Unboxing: The new Philips Hue Secure floodlight camera

No big surprises

Yesterday, Philips Hue officially launched the Hue Secure Hue Secure Floodlight Camera, which was introduced in late summer 2023. The combination of the Hue Discover floodlight and the Hue Secure camera can now be purchased for 349.99 euros.

I have already received a test device and have arranged to meet my father at the weekend to replace an old, classic floodlight with a motion detector on his patio. In terms of smart home, this will definitely be a significant improvement, and I will report on my experiences during the installation later on.

But first, let’s take a look inside the box of the Hue Secure floodlight camera. There are no big surprises.

As always, Philips Hue has completely dispensed with plastic in the packaging. The camera and the floodlight are each stored in a fabric bag for protection. A very tidy affair.

The camera is the conventional Hue Secure camera without battery. Here you can see it with the protection on the lens and the sensor.

You should not lose this card. You can only add the camera to a Hue account with the code printed on it.

Here you can see the “colossus” in all its beauty. At the bottom of the large wall bracket you will find a magnet for attaching the camera, the power cable for the camera, which is unfortunately not better integrated, and a small safety cable.

What surprises me a little: There is no recess for the safety cable on the underside of the housing. This could have been solved more elegantly.

Mounting on the wall should not be a problem. Firstly, only one bracket is screwed to the wall and the cables are relaxed. The entire structure is then placed on top and fixed in place with two small screws.
