Last week, Philips Hue released a firmware update for the Hue Bridge, which should have automatically installed on your system by now. It revolves around the software version 1962097030.
Among other things, it fixes the problem where some users were unable to connect to Apple Home via HomeKit. As we have now found out, HomeKit is much more stable than the new Matter. In this case, however, pairing must be done via the Home app and by scanning the HomeKit code on the underside of the Hue Bridge. Some users have probably experienced problems here.
If you are already using Matter and everything is running smoothly, there is more good news: The still fairly new Hue Secure contact sensor now also works with Matter. Previously, it was not “handed over”.
As usual, the firmware update also improves the performance and reliability of the system.
