Outdoor smart led lighting

I've been trying a bunch of projects around the home. For my latest I am thing about installing some backyard smart lighting. I want to install a waterproof outlet box for my poe cameras. It already has 1 outlet and I can add another. I then want to plug in a wired smart controller for the lights to it. I was originally going to just install
2 wired floodlights but then saw they offer smart led panels that offer color and daylight mode. I don't notice any that say they are made to be hardwired. Do they offer a hardwired version instead of plug ins? Has anyone seen something like that?

There are hardwired color-changing fixtures, but the ones I've seen are more commercial focused, and the price tag to go along with it - along with the controller requirements.

You can get smart bulbs for your existing fixtures. You just have to leave the power always on and you can program on/off times and colors as well as control them manually from an app. Phillips Hue is one.
