Signify, the parent company of Philips Hue, is committed to brightening up your home, and the latest deals should do just that. The Philips Hue Gradient LED Strip is a significant departure from previous LED strip offerings by adding addressable LEDs for your TV ̵
More Bluetooh lamps
In addition to the new and redesigned lights, Philips Hue has updated the Philips Hue E12 candelabra bulbs and the White Ambiance with Bluetooth radios. This is an extension of Signify’s efforts to lower the barrier to entry by giving you a hubless option.
These lamps are available now and cost $ 49.99 for a single candelabra bulb and $ 24.99 for a white ambience lamp. That’s only a few dollars more than the standard versions without Bluetooth.
However, adding Bluetooth isn’t all that happens to the Hue lineup. The new Philips Hue Play Gradient LightStrip is the company’s first strip with addressable LED lamps. For most strips, the entire row of LEDs is white, green, or any color. However, with individually addressable LEDs, you can control the color of each LED.
A new LED strip for your TV
To start with, Philips intends that you will use the Gradient LightStrip with your TV. It’s available in three sizes: 55 “for $ 199.99, 65” for $ 219.99, and 75 “for $ 239.99. If your TV doesn’t match these options, go for the next size, which is a 65-inch strip for a 70-inch TV.
The LED strip projects light at a 45 degree angle from the TV to cast ambient light onto the wall. You can connect it to the Philue Hue Sync PCapp or the Philips Hue Play HDMI sync box with the Hue Sync mobile app to strip sync with the content of your TV. The gradient strips will be released on October 16. You can pre-order them today from the Philips Hue website.
Light up your walls
In the Ambience category, Signify redesigned the Philips Hue Iris lamp for $ 99.99. The table lamp now offers stronger colors and the option to display in darker levels than before. So it can act as a night light if necessary.
The angle of the iris allows it to wash walls in light rather than direct lighting. The idea is to improve the ambience of the room (hence ambient lighting). You can control the new model via bluetooth or connect it to the Philis Hue hub for more smart home controls. According to Signify, the Iris table lamp will be released on October 19th.
