Splash water protection and dimmer switch included

A while ago, I introduced you to the Philips Hue Xamento, the first “colourful” bathroom light from Philips Hue. With a price of up to 259.99 euros, it is certainly not a cheap affair. Today, in cooperation with Click-Licht.de, I would like to introduce you to another new ceiling light for the bathroom, which is aimed at all those who can manage with white light tones in the shower or when brushing their teeth.

The lamps with E27 bases all have White Ambiance technology, the colour temperature can be adjusted from 1,800 to 5,000 Kelvin.

Especially the dynamic scenes and the gradient function are worth mentioning here. However, we have been waiting in vain for one function so far: natural light.

When the Bridge can't find a new lamp

In the past few days I have sorted out some old lamps and sold them on eBay. Several buyers had no idea how to reset the lamps so that the new Bridge would find them immediately – although it is so easy with the dimmer switch. This is how easy it is to reset a Hue lamp I have often explained how to reset a lamp with the dimmer switch.

Watch out: Not all Philips TVs support Hue Ambilight+Hue is not always included

Ambilight+Hue is not always included

In the past few weeks, I have repeatedly received a few enquiries on the subject and I also keep stumbling across it on social networks: The “Ambilight+Hue” function of Philips TVs. In principle, the whole thing works very simply: in the settings of the TV, a connection to the Hue Bridge is first established and then the lamps that are to extend the Ambilight in the room are selected.
