Hue Secure: Camera recordings now longer than 15 seconds

Complete event gets captured

In my review of the Philips Hue Secure camera, I realised that video clips lasting a maximum of 15 seconds are recorded as soon as movement is detected. This was not sufficient in many cases and meant that events remained unobserved. Afterwards, Philips Hue even contacted me directly – it was a bug that would be fixed.

That's exactly what happened this week. From now on, the Hue Secure cameras will no longer only record for 15 seconds as soon as motion is detected. Instead, the entire event is now recorded from start to finish.

You can now try this out in the latest version of the Hue app. In my case, an event lasting around one minute was still recorded for around 15 to 20 seconds afterwards, so you really seem to be on the safe side now.

Philips Hue Secure Camera

from $199.99 / €199.99 / £174.99

Let Philips Hue keep an eye on your home for you! Get a crisp, clear 1080p HD live stream, turn on the lights or send an alert to your mobile device when motion is detected, or even trigger a sound alarm with a tap in the Hue app. This wired home security camera is easy to mount and install in any home.

I tested this with the wired Hue Secure camera. The behaviour with the wireless camera should be similar, but I haven't been able to try it out yet. I hope to be able to gather my first impressions for you in the coming week at the latest.

By the way, yesterday I was at the Signify headquarters in Eindhoven and was asked which functions I would most like to see on the camera. Deactivating or activating the secure function via geofencing is right at the top of my list. How does it look for you?
