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.
In October, I already drew your attention to the Philips Hue outdoor power supply exchange programme. And now that some of you are getting your garden ready for spring, it's time to remind you of the story again. It's about the 40 Watt Outdoor Power Supply from Philips Hue. This was sold with the starter sets of the Hue Lily or Hue Calla, and the power supply of the Outdoor Lightstrips can also be affected.
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.
Yesterday, Signify introduced several new outdoor products at CES in Las Vegas. There are some very interesting new releases such as the Appear and Resonate wall lights with their up- and downward beams. But also the popular “plug-and-play” portfolio has been expanded by two low-voltage lights: Lily XL and the Impress wall light.
A few weeks ago we already had a first look, today Philips Hue officially presented its innovations for spring 2020 at CES. Just like last year, outdoor products will again be presented at CES, including a new more powerful spot. In this article we’ll present the models you can look forward to in the coming weeks.
