I have already reported about the new Philips Hue Perifo track system, especially my impressions around the external power supply turned out very positive. For me, the rail, which I currently have equipped with three spots, is a real problem solver in my kitchen. As a test, I have now inserted a Perifo pendant luminaire into the rail.
The Philips Hue Perifo track system was officially launched this week. The availability is still quite modest, but this should improve considerably in the course of the next few weeks. I have been using one of the available Perifo bundles for over a month now – and would like to give you a short summary today.
Today, the Philips Hue Perifo track system is officially launched. In the official Philips Hue online shop, numerous bundles are already listed, but you can’t order the Perifo sets and individual parts yet. Other retailers, such as Click-Licht.de, promise availability only in about four weeks. However, I did discover one interesting detail: The ceiling power supply of the Perifo track system has a small cap on the side that can be easily removed if you want to disconnect the power supply “externally”.
The secrecy at Philips Hue has once again worked extremely badly this half-year. Three new products have already been distributed on the internet before they were publicly announced. In the past years, Philips Hue has always presented its new products around the International Consumer Electronics Fair in Berlin. It can be assumed that this will also be the case in 2022.
We still have to be patient for about a month until the Perifo rail system by Philips Hue will be available in stores. After a first impression in June, I already had the opportunity to try out one of the sets. How it went with the installation, I would like to tell you today.
In late summer 2022, Philips Hue will launch its first own track system. Various starter sets starting at 649.99 euros can be configured with additional light sources and accessories so that you can create your very own lighting experience. Even though I have not yet been able to install the Perifo system in my home, I have already been able to gather the first impressions for you.
Finally the time has come: Philips Hue has introduced new products. As of today, the first new light sources and also a new switch are already available, and more new products are to be launched by late summer. And as I can already announce: What Philips Hue has shown today will not be all for the year 2022.
