Philips unveils a new range of Wi-Fi bulbs that forgo the Hue Bridge

Back in June, Philips introduced a new range of bulbs that worked without the need for a hub. Although these connect to your phone directly through Bluetooth, they lack direct Internet access if you don't buy the Hue bridge. The company is looking at fixing this drawback with the release of a new lineup that operates directly over Wi-Fi and forgoes the need for a hub.

Philips introduces new Bluetooth Hue bulbs that work without a hub

Hue products are known for their reliability, ease of use, and integration with third-party solutions. However, they typically require a Zigbee hub to function, which makes a Hue setup quite pricey if you're only looking at buying a couple of bulbs. The competition has long offered lights that connect directly to a Wi-Fi router or your phone over Bluetooth, and Philips is finally giving in by announcing a range of bulbs that don't need a hub to function — even though they can also work with one.

The Eufy Lumos Wi-Fi smart bulb is only $12 on Amazon (25% off)

Connected bulbs are an essential part of a smart home infrastructure, but it's not always easy to know which one to buy. Some have to connect to a proprietary or Zigbee controller, which in turns communicates with your router. Although this tends — or rather, used to — make the bulbs cheaper, it means you have to stick to this particular architecture and to already own the hub. Otherwise, you can turn to Wi-Fi smart bulbs, which connect directly to your router and don't need any intermediary to do so. Although these could be more expensive than the previously mentioned bulbs, their price is now significantly more affordable than what it used to be.
