Philips Hue Stories June 24, 2016

These days there is a myriad of choices in the smart lighting category, highlighted by the Philips Hue products. Most of them offer some pretty interesting control, as far as color and smartphone functionality, but can also cost a pretty penny. In my search for something similar and more cost efficient, I came across these Vansky USB powered LED light strips for a fraction of the price.

Adorama offers the second generation Philips Hue A19 LED Starter Kit with HomeKit support for $169.99.

Philips Hue Stories March 14, 2016

Philips Hue light bulbs are amongst some of our favorite smart home accessories. While the product line has often been imitated, the majority of its competition has failed to capture the ease of use and quality. There are Hue bulbs that can replicate nearly any color imaginable and traditional options as well.

One area that has yet to be addressed, however, is ambient lighting. While Philips already offers dawn simulation lighting, smartphone connectivity is not available. Today, the two converge in a new product that focuses on consumers waking up with more energy. Additionally, Philips has announced a new ‘Routines’ feature in its app that memorizes your daily schedule and adjusts lighting to mimic the sun. More below.
