Lifx has just announced several new HomeKit-compatible products at IFA 2019, including filament bulbs and a multi-input switch.

Lifx joins the Philips Hue range with new filament style smart bulbs, although in the Lifx style, they connect directly via Wi-Fi and do not depend on an added hub or bridge.

The new Lifx filament bulbs come in two models, one with a spiral center and the other with a vintage spiral center. They are fully controllable and dimmable via the Lifx application, via HomeKit or the virtual assistant of the user.

In addition, Lifx launches a second candelabra-style bulb. This is next to the candle color previously announced. The new white candle to heat has an adjustable light output to warm.

Finally, Lifx unveiled its new controller, the Lifx switch. Lifx Switch is a joint venture between Lifx and Buddy Technologies, which acquired Lifx earlier this year.

"We are excited to launch LIFX Switch on the market - a smart switch that looks like a regular switch and works as it should," said Marc Alexander, LIFX CTO and Founder. "This product brings together the best of the new Buddy group, but brings us even closer to our goal or our parity with it."

The controller fully supports HomeKit as well as the Lifx application and has four individual controls with full customization. Each of the four switches can be customized with a preferred backlight.

Candle Color, previously announced, is expected to be released in the United States in October. The switch and Lifx filament will not be available until the first quarter of 2020 and Candle Warm to White is also scheduled for early 2020.
