Even before the new releases for autumn are announced at the end of the month, Philips Hue has fulfilled the promises from the summer. Back in June, they had announced that motion sensors would retain more options. This update is now apparently being rolled out. Several people have already been able to confirm to me that the new functions are unlocked for them. So a look at the Hue app could be worthwhile for you, too.
In the best case, you will see a small blue dot next to the settings at the bottom of the navigation. This little hint will lead you to the accessories and then to your motion sensor. There, Philips Hue has the following notice for you:
“You'll now have up to 10 time slots, access to the Natural light scene and more. The new time slots below are set to default. Edit them, add new ones or tap here to see your current settings. “
If your motion sensor, whether the white model for indoors or the black model for outdoors, does not yet offer this new option, it is probably just a matter of a little patience.
At the same time, a little caution is advised, the new settings are probably not yet compatible with the already existing Hue Labs functions such as “Do not disturb my scene”.
