Community Question of the Week: Why doesn’t the switch-on behaviour work properly? Only one solution is recommended permanently

Only one solution is recommended permanently

For some time now, it has been possible to define in the lamp settings in the Hue app what should happen after the lamps lose power and are then switched on again. Should the Hue lamp light up in the last setting? Should it stay off if it was off? Or continue in standard white?

Community question of the week: What to do if the Gradient Lightstrip does not light up properly? A simple trick helps

A simple trick helps

About a year ago, the Philips Hue Ambiance Gradient Lightstrip came onto the market. For me, it is the successor of the Hue Lightstrip Plus, which has become better in all areas. It looks more stylish, lights up brighter and can also display several colours at the same time. But there are always questions, such as from Robin: I bought an Ambiance Gradient Lightstrip and a one-metre extension.

Community question of the week: Start dynamic scene via Hue switch This important function is missing

This important function is missing

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.

Community Question of the Week: Ambilight TV as a backlight How smart are the TVs really?

How smart are the TVs really?

Unfortunately, last week’s Community Question had to be cancelled – I had a little rest in the Netherlands. This week, however, it continues again – and this time I would like to clarify a question from Sandra that reached me by email a few days ago: As far as I know, the Philips Hue Play Gradient Light Strip can also be controlled as a separate light via the Hue App when the TV is off (not as a colour gradient, but at least as a single-colour lamp).

Sometimes you shouldn't think too complicated

It’s time again for the Community Question of the Week. Today’s question is not particularly complicated and the answer is not necessarily spectacular, but sometimes it’s the simple things that get you stuck.
