Anyways, never one to sit still, Signify (the brand behind Hue nowadays) has used CES 2019 to reveal the newest members of the Outdoor clan - including a much needed (in my garden, at least) Outdoor motion sensor.
The weather-resistant Hue Outdoor sensor (pictured above) is a wireless, battery-powered device that can be configured in the Hue app to switch whatever Hue bulbs you want on (inside and out) when it detects motion.

It has a detection range of 12 meters and the integrated dusk-to-dawn sensor means you don't have to worry that your lights will be going on and off all day. It'll cost ¬£49.99 when it goes on sale in February.
As well as the sensor, there's also a trio of new Outdoor lighting options: the Philips Hue Welcome Flood Light (¬£119.99) offers one shade of bright white light; the Hue Discover Flood Light (¬£139.99) has both white and color ambiance lights (above).
Finally, the Hue Econic family, which is a series of slick looking wall-mounted fixtures in various shapes and sizes (below), that will cost from ¬£119.99.
As well as the new Outdoor options, Signify has also announced that Hue is beefing up its Google Assistant features. Users will be able to sync up their GA alarms to have Hue's natural sleep and wake lightning in the mix and so on. These new features go live in March.
