Hue play gradient light strip repair, are they dumb with out the controller?

Other than the 32cm section controllers on the strip are the strips essentially dumb, can you swap out a dead section with a new section from working strip.

I have the 65 inch play gradient light strip that’s died on the last 32cm section (kinked ribbon) can I remove this replace with working section of 32cm from a working strip. Reset the controller and the new section would be reassigned it’s place on the strip and function in its new position.

(I obviously understand the housing would not be factory anymore and would require a DIY fix but willing to entertain options.)


Reset gradient strip.
