This $46 kit has everything you need to get started with Philips Hue at its best price yet
Philips Hue smart lights may not be anywhere near as affordable as many other options, but they tend to be the most popular for good reason. Now you can see for yourself thanks to an Amazon discount on the Philips Hue White LED Smart Bulb Starter Kit (opens in new tab) that drops its price to just $45.98 for a limited time. This set has sold for up to $70 recently, though today's price marks the lowest it's reached in Amazon history. It's likely that it won't last for very long, either.
If you need some color in your smart home, you can get this multi-color 3-bulb starter kit (opens in new tab) on Amazon as well, though you'd have to pay quite a bit more for it. Since it's not drastically discounted like the White 3-pack, it's priced right under $150 currently. A smarter option would be to buy the starter kit above and then add multi-color bulbs (opens in new tab) as you go.

Philips goLITE BLU Rechargeable Energy Light
$130.40 $137.79 Save $7
This kit includes three white bulbs and the Philips Hue Bridge, which are all the things you'll need to start using smart lights. All you have to do is replace any A19 bulbs you have around the house with these new ones and use the Philips Hue app to connect the bulbs to your new Bridge. The Bridge then acts as a hub between the bulbs and your smart home ecosystem, letting you control the bulbs with your voice if you want.
You can also use the free app to set schedules, build routines, and turn them on and off without getting off the couch. Each bulb lasts for over 25,000 hours, meaning that you'll save money compared to the costs of replacement bulbs before even factoring in the energy-saving LEDs that should lower your monthly power bill.
Remember the Bridge can control a lot more than the three bulbs this kit comes with. Look out for more ways to expand your smart lighting with light strips, dimmer switches, and more (opens in new tab).
