A new wall light, the Philips Hue Dymera, offers two beams of light that shine both up and down. The light, which supports both white shades and color, can illuminate large surfaces and is able to be used both indoors and out.

The Philips Hue Pendant Cord can be used with Hue Filament bulbs or the Hue Ellipse. 3D printed from 55 percent bio-circular material, the pendant cord comes in either black and white and can be purchased in two sizes.

For those with the Hue Perifo track lighting, there are new connector options. The T Connector allows rails to run in three directions, while the Flexible Connector allows rails to run in any direction and beyond 90-degree angles.

Signify is selling the Hue Go Portable Table Lamp in updated colors that include black with an orange grip and white with a teal grip. The silicone grips are designed to make it easier to move the lamp from place to place. The lamp is able to charge in three to four hours with the included charging stand, and the battery lasts for up to 48 hours.

Gotta love the toxicity around here

For people who do like Hue and don't mind the premium tag, this is great news, having more lighting options is a good thing in my book.

The irony of people complaining about expensive lighting products on a forum focused on expensive computing products is palpable…

I love Hue, and can afford them, but even I wait for them to go on sale (just like I do my Apple products).

Why after maaaaany years this stuff is still expensive and kind of unjustified to what they do? :(
Because the market supports this price.

Go try every single cheaper option and compare them. Hue is better than all of them.

I’m assuming you typed that on an Apple device. Ironic, no?

Lots of interesting options here! ?

I’m very impressed by Philips Hue, despite using basic elements of their lineup that date back a few years now.

Every bulb I’ve bought works as expected and with solid performance. They integrate with Apple Home so well and are very convenient even without use of the Hue app which brings additional functionality.

It’s great to see Philips both broadening the Hue catalogue but also giving more options within each product category.

I think there’s a sentiment around here of wanting aesthetic things without a high price tag… But the way things tend to work is that you can get ‘standard’ for lower expense, and ‘premium’ for greater outlay.

That's not the point.

> The premium I paid for with Philips is not justified. I have a few lamps that have lost one or more colors turning them useless or basically just dumb lamps. They only lasted 2 years, just days after the warranty expired.
> Controllers that you still need for normal visiting keep getting disconnected until you smash them a hundred times to recharge them.
> Automation gets broken as soon as there's an update. Either it's in Apple's Home app that suddenly wants me to buy a new Apple TV, syncing issues that break the settings, Shortcuts that changed the way they work, and don't even get me started with other hubs like Alexa creating a bazillion duplicates and not recognizing the right one.

Meanwhile, a cheap knockoff brand does the exact same with a fifth of the price. It doesn't work better, nor does it look more stylish. But at least you feel less frustrated when it breaks since it didn't cost that much to begin with.

The whole goal of home automation is to make everything work together, and in the simplest of ways since the competition is the dumb switch we've had for decades if not more. If you want to beat the convenience of just pressing a button it HAS to work simply and reliably.

The TV remote won because it allowed you to operate your TV in the same way as before, but from the couch. A net advantage. Smart home still makes you work way more than it should, and at a premium that is not worth it unless you're a gadget freak or an influencer paid to have them in the background.
