Phillips Expands 'Hue' Smart Lights Range To Outdoors

Philips Hue Outdoor Lighting Products Coming This Summer

With the Hue app, you can choose from 16 million different colors for your lights to shine.

Philips is taking its Hue smart lights outside with its new luminary, spot, and pillar post products. Presumably, we'll have more information on products availability at that point. You can also use the app's Home & Away function to set up loction-based routines, so, for instance, your outdoor lights automatically switch on when you're about to arrive home.

Phillips has also debuted its new Hue White PAR38 light bulb [1,300 lumens ~$US30 - $60], which can be easily screwed into existing outdoor lighting fixtures.

Consumers only have to add the new outdoor smart lights to their "Phillips Hue bridge" for easy app-based control. The lights come in white as well as white and color ambiance. Last but not the least, Calla is the bollard light which can be used to light up a driveway or path.

Philips says the Lily spotlight can be used to "highlight the key design features in your garden, illuminating lovely flower beds, or potted plants", whereas the Calla bollard is ideal for "path lighting and can also be used to enhance your outdoor space". Simply choose a color which suits your mood, or even go one step further and change your lighting to reflect your guest's favorite color palette, dimming to create a more intimate setting as the night draws on. They will be available in Europe and the United States in July. Lily will be sold in packs of three for $279.99. The company's latest outdoor smart lights are created to work alongside existing fixtures within Phillips' smart lights family.
