Don't let its simple looks fool you; the Philips Hue Cher is a light fixture that gives you all of the smart home goodies. The Cher is a light that works just about everywhere, from hallways to bedrooms, and HomeKit gives you control with a tap or shout. This fully dimmable light is also crazy bright, boasting a whopping 3000 lumens of crisp white light.
The Ascend Wall Light is a fantastic option if you need to replace a sconce around your home. Since it is a part of the Philips Hue line, it is capable of 16 million different colors and shades of white, and its 450 lumens of brightness works great for its directional nature. Best of all, this fixture is one of the lowest-priced options around.
Ikea's FLOALT LED Light Panels come in three different shapes and sizes, including one that resembles the classic kitchen ceiling light design. That's where the similarities stop, though, as this energy-efficient panel consists of 10 LED lights capable of flooding a room with 2,200 lumens of light. This panel is also extremely slim and fully dimmable with color temperature adjustment capabilities.
The Craftmade P817MG-HUE Pendant is a stunning option, giving a touch of class to any room. This majestic pendant comes in both silver and gold finishes that have a frosted acrylic spiral diffuser that spread light around your room evenly. This fixture is also powered by Philips Hue lighting, giving it the ability to work within the expansive Hue ecosystem or HomeKit.
This smart pendant light from ET2 has a clean brushed metal circular frame, bringing modern looks and features. The 31254 has a Philips Hue light integrated inside, giving you a full range of whites and colors that looks amazing when lit. HomeKit support takes things to another level, with scenes and automations capable of setting the mood anytime, anywhere.
The Philips Hue Adore Lighted Mirror is a unique combination of utility and convenience that also just so happens to look good. This mirror works with HomeKit remotes for accessible dimming and has a damp rating making it perfect for the bathroom, or just about any place where you need to check things over. This impressive mirror is also extremely bright, ramping to 2,400 lumens of clean white light.

The Philips Hue Cher Flush-mount light is a versatile option that works in almost any room in the home and does so with the brightest light output around, making it one of our favorites. Just keep in mind that you will need a Philips Hue Hub to add the smarts.
