Philips has announced a new line of fixtures, new table lamps and a brand new type of bulb to expand its Hue White Ambiance line. The company’s Hue White Ambiance HomeKit-enabled lighting system allows for the color of a room’s lights to be changed from warmer to cooler in addition to being able to be dimmed, and Philips is adding a 40W-equivalent candle bulb ($30) to its existing slate of bulbs, available for pre-order starting in June before it begins arriving in stores in July. The company is also offering a brushed aluminum Being Flushmount light fixture and three different styles of the Fair fixture (Flushmount, Semi-flushmount and Suspension), all of which have Hue White Ambiance connected lighting technology built-in. New Wellner and Wellness lamps have also been added to expand the areas where a connected bulb can be of use. Philips said the new fixtures and lamps (starting at $100) are available for pre-order online now, but we haven’t seen them appear in the company’s store yet. The full line is expected to hit store shelves in mid-July.
