In order to have a really smart house, you’ll need smart lights. These lights, which can change color with the touch of a button, are a must-have for any smart home setup. The new Philips Hue Perifo track lighting is a step up from Philips’ Hue smart light range, which arguably has mastered the trade.

Individual rails in Perifo’s new Hue collection combine to create fully programmable lighting tracks that can be used to illuminate an entire room or even an entire house. From color-changing spotlights to pendants, light bars, and tubes, the Perifo range allows you to assemble what amounts to a rig of smart lights all within a single Perifo track.


You may then adjust the lighting to match the ambiance of the room where the Perifo track is installed. A cool blue light bar may illuminate a beverages cupboard while a warm Hue bulb hovers above a workstation or kitchen table, for example.

In order to have complete control over the lighting in your home, you can choose the layout and length of the track as well as the lights to include.” Using the accompanying power supply unit, the track may be installed on the wall or ceiling and linked to a conventional outlet or existing cables,” Philips Hue stated. When you’ve chosen your favorite smart lights, it’s time to have some fun positioning them in the track.

Perifo connections start at £16.99 and some track lights cost as much as £259.99, so you have a lot of options when it comes to lighting and style. As of this writing, no US pricing information is available, but expect it to roughly mirror UK pricing.


With the new £44.99 Hue Tap dial switch, Philips Hue smart lights can be controlled even more precisely. All it takes is a few taps of the four-button unit in a smart house to control the lights in up to three different rooms or zones.

In addition, the dial function serves as a natural dimmer. There’s a physical representation of the Philips Hue mobile app, which is the Hue Tap dial. One of the most discreet smart lighting controllers, it comes in either black or white and has a matte finish.

The new Philips Hue Go portable table lamp is ideal for those who prefer to keep their smart illumination simple and unobtrusive.


The new Hue Go portable table lamp has been built for both indoor and outdoor use thanks to its 48-hour battery life and water and dust protection. Additionally, it has a built-in charging station that allows it to be recharged wirelessly.

On a nice night after the sun has set, this could be a success with those who prefer sipping cocktails in the fresh air on a patio or in a garden. The lamp will cost £129.99 in the UK and won’t be available until the “end of Summer,” which means it will miss the country’s warmest months.

Hue’s Sunrise wake-up style employs one or more smart lights to replicate the color and tone of a rising sun, providing users with “a peaceful wake-up call in the morning or at any time of day.”


It may be discovered in the Philips Hue app under the Wake up Automations Tab for Hue Bridge users and under the Routines Tab for Bluetooth users,” the company added. For the duration and the time of day, you can adjust the wake-up manner to suit your needs. Users of the old Fade to Bright wake-up style can now change their experience by picking Sunrise from the Automation’s edit screen.”

The new Philips Hue Signe gradient lamp in oak appears to be a good match for this new lighting style. Table and floor versions of this new lamp cost £199.99 and £299.99, respectively. It incorporates the Hue Signe design with a natural wood base.

For the most part, Philips Hue’s latest products are geared on making smart lighting more accessible throughout your house while also allowing you greater control over how the lights are arranged and controlled from a design standpoint. These goods must be tested to discover if Philips has a winner on its hands. Nevertheless, we have great hopes for Philips’ smart lights, given the company’s track record of producing some of the best on the market.
