New update available in the App Store

Philips Hue has claimed the launch of the new Gradient products all to itself. What do I mean by that? The APIs and tools necessary for developers were only released after the actual market launch. This explains why the initial integration with Hue Essentials did not necessarily turn out to be great and iConnectHue can only now come up with the corresponding update.

Function is well hidden

In August, the timers returned to the Philips Hue app, but one important function was missing until now: You could switch lamps on or off and activate scenes after the timer had expired, but you could not make the lamps flash. This is now possible again. To use the function, you must first create a timer – this can be done in the Automation area.

New setting is well hidden

Personally, I still don’t really like the look of Hue Essentials (Apple/Android), but that is ultimately a matter of personal taste. What is clear is that the app offers numerous functions that are not available in the Hue app. With the update to version 1.17.0, however, a function is now added that was originally introduced with the Hue app: You can colour gradient products with colour gradients.

For a little more than a month now, Philips Hue has been offering the possibility to freely select three colours for gradient products and to create automatically generated colour gradients based on this.

Improvements for dynamic scenes and automations

Since today, version 4.7 of the Philips Hue app is available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. As already announced by me, the dynamic scenes learn a lot with the update and work not only with the preset scenes, but also with self-created ones. Of course, this offers even more possibilities, even if the setting for adjusting the speed has unfortunately not yet been made available with this update.
