Ledvance Adds to HomeKit-Enabled Lighting

  • PDF

Lighting vendor Ledvance announces a pair of additions to the HomeKit-enabled Sylvania range-- the Soft White A19 bulb and the Indoor Flex Strip Full Colour.

Ledvance lightingThe Soft White bulb s a less expensive version of the Smart Multicolor A19, a smart bulb announced back in January 2017. However, as the name suggests, the Soft White cannot change colour. It is dimmable, rated at 800 lumens and works with any lamp compatible with A19 bulbs.

Meanwhile the Full Colour Flex Strip is an LED light strip designed to provide accent lighting under shelves, along bookcases and under cabinets. It is rated at 400 lumens, includes 3 sections measuring 1.8m combined and features a colour range extending from 1900 to 6500K.

The two lighting products do not require a hub-- instead, like many other HomeKit-enabled products, they pair with an iDevice, be it an Apple TV, iPad or HomePod, via Bluetooth. Once paired control comes through either Siri or Home app.

The Soft White A19 and Indoor Flex Strip should ship by end October 2017.
