How will Philips Hue smart lighting transform the outdoor lighting market?

Leading lighting brand Philips Hue, who specialize in lighting that creates ambience in spaces, are releasing a line of smart outdoor bulbs just in time for barbeque season.

No strangers when it comes to smart lighting, the Hue indoor range connects to the Philips Hue Bridge, a device that enables homeowners to control bulbs through a smartphone app. The device is compatible with a number of chatty assistants including Apple HomeKit and Amazon Alexa.

The smart outdoor bulbs will function in the same way and can even be programmed to turn on at certain times, providing homeowners with an atmospheric glow on cue, perfect for summer evenings spent entertaining guests outside.

Steven Ellwood, Managing Director at BLT direct said: “Philips Hue has expanded their offering once again and are delighting customers with their new outdoor range that includes bulbs in more than 16 million colour choices.

“Smart lighting really does redefine what it means to have control over the mood that people are able to create in both their home and their garden.

“It’s no longer just a case of switching lights on and off, smart lighting increases functionalities and means that those who choose it can play around with dimming, timing, colours and colour temperature, all of which can be adjusted to suit mood and activity.”

Those yet to dabble in smart lighting should consider the merits of choosing a starter kit, which offers a flexible system straight out of the box and often includes multiple bulbs for increased coverage around the home.

Philips Hue starter kits are available in ‘white’ and ‘white ambience’, allowing users to change the colour temperature from a bright, white light to a soft, warm light depending on the mood they are keen to create.

BLT Direct stocks a comprehensive range of domestic and commercial lighting solutions ideally suited to a number of environments. Keen to update your garden in time for the summer months? Their range of outdoor lighting includes wall lights, security lights and solar lights.
