A quick article regarding Berlin: During the IFA I was able to take a closer look at the new Philips Hue Smart Button.

Yesterday, I already forwarded some information about the Philips Hue Smart Button. Nevertheless, I didn’t miss the opportunity to pay a visit to the colleagues from Signify, who invited us to a hotel suite away from the IFA. The result is the following small video of the new Philips Hue Smart Button which will be on sale for 19.99 Euro during October.

We will continue with new releases. Now it is the Philips Hue Smart Plug’s turn.

Of course its low price plays a role but the Osram Smart Plug is by far the best-selling Hue-compatible product, there is little doubt about that. After looking at the matter long enough, Signify now offers its own solution: the Philips Hue Smart Plug. The smart plug with ZigBee and Bluetooth can now be ordered for 29.99 Euro and is available in most European countries, with the exception of Italy and Switzerland.

Brighter, more enduring and versatile: the second generation of Philips Hue Go has a lot to offer.

The Philips Hue Go is the only battery-powered lamp from Signify. And that’s not likely to change in the near future, but we can look forward to an exciting update. The second generation Philips Hue Go, which is planned for October, has a lot going for it. One of the main points of criticism of the first generation was certainly the fact that you could only access a few defined scenes at the push of a button away from your home ZigBee network.

You've never heard of Lutron Aurora? Then let us bring you up to speed.

A few weeks ago, we introduced you to the Lutron Aurora. The innovative switch is simply mounted over the light switch and prevents it from being activated. A great idea? Absolutely. Unfortunately with a catch: The Lutron Aurora is intended for the American market and only fits on American toggle switches.

The first E14 candle lamp is not just a small illuminant but in contrast to the competition it can display different colours and colour gradients.

Hueblog-reader Maik impressed me with some photos from his house. Especially his ceiling light built with LightStrips is worth a look.

I still have some exciting reader projects in my mailbox, including a great bathroom installation by Hueblog reader Andy. But today we want to start with a great ceiling light which Maik presented to me in numerous photos. And I would say that we first let pictures speak for themselves before we take care of the details.

Firmware update improves performance of Hue Entertainment A new firmware update is available for the Hue Bridge’s 2nd generation.

A new firmware update is available for the Hue Bridge’s 2nd generation.

So far, Hue Entertainment and Hue Sync have not really taken off; for example, there is still no possibility to add Ambilight-like lighting effects without a computer. Apparently, Signify does not want to leave the technology behind – as a recent update of the Hue Bridge shows. The firmware version 1933144020, released two days ago, improves the performance of Hue Entertainment when all the lamps in use are within direct radio range of the Hue Bridge.

First look at the Versteckdose: upgrade for the classic light switch You've already learned a lot about the Versteckdose. Now I have had a chance to try it for myself.

You've already learned a lot about the Versteckdose. Now I have had a chance to try it for myself.

It is a well-known problem: classic light switches and Philips Hue. It is best to keep them on all the time but that really doesn’t always work. The Versteckdose (engl. “hidden socket”) wants to provide a solution for this problem – and offers a big advantage compared to simply removing the classic light switch: The existing cables are simply used for a socket outlet.
