Philips Hue outdoor range adds mood lighting to your garden

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).

Philips teased back in January that it would be launching outdoor Hue lights later in the year, and it has now provided details of the products - including pricing and availability.

Like their indoor counterparts, these Hue products are a tad on the pricey side but offer a range of features not available on traditional lighting products. The Calla (pictured above) is ideal for path lighting, while the Lily (pictured below), can be used to highlight the key design features in your garden. The new Philips Hue outdoor products span both the Philips Hue white and Philips Hue white and color ambiance ranges, allowing users to improve the security of their home for added peace of mind as well as creating the flawless outdoor ambiance, all with the simple tap of a button.

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.

Alternatively, you can switch them on and off using the app, or set a schedule.

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

Meanwhile, the Lily spotlight will retail for $279/€299, and the Calla bollard will go on sale for $139/€139. We'll update with news of localised pricing for the United Kingdom and Australia once they become available. As WiFi range and consumer demand increases, products such as these will become more available.
