Philips Hue Outdoor Motion Sensor in Development?

Written By

The motion sensor is a great add on for hue bulbs, and at the moment it is designed for indoor use only, that being said many people have used this outdoors without any issues, but Philips may just be planning one designed for specifically outdoor use.

As smart home blogger Dave Zatz via Twitter has found out, Philips Hue has already submitted documents and sketches for a Hue Outdoor Outdoor Sensor at the US Communications Equipment Authorities .

With the release of a whole range of different Hue outdoor bulbs, lights and fittings it makes sense for an outdoor sensor to be released, how different it will be to the indoor one we don’t know, but by the looks of it, instead of redesigning and realising a new motion sensor that can be used indoors and outdoors, it is going to release one septically for outdoor use.

With outdoor use it could have a large detection range making it suitable for security which would be a good and useful feature.

We shall update with anymore news as soon as we find out more.

Do you need and want one? Or do you use your indoor motion sensor outdoors already?

    I can’t really see the point of spending much money on outdoor Hue lights without the sensor, so this is good news – I definitely want one!
