Philips Hue outdoor lights review: Change the way your garden looks with these powerful and fun colour-changing lights.

Easy to install ; Brings outside spaces to life ; Excellent app and voice-assistant control

Philips Hue Review | Trusted Reviews


Philips Hue is the smartest, easiest to configure and best-supported way to make your lighting more intelligent and atmospheric.

High quality white, temperature changing and colour lightbulbs ; Outstanding ecosystem of apps ; Large range of add-on lights ; IFTTT recipe support

Plastic remote controls ; Can't save colours or temperatures easily

The most flexible and powerful lighting system, Philips Hue is the smart replacement your home has been waiting for.

Philips Hue


Philips is the undisputed leader in smart home lighting – lights that you can control over Wi-Fi and support multiple colours. It has the largest range of bulbs and lighting options, and it's supported by a huge number range of apps, services and...

High quality white and colour lightbulbs ; Outstanding ecosystem of apps ; Large range of add-on lights ; IFTTT recipe support

Inelegant bridge system ; Underdeveloped native app ; No HomeKit support (yet)

Hue’s still the best smart lighting system, despite some rough edges.

Philips Hue review and guide: lighting the way towards our smart home future


If you're installing smart lights at home, then you have to consider Philips Hue

Philips Hue review


Updated 31//17: A Philips Hue software upgrade will bring 'surround sound for your eyes' later this year. Say what?

Vast range of bulbs, lightstrips, lamps and accessories ; Great new app adds some really smart new features ; HomeKit and IFTTT makes it friendly with other devices and apps

Far from cheap ; We'd hoped HomeKit would have opened up even more possibilities by now

In practically every way this is the Sonos of smart lighting, and that's a mighty compliment indeed.

Smart lighting that connects to more than just your phone

Philips Hue's outdoor HomeKit sensor eyeballs your smart home


This weather-ready outdoor sensor from Philips Hue tracks motion, temperature and ambient light, and can trigger your lights and gadgets accordingly.

Hue's Outdoor Sensor works with Apple HomeKit, and it's actually three sensors in one -- motion, temperature and ambient light. The app's sensitivity controls are the best I've seen for a device like this, with accurate real-time feedback that makes it...

The Hue app doesn't currently do anything with those temperature readings, and it forces you to go into the settings to see any information about the sensor at all. Also, our lights didn't always jump to the correct scene when motion was detected.

This accessory is a decent and reasonably priced add-on for existing Philips Hue households -- especially if you're interested in Hue's new lineup of outdoor lights.

Philips Hue 2.0 Starter Kit review: A new Hue, with Siri, too


The second-gen Philips Hue Starter Kit works with Siri for voice-activated lighting changes.

Philips Hue 2.0 adds Apple HomeKit to a long, impressive list of compatible smart home platforms. Sync your bulbs up with your iOS device, and you'll be able to trigger lighting changes by asking Siri.

The second-gen bulbs aren't noticeably better than the old ones, and suffer from many of the same flaws with brightness and color accuracy. The app would have also benefited from an ease-of-use upgrade -- it didn't get one.

Philips Hue's LEDs are still the color-changing bulbs to beat, but they're still awfully expensive -- and the competition is catching up quickly. Apple HomeKit integration is a big step forward for the software, but it's disappointing that the hardware...
