Signify the world leader in lighting, has unveiled its brand-new Philips Hue Filament collection, perfect for those who want to bring vintage style to their smart home. I’ve been a fan of Edison style bulbs for years, but i find the incandescent versions costly to run, I know there are LED Edison style bulbs on the market already however they are anything but “smart”.
With a design that is reminiscent of traditional, incandescent Edison-style bulbs, the smart LED lights allow you to easily create the perfect ambience. Effortlessly set the mood in a room with the collection’s warm white light (2100K, 550 lumens) and installation-free wireless dimming. The bulbs’ beautiful shapes with their amber coating add elegance and style to any room — whether they are on or off.
The beauty of the Philips Hue ecosystem is you can start with a single bulb or connect multiple bulbs to easily set the perfect look and feel in your room. Control the collection instantly with the Philips Hue Bluetooth app, with a compatible voice device, or pair them with the Zigbee-based Philips Hue Bridge for ultimate control and to enjoy additional smart features. The Bridge provides access to the full Philips Hue ecosystem, including full home control of indoor and outdoor lights, away from home control, Philips Hue Entertainment and Friends of Hue, as well as third-party app compatibility.
“Our new Philips Hue Filament bulbs combine modern technology with vintage design,” says Jasper Vervoort, Business Leader Home Systems & Luminaries Philips Hue at Signify. “You can instantly recreate the feel of your favourite bistro or simply add visual style to your room. It’s simple to control and personalise your lighting with just a tap of your smartphone or with a voice command.”
