CE Code Update 13

Bill Burr

In this article: CE code Section 20 — Locations in which corrosive liquids, vapours, or excessive moisture are likely to be present. The code is a comprehensive document. Sometimes it can seem daunting to quickly find the information you need. This series of articles provides a guide to help users find their way through this critical document. This is not intended to replace the notes in Appendix B or the explanations of individual requirements contained in the CEC Handbook, but will provide some help in navigating the code.

General

Section 22 amends or supplements the general requirements of the code. It provides specific rules for locations classified as Category 1 (moisture) or Category 2 (corrosive) environments that are sufficient enough to interfere with the normal operation of electrical equipment.

Philips Hue

Philips Lighting released the new Philips Hue gen 2 app for iOS and Android. With a fresh new design and intuitive interface, the new Philips Hue gen 2 app now features ‘Rooms’ meaning that you can group all of the lights in one room together to control them all at the same time; ‘Routines’ which are light schedules you create to support your daily activities; and ‘Scenes’ which extract the color palette from any picture to create a unique atmosphere personal to you. Through the new home dashboard, you can see an overview of all the lights across your home, and also switch them all on, off or to dim them with just a tap or a swipe.

New features

Rooms With the new Philips Hue gen 2 app you can control all the lights in a room or specific area at the same time, instantly. It’s easy to set up, taking just a few seconds, and was the most popular new feature when tested by consumers. Simply go to ‘Settings,’ ‘Room set-up’ and select the lights you wish to control; then all you need to do is name the room as you wish. As Philips Hue can be voice activated, with this new feature you can control the lights in a room through one voice command, such as “Set the living room to 10 percent” to create a cozy atmosphere.
