Your house may benefit from smart lighting, and Philips Hue is one of our top choices. Hue is reportedly working on a brand-new Natural Light option, and it looks quite cool. This mode is intended to simulate actual outside lighting conditions.
It was planned for last year for this new Natural Light option to be available, but instead it arrived with delayed . Over the course of a day, the function is intended to slowly transition from the chilly Energize temperature to the warm Relax temperature later in the day.
HueBlog spotted that despite their being no formal notice, the capability became available to select customers this week. Before it was unexpectedly withdrawn, the feature was available through search and worked in rooms and scenes for some users. The Natural Light option was subsequently replaced with a warning in the Hue app informing users that it was not yet officially supported.
The function is described as follows in the app:
Natural light uses various tones of warm-to-cool white light to simulate the sun’s movement throughout the day in order to aid your productivity and make you feel supported in your general well-being. Your lights will change automatically throughout the day, starting with bright, energizing tones to get you through the mornings and ending with a softer, golden glow to help you unwind as the sun sets.
Given the false start, it appears that the official release of this feature isn’t too far away.
