Hueblog: All gradient lights from Philips Hue at a glance

All gradient lights from Philips Hue at a glance

Create colourful colour gradients

In September 2020, Philips Hue launched the first “Gradient” product on the market. The Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box, which was released in 2019, was followed by the Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip – a light strip for mounting behind the TV to create an Ambilight-like effect in combination with the Sync Box.

Several other gradient lights are now available. In this article, I would like to give you an overview of the current possibilities. If further gradient-capable Philips Hue lights are released at a later date, these will of course be added.

How the gradient effect works with Philips Hue

With Philips Hue, the LED strands are divided into 12.5 centimetre long sections, each of which can display a different colour. A two metre long Ambiance Gradient Lightstrip therefore has 16 individual sections.

However, only three colours can be freely defined in the Hue app: The beginning, middle and end of the light strip. The sections in between are automatically used to create a colour gradient.

Technically, it would even be possible to control each LED individually, but Philips Hue has actively decided against this. In my opinion, the result proves the manufacturer right: with Philips Hue, it is extremely difficult to set a colour sale that doesn't look pretty. With other manufacturers, some of which offer many more options, it is extremely difficult to create a colour sale that actually looks nice.
