The Philips Hue wall switch module not only works with classic light switches, but also with pushbuttons. Even though this is not advertised by Philips Hue in a big way, you even benefit from an additional function when using a push button: In addition to activating scenes, the light can also be dimmed by holding the button.
It’s March, and a look at the weather forecast reveals rising temperatures. I could imagine that one or the other of you has a lot planned in the garden – and perhaps Philips Hue should become a part of it. With the low-voltage system, Philips Hue has created an easy way to place smart light sources in the garden in a very uncomplicated, simple and safe way.
It could have all been so nice on Tuesday: Philips Hue introduces the wall switch module in its own store, you buy it and a few days later it is delivered. In virtually all European countries, however, you could buy the new accessory only for a few hours. Currently it is “temporarily out of stock” in Germany, in some other countries it could be ordered again this morning.
Since yesterday, the Philips Hue Wall Switch Module is officially sold in the manufacturer’s online shop. I’d rather not judge the shopping experience now, at the moment the Wall Switch Module is not available to order either as a single or double pack. Unfortunately, I cannot judge to what extent the availability will change for the better in the next few hours or days.
Already in a few weeks, the Philips Hue wall switch module should be on the market, officially Signify wants to launch the new accessory in spring – I assume a launch in March (Europe). Again and again, I read in social networks and comments that the Philips Hue wall switch module is too expensive and you could rather go for cheap alternatives instead.
The Philips Hue Outdoor Lightstrip is a rather flexible thing that can be placed around curves as you like. However, the supplied brackets are only suitable for mounting on a solid surface that can also be screwed into. If you want to lay the Outdoor Light Strip on the ground, you can now print the matching accessories yourself.
Some time ago, my colleague Frederick already told you a few details about the Philips Hue Ensis. At that time, he introduced you to the white version, but in the meantime, the pendant light is also available in black. Reason enough to take another closer look. But where to put the almost 130-centimetre-long lamp, which can shine in different colours at the top and bottom and thus achieve a brightness of up to 6,000 lumens?
Voice control with Siri has become even better with the latest updates from Apple. From now on, as with Google Assistant, multiple commands are possible with one voice command. For a short time now, several commands can simply be combined with an “and”. So you can say, for example: Hey Siri, switch on the light in the living room and in the kitchen.
By now, the Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip has been on the market for about two months and, in principle, you should already be well informed about the light strip. Hopefully soon there will be even more possibilities, after all, Philips Hue is looking for a way to make the Gradient Lightstrip shine in multiple colors via the Hue app.
Last weekend I got an order from the very top. The government demanded that a sensible night light and reading light must be installed in the children’s room. I tried out two different variants and would like to tell you about my experiences. First of all I tried the Nanoleaf Shapes.
