If you do have the Hue lightning system, you can download the Syfy Sync app, and sync your Hue lights to the episodes of 12 Monkeys, where the lighting will change at specific moments in the show. This isn't new for Syfy, as they did it with Sharknado 2, too. The app gets connected to your Hue bridge, and listens to your current playing program. Once it hits a particular moment in the show, such as extreme weather or violence, Syfy SYnc will change the color and intensity of the Hue lights.

12 Monkeys airs on Syfy in the US on Friday, January 16, 2015 at 9PM ET.
