Smart bulbs and buttons for efficient lighting
Signify has unveiled a suite of new bulbs and smart accessories from smart lighting brand Philips Hue at a special event during IFA, including filament bulbs, smart plugs, smart buttons and more, to help bring connected lighting to all homes.
“We’re committed to making connected lighting more accessible and want to provide people with greater choice when it comes to the connectivity, control, ambiance and aesthetics of their lights,” said Jasper Vervoort, Business Leader Home Systems and Luminaires at Signify. “We are proud to introduce a variety of new and updated products including the new Philips Hue Smart plug, Philips Hue Smart button and the updated Philips Hue Go portable smart lamp with Bluetooth capability, in addition to our first-ever Philips Hue Filament bulb.”
The filament bulb
This bulb aims to combine the convenience of smart lighting with the aesthetics of the popular Edison-style bulb with the new collection of amber-coated smart filament bulbs from Philips Hue.
Available in three shapes (availability dependent on location), the Philips Hue Filament bulbs provide the same control, functionality and ambiance capabilities offered by the Philips Hue ecosystem but with a different design.
Smart accessories for a smarter home
Two new smart accessories allow you to connect and control your home lighting system like never before. The Philips Hue Smart plug allows you to connect any lamp, even one in which you cannot place a smart bulb, to your Philips Hue system.
The Philips Hue Smart button, a small and unassuming button with a magnetic base, lets you control your smart lights with just one touch and customise it to your needs.
Portable smart lamp
The updated Philips Hue Go portable smart lamp gives users broader control thanks to its additional Bluetooth capability and improved battery life. With the updated Hue Go, Signifiy hopes that customers can bring portable smart light to any destination and control it with the free Hue Bluetooth app.
The new Fugato and Argenta build-on and Philips Hue White and colour ambiance Centura recessed spot lights add a touch of modern to any room, and the new white and colour ambiance GU10 spot light bulbs allow you to bring colourful light to your new or existing built-in spots and recessed light fixtures.
The E14 candle bulbs are now available in White, creating more choice when selecting smart lighting.
Extended range for bathroom lighting
The extended range of Philips Hue Adore bathroom light fixtures offers more choice to create the preferred lighting in the bathroom.
With the new recessed spot starter pack and a large and small version of a slender, horizontal mirror light, all of which include a handy Philips Hue Dimmer switch, customers can set just the right light for any moment of day using the four light recipes.
