We like Philips Hue bulbs right here, however the corporate must promote greater than bulbs that final eternally. So, now the corporate is increasing into dear (if horny) lighting with a ton of recent bulletins.
We’ve already observed a little bit of Philips’ new lighting when the corporate by chance introduced its out of doors lightstrips final month. Now we know the way a lot the ones mild strips will value: $90 for the 7-foot type, and $160 for the 16-foot type. That’s more or less consistent with the indoor type, which prices $90 for relatively not up to 7 ft, plus $30 for each and every 40-inch extension. The elements proofing makes for a pleasant addition with out including a lot additional value.
Past what we already knew, the corporate may be launching a chain of sunshine fixtures and equipment. The Ascend assortment will come with a wall mild for $99, a desk lamp for $129, a pendant placing mild for $149, and a status flooring mild for $179. Every of those will send with both Philip’s E12 or A19 bulb.
There’s additionally the Adore assortment which seems like the very best good mild sequence for Narcissus. This sequence brings Philips Hue’s good mild magic to the toilet with a lighted self-importance reflect for $249 that may show a spread of white lighting, which is greater than only a nice-to-have if you wish to have to be sure you glance your best possible within the morning. The corporate may be launching a rest room ceiling mild for $179.
The corporate may be launching the Enchant pendant mild for $99 which makes use of an E26 bulb and hangs out of your ceiling and launches on August 20th. In the end, there’s a ceiling mild known as the Being Pendant for $249 which is able to illuminate in quite a lot of sun shades of white and, in contrast to most of the different fixtures, doesn’t include any bulb. If the LEDs on this mild ever pass out, you’ll have to interchange all of the unit. That’s an expensive proposition for such a dear unit.
That final bit is a bit of being concerned. Whilst LED bulbs final a truly, truly very long time, they may be able to nonetheless smash in the end. No person’s keen to interchange their dear Philips Hue bulbs, however it’s more straightforward to interchange a bulb than a complete mild fixture. It’s herbal for Philips to amplify to lighting fixtures now that they have got a strong lineup of bulbs, however we’re hoping there gained’t be too robust of a push against lighting fixtures with out replaceable bulbs.
You’ll be able to take a look at extra pictures of the brand new Philips Hue fixtures at The Verge’s put up under.
