Philips Hue outdoor lighting products now have a launch date and it’s not the far away.
Back in January, Philips Hue announced it was working on outdoor smart lights ideally suited for patios, gardens, or balconies. We now know the product lineup will be available in July and span the company’s three main ranges, Philips Hue white, Philips Hue white ambiance, and Philips Hue white and color ambiance.
As Sridhar Kumaraswamy, Business Leader Home Systems & Luminaires at Philips Lighting explains:
Our customers are always looking for new ways to extend their smart lighting system and the new Philips Hue outdoor range takes it a huge step further.
While Philips Hue bulbs and luminaires are available for every area inside your home, we wanted to traverse the threshold and offer connected luminaires designed for outside areas. The Philips Hue outdoor range enables you to make the most of your outside areas, be it creating the ideal ambiance to host a BBQ at the weekend or beautifying your garden.
At launch, Philips Hue will offer the following outdoor lighting products:
- Philips Hue outdoor spot Lily base unit pack will retail for USD 279.99 /EUR 299 and includes three light points and all the accessories you need to get started.
- Calla bollard will retail for USD 129.99 / EUR 139.99 as base unit pack.
- The Philips Hue white range offers a number of products matching the decor of your house. Products in this range are named Lucca, Tuar, Turaco and Ludere (United States only) and retail prices will start from USD 49.99 /EUR 69.99.
- United States only: the PAR38 lamp will retail for USD 29.99 for a single pack and double pack for USD 49.99.
Besides offering a new outdoor lighting lineup, Philips Hue is expected to revamp its official Hue app in the coming weeks. As Brent Dirks noted in January, the app was redesigned partly based on comments, feedback, and ideas from Hue users.
