NEWS – Philips has announced a new fixture that can replace both the mirror and the over-mirror light in your bathroom. It can be used as general lighting for the room, and it can provide task lighting for shaving or applying makeup. The new Philips Adore bathroom mirror adds to your existing Hue bridge that controls all your other Hue lights. Just like those lights, the Adore mirror can be controlled using your smart phone app, Alexa voice commands, or with the included switch/remote control.
The switch mounts to the wall and is used to power the mirror on or off or to dim the light. The button bar pops off the mounting plate so you can use the remote to adjust the lighting while you’re relaxing in the bath.
The circular mirror has a 22″ diameter and protrudes 2.0″ from the wall. It uses a 40W LED bulb to produce 2400 lumens. The light color is 2200-6500 Hue White Ambiance. It can be adjusted from energizing white light to get you awake and ready for the day to a warm, relaxing light to help you wind down from a busy day while showering or soaking in the tub.
The Adore mirror was designed for the humid environment of a bathroom; it is DAMP-rated by UL. Philips says: “It was tested rigorously to ensure its water resistance. The IP level is described by two figures: the first one refers to the protection level against dust, the second against water. This bathroom light is designed with IP44: it is protected against splashing water, this product is most common and ideal for bathroom use.”
The Adore mirror isn’t yet available, but Hue says it will sell for $249.99. Learn more at Philips.
