Your network isn’t big enough
The more Hue lights you have, the bigger your network is and the more routes a bulb can take to the Hue Bridge. If you find that bulbs furthest from the Hue Bridge aren’t working, network range could be an issue. There are several options to help you.
In this way, why do Hue lights take so long to update?
Updates to Hue lights can take up to a few hours to download and install, it can take time due to the wireless connection that the bulbs use which is ZigBee, with the transferring of data taking some time. The more lights you have the longer it will take.
One may also ask, how do you update hue lights? You can update your system in the Philips Hue app. Open the app, go to settings and click “Software-update“. The app will now start to look for updates and download them when available.
how long do Hue lights take to update?
This background update will check in with Philips in the next 24 hours, and pull the update down when it is available. Once that update is at your Bridge, the update will be installed on your bulbs at the time you selected.
How do I fix unreachable Hue lights?
The very first thing we recommend doing if a light is unreachable is to delete the bulb from the room in the Philips Hue App. Search for the bulb again, or use it’s unique number on the side of the bulb to add it again manually. If found just assign it to your room again and it should work as intended.
