Kickstart your smart home with this discounted Echo Dot and Philips Hue Bluetooth bulb bundle

Amazon Prime Day is the absolute best time of year to kickstart your smart home with deals galore on smart speakers and home tech. If you're new to smart home stuff, you can get in on the fun for just $32 with a heavily discounted Amazon Echo Dot bundle (opens in new tab) that includes two Philips Hue smart bulbs. What's even better is the fact that these are the new Philips Hue with Bluetooth bulbs meaning you don't have to shell out for an expensive additional hub to make them work.

Considering the Echo Dot (opens in new tab) regularly sells for $50 alone when not on sale — it's just $22 right now for Prime Day, if you don't want or need the bulbs — and the bulbs cost $30 for a two-pack (opens in new tab), you're saving a huge chunk with this bundle.

Your Echo Dot gives you access to all of Alexa's smarts meaning you can play music, make calls, set alarms and timers, ask questions, and shop. Alexa's always getting smarter, too. There are over 50,000 skills (opens in new tab) to choose from, like fun games, music to soothe your animals, real-time news updates, and even guided meditation. Play podcasts. Listen to audiobooks. Control compatible smart home devices (opens in new tab). There's so much your Echo devices can do.

The deal is good for the duration of Prime Day or until sold out and, of course, it is an exclusive offer for Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) members.
