    New Philips Hue Festavia string lights offer a personalised lighting experience during the holiday season  

    • Create the perfect ambiance inside your home for the holidays and special occasions
    • Enjoy the new Sparkle effect and new Scattered style


    Guildford, UK – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, launches a new product that is much anticipated by users from all over the world: Philips Hue Festavia string lights. With the holiday season just around the corner, the Festavia string lights will light up users’ homes and create a cosy ambiance inside for the holidays and special occasions. 

    The Philips Hue Festavia string lights feature 250 mini smart LEDs along a 20-meter cord, offering plenty of flexibility to decorate your Christmas tree, staircase, or any area in your home. No more crawling under the Christmas tree to turn the lights on or off – with the Festavia string lights, you can dim and brighten the lights, change colour, turn lights on and off, set timers and schedules and more, all within the Hue app. What’s more, users can choose several colour points to create a gradient light effect along the string, bringing the colours to life. As with all Hue products, the Festavia string lights work in harmony with other Philips Hue lights in the space. They can also be synced with music using the Spotify and Samsung SmartThings integration, allowing the lights to flash, dim, and brighten along with your favorite song or playlist.


    New features: the Sparkle effect and the Scattered style

    Along with the Festavia string lights, new features are available in the Hue app. The new Sparkle effect makes each light on the string twinkle, creating an extra festive look. For a cosier setting users can of course choose the existing Candle or Fireplace effect. Adding to this, with Festavia comes a new style for users to select: Scattered. While the existing Linear style produces a seamless gradient of colour from one end of the string to the other, the Scattered style spreads up to five colours randomly along the string for a colourful, festive experience.

    As the world leader in smart lighting, we are constantly innovating to expand the ways users can experience lighting in their homes. We are very proud to present our new smart string lights, an innovation that a lot of users from all over the world have been waiting for. With Philips Hue Festavia string lights, anyone can create a personal lighting experience during the festive season. Homes will light up like never before.”
