NZXT has announced the version 2 of the HUE 2 Ambient RGB Lighting Kit, an update which the company says "brings product improvements that make installation easier and help ensure that the included LED strips will be securely attached to your monitor". The lighting kit uses NZXT's CAM software to select between lighting modes – which include an ambient mode that changes the lighting to compliment the images on your monitor.
"The HUE 2 ecosystem delivers the broadest line of RGB lighting accessories for PC Builders with over 10 different accessories such as the HUE 2 RGB lighting kit, underglow kit, AER RGB 2 fans, and cable combs."
NZXT provides this list of features for the new HUE 2 kit:
HUE 2 Ambient RGB Kit V2 New Features:
- Stronger Adhesive: Upgraded the 3M LED strip adhesive backing tape to be thicker and stickier. It is more compatible with the different surfaces and textures of monitors on the market.
- L-Shape Corner Connector: For easier setup, we replaced the 150mm corner connectors to an L-shape corner connector for the top left and bottom right of your monitor.
- Alcohol Wipes: As your monitor may be dusty or dirty, we added alcohol-based cleaning wipes so you can clean the back of the monitor before adhering the LED strips.
