As I announced last week, Philips Hue is introducing new functions for the Hue dimmer switch and the Hue Smart Button. After a few users have already been able to try out the new options, they are now being officially rolled out with the update to app version 5.5.0.
The official update description from Philips Hue states: “You can now customize your dimmer switches and smart buttons with up to 10 different time slots, your choice of up to 10 scenes to cycle through, the Natural light scene, and more for even more control. ”
The new options can be found in the settings of the Hue app in the Accessories section. Specifically, there are the following new options.
Philips Hue Dimmer Switch: “Add up to 10 time slots in time-based mode, 10 scenes in scene cycle mode and the ‘Natural light' scene.”
Philips Hue Smart Button: “Add up to 10 time slots in time-based mode, 10 scenes in scene cycle mode and the ‘Natural light' scene and control up to two different rooms.”
