Philips Hue white ambiance delivers white light, "routines" in the Hue app

When it comes to home automation, almost nobody has been out there as long as Philips Hue. Today the company announced the new Philips Hue white ambiance bulbs and integrated luminaires, all providing shades of white light from cool daylight (6500°K) to warm white light (2200°K). 

Along with the new lighting, there's a "routines" feature in the Philips Hue app that provides light recipes that can gradually brighten lights to help you wake up in the morning or gradually dim them to help you get to sleep at night.

Sometime this spring, Philips will offer a Philips Hue white ambiance starter kit with two Philips Hue white ambience bulbs, an Apple HomeKit-compatible bridge, and a wireless dimming switch. Philips Hue white ambiance is compatible with all existing Philips Hue products and the over 600 third-party apps that support the lighting platform.
