Philips Hue outdoor lighting range detailed - coming this summer

Brilliant new naming conventions from Hue HQ as well

Philips Hue outdoor lighting range detailed

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 US stores in the summer.

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.

The Ambient picks: The best smart lighting available now

Philips Hue products usually just have dull model number names but someone over at Hue HQ has got creative with the monikers for the new outdoor line.

First up, the big hitter is the Philips Hue Lily, which comes as a starter pack consisting of three spotlights and is designed "to highlight design features in your garden and illuminate flower beds and plants", like the image up top. It's $279 for that starter pack, additional extensions will be $79.99.

Next up, and pictured below, is the Philips Hue Calla (640 lumens, like the Lily), which is a path lighting option that will cost $129.99. The base pack includes one bollard, additional ones will set you back $89.99.

If you're looking for wall mounted fixture lighting then you'll be interested in the Philips Hue Inara ($49.99, 800 lumens), Lucca ($59.99, 800 lumens) or Ludere ($129.99, 2600 lumens) - and Philips also has a dedicated outdoor bulb - the white PAR38 ($29.99 each or $49.99 for a two-pack, 1300 lumens). They must have got bored of coming up with names at that point.

The whole range comes out in the summer - there's no word yet on UK availability or pricing but we'll keep you posted.
