If your Philips Hue flowers are arbitrarily cranking up to 100 % on their own, you’re not only

Philips Hue smart lightbulbs
A bug that causes Philips Hue smart lights to turn on 100% randomly seems to be linked to Matter. A fix will be available soon, but there is a temporary solution. Signify, which owns Philips Hue announced early support for Matter, but then delayed adding it. Unknown users now report that they have seen this random increase in brightness. Signify spokesperson Kate Helander said to The Verge that after extensive analysis they had identified an interoperability problem with the Matter smart-home standard. “Random temporary radio traffic disruptions were incorrectly recognized as power toggles on legacy switches, turning low brightness lighting to full brightness.” It’s unclear whether the problem is with Signify or the Matter standards body Connectivity Standards Alliance. Signify has announced that a fix will be available within a week. Signify advises users affected by the problem to disconnect their Hue Bridges from Matter. The company says that users may need to do this both in the Matter app and in iPhone settings. Matter is a relatively new standard which aims to allow users to purchase smart home devices from different vendors, who each have their own proprietary technology. Apple, for example, supports Matter to ensure that its users do not have to use only HomeKit-enabled products. Signify announced Matter’s support for its smarthome range in August 2023. Security cameras are included, but so far there have not been any bugs reported in anything other than the lights.
