Philips introduces its first outdoor Hue lights


These new outdoor products are fully compatible with the Philips Hue ecosystem and work the same way as the company's indoor range. The spotlight Philips Hue Lily costs $270 and comes with three lights, while the Calla is $129 and is created to illuminate pathways - both have access to 16 million different colors.

Back in January, Philips Hue announced it was working on outdoor smart lights ideally suited for patios, gardens, or balconies. Just as with indoor Philips Hue lights, you can control your outdoor lighting in any way you wish, with the Philips Hue app or with your voice to create the flawless ambiance in any outside space.

The Luminaires are meant to be attached to the side of the house near doors.

With the Hue app, you can check and control your lights wherever you are, and schedule them to switch on and off at specific times.

Spotlights such as the new Philips Hue Lily will be used to enhance key design features in gardens such as potted plans or flower beds. Alternatively, the Philips Hue Calla is ideal for path lighting and can also be used to enhance your outdoor space. The products have a color temperature range of 2200-6500 Kelvin and feature 16 million colors.

You can get the bulbs starting in July throughout the United States and Europe. These will be available in a range of styles, and start at just $29.99. The Lily starter pack includes three bulbs for $279.99, and the Calla starter pack is priced at $129.99. Another new light, Calla, is designed for path lighting.

Philips on Monday announced its Philips Hue outdoor lineup will launch in the USA and Europe in July.
