I got a few questions about the Rules feature:

a) There is a trigger option 'at a certain time' but I'm not able to select it. Am I missing a setting or has this feature not been fully implemented yet?

b) Another option allows to chain scenes
- How can I determine the order the scenes get called?
- Will this chain of scenes run once or in a loop?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
Johannes

Thank you for the request.

(a) The feature is implemented and fully working but you cannot combine it with it the action 'switch to next scene in list'. The reason is that the next scene in the list is activated when a button on Hue Tap or Dimmer is pressed. Combination with alarm/timer is technically not possible.

(b) The order of the scenes is as displayed in the scenes list. You can change the position of a scene in the list with the context menu of each scene. The scenes will not loop. The next scene will be activated when the selected Hue Tap or Dimmer button is pressed.

BR, Rene

And this is why one should never buy hardware that requires a mandatory cloud service to fulfill it's local purpose.

From a tech savvy perspective, I cannot see any benefit in controlling my home via a cloud service. The hub has an integrated HTTP server anyway, remote access c/should be done by VPN, there's no necessity to share anything outside my house, I have to trust the provider that my data stays private and is well secured.

This pattern can be seen in a lot of devices nowadays. E.g. if you want to share Philips Hue scenes (that are stored on the bridge) across several devices, you need to register with the cloud service. If you own a fitness tracker and want the data on your smartphone, you need to register with a cloud service (almost all the fitness trackers on the market do all important calculations directly in the device, connect via Bluetooth to your smartphone, send the data into the cloud only to download it again and display some graphs on your mobile - come on, this is bollocks!)

So please dear colleagues that are involved in the development of any connected device, triple check if cloud connectivity is necessary for the base functionality of your product and - if not - slap that marketing dimwit
trying to enforce it right across the face. Yes, you can easily get customer restraint by caging them in but in the long run it's a better approach to get real customer loyalty by satisfaction.

Someone should develop open source firmware to replace the existing firmware to allow these to continue to function.

Hi all,

maybe you can help me - I'm looking for a 7" to 12" inch monitor, minimum 1280x720 native resolution, no china import ( = shipped from inside the EU, I hate the hassle with customs), preferably below 200€ - no builtin speakers needed, touch would be nice but is no necessity.

All my usual vendors give me nada and Amazon marketplace seems only to have imports.

So... is there anything you can recommend?

+Scott Miller thanks, but I need something with VGA or HDMI. I need all the USBs undisturbed for audio and harddrives (both CD players act as soundcards and can't be run on a hub)

Irgendein A*** hat im laufe der letzen Woche mein Fahrrad von unserem Hof geklaut

Typ: GT Avalanche Baujahr '92, Rahmenfarbe weiß mit schwarzen Tupfen, blauer Avalanche-Aufdruck.
Das Fahrrad unten auf dem Foto unten ist nicht meins, das hat zusätzlich noch einen Flaschenhalter, einen Gel-Sattel und Kork-Griffe mit Hörnchen am Lenker.

Falls Ihr jemand damit durch den Rhein-Neckar-Raum fahren seht, grüßt schön von mir :(

Hallo,

ich habe ein Problem mit der Einbindung von RGBW-Lightify-Birnen in Szenen. Hier werden offenbar manchmal nicht alle Einstellungen in die Szene übernommen / gelesen, falls die Einstellung nicht mit all 4 hue sondern mit einer anderen App vorgenommen wurde - z.b. Lampe Blau mit Philips Hue eingestellt bzw. vorhandene PH-Szene aufgerufen,  Abspeichern der Szene mit all 4 hue, Rosa beim Aufruf der Szene über all 4 hue. In anderen Fällen bleiben die Lightifies beim Aufruf der  all 4 hue-Szene  einfach ganz aus.

Ich werde mal noch ein bisschen weiter experimentieren und sehen ob ich ein voll reproduzierbares Muster finde.

:)

+Rene Wahl Heute hatte ich leider den gleichen Effekt mit einer Hue RGBW. Aufruf einer mit der Philips-App erstellten Szene (3 Lampen, alles Hues), abspeichern einer neuen Szene mit all 4 hue. Eine der Lampen wurde nicht mit den aktuellen Werten sondern mit denen der zuvor bearbeiteten Szene übernommen.

Da mir auch schon in anderen Apps aufgefallen ist, das es gelegentlich Diskrepanzen zwischen Status und Anzeige gibt, könnte man vielleicht oben in der Leiste einen Button zur manuellen Aktualisierung einbauen? (Analog zu dem Tasker-Screenshot hier nebenan)

Grüße,
Johannes

(a little off topic maybe, but...)
If you're a bit like me you're sitting behind your desk way to much. I've been thinking about to target this problem with some activity tracking wearable but I'm not really happy about sharing that data with some company.

I'm pretty sure there must be some wristbands out there that do not require you to upload your whole life to the cloud only to view some reports on your mobile or laptop (but somehow all reviews miss this point). My main interest in self quantifying would be activity (steps), sleep quality and maybe heart rate. I'm also looking for silent alarms and smartphone notifications (integrated buzzer). 

So my question is: which wearable do you use (if any) and what were the key factors for your decision on that device?

This resurfaced 80ies video is not great - it's the greatest of all time, in fact it trumps everything! Written by, directed by and starring the one, the only, Donald Trump!

Also has appearances of Alf, Doc Brown and many others (Warning: might also contain traces of Johnny Depp, but you'll barley notice)
Donald Trump has it all. Money, power, respect, and an Eastern European bride. But all his success didn’t come for nothing. First, he inherited millions of dollars from his rich father, then he grabbed New York City by the balls. Now you can learn the art of negotiation, real estate, and high-quality brass in this illuminating made-for-TV special feature, Funny Or Die Presents Donald Trump’s Th...

Hi all, I'm searching for a cyber security talk which I watched earlier this year but cannot find anymore. As far as I remember the talk was >90 min, very technical, held by lady and discussed various stages of an attack, from spear phishing, manipulating admins into running contaminated power shell scripts (js oncopy attack) to - and this is the point I'm interested in - running processes on the windows alternate desktop when the user locks the PC.
If anynone knows the presentation I'm talkin about or can point me to other resources for the 'hide in alternate desktop attack' please let me know.

Thanks in advance!
