Philips Hue candle lights have been announced.
Industry-leading Philips Hue has extended its lineup of smart lighting products to include E14/B39 bulbs. Known as candle or intermediate bulbs, these are suitable for small lamps.
According to Philips Light’s Sridhar Kumaraswamy:
The candle has been one of the most requested products by Philips Hue customers. We’ve spent time ensuring it is of the highest quality and available in both white ambiance and white and color ambiance. It is an important next step to ensure seamless integration in all rooms, giving you the freedom to personalize lighting throughout your home.
The new bulbs are set to arrive in Europe next month and in the United States before the end of the year. They feature 470 lumens (40W equivalent) and will be available in white ambiance or white and color ambiance. Both bulbs feature deep dimming from warm white to cool daylight with a 2200k – 6500k color temperature range.
This new bulb joins the current Philips Hue range of bulb forms, which includes: E26, A19/E27, B22, GU-10 spotlight, and BR30.
It’s been an active week on the smart home front. Earlier this week, iLuv began selling the first Wi-Fi-enabled light bulb that works with Apple HomeKit that doesn’t require a separate hub. In the coming days, Amazon Alexa is arriving on the official Amazon.com app.
