Colour Picker gets pimped out for colour gradients

We still have to be patient, but from 14 September, the new Ambiance Gradient Lightstrip and the Gradient Signe will officially go on sale. The Gradient Light Tube will follow at the end of October. With the Play Gradient Lightstrip, a product with a colour gradient has already been available for some time.

Now the question is: How exactly will you be able to create your own multi-coloured scenes? This is exactly the question I would like to answer today.


Philips Hue will realise the control of the different segments via the familiar Colour Picker. There, the gradient lamps are displayed like a lamp group, the Ambiance Gradient Light Strip for example with its five adjustable zones as an icon with a “5”.

With a tap of the finger, you can open the “group” and then pull out individual segments to move them freely on the Colour Picker. And to make the colour gradient perfect, Philips Hue has come up with something.

So the Ambiance Gradient Lightstrip actually consists of even more individual segments. These are then used to create a gradient between two adjacent colours. This is visualised in the Hue app in the Colour Picker by a small line between the individual points. Unfortunately, I don’t have any images to show you yet.

But it will definitely be possible to create your own colour gradients according to your personal wishes – so you have even more options than just using the supplied scenes from Philips Hue. It is expected that this new feature will be activated with the launch of the Gradient Signe and the new light strip around the middle of the month.
