Use the "Home & Away" feature in the app to have your lights come on automatically when you get home.
It's easy to create and control inviting and colorful exterior lighting with this Appear outdoor wall light. The cylindrical fixture has integrated up- and down-focused LED lights that can display over 16 million colors and 50,000 shades of white light. It's a smart way to add some easy-to-adjust seasonal — or just plain fun — lighting to your front porch, outdoor dining area, and more.
Control it with the app
To set up the light, you'll need a Philips Hue Bridge (sold separately). Then, you can use the Hue mobile app to select color and brightness, right from your smartphone. Use it from anywhere at home, or even when you're not at home.
Use the "Home & Away" feature in the app to make your porch light come on automatically when you arrive home.
If you'd like to welcome your guests — or warn off intruders — with an automatically illuminated entrance, you can pick up an outdoor motion sensor to trigger the light when people approach.
Or use your voice
You can also control your lighting system hands-free if you've got a voice assistant. The Appear wall light works with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Google Assistant. That means you can turn your lights on or off, dim them, and recall your favorite presets just by asking.

More details on the Philips Hue Appear Outdoor Wall Light
Overview: The Philips Hue Appear Outdoor Wall Light can add color to the outside your home, or illuminate an entryway with soft white light. As part of the White and Color Ambiance series the Outdoor Wall Light can produce white light from warm white to cool daylight (2000 to 6500 Kelvin) and 16-million colors. Control of the brightness and color requires wireless connection to the Hue Bridge (sold separately, or included in a Hue Starter Kit). The Wall Light requires hardwiring to your home's electrical wiring.
Outdoor Wall Light: The Appear Outdoor Wall Light fixture consists of a 3-5/16" x 9-5/8" cylinder that emits light from both ends. The high-quality aluminum cylinder is attached to a 4-1/4" x 6" base. The two Wi-Fi controlled LED lights inside cast a triangular light above and below the fixture. The fixture has a rating of IP44, which means the fixture is protected from water splashing from all directions. The light has a 1200-lumen output, yet it only consumes 16 watts of power. The built-in light bulb (not user replaceable) has an estimated lifetime of up to 25,000 hours and 50,000 switching cycles. The Outdoor Wall Light weighs approximately 2.75 pounds.
Installing: Installing the light fixture should be performed by an experienced consumer or a certified electrician. The wall light should be installed onto a 4" round or hexagonal junction box. The three wire pigtails on the fixture (Black-Hot; White-Neutral; Bare-Ground) will need to be connected to the home's wiring with wire nuts (not included). After mounting the fixture, a bead of sealant should be applied around the edges of the base to prevent water or insects from entering the fixture.
Hue Compatible Products: This Appear Outdoor Wall Light not only works within the Philips Hue universe, but is compatible with many third party products, including many of the top voice assistants. Hue products work with Apple HomeKit (Siri), Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Cortana by Microsoft. Using simple voice commands, you can turn the lights on and off, dim or brighten the lights, and set a light scene. In addition, other "Friends of Hue" include IFTTT (If This, Then That), Logitech, Nest, Xfinity, and SmartThings.
