Every now and then I receive e-mails about the Philips Hue outdoor series. On the one hand with beautifully staged outdoor areas, on the other hand with problem reports again and again. A classic, for example, are defects around the outdoor connectors. But what Hueblog reader Karl has now described to me is indeed beastly.
Spring has officially started this week. I haven’t really noticed it yet in the last few days. Nevertheless, it’s time to get the patio and garden back in shape to enjoy the spring outdoors. Of course, the right light should not be missing. After all, the days will surely come when you can make yourself comfortable again on the lounge in the garden and enjoy the time in the fresh air.
Already in the summer of last year, Philips Hue introduced another model under the name “Hue Go”. A portable table lamp was supposed to appear in late summer 2022. Unfortunately, nothing came of it, at least in Europe. Today there is good news: The portable table lamp Philips Hue Go Portable is now available in Germany and other European countries.
The Philips Hue Nyro came onto the market at the beginning of 2020, as a base and wall lamp, both models I have already presented to you in an article. After I had to realise a few weeks ago that it is extremely difficult to cut laminate on a dark roof terrace, I installed the Hue Nyro there again.
In spring 2020, Philips Hue introduced the outdoor wall light Resonate. It throws a triangular cone of light downwards and upwards onto the wall, but does without two separately controllable LEDs. Now Philips Hue has additionally neutered the Resonate and also offers it as a variant with a light beam directed only downwards.
After the announcement at the beginning of the month, the new Philips Hue Resonate with the downward light beam is now available in the official online shop of Philips Hue. The wall lamp for outdoor use can be ordered for 119.99 euros. While the Resonate models, which can shine downwards and upwards, will remain 10 euros higher in price in February, the new release will remain at this price for now.
During the CES in Las Vegas, Philips Hue presented its new releases for the start of 2023. The highlight was certainly the new Hue Sync TV app. Beyond that, there was only one real new product, the Philips Hue Resonate Downwards with a downward light beam. The model will be available from 24 January for 119.99 euros.
Perhaps you have already noticed: Today is the longest day of the year. It’s also clear that the days are getting shorter again and lighting is needed on the terrace or balcony in the evening. Philips Hue has presented a potential candidate today: The portable table lamp from the Hue Go series.
A few weeks ago, Innr introduced new outdoor products. In addition to two brighter light strips for outdoor use, there are also new globes. These are called Innr Outdoor Smart Globe and are available in a 3-pack as a starter set with power supply and ZigBee radio module. In addition, the starter set can be supplemented with up to two further globes.
It’s time again for the Community Question of the Week. Today’s question is not particularly complicated and the answer is not necessarily spectacular, but sometimes it’s the simple things that get you stuck. Manuel, for example, asked a question that has certainly crossed the minds of one or two Hue users.
