It’s 2018. It’s pretty much 9 days into 2018, to be more specific. Going by that, you’ve probably noticed that everything related to PCs has been going RGB for a while. We’ve seen RGB graphics cards, to PSUs to fans, casing and many more internal components of a PC lighting up according to the way we want it to.
That trend also made its way over to peripherals. Razer, for example has spent quite some time developing its proprietary Chroma lighting to implement into a number of peripherals ranging from keyboards, mice, headsets and even RGB mouse mats such as the Razer Firefly.
But Razer doesn’t seem to want to stop there. Why just limit yourself to your PC and its components? Why not something more? Well, for Razer, the perfect opportunity was at CES 2018.
The company announced that they would be partnering up with Phillips to bring RGB to your doorstep, literally. In case you didn’t already know, Philips already has a smart lighting system in place with their Hue lineup of bulbs and accessories.
These can be controlled by Phillips own proprietary app. You can change colors, set mood lighting and even automate the process of turning lights on and off at scheduled times.
The partnership between Razer and Phillips essentially means that almost every aspect of the lighting of your room or house can be configured. Not sure what to expect? Have a look at the video below.
As you can see, things are bound to be quite lit, as it were. Each Phillips Hue bulb can be set to a different color of your choice or you can even sync all of your lights under a single setting via Razer’s Synapse 3 hardware configuration software.
If you’re the type who wants to go all out and create your own lighting scheme, you can do so with Razer’s Chroma Studio software. You can go about setting up different lighting effects across all Synapse-enabled devices and Phillips Hue lights as well. You can also choose from a number of preconfigured lighting effects as well.
In order to set things up, you’ll need a few things. You’ll obviously need some Razer peripherals to start off with. Following that, you’ll need to get yourself a Philips Hue V2 bridge and some Philips Hue color-capable lights. You’ll also need to download both the latest Philips Hue app, and Razer’s Synapse 3 software.
According to Razer, the Chroma and Hue lights will be able to provide a completely immersive gaming experience. This means that if you’re in an intense cut scene and a light flickers in-game, that will actually happen in your room as well. Playing your favorite character in a MOBA and your ultimate ability is ready? Unleash it on your unsuspecting foes and watch your room light up accordingly.
Razer has said that they will be releasing the updated software for Synapse within a couple of days. If you’re planning on setting up an RGB room, then you can go ahead and check out Razer’s download page.
