It has been almost two weeks since I first reported on two more products that might appear: The T-part for the Philips Hue low-voltage system, which was previously only available as a bundle with the 2.5-metre extension cable, will soon also be available separately. The same applies to the cable itself.
In the past weeks I have already given you all the important information about the new model of the Philips Hue Appear outdoor wall lamp. Together with the announcement of the new wall switch module, the manufacturer also confirmed the availability of the new stainless steel version of the Hue Appear from the end of the month.
The first information has already leaked out briefly in the past few weeks, but now we can officially announce it. In addition to the new Philips Hue wall switch module, the manufacturer has also presented the new Philips Hue Amarant outdoor lighting today. It is a wallwasher that expands the low-voltage portfolio of Philips Hue.
The last Philips Hue ceiling light I installed was the Hue Flourish pendant and let me tell you, it was a cramp and impossible on its own. With the latest ceiling light from the Hue portfolio, the Hue Centris, the installation has already been simplified considerably – here, a carabiner is used with which you can clamp the light to the fixture so that you can do the wiring in a relaxed manner and without a helping hand.
Yesterday I already presented the new dimmer switch and a new outdoor lamp. With the latter, there are still some details to be clarified, so I have taken the article offline for the time being. But today I have the next new Philips Hue product for you: a new version of the Appear Outdoor wall lamp.
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.
A few weeks ago, Senic launched the first Friends of Hue Outdoor Switch on the market. At the start it was sold for 69 Euros, but now it is at the regular price of 79 Euros. But you can still save money – if you need indoor switches as well. Senic has been selling the normal Friends of Hue indoor switch in a bundle of 3 for 189 Euros for some time.
When it comes to outdoor products, until a few months ago there was not much choice around the Hue system: you had to go to Philips Hue products. In the meantime, Müller-Licht Tint and Innr offer some outdoor products, and today I would like to introduce the latest candidate: The Innr OPL 130 C.
Last week I was able to present the new Friends of Hue Outdoor Switch from Senic for the first time. Even before the official delivery to the first customers, the Berlin manufacturer provided me with a test sample – and of course I take this opportunity to give you the first impressions.
A few days ago I was able to give you the first information, now it is official. Senic, a small Berlin start-up, is now also offering a Friends of Hue counter for outdoor use. It is the first of its kind. The “Friends of Hue Outdoor Switch” has the same technology as the already known Friends of Hue switches.
