Just as all other Philips Hue products, the Friends of Hue luminaires enable consumers to adapt and control their lighting to suit each moment, time of day or occasion at the touch of a button, by motion or voice command.

“We’re always striving to give Philips Hue users greater options in how they use smart lighting within their homes. These new partnerships, in addition to our existing luminaire partners Modular and Luceplan, offer consumers even more choice in high-end lighting designs featuring Philips Hue,” said Sridhar Kumaraswamy, Business Leader Home Systems at Philips Lighting. “We plan to continue to expand the Friends of Hue program by offering companies access to the world’s leading connected lighting system for the home that future proofs their great designs.”

Friends of Hue products benefit from ongoing over-the-air updates to seamlessly introduce new Philips Hue features and functionality. They can be controlled by the Philips Hue app along with hundreds of third-party apps and activated by multiple touchpoints, e.g. voice control, geo-fencing, Philips Hue switches and smart motion sensors, plus web-based services like IFTTT.

Products by the respective partners are expected to launch in North America in Q1 and Q2 2018.
