Soon also directly in the Hue app

I'm currently in a bit of a spring slump when it comes to exciting Hue topics. May and June should definitely be more interesting again. So today I'm taking a look at a question from the community. ManniHue would like to know: Is it possible to use the Hue app to realise that pressing a button on the dimmer switch switches a lamp on and then switches it off again after a set timer time?

How to clean up faster

You may be about to do some digital spring cleaning – and of course Philips Hue should not be forgotten. If you want to clear your rooms of unused scenes, I have a little tip for you.

Community question of the week: Suitable lamp base for the Lightguides No chance of a stylish look

No chance of a stylish look

The Philips Hue Lightguide series was launched just over a year ago – if you can call it that. The Globe and Triangular versions were quickly discontinued due to quality problems, leaving only the Ellipse. And that's exactly what Hueblog reader Tobi sent me a question about via Instagram: I would like to use a Hue Ellipse as a table lamp.
