It’s lit

Razer has spent the last few years building out its Chroma lighting system to a huge array of products, from keyboards to mice to controllers to headphones to mouse pads to LED strips for custom desktop builds to an honest-to-god mug holder, all of which can be synced perfectly in time to your gaming PC. But what about the rest of your house?

At CES 2018, Razer is announcing a partnership with Philips Hue’s smart lighting that lets users sync any color-capable Hue light product with Razer Chroma devices. To get things rolling, you’ll need a few things in place: a Philips Hue V2 bridge, Philips Hue color-capable lights, the latest Philips Hue app, and a PC with Razer’s Synapse 3 software installed. And for the full effect, you’ll probably want some Razer Chroma-equipped gear, too.

Once you have that all set up, you’ll need to wait for the tomorrow’s software update that enables the syncing to go through, and you’ll be able to spread the joy of perfectly synced Razer-green lighting to your entire home.

Just imagine: not just your keyboard lighting up to notify you of your ultimate ability being ready in Overwatch, but your entire living room. Or on the flip side, you’ll be able to have your gaming rig glow a nice sunset orange at night to help your sleep cycle. The possibilities are truly endless.
