The future is here! Control your lights with your voice with the Philips Hue starter kit

  • Published on: May 19, 2017

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.

If you decide to go in on this deal and want to dig a little deeper by adding more Philips Hue bulbs, light strips or even Alexa-empowered devices, visit this Amazon page.
