Obviously, IFA might not be happening this year, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t seeing some new announcements from our favorite gadget makers.
Philips has you covered if you’ve been looking for new smart lights to install in your home. This year’s assortment includes everything from light tubes and floor lamps to candles and ceiling lights, so there’s something for everyone.
Brightness and gradients are the two main themes to take away from these Hue items. A couple of these goods, including the ambiance gradient light strip and a few 1,100-lumen bulbs, were seen in leaks earlier this summer.
The ambiance gradient light strip starts at $70 for a 1m extension, while the gradient tube will run you $180 for a compact model and $200 for a large when it hits store shelves on January 18th. Both of these announcements were made today, yet they merely scratch the surface of Philips’ 2021 offering.
The popularity of last year’s Hue Play strip inspired the current line of gradient lights. The company also has a new Hue Play gradient light tube, in addition to the leaked light strip.
It mixes numerous colors into a single package and is designed to sit above or below your television. Gradient lighting has also been added to the Signe floor and table lamps, making them ideal for blending into the background of your house without bringing attention to themselves.
The improved Signe lamps will be available starting October 12th for $200 for the table lamp and $300 for the floor lamp.
Philips announced the addition of a pair of brand-new goods to its portfolio. The first is a new White Filament candle bulb with an E14 base, comparable to the present E12 model. It has a starting price of $30 and is available right now.
Meanwhile, in January, a new Infuse ceiling light will be released, allowing you to finally realize your dream of having an entire home lit entirely by Hue lights.
A new set of dynamic lighting sequences is coming to the Hue app to match with all of its new lighting devices. This new model runs continuously throughout the day, gradually changing the brightness and color temperature to reflect the sun’s movement. It’ll be out this fall, along with the new Spotify sync, which was also revealed today.
