Signify today announced a trio of new Philips Hue lighting accessories. The band includes a 1600 lumen Hue bulb, a new Bluetooth Lightstrip Plus and a refreshed version of the Philips Hue Bloom table lamp. Enter below for details.
The new Philips Hue White A21 bulb was first rumored earlier this month, and the company has made it official. The new A21 bulb has a power of 1600 lumens, so if you find traditional Philips Hue bulbs a little too dim, this could be a great option for you. This is equivalent to a jump from a conventional 60W bulb to one of 100W.
Signify explains that the new Philips Hue White A21 bulb could be useful for fully illuminating areas such as the garage or kitchen. It will be available in July for $ 19.99:
The new, powerful Philips Hue White A21 bulb (available in late July, MSRP: $ 19.99) is the brightest bulb in the collection. With an output of 1600 lumens (equivalent to a traditional 100 W light bulb), it can completely illuminate a kitchen, garage or any other room. The smart light bulb also provides wireless dimming, so you can easily switch from functional to mood lighting with the touch of an app.
At this time, the brightest Philips Hue bulb is only available in white and it is unclear if there are plans for brighter colored bulbs in the future.
The next version is a new Bluetooth-enabled version of the Philips Hue Lighstrip Plus. This means that Hue Bridge does not need to work, although you will still need Bridge to access HomeKit support, remote access, Philips Hue Entertainment, and support for Friends of Hue and third-party applications.
Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus with Bluetooth, gives you colorful and smart light anywhere in your home. Place it along kitchen cabinets and stairs or highlight decorative pieces. You can customize the lightning by cutting it to the perfect size or by connecting up to eight Bluetooth Hue compatible extensions. You can also reuse cut pieces now so you can adjust the lightning to your room or décor. Lightstrip (2-meter MSRP base: $ 79.99; 1-meter extension: $ 24.99) will be available at Target starting this week and at additional retailers later this summer.
Finally, Signify has launched a new version of its Philips Hue Bloom table lamp, which will be available at the end of July for $ 69.99. This is an updated version of Hue Bloom, available for several years. It has a new white finish, richer colors, improved white light and an output of up to 500 lumens. The new Philips Hue Bloom can be adjusted from warm white to cold daylight. There is now Bluetooth support here as well.
