Community question of the week: Switching off the LED lighting of the Hue Bridge Unfortunately only workarounds available

Unfortunately only workarounds available

As far as the positioning of the Hue Bridge is concerned, you are unfortunately relatively limited.

Before I take a look at version 4.29 of the Philips Hue app, I would like to revisit the topic of Matter.

Currently still in beta stage

It is probably the absolute worst case that especially users with a large installation fear: A total failure of the bridge.
