After taking over by Ideal Industries, Cree Lighting launches a new series of linear LED lighting, Stylus™, which is created for high-end lighting design. Meanwhile, Signify, who acquired Wi-Fi-based connected lighting ecosystem developer WiZ Connected in April, announced that it is expanding its smart home lighting offering in the U.S. by adding Wi-Fi enabled lighting.
The Stylus™ Linear Series is designed to remove the hurdles to specifying architectural linear lighting across large projects. The series provide architects and lighting designers with a full linear suite that fits with today’s minimalist design concepts.
With Cree Lighting’s 90+ CRI Cree TrueWhite® Technology with high R9>65 across the entire line and all CCT options (30K, 35K,40K), the new products provide uniform light distribution with natural colors. In addition, the dimming function can work down to one percent.
On the other hand, Signify said it has included Wi-Fi-enabled lighting working with the WiZ Connected ecosystem to its smart home lighting offering in the United States. The WiZ Connected ecosystem operates independently from the Philips Hue ecosystem. Conveniently adjust the Philips Smart Wi-Fi LED lighting using the easy-to-use WiZ app on smartphones or tablets and Wi-Fi network at home.
"There are so many activities we carry out at home. Our Philips Smart Wi-Fi LED WiZ Connected range makes it easy to set the right light for any and all situations," said Jeroen Schuitemaker, US Consumer Business Leader, Signify. "Whether you're spending time with your family and friends, doing housework or enjoying a meal, you can conveniently get the different light settings you need with the tap of an app or using your voice."
