Extending the Philips Hue range even further, from wall mounted luminaires, to spot lighting and pillar posts, Philips Hue’s outdoor range offers the freedom to extend Hue features and functionality to any outside area, be it a garden, terrace or balcony. The new Philips Hue outdoor products span both the Philips Hue white and Philips Hue white and color ambiance ranges, allowing users to improve the security of their home for added peace of mind as well as creating the perfect outdoor ambiance, all with the simple tap of a button.
The luminaires attach to the side of your house, usually mounted near a door, and are intended to act as a replacement for the traditional motion-activated welcome/security light. These will be available in a range of styles, and start at just $29.99.
The spotlights are intended to highlight particular features.
A new unique spotlight, the Philips Hue Lily, can be used to highlight the key design features in your garden, illuminating beautiful flower beds, or potted plants by choosing from the 16 million colors available via the Philips Hue app.
Lily is available in a pack of three for $279.99.
Finally, Calla is a bollard light, designed to provide path or driveway lighting.
Philips Hue Calla is perfect 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.
A starter pack will cost $129.99.
