It should be another two months or so before Philips Hue finally launches its new wall switch module. Formerly developed by Insta as a Friends of Hue accessory, the product will be able to turn a traditional light switch into a smart light switch. I have already collected numerous answers about the new wall switch module for you.
Until now, there has been one big enemy of smart lighting: The classic light switch. A problem we all know. Because if the power supply of the Philips Hue lamps is disconnected via the light switch, control via the Hue app is no longer possible, routines do not work and voice assistants also no longer have a chance.
I had to dig deep in the archives, but it’s actually been more than five years since Philips Hue launched the dimmer switch. The successor, which I have already presented to you in detail in the past few weeks, is due to be launched this month. In any case, it is pleasing that the price has not increased.
More than eight years after the launch of Philips Hue, there is finally a solution to probably the biggest problem of the system. With the new Philips Hue Wall Switch Module, all classic light switches can be integrated into the system. The in-wall switch presented today is to be launched on the market in a few weeks at what I consider a fair price.
About one and a half years ago, Philips Hue started to equip its light sources with Bluetooth in addition to ZigBee. Most recently, numerous products were equipped with the additional wireless connection last summer, including the popular Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus. Another product, however, still seems to be waiting for an update: the Philips Hue Play Lightbar.
It’s been half a year since the new Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus with Bluetooth support hit the market. Apart from the additional wireless technology and the ability to reconnect cut-off parts with a connector, nothing significant has changed. But there is one problem: The new Lightstrip Plus cannot be connected with old extensions and the old Lightstrip Plus without Bluetooth is not compatible with the new extensions.
At the beginning of the week I already told you that there will soon be a second generation of the Philips Hue dimming switch. As I could now find out, Signify has not only slightly changed the design of the switch, but also adapted the way it works. I’ll tell you exactly what that will look like in this article.
Yesterday I already presented the new dimmer switch and a new outdoor lamp. With the latter, there are still some details to be clarified, so I have taken the article offline for the time being. But today I have the next new Philips Hue product for you: a new version of the Appear Outdoor wall lamp.
Today, I can share another glimpse of a new product with you: Philips Hue will update its popular and well-known dimmer switch in the near future. We have known it in its current form for some years now. The new version will look a lot more modern, but will offer the same functions.
Some time ago it was already on the net, now I can announce that it has arrived. The Innr RCL 110 is now in stock at Amazon and can be ordered for 64.99 euros.RCL stands for Round Ceiling Light, so it should be clear what it’s all about. In this ceiling light, the bulb is permanently integrated and cannot be replaced.
