We have had to wait almost a year for this, now there is finally a solution to the problem. With a small adapter from Light Solutions you can connect an old Philips Hue Lightstrip of the third generation with a new Lightstrip extension of the fourth generation. Today I would like to show you this little adapter.
Last year, I already drew attention to a problem for which Philips Hue has no solution and will not offer one. Those who want to extend an old Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus no longer have a chance. With the fourth generation of the light strip, Philips Hue has adjusted the size of the six pins.
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.
