Smart Lighting

If you’re a smart home enthusiast, odds are you already have a few bulbs from the Alexa-compatible Philips Hue line lighting up your home. Now you can bring these handy devices outside and turn your yard into a smart yard, because this smart lighting system now includes an outdoor product.

How It Works

Just like indoor Philips Hue lighting, the outdoor smart lighting system can be controlled by Alexa, Apple Home, or Google Assistant. You can pair it with your existing Nest products or Samsung SmartThings system. IT also has a motion sensor to automate smart lights upon movement and make the walk up to your door safer after dark.

All the Colors You Love with Added Durability

Philips Hue outdoor lighting still allows you to customize your lights with 16 million colors and set the mood for any occasion, from outdoor movie nights to backyard barbecues. It’s also perfect for holiday decorations—you can set the lights to green and red for Christmas or orange for Halloween and skip the tedious process of hanging string lights. The difference is that these lights are built to last outside for up to 25,000 hours and are built from weather-resistant materials.

Why Customers Love It

Amazon customers gave the Philips Hue outdoor lighting system 4.4 out of 5 stars—and one customer said their only regret was that they didn’t get them sooner. Customers loved that they were easy to install and that the light was super bright to completely illuminate walkways or patios.

Q: Tim, I need your help and advice. I bought a foreclosed house for a really great price. The entrance hall is two stories high and features a large front door with a semi-circular window above it. But for some reason, the architect off-centered the door and window in the porch alcove. My contractor says the door and window can’t be relocated, and even if could be, it would be prohibitively expensive. The facing brick in this alcove is already removed, so I don’t understand why it can’t be done. What say you? Have you ever done something like this? How long would it take to remove the door and window, create the new opening, and reinstall the door and window? --Vicky M. Orient, N.Y.

After living in a home or apartment with motion-sensing switches, it’s a safety convenience you take for granted. Whether you’re finding your way on a dark walkway outside or entering a room at night, a light switch with a sensor that turns on when it detects motion is very helpful. These sensors anticipate movement and make it safe going down a dark staircase to the basement, in public bathrooms and even while cruising the lighted freezer section in grocery stores; they conserve energy while providing instant lighting.
