The spotlight Philips Hue Lily costs $270 and comes with three lights, while the Calla is $129 and is created to illuminate pathways - both have access to 16 million different colors.

The Philips Hue white range offers a number of products matching the decor of your house.

They will be available in Europe and the United States in July. As WiFi range and consumer demand increases, products such as these will become more available.
