Signify just launched multiple new additions to its Philips Hue range of smart connected lighting. These include the Go portable table lamp, Tap dial switch, customizable track lighting, and a new colorway for the Signe gradient lamp.

Let’s go through them, in reverse order. The new $350 Signe gradient lamp comes clad in oak, adding to the black and white options already available.

It’ll be available in mid-July in the US, and you can get it in the UK today for £300. There’s also a smaller table version, for £200.

Hue’s first portable table lamp, the €149.99 / $159.99 Hue Go, is coming this summer, as well. Featuring up to 48 hours of battery life, it also has a button to cycle through preset light scenes, so you don’t have to leave the Hue fun at home.

The last item announced today is the $49 Philips Hue Tap dial switch. Available in white and matte black, it acts as a dial-based dimmer for your Hue lights.
