Bridgewater, NJ – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting unveils a new range of Philips Hue smart lighting products that offers even more flexibility, control, and design options for the home. New product launches in the US include an exciting first for Philips Hue — the first portable, rechargeable lamp designed for indoor and outdoor use. Additionally, a new smart switch in sleek black or white brings intuitive dimming for the first time by turning the switch’s dial. It also includes the ability to set scenes and assign rooms with each of its four buttons. With daily wellbeing in mind, a new Wake up automation in the Philips Hue app brings a personalized and natural Sunrise effect to the bedroom. The automation is designed to give users the sensation of waking up outdoors under a vast morning sky. It’s complemented by the new Philips Hue Signe gradient lamp now available in oak.
Design and customize smart lighting like never before
Staying with flexibility and design, now a smart light can be taken with you from the living room to the patio table, or anywhere inside and outside your home with the new Philips Hue Go portable table lamp. The portable table lamp is designed for indoor and outdoor use and features a silicone grip, making it easy to carry wherever you need light. The Hue Go portable table lamp offers up to 48 hours of battery life and is easily recharged using the included charging base. Whether you’re reading in bed or having dinner on the patio, the lamp’s button lets you cycle through preset light scenes to create just the right mood.
Filling your home with colorful smart lighting just got easier with new generations of the Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance can downlight and White Ambiance can downlight. Generation two of the White and Color Ambiance downlight now features an increased lumen output of up to 1100 lumens, while generation three of the White Ambiance downlight now offers up to 850 lumens. The new generations of downlights are bright enough to fill any room with light — they can also dim down low to set the perfect atmosphere in your home. Now you can choose from two sizes of smart recessed lights, which are also available in multipacks for the first time. Both versions are available with a 4-inch can and a 5-/6-inch can, offering the full range of white and color light. Philips Hue downlights are easy to install and unlock a wealth of benefits, from hands-free voice control to automations that personalize your daily lighting needs.
New Sunrise wake-up style enhances daily wellbeing
Smart lighting continues to enhance wellbeing at home and help with daily routines with the new Sunrise wake-up style. The new Sunrise effect with its rich, colorful transition through blue to soft orange light, mimics the sun appearing over the horizon — giving you a relaxing wake-up call in the morning or at any time of day. The Sunrise wake-up style can be found in the Philips Hue app under the Wake up Automations Tab for Hue Bridge users and the Routines Tab for Bluetooth users. The wake-up style can be customized for duration and time of day. Users of the existing wake-up style — now called Fade to Bright — can upgrade their wake-up experience by simply selecting Sunrise from the edit screen of the Automation.
The Sunrise wake-up style is optimized for all gradient lamps and will be launched along with the new Philips Hue Signe gradient lamp in oak. The Signe gradient lamp in oak, with its slender profile and a natural wood-toned base, is designed to be both a statement piece and subtle accent for the bedroom.
Set and adjust light scenes instantly and effortlessly
Finally, Philips Hue introduces a new smart accessory, the Philips Hue Tap dial switch, giving users even more personalized control of their smart lights around the home. The Tap dial switch has four buttons, and each button can be set to control smart lights in up to three separate rooms or zones around the home. Tap a button to choose or adjust any light scene instantly. The Tap dial also comes with intuitive dimming control — the faster or slower you turn the dial, the faster or slower your smart lights dim or brighten. Additionally, the switch has a sleek, matte design in black or white, matching with decor anywhere around the home. It can also be used as a handy remote control or even mounted magnetically onto any metal surfaces.
Experience Philips Hue — virtually!
Prospective and existing Philips Hue users can now explore (and play around with!) the full suite of features Hue has to offer inside the Philips Hue app — perfect for those planning to start their smart lighting journey.
The new Demo mode can be found in the Explore tab of the app and offers a range of virtual experiences that demonstrate how Philips Hue smart lighting can transform the home and enhance the daily routine. The demos explore the Ambiance, Entertainment, and Feel More Secure themes, with a special section dedicated to Hue accessories. The demos will continue to be updated and enriched in the app with new themes, helping future users to visualize the Hue experience.
