Signify have announced several new and updated Philips Hue products, changing your cooking and dining experience, enabling you to highlight specific objects and making smart lighting even more accessible. The new and updated products include a brighter standard bulb, a new family of indoor ceiling fixtures, an updated Philips Hue light strip, an updated Philips Hue Bloom, and additions to the Bluetooth-capable Philips Hue White ambiance indoor range of fixtures.
The new powerful Philips Hue White A21 bulb allows users to light up an entire room thanks to the bulb’s high light output of 1600 lumen (equivalent to a traditional 100W bulb). It is the perfect bulb to properly illuminate the kitchen while cooking, but it also offers wireless dimming to create the perfect ambiance while having dinner. The new A21 bulb is also great for illuminating a functional area such as a garage, where consumers can use it to welcome them home.
The new Philips Hue Centris is a unique and innovative family of White and Color Ambiance LED spot-ceiling lights that have been designed to create a powerful light. The diffused ceiling light illuminates the whole room, while adjustable and focused accent lights highlight objects. Each light can be set and controlled individually, and the spots — with 350-degree rotation — can be easily positioned.
The Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus has always been customizable, allowing you to extend or cut it to the perfect size — but now, with this updated Hue light strip, you can reuse cut-off pieces or attach one light strip to another with the included connector. Additionally, the new Hue light strip now features Bluetooth capability which makes it easy to install and enjoy, even for consumers that are new to the Philips Hue system and do not (yet) own a bridge.
The iconic Philips Hue Bloom table lamp has also gotten an upgrade with richer colours and a remarkable improvement for the white light which is boosted up to 500lm and delivers a consistent experience with the rest of the Hue range (colour temperature can be tuned from warm white [2000K] to cool daylight [6500k]. The updated product is Bluetooth enabled, making it a true plug-and-play product and thus a perfect starting point for consumers who want to try the Philips Hue smart lighting system. The compact and modern design makes the Hue Bloom a great addition to any room, enabling consumers to play with (indirect) light, paint their walls with millions of colours and create a perfect ambiance for any moment. The new Bloom can also be deep dimmed (minimum level below 1%), so it can be used as a perfect nightlight.
To make smart lighting even more accessible and offer a simple way to set the mood with light, Signify is also introducing updated Bluetooth-enabled Philips Hue White Ambiance indoor light fixtures. The range includes spots, ceiling and wall lights, pendants, table lamps, and panel lights.
