A good a fortnight ago, Philips Hue launched Mimic Presence, its new feature in the Hue app. The new feature allows you to simulate presence in your home. Quite rightly, HueTommi asked the following question in our community: We are going on holiday soon for a week and I have set the simulation for four rooms.
It is now almost exactly ten years since Philips Hue was launched. What started with simple E27 light bulbs has now really grown up. Year after year, the Philips Hue product portfolio has grown, and now you can easily equip your whole house and garden with Philips Hue. But is that the end of the line?
Signify unveils a new range of Philips Hue smart lighting products and app features, from unique design options to complement home decor and create the perfect ambiance, to more immersive entertainment experiences for gaming and music. New launches include a striking range of contemporary style bulbs available in three distinctive shapes, a new gradient lightstrip specifically designed for PC monitors to bring the ultimate light experience to PC gaming and a new Mimic presence automation to the Hue app for more peace of mind when you’re away.
This function has been included in Hue Labs for some time now, and will soon also be found in the automations of the Hue app: Mimic Presence. The presence simulation is supposed to increase the security of your home when you are not at home. In any case, security is a topic that Philips Hue will probably deal with even more intensively this year.
