Hueblog: Firmware update prepares Hue lamps for dynamic scenes

Firmware update prepares Hue lamps for dynamic scenes

New feature likely to be unlocked soon

If you opened the Software Update section in the Hue app this week, you may have wondered about the large amount of updates available. Signify has not yet commented on the details of the new firmware in the release notes, but I can provide you with more information.

Philips Hue is laying the foundation for dynamic scenes with the current firmware update for virtually all light bulbs and sockets. As we have already learned, these are not controlled by the bridge, but are stored and started directly on the lamps. This improves the performance in the ZigBee network enormously.

The dynamic scenes will be available on all coloured lamps that are equipped with at least firmware 1.88.1. White and warm white lamps have also been provided with a new firmware, even if they do not support the dynamic scenes. Presumably, however, with the new firmware they are able to forward the necessary commands via the ZigBee network.

So it probably won't be long before the dynamic scenes will be available in the Hue app. The kick-off should be in September at the latest, when the new Gradient products come onto the market. According to my information, the new products will be available for order from 1st of September.
