It feels like half an eternity, but it’s only been three and a half years since Philips Hue launched its first outdoor products. In June 2018, the Calla base light launched alongside the Lily garden spotlight. Now, in spring 2022, one of the founding members of the Hue Outdoor family is available in a new look: the Hue Calla with a stainless steel housing.
A while ago, I introduced you to the Philips Hue Xamento, the first “colourful” bathroom light from Philips Hue. With a price of up to 259.99 euros, it is certainly not a cheap affair. Today, in cooperation with Click-Licht.de, I would like to introduce you to another new ceiling light for the bathroom, which is aimed at all those who can manage with white light tones in the shower or when brushing their teeth.
After the successful installation last year, I would like to give you a few impressions of the Philips Hue Enrave ceiling light today. It comes as a classic White Ambiance product with a dimmer switch and is one of the new releases from last autumn. Philips Hue had promised the sales launch at the end of the year and also kept it – although some models of the Enrave are still quite poorly available.
Today I would like to take an in-depth look at the new Philips Hue Xamento. It is the first bathroom ceiling light by Philips Hue that is equipped with White and Color Ambiance technology. This means that in addition to various shades of white, the Xamento ceiling light is also the first of its kind to be able to display all 16 million colours.
At the end of the month, Philips Hue will launch another new Gradient product: The Philips Hue Play Gradient Light Tube. It is an LED tube that will be available in a total of four different versions: An 87.7 centimetre small “Compact” version in white or black for 179.99 euros and a 137.7 centimetre long “Large” version in the same colours for 199.99 euros each.
I don’t really know who comes up with the names for new products at Signify in Eindhoven. After the Aurelle LED panel has been available for several years in four different versions and with White Ambiance technology, the ceiling light is now also available in two models with White and Color Ambiance.
Almost exactly one month ago I introduced you to the large Hue Gradient Signe floor lamp, today I would like to take a look at the small model together with you. How does the Philips Hue Gradient Signe table lamp perform in everyday life and what are the changes compared to the previous model?
After I already took a look at the new big Philips Hue Gradient Signe for you yesterday, today we continue with the next new release. I reviewed the new Philips Hue Ambiance Gradient Lightstrip for you. It is the first real light strip from Philips Hue that can display multiple colours at the same time – if we forget about the Play Gradient Lightstrip for the TV.
After I was able to announce yesterday that Philips Hue has activated the new gradient functionality in its app, I can now finally introduce you to the first new product that can create a colour gradient: The Philips Hue Gradient Signe floor lamp. I was allowed to try out the black model for you, a white version is also available as an alternative.
Shortly after the introduction of the Philips Hue Filament bulbs, I had to listen to my wife saying: “The light is far too yellow.” No wonder, because the classic lamps were previously only available as Philips Hue White with a fixed colour temperature of 2,100 Kelvin. That’s pretty warm light. This week, Philips Hue officially expanded its product portfolio and now offers all five models of the Filament lamp as White Ambiance.
