For some time now, Innr has had a set of recessed spot lights in its portfolio. Equipped with an LED driver and a ZigBee controller, up to five extra flat recessed spotlights could be installed, which were equipped with a white LED. The RSL 110 model is now retiring, it is replaced by the Innr RSL 115.
Here in the blog I love to talk about Philips Hue, of course, but there are some lighting ideas that are difficult to realize with ZigBee. The LED panels from Nanoleaf, which have been with me for several years now, are definitely one of them. Starting with the Nanoleaf Aurora, which is now called Nanoleaf Light Panels, to the square Nanoleaf Canvas and the Nanoleaf Shapes Hexagons, which were launched in summer 2020.
After pre-orders were already possible in the past weeks, another new Hue product has been launched this week: The Philips Hue Iris including the Limited Edition. Limited is definitely the right keyword here, because the four special colours are currently anything but easy to get. Anyway, the limited special edition of the mood light is only sold at selected retailers.
Since I first came into contact with an Ambilight TV in 2010, I wouldn’t want to be without the technology. Unfortunately, true Ambilight is only available on Philips TVs – but with the Gradient Lightstrip, Philips Hue now has its own retrofit solution in its portfolio. In this review I would like to tell you about my experiences with the Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip.
A “Nanoleaf Live Event” has been announced on the manufacturer’s website for a few days now, and is scheduled to take place on October 15. There they want to unveil new products – but that’s exactly what we can do right now. In the social network Reddit, the new products have already made an early appearance.
Last week I was able to present the new Friends of Hue Outdoor Switch from Senic for the first time. Even before the official delivery to the first customers, the Berlin manufacturer provided me with a test sample – and of course I take this opportunity to give you the first impressions.
A few days ago I was able to give you the first information, now it is official. Senic, a small Berlin start-up, is now also offering a Friends of Hue counter for outdoor use. It is the first of its kind. The “Friends of Hue Outdoor Switch” has the same technology as the already known Friends of Hue switches.
In recent years, the Berlin-based manufacturer Senic has already made a name for itself in the Hue world. Thanks to the cooperation with Gira, a truly outstanding Friends of Hue switch has been launched on the market. Now Senic seems to be about to launch a new product. As I have learned from my sources, Senic is working on a new product for outdoor use.
You have already learned a lot about the Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip in the past two weeks and what can I tell you: there is still so much to discover with this new product. Today, I’d like to take a look with you at the distance between the LEDs. This is exactly one of the shortcomings of the Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus, where the individual LEDs are almost six centimetres apart.
There is news from Innr. In a few weeks a third outdoor product will be launched on the market, after having already launched an outdoor light strip and small garden spots a few months ago. The new product is called Innr OPL 130C, which is a pedestal light. It is sold together with a matching power supply as a starter set.
