In my search for new ZigBee products that can be connected with the Philips Hue Bridge, I came across a Giderwel light strip a few days ago.

Last week, the colleagues from Lampenwelt.de approached me and offered me to try a portable LED light with rechargeable battery.

Today I want to ask a simple question and discuss it with you: How do you illuminate your kitchen? The worktop, to be precise. In my home I use a Philips Hue LightStrip Plus for this purpose, which is mounted in a small profile. I introduced it to you a few years ago.
The smart brand Tint from Müller-Licht should be known to you through the offers at German discounter Aldi. A few weeks ago, I presented the new outdoor collection of the manufacturer from Northern Germany. Still, you have to be patient for a first review. Until then, we’ll pass the time with Tint Armaro.
