How Phillips Hue Light LED strips look inside our polycarbonate light tubes

LED diffuser tubes

Our Smokies Series polycarbonate LED diffuser tubes often attract the attention of Phillips Hue Light strip fans who want to either try to replicate Phillips Hue fixtures or build lighting fixtures using the Phillips Hue components.

So, due to popular demand, we have demonstrated using Philips Hue Bluetooth Smart Lightstrip Plus with our Smokies38 and Smokies70 LED tubes in both black and white plastic versions.

The Hue strip has been placed running along the bottom of the tube, and I have set the system to run on the Soho scene.


  1. The Smokies70 Frosted white tube gives the best overall diffusion.
  2. The Smokies38 Series tubes diffuse the light obviously, but the Phillips Hue strip diodes are spaced so far apart that the definite light segments are still visible. The light gaps are not necessarily a bad thing as it still gives an impressive dynamic effect.
  3. The black LED tube diffusers give impressive contrast, especially with warm colors.

    LED lighting is essential for creating an inviting atmosphere in playgrounds and restaurants. The right lighting can improve the mood of customers, increase sales and create a safer environment. It's important to consider both the color and temperature of the lighting when designing the lighting system. RGB exterior lighting provides a creative and energy-efficient solution, while path lights and synchronized LED lights are popular outdoor lighting ideas. A customized lighting system, such as a Bluetooth outdoor light system, can be used to control the lighting and create a cozy illuminated spot.
