    I would be really interested in Hue Go christmas tree lights, even if just for the basic function of being able to see them light up on approach home, like all our other Hue lights do. Could you let me know if such a product is being considered?

      I second this. It would be a lovely holiday addition!

      Not aware of anything, you can use the light strips, however they are thick strips so may light up nicely, but won’t look great on the tree. A slimmer light strip would work better thats for sure.

      • Christopher C.

        You can use the philips hue outdoor light strips… They seem to look better from what i see… I would probably use em if I had the $$$ for it… But for now just use something like wemo… Or an amazon outlet… I currently have a wemo & works good…

    • Duane

      You could set up a smart power outlet that is controlled by Alexa or another smart home device. The outlet would turn on the power to the tree lights when you desire.
