Philips Hue is getting new outdoor options to light up your garden

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. Today it announced a new range of Hue lighting made specifically for outdoor use, giving you the same degree of control over your outdoor lights as you have over your indoor ones.

Finally, Calla is a bollard light, created to provide path or driveway lighting. We now know the product lineup will be available in July and span the company's three main ranges, Philips Hue white, Philips Hue white ambiance, and Philips Hue white and color ambiance.

The company says that it will be offering three types of outdoor lights in the U.S. and Europe in July ... Once connected to a standard Philips Hue hub, the lights can be controlled through the Hue app or a voice assistant. Existing indoor Hue lighting has starter packs from under $100, with add-on bulbs and accessories from $25.

Philips Hue Calla is ideal for path lighting and can also be used to enhance your outdoor space. The Home & Away function within the app can also be used to set the lights to come on a specific time and with Global Positioning System on your smartphone, you can get your outdoor lights to come on automatically when you return home.

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. 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. The products have a color temperature range of 2200-6500 Kelvin and feature 16 million colors.

A starter pack will cost $129.99. 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. That puts the Lily and Calla at $280/€299 and $130/€140 respectively, while the US-exclusive Hue White lamps will be priced from $50.
