Philips' outdoor range of Hue lighting seems to be centered around two lights in particular.

Simply connect your exterior lights to your Hue bridge, and you'll be able to control them with the app, or with Alexa, Siri, or Google Assistant.

Philips promised in January this year that it was going to release a slew of new products in the coming months. The bulbs will be available in multi-color or white and will ship in July. The products were to include a line of outdoor Hue lighting products that would be released in the summer. The company has now confirmed that the Philips Hue outdoor lights will be available for purchase this July. Your outdoor lights can also be triggered by the Home & Away function in the Hue app.

Among the new range is a spotlight called Lily meant to "highlight the key design features in your garden, illuminating handsome flower beds, or potted plants".

Finally, Calla is a bollard light, created to provide path or driveway lighting.

Google Doodle celebrates 180th birth anniversary of Sir William Henry Perkin
Until the mid-1800s, purple clothing was hard to come by and restricted only to those who could afford the expensive fabrics. At the age of 14, Mr Perkin attended the prestigious City of London School - setting him on a path of scientific discovery.

All Philips Hue outdoor products are designed for outdoor use and easy to install.

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. With the Hue app, you can choose from 16 million different colors for your lights to shine. 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.

Lily is available in a pack of three for $279.99. United States only: the PAR38 lamp will retail for Dollars 29.99 for a single pack and double pack for Dollars 49.99.

This new outdoor range of lights will be available beginning in July in both the U.S. and Europe.

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