At the beginning of September, Philips Hue introduced the new Hue Secure Contact Sensor, which can now be ordered in the manufacturer’s online shop. For 39.99 euros you get a sensor in white or black, in a double pack you pay 69.99 euros. How to connect the contact sensor to the Hue Bridge The contact sensor is ready for use immediately after unpacking.
In June, Philips Hue introduced two new variants of the Surimu LED panel. After there were previously only two large ceiling lights, the Hue Surimu is now also available as a square variant with an edge length of 30 centimetres for 229.99 euros and as a round variant with a diameter of 39.5 centimetres for 239.99 euros.
The Philips Hue Aurelle has been with us for several years now. The panel light has always been available in four different shapes, and now you also have the choice between two different colours. After the Hue Aurelle was previously only available with a white frame, there is now also a black version to choose from.
Last week I already gave you the first information about the Phoscon Hive from Dresden-Elektronik. In the meantime, I have been able to try out the small battery-operated table lamp myself and am particularly impressed by the operating concept. Of course I would like to share my impressions with you. The Phoscon Hive can be bought directly from Amazon in many countries and costs 59.95 euros there.
A week’s holiday in the Netherlands is over, back in the office a package from Philips Hue is already waiting for me. Included in it: The two new variants of the E14 chandelier bulb, which is now available not only as White, but also as White Ambiance and White and Color Ambiance.
A fortnight ago, the Philips Hue Tap Dial was released with the new mini mount. While nothing has changed on the switch itself, you get to enjoy a new mount. While the previous mounting plate with its dimensions of just under 8 x 8 centimetres (in Europe) fit on common empty flush-mounted boxes, the new alternative is limited to a small mini mount with a diameter of only 4.8 centimetres.
Already in the summer of last year, Philips Hue introduced another model under the name “Hue Go”. A portable table lamp was supposed to appear in late summer 2022. Unfortunately, nothing came of it, at least in Europe. Today there is good news: The portable table lamp Philips Hue Go Portable is now available in Germany and other European countries.
In spring 2020, Philips Hue introduced the outdoor wall light Resonate. It throws a triangular cone of light downwards and upwards onto the wall, but does without two separately controllable LEDs. Now Philips Hue has additionally neutered the Resonate and also offers it as a variant with a light beam directed only downwards.
Some time ago, I introduced you to the large Philips Hue Enrave. The ceiling light with White Ambiance technology does a very good job in the children’s room. Today I take a look at the small model of the Hue Enrave with a diameter of only 26.1 centimetres. Not without reason, because the small ceiling light is one of the products that will become more expensive from February.
I have already reported several times about the Philips Hue Perifo track system, which was released in summer 2022. While I have already installed the spots in my kitchen, I have not yet tested the Hue Perifo Linear Lightbar. Today we want to change that. The technical data of the 95-centimetre-long lightbar, which can simply be plugged into a Perifo rail, are impressive.
