0. You will need the Philips Hue physical hardware: the bridge and bulbs.
1. After installing Ambieye it will try to find your bulbs via or ask you for the Bridge IP.
2. When the bridge is found, you see the "press the link button" message - press the middle button on the white bridge to authenticate the app.
3. Control your lights from any within the same Wifi network.

No further setup necessary. The application dims all the lights on and off with a single mouse click, the dynamic scenes work as long as the app is open.
