Philips announced a new outdoor lineup of Hue lights this past spring that consists of spot lights, bollard lights, and luminaries. Now the company is expanding its offerings, unveiling an outdoor version of its popular LED LightStrip.

The outdoor LightStrip has shown up as a new product on Philips’ Netherlands website. While not available just yet, the company shared some details on the latest Hue product.

The outdoor version of the LightStrip will be offered in 2m (6.56 ft.) and 5m (16.4 ft.) and offers the same ability as the original LightStrip (reviewed) to illuminate with 16 million colors alongside HomeKit support.

As for how the outdoor version differs, it is “completely weatherproof.” As spotted by HomeKit News Philips goes on to describe that “The LightStrip can withstand small puddles and water jets from any direction, so do not worry if rain is unexpectedly predicted.

Additionally, the outdoor LightStrip skips the adhesive backing and includes mounting clips to attach it to surfaces like fences, home exteriors, and more.

There’s not yet any official news of when the outdoor LightStrip will be released (abroad or in the US), but we may hear more details next month.
