Philips Hue Outdoor Smart Lights Coming in July

12 March 2018

A single system to light your home smarter - inside and out created to be easy to install, the Philips Hue outdoor range works seamlessly with the rest of the products in the Philips Hue smart lighting family. The Philips HueInara (MSRP $49.99, 800 lumens), Lucca (MSRP $59.99, 800 lumens) and Ludere (MSRP $129.99, 2600 lumens) luminaires offer great light distribution, and are ideal for use next to a front or back door or above a garage.

We knew that the Philips Hue outdoor range was coming - we were told as much in January at CES - and now we've got the juicy price and spec details, along with the names of the outdoor lights that will be hitting USA stores in the summer.

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

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. There's also the Hue Calla, which seems to function as lighting that's more general goal.
