(Pocket-lint) – Signify has announced several new products and features coming soon to the Philips Hue range.
Highlights include a few firsts for the smart lighting brand – a portable table lamp and the fully customizable track lighting system.
The Philips Hue Go table lamp is designed to be placed and moved anywhere, indoors or outdoors. It features a silicone grip and provides up to 48 hours of battery life between charges.
It also comes with a charging base and different preset lighting moods can be cycled through just by using the button on the lamp.
It will be available from late summer in the UK, priced at £129.99.
The Philips Hue Perifo track lighting system is a new line from the brand. It is made up of individual rails that interlock to form a customizable rail that can be ceiling or wall mounted. You can then click your smart lights in the arranged track, to position them as you wish – whether they are spotlights, pendant lights, light bars or light tubes.
The Rail starts at £44.99, with a PSU available for £84.99 and Perifo supported lights ranging from £99.99 to £259.99. The system will also be released at the end of the summer.
To accompany these products and existing Philips Hue bulbs and lights, a new Hue Tap Dial Switch is available now for £44.99. It has four buttons to control up to three rooms or areas of the house. There is a dimming control function available, with the speed at which you turn the dial adjusting the lighting respectively,
Two other Hue Signe lights (non-portable) in oak are also available – one for a table top, one for the floor. While the Philips Hue app gains a new Sunrise alarm clock style.
It changes from blue to soft orange light to wake you up calmly in the morning.
And finally, the Hue app now comes with a demo mode so potential customers can try out some of its features before adding a Hue solution to their home.
