Vivint Integrates Philips Hue to Expand Smart Home Lighting

Vivint has integrated Philips Hue products, which can be controlled from the SkyControl panel, mobile app or via Amazon Alexa and Google Home devices.

PROVO, Utah — Vivint has augmented its smart home system with Philips Hue, allowing its customers to integrate the connected lighting system from Philips Lighting (Euronext: LIGHT).

Users can control Philips Hue products from the Vivint Smart Home SkyControl panel or Vivint Smart Home mobile app. They can create custom lighting schedules for rooms, floors or their entire home, including having the Philips Hue lights on to imitate home occupancy while away.

In the Vivint Smart Home mobile app, customers can also create rules to simultaneously control multiple aspects of their smart home. They can turn off their Philips Hue lights, arm their home security system and lower the thermostat when they lock their doors and leave home. Customers can also control their lighting with voice command via Amazon Alexa or Google Home devices.

“At Vivint Smart Home, we’re committed to making it easy for our customers to create the smart home they want,” says Vivint CTO Jeremy Warren. “We’re excited to add the Philips Hue connected lighting system to the Vivint experience, and provide our customers with more ways to make their homes safer and easier to manage.”

Roger Karner, market leader, U.S., Philips Lighting, adds, “We welcome Vivint to our growing Friends of Hue partner program, to help deliver on this promise. By bringing Philips Hue and the Vivint smart home system together, customers can have a simple, seamless, connected lighting experience.”

Consumers can purchase a Vivint smart home system and Philips Hue connected lighting at one of more than 400 Best Buy locations nationwide. Professional installation of the integrated solution is also available.

In September, it was reported that Vivint partnered with Sprint to sell its connected-home devices in the mobile carrier’s retail stores. The partnership allows Sprint to combine Vivint smart home devices with its phones. Vivint rolled out its digital home services to 16 stores in Kansas City, Utah, Arizona and Ohio with plans to expand that number to 80 stores by year’s end.
