The Philips Hue app-controlled lighting items were among the initial “Net of Things” products we covered right here at TUAW, and the item line has actually become rather popular.
Now the firm has actually revealed three brand-new products in the Hue line, consisting of a brand-new lower-cost design.
Hue Lux is that inexpensive model, a white-only model of the Hue bulb that can serve as a smart LED bulb that can be dimmed from the Tone app or any of over 100 third-party applications. A starter package with two bulbs and a bridge priced at US$ 99.95 will be readily available in the second half of 2014. Each extra bulb will certainly be $ 39.95.
Additionally, Philips revealed 3D-printed table and pendant luminaires that will certainly be tailored. No rate was noted for these works of art, which you can see in the following slideshow:
Nice, aren’t they? I’m viewing some brand-new dangling app-happy lights in my house in the near future. The last product is a new operator for the Shade line called Touch for those times when you do not would like to dig your mobile phone or tablet out to manage to regulate a lighting.
According to Philips you can place your own color/intensity developments from the Tone application onto the 4 buttons of Hue Tap. The controller is special in that it utilizes no batteries– as an alternative, it is powered from the kinetic power presented by your finger taps.
For those that intend to play at the world of Philips Hue lighting without investing an arm and a leg, the Lux is a delightfully addition. And for interior developers, the 3D luminaires supply a fashionable means to include app-controlled multi-color LED illumination to houses, hotels, restaurants and offices.
