A few weeks ago, I took a closer look at the WiZ Portrait desk lamp on our german Apple blog. For 99.99 euros, you get a desk lamp that you can use not only to illuminate your workspace, but also as a ring light during video conferences. In addition to the direct Matter integration, there is another particularly exciting detail about the WiZ Portrait: the desk lamp is powered via a USB-C port.
I have to talk to you again. The reason is a question from the community section on Hueblog.de. Tommi has contacted me with the following request: I want to connect two Hue Lightstrip Plus to one power supply, because I only have one socket available and want to save a multiple socket for space reasons.
Actually, Philips Hue had a great idea with the launch of the Play Lightbar several years ago: The power supply is equipped with three slots to be able to operate several Lightbars at one socket. The Hue Sync Box, the Lightstrip Plus, the Gradient Lightstip and the Signe table lamp as well as the Hue Iris and Hue Bloom also use the same connection.
In October, I already drew your attention to the Philips Hue outdoor power supply exchange programme. And now that some of you are getting your garden ready for spring, it's time to remind you of the story again. It's about the 40 Watt Outdoor Power Supply from Philips Hue. This was sold with the starter sets of the Hue Lily or Hue Calla, and the power supply of the Outdoor Lightstrips can also be affected.
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.
For more than two years now, Philips Hue has been offering its low voltage system for outdoor use. Starting with Lily and Calla, there is now a whole range of products that can be connected together. The Philips Hue Outdoor LightStrip or the brighter Lily XL are very popular, too. Up to now there was only one outdoor power supply with a maximum output of 40 watts, at least that is what Philips Hue says.
Yesterday, Signify introduced several new outdoor products at CES in Las Vegas. There are some very interesting new releases such as the Appear and Resonate wall lights with their up- and downward beams. But also the popular “plug-and-play” portfolio has been expanded by two low-voltage lights: Lily XL and the Impress wall light.
