Smart lights are a must-have for any smart home, keeping in mind that you can change the colors of your lights with a tap of a button or even your voice. Philips already has mastered this craft with its greatest range of bulbs, strips, lamps, and other products. The new Philips Hue product range adds a combination of versatile lighting options with new accessories.
The most exciting announcement is the all-new Philips Hue Perifo Track Lighting will come with an option to customize the direction and focus of all your lights. Track Lighting comes with the same smart home connectivity as the rest of its Hue series.
Philips also announced a new Philips Hue Tap dial switch, Portable Hue Go Lamp, and much more.
The new track lighting system
Philips Hue’s Perifo track lighting system allows users to mix and match different types of lights. The system rails fit together to provide a customizable track that will give full control over lighting. The user will be able to choose the length of a track, the layout, brightness, and the kinds of lights to incorporate.
Users can attach the system to their wall or ceiling and connect it to a power outlet. Not only that users will be able to combine the pendants, color-capable spotlights, light tubes, and light bars in a Perifo track. This will enable users to customize the lighting according to the occasion and the mood.

New Sunrise wakeup scene
Waking up naturally is a less intrusive and far healthier option than an alarm clock. Keeping that in mind Philips added a new Sunrise wake-up scene, which uses blue, yellow, and orange colors to mimic the tone of a rising sun. This will provide users with a relaxing wake-up call at any time of the day. The Sunrise wake-up scene can be found in the Philips Hue app.
