Philips releases outdoor connected Hue lighting

Philips releases outdoor connected Hue lighting

Available for purchase this summer in the USA, the lighting company has a range of new outdoor lighting products extending the world of Internet of Things to the great outdoors.

Security features make even more sense in an outdoor environment too - lighting is a known deterrent against burglaries, with Hue's Home & Away function letting you set up a timed lighting routine to give the impression of your presence even when you're absent from a property.

The Philips Hue Calla path lights offer full color control.


The luminaires attach to the side of your house, usually mounted near a door, and are meant to act as a replacement for the traditional motion-activated welcome/security light. The Hue Lily spotlights can be used to highlight outdoor features such as garden elements and art, and the Hue Calla pillar post lights are designed for lighting paths and other outdoor spaces.

Finally, Calla is a bollard light, created to provide path or driveway lighting. 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.

The new outdoor smart lighting comes in a variety of options, with wall mounts, bulbs and spotlights all going live later this year - all of which sync up with your existing Philips Hue Bridge and will be controllable within the all new Philips Hue app - 3.0 - which is also set to go live in the coming months. Both models let you choose from 16 million colors. They will be available in Europe and the United States in July. The Calla bollard will retail for United States dollars 129.99 / Euro 139.99 as base unit pack. Products in this range are named Lucca, Tuar, Turaco and Ludere (United States only) and retail prices will start from Dollars 49.99 /EUR 69.99. Media and bloggers are invited to join the Philips Lighting press conference, on Monday, March 19, at 1.00pm at the Philips Lighting booth.
