Just before Christmas, Philips Hue introduced a new scene: Natural Light. It automatically switches between individual scenes over a 24-hour period to give you the most appropriate light for the time of day. Philips Hue writes: “Start with bright, cool tones to energise you in the morning, and end the day with a warmer, golden hue to help you relax in the evening.”
With the update of the Philips Hue app to version 4.36, there are now innovations for the function for the first time. From now on, you can activate the scene via automation. For example, at a fixed time or when you come home. Natural Light is also compatible with the timer function in the automation area.
What Natural Light can't do yet
Unfortunately, there are still some details that urgently need to be improved. Here are some points that unfortunately still do not work:
- Activate natural light with a switch (currently only with Hue Tap Dial).
- Natural light for individual lamps in a room
- Dependence on the position of the sun
But as we all know: The year is still long. For sure, Philips Hue will delight us with one or the other update this year…
