You can do a lot with the Philips Hue LightStrip. Hueblog reader Beat mounted the light strip behind his Samsung TV.

Even if this is not a real replacement for Ambilight, this idea should be more than interesting for many users. After all, a television, possibly still mounted directly on the wall with a bracket, is perfect for indirect wall lighting. And what could be more suitable than a Philips Hue LightStrip Plus?

How exactly can the LivingColors remote control be connected to Hue? We will explain.

The LivingColors Iris is a great smart product and often available at a low price. In this article I’ve already explained how to integrate the lamp into Hue. However, the included remote control loses its functionality when doing so. To prevent the remote control from becoming completely useless, you can train it again.

How can the "cosy candlelight" scene known from the Philips Hue Go be used with other lamps? We will show you.

The Philips Hue Go is a great mood light. The name “Hue Go” is no accident, because the light has a rechargeable battery and can be used on the go – in the park, in the garden, on the beach etc. On the back of the Hue Go is a button which allows for switching between five predefined light effects while on the move.

Formula: Stop Philips Hue motion detector from interfering with manually switched scenes The Philips Hue motion detector is a fine thing. But there are moments when it should remain inactive.

The Philips Hue motion detector is a fine thing. But there are moments when it should remain inactive.

In my opinion, the Philips Hue motion detector makes a lot of sense, especially in passageways. Instead of switching the light on and off again shortly afterwards, you simply let it do it automatically. But there are also many users who have installed the motion detector in their living room, dining room or kitchen.

This small guide is intended for Apple users who use HomeKit. I would like to explain what the HomeKit control centre is and how it works.

I myself like using HomeKit very much – and there are quite a few accessories that are supported by HomeKit. Philipe Hue of course, LIFX, Elgato products and many more. These devices can be bundled and controlled in the Home app. But if you want to access the devices remotely, you will have to set up a so-called control center.

How do you connect old LivingColors with Hue? We'll explain advantages and downsides.

In this little guide, I would like to explain how to connect Philips LivingColors with Hue. I also have two of these lovely lamps at home and managed to pair them with my Hue Bridge for usage in several scenes.

What can you do if lamps do not react? We have a small guide for you.

A few months ago I had serious problems with my Hue system. I decided to do a complete reset after I was not able to register any new lights on the bridge. After that, unfortunately, nothing worked anymore. I was only able to control my lamps by light switch – if available.

Philips Hue dimmer switch does not respond: Soft reset is a solution The Philips Hue dimmer switch is one of the most popular accessory products in the Hue universe. But what if it doesn't react and doesn't switch lamps anymore? A soft reset often helps.

The Philips Hue dimmer switch is one of the most popular accessory products in the Hue universe. But what if it doesn't react and doesn't switch lamps anymore? A soft reset often helps.

The Philips Hue dimmer switch is a real all-rounder and I’ve been thinking about launching an initiative to get the little remote control into every room. The dimmer switch always cuts a fine figure, whether on the living room table, the fridge, embedded in the bedside table or even as a replacement for the light switch on the wall.

In my household, here are now two copies of the Hue Bridge in use. In this guide I would like to tell you what is especially important for a second Hue Bridge.

Normally you can get along with a single Hue Bridge easily. But at a certain point a Hue Bridge reaches its limits: officially, Philips states 50 connected lamps as maximum for a bridge, but theoretically, up to 63 lamps can be connected to a bridge. But there are still some limitations in other places that I have already explained in detail in an article about the Hue motion sensor.

I would not want to miss this small accessory in my Hue world. Many things are possible with the Philips Hue Wireless Dimming Switch.

It looks a bit inconspicious, the dimming switch for Philips Hue. A small white plastic piece with four buttons and an even bigger plastic holder. Not really of great design and high quality, but it somehow fits in everywhere. At the moment, I have five switches in use and take this as an opportunity to explain to you what you can do with the Philips Hue Wireless Dimming Switch.
