LEDVANCE today announced the launch of a new HomeKit-enabled Sylvania Smart+ Soft White A19 Filament Bulb, the first filament bulb to come equipped with HomeKit.

Filament bulbs are often preferred to standard bulbs in lights where the design of the bulb itself is featured. The new Sylvania bulb allows customers who are looking for a retro filament bulb to get that look without sacrificing smart functionality.

The Sylvania Smart+ Soft White A19 Filament Bulb provides up to 650 lumens of 2700K light, equivalent to a 40W bulb, and it can be dimmed.

Sylvania's HomeKit-enabled light bulbs work with the Home app and can integrate with other HomeKit-enabled products. They also respond to Siri commands and can be added to scenes and other automations.

The new Sylvania Smart+ Soft White A19 Filament Bulb can be pre-ordered on Amazon.com for $31.99 starting today, with orders set to ship out in the spring of 2018.

LEDVANCE's Sylvania Smart+ Indoor Flex Strip Full Color ($59.99) and the Soft White A19 Bulb ($25.99), both of which feature HomeKit support, are also now available for purchase on Amazon.

Not really intended as a home-wide replacement -- as the article points out, this is basically a decorative bulb for fixtures where it's prominently featured.

My block list is getting full today. This look like hipster bulbs or something you'd put in a 1920s home. No thanks.
Can you block me too please? My opinion differs from yours.

Why are we releasing new filament bulbs? Less efficient, ugly and for some reason really expensive.

I've been full LED for 2 years in every light in the house except the oven light. can't imagine going back.
Uhhh... They are LED?

I'm astonished that someone would block me based on my polite reply explaining that there are different personal tastes when it comes to lighting styles. I responded to what I thought it was a genuine question and took the time to illustrate my answer with pictures as examples.

Apparently some people think so highly of their own opinion that they get offended by anyone holding a different opinion. Blocking someone for expressing a polite, contrary opinion seems pretty excessive but he can block me too - I don't care.
