The Hue Sync App is required to use it, but the entertainment area is still set up and managed via the normal Hue App. Last year, the Philips Hue Bluetooth App was also added, allowing newcomers to control up to ten lamps via direct connection.

Already unboxing was a highlight

Sometimes I have really weird ideas. This weekend, I ordered a first generation Philips Hue starter set. More than seven years old, equipped with the first generation bridge. There are also three colourful lamps, which can only display some colours poorly. With a maximum of 600 lumens they are about 25 percent darker than their successors.
