How to make the most of your garden this summer!


    May 10th, 2022


    However big or small, a garden can be used for several purposes and luckily, Philips Hue can help you get your front garden fit for purpose.


    A garden oasis, an inviting patio or even a cosy balcony – whatever the shape or size, or style forms an important part of our summers as we tend to step out more often, meet people or even host friends. However, bringing your garden back to life for the spring and summer months isn’t always an easy task. The garden needs to provide an ambience that is warm, cosy and inviting, in some cases you may be looking for a classy yet contemporary feel.

    Host a garden party or BBQ


    Your garden lights are often placed for function over form, giving all the aesthetics to the front of your home. With LED outdoor lights, you create the perfect ambiance without a whole lot of effort. Smart colour lights for the outdoors allow you to paint your garden, no matter how big or small, with light, adding splashes of colour to your dining area, outdoor grill, play area, and more.


    Colour smart LED lights also add an extra ‘oomph’ to events, no matter how casual. Your Friday night get-together or barbeque with friends becomes more special thanks to the simple addition of colour, while swanky soirees get an added touch of elegance with a subtle warm glow.

    Garden Party
    The Lily Outdoor Colour Ambiance Spotlight is perfect for any garden – it is easy to install, offers a multitude of colours to choose from, and allows you to highlight your favourite outdoor features in your garden! Our Lily range is compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit. You can enhance your outdoor space and create the right atmosphere for any occasion with Lily spot lights. The Hue bridge is required for set up.

    Make your garden work as a security marshall

    If you’re taking a trip to explore a new city, lie in the sun on the beach, or visit long-distance family or friends, making sure your home is safe while you’re away is often a top priority. Avoid those anxiety-inducing thoughts of “Did I leave the lights on?” or “Is someone sneaking around my house?” by taking the steps to help protect your home against unwanted visitors, households can make their connected LED lights their security marshall and ensure burglars and intruders are scared off.
    Welcome Floodlight
    The Welcome Floodlight can be connected to your existing Hue bridge to enjoy all the features that truly welcome you home. With millions of colour options, you can also create any ambience. 

    Get comfortable and get reading


    Thoughtfully placing outdoor lights is an easy way to boost the aesthetics of your home’s back garden, patio, porch, balcony or other outdoor areas. But you shouldn’t restrict yourself to your local garden centre’s regular old outdoor light collection — open your home to the convenience and versatility of outdoor smart LED lighting.

    Outdoor lightstrip
    The Outdoor lightstrip is ideal for direct and indirect lighting – it is easy to install, allows you to personalise your outdoor space and create a unique outdoor space. You can bend it, curve it, and light up pathways, highlighting features – making your outdoors yours. Our outdoor light strip range is compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit. The Hue bridge is required for set up.

    Make your garden a romantic spot for a memorable evening

    Porch lighting isn’t just for function — it can add much-needed aesthetic appeal to your home. If you’re looking to pump up your kerb appeal or make your garden ready for date night then Philips Hue can simply cast the impression you like to make it a night to remember.
    Dinner Scene
    The Appear wall light offers 16 million colours of subtle yet powerful light, by directing its beams both up and down, creating a sharp, directed triangle of light against the wall of your front or back patio. Our Appear outdoor wall light is compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit. The Hue bridge is required for set up.

    Get your garden ready for any holiday 


    Instead of stringing up colourful lights, you can simply set your outdoor lights to the color of your choice: bright red and green for Christmas, pastels for Easter and spooky orange lights for Halloween or even deck up the garden to celebrate fathers day that is just around the corner

    Appear Wall light
    The Nyro Outdoor pedestal is perfect for giving your garden walkway a sharp look. The Nyro outdoor pedestal is a sophisticated black outdoor fixture that features a subtle light effect, whether you're shining white light or one of 16 million colours. Our Nyro outdoor pedestal is compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit. The Hue bridge is required for set up.

    Host a dance party or an open air theatre evening


    Staying at home doesn’t have to mean staying on the couch. How about hosting a dance party to your fav tunes through the integration with Spotify or catching a movie in your personal open air theatre with the right lighting and ambience.
