Philips has announced a number of new products for its Smart Home Hue product line.
The Edison-style Hue Smart lamps are LED lamps, but they are designed to have exposed filaments inside – visible through the clear glass of the lamp. Very hip.
The Edison bulbs will be available in three sizes and will be available in the US from October. There is currently no information available on a more complete version. However, prices are expected to start at $ 25 (~ £ 20).

The next interesting addition to the Hue series is a Smart Plug – finally. A Hue Smart Plug has disappeared since its launch in the Philips Hue ecosystem, focusing instead on lighting products. The price for the Smart Plug is $ 40 when released.
The Philips Hue Smart Key is another fascinating new product. The button is designed to simplify the control of your lighting system at home. Use the button to turn the lights on and off, dim and adjust them to automatically adjust to the time of day. The button is sold for $ 20 (~ £ 17).

Not necessarily a new product announcement, but Philips is also updating the Hue Go portable lamp – the first time since its first release in 2015. The lamp has Bluetooth support and two new colors.
The Hue Go now has a longer battery life and stands up correctly when loading. The lamp will be available in the US from November for $ 80.
Rounding out the line-up with some new Hue lamps. The new headlamps are smaller and brighter, and there is also a new white E12 candle lamp.
Here, at Trusted ReviewsWe are big fans of the Philips Hue series. Our 4.5 / 5-star rating of the intelligent lighting system showed:
"There is no doubt that Philips Hue offers the widest selection of smart lights, the largest third-party support and the widest range of controllers. Each light bulb produces high quality light and reacts quickly. Hue is a bit more expensive than some of its Smart Bulb competitors, but the money is well spent. "
