Updating globe ligths
Your i OS device already has the Home Kit settings from when you set up your Hue Bridge the first time, and for some reason, Philips Hue doesn’t like it when you want to overwrite those settings when you reset your Hue Bridge. Go through the Siri setup process again in the Philips Hue app and it should work this time around.
If you set Siri up successfully within Philips Hue, but the Bridge unpairs randomly from Home Kit at some point, it’s likely because you removed the Hue Bridge from within another Home Kit-supported app.
So this one below is the front-runner: Ideally, I’d like to find globes that really aren’t globes as all – Something with straight straight straight lines with no curves at all.
Check the packaging and make sure they’re Hue lights. In our experience, Auto Search can be flaky from time to time, while Manual Search almost always works.
My second favorite is the other clear glass one with the bubbles in it, but that was John’s least favorite so it’s a no-go.
The small frosted one is a bit too small and it’s not as contemporary as I’d like, and the big frosted globe is a little TOO big.
Three of the new ones on the fixture to the right and the big frosted globe made it in amongst the old globes to the left: Here are a couple of close ups of the one on the left (try to ignore the old globes flanking the new one in the center…): And then the other set: I also took a couple of shots with the lights off since I know they are sort of hard to see.
So far, John and I are both leaning towards the grooved globe – It’s got that vintage vibe we like without getting into traditional.
