Philips Adds Huawei as an IoT Partner for Hue Smart Bulbs

Philips Lighting expanded its Internet of Things (IoT) universe for the home, making its Hue smart bulbs compatible with an IoT system provided by Chinese information technology networking giant Huawei. By combining forces, users can control Hue smart lamps using Huawei’s OceanConnect system. They can also program Hue lights to respond to or prompt actions in other things around the house controlled by OceanConnect. But in order to do so, users will have to find a service provider such as a telecoms company. That’s because Huawei positions OceanConnect as a service offering for telcos and ISPs to resell. In the IoT, scores of billions of devices are expected to tie into the Internet and talk to one another in a manner that makes them more useful and efficient, and that helps gather reams of useful data. The Philips-Huawei alliance is the latest example of an IT company pairing up with a lighting company to chase smart lighting opportunities.
