    Signify US expands Philips Hue ecosystem

    January 14, 2021

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


    • The new Philips Hue Amarant linear wall wash light bathes outdoor walls in colorful light and includes the ability to extend or add to existing Hue outdoor products via plug and play LowVolt wiring.
    • 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.


    Somerset, NJ – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, expands its Philips Hue portfolio in the United States with an outdoor light 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 wall wash light enables users to bathe outdoor walls with light to create the right ambiance in their yard no matter the season. The wall washing effect of vibrant light in millions of colors is intensified by the metal shield and spices up the look and feel of a blank wall in yards, patios, and terraces or on balconies. The Amarant can be mounted on the floor or upside down on an overhanging roof to take outdoor lighting 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.


    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 voice assistant: 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 easily 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 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 on any magnetic surface. Whether it’s on your refrigerator, a metal door frame or simply on a table, you and your house guests can always have easy access to control your smart lighting.

    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.”
