In our survey with more than 1,000 participants, Hue Essentials came in third place, making it one of the most popular applications for the smart lighting system. Hue Essentials was placed behind the official Philips Hue App and iConnectHue.
Yesterday I showed you an unboxing of the first generation Philips Hue Starter Set – and today there is a little note about the first generation Hue Bridge.
Sometimes I have really weird ideas. This weekend, I ordered a first generation Philips Hue starter set. More than seven years old, equipped with the first generation bridge. There are also three colourful lamps, which can only display some colours poorly. With a maximum of 600 lumens they are about 25 percent darker than their successors.
Update on April 29th: The new hexagons can now be pre-ordered via the Nanoleaf website. Nine panels including controller and power supply cost 179.99 euros. I have been fascinated by the smart lighting products from Nanoleaf for several years now. After triangles and squares, the next step is now being taken: Hexagons are in the starting blocks.
A few weeks ago, I presented the Twinkly Festoon Lights to you. We already had a lot of fun with the smart lights last winter – now they serve as a smart garland with app control. They consist of 20 little bulbs with 16 million colors. And since there is no such thing from Philips Hue up to now, I’m just cheating on this garden installation.
Do you know this problem as well? At home, you sit at your desk or anywhere else with your MacBook and you want to control the light. Of course you could stand up and use the dimmer switch or just use Siri on your Mac. But if you have your fingers on the trackpad anyway, you could also control the light on your Mac.
In the past weeks and months I’ve been reporting on new and innovative products from Innr again and again, most recently I took a look at the Puck Lights. But what about the standard products we find in every Hue system? This is exactly what this article is about.
Remember the Versteckdose? The innovative Friends of Hue switch offers much more than the competition. After all, it replaces a classic light switch with a socket. The Friends of Hue switch can be slid over the socket on the frame so you only see it when you need it.
Since last summer, Philips Hue has also been offering lamps with additional Bluetooth connectivity. This is interesting for beginners and owners of the Hue Go. Hue Bluetooth products are also an interesting solution for the children’s room.
