Tweaking Philips LED Hue Bulbs into Severe Weather Warning Lights

A recent CNET article demonstrates how Philips LED Hue bulbs can be customized into severe weather warning lights using Internet platform service IFTTT. For full demo of how it can be done on IFTTT please see link.

Users can combine weather related RSS feeds that focus on hurricanes, tornados and other potentially dangerous natural forces to customize a weather-related recipe on IFTTT. CNET chose U.S. National Weather Service which offers detailed weather data on county and state level. The next step is simply to program the Philips Hue bulb to turn into the desired weather warning colors whenever extreme weather occurs in the region.

The service demonstrates one of the many emerging smart home or IoT applications, and illustrates Philips LED Hue bulbs have added value by working with third party smart home platforms.

A strategy that smart light manufacturers vying for larger market share in the smart home market might want to look into.
