In the past few weeks, I have repeatedly stumbled across a question in social networks. Hueblog reader Sandra has now approached me with the same concern. In an email to me she asks: I have just installed two new Philips Hue Play Lightbars in my home. I put them in an existing room and adjusted the scene accordingly.
It has been more than a year since Philips Hue introduced dynamic scenes. Since the launch in September 2021, numerous functions have been added, such as speed adjustment or, most recently, automatic activation. As I have now learned, there should soon be another improvement that actually also has major implications for practice.
Philips Hue has released another update for its app this afternoon – and it includes an interesting innovation for the dynamic scenes. Among other things, this affects their use in conjunction with a switch or automation. The setting can be activated for each individual scene. To do this, simply select a scene that has already been saved in a room or zone and click on the Edit button.
In the community section on Hueblog.de Scillon asked a very interesting question. Unfortunately, I don't have a very positive answer, but I have a hard time assuming that many users have already dealt with this issue and will probably continue to do so in the future. Here is his concern: I have combined various Hue lamps in my bathroom into one zone and would like to control them with one switch.
A few weeks ago I praised the software development team of Philips Hue: Currently, new features are delivered almost every two weeks. Now the release of version 4.8 is imminent. With this update, Philips Hue will introduce a feature that many of us have been waiting for. The dynamic scenes introduced a few weeks ago will be a bit better with the upcoming update, when you will also be able to freely adjust the speed of the animation.
In the past few weeks, Philips Hue has not only launched numerous new hardware products, but has also made significant changes to the software. In addition to the new gradient function and Spotify integration, we were also pleased to see the introduction of dynamic scenes. These dynamic scenes work very simply and are integrated directly into the room view.
Just under a week ago, Philips Hue launched Dynamic Scenes. In the current version of the Hue app, you only have to select a scene from the Hue light scenes gallery to make a play button visible with which the dynamic scene can be started. So far, however, the change between the different colours is so slow that some users even think that the dynamic scenes do not work properly at all.
Yesterday, Philips Hue set off some real fireworks: New products and new functions were unveiled. It will be a few more days before we can take a look at the new hardware together – but fortunately there is also a lot to discover in terms of software. Numerous questions have reached me about the dynamic scenes that have been activated with the update to version 4.4 of the Philips Hue app.In
In addition to the many new products and the launch of the new Spotify integration, Philips Hue has even more in store today. Not only are there two more new features for the Philips Hue app, but there's also an update promise for the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box that will especially please PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X owners.
Already with the launch of the new Philips Hue app, Signify has announced to deliver an exciting new feature this summer: Dynamic Scenes. After I already gave you the first key data around the new feature quite a while ago, there is now news. As I was told by several readers, the dynamic scenes are probably about to be launched and are to be officially introduced with the update to version 4.4 of the Hue app.
