Sengled vs. Philips Hue — What’s Different?

Philips Hue

Energy Stats – Sengled offers a feature called energy stats, which allows you to check on your overall energy consumption from a smart bulb, therefore providing you with the opportunity to cut down on future costs.

While Philips Hue lacks this function.

Technology & Connectivity – Both models use completely different technology in order to operate.

The Sengled WiFi uses WiFi technology in order to connect with your router meaning no additional bridges or hubs are required.

While Philips Hue requires a Philips Hue Bridge in order to connect to Zigbee technology, increasing the overall price of the product.

Entertainment – Philips Hue has a strong edge when it comes to its entertainment features.

As you can seamlessly sync up the smart bulb with your music, moves or even games for a truly immersive experience, which Sengled lacks.

Apple HomeKit – For iPhone users, you’ll be glad to know that Philips Hue lighting is compatible with Apple HomeKit, whereas the Sengled WiFi light bulbs, unfortunately, don’t support this function yet.

Geofencing – Philips Hue also supports the geofencing feature which turns on and off your lights based on your smartphone’s GPS location.

While Segnled does also support this function, it does so via the IFTTT software, meaning that it’s already built into the Philips Hue app and can be accessed quicker.

Microsoft Cortana – While both smart bulbs support Google Assistant & Alexa, Philip Hue takes it a step further by also allowing integration with the Microsoft Cortana app as well.

Beam Angle – There is a big difference when it comes to the beam angle of both models.

Sengled offers an impressive 240 degrees vs. Philips Hue’s 160 degrees.

This makes it easier for Sengled to fill up even more space with subdued light, while Philips Hue can offer a brighter and more concentrated brightness in smaller spaces.

Bulb Base – Philips Hue comes with far more bulb base options such as E26, E12, BR30, GU10, & PAR16, while Sengled is only compatible with the basic E26 setup.
