub plugs into your home router and you press the button to identify your Hue bulbs, which fit into most standard lamps. Then using the app, you can rename the lights, assign each one a different color and brightness, and set a timer to control when they turn on and off.
