Syfy's 12 Monkeys to sync up with your Hue lighting system

If you own some Philips Hue light bulbs, and plan to watch Syfy's 12 Monkeys series when it premieres next month, then you're in for a special treat. Using the Syfy Sync app, Hue owners will be able to sync their lights with episodes of 12 Monkeys, with the lighting changing at key moments in the program.

Syfy did the same thing with Hue lights during Sharknado 2. The app is connected to your Hue bridge, and listens to your current program. During particular scenes, such as extreme weather, or intense violence, Syfy Sync will change the color and intensity of your bulbs.

Syfy's 12 Monkeys will premiere in the U.S. on Friday, January 16, 2015 at 9pm ET. You can download the SyFy Sync app from the Google Play Store now.
