It seems as if a new version of the Philips Hue LightStrip is on its way – this time for outdoor use – if a new leak is to be believed.

Eagle-eyed HomeKitNews spotted a listing for the lights on the Philips Netherlands site, and managed to grab the details before it was removed. The Philips Hue Outdoor LightStrip is, of course, water resistant" and will add to the new Hue Outdoor range, that has just gone on sale.

Inspiration: How to set up Hue Lightstrip

“The LightStrip can withstand small puddles and water jets from any direction, so do not worry if rain is unexpectedly predicted,” read the listing – so you’ll be safe from downpours and unintentional hosepipe soakings.

The strip seems to be designed to stay on show, rather than be hidden behind units, as is the case with the current indoor LightStrip. The listing says that the Outdoor LightStrip attaches used screwed-in clips, rather than sticky tape, so you can edge your paths, fences or cherub statues with colour-changeable lights.
