It’s not too late to get ready to give trick-or-treaters a fright on Halloween night. Philips Hue offers 20% discounts on various HomeKit-compatible multicolor lighting packages. Think what you could do with a well-placed Grim Reaper and a motion-activated spotlight, for example. And maybe a blood-red lightstrip along the hedge. Throw in a few fiery jack-o’-lanterns, and you’re good to go.

Philips Hue Halloween Sale

The Philips Hue Halloween Sale offers various bundles intended to give you options for multicolor lighting in your front yard, or whatever outdoor space you have.

You’ll need a Philips Hue Bridge to connect you spooktacular lights to HomeKit or another smart home system. You should also get an outdoor plug if you don’t already have one. Philips Hue provides everything else in its bundles.

Outdoor Lightstrip and Outdoor Motion Sensor bundle

You might consider the Outdoor Lightstrip and Outdoor Motion Sensor bundle, priced at $119.98 rather than the normal $150 you’d pay for the combined elements.

You can set up the lightstrip to turn on with various lighting effects with the motion sensor that the trick-or-treaters will trip as they trundle up to your door.

Philips Hue Smart Outdoor Lightstrips

Whether it’s Halloween or not, you can smarten up your home’s exterior with Philips Hue smart lightstips. Through HomeKit and the Philips Hue app, you’ll have command of 16 million colors and warm-to-cool white light.

You can shape and bend an outdoor lightstrip to illuminate outdoor spaces however you’d like. Mounting clips help you place lightstrips anywhere, like along a deck railing, across window shutters or along the garden path.

Shipping is free on everything in the Philips Hue Halloween Sale. The website spotlights various ideas for Halloween smart light use and otherwise.
