The Philips Hue Go is a portable Bluetooth-enabled smart lamp that changes color. You can control the Philips Hue Go in three ways: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or a button on device itself. I tested out the Philips Hue Go, and it’s a fun decorative light that doesn’t require a lot of setup. But, it’s not quite bright enough to replace a desk lamp. As a smart home reporter, I recognize that Philips Hue’s smart lights are the best in the business. However, I personally don’t use them. My home is equipped with bulbs from Lifx, Koogeek, and TP-Link, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. That’s because Philips Hue’s best bulbs from the past few years don’t connect directly to Wi-Fi. Instead, they connect to a separate device, called the Philips Hue Bridge, which links them to your router. That was an extra setup step I didn’t want to deal with, especially given the limited space and outlets in my 200-square-foot apartment. Philips Hue’s parent brand, Signify, seems to have heard my prayers. Last summer, the company began to roll out a collection of Bluetooth-operated lights that remove Wi-Fi from the process altogether.
