The Philips Hue Play Lightbar may have been around for a few years, but it is still one of Philips Hue’s bestsellers. No wonder, because the compact mood light can be flexibly placed, screwed on or glued on.
However, Philips Hue does not seem to be running smoothly at the moment, even in the Hueblog community there have been repeated reports about beeping Play Lightbars. Especially with white light settings, which are particularly energy-hungry, a noise is perceptible for many users.
However, how many are there actually? I myself have two Play Lightbars in use and have not noticed any problems so far. How does it look for you?
Support is aware of the issue
Apparently, Philips Hue has already been informed about the situation, at least their support team has provided the relevant information. A Hueblog reader was told the following:
“At the moment Play Lightbars are known to make noise, we are analysing the case, which means we have to develop a new product, redesign and manufacture it, which may take a few months.”
A typical support statement, which unfortunately I don’t have any further details on at the moment. But if there is any news, I will definitely get back to you.
