Simply operate your lights

Hands full? Ask Google Assistant to switch on the light, dim or brighten the lights or change colours.

  • “Hey Google, switch on the light.”
  • “OK Google, dim the light in the bedroom.”
  • “Hey Google, change the lights to green.”
  • “OK Google, are the lights in the kitchen off?”

Scenes with voice control

You can also set your custom lighting scenes with the Google Assistant. To do this, you first need to sync your lights by saying: “OK Google, sync my lights”. Then ask for the scenes as configured in your Hue or SmartThings app:

  • “OK Google, turn on ‘Romantic Night’ in the living room”
  • “Hey Google, turn on ‘Concentrate’ in the office”

Quick answers
Can I control the Innr lights with the Apple HomeKit or Siri, just like Hue lamps?

No, Apple does not allow you to control non-Philips lamps with the HomeKit via the Hue bridge.
You can control Innr lighting with the Hue app, remote, and sensors.

Is it possible to update the firmware for Innr lamps using Hue bridge?

No, an update of the firmware of the Innr lamps can’t be performed using the Hue bridge. It can be done using our Bridge, but it has never been necessary to perform a firmware update. All Innr lamps have the latest firmware that has been approved and certified by the Zigbee Alliance. In addition to the official Zigbee certification, we thoroughly test our Zigbee firmware before we make our products available for sale. In short, there is no need for a firmware update.
