Philips has introduced a range of new Hue lights and fixtures that are designed to go all over your home, including a couple that we’ve already seen in leaks, like an outdoor lightstrip and a bathroom mirror.
The general, overwhelming theme is that Philips wants to be everywhere in your house, inside and outside. Although I immediately think of Hue bulbs as the product line’s defining feature, Philips no longer needs the literal bulbs to round out its portfolio. Some of these products use LEDs or have no replaceable bulbs at all. Instead, Philips is trying to build a brand around “lighting,” rather than just a collection of light bulbs.
With that, here are the new 2018 offerings.
