Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, unveils a new range of Philips Hue smart lighting products and app features, from unique design options to complement home decor and create the perfect ambiance, to more immersive entertainment experiences for gaming and music.
New launches include a striking range of contemporary style bulbs available in three distinctive shapes, a new gradient lightstrip specifically designed for PC monitors to bring the ultimate light experience to PC gaming and a new Mimic presence automation to the Hue app for more peace of mind when you’re away. To further enhance immersive lighting in terms of gaming and enjoying music, Philips Hue has teamed up with exciting new partners, ensuring an even more seamless experience.
The new Philips Hue Lightguide bulbs, with their striking and contemporary design, bring eye-catching modern style along with all the smart light functionality of Philips Hue. Available in three shapes — large globe, ellipse, and triangular — the Lightguide bulbs house a distinctive inner tube that diffuses light in any color, while their reflective, glossy finish makes them shine even brighter.
Lightguide bulbs are designed to be a statement piece that will complement the decor of any modern home and blend seamlessly with any of your favorite Philips Hue light scenes. To make them a real centerpiece, Lightguide bulbs can be matched with their very own specially designed pendant cord and metal holder. Sold separately, the fabric-wrapped cord and holder are available in black or white.
Moving from the contemporary to the traditional, the vintage-style Philips Hue Filament candle bulb will be available in White ambiance, making it possible to choose from thousands of shades of dimmable warm-to-cool light.
The new Philips Hue Mimic presence automation in the Hue app makes it appear like someone’s always home. It’s designed to safeguard your home with light and help give you peace of mind when you’re away. This specialized automation turns your lights on and off automatically at times when you usually use them, and in the Rooms you select. You can select which lights you want to automate, and choose whether to have the lights turn on or off continuously during the daytime or only when it’s dark outside.
“At Philips Hue, we believe the continued integration of smart lighting and home entertainment is increasingly relevant to our users, whether they’re gaming, watching TV, or listening to music. With our new products and app features, we continue to offer a more immersive and user-friendly entertainment experience. We also recognize that our users are design-conscious and so we strive to bring them new, exciting, and elegant lighting products that complement their home and give the opportunity to personalize the ambiance.” Jasper Vervoort, Business Leader Philips Hue at Signify.
One of the main advantages of the Philips Hue outdoor range is in fact that of being able to configure the lights by releasing all your creativity. In fact, you can choose the most suitable atmosphere for every occasion – a party with many guests, a romantic dinner or a moment of relaxation on a summer night. All this thanks to the dimming of the color and the light level, to the routine setting thanks to the dedicated app and much more to always arrive in a well-lit and welcoming home.
Philips Hue is in fact also ideal for always being welcome upon returning, being able to automatically turn on the lights in the guardroom and in the driveway upon arrival. At the same time, Philips Hue can help you feel safer outdoors by ensuring peace of mind even in the dark, as well as discouraging unwanted guests – especially in a period like summer vacation away from home.
