  • Published on: April 27, 2017

Update: This popular deal is back again, so if you missed out get yours now.

Philips Hue lights are one of the most common smart home accessories, but getting started with them can be expensive. Right now you can pick up the third-gen Starter Kit for just $168.51 at Amazon, which is a savings of just over $31. This kit comes with three of the 3rd-gen LED color bulbs and a Hue Bridge 2.0. The bridge enables scene and room control, and you can use it with both Amazon’s Alexa as well as Apple’s HomeKit to control the lights with your voice.

Some of the other great features include:

  • Works with Amazon Alexa to support dimming, shades of white, and color settings through voice control (hub required, Alexa device and Philips hub sold separately)
  • 3rd generation starter kit includes 3 Color LED light bulbs with richer colors (deeper shades of Green, cyan, and blue) and a bridge 2.0 that wirelessly connects up to 50 lights
  • The square-shaped Philips hue bridge 2.0 enables scene and room control with Amazon Alexa, is compatible with Apple HomeKit technology and provides you with more internal storage
  • Choose from 16 million colors and 50, 000 shades of white light, from warm to cool white
  • Sync your lights with your music, movies, and games for an immersive effect

It may seem like a lot of money to spend on connected lights for your house, but this is actually a pretty great deal. Once you’ve got the Starter Kit set up, you can add Lightstrips (which are 20% off right now), additional bulbs and much more. Stop dreaming of color-changing smart lights and get your collection of them started today!
