Whether you need a welcoming warm light in the hallway, a decorative color bulb in the bedroom, or a bright light for the kitchen, the introduction of the E14 candle bulb means Philips Hue can now be used in over 80% of light sockets commonly used in households around the world.
“The candle has been one of the most requested products by Philips Hue customers. We’ve spent time ensuring it is of the highest quality and available in both white ambiance and white and color ambiance. It is an important next step to ensure seamless integration in all rooms, giving you the freedom to personalize lighting throughout your home,” says Sridhar Kumaraswamy, Business Leader Connected Home Systems at Philips Lighting.
The E14 candles are commonly used in decorative lamps often found in the bedroom. When controlled by the Philips Hue app, white ambiance can support a better night’s sleep, by slowly dimming down before bed and, in the morning, wake you up gently as the light gradually brightens.
The Philips Hue white and color ambiance E14 candles can be synced with your music, TV or games and be controlled via your smartphone, switch, wearables or other smart accessories. Philips Hue works with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, Google Home, Nest, Samsung SmartThings as well as other smart home devices.
The Hue candle light bulb is a 40W equivalent E14 – 470 lumen at 4000 kelvin – and is available in white ambiance, providing a broad spectrum of white light; or white and color ambiance, with a range of more than 16 million colors. Both bulbs feature deep dimming from warm white to cool daylight with a 2200k – 6500k color temperature range. This new bulb joins the current Philips Hue range of bulb forms, which includes: E26, A19/E27, B22, GU-10 spot light and BR30.
