Useful only for ambient light in short lenghts
4. Oktober 2018
My intention was to use Philips Hue Light strips as part of my general lighting in my living room. I was impressed by the second generation of the strips and the 1600 lumens brightness. I have 15meters of light strips.
The hue system is working very well. It has very good integration with Apple Home Kit and its own Philips application is working great. The colors are fantastic!
Unfortunately, I had two major problems that made these strips unusable:
First problem – the brightness of 1600lumens is per light strip – no matter how long it is – the power supply is not able to provide more power (if you have 2 meters it is 1600lumens – if you extend it to 5 meters the whole strips is again 1600lumens);
Second problem – the power supply unit is buzzing (high frequency noise is coming out) if you have longer (4meter or more in my case) strip;
I believe these strips are useful only for ambient light and in small lengths.
