Hueblog-reader Maik impressed me with some photos from his house. Especially his ceiling light built with LightStrips is worth a look.

I still have some exciting reader projects in my mailbox, including a great bathroom installation by Hueblog reader Andy. But today we want to start with a great ceiling light which Maik presented to me in numerous photos. And I would say that we first let pictures speak for themselves before we take care of the details.

The wait is finally over: starting in mid-August, the new generation of Philips Hue GU10 lamps will be available.

We did not expect such a quick release: after Philips introduced new Hue lamps with additional Bluetooth connection last month – which are already available in the USA with an E27 base – there is new information for the European market. According to the information I have received, new lamps with Bluetooth will be delivered on August 15th.

It is one of the most impressive Hue projects I have seen so far: Thomas' garage entrance.

I am always amazed at the ideas that some Hue users come up with. But what Thomas has implemented in the last few weeks is particularly impressive. He has installed three Philips Hue Outdoor LightStrips in his garage driveway, perfectly recessed between the paving stones.

Sometimes it is the simple ideas that can be inspiring - for example a magnetic holder for the Philips Hue Play Lightbar.

The Philips Hue Play Lightbar is one of the most successful new Hue products of the year, even though the integration of Hue Sync has not yet progressed so far that the small Ambilight replacement lamps could be used.

Hue Bridge: How to activate the WiFi module The current Philips Hue Bridge in version 2.1 also provides a WiFi module. We show you how to use it.

The current Philips Hue Bridge in version 2.1 also provides a WiFi module. We show you how to use it.

I do not mind connecting the Philips Hue Bridge to my router with a LAN cable. Since I use my Fritz!Box and Netgear Orbi together, I have enough connections anyway. Nevertheless, it would be more useful to at least have the choice between the two connection options. At the moment, we can only speculate why Signify did not enable a WiFi function in the bridge.

Just in time for Gamescom, which starts this week, Philips Hue has introduced a new product: Hue Play.

When Philips Hue invited me to the Gamescom in Cologne a few weeks ago, I was already expecting a new product releases. I was already well informed about the Hue Entertainment partnership with Razor, so that couldn’t have been the reason. One day before Gamescom starts, the cat is out of the bag.

Entry level questions explained: Range and radiation of Philips Hue Today I would like to deal with two questions that have been asked several times. They deal with ZigBee’s protocol - which Philips Hue also relies on.

Today I would like to deal with two questions that have been asked several times. They deal with ZigBee’s protocol - which Philips Hue also relies on.

At the end of this month, Philips Hue’s new outdoor collection will be launched. This might probably be the reason for many of you to take a look at Philips Hue’s operating distance. This topic has been an issue ever since, for example in large single-family homes that extend over several floors.
