These products mark an important change for the Internet of Things world. "The Philips Hue outdoor range enables you to make the most of your outside areas, be it creating the ideal ambiance to host a BBQ at the weekend or beautifying your garden". Like Philips' indoor lighting lineup, the outdoor IoT-connected lights can be controlled by your voice or Hue app once connected to Philips Hue bridges. The company has now confirmed that the Philips Hue outdoor lights will be available for purchase this July.

At launch, the new outdoor products will include a trio of wall-mounted fixtures, spotlight and path lighting options, and a new, weather-rated Philips Hue outdoor floodlight bulb. Global Positioning System smarts also mean that you'll be able to set your outdoor lights to automatically come on as you approach your home. Last but not the least, Calla is the bollard light which can be used to light up a driveway or path. Simply choose a color which suits your mood, or even go one step further and change your lighting to reflect your guest's favorite color palette, dimming to create a more intimate setting as the night draws on.
