Philips, one of the leading makers of LED lights, has announced that the company’s all new Hue lux LED bulbs – which can be controlled via smartphone apps – are now up for pre-order.
The company has revealed that the new Philips Hue lux LED bulbs will be available for pre-order from Apple’s online store and Amazon.
The Hue lux LED bulbs’ colour and brightness can be wirelessly controlled via the Philips Hue smartphone and tablet app from Google Play, Amazon Appstore for Android, and the App Store. The company announced the news on Twitter.
The all new Hue lux bulbs are available for pre-order as a starter kit that costs $194.99 (roughly Rs. 11,900) at Amazon, and contains two Hue lux bulbs and a Hue bridge, while, it is also available for pre-booking as a single pack that costs $29.95 (roughly Rs. 1,800) for a single Philips Hue lux bulb at the Apple Store.
9to5toys notes that the Philips Hue lux LED bulbs can be expected to be available by next month.
Announced in March and initially expected to hit markets by the summer, the Philips Hue lux LED bulbs can be installed by screwing the bulbs into regular holders and plugging the bridge into the home’s Wi-Fi router.
In addition to the Philips Hue lux LED bulbs pre-order, the company on Tuesday updated its Android and iOS apps with new features.
Much like Philips’ popular Hue LED bulbs, LG in March launched its Smart Bulb that was controllable via Android and iOS devices.
