International lighting solutions provider Signify has expanded its Philips Hue portfolio in the US. This expansion includes an outdoor light to further personalise gardens and porches, a new wall switch module that makes existing light switches smart, and a redesigned Philips Hue dimmer switch.
The outdoor set consists of the new Philips Hue Amarant linear wall wash light, which enables users to bathe outdoor walls with light to create the right ambiance in their yard no matter the season. The wall washing effect of vibrant light in millions of colours is intensified by the metal shield and spices up the look and feel of a blank wall in yards, patios, and terraces or on balconies.
The Amarant can be mounted on the floor or upside down on an overhanging roof to take outdoor lighting decoration to the next level. As part of the LowVolt luminaire collection, the Amarant is easy to install and extend with more fixtures to fully personalise the ambiance of an outdoor space.
The new Philips Hue wall switch module is the ideal addition to any Philips Hue set-up. Installed behind existing light switches, it allows users to turn their existing switch into a smart switch and ensures their smart lighting is always reachable.
Whether it is through the app or voice assistant, it ensures no more getting up from the couch to turn on the switches that a family member or house guest might have turned off. Additionally, in the Hue app, one can easily select light scenes and customise how the switch functions to personalise the ambiance even more.
This wall switch module is battery powered and has a minimum battery life of five years.
One of the most popular Philips Hue products has also been upgraded: the Philips Hue dimmer switch. The redesigned dimmer switch offers intuitive wireless control for Philips Hue lighting without using the app.
In addition to dimming or brightening the room, the dimmer switch lets users set their favourite light scenes or get the best light based on the time of day. One can attach it anywhere they like using the wall plate or place the dimmer switch on any magnetic surface. Whether it is on a refrigerator, a metal door frame or simply on a table, you and your house guests can always have easy access to control your smart lighting.
“We keep on expanding the Philips Hue portfolio to offer the easiest smart lighting to personalise the ambiance in every space in the house, whether it’s indoors or outdoors. With the new switches we are taking yet another step in offering true convenience and intuitive control,” states Signify Philips Hue business leader Jasper Vervoort.
