Automate your lights for easy control and comfort. Add a Philips Hue white PAR38 outdoor floodlight to your system and enhance your outdoors with powerful bright white light that you can control remotely. Screw it into your existing PAR38 fixtures. Automate your lights to welcome you home. Hue bridge not included.
Set timers for convenience
Have your Philips Hue lights turn on automatically by setting schedules or use sunset/sunrise routine. And of course, you can also turn off or dim your lights this way.
Requires a Philips Hue bridge
Connect your Philips Hue lights with the bridge to control your lights from your smartphone or tablet via the Philips Hue app.
I use this in my front/back porch with timers for automated on/off function (using the HUE app). Brightness is good for lighting a small area. Highly recommended if you're planning a full automated home, if not, a regular flood lamp at a much lower price point would probably suffice.
These are the connected flood bulbs to own. I have had ge link and sylvania. These are much better. They just work. The others loose connection and have to be relinked. They work with hue accessories too, such as switches and motion sensors. Home kit functionality as well. They should’ve made these years ago. The only thing that would make these better is a white/ color version. Use them daily with out failing. Grand slam Philip’s Hue!
A:AnswerThese are outdoor bulbs, but I actually use them indoors in a lamp, since they are brighter than the standard A19 Hue bulbs. The 'PAR' part just refers to the size of the bulb itself. The bulb base (the part that screws into the light socket) is the same as a standard light bulb. Since these bulbs are LED, they do not produce the heat that you find with a regular incandescent bulb, so use in recessed lighting would be absolutely fine.
A:AnswerThe lights must have power going to them to be operational. If you want to control them from your phone app, then you would leave the wall switch in the "On" position all the time. However, you can use the wall switch to turn the lights on and off if you like. We do it both ways.
A:AnswerThese probably will not fit. These are more meant for outdoor recessed lighting and are substantially larger than the A19 lights.
A19: 2.2 x 2.2 x 4.2 inches
PAR38 (these): 4.7 x 4.7 x 4.9 inches
