Unboxing: The new Philips Hue Centris finally comes with a thought

Assembly also possible without helping hands

The new Philips Hue Centris, which is available in a total of four different configurations from €279.99 to €449.99, has already been properly discussed. One thing is clear: Optically, the mixture of spots and fixed LED module is certainly not everyone’s cup of tea. Whether you like one of the four models or not, I can’t judge at this point.

But what I can judge very well are some other details. For example, it is praiseworthy to note that Signify now does without plastic in the packaging of its Philips Hue products – only the small Allen key was still packed in a bag.

Hue Centris allows easy mounting on the ceiling

I also immediately noticed that the Philips Hue Centris should be much easier to install than previous Hue ceiling lights. Here I reluctantly think back to my Aurelle panel, where mounting it on the ceiling was a cramp, even with two people.

With the Philips Hue Centris, you can completely separate the bracket from the lamp, screw it on, and wire it in a relaxed manner before you hook the Centris in with a carabiner and then connect it to the power with a plug. I wouldn’t have thought that something like this could ever become reality. Please do not do anything else from now on!

Before I finally attach the Cross model with its three LEDs, each with 350 lumens and the permanently integrated LED module with 1,800 lumens, I will give you some more impressions of the ceiling light in the following video in german language. Thanks also to, who were able to provide me with the Centris at a relatively low price.

In den letzten Jahren habe ich mich zu einem echten Experten in Sachen Hue & HomeKit entwickelt. Mittlerweile habe ich über 50 Lampen und zahlreiche Schalter im Einsatz. In meinem kleinen Blog teile ich meine Erfahrungen gerne mit euch.
