This time, we’re going to have a better look at the Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Light, and see just what makes it better compared to other similar products available. Is it worth investing in? Is it as good as they claim it to be?
First up, let’s see what’s included inside the box of this outdoor spotlight.
Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Light Review – What’s in the Box?
What we have is the white and colour ambiance of the Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Light. It came in a classy-looking package with a black and violet theme that appears to be gradient-like. We really liked how they presented the box since it gives off a premium vibe which is really good.
There isn’t much to see on the exterior of the package. Just the front where it displays an image of the product, the company’s name, and some of the highlighted features of the Hue Lily. On the sides and at the back of the box, you will find more information and details about the spotlights which is really convenient.
When we looked inside the main box, we saw a collection of other smaller packages. Quite surprising, but we really find this extremely helpful since there are a couple of different components present in the box. By sorting everything out and keeping things segregated, it’s a bit easier to figure out what you have, and it’s quicker to find the items that you need.
Each of the smaller boxes holds one of the three spotlights; plus, the box comes with a stake that’s used for setting these lights into the ground. The biggest box of all contains all the necessary splitters, cables, and other accessories needed to get the Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Light up and running.
Aside from the Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Lights, the following items are also included in the package. These are the PSU or plug with transformer that has a 2.9-meter cable, three 5-meter extensions cables, two connectors, and a total of three mounting parts that you can use for the wall or the ground. Since this can be expanded, each of the add-on kits feature another spot, an extra connector, and one of the long extensions.
Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Light Review
Each of the Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Lights are made of aluminum, giving you sleek-looking spotlights that are made just for outdoors. The product is sealed securely, so there’s no way to access the bulbs; and with that, you’ll get to see the bulbs from the top-most part of the light.

Aside from being made of aluminum, it also comes with a nice matte finish which adds to its premium look, feel, and construction. The Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Light is sealed tightly for it to achieve that IP65 waterproof-rating. This is a necessary feature to protect the lights from jets of water and dust.

This Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Light sports a 2000 to 6500 hue white color ambiance and a mains power that has a range of 220 to 240 Volts, 50 to 60Hz.
The bulb included is 8 Watts and the same bulb-Wattage is needed when replacing this. In addition, it is IP65-rated and sports a Class-III type of protection which gives it safe, extra low Voltage.
What’s good about this is that it comes with a warranty of 2 years for everyone’s convenience.

Using the Product
Like every other light from Hue, the Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Light can work efficiently with HomeKit, and its base itself links to the Hue Bridge – this is something required but not included in the package.
If you’ve previously setup Hue, adding the Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Light will require you to sync your earlier setup to the Home application. This can be done by accessing the settings on Hue. This will notify you via a series of exclamation points.
Once you access the Home application, the lights will appear individually which will allow you to adjust the color, brightness, and even the white temperature.
Each of the lights are capable of letting out 640 Lumens of light; and in a couple of areas we tried these on, they were very sufficient and the output was brighter than we expected. Another thing we liked about the Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Light is that they aren’t just capable of displaying different shades of white, but they can release a vast color spectrum too.
All in all, the Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Light lights up excellently, and it can make your lighting exterior more fun and better, especially when you start sliding through its color wheel. Would we recommend this? Definitely.
The Philips Hue Outdoor Spot Light is a high-quality smart light with a durable construction that is excellent for outdoor use. We really enjoyed our experience upon trying these spot lights out and we think that the price is definitely just right for what it delivers.
