Lighting for work, rest and play

A unique range of light bulbs, which provide multiple light settings to meet the changing needs of homes and consumers, has been launched by Philips Lighting. Many houses and flats have become multi-purpose spaces: somewhere to work, relax and entertain, and the new Philips SceneSwitch LED range caters for this need, allowing you to use your existing light switch to select the light scene best suited to a given task.

According to Philips, only 10% of consumers currently have the ability to dim light in their homes. The new LED range provides a solution to address this where you can easily change the setting from a bright light for concentration and detail, to a natural light, to a warm relaxing glow – all with a flick of the existing light switch. There is no need to install a dimmer, or make other dramatic changes to make rooms truly multi-functional spaces.

Housing shortages and soaring prices have led to more people sharing the same space at home, or staying in smaller houses as the next step on the property ladder becomes out of reach. Recent Ipsos research reveals it’s not feasible to change lighting settings in many homes, despite the increasing need for multi-purpose spaces and an appetite to do so.

The new Philips SceneSwitch LED range is plug and play. It enables people to switch lighting without requiring structural changes, installing a dimmer switch or spending a disproportionate amount of money, which can be unrealistic for many homeowners or people in rented accommodation. People simply use their existing light switch to select one of the scenes to quickly and effectively transform their room from somewhere to study, to somewhere to snuggle.

The Philips SceneSwitch range is designed to reflect the many and varied functions of rooms in modern-day homes. It has a memory function and includes three different light settings:

 1. Bright light
 Perfect for those occasions where you need to see every detail, such as applying make-up. The Philips SceneSwitch bright light setting, at 2700K/800Lm, provides a brighter more intensive light to help you focus and experience every detail.

 2. Natural light
 A setting that mimics natural light, which is ideal for reading a book. At 2500K/320Lm, it is a less intense, natural light which creates and inviting ambiance to wind down with a good book. The natural light setting is similar to a 40w bulb, and can be found between the other two settings.

 3. Cosy, warm light
 The rise in watching movies and on-demand TV6 at home, is another reason that the home has to be adaptable and provide a suitable space for getting comfortable and watching a film. The cosy warm glow, at 2200K/80Lm, is perfect for helping you relax and enjoy the moment.

The Philips SceneSwitch LED range is available in the following variants: 60W bulb from July 12 2016, with a 40W candle and 50W spot available from September 2016.
