This week, numerous documents from Philips Hue were published by the FCC. I could already reveal to you that they are working on new E27 light bulbs with filament technology. The documents mention “Tone Filament” and “HWA” several times – and anyone who knows a bit about Philips Hue knows what this abbreviation means: Hue White Ambiance.
Just last week I was able to announce that Philips Hue is already offering a modified version of its E14 teardrop bulb in Japan, which was launched as Hue White only earlier this month. Equipped with a comparable E17 base, the Japanese are already enjoying the benefits of a technically much better White Ambiance teardrop bulb, where the colour temperature can be freely adjusted from 2,200 to 6,500 Kelvin.
When Philips Hue introduced its extra small and compact E14 lamp and the new extra large filament lamps with E27 base earlier this month, the calls from the Hue community were once again heard: We wish for filament lamps with E14 base. As new entries at the FCC approval authority prove, which were first discovered before the colleagues from Smarthome Assistant, Ikea is working on a corresponding solution.
Philips Hue already presented new products in January and June. A few weeks ago I was able to tell you that this was probably not all. Now I can present you the new products that Signify will introduce this autumn. I expect them to launch in September.
