INTRODUCTION HUE Bridge - Modular Lighting Instruments

Application Note - Tips and tricks HUE
INTRODUCTION
The Hue system consists of the following components:
• Bridge
• Modular connected 1-10V white, Hue lamps, Hue Strip, …
• Devices (Hue Tap, Hue Dimmer switch and Hue Motion Sensor)
• Router
• Smart device (phone or tablet)
To ensure a correctly-working Hue system, most of these components are required.
The Hue system is intended to implement in high-end residential, hospitality, small-office and smallretail applications. Not intended for use in big office, retail or healthcare projects.
HUE Bridge
GENERAL
The bridge is the beating heart of the Hue system. It is the connection between the home router and
smart device.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The bridge is ‘hardwired’ to the router, i.e. a fixed connection (via LAN cable) is used. The bridge utilizes
the wireless ZigBee communication protocol to communicate with the various lights, luminaires and
other devices. In combination with the Philips Hue app (available in Appstore (for iOS) and Playstore (for
Android) it is possible to control Hue lamps, strips, … with a smart device. The smart device connects
with the bridge using WiFi communication.
GOOD TO KNOW
•
•
•
•
One single bridge can control max. 50 Hue components (lamps, strips, Hue White 1-10V
modules, …). It is advised to have only 1 bridge per project.
The smart device communicates (through the app) with the bridge by means of WiFi. So it is
important that both smart device and bridge are connected to the same wireless network.
It is possible to set up a Hue system without using a bridge. More info in the section about Hue
Dimmer Switch.
The bridge has to be placed in a secure environment so unauthorized use of the bridge push
button is prevented.

GOOD TO KNOW
•
•
The complete system output is always 1600lm. So if you extend the system e.g. up to 8m,
system output of 1600lm remains, so 1600lm/8m = 200lm/m
Due to the fact that there is a socket outlet driver and a Hue control box, always keep in mind
that these components need to be integrated somewhere.
Dimensions of the components:
1. Strip: width 14mm, height 3.5mm, length 2000mm, backside fitted with self-adhesive
material
2. Connected module: length 88mm, width 37mm, height 14mm
3. Cable from connected module to adapter: 2 pole cable, outer diameter 5mm, length
2500mm
4. Adapter (EU and UK plug type included): length 82mm, width 47mm, height 38mm

MODULAR CONNECTED 1-10V WHITE
GENERAL
Order reference: 13190030 (12NC: 915005365301)
Modular connected 1-10V white is a light controller unit within the Hue Ecosystem. It allows to switch
on/off luminaires and control them via the Hue app. It is a white only solution, so not for use with RGB
sources.
The module is suitable for mounting in an electrical cabinet, as well as stand alone (e.g. to put into false
ceiling). The module is fitted with strain relief brackets and a cover.
When opening the plastic cover at the connection side, a separate plastic bracket can be found. This is
not a strain relief accessory, but an extra bracket to click in the bottom of the housing at the opposite
side of the connector side. The extra bracket allows to have a firmer fixation when screwing Modular
connected 1-10V white on a surface (see pics below):
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Modular connected 1-10V white is seen in the app as a single white dimmable light source. Following
building blocks are needed to have the system fully functional:
•
•
•
LED luminaire (also fluorescent or halogen luminaires will work)
1-10V dimmable LED driver chosen from Modular driver matrix (or 1-10V fluo ballast, or 1-10V
halogen transformer)
Hue White 1-10V module
Modular HUE Application Note – V7-23/11/2016
Modular connected 1-10V white has to be put in front of the LED driver as controlling unit. It has a 230V
input (to power the module) and a 230V output (to power the LED driver).
The dimming wires run from the module towards the 1-10V input of the LED driver.
It is not recommended to use Modular connected 1-10V white without the 1-10V dimming wires
connected as in this case Modular connected 1-10V white will not be recognized in the app as such.
The input voltage must be between 198 and 253V AC (50-60Hz).
The module is fitted with WAGO 250 connectors and accepts wire sections from 0.5 upto 1.5mm², both
solid and stranded wire type.
The Hue White 1-10V module can control:
• Max. 400VA
• Max. 10 LED drivers
Modular connected 1-10V white has to be powered constantly, not to lose connection with the Hue
bridge. In case power on the module is cut off, the module will be seen in the app as ‘unreachable’.
Modular connected 1-10V white has a stand-by power of 0,3W.
Modular connected 1-10V white is designed for at least 30.000 switching cycles and has a lifetime of at
least 50.000 hours.

round recess hole of minimum diameter 57mm:
HUE Tap
GENERAL
Order reference: 70000615 Hue Tap EUR
The Hue tap uses the wireless ZigBee communication protocol to communicate with the bridge. The tap
commands are relayed to the bridge through the lights.
Modular HUE Application Note – V7-23/11/2016
HOW DOES IT WORK
Hue tap has 4 programmable buttons.
Adding scenes/lights to the buttons is done via the app.
After scenes/lights are programmed to the buttons, the app is not needed anymore to control the lights.
Hue tap is behaving as a remote control than.
GOOD TO KNOW
•
•
•
•
•
•
Hue tap works batteryless. Pushing AND releasing one of the 4 programmable buttons generates
energy to send ZigBee signal (‘energy harvesting’ principle)
Hue tap has a range of 15 and 30 meter indoor (depending on circumstances)
Maximum 25 Hue tap devices can be connected on one Hue bridge (if no other switches are
connected to the system)
Button 1 is normally always programmed as OFF switch (because it’s the biggest button)
The dimmer switch has a backplate with a piece of double side tape at the backside. So it’s
possible to place it anywhere. Also holes for screwing the plate to the wall are provided
Hue tap has no ‘reset’ button at the backside. To reset the Hue tap to factory settings, push 10
seconds button n°2
HUE Dimmer Switch
GENERAL
Order reference: 70000614 Hue Dim Switch EU
The Hue dimmer switch uses the wireless ZigBee communication protocol to communicate with the
bridge. The dimmer switch commands are relayed to the bridge through the lights.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Hue dimmer switch has 4 buttons: on, off, dim up and dim down.
Hue dimmer switch can be used to control your lights without using the app (see as easy remote
control).
Modular HUE Application Note – V7-23/11/2016
The Hue dimmer switch can be used with or without a bridge. When using with a bridge, the settings of
the Hue dimmer switch are set via the app.
It’s also possible to use the dimmer switch without bridge and in this way it’s possible to set up a very
easy and simple wireless dimming system. You simply connect the dimmer switch with one or several
lamps. Communication between dimmer switch and lamps is directly done via ZigBee, without bridge.

Complete system overview
Modular HUE Application Note – V7-23/11/2016
SYSTEM principle
ZIGBEE COMMUNICATION PROTOCOL
The Hue system is based on the ZigBee communication protocol.
The smart device (phone or tablet) communicates with the bridge with WiFi, while communication
between bridge and lights, devices, … is done via ZigBee. Also lights, devices, … communicate with each
other via ZigBee.
ZigBee is a wireless, low power, mesh communication protocol that operates on the 2.4GHz free radio
frequency band.
Low power: saves energy when lights are switched off by the app.
Mesh communication: each light can relay commands to other lights in the Hue system connected to the
bridge. This increases the stability of the entire system.
Modular HUE Application Note – V7-23/11/2016
Remark:
To operate the Hue system in the home, make sure the smartphone or tablet and the Bridge are always
connected to the same WiFi network. Do not attempt to connect to your guest network if you wouldn’t
normally use this, for example.
HOW TO OPTIMIZE ZIGBEE COMMUNICATION
The Hue system is based on the ZigBee communication protocol.
ZigBee is a wireless, low power, mesh communication protocol that operates on the 2.4GHz free radio
frequency band.
Because ZigBee uses the 2.4GHz free radio frequency band, it might encounter interference from other
wireless devices or sources, such as WiFi devices, which operate on the same 2.4GHz frequency.
A consequence of these disturbances, slow or faltering connection may be experienced, or loss of
connection. This will result in ‘unreachable’ designation the Hue app, indicating the lights can no longer
be controlled.
Examples of possible obstacles or sources of interference for ZigBee:
• Walls of reinforced concrete
• Underfloor heating or foil lining
• Streaming video/audio on a TV set/monitor/tablet
• Wireless alarms and / or cameras
• A neighbours’ Wireless network
• Wireless Baby Monitor (with camera)
• Using a Hue lamp in a metal luminaire
• DECT telephone sets
• Wireless light switches or doorbells
• Weather stations
• Electric cabling
• Etc….
Modular HUE Application Note – V7-23/11/2016
HOW TO IMPROVE STABILITY OF ZIGBEE SYSTEM
The ZigBee signal is relatively sensitive to interference. The bridge plays a central role in the Hue system;
when installing the bridge, pay attention to the following points:
•
•
Do not position the Bridge in a corner, against a wall, if possible.
Place the Bridge in a ‘free standing’ position, e.g. not in the proximity of a modem, TV, etc. Any
type of active equipment could influence the transmission of the ZigBee signal.
In this example, the bottom right lamp acts as a bottleneck in the mesh network.
When using a configuration like this, you may experience a slower response times.
What’s more, if the lamp experiences any issues or breaks, contact between the bridge and the rest of
the network might be lost.
By moving the bridge to a more central location in the installation, you can remove the bottleneck and
improve communication in the mesh network
‘UNREACHABLE’ IN APP
Extra attention is needed if ‘unreachable’ appears in the app next to the lights. If this happens, all the
lights have to be powered and wait five minutes.
Modular HUE Application Note – V7-23/11/2016
If ‘unreachable’ doesn’t disappear, the connection to the bridge might be sub-optimal. One of the
following options can be tried:
• Replace/relocate light
• Place light in between
• ZigBee Channel Change
Note:
Even if some lamps are marked ‘unreachable’, the App may still be able to control the lights. However, it
is still necessary to reconsider the layout of the bridge and / or the lights. The reason the App might still
be able to control these lights is due to the fact that the Hue bridge transmitter has more power than
the transmitters in the lights. This means the lights may be able to receive messages from the bridge,
but the bridge cannot receive messages returning from the lights, which will result in the ‘unreachable’
designation in the app.
REPLACE/RELOCATE LAMP
Replace/relocate hue lights by turning the light 180 degrees, so the internal antenna points in a different
direction.
Another option is to reposition the lamp:
Modular HUE Application Note – V7-23/11/2016
PLACE A LAMP IN BETWEEN
If the lamp displaying ‘unreachable’ is placed at a too large distance from the bridge or the nearest
adjacent light, an extra luminaire/lamp can be placed in between to improve communication and relay
ZigBee commands.
Note: this additional lamp must be powered and be part of the Hue system.
ZIGBEE CHANNEL CHANGE
ZigBee is a wireless, low power, mesh communication protocol that operates on the 2.4GHz free radio
frequency band. Within this radio band, the ZigBee communication protocol uses four communication
channels: 11, 15, 20 and 25.
(Note: one of these channels is randomly programmed at the factory).
Due to the fact that ZigBee and Wi-Fi both operate within the same frequency band, there is an overlap
in communication channels:
Modular HUE Application Note – V7-23/11/2016
This overlap may result in RF interference. This might become apparent whenever slow connection is
experience or when connection falters or when there is no connection at all. Lamps marked as
‘unreachable’ will appear in the app.
When using ZigBee channel change and what are the symptoms that should prompt you to try a ZigBee
Channel Change:
• Lamps are sometimes out of operating reach
• Lamps sometimes respond slowly
• Lamps do not always respond
• Hue Tap does not always respond
• Newly added lamps can’t be located, even when using the serial number
An extra test can be performed by placing the ‘unreachable’ light within three meters of the Bridge. If
this solves the problem and the light can be operated normally it’s advised executing a ZigBee channel
change.
Note: a ZigBee channel change will not solve the problem of lights being out of reach due the presence
of, for example, a concrete wall.
In the App: go to ‘Home’ -> Hue Bridges -> Select the bridge you want to change the channel by pressing
on ‘i’ -> select Zigbee -> select Change Channel menu -> settings -> My Bridge -> ZigBee channel change
and follow the on-screen instructions.
It’s advised executing a ZigBee channel change, and observing whether the communication has
improved or the problem has been solved during the next few days. If not, another ZigBee channel
change has to be executed and, again, it should be observed whether communication has improved over
the next few days.
The ZigBee channel change sequence is 11 -> 20 -> 15 -> 25 -> 11
WIFI SIGNAL
The success of WiFi has a downside: all WiFi networks are beginning to interfere with each other,
especially because many other types of device now also use WiFi to communicate. As a result wireless
communication channels become crowded, which can slow down or even halt ZigBee communication.
At present there are two frequencies that can be used for WiFi. The first and most commonly used is
2.4GHz. This is used and supported by many wireless devices and by all mobile devices. The second
Modular HUE Application Note – V7-23/11/2016
frequency is 5GHz. More and more mobile devices are now also equipped to use this frequency.
Channels in the 5 GHz range have no influence on the ZigBee 2.4GHz.
When encountering ZigBee communication problems, a switch to the other WiFi frequency is a possible
solution. Consult the modem installation instructions (or internet provider) to find out how.
SOFTWARE
Using the correct software is key to a correctly working Hue system.
To ensure correct operation of the Hue system, it is vital that all components, including the app, always
run the latest software version.
The Hue app can perform a software check and inform whether the system (Bridge, lamp/luminaires) is
up to date.
Go to: Home -> About
Every 24 hours, the system will automatically check to see whether new system software is available.
If this is the case, notification will automatically appear in the Hue app to notify you that new software is
available and is ready for installation. Tap on the notification and follow the on-screen instructions.
It is also possible to manually check whether the system is up to date.
Remark:
It is important that lamps are mains powered for at least 24 hours, that they aren’t connected to a wall
switch set to ‘off’ and that they aren’t outside the operating range. (‘unreachable’ mark in the app, side
bar menu -> Lights).
In case the lamps are outside the operating range, check the “how to improve ZigBee communication”
topic to resolve this.
Downloading lamp software can take up to 45 minutes per lamp. During this upload process, you can
continue to use the hue system without any problems. When the download is ready, a notification will
appear in the app.
GEOFENCING (HOME & AWAY)
Geofencing will only work on devices which support WiFi as well as a cellular connection too (remark:
most tablets don’t have cellular connection).
This is required to determine whether you are crossing a predefined geographical boundary around your
home. This boundary will be different depending on whether you live in an urban (cities, towns) or a
rural area (villages, hamlets), due to the density of cell towers.
To help determine your geofence position more accurately, you can control your geofencing zone.
Go to app -> Routines -> Home & Away
iOS device geofence tips:
Login to My hue via the app on the device that will be used for geofencing. (go to side bar menu -> “Log
in to my hue” and follow onscreen instructions)
Make sure to set up geofence while at home.
Enable your location services.
Hue app must be given permission to use your location (It will ask you once: if a user says NO, the
setting will remain NO)
Device should not be in ‘airplane mode’ or similar restricted functionality
Android devices geofence tips:
Modular HUE Application Note – V7-23/11/2016
Login to My hue via the app, on the device that will be used for geofencing. (go to side bar menu -> “Log
in to my hue” and follow instructions on screen)
Make sure to set up geofence while at home.
You can deny google play services or other apps access to location-data. If you disable access for our
app, geofencing will no longer work.
Some apps generate ‘fake’ location data. If you do this, geofencing will no longer work.
For some devices, you’ll need to enable ‘> Use Wi-Fi/cellular network’ in settings.
Device should not be in ‘airplane mode’ or similar restricted functionality
Remarks:
When crossing the border of your geofence area, your device might switch between Wi-Fi and cellular
data. If the Hue app is transmitting a signal at that moment, it will fail. The geofencing feature will not
work.
Bridge is up and running (connected to mains, connected to the internet and portal LED is not flashing)
HUE TAP
To connect a tap, go to Home -> Switch setup -> add switch by pushing ‘+’ and follow instructions on
screen.
If a Hue tap is no longer working, it has probably been decommissioned and is no longer connected to
the bridge. This may occur if a button of the tap is held down for longer than 10 seconds.
To reconnect the tap, follow the steps taken to connect a new tap to the hue system.
If this, for some reason, does not work you can delete all rules related to the tap.
Note: the tap uses the ZigBee communication protocol to communicate with the Bridge and, therefore,
with the lights.
HUE & DIMMERS
Fixture, wall or cable dimmers negatively influence lamp performance and lifetime.
We advise using hue products with equipment not equipped with dimmers or removing the dimmers
from your application.
