I was able to draw your attention to this upcoming innovation back in September. Now Philips Hue has apparently started to slowly roll out the new functions. I have discovered the first comments from the community both on social networks and here in the comments.
Specifically, it's about the Hue Smart Button and the Hue Dimmer Switch, both of which have been available on the market for some time. If you have already received the update, the following message will appear in the switch settings in the Hue app:
Add up to 10 time slots in Time-based mode, 10 scenes in Scene cycle mode and add the Natural light scene.
This should be pretty self-explanatory. If the previous five scenes weren't enough for you, you can now add up to ten scenes to the switch.
Unfortunately, the new options have not yet been activated for me. However, as far as I understand it correctly, the update also allows you to assign fewer than five scenes to a switch, which I personally find even more interesting. Previously, this was only possible with third-party apps.
If the new functions for the Hue dimmer switch and the Hue Smart Button have already been activated in your app, you are welcome to leave brief feedback in the comments.
