Some time ago it was already on the net, now I can announce that it has arrived. The Innr RCL 110 is now in stock at Amazon and can be ordered for 64.99 euros.RCL stands for Round Ceiling Light, so it should be clear what it’s all about. In this ceiling light, the bulb is permanently integrated and cannot be replaced.
Normally, converting a floor lamp is not particularly difficult: you unscrew the old bulbs and insert Philips Hue lamps. This is done within a few seconds and works perfectly. But what if you cannot simply remove the bulbs from the floor lamp, for example because they are permanently installed or have a certain form factor?
Voice control with Siri has become even better with the latest updates from Apple. From now on, as with Google Assistant, multiple commands are possible with one voice command. For a short time now, several commands can simply be combined with an “and”. So you can say, for example: Hey Siri, switch on the light in the living room and in the kitchen.
In the meanwhile, there are numerous manufacturers and suppliers who, thanks to the ZigBee standard, bring lamps onto the market that can be coupled relatively easily with the Philips Hue Bridge. This is also the case with the smart lamps from Hornbach, which are marketed under the name Flair Viyu. In November, three new light bulbs came onto the market, including a filament bulb.
By now, the Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip has been on the market for about two months and, in principle, you should already be well informed about the light strip. Hopefully soon there will be even more possibilities, after all, Philips Hue is looking for a way to make the Gradient Lightstrip shine in multiple colors via the Hue app.
Don’t you store the Hue Bridge somewhere deep in the cupboard or hide it somewhere else? If you are still looking for the perfect place for your control centre, I might have the perfect solution for you. On the 3D printer platform Thingiverse a user presented an interesting mount for the Hue Bridge.
Yesterday I already briefly addressed the topic of Christmas lighting with the DIY project of Hueblog reader Marius, now I would like to intensify it once again. The question of the questions is: Why is there actually no Christmas lighting from Philips Hue? I will certainly not be able to provide you with the answer to this question, because it is hidden in the heads of probably important managers in Eindhoven, where Signify is based.
Hueblog reader Marius sent me some photos of his latest DIY project over the weekend and I was definitely impressed. Today I would like to present you his LED Christmas tree and get your creative vein going a little bit. Until Christmas Eve there is still a little time to be creative yourself.
As you may have seen in the leaflet of your supermarket, Lidl is now selling smart lighting products. Thanks to the ZigBee wireless standard, these should also be able to be connected to the Hue Bridge without any problems, but especially with one of the most interesting products this does not seem to work: The USB power strip from Silvercrest did not want to couple with my Philips Hue Bridge despite all efforts.
It is something we have probably all been waiting for. It is something that will solve a problem that we have been angry about for years. It’s about the classic light switch on the wall, which we have so far been able to combat at best with a Friends of Hue switch.
