Philips introducing first Hue outdoor lights…

Philips is taking its smart lighting outdoors.

Phillips' Hue lights can be controlled remotely via the connected app, with location awareness feature prompting the lights to turn on once a person comes home.

Among the new range is a spotlight called Lily meant to "highlight the key design features in your garden, illuminating handsome flower beds, or potted plants". 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.

Are you looking forward to bringing Hue lights to your yard?

All Philips Hue outdoor products are designed for outdoor use and easy to install.

The company has confirmed that the new Philips Hue outdoor lights will be available in July for customers in the United States and Europe. The Philips Hue white range offers a number of products matching the decor of your house. New luminaries - starting at $30 - can be set to be activated by motion sensor or a timer, but only produce white light. Another bulb, the Calla (see the theme?), is priced at $129.99 and is meant to be installed in walkways and paths. The Hue line is also getting a PAR38 bulb that will slot into existing fixtures, with each bulb costing $29 and a double-pack available for $49. These new lights will work with Assistant too.

Like its indoor counterparts, Phillips new outdoor smart lights are responsive to voice commands (e.g. through Google Home integration).
