NEWS – Philips latest smart lighting product is the Play light bar.  You choose from 16 million colors to enhance the atmosphere of your room.  The light bar integrates into your existing Hue lighting and pairs with your Hue bridge.  It can then be controlled by the Hue app or by the variety of 3rd party apps for the Hue lighting system.  It also can be controlled by Hue switches or with Amazon Alexa, Apple Homekit, and Google Home, which allow you to control your lights with your voice.  You can also set timers, notifications, alarms, and sync it to music (using the Hue Sync app), and more, as you can with other Hue lights.

Play can be added to the back of your TV for backlighting using the included clips and double-sided tape.  Add the stand, and Play will stand on a table to serve as an accent light.  Or you can lay it on the floor to wash a wall with color.  It can even be used as under-cabinet lighting for kitchen counters.  Up to three Play light bars can be connected to a single power supply.


Philips Hue Play will be available with a single light bar for $69.95 or with two light bars for $129.95.  A separate light bar will be available to expand the kit to the maximum three bars.  Shipping is expected in October.  Learn more at Philips.
