In June, Philips Hue presented several new products, including the new Hue Centris ceiling lamp and the new generation of Hue Bloom. After the new outdoor releases in January, the second batch followed relatively early – which leads me to believe that there could well be something in September or October.
When Philips Hue launched its filament lamps last autumn, I was very impressed. Later, I realized that the fixed colour temperature of 2,100 Kelvin is not optimal for all purposes. In our open living, dining and cooking area, the warm white light above the dining table simply didn’t match the cooler light in the kitchen.
Last year in August, the Dutch brand Innr was the first manufacturer to launch filament lamps with ZigBee connection. In September, Philips Hue followed suit with three filament lamps of its own, and now Innr is back at the helm.
In September, Philips Hue launched its first filament lamps which look really stylish and high-quality compared to the competition. However, Philips only has three different models on the market, all of which are equipped with the same filament. It has to be said that the market for filament lamps offers a lot more and much nicer alternatives.
Last week, I drew your attention to an innovation from LIFX. The first E14 candle lamp is not just a small illuminant but in contrast to the competition it can display different colours and colour gradients. As the colleagues from HomeKitNews have now discovered, LIFX can also be used in a classic way.
Yesterday we presented the official information, today we will show you the new lamps in a video. We have both new filament lamps on hand and gave them a first look. Both lamps are already available and can be ordered online. The golden E27 lamp costs 16.99 Euro, a double pack costs 29.99 Euro.
