LIFX just announced it is releasing two new products:
Both still in pre-order status.
Looks like the only differences between the LIFX+ and the LIFX Color 1000 are that the plus has 45 more lumens and it has the ability to give off infrared when when off to help with security camera night vision. It doesn’t look like there is HomeKit integration. I don’t mind the lack of homekit integration, however I still suspect that LIFX will release a hub / homekit bulb which acts a a hub to enable homekit on all bulbs.
Take your smart home to another wavelength with the LIFX+. With the help of infrared, the LIFX+ lets you see in the dark by enhancing the range and quality of vision from your at home security camera.
The infrared is very innovative. It has me considering replacing a a couple of my bulbs when these come out, however no reason to swap out all of them.
