HomeKit filament bulbs are some of the easiest to install, best-looking HomeKit accessories around, as they add smart lighting capabilities inside of a stylish exterior. Simply screw in one of these bulbs, and watch it light up your room with vintage charm. Once set up, these bulbs work right alongside all of the other HomeKit devices in your home, making them work automatically or on-demand through automations.

We love the Philips Hue White Filament ST19 because it combines a filament-style coil and the classic thinner and longer design. This bulb is also highly capable, working with all of the major voice assistants when paired with the Philips Hue Hub, as well as working directly to your phone using Bluetooth.
