Lighting company LIFX, known for its range of smart lighting products, today announced the LIFX Beam, its latest decorative smart light.

Beam is a set of thin, rectangular lights that are meant to be used for accent lighting. There are six white plastic beam lights per kit, along with a power pack and 1 illuminated corner, which can be used to create "L" shaped designs when attached to a wall.

Like other LIFX lights, the Beam supports 16 million colors along with a range of white shades. There are 10 blended light zones per beam, so each one can light up in a multitude of colors.

Colors can be selected using the LIFX app, and there's also built-in HomeKit support so the Beam can be controlled via Siri and added to Scenes with other HomeKit products. LIFX products connect to a home setup via WiFi and do not require a bridge.

LIFX added HomeKit support to its most recent line of light bulbs in September, and just last week introduced the LIFX Tile, a modular square-shaped accent lighting system.

LIFX Beam can be pre-ordered from the LIFX website for $199.99.

Just figured out that :apple: have broken Homekit remote access somewhere along the line with iOS11, solution is :apple:TV has to be connected on wifi or else feck all works, even to get to that I had to disconnect it from ethernet & manually key a 30-digit passcode as it the :apple:TV didn't recognise the iPhone. Out of sheer frustration I swore a few times at the phone, but hey it's only lights, god help folk with locks, think different? :apple: sure does!:eek:

I work for a competitor of LIFX, also in Australia. I can tell you, it is not cheap to produce these products, especially as a small company.
The price will come down eventually...

Yeah, but because of that you need a power cable.
You’d need a power cable regardless.
