Philips Hue API Integrations

Build and run workflows using the Philips Hue API. Use 1000s of source-available triggers and actions across 1,700+ apps. Or write custom code to integrate any app or API in seconds.

Overview

Philips Hue offers a full suite of APIs that allow developers to use their lights to create amazing applications and experiences. The Philips Hue API allows developers to control an array of features and settings that make the lights in a room act as if they are alive. Here are some of the things you can build with the Philip Hue API:

  • Color changing effects like fading between different colors, flashing between colors and creating various moods throughout the room
  • Scheduling lights to turn on and off based on time
  • Automatically dimming lights based on light levels outside
  • Automatically adjusting entire color pallets for a more natural look
  • Providing a more immersive experience with your music and movies
  • Creating virtual assistants that you can control using spoken commands
  • Smart home automation for controlling other devices using voice commands and creating specific rules for the lights
  • Creating immersive gaming experiences with the lights
  • Developing applications to monitor the amount of energy your lights are using and to optimize your energy consumption

Authentication

Philips Hue uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Philips Hue account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Philips Hue and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Philips Hue API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

OAuth Request Configurations:
