It will probably take a while before there are new products from Philips Hue – presumably there will be new fodder here in June. A little faster are the Dutch colleagues from Innr, who have already presented a new and a revised product today. And as befits the season, it's off into the garden.
If you look around the American retail market, you won't see much of the Innr brand already known here in Europe. No wonder, since the company, which originates from the Netherlands, has initially focused on the local market. But that could soon change. A few days ago, for example, Innr received ZigBee certification for four new light sources, three of which have a form factor that is very common in the US.
In recent months Innr has launched three outdoor products compatible with the Philips Hue Bridge. In addition to an outdoor lightstrip, they have also launched spots and, most recently, pedestal lights. Today I would like to present you an accessory for the latest products OPL 130C and OSL 130C.
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.
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.
While Philips Hue will be launching a whole load of new products next week, Innr is content with a small new release for the IFA season. In the coming weeks, a GU10 spotlight will be launched to provide improved illumination. Purely in terms of technical data, the Innr RS 226 model will not differ from the already available white spots marked RS 225.
In the past weeks and months I've been reporting on new and innovative products from Innr again and again, most recently I took a look at the Puck Lights. But what about the standard products we find in every Hue system? This is exactly what this article is about.
Last fall, Philips Hue launched a much improved version of its colored GU10 spot – which is currently affected by problems. Many users report beeping lamps when switched off, i.e. at 0 percent brightness. The good news first: this problem does not occur with the Innr color spots released in October 2019.
A few weeks ago, I was able to announce them – now they are available on Amazon. The new Innr vintage edition filament lamps. The Dutch manufacturer has already launched a “golden” lamp in standard shape in August, now they are expanding their assortment with two more lamps in Edison and Globe shapes.
Last year in August, the Dutch brand Innr was the first manufacturer to launch filament lamps with ZigBee connection. In September, Philips Hue followed suit with three filament lamps of its own, and now Innr is back at the helm.
