In the past few days, I have received a lot of questions about the Philips Hue Ambiance Gradient Lightstrip. Everything revolved around whether the new lightstrip can also be mounted on the underside of the TV to extend the “Ambilight” to four sides in combination with the Hue Play HDMI Sync Box and the Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip.
First of all: this is not a problem. A few days after the launch of the new products, however, not everything is running smoothly yet, both the Ambiance Gradient Lightstrip and the Hue Gradient Signe do not yet display all colours correctly in combination with Hue Sync. As far as I am correctly informed, this error is already known at Philips Hue and should be fixed with the next app update.
How to place the Ambiance Gradient Light Strip
Even though not all translations are finished in the app, I find the possibilities of placement in an entertainment area very successful. You can not only determine the position in the room, but also the orientation.
For example, you can rotate the lightstrip horizontally or vertically and also determine whether the power connection is on the right or left side. You can see the menu in the following two screenshots:
When used with Hue Entertainment, the Ambiance Gradient Light Strip is divided into three segments. Exciting: If you lengthen or shorten the lightstrip, the three segments are adjusted to the new length.
