Philips Hue introduced a limited edition of its mood light Iris in early September. So far I have only been able to show you the silver Limited Edition, apart from the new, slightly revised Iris in black and white. That is exactly what I would like to change today.
Just last week I was able to announce that Philips Hue is already offering a modified version of its E14 teardrop bulb in Japan, which was launched as Hue White only earlier this month. Equipped with a comparable E17 base, the Japanese are already enjoying the benefits of a technically much better White Ambiance teardrop bulb, where the colour temperature can be freely adjusted from 2,200 to 6,500 Kelvin.
Just two months ago, Philips Hue unveiled its smallest lamp to date: The Hue E14 Luster. The teardrop-shaped bulb is perfect for compact table lamps that are often found on desks or bedside tables. But it is precisely here that the new release reveals its biggest weakness: as a Hue White model, it offers only a fixed colour temperature.
Watch out! Some Philips Hue outdoor power supplies may be defective and pose a safety hazard. Signify has therefore started a replacement program to replace affected models. In this article I will tell you which details you have to pay attention to. A low number of external power supplies may fail due to water ingress and cause a short circuit.
Although there are still some workarounds if you want to control several Hue Bridges with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, it is often not really fun. Now my YouTube colleague Justin_Tech learned some interesting details in a video interview with Hue inventor George Yianni, which I would like to share with you.
Here in the blog I love to talk about Philips Hue, of course, but there are some lighting ideas that are difficult to realize with ZigBee. The LED panels from Nanoleaf, which have been with me for several years now, are definitely one of them. Starting with the Nanoleaf Aurora, which is now called Nanoleaf Light Panels, to the square Nanoleaf Canvas and the Nanoleaf Shapes Hexagons, which were launched in summer 2020.
It is Prime Day again! And that means all of us Smart Home fans: you can save a lot of money again. Amazon has thousands of offers in store all over the world, including of course some deals around Philips Hue. In this article we want to give you an overview of the deals in many different countries.
After pre-orders were already possible in the past weeks, another new Hue product has been launched this week: The Philips Hue Iris including the Limited Edition. Limited is definitely the right keyword here, because the four special colours are currently anything but easy to get. Anyway, the limited special edition of the mood light is only sold at selected retailers.
Since I first came into contact with an Ambilight TV in 2010, I wouldn’t want to be without the technology. Unfortunately, true Ambilight is only available on Philips TVs – but with the Gradient Lightstrip, Philips Hue now has its own retrofit solution in its portfolio. In this review I would like to tell you about my experiences with the Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip.
A “Nanoleaf Live Event” has been announced on the manufacturer’s website for a few days now, and is scheduled to take place on October 15. There they want to unveil new products – but that’s exactly what we can do right now. In the social network Reddit, the new products have already made an early appearance.
