Just under a week ago, Philips Hue launched Dynamic Scenes. In the current version of the Hue app, you only have to select a scene from the Hue light scenes gallery to make a play button visible with which the dynamic scene can be started.
So far, however, the change between the different colours is so slow that some users even think that the dynamic scenes do not work properly at all. With one of the upcoming updates, however, Philips Hue will make it possible to adjust the speed.
“We have deliberately not chosen the standard so that it is like a disco. But in the near future you will be able to set that too, if you want,” reveals Hue creator George Yianni. In addition to the free adjustment of the speed, there is another development site around the dynamic scenes: soon, the feature will also work with self-created scenes.
“The custom scenes will even come first, the speed adjustment will come shortly after,” says George Yianni, who does not yet want to commit to a concrete timetable. “All of that will come in the autumn, in the next few months. We have to beta test the new features first and if everything is good enough, then we’ll roll out the update.”
After that, there will also be the next job directly, because in the future it should also be possible to activate the dynamic scenes via automation or by pressing a button on a Hue switch. On the other hand, we will definitely have to do without the integration of White Ambiance lamps in the dynamic scenes: “We tried it out, but you don’t see the effect there very much. That confused people more than it inspired them.
