If you’re looking for a pretty filament lamp that you can also integrate into HomeKit, IKEA now has another affordable option for you.

Filament lamps enjoy great popularity. Unlike conventional light bulbs, they do not want to be hidden behind a lampshade.

Until now, IKEA only had a filament lamp with E27 socket in normal size on offer, as well as a candle-shaped model with E14 socket. From now on there is also a larger lamp with E27 socket.

With a diameter of 95mm, the lamp offers a brightness of 470lm in a warm white. IKEA sells the new model for 9,99€. A hub from IKEA is required for integration into HomeKit and connectivity with other devices.

The counterpart from Philips Hue is slightly brighter with 550lm and has a curved instead of straight filament, but also costs more than three times as much with a recommended retail price of 34.99€. The street price is still more than double.
