I already explained a few days ago what a small inconspicuous switch can do: as soon as the Smart Button is coupled with a Hue Bridge, some third-party products from Innr, for example the popular Smart Plug SP 120, will fail. But that’s by far not all – as the following comment from Hueblog reader Peter shows: “I don’t have any Innr products in use, but I notice that after the integration of six Hue Buttons the whole Hue system becomes very unstable.
I’m always amazed at my blog readers’ creativity. Christoph has now sent me a pretty exciting project, which of course I don’t want to withhold from you. He has installed the Hue Smart Button in a regular push button from Gira. These materials are needed Philips Hue Smart Button push buttons, for example from Gira single conductor cable soldering iron & tools Christoph explains in the following instructions how the installation of the Smart Button works.
At the end of this month, Philips Hue’s new outdoor collection will be launched. This might probably be the reason for many of you to take a look at Philips Hue’s operating distance. This topic has been an issue ever since, for example in large single-family homes that extend over several floors.
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?
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.
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.
The light should switch off automatically after exactly one hour? You want to receive a visual reminder in seven minutes? All this is no problem for the smart lighting system with the latest updates from Philips Hue. In addition to the official Hue app, we once again recommend iConnectHue because it offers respective settings.
Philips Hue products have been around for about five years now, and of course a lot has happened during that time. The best known example is certainly the Bridge, although here the difference between the first and second generation can be seen very quickly: the first generation Bridge is circular, the second generation square and has a blue illuminated ring.
