It has been more than a year since Philips Hue introduced dynamic scenes. Since the launch in September 2021, numerous functions have been added, such as speed adjustment or, most recently, automatic activation.
As I have now learned, there should soon be another improvement that actually also has major implications for practice. In future, it will be possible to exclude lamps that are not used for mood lighting but for actual lighting from the colour change of a dynamic scene.
Up to now, colour lamps have always changed colour in dynamic scenes.
What at first sounds like a relatively complicated and awkward thing is said to have been solved quite simply by Philips Hue: All lamps that are placed on the colour wheel for white tones in the scene keep their setting. Only the lamps that are set to a coloured shade become part of the dynamic.
What does this look like in practice? You create a scene, for example for reading. The reading light is set to a white tone, the other mood lights in the room to the desired colours. When the dynamic scene is started, only the mood lights change colour, while the reading light keeps the desired white tone.
Until now, only White or White Ambiance lamps did not participate in the dynamic scene. Up to now, it has not been possible to prevent the colour change of colour lamps. Unfortunately, I do not know when exactly Philips Hue will release the new function.
