The new bulbs are believed to be Bluetooth-enabled, therefore you may not need a Hue bridge to use. Current Hue bulbs use ZigBee technology.

LED filament bulbs are a popular bulb choice and look great, there are not filament Hue bulbs at the moment and this would be a new bulb for their range. At the moment exciting bulbs have a plastic whiteish top, which is fine for lamps where you may not see the bulb, however for lights where you can see the bulb these would be great.

A smart plug would be a new product from Philips and something that could allow you to use lights and lamps where they do not offer a suitable bulb, you could then turn these lights on and off using your Hue set up and including with timers and schedules.

If reports are true we would expect these to be officially announced at the IFA in Berlin.

New GU10 Bulbs

A common request are updates GU10 bulbs, there are rumours that this fall there maybe an update to these including the GU10 bulbs having improved color and getting the ‘richer colors’ stamp.

    New GU10 bulbs must surely be reduced in size, better color is great, but they still won’t fit in my spotlight housing!
