Last year, Philips Hue already announced the new “Natural Light” feature. After a bit of a false start in the summer, the new feature is finally available with the release of version 4.32 of the Philips Hue app. I would like to briefly introduce you to what you can expect.
This is how Philips Hue explains its new feature
Natural light uses different shades of warm-to-cool white light that are designed to help you stay productive and feel supported in your overall wellbeing. Your lights will automatically transit throughout the day: start with bright, cool tones to energise your mornings and end with a warm, golden glow to help you relax as the sun goes down.
These are the requirements for Natural Light
To use Natural Light in your Smart Home, you need the Hue Bridge, the latest version of the app and at least one White Ambiance or White and Color Ambiance bulb in the room you want to use it in.
In this room, add a new scene and open the Hue Light Scene Gallery. There you will find the new “Natural Light” scene, which you simply add. As soon as the scene is activated, the light is dynamically controlled throughout the day.
These settings are available
Philips Hue has created its own schedule for Natural Light, but you can customise it. The individual blocks can be adjusted in their length, and the brightness can also be freely adjusted according to your wishes.
The only important thing is that each period must be at least 30 minutes long. If the lamps are switched on, they begin to slowly change their light colour one minute before the next period.
