Update: The price is back up to $165.
It’s not exactly the flying cars and robot armies we were promised by science fiction, but being able to say “Alexa, turn my living room pink” is a pretty good start. This deal on the Philips Hue 3rd Generation Starter Kit comes from top-rated thecloseoutguys.com on eBay. The user page has a ton of positive reviews, and the product comes with a 90-day warranty.
The starter kit itself is refurbished, so it’s being offered at a discount. When you add it to the cart you get another $15 off, bringing the total down to $135. Compared to buying this same kit on Amazon or elsewhere, that’s a savings of $60 or more.
The starter kit comes with three color LED light bulbs and a bridge to connect all the lights together. It also works seamlessly with Alexa’s voice control and the free app you can download to your smartphone.
