In summer 2018, Philips Hue launched its low-voltage outdoor series. Starting with Calla and Lily, the portfolio has now grown to dozens of different products, even the officially indoor-only Hue Festavia light chain uses the same cables and connectors. But it is precisely with these cables and connectors that Philips Hue seems to have at least minor problems with quality.
With the new Philips Hue Amarant, Signify's popular and practical low-voltage system received a great new addition in January and there are probably one or two users who are currently planning their 2021 garden. Soon there could be more possibilities in this respect. I can't confirm this completely at the moment, but I have received initial indications that the 2.5-metre outdoor cable and the T-part could soon be sold separately.
I am always happy to receive your replies and ideas. But when I get an email like the one from Hueblog reader Philipp, I can't help but write an article directly. This installation is really impressive – and a great problem solver, too.
