Troubleshooting Tips

  • If the Philips Hue bridge is not found by the automatic search, please check to make sure that the Philips Hue bridge and your tablet or smartphone are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. You can also restart the search by tapping Search Again.
  • If the Philips Hue bridge still can't be found, tap Input IP Manually to search for the Philips Hue bridge with a specific IP address. (You can find the IP address in the Philips Hue official app.)
  • In the Philips Hue app, you can also manual scan for light, remove a light, change a light’s name, change bridge’s name, and much more.
