There are some interesting developments around the portable table lamp Philips Hue Go. Only last week, Amazon and Galaxus listed the new model, which is officially supposed to be released in late summer, and allowed pre-orders. However, delivery is unlikely to happen that quickly. As I have learned from several retailers, the new Philips Hue Go portable table lamp will not be launched until January 2023.
Perhaps you have already noticed: Today is the longest day of the year. It’s also clear that the days are getting shorter again and lighting is needed on the terrace or balcony in the evening. Philips Hue has presented a potential candidate today: The portable table lamp from the Hue Go series.
In late summer 2022, Philips Hue will launch its first own track system. Various starter sets starting at 649.99 euros can be configured with additional light sources and accessories so that you can create your very own lighting experience. Even though I have not yet been able to install the Perifo system in my home, I have already been able to gather the first impressions for you.
Finally the time has come: Philips Hue has introduced new products. As of today, the first new light sources and also a new switch are already available, and more new products are to be launched by late summer. And as I can already announce: What Philips Hue has shown today will not be all for the year 2022.
Actually, it was supposed to be released in April, but after a few days of delay, it is finally here: the firmware update for the Philips Hue Play Lightbar that many users have been eagerly awaiting. With the new software, the sometimes occurring annoying noises should be a thing of the past.
Beeping Philips Hue products are a rarity, but with the sheer number of products sold, it is noticeable. Recently, it was mainly the Play Lightbars that caused problems. Already a few weeks ago, Philips Hue admitted to this error, which can cause a beeping sound with the Play Lightbars, especially with very bright light settings.
In January, Philips Hue introduced the new wall lamp Inara for outdoor use. Okay, the model is not that new, because it has been available in the US for quite some time. For the launch in Germany and Europe, however, Philips Hue has equipped its wall lamp in classic lantern shape with an equally classic Hue Filament in Edison shape.
Actually, Philips Hue had a great idea with the launch of the Play Lightbar several years ago: The power supply is equipped with three slots to be able to operate several Lightbars at one socket. The Hue Sync Box, the Lightstrip Plus, the Gradient Lightstip and the Signe table lamp as well as the Hue Iris and Hue Bloom also use the same connection.
You may have come across the Danish manufacturer Light Solutions before, for example with the rich accessories for the fourth generation Hue Lightstrip Plus. Now there is another accessory, a switch with Hue-compatible technology. More precisely, the new Lightbee Zigbee Switch works like a Friends of Hue switch. However, there are some differences that warrant a small article.
The Philips Hue Play Lightbar may have been around for a few years, but it is still one of Philips Hue’s bestsellers. No wonder, because the compact mood light can be flexibly placed, screwed on or glued on. However, Philips Hue does not seem to be running smoothly at the moment, even in the Hueblog community there have been repeated reports about beeping Play Lightbars.
