Extend your smart lighting system this summer with the new Philips Hue outdoor range | Philips Lighting

Philips' new outdoor lighting range will be available in the U.S. and Europe in July starting at $29.99.

With the Philips Hue white and color ambiance outdoor range, you can take your outdoor space to the next level, whether dining with friends, relaxing with a book, or simply beatifying your garden with colored light.

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. These new outdoor products are fully compatible with the Philips Hue ecosystem and work the same way as the company's indoor range.

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. You can connect them to the Hue bridge, then control them via the accompanying app or with your voice. You can also use the app's Home & Away function to set up loction-based routines, so, for instance, your outdoor lights automatically switch on when you're about to arrive home. Both models let you choose from 16 million colors.

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 U.S. stores in the summer.

Calla bollard will retail for Dollars 129.99 / Euro 139.99 as base unit pack.

Philips isn't stopping with just white and color ambiance lights, though, as it will also offer other products like the Lucca, Tuar, Turaco, and Ludere lights in its white range.

You can get the bulbs starting in July throughout the United States and Europe. Products in this range are named Lucca, Tuar, Turaco and Ludere (United States only) and retail prices will start from Dollars 49.99 /EUR 69.99.

Philips Lighting will be showcasing its new Philips Hue outdoor portfolio at Light+Building 2018, at the Philips Lighting booth in Hall 0: Forum.
