Sylvania has added a new LED Flex Strip and Soft White Bulb to the HomeKit-compatible Smart+ line of hubless lighting products it began last year with the Smart Multicolor Bulb. The Soft White Bulb ($26) is quite a bit cheaper than the multicolor model, but obviously lacks the color changing abilities. The Flex Strip ($60) is a bit pricier, but still comes in well below the $90 Philips’ Hue LightStrip Plus. The Full Color Bulb will be available on Amazon starting October 21, and both the Flex Strip and Soft White Bulb will be available on October 23. The company also has a smart plug, but that device is only listed as “coming soon.”
