Philips Hue – a simple wireless lighting control system

Chose your wireless system wisely ….There is no open protocol like “wireless Dali” so look at the biggest international brands to help ensure you are not stuck with a white elephant. Philips Hue is built on Zigbee 3.0 – an open smart controls network. Hue is the worlds largest wireless installed base of smart IoT lighting.

It is easy to install and use. It is incredibly clever, simple and cheap.


Isn’t Hue just coloured bulbs and LED strips from Bunnings ?

Yes. Many consumers will have seen Philips Hue at Bunnings, Apple Stores, JB HiFi etc. But Modular Lighting Instruments though an exclusive partnership with Hue sell the “missing link” a Hue controller that works with fixtures rather than just bulbs

 

Hue Connect 1-10V

An electronic “switch” that sits at the start of the lighting circuit and turns the 240v on/off at the same time issuing a 1-10v dim signal to the drivers. A typical application is a group of downlights on one circuit, each downlight has a 1-10v driver wired with 2 core control wire. Constantly powered with no need for traditional switches.

The Hue Connect 1-10v is seen in the Hue app and gives wireless control of the lighting circuit. Max 300w load or 8 x 1-10v drivers. Can also switch a load eg a 300w halogen pendant. Friends of Hue product.

 

Hue Connect Dali

The Dali version of the above. The drivers are always powered “on” and the Hue Connect Dali controls the on/off & dim function. Max 8 Dali drivers

Hue Connect CC Driver

A constant current LED driver with builtin Hue control, wide selectable ampage and voltage range.

Zigbee 3.0 / Hue compatible

Hue Connect 1-10v is Friend of Hue. Hue Connect Dali & CC Driver are not; so do not have Siri / Home control. All Hue systems require a Hue bridge.

With the three types of Hue Connect we can control 99% of lighting, downlight, profiles, LED strips both standard white and tuneable white with Hue Connect Dali.

To complete the system simply add Hue sensors, dimmer switches and set up your timers.
