Hue Iris Limited Edition unpacked: A great gift idea with a twist Availability is a problem again

Availability is a problem again

After pre-orders were already possible in the past weeks, another new Hue product has been launched this week: The Philips Hue Iris including the Limited Edition. Limited is definitely the right keyword here, because the four special colours are currently anything but easy to get. Anyway, the limited special edition of the mood light is only sold at selected retailers.

Unboxing: The new Philips Hue Centris finally comes with a thought Assembly also possible without helping hands

Assembly also possible without helping hands

The new Philips Hue Centris, which is available in a total of four different configurations from €279.99 to €449.99, has already been properly discussed. One thing is clear: Optically, the mixture of spots and fixed LED module is certainly not everyone’s cup of tea. Whether you like one of the four models or not, I can’t judge at this point.

Retrospect: When Philips Hue was still beautifully boxed Already unboxing was a highlight

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.

After the Hue Tap and the Hue dimmer switch, the Hue Smart Button enters the market. I will unbox it for you.

This was quicker than I thought: Amazon was not supposed to deliver the Hue Smart Button until November, but now it happened very quickly. And I have learned from Signify sources: Amazon, after all an exclusive sales partner for the start, will also apply the correct price of 19.99 Euro for the Hue Smart Button soon.

In about two weeks, the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box will be launched. I'm already unpacking it for you today.

Since its introduction in mid-September, there’s been a lot of discussion about the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box. Especially regarding its price, the discussion has heated up quite fast and quite a lot. But until I was able to form my own opinion at home – unfortunately I don’t have access to the necessary app for the control unit at the moment – we just want to hide the 249,99 Euro.

First look at the Versteckdose: upgrade for the classic light switch You've already learned a lot about the Versteckdose. Now I have had a chance to try it for myself.

You've already learned a lot about the Versteckdose. Now I have had a chance to try it for myself.

It is a well-known problem: classic light switches and Philips Hue. It is best to keep them on all the time but that really doesn’t always work. The Versteckdose (engl. “hidden socket”) wants to provide a solution for this problem – and offers a big advantage compared to simply removing the classic light switch: The existing cables are simply used for a socket outlet.

After manufacturers Niko and Vimar have already presented their products, Busch-Jaeger is the first German manufacturer that offers the new Friends of Hue switches. Seen from a technical point of view, there are no surprises because Busch-Jaeger also makes use of the well-known EnOcean module in its switch. Nevertheless I’d like to show you the content of the 99 euro package in a small video (in German language).
