    Switch up your smart home with the newest Philips Hue outdoor luminaires and accessories


    • The new Philips Hue Amarant linear spotlight washes outdoor walls in colorful light and includes the ability to extend via daisy-chain LowVolt wiring
    • The Philips Hue Appear outdoor wall light features a brushed stainless steel finish and easy mounting
    • The Philips Hue wall switch module gives smart control over existing traditional light switches
    • The redesigned Philips Hue dimmer switch features two ways to set light scenes and offers intuitive wireless control


    Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, expands its Philips Hue portfolio with two outdoor lights to further personalize gardens and porches, a new wall switch module that makes existing light switches smart, and a redesigned Philips Hue dimmer switch. Smart lighting, indoors and outdoors, has never been so easy to use.


    Wash your outdoor walls with light


    The new Philips Hue Amarant linear spotlight enables users to wash outdoor walls with light for the right ambiance in their garden no matter what season. The wall washing effect with vibrant light in millions of colours is intensified by the metal shield and spices up the look and feel of a blank wall in gardens or on balconies. The Amarant can be mounted on the floor or upside down on an overhanging roof to take outdoor light decoration to the next level. As part of the LowVolt luminaire collection, it’s easy to install and extend with more fixtures to fully personalize the ambiance of your outdoor space.


    The Philips Hue Appear, a popular outdoor wall light, now features a brushed stainless steel finish and easy installation. The inox wall light, which delivers a powerful up and down floating light effect in white and millions of colors, lends a luxurious feeling to the outdoor space. No need to struggle with wires when attaching the Appear, but easily mount the light to the wall using the pin-connector, sit back and relax.


    More control and convenience with new accessories


    The new Philips Hue wall switch module is the ideal addition to any Philips Hue set up. Installed behind existing light switches, it allows users to turn their existing switch into a smart switch and ensures their smart lighting is always reachable. Whether it is via the app or via voice control: no more getting up from the couch to turn on the switches that a family member or house guest might have turned off. Additionally, in the Hue app you can simply select light scenes and customize how the switch functions to personalize the ambiance even more. The Philips Hue wall switch module is battery powered and has a minimum battery life of at least five years.


    One of the most popular Philips Hue products has also been upgraded: the Philips Hue dimmer switch. The redesigned dimmer switch offers intuitive wireless control for Philips Hue lighting without using the app. In addition to dimming or brightening the room, the dimmer switch lets users set their favorite light scenes or get the best light based on the time of day. Attach it anywhere you like using the wall plate or place the dimmer switch to any magnetic surface. Whether it’s on your refrigerator, a metal door frame or simply on a table, your smart lighting can always be controlled by you or your house guests.

    We keep on expanding the Philips Hue portfolio to offer the easiest smart lighting to personalize the ambiance in every space in the house, whether it’s indoors or outdoors. With the new switches we are taking yet another step in offering true convenience and intuitive control for our consumers."
