Philips Hue “LightGuide” Bulbs to Include Glow-Stick Design

According to the most recent leak, Philips Hue will increase the number of HomeKit-compatible accessories in its inventory. The business appears to be getting ready to release three new smart lights under the “Philips Hue Lightguide” branding, which it describes as having “unique forms to match your style”. Even though they have a very sleek appearance, they are expensive.

These new smart lights from Philips Hue have not yet been launched, but they have already appeared through Amazon in Germany and were discovered by Hueblog.com. The new E27 Lightguide series is described as follows by Philips Hue:

Philips Hue Lightguide LED bulbs give off a bright, brilliantly coloured light that you can dim to the perfect level in millions of shades of colour and white to create the right mood in any room of your home. Philips Hue Lightguide LED bulbs feature a distinctive inner tube and a reflective, glossy finish that gives them a special light.

The transparent glass bodies of the Lightguide devices have an inbuilt bulb as part of their design. The lamps’ maximum brightness is 500 lumens at 2,700 Kelvin, supporting both white light and color ambiance. Three alternative sizes and configurations for the Lightguide bulbs are displayed on the Amazon page.

These lights are equipped out of the box with Bluetooth and Zigbee in terms of smart technology. You can also control Philips Hue lights using Apple’s Home app, HomeKit, and Siri if you have one of the Philips Hue Smart Bridge add-ons.

The smart Lightguide lights have no stated release date, although Hueblog predicts that they could appear some time around September. They are anticipated to be among Philips Hue’s most expensive smart lights ever; according to Amazon, prices start at 75 euros.
