Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box Upgrade your Hue lighting system
The Sync Box monitors your video signal to control your Hue lights

The neat box boasts four HDMI ports so you can connect different devices.

Philips was one of the very first companies to support Apple’s HomeKit software, with its Hue range of smart lights a few years ago. And if you’re already using some of the HomeKitcompatible Hue lights at home, you can jazz up your entertainment system even more with its new Play HDMI Sync Box.

The Sync Box is designed to work with devices, such as an Apple TV, set-top box or games console, that connect to your TV via an HDMI cable. Instead of plugging your devices directly into your TV, you can connect them to the Sync Box, then connect the Sync Box to your TV. The Sync Box has four HDMI input ports, so you’ve got plenty of room to plug in all your devices, along with the single HDMI output that connects the Sync Box to your TV.
