Philips Hue takes to the great outdoors and garden parties will never be the same

Philips has announced its first outdoor Hue lights, with a wide range of new garden-centric products arriving this summer.

The smart home specialist is adding a number of new products powered by both white and colour ambiance bulbs.

All of the new products seamlessly integrate with the indoor lighting system, Hue bridge and app, of course.

So what are we looking at? Well, the new Philips Hue Lily is described as a “unique spotlight” designed to highlight features like flowerbeds or potted plants.

Meanwhile, the Philips Hue Calla is “perfect for path lighting and can also be used to enhance your outdoor space,” the firm says in a press release.

“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,” Philips adds.


The lights are also compatible with Alexa, Siri and the Google Assistant, which will enable users to command them via voice controls; handy if you’re coming home and want the pathway lit up on those dark winter nights.

The Lily spotlights will start at $279.99/€299 for a three pack, while the Calla pathway lighting is $129.99/€139.99.

The firm is also plotting wall-mounted luminaries and pillar posts. Philips isn’t going into detail today, but further products named Lucca, Tuar, Turaco and Ludere will be unveiled at an event on March 19. They’ll start at $49.99.

The company is also pitching these lights as a security aid, while also making it easier to welcome people to your home.

The press release adds: “With several products to choose from in the Philips Hue white outdoor range, you can select the best product to suit the aesthetics of your home and your personal lighting needs. A few of the outdoor luminaires are perfect for mounting near a front or back door, so your lights can welcome you and your visitors to your home. With the Philips Hue app, you can turn your outdoor lights on or off remotely or schedule them to automatically switch on at specific moments in the day.”
